Various Men, and a Dragon

By in digital, heads, men, paintings, sketches

One of my big problems with digital was that the line was sort of more wiggly, and things would get away from me. I’m feeling more in control of it now, however, and it’s almost like drawing on paper for me, now. More work, however. Not as relaxing staring into the screen, and thinking about […]

Wonders of Technology

By in Blender 3D, heads

Spent most of the day building this elaborate portrait head in Blender 3D. You know, people are the hardest things to do in 3D. But I didn’t have time to paint him, so I made him into a Roman Bust. Then I put that silly hat on him. I’m very happy, because this sort of […]

Colourful Background People

By in digital, heads, sketches

I’ve always liked the “cloud brush” in Photoshop. Again, I feel the purely digital people are getting better with practice. I can also scan in some pencil drawings from the book, and colour those, as well!

Sketchbook People

By in heads, pencil, Portraits, sketches

  People in the real world fly by, and it’s hard to catch them. So one uses imagination, and skills gained by practice to capture them. Then there’s drawing from a photograph, which is basically analyzing shapes, and not that creative for me. Still, it produces a convincing result, and I learn something in the […]

Digital Dame

By in digital, heads, women

Digital painting, on the bigger computer again. Trying to do what’s called “glazing,” using my “natural brushes.”

This is sort of a test, in that I’m trying to post something via photos I took with the iPad. Sadly, there are a few things I haven’t figured out, but this is good enough for the time being.

Pencil Portraits

By in heads, pencil, Portraits, sketches

I’m actually not fond of drawing from photos, because to me it feels too limiting. However, it’s a good way to improve the practice, and see some new aspects of anatomy, rather than simply drawing things which have worked for me before. Here, I’ve been looking at heads as shapes in space, made up of […]
