Rotohail's "Reclusive" SketchBook

Hi again, 

You're getting a lot of advice and I don't feel as qualified to critique what your posting—but I gotta say I really love the characters/scenes you're creating.
 
Are you familiar with Marc Brunet?

His stuff reminds me a little of what you're doing with your fantasy work especially the winged girlie above.  Brunet uploaded some very cool "speed-paint" video to YouTube if you haven't seen them already.

Anyway—keep up the good work!

Yup, you made the chest more solid. However, smaller breasts are generally set higher on the torso.
I agree that you could use more darks on the dragon fight scene, however I'm not sure what the light sources are apart from the magical lightning. Also, on the flying girl you could use the atmosphere's scattered blue light in the shadows of the white pieces of the suit and accessories to make it feel high up. Ha wait, upon closer look, the whites are more like light orange, so I'm not sure if the blue would show in reality.

I think Schmidt’s alla prima has the answers that’s on my growing study to do list sorry I can’t help more. I really love the swoosh thing you do with the smoke effects it has a nice comic effect that’s really nice.
I think I glazed over that book many years ago. I think technically my light side would be desaturated, maybe I could emphasize more the saturation over my shadows or desaturate the lights more. I'll try to check back on that book, I'm currently with Scott's How to Render so maybe I find some help in it. Thanks anyhow! Oh hey! Good to know! I personally love special effects and I need to get much better at them, I've seen some really cool, I want one day to be able to pull them off as awesome as those I'm thinking about.

Hey! Well I personally think anyone can leave feedback, like don't feel the need to just focus on technical bits, you can also comment on design, or how you feel about something if done differently, or if I could add, or take away, or change something to improve the message, as a viewer! That matters!

I've seen a few things over time from him! But I don't know much no. Ha! Really? Well maybe that's a good thing! I personally would like to pursue what Alex Flores does ha, but looks lightyears away. I also don't know as of late if I'm all that invested in painting, I'm feeling more and more like I'm driving myself into comic-book art. Not sure. I haven't seen the video but feel free to link it! I'll check it out!

Let's do so!

Yeah someone else keeps pointing that out to me and I keep forgetting, I guess studying breast is on the menu! Oh, I'm gonna enjoy this one! Ha. Setting yourself up for failure so you have to study something you enjoy, smart... so smart *rubs hands together*. Ha, jokes.

Well I'm not the best on color at the mo but I think if you use slightly saturated orange for the lights, using desaturated tone (or neutral gray) will look blueish by contrast, using slightly bluish hue should work fine too? I dunno, I honestly didn't think too much about where was she on there! So I didn't pay attention, would look good I think like you put it so taking notes, I'll try on some other!


Leaving a WIP page, I was coloring rather slowly, I've not been very fruitful this past days. I've another page sketched out so hopefully I can have both of them done in a few days. I also have been trying to do a bit more photo-studies back again. For a while at least.

Where!? Hurry! Go say something to her! She might be the one...
Ha. jokes!

Updating with colors, hmm, I should work more on the one on the right.  I may do so but I want to move onto another page with more environments/props, which I have long overdue.

You cracked me up with the "excuse for studying" trick XD
You're right, gray or a desaturated warm color will look blue on a warm context (veins, shadows) but it didn't read blue to me in this case and I wrongly inferred the suit was white. True white, on the other hand, will really have blue shadows in the atmosphere because the scattered blue light will just add up and not fight for hue.
Speaking of colors, your color studies read very real to me, with just the right amount of brushwork.
The skeleton hockey player is just wonderfully cute!
The fantasy illustration - if you plan on continuing it - could use some more color and lighting work to make it feel more tangible. The clothing design is very imaginative, in particular the belt and rope.

Hey, I really like your drawings. Your lines are nice and confident and feel like you're having fun.

I was looking at your recent illustration and maybe i'm overstepping here but I thought I'd try painting over it just to try and define your lightsources a bit more clearly. Maybe I got a little carried away with it. All I really did was follow through on the light sources you already showed in your initial drawing and tried to make sure the forms were being lit appropriately. Maybe you can get something out of it.
