Is the neck too long?
its By Ross Tran, he has a really awesome personality.
Oh, definitely long. But hey he's still human, being asian and pretty good still doesn't make you a perfect god.
As for his personality, is he really like that in real life though? he sounds very quiet in livestreams for the majority of them, so I wonder it's all an act and if his videos are like that on purpose for entertainment value.
>the anatomy in general
To not make this a waste of time, here's a pasta from anatomy for sculptors, I dont know why people dont study these books before jumping into doing fx and shit, I guess normies look at your piece for 1 sec anyway and move on, so they dont notice consciously why it looks so wrong, but whatever, every artist that has his fundamentals down can tell instantly you have a lot of work to do.
I bet you think you're anatomy pro right now.
Long necks aren't bad, but in that pic it just feels off.
Not OP, but that's still wrong. If you imagine the bones on the back of that dude's neck, considering they start at the base of the skull, they're either too long or too many. Michelangelo needed some Loomis there.
Dude, don't look at the front, look at the back. If you line it up, where the neck begins in the back is closer to the base of the head, unlike the statue where if you map that the difference between front and back still isn't that big, which gives you a distance almost as long as the front indicates, but not for the girl. She still has a long neck, though, and it's probably because she has long proportions in general I mean she's huge... This conversation is dumb anyways, the point is: the pic in the OP is fucked up.
Not saying it was the case in Ross Tran's example, but elongated necks have occasionally been aesthetic choice.
It was seen to be a sign of elegance by some people.
is bad if i like it?
pretty sure the author is competent enough to notice it, but he choiced to let it like that. there's clearly a superlative femenine stimulus in impossibly long, thin necks
I don't know what you're talking about, /ic/ gets assmad at uppity/cunty artists no matter how good they are. So evidently, it does matter.
bruh this guy just graduated Art Center, worked at Disney, and is running his own class at Brainstorm amongst John Park and James Paick
What do your pedantic standards when they only matter to you and every other circlejerking autist on /ic/
It's depressing how someone like him keep getting support and is even teaching at Brainstorm. I guess many people bought HIS LOVE on patreon.
Beautiful portrait. The neck is just a little long though...
he's actually kind of an asshole
went to school with him
he's cocky and narcissistic and has his groupies do tons of shit for him
networking is part of the game, but he straight up uses people
messaged my friend out of the blue one day, then asked to borrow his TV the next day for grad show
never spoke to him since
like who does that
Our atelier was all about teaching craft and painting/drawing, only with traditonal mediums though. They were open minded enough tough to bring in a sculptor from Weta to hold a workshop and a animator who studied under Vilppu so they weren't totally stuck up either.
The wors part is that I think it'd look better if he actually drew it himself, but he decided to bash the shit out of most of it instead of going over the things and at least making them cooler. It's a shame.
Look what I just found. This nigga recycled his own face drawing for another piece. I'm not even sure what should I feel like about that.
Yup, no doubt about that, it's pretty cool.
I did some quick digging and the process video for Azula on Youtube already started with an off-screen made sketch. You can see the layers Background, Layer 2 and Layer 3. The drawing of the jiraffe could've easily been Layer 1, and he traced the face without showing it to not look like a lazy fuck. Either way, he still produced a good piece.
what do you mean by 'recycled'?
like photobashed? or recycling the concept?
when you overlay there is enough difference (even flipping, resizing) that I'm more inclined to believe he just has an established, very formulaic way of painting foward-facing female portraits, something like same face syndrome.
If you're talking about the concept, then sure, it's certainly boring but foward-facing bust portraits are easy too do and aren't exactly rare.
the fucking collarbones end up beign squished down because they are unable to grow because of the rings around the neck. So it's not that the neck is longer just the collarbones shoulders and clavicle are pushed down.
So it looks like they have crazy long necks.
And then someone shoped it to be retarded long looking.
I mean the face lines up with the pic in the OP. The placement and size of almost everything, but not in a ctrl+c, ctrl+v and pait different hair ad clothes way, but more like he traced a basic sketch on top of the face, erased the picture again and painted over the sketch. Nothing to go crazy about, really, but still.
>Alien bitch with a long neck
fuck off then why so many in Disney and pixar then? like this dude too and tbqh pham their work is not too bad, they have a lot of fundamentals down that kids here dont have, its unbveliuevable
Most of the major studios are in Cali, Cali has a bunch of asians, Asians who can afford to move to the USA usually come from relatively well off families in both wealth and education.
Nobody has time to paint a character for 10 hours
How does /ic/ not understand the difference between concept art and concept design yet why are we still crying about this?
So they either have a strict formula, or they aren't able to do anything else? women have varying faces, not just hair and eye color you know. Different proportions, different noses, different eyes, lips, some dare I say are even ugly. It's not just us. Nothing against them really, but you'd think people with the power to create anything would want to create more than one or a few faces. I'm only now getting into digital art and I'm already overwhelmed by the vast creative possibilities, so it feels weird to see someone sticking to only one thing, consciously or otherwise.
>There are people who have long necks like that to reach the leaves in higher branches.
>their styles are so similar
>not being able to tell the differences between Ross Tran and Sakimichan
I won't suck one or the other's dick, but they're SO different. I'll make half of the work for you by telling the things they do actually have in common:
>pretty colors/color dodge
>sort of but not quite realistic, slightly anime-ish style
That's about it. And that describes like 1/4 of the most popular artists nowadays.
