Re: Jen wants to paint fantastical things!

Despite what my avatar might show, I'm actually not so drawn to what Pyan decided to....present.....here.



You've had great pics posted up of your work, Jen. Watercolor and such usually aren't my thing as they tend to be a bit....thin for my taste, but they looked nice.

Re: Jen wants to paint fantastical things!

Yay Thank you!

Reason I love Watercolour is because it is so 'thin' and you can keep adding layers on top while the layers below shine through and affect the top layer. Then, if you wanna go thicker, just slap on some gouache.

Had Uni friends over for two days and went back to sculpting. Here are a few progress shots of my main character from Skal (iphone photos, so quite terrible):

And a painting of a pondering thief:

Judging from the tools that he's studying I would think we are looking at a pondering assassin.

Re: Jen wants to paint fantastical things!

As do I. (Best he doesn't break into shops selling drapes, though.)



By the way, in his profession he's likely to get whacks about his head; instead of letting it get on his wick, he's taken advantage of it....


*cough*

Re: Jen wants to paint fantastical things!

Is it just me, or is the door watching him?...

There were talks about 'leveling up' his gear and thus giving him a candelabrum on his head instead of a single candle

But I think I'll stick with the little candle for now!

Thief is almost getting his hands on some loot. But what is in that bottle? Water? Potato vodka? WHO KNOWS.

Fantasy art as it was meant to be..... Fantastic!


I love your characters, especially the thief (reminds me of myself) and Voresh.

Re: Jen wants to paint fantastical things!

Thank you

Another slightly more unfinished painting of an evaluation perhaps.

Re: Jen wants to paint fantastical things!

Really stunning stuff. This will sound like a weird compliment but your really good at fingers. Whenever I draw fingers, they end up looking like bananas hanging off a spade!

Re: Jen wants to paint fantastical things!

Haha Thanks!

For hands, you'd be surprised how often I reference them from my own. I own a mac, so I just use the built in program called 'Photo Booth' where I take reference pictures of hands and fingers in the pose needed. Then I exaggerate the hand depending on what kind of character it is I'm drawing.

Re: Jen wants to paint fantastical things!

If you don't mind, JenJen, I'll stick to looking at your finished product (and the working sketches) and let you trawl through those areas on YouTube....
