The characters you see below are the line up for sketches that I will take on a week & sculpt through the month of June. There are 9 characters and only 4 weeks in June.
I've got a little bit of anatomy work here this week. I'm making more progress, overall not much reference was used during this study. My weakest area is the back muscle groups. If I do spend more time on this I would address areas in this order; hand, forearm, ears, eyes.
Similar to last weeks post during my warm up sketching I landed on a interesting design. That I then took directly into Zbrush and sculpted out. I am enjoying this faster pace work and I'll probably do a few more of these in the future.
I'm not gonna lie, I had some difficulty getting this week's posted. Most the work I had don't over the course of the week but actually getting to sit down, draft, & compose this post took a lot of effort.
I am pleased to announce that I launched a Patreon account!
What does this mean:
- More content...
- More interaction...
- Most importantly growth!
This will not affect my public weekly posts.
More eyes for this weeks work. The human eye is interesting in it's design. Not only do they express a lot of emotion they are very personalized for each individual. Then comes the structure and placement. Symmetrical positions on the face surrounded by asymmetrical organic forms; don't get me started with eye movement... asymmetrical synchronization.
This week I didn't have much time so I just worked on some eye studies.
It is interesting how slight of a shape change around the eye can communicate such drastically different information.
This week I haven't had much time to focus on art, so here are some of the sketches I did accomplish.
This week I've been focusing on cleaning up this illustration. I went ahead flattening all my previous work then painting over, cleaning up the shapes and tones. Decided to work with the two light points; a natural night source streaming in from a near window, and the primary warm light filling in from a doorway.
This week I'm posting a sketch that I've had on the back-burner for a few weeks. Touching it off and on; here and there. Still don't have a full direction to where I want to take it. Currently I am liking the level it's at.
