A few weeks back I did something interesting with the digital painting class I teach. I had a model come in and we did some live digital painting from the model. I figured it was a nice relaxing class to have just before spring break.
The model was great, the students did a great job, and I think they really enjoyed it.
Finally got a chance to upload the scanned in version of my elf girl drawing. That's it for now, short post this time.
Sadly, I don't have access to a good scanner right now so I can not really show most of what I have been doing. I did however decide to take a photo of my latest sketch, this way I can at least show everyone a small piece of what I have been up to.
I used a friend of mine, Jen, as the model. Instead of just doing a straight up portrait I decided to make her an Elven type creature. Yay Elves, fun times. Other than that the image is self explanatory. I will upload a better quality image once I get to a good scanner.
Also, I know I said I wouldn't do this again but I made another portfolio site. This one is at Imagine Fx's site. Same deal as always this link will be added to the top of my blog in case you want to see.
That would be all for tonight, but I shall have more sketchbook goodness soon.
As of late I have been hitting the books hard. I decided to do a bit of figure studying as well as some exploration into new digital techniques. So Picked up some interesting digital books. One by Don Seegmiller, The DIGITAL PAINTING BIBLE, and one compilation of workshops released by ImagineFX. I have only begun to scratch the surface, but so far they have been quite helpful.
I also got some figure books. Good old Bridgeman and one by Robert Barrett.
As you can see I also got a fun new toy. I got an Intuos 4 tablet. This tablet is a thing of beauty. A lot better then my old Graphire 3. I've been experimenting with some new brushes and techniques in Painter, which has been quite fun.
Since I am spending time trying to learn new things, some of the stuff I have done I don't believe is worthy yet to show everyone out there in the webbernet. But as soon as I get comfortable with some of these new techniques expect bigger and better things.
Also in the last image you can see my baby and my tablet. The image I have for my wallpaper is a piece by Stanley Lau, the wallpaper itself is thanks to ImagineFX.
That's it for now but have faith in a bright future.
