Anyone in here like to draw/paint/sculpt? Post your work!

I've just started drawing 1 in college and here's a few of my recent works. Monk's unfinished though, still have to blend value and make additions (face) and fix feet/hand.

It's a bit intimidating to share my stuff with such talented people. But what the hell, right?

@uninspiredcup: very nice! Are those first few all from imagination? The egg is almost indistinguishable, that's crazy talent. I wish I could draw from mind, but all my drawings look like 5th grader doodles unless I'm observing something. Kind of depressing as I feel I don't really understand the underlying principles of drawing and am just copying.

@DEVILinIRON: cool stuff! The second reminds me a bit of Van Gogh, tbh.

Same type of feeling.

@MirkoS77: Your line work and and values are alot better than mine when I started, hell, my values are crap compared to yours. The egg, the computer softens it all up for you makes it a lot easier, your paper stuff requires far more skill.

If you wanna do imagination stuff, or just good shit in general always point to Burne Hogarth or Andrew Loomis.

Also really great book, perspective was always a pain in the ass but this acted as a good starting point along with youtube, one of the most ridiculous problems I had was getting a perfect square cube which no book seemed to explain.

Wow great art folks!

How did you all get your start? I'm 35 now and I sometimes think it has passed me by, but drawing is something I've always wanted to get in to.

Did you take classes? Casually or seriously? Or just self-taught and Youtube taught haha.

One of my dream jobs is a concept artist for video games, movies, etc.. I've always loved the conceptual drawings that precede actual development of a product.

Thanks for posting those. You always think of art as well....art, you know, something that just stems from pure creativity (and it generally is), but there's also a lot of technique and dare I say science haha.

When you break it down like that, it is far less intimidating.

I remember watching a video about sketching, and they said just start with a circle. Draw it with a single line, then draw it with a bunch of short lines (sketching), and the sketch will look more like a circle than the single continuous line, and damn they were totally right. Then you shade it a bit, and suddenly the circle is a sphere.

Really cool stuff.

@uninspiredcup:I'll be giving those vids a watch and will definitely look that guy up. Thanks for the book recommendation also, perspective is an absolute motherf***er and anything helps. Do you do art for a living by chance? Some of your work makes me suspect. And how much of that is from your head?

Finished the Monk today, but don't know which I prefer honestly. I think there's something to be said for more explicit stylistic hatching/cross hatching as much as carefully blended values and well defined lines. Plus adding this value only by pencil is incredibly time consuming as it requires numerous layering, blending, and erasing all equally. Here's the final:

@robbie23: beautiful shot, good eye! Any others?

I don't draw anymore. These are from when I was a kid, when I thought it would be a lifelong passion. I find it very boring now.

@MirkoS77: Me? Na just a hobby, nice monk pic.

If I can make a suggestion? Might be a good idea to make the lights lighter and the darks darker. If check out some of Andrew Loomis' drawings he deliberately simplified the values exaggerating both ends of the spectrum to give his work more kick.

In regards to reference, yea sometimes if it's needed. Still can't draw hands worth shit and have problems drawing woman's breasts (most likely from a lack of seeing them).

Anyone know what song inspired the above picture?

These are the last two drawings I put any real time into, and that was a couple years ago. I need to make time to do this again.

@ezekiel43: Nice honu (turtle), and the second looks like Leon (Jean Reno). Supposed to be?

@uninspiredcup: was just talking to my sister about it (she's a high school art teacher) and she gave me that exact same advice. Going to do so tomorrow, though I hate messing with what I'm already pretty happy with. The more value's added, the harder it is to remove when a mistake's made, especially when it's so dark.

@judaspete: cool stuff, what's the medium?

Yeah. My 9th or 10th grade teacher wanted me to take portraits of friends and family, but I've never felt that intimate with any of them and didn't want to ask, so I just drew a celebrity I thought she just wouldn't know.

Fair enough. Guess you could as a final touch use something like chalk or some such on the highlights and lean more heavily on the darks with a heavier pencil grade.

@uninspiredcup:yea, I tried. Not sure I like it better but it does present more contrast.

@TheFlush: cool drawing. I like the beard and hair highlights especially. I'll have to give the iPad a shot for sketching.

@MirkoS77: Yea, that does look more immediate to the eye. Probably could go abit further with it if you wanted, but it's your picture, if you're happy with it all that matters.

Was looking over the art stuff on Steam and found a bunch of PS shit done a few years back messin about.

Humble Bundle has a really good deal ATM where they are selling hundreds of dollars of Corel software for $25.

Haven't really used Corel myself but it seems pretty good.

@uninspiredcup: Nice! Joker? Thanks for the heads up on the software, will check it out. Do you use a drawing tablet or mouse? I have one but it's in storage somewhere, I'll have to dig it up to try with Corel. Some more I've been doing.

Eye (forgot the lashes):

Trying to learn basic layout of hair before more detail is added:

Hands are a nightmare for me and this came out somewhat okay, mostly because the ends aren't visible. Still, right wrist is way too thick and left isn't logical with the way the fingers curl, but it was a 30 min attempt.

Are you on Deviant by chance? If not you should create an account. I'd love to see all of your work.

@MirkoS77: Yes, they are a nightmare. But you've done a good job, nothing distorted, nice consistent hatching too.

And ye, cheapo tablet.

Def recommend that deal if you're doing an art course, not just painter, whole host of creative programs and addons.

Wow these are great, I never knew we had such awesome artists in the community. Thanks for sharing these.

I recently got a cintiq after my old tablet gave up the ghost, so I can get back into doing some stuff.

Here's one of my own, that I did earlier this year with my old tablet.

@zanelli: Nice work. What program do you use?

Really cool feature in Painter.

I know you can basically just make your own perspective grids in stuff like photoshop pretty easily, but this automatically aligns your pen to the perspective grid.

@uninspiredcup: That one was mainly done in GIMP, with some bits in Krita and Paint Tool Sai.

I actually picked up the Humble Bundle with Painter 2019 and PSP in it last week. I also picked up Clip Studio a few weeks ago, while that had a really good discount. So I am gonna give those a go.
