Doing these sort of paintings every day has helped me improve a lot I think. My eye for color and composition has improved vastly from what I can tell! Still have a long way to go though, so I should be doing these for quite some time (or at least I hope so!)
Also, as a note, these are all very rough pieces. All of them are done in under an hour and some of them are really more of an experiment for myself than anything else (but I'm posting 'em because... well that's what blogs are for aren't they!). So yeah, they could all use a lot of refinement. I also did not use any reference for any of these (they could definitely all benefit from some good reference)
Anyway I hope you like them, and please let me know what you think!
|Fun piece to paint! (well, even more so than usual) Supposed to be some giant evil-ish tower thing.|
|This piece definitely needs a lot more work on it before it'll be anything.|
|This was mostly just an experiment with color and to try painting a jungle from my head... I found out it is difficult (haha, and that guys face really bothers me, he needs to be fixed). I should practice that some more now!|
|First attempt painting from my imagination on my laptop with my older and smaller graphire4 wacom tablet. The colors were really wonky when I looked on my desktop (mostly just over saturated). So I just pulled it back a bit in photoshop.|
|Fun piece! I experimented with painting using only the size of my brush set to pressure sensitivity for most of the painting and having opacity manually controlled. I really like how the painting style can look (I'm still experimenting with it).|
|Second piece from my imagination that I painted on my laptop.|
|I liked the colors for this!|
|This piece really needs a lot of reworking. Supposed to be some sort of ship in an abandoned building that this guy is using as a workshop of sorts.|
|Mostly just an experiment with color.|
|Third painting with laptop. Ha, and that ship originally looked just like a star destroyer... ha, I tried to change it a bit, but I'm not sure if it helped too much.|
|Kind of a color experiment, and I think I like how it came out.|
|Just painted this today actually (err... or yesterday now I guess) Haha, some kind of random elements, but experimenting mostly with some painting techniques.|
Haha, I will be quite impressed if anyone actually takes the time to read all of that text!
I hope some of the pieces were worthwhile though. I'd really love to know which ones you guys like!
I intend to start smaller and more frequent postings soon now, so hopefully I'll be putting up some stuff you enjoy looking at.
