I’ve got some things up on eBay again! This time it’s Catwoman, Scarlet Witch and Starfire.
A majestic fuck-ton of wolf references (per request).
[Note that in the bottom image, a few of the sketches are not anatomically accurate; it’s more of a movement/action reference. Plus, a few of the images are a little humourous, but it is a very workable reference, whether you’re going for realistic or cartoon.]
A workable fuck-ton of male archery references (per request).
[Please note that the top two images of the white statues are for weaker bows; typically, the bow will have a stronger pull weight. The front arm would be fully extended and straight, and the hand gripping the arrow would not be pinching the arrow itself.]
Little nugget of advice that really changed the way I approached painting. When I started blending like this it was a real turning point for my art quality.
Forgot to add that lighting conditions and other variables in a piece make the hardness you want to choose somewhat variable. Drawing things like skin is more of a hardness range than it is a hard rule.
Eheh…get it? Hard rule? (aaaaaaaaaand i’m done).
Haa thanks, I can’t even put into words how unappealing the overuse of a soft brush is when rendering. There have even been otherwise expertly painted images that were (in my opinion) ruined by that overly soft ‘airbrush’-y look that soft edged brushes give off.
I mean, I just really hate soft edged brush in most cases. It’s definitely the fact that you can’t read any real confidence in the brush strokes of a soft edged brush. It makes it really difficult to nail down any solid shapes or forms in your painting. Weak vagueness both in brush strokes and with shape and form is generally not a good thing when painting.
If I can tell a soft edge brush was used (a lot) in an image, I probably won’t like how it’s been applied.
OH MY GOD THIS
