I was hearing Neil Gaiman's podcasts/interviews and forgot not to use the color picker until it was to late :( , really need to let go of this stupid habit and learn some value/color. ( if u can tell me a good place to learn color/value from , that would be most valuable to me ).
Im also having trouble achieving likeness , with the first one there wasnt much effort but with the Emma Watson one i tried hard but im still not feeling it :S (once again give me advice plz u mighty gods of art and stuff)
ty for stopping by and i wish u all a merry Christmas! or what ever u celebrate :)
p.s. just noticed a small mistake , i didnt take 1 hour to do Emma , it took me almost 2 hours

Don't worry about likeness too soon. Unless you're planning on becoming a portrait artist by trade, there's no practical benefit to learning that. But even then, focus on the structure of the head and getting the proportions right and that will be enough. I used to do portraits of famous/recognizable people too, but then i realized I was focusing too much on getting the likeness while missing sight of the importance of the structure, which ultimately hampered the development of my imaginative work. And really the accuracy of the likeness depends almost entirely on the accuracy of the structure, so much that a few millimeters will throw it off.

As for colours and values, I would recommend some gnomon DVDs

Colour:
1. Colour Theory: The mechanics of colour by Richard Keyes (as title suggests it covers colour theory in depth)
2. Practical Light and Colour by Jeremy Vickery (Covers application of colour theory and how to think about saturation and hue shifting etc)

Value:
Matte surface shading by scott robertson (Discusses rules to use values from imagination and how to render geo forms accurately)
OR
How to Render by scott robertson (book with lots of info on rendering and values, similar to matte surface shading dvd)


But none of that matters if you don't apply the info yourself. Study life and photographs armed with the knowledge from the theory videos, and try to avoid photography that's heavily manipulated or even films, since they change the colours a lot in those as well, if you want to understand natural lighting better. Once you have a good basis in reality, then its ok to use film photos as colour studies to expand your colour palette knowledge

Ah! That Interstellar piece isn't bad at all :D

I don't really have any C&C for ya (Patrick nailed some great advice), just keep doing what you love - applying studies to what you want to, etc.

Looking forward to more now that your exams are done with!

I've come to realise how posting in my daggers sketchbook kept me accountable... I'm going to try to lean into that again and see how I go.
It's about time I train to get a stronger grip on the fundamentals

Thanks smrr ill sure do :)
Today i did my first still life , what i learned :
1- its harder then i thought
2- forcing myself to find the colors and understanding the lighting instead of color picking from a photo ref is much harder and time consuming ,but i think that never color picking again in my life is the right way to go because of what i learn from it
3- its very time consuming for someone who has been avoiding this for so long ( it ended up taking me from 2 to 3 hours to do it )
4- its actually fun

C&C are more then welcome
Ill make sure much more of this will keep coming up .
LETS MAKE SOME ART GAINS !
P.S. the apple was tasty
(enjoy the groove )

Yo dude, thanks for the comment. Studies looking nice, vehicle designs are really creative. Plus the perspective looks pretty spot on.
