Gah! How the hell did I miss this one? I've been so busy I haven't been able to roam DA until late so guess that's how I didn't see the posting for this guy.
Seriously ace design Adam, really, really cool vibe it has. I totally dig the angular feel and asymmetry you have going on here.
Apologies for falling off the radar but seeing as how you had been talking about doing your own FOIL, something in this territory would, not only fit, but strengthen the fact it's all you, you're take and style.
Very, very cool indeed Hope you're well and we'll have to catch up soon.
thanks for the comment! im in love with asymmetry actually and OF COURSE i havent forgotten about doing a foil for you. i did many commissions lately, i quit my job and became a freelancer. life was stressy the last months. whats up with you?
thanks once again! tips for you? it would be good to see some of your works so i can skip basic tips maybe
but er.... what do you want to do? just digital painting overall? concept art? designing robots? if its just the design process you might find it cool to check out ALCHEMY! its at www.al.chemy.org its a free sketching tool . it generates some cool shapes and you can take it further in photoshop then! its also helpful to work with volume instaed of lines. try painting freaky silhouettes with black. practice it every day with 10 quick ones. you will get better each day. start with 5 minutes each and try to speed up so you might create one in less than a minute later on. save them all use it as your own pool of designs and crazy shapes. try to take a silhouette you like and flesh it out in photoshop as well. i hope you got a tablet and photoshop at home?
O.O...wow..fortunately i haven get a tablet yet..photoshop even worse.. u dont sketch on papers?? well pardon me..coz i m still young.juz started college this year..n the thing i m interested is..to be able to draw alot of human bodies..or~like mecha bodies.. i m vry curious..escpecially.. when it comes to drawing the shape of the things u drew...i mean..do u draw their anatomy first?? uhm~i m kinda used to drawing those more to japanese style n wanted to try some new styles...so is it possible to draw something like u drew in the paper?? **if u can..do show me**..i m vry interested to know~
you gotta keep in mind. painting and drawing are 2 DIFFERENT things one is based on outlines the other on blocked in shapes with color. i do my stuff digitally. its all digital paintings you see here. if its human anatomy you wanna draw then just grab a sketchbook and a pencil and start drawing take it with you whereever you go and sketch the people you see in busses or in the metro. i bought myself a caligpraphy kind of ink brush and sketched on my way to work a bit i got some reuslts to show you but it is different then the process while painting images ah well take a look [link] [link]
you may just want to go to youtube as well and search for SPEEDPAINTING.you well get to see timlapsed processes of paintings done in photoshop
yea i do know about it.. but from my knowledge..i think...we can sketch it correctly 1st then we scan it onto our com n then start the digital painting...is it correct??or am i wrong?? coz...i feel that if i were to do it digitally..i gotta be darn pro at my anatomy n angles...coz b4 i start drawing.i draw the anatomy 1st..... so i m asking if u were to draw those stuff u show to me via the link above^^. do u draw their anatomy??or juz draw it in a flash??i like ur designs alot man!...its cool.. so u used the brush to draw?not by pencil??do u have some artworks of yours that is drawn by pencil??wanna check it out..
AND THANX!!THANX!! about ur tips..i m gonna catch up with wat u said.. oh ya!by the way..i m not shy to tell u that..i know nuts about colouring or painting.lol..i wanted to be good in pencilling 1st.any more tips??
of course you can scan in a lineart and color it on the pc. many do it like this. i dont need to draw in guidlines since robots can have all different proportions. there are no rules basically i just start and see where i end up i dont have any pencil sketches mate although i should do some these days im crazy about painting if i got the free time. maybe you should seek someone who does! there are plenty guys who draw characters all the time . of course with pencil and paper
i just do robot paintings
and you dont need any more tips. first you need to get a good feel for the drawing itself. practice drawing realistic human heads and such! this is the best you can do
