CGAddict's Sketchbook (nudity)

Postby cgaddict » Sat Jul 12, 2014 8:52 pm

Decided to start a sketchbook here to help improve my technique. I'll be posting sketches, speedpaints, current WIPs, etc. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

I'm currently working on an illustration of Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love. Here are some steps:

Thanks for looking, as always any comments are welcome!

algenpfleger: Hannes! How's it going man? Great to see you here! Thanks for the warm welcome!

Luna: Thanks, it's a bit oversaturated at the moment, need to watch out for that....

I worked on the image for several more hours, it's finally coming together... Any feedback is always welcome :)

are you using palettes while painting. Limiting yourself to a few colors would probably restrict your painting. Watch out for that o.o
keep posting :D

sachsapne: Thanks for the tip, I'm working with a color palette which I now have in it's own layer. I tend to work a bit monochromatic at first to concentrate on the values, then I make more brave color choices as I progress... I'll try to be a bit more bold though in the future.

Another update, added some more detail here and there and refined the lighting a bit:

Luna: Thank you! The figure's pose is referenced from 3DSK. Good point about the ankle, I altered it a bit, hopefully it's better now!

Started painting the portrait, here is the current progress:

Not completely satisfied with the skin tones, a bit monochromatic but I tend to focus more on values in the early stages.

haha, you should also doing some Sketches as well for helping the color study~ I feel your shape seems good, but between the shadow and the light are a tiny bit not right....
And~~ Very nice rendering in the first illustration ^_^
I am looking forward to more stuff

hey man, good to have you here! your brushwork is looking nice! i'd like to see some studies, especially the colors look a bit formulaic at the moment, a bit plasticy and dead, not sure if that makes any sense.gogogo!

Luna: Thanks for your input, glad you like the rendering of the first illustration :)

algenpfleger: Thanks, glad to be here! Glad you dig my brushwork! Good point about the colors, I do a lot of experimenting with that as I progress with the painting.... Generally speaking I try to find a good balance with natural tones while trying to give the colors a bit of an ethereal quality as well....

Here's the latest update on the portrait:

hey man, watch out for edges, they looks really randomly placed, like eyes are super soft and lower lip super hard ! just remember " hard on the light, softer of the shadow " for now, then when you'll master this one, you can move on to another one !

Kikindaface: Thanks, I've been receiving a lot of criticism on how I handle edges as of late, that's definitely my weak spot; Thanks for your suggestion, I'll be sure to apply it for future works!

Some updates; First, a character commission piece, followed by a character design from imagination, a PoseManiacs study, and some sketches for some environments based on photo reference:

dynamiter0ll : Great suggestion, I think I'll do some figure studies from imagination on a daily basis if I find the time, thanks!

Some updates, did some drawings from imagination and began on a new painting, 'Artemis'. The figure was referenced from GentlemansClubStock from DeviantArt:

Here's the current progress on Artermis. Didn't do much work on the figure, concentrated mostly on the environment. The grass was ridiculously time consuming to paint and they still have some ways to go, but it's getting there.

Hey cg, really enjoying looking through your paints man. I think you should try putting your focus on selective refinement. Right now you seem to be polishing everything within each piece. This is good practice but makes the image kinda boring, no offense of course, try finishing elements of a piece that you want to be your main viewing points, everything else should be secondary and not garner much attention.
