Great sketchbook entrance

RE: Nyra's Sketchbook - JonHop - 08-23-2012

Great start! That caterpillar piece is really nice, I think it could be a really great piece if you pushed it to a more polished state. I think pushing your values more too include the full range and really working on the shadow and light could bring it closer to a finished illustration.

Keep working hard and posting!

RE: Nyra's Sketchbook - Nyra - 08-24-2012

Thank you James!
@JonHop: Thanks and I think you're right I really should get back and work some more on it :).

So here's a skull study from life. I also recorded the process and made a video

Welcome to the forums Nyra. Your work is looking good so far, a nice variety of studies and personal work. Top one with the lobster head dress is my favorite so far; a really good idea. Keep it up.

RE: Nyra's Sketchbook - Nyra - 08-25-2012

Thanks Dennis!
So, the head is finished for the moment. I could render so much more and keep working on it but I am sick of it right now so I keep him like that.
Also did some quick sketches.

So I played too much GW2 lately but I try to get back and draw some more.
I reworked the contrast color and added some details to the worm.

Good studies.
The skull is impressive!

RE: Nyra's Sketchbook - Nyra - 09-16-2012

Thank you Warre!

So here's a little update of the girl.
Time to work some more on her face, her body and the lighting.

RE: Nyra's Sketchbook - Fincks - 09-20-2012

I like the concept of your last work.
The wings have too much of a 2D look, it doesn't fit with the rest of the painting.

RE: Nyra's Sketchbook - Warre - 09-20-2012

great studies, the skull i nicely done.
I also like the colors you use.

RE: Nyra's Sketchbook - Nyra - 09-22-2012

Thank you Fincks and Warre! You're right about the wings and I didn't even see it. I tried to improve them but I don't really know if it's better right now.

So played a bit around, improved the face a lot in my opinion and tried out a new form of the wings, but I don't really know if I keep them like that or change them back to the original one.
What do you think?

RE: Nyra's Sketchbook - Nyra - 10-05-2012
