Digital Doodles

Post by Project J on Sun 19 Aug 2012 - 7:07

OC, Christine/Amita. It's not finished because damnit the more I look at it the crappier it feels.

It's also not my usual art style. Just experimenting around because I worship Yoji Shinkawa like a little bitch.
Pencils on paper base, scanned into Photoshop 6.0, inked/colored by Wacom Intuos2 XL (18" x 12"). 8 hours of faffing about on 10 layers because I'm inefficient like that.



Critique at will. I hate the way that clothing came out, it's ridiculously baggy-looking. Amita (left) was coming out more nicely though, but oh well that's motivation for another attempt later on I guess.

Wow mate, that is damn awesome work. You got a gallery or something? Loving the watercolour-esque effect.

As to the bagginess issue, sharper folds and cleaner lines perhaps? Particularly if you're doing suiting.

Thanks for the kudos, but I'm far from being fantastic. :x Also, thanks for the tips. I really need to do more referencing; it shows when I'm incapable of properly drawing folds and shading shadows. D:

I have a deviantart, although I don't update it all that frequently. The greater majority of my stuff is traditional pencil-on-paper + touchups on Photoshop (almost all of which is done by mouse).

The graphics tablet I bought about 6 months ago has been a godsend.

I uh don't know what dA Muro is.

You'll have to forgive me, I work within an internet bubble and don't actually surf dA on a regular basis anymore (unless it's like, for palettes or brushes or tutorials. =P)

ed: I'm certainly up for trying new things though.
Whenever I can find time alongside dealing with university work. ;-;

WIP:



This is kinda my regular style. No spending hours and hours on it, I'm afraid.
In fact, I dunno if I want to finish it. As you might notice if you look closely enough, there's a few disparities between the inking and the original sketch. =P

I don't think I've had a digital work where there haven't been disparities between it and the original sketch. Razz

Looking good mate... though I can relate to the "meh" feeling about something when you're halfway through. My HDD is full of them.

Well goodness, here's something I finished for once.



I'm a bit iffy on the leg perspective, but apart from that I'm a bit satisfied with the way it came out. Might even touch it up on Photoshop with digital inks.

Pacers on paper only, scanned into PS6.0.

Ah, yes.

I forgot to link that post to this post! I think it would be a better method than embedding an [img], to reduce clutter in a bio thread.

Anyways. I felt really strongly about this piece this time around, which explains why I finished it. It feels really barebones, though.
