My god - your shading techniques are absolutely mind-blowing. That fully shaded figure drawing... I have no words! You have such beautiful work - thank you very much for sharing these with us! You provide such inspiration!
I wish i could draw like You even having a model... D:.
I could went to art school, but it gaves us no future here in Poland i mean... The system, OFC it's democratical and almost alright, but theres nothing You can do after You know... Education of this type, that's why i'm in Bio-Chemistry-Geograph-Physics class so... In High School... (Musical LMAO)
It's not like here you can do much with the certification i'm getting, that's why i'm not taking school seriously and that's why i'm going out of the country. I think after various experiences i can say i am good enough that i don't have to look for commissioners because they are looking for me, so the last thing i need is an official paper about the obvious fact that i'm a graphic designer.
I'll upload more artnip after i slept some. When i wrote i would submit 2 more i didn't calculate that i'll want to sleep. Those figure drawings are from art class; art class lasts for 7 hours so we have plenty of time to draw and we draw real models. That's the easiest way to draw something realistic: copy reality on the spot. Doesn't seem to help me draw fantasy though.
I shall wait for that! c8 And that's kinda what happens to me pretty often, I'm all "I'll do this th-oh half my body's already asleep. Daemn". >3>;; I've tried drawing from real models but my style pushes through everything. .noes: It's like an unstoppable force that I need to get rid of if I want to ever draw realistic things. |B Nooo, you just don't notice it does because no artist ever notices things like that in their art! xD
It isn't easy to get over realism either if it's how your brain is set to draw by default. It's so bad. I try to draw something that is not realistic and i immediately get the "hey hey hey that's not how it looks like, correct it IT'S MAKING MY BRAIN ITCH" sentence from my subconscious. xD
My problem is that my brain's silent but the hands keep on drawing everything the same way no matter how hard I try xD I've drawn over a photo once and still managed to make the picture cartoonish so... I have a lot to learn. |B Then... you need to show your brain who's the boss. Somehow...
I love them too. I probably shouldn't say that i melt from the cuteness whenever i see her yawn, fart or poo but i do. Anyway it's the most common turtle species so you'll probably see them again somewhere else.
They are called angels and they were inspired by christian angels. On some random school lesson i drew a usual random creature that evolved into these species, received a story and purpose and that's it. They just reflect my viewpoint on this religion and this religion's followers. Of course that doesn't show in their appearance but in their culture and purpose in their world.
I don't have favorite 3D artists, i just LOVE IT ALL. Last time i was curious about a 3D animation's creators was when i watched The Legend of the Guardians. I liked it.
Haha yeah I found out their name afterwards. It really came from Christianity? I would've never guessed! That's cool how you got the idea from religion :3 Cool concept too! And their anatomy actually makes sense and isn't completely bs-ed to the point of 'Oh... jeez... that's... nice art? O.o -backs away slowly-'. It's more like... 'RAAAWR I LOVE THESE PEOPLE' and you probably get that a lot xD
I haven't seen it but I read all of the books a few years ago ^^ I'm aiming to study Animation at (I HOPEEEEE!) SCAD :3 but that's almost too far fetched, sadly. But, in my opinion, I loved the animation in How To Train Your Dragon, especially Toothless and his cat-likeness And then there's Avatar and it's prettiness (But I hear the plot sucked but I was too captivated by the detailed animation xD)
Actually there's not much hype around my angel species, i won a contest with them on Valenth (i integrated the species into that world for the contest which was a fun and inspiring experiment) and was asked to work with someone on a similar fantasy world but that's all. ...Ok, not "that's all", that's quite a lot considering where else could i be with my art in a worse scenario.
Oh well i'm rather motivated towards computer game development/design/concept/everything than animation. But if it's an animation in a game then i'm in. lol
Really? That's kinda of saddening. Personally, they're at least in the top three of my favorite made-up species list (it's not an established list, persay, but IT'S THERE SOMEWHERE XD) and no I'm not just saying that to get you to like me ^.^ I think that the species is very original despite its origins, if you know what I mean? Like... a lot of people like to do winged things that look like angels and call it some weird bunch of letters aranged in a word? well, if anything, your art could take you far ^^ Like, since you wanna go into game development and design, etc., then you may be a very good character designer, especially with your character White Raven and how she creates those 'friends' (I guess you call them?)
Anyway, yeah xD I promise I'm not sucking up to you. It really seem like I am >.<
Thanks for that. Well i'm trying not to name anything in a fantasy language because i like when words have recognizable meaning, fantasy-realm or not. Though i saw some people saying that they don't like the name of my angel species, but they didn't explain, so it doesn't really matter.
I don't think you are sucking up or anything. But i'm not the best expert of social interaction so you might be. (lol, i kid i kid) It seemed to me just like a good conversation.
