Texture painting + normal editing is the best way to get the look I want but I'm too scared to learn how to do it properly. I'm using this mesh to practice that stuff and I already love the results :)

I did that meme challenge where you copy all drawings from Bridgeman's Constructive Anatomy book in a day, it's really exhausting x.x
Not dead yet just haven't been updating this place

I used to do that so much starting out lol; copy his drawings over and over... I guess a good deal of it embedded in my psyche, but a lot of those drawings i wasnt sure what they were even trying to show. I mean now i do, but ultimately i was just spinning my wheels copying some of them.

Anyways, i love shit like this... like even if its futile for improving, i love it just goin balls deep and pounding out the drawings, something about the mentallity pleases me

I painted a lot of things and did some 3D it the long period I didn't update this sketchbook, it's up on my instagram coinhero_art here's some stuff I find interesting.

first sketch I made after the big Bridgeman study marathon, I really like it for whatever reason.

Sixmorevodka study because goddamn they made some good art for legends of runetera

also made this water color. It sucks mega dick but I really like it just because it's not trees and rocks and little anime girls like everything else I paint.

real fucking wide

painted this yesterday based on a sketch I made like 2 weeks ago. Still need to make some small changes but this is pretty much finished. I want to transition in to painting more character focused images, it's the only way I'll learn how to draw people.

[Image: day_103_sleeping_Alucard.jpg]

I started working on this image today. It's Alucard from Symphony of the Night, I've been playing the game for the first time the last 2 days and this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgPH7vOWXiw moment really stuck with me. 
It's amazing and it comes out of nowhere idk makes me feel feels.
I made a 3D base because I couldn't get the background to look the way I wanted and didn't want to spend an eternity making guide lines.[url=https://i.imgur.com/c21KwSk.jpg][/url]

it's going to be a lot of work and I'm not too sure what I'm doing this image is really outside of my comfort zone

Great work dude.

The Alucard drawing is looking good, I like your use of a 3D base to get the background perspective correct.

Keep going!

@Artloader Thanks! Recently I've gotten fast enough that it's starting to make sense using 3D for my images and it's a real life saver sometimes :D

@darktiste I used this image I made as a reference 

[Image: y64TFgU.jpg]  
and just sort of traced over it in 3D till I got the basic shapes down. Mostly just winging it

Final results

I haven't been looking at mtg art recently I kind of stopped liking it idk why. I'm mostly inspired by Wenjun Lin, Alexis Rives, Yun Ling and a couple of others

id try to add more of an expression on the face, or make the gesture more clear as to what hes doing.. I like the bookcases a lot, drawing that used to intimidate me, but i see the logic in it now :). I find in drawing facial expressions, i draw a super simple expression like a stick man, then try to morph the face into that simple expression. With yours, his eyes appear closed, but i cant tell what emotional state hes in. His arms in a crossed pose, maybe hes thinking, but i cant see it in his face.

Also, just like with the floating boy, dont be afraid to find a cool value pattern with that dappled light idk if thats the word, it really can add to a composition. The fairy is hard to read because of the chairs value behind her being so similar in color and value, sometimes ppl make a fairy very bright so its clear from far away what it is. Of course his collar is dark and can serve as a point of contrast.

This is where it's at right now. The thing is I'm trying to recreate a scene from the game or rather an easter egg

if you sit here for long enough he falls asleep and the fairy takes a sit on his back I think. I can't really figure out how to paint that tho I played around with lowering his head a bit but it looks like hes dead not asleep then :D I don't think I can get across the idea with just the expression alone because I'm not good enough for that so maybe changing the fairy's pose so that shes laying on his collar would be a good context clue. If shes in a more natural sleeping pose maybe that would be enough idk. I'll probably change her size and colors a bit but I still haven't thought much about that yet.

I stopped working on this because I've spent over a week already and it's too boring and hard to keep going

I'm learning clip studio paint atm and trying to paint stuff I'm not comfortable with. I've never done an urban setting before because I don't know how to paint buildings, it's just too complicated.
