Portfolio work + sketches.

The first one is the view out my bedroom window, second one is a self-portrait, third is a portrait of Day[9] from www.day9.tv (SC2 caster).

Bleh. I need to do backgrounds.
- Shadows are too warm (compared to the base colour) and too light. Ha

Bulbasaur sketches, trying to figure out how it works. Might do a speedpaint later today if I can.

Creature design-y stuff. Got inspired to do this after watching this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yKxY0KKrak from FZD.
Man I need a bigger visual library.

Maybe I’ll finally finish a painting for once.
Reference in picture obviously.

I need to find something smaller and more interesting and quicker to paint because fffff big projects bore me really easily. Maybe because I have no idea what I’m doing and feel like it’ll look horrid in the end, I dunno.

I went flat colours -> lines -> render for this one, it worked out alright. Kept the proportions pretty well I think.
Random observation: if I do lines first, the bigger things [torso/arms/legs] tend to be out of proportion, but if I go flat colours and no lines the smaller things tend to be out of proportion. Not sure why. This seems to be a good compromise though.

Dat dragon.
I don’t really wanna keep going on this because I… don’t like working on it. The initial sketch was far too ambiguous (maybe except for the building); I watch a tonne of speedpaints on youtube and such and those guys work from super rough sketches, but I keep forgetting that they are (usually) professionals, while I literally started painting digitally in January. So. Yeah.
Anyway because this part of Improvement Hell has been holding me up for too long I’m still gonna count it.
12. Look out a window. Draw what you see. Bonus points for adding something interesting.
