Got sick of doing exercises, so it was sketch time. Kinda one-dimensional as far as characters go, but she’s fun. Just had to use aiz’s patented vacant expression.
Experimented with some glossy material rendering on her glove thingys (What exactly are they anyway?)
Also tried adding some more dynamic lineart thickness to spice things up.
This happens all the time. I start off with an idea or concept I want to practice and as I draw, I add more and more concepts until the entire thing grows into something that’s not particularly focused on anything.
In this case, I wanted to experiment with hair textures and forms that I don’t normally use: short, evenly-chopped hair (left) and loose, straight/drape-y hair (right).
Somewhere along the way, experimenting with dynamic lineart thickness and non-barbie head expressions were also mixed in with varying levels of success. Also made some attempts at a more consistent male face/head. But just couldn’t do it, so I just scrapped that.
|I've been a lurker on this community for about a year, just admiring the art and browsing. Finally was inspired enough and worked up the courage to take a swing at it. So Christmas 2013, picked up a sketchbook, some pencils and decided to learn to draw. Deviantart tutorials have been super awesome at teaching and I've recently picked up a tablet so I hope to keep posting up stuff and track my progress.|
