Gliger's Sketchbook
Thanks for posting, storytelling in general, comics, animation, visdev.

I like thumbnailing in pencil but taking photos of it sucks, realising some useful stuff about composition that I didn't realise a lot of my favorite artists were doing, like the 50%+ rule, repeating values in different contexts to unify the image...

I got the broad rhythms more or less down, now it's about bringing all of them to a more finished looking state, as if they were finished images but just in thumbnail form. Time to start sharpening a second pencil.

back to heavypaint, hoping to start paiting outside, at least during the night

[Image: 7nX4qnt.png]

I guess it's because the land is hotter so it takes more height before the water cools down enough to form droplets

[Image: BXYbEqT.png]

[Image: NK0lD0U.jpg]

something I'm loving about the heavypaint app is the rectangle tool, it lets you make a decision on the quality and size of the rectangle while you look at everything else, you scout hte rest of the image, and resize the rectangle without having to look at it, it's such a good way to compose

[Image: MGnDrh3.png]

going to sleep, more tomorrow

[Image: RjyD1RC.png]

[Image: gsfbnn0.png]

it seems a lot of clouds tend to be fuzzier at the bottom (althought flatter too), I guess it makes sense since the droplets condensate and bind together as you go higher (colder), so they'd be more concentrated there.

aaand more shape clusters

[Image: 2XN0l7G.jpg]

focusing less and less on composition being about guiding the eye, and more and more on composition and arrangement exsisting to help you experience the whole image at once, to make you confident of everything that is there, knowing that that little blurry mark in the background is a chair even without looking at it. Getting the whole impression at a glance; I'm shit at it rn, but improving.

Morning, not done with the illustration, also will probably grab old illustrations and rework them to see what I've learned and how far I can push them. Also happy that I'm at a point where I can comfortably reference more complicated anatomy from paintings without being confused by the artists' depiction, having a lot of fun looking at steve huston's stuff being able to tell what's stylized and how.

[Image: T4Le5eu.jpg]

human clusters, it's beautiful how many shapes and rhythms you can get from the shadows alone if you play around. I like how graphic some of these dark shapes look, almost like they are floating in between you and the figure like matisse's reds, could probably turn it into a cool style.

interesting, back in the day lots of buildings couldn't be too thick, or whoever lived in the middle wouldn't get any sunlight, so you get this court or some division in the middle, not making blocks too thick is hugely important for having natural light, at least with opaque roofs

was playing around with this frame from dr caligari and realised this type of make up, with the dark lower eyelids and nose, does kinda simulate lighting from below, although in the original frame's case they used waxy paint so the highlight on the lower eyelids kills that specific feel

do fanart of sculptures you like, you get the planes for free

[Image: 6JyAkV9.jpg]

looks disgusting, but learning to render, make bouncelights warmer and warmer (as long as the albedo rbg values are right), past terminator you'll get really warm skin for a bit (scattered light from the direct source), but halftones will also get warmer, in hearthstone type illustration they LOOOVE 1 direct light, 1 fill light, and then one focal light with super strong falloff.

Interesting film composition studies Gliger, you aiming to make a film?

I'm looking into film compositions as well but to see how they translate to comicbook panels.

[Image: PukDvjX.jpg]

terrible painting but I wanted to check on some principles, every form has a gradient, every form has a hard edge and a soft edge, the simplest gradient, if you give it a hard edge, will show form (you can have more than 1 hard edge, just show contrast between edges on the turning form). Also edge quality is relative.

[Image: G7nBNtq.png]

value, saturation, temperature, all these things show form and space

[Image: rOpiba7.png]

big trash but I realised some stuff about composition, contrast gives direction, contrast frames, play by starting with 1 shape, then repeating it and changing it, adding gradients at an offset, offsetting them, adding textures, erasing them at an offset, etc. etc. easiest way to learn balance is to start with one shape, then moving it around to see how it changes the character of the image, change value, temperature, texture, angle, shape, edges etc. gradients aren't just gradients, they are shapes.

[Image: 0pFbsg1.jpg]

don't make 2 things the same, repetition frames, offset gives direction.

[Image: iCVqyMz.jpg]

every shape has a gradient(variation), texture variation, edge variation, every gradient has a gradient, every value has value variation, that variation frames, it pulls you to one side or the other.

Deep stuff dude.

Is that the nodes feature in Blender? Looks really complicated - I never really got my head around that.

You've come up with some fascinating patterns though.

Good luck and keep going!

hey yeah it's blender, it's not too complicated it's just a couple math nodes, just gotta know that blender considers black 0 and white 1, so if you multiply by less than 1 you'll always get darker, if you add anything within 0 and 1 it'll get lighter etc. it makes sense once you try it out for a bit, check out blender sushi's nodding live series on youtube

gotta get used to a 2 color system, makes practicing tight lines easier

blend modes work the same as math nodes in blender, good knowledge, dissolve mode is great for adding texture by lowering opacity

tons of problems, will fix though, gotta make tighter shapes, fix values

note for myself, don't design and render at the same time, every change complicates too many things

without any real changes in the rendering, just with better drawing, the results are much better. Gotta improve the painting anyways.

this is gonna be great for shoe sole design

also CubeSurfer is nuts

need better shapes, figuring values out

lots of shapes don't flow well, too even

important note, idk how I've forgotten all this time, the specular and the diffused highlight are different colors, for white skin you might wanna make the diffuse slightly orange-yellow-ish, and the specular the color of the light, this also makes it easier to identify which is the spec and which one dif in your reference.

also I realised the point behind the rule of thirds, it's literally just about automatically creating volumes that are all different, that gives direction to the different parts of the image, doesn't work (as well) when the height and width of the image are the same, it has nothing to do with the center of the image being a bad place to put your focal point. it's all just about creating uneven shapes so they go somewhere, pull in some direction, echo in some way, instead of being self contained or even and repetitious. All of this is heightened by the different elements of each shape: gradient, texture, value, temperature etc.

lots of shape and clarity problems both water shapes are the same volume, also gotta remember to flip image upside down the rotate 45º, best way to feel the shapes.

also noticed the fucking swastika on the ground jesus

Love the random 3D models dude. I always found it a challenge to put neatly cut seams in like you have there.
