Pixel Lovely

Hey everyone,

I found something better than posemaniacs for gesture drawing practice; it is a photo based reference site.  Check it out!

So for that photo of the class I ended up trying different techniques to draw with, stippling looks kinda cool but takes so so so so long to do, so I have not had a chance to even start the other ones yet. Ill try and finish the drawing sometime this weekend. at the moment these are just the individual bits before I stick em together. though the one of josh just looks terrible. I am sorry Josh.

Chuck Close - Work in Progress - Update #6: Finished?

Thought I'd start posting the portrait in stages. Sorry for the poor quality photo, I'll make sure the next one is taken in natural light. Hopefully it's overcast tomorrow.

Working my way down I'm dreading the beard...

The beard is proving to be a lot more time consuming than anticipated. Experimenting with a few different ideas on how to expedite it, the overall effect seems to work when viewing from a distance. Might do the top of the head first and come back to the beard so I don't lose my mind.

Although I'm quite happy with the skin tones and texture, now that I've done the top, I can no longer avoid doing the beard...also starting to stress about the time. I have invested way too much time into this one drawing to the detriment of the others.

On the plus side, this is shaping up to be my finest work using pencil to date.

Getting there, though I'm worried the beard is starting to look more like fur than hair. Strands too short maybe? I dunno.

I think it's as good as I can get it without obsessing...too much.

P.S. Aaarrrghh! Fkn Paper fold! (top right corner...made me rage!)

Hey everyone, I mentioned how terrible the lights were in the MED104 room during the src meeting and they said they would check it out and see if we can get slightly better ones. could be good news.

GDS204 Character Design

This is what i have done for my GDS204 assessment where I'm required to design a character for a preexisting game. The heads were drawn using Andrew Loomis's method.
