RE: get down on it - mindwrack - 02-12-2013

character sketches, once i decided to go for the octopus i was torn between going for a feudal japan design with elements from the fisherman's wife tale or roman design with elements of the god neptune, went roman in the end

RE: BRAVE LIKE A BEAR - Danar - 04-09-2013

good work man, i like your last 2 environments ! keep at it man:D!

RE: BRAVE LIKE A BEAR - Zesiul - 04-09-2013

Amzing studies! Color, value, shape, anatomy. You've just hit it out of the park. If I may add my two cents; I think a little bit of brush control and work with material may help push some of those concepts to the next level!

For instance, the materials on your Bloodsport 14 entry, the armor felt like it was perhaps not the right metal you may have wanted it to be throughout the concepts. If you take some time to look into how each item reflects and refracts light then I think you could use that knowledge to push these ideas even further!

Good luck! And fantastic portrait studies!

RE: BRAVE LIKE A BEAR - mindwrack - 04-10-2013

thanks guys! and zesiul you're right, was struggling with that on bs 14, it was a bit of an eye opener! i might try some studies with limited brush strokes and ill definitely start applying studies more
this week is going to be renaissance week, was going to be for bloodsports 15 but i'm going back to uni next week so won't be able to finish it, another velazquez study today; las meninas.
was taking a lot of time so not completely finished but i got the important bits down
