Daddy's Girls

Excuse me while I fan-art! Saw this movie last weekend and loved it- and here are the two deadly leading ladies. Both Art Rage digital paintings using oil pastel settings. Gamora took much less time than nebula and i think is a looser looking piece.

 Gamora- Zoe Saldana

Nebula- Karen Gillan

An experiment...

I made this in a programme called Art Rage 4 which simulates sort-of real life physics for traditional art materials... doesn't mean i entirely understand how to use them though :P It's pretty rough and ready but i think the better parts of it, like the actual portrait, make it a bareable finished piece for me... at any rate i can't spend any more time on it! 
My aim was to try and fit lot's of different media into it- to test the programme, but also so i could go for realistic skin and face, and more stylised hair- which are my favourite things.

I was inspired by this  photograph which i don't own: 

I made this tiny sketch to try and work out what i wanted the final to look like. I actually drew this having already finished the hair and face in Art Rage. I didn't know what i wanted her clothes to look like or how i was going to frame her, but i knew i was going for a Gustav Klimt look.

I used this painting by Klimt near the end of my process as reference for her clothes and line work.

Life Drawing

So, leading life drawing classes for 1st year animation wannabes leaves little time for life drawing! XD But here's what i have from the last month anyway. (I use the term animation wannabes in the most loving way possible, i am greatly enjoying getting some teaching experience!)

-all mainly biro pen and pro markers

Observational Drawing: Update

  I'm actually not entirely sure I've ever bothered to post my observational drawing here... but i have this time! Savour it!

This stuff was mainly from Edinburgh- National Museum and the World's End... when i wasn't working.
