10-9-15 Back in a flash
Piece I drew for a buddy of mine. Used some overlay stuff for the first time. And some cool texture brushes (verrrry faintly).

Something about this piece is just so...frankenstein? From the color balance to the textures, I had a really hard time bringing everything together to look like it was just a single artwork. Not to mention, I couldn't decide between drawing her in the armor, the suit, or just the tank and jeans. So I mushed em all together with success. 

Line art looked real nice, but like always as soon as the flats hit the canvas...all hell broke loose. Like the chitoge piece, I still wanted to stick to a single hue and just vary saturation + luminosity. But added some shading with a very general light source. Gotta remember to add that 2nd light source next time. Getting more confident with harder brushes (soft brushes look very artificial to me), but haven't quite gotten the boldness to paint in harder shadows. 

If you haven't read the All You Need Is Kill manga, it's pretty well done. Illustrated by Obata Takeshi of Death Note and Bakuman fame.

7-17-15 Lighting Cones

Like spheres. But cones. A good second step in my lighting learning fun!

Same principles apply in regards to applying primary, secondary, and bounced lighting to simple forms. However, unlike the sphere, there are two planes to be aware of (technically 3 if you consider the edge between them). No cast shadows, so it looks a little wonky. 

To be honest, I’m not sure how ‘correct’ these are, but just gotta keep practicin’!

7-15-15 Chitoge Process by Patchy9
7-15-15 Chitoge Process

Thought I’d share some process with you guys too. I’m usually pretty slow and inefficient. But this one took the slow and inefficient cake. 

I don’t even know why I drew the forms out on section 2. Ended up just adjusting everything by eye anyway. Or maybe it helped on some unconscious level.

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.
