hey Zip! With the exception of one image (the green sketches of the old lady) everything traditional I've posted is in a non-erasable medium. Mostly ball-point pen/micron and Tombow dual brush pens. I also use a Pentel Pocket brush a lot, and I like faber-castell brush pens a bit for doing lines sometimes. My current process is using a very light blue/gray Tombow to lightly sketch, then go over it with pen. Right now I'm using a Horizon Ohto mechanical pen a lot, seems better than most. But yea, no erasing.

some digital studies, trying to figure out the major types of fabric folds. ZigZag scrunched up ones still don't make a ton of sense to me. Clothing is definitely a huge weakness of mine.

I'm doing some more work with my alien world project, and since the main alien has a lot of monkey-esque traits, I did some some monkey skull studies (mostly Tarsir and Lemur) to help me understand his head shape better.

Those fold studies from a while back look pretty useful.

Your vehicle designs are coming along well too. Well, at least to my inexperienced designing brain, haha. They're appealing to look at.

Don't have anything to crit at the moment but glad you're posting again. Your art's fun to look at.

did a really quick sketch of a plane out of a book yesterday. it's a Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey. Some kinda v/stol aircraft that looked sorta cool with it's jumbo propellers.

Also hey Enydimon, glad my stuff is fun to look at! the fold studies were really helpful, i should probably go back over those because i'm still really bad at fabric. Looks like you've been around here forever, what kinda stuff do you do professionally if you don't mind me asking?

I'm doing a weekly livestream on twitch creative every monday @ 10:00am Pacific Time, started doing this like a month and a half ago, and plan on doing it from now on. Today I was studying some old european architecture that I like, specifically one of the more famous Transylvanian castles. Come say hi next Monday if you want to :)

Hey Hainsaw, to answer your question I'm just kind of part time with the art stuff for the moment for a couple of personal reasons. A lot of it's small time clients and the occasional photobash for documentary animations. I'm hoping to eventually find myself in a studio at some point.

Really dig the colours on that study. It's interesting to see the difference between the original photo and the end drawing and how it matches up to your personal style. Is there anything you look for when putting together palettes in general?

Hey Enydimon, hope you get that studio gig then! I'm curious which studio you'd really wanna work at.

As for the colors, I wasn't trying to do anything fancy with them on this study at all haha. I knew i only had about an hour for the study and the shapes and perspective were more than enough to focus on. At any rate I had no intention of using the colors from the photo because the photo is horribly exposed. I was just translating the colors of the photo into local colors that read well together and kept them light so my linework was visible. So I'm thinking "Stone is light tan, I want more saturated stone color not really represented in the photo to accent certain parts of big tan shapes. I don't want wood or trees to be so dark. I want the highest point of contrast to be the cast shadow from the roof on the wood, to accent the forms."

Picking colors is tough though; like any other part of the process it can go in any direction and it's up to you to sort of decide what feels good. When I'm picking colors I usually have a few important things in mind. These are just fuzzy rules that I've developed and don't necessarily apply to everyone's process; I'm still learning.

1. the relationships between colors are more important than the specific colors you pick.

2. overall readability, colors are informative of function/material
If the palette is too varied, it can hurt the readability. At the beginning of my process, I try to limit myself to just a few colors and branch out once I have the major hues and values figured out. One of the most fun things about coloring is that you have complete control over contrast and the viewers attention. They will naturally focus on areas of high contrast, high saturation, and will take in big shapes before small details.

3. guiding the eye with hue/value/saturation
Rule of thumb is to put your most saturated colors where you want people to look. So when i'm thinking about colors for a whole image, i'm thinking less about "how saturated are the colors" and more about "in what order do i want people to notice what's in the image. I also like to try and communicate large shapes of low chroma with a large number of color analogues. This is really tricky because desaturated colors often feel drab, the key is to vary hues in a narrow range. If I have green next to yellow green, I think of yellow green as BEING yellow, if that makes sense.

4. how light affects color saturation, local colors vs. how color should feel
With everything else established, I still need to think of lighting fundamentals as they relate to colors and know that your most saturated colors are in your mid-tones and your colors are going to hue shift as they get lighter or darker, generally towards a warm color in highlights and a cool color in form and cast shadows. Light bounces around and drops color from one object to the next, so your colors have that affect on each other as well. One last thing I think is worth mentioning is that, while grass is green, that doesn't mean it has to be green to FEEL green. This goes back to point #1. Teal is not a very true green, but if your scene is full of purples and blues, teal is green to us now because it's the most green thing we can see.

Hope this stuff makes sense, It's sort of hard to talk about color theory without pictures XD

Actually I found that post very useful so thanks!

Oh and regarding the studio stuff, I don't have any big names in mind atm but I do have my eye on Big Viking Games. Not necessarily for the games that they make but for the environment, benefits, and the proximity. My cousin actually works there so it's nice to know someone who can vouch for the work environment and ask questions.

Wish I could pop in for those streams but unfortunately I'm EST and am usually busy at that time on Mondays. My next Monday should be free tho, maybe I'll catch you then.

I think the only thing I can really nitpick with those faces is that the 3/4th positions look a little too flat around the eyes. You're drawing the eye socket areas in but they don't always look like they affect the planes.

Some more life drawings. Blue Tombow kicked the bucket after the first session so used pink + red for part of the second one. Doing multiple characters is still difficult for me, especially with the costumes.

Did my Monday @10 Twitch stream today. Been playing Breath of the Wild a lot with my girlfriend, and I need a lot of practice with quadrupeds, so I decided to study horses today. I feel like I learned a lot, but I still don't have a perfect grasp on how the front legs attach to the torso.
