Without wanting to get into a “woe is me” diatribe I guess I was frustrated last night by not being able to settle on or execute an idea. I initially wanted to do a white drawing on black to keep in with the Sin City aesthetic and my style (for it is just my style) really doesn’t lend itself well to that. Now I could have taken my time and refined my lines and figured out exactly where the shadows and highlights needed to fall once I’d gotten the composition down but I just couldn’t.
I haven’t so much nailed a style as become trapped by it. I can draw other ways but they require a lot more planning or forethought and I now very quickly default to a line heavy, sketchy style.
Gah. It’s all moot anyway because more drawing and more practice would obviously get me over this hump, but you know it’s like when you’ve developed a bad habbit riding the bike or something. Even though they are bad habbits you become reliant on them and they are hard to break.Posted 4 months ago
Just thought I’d give it a go, no done anything like that since college years ago, use it all the time though for other things, I don’t get paid to be an illustrator, my job’s much more mundane!
You know one thing that’s always really annoyed me about photoshop, why isn’t there a keyboard shortcut to rotate a brush, live, I know you can do it in the panel, but that’s clunky. Or is there and I’ve just missed it? Would come in handy if I decide to add the fine detail to that image. infact I’ll need to see if i can set a custom short cut, it’s mibbe in there.
Still much prefer seeing manual artwork though. But aye, you can take this a surrender on the photoshop point! 😉
one and only from me though, ink all the way, getting an addiction to drawing i think.Posted 4 months ago
Thanks for positive comments folks. Have been working this last 2.5 years with pigment, brush knives and last year began sketching ideas at night again with the iPad. It will be inked when I’ve mixed a big batch. It feels like it has to be very big!
Keep on drawing – agree this is an energising and creative thread ❗Posted 4 months ago
I’ll no post the source this time, see if anyone can guess who it is.
I’d probably get a kicking round these parts for this kinda sacrilege!
(I really believe in this having to do a couple of hundred of portraits before I get any good, this is number 3, 😆 )
No 13. the big plook on the end of his nose if very dissapointing, that was ment to be light, picked up the wrong pen!Spoiler:
hmm, thought that worked on here.Posted 4 months ago
