I hope you had great end of the year celebrations and I wish you a happy new year.
In the last two years, I neglected my practice of anatomy, and studies in general, I'm always in awe when an artist masters the human body to create great character designs like https://www.artstation.com/django-jy , https://www.artstation.com/peleng , https://www.artstation.com/yokell , https://www.artstation.com/mischeviouslittleelf or https://www.artstation.com/rogner5th
In order to reach their level one day, I need to get back to the fundamentals so let's start ;)
I did a few with a mix of lineart and 2 values and the others directly by painting them. Here are few of my dailies (random poses from quickposes and pinterest, the first picture is based on photographies by Amel Kovich):
I'll also need to practice males and different body types. See you later with an another batch.
Second, a quick study from this morning, Arwen from the Lord of the Rings movies.
And finally, the quick study from wednesday that started the illustration (first picture). The original picture;
Didn't have time for a study yesterday but here's today's :) I tried to change the lighting a bit and adding snow. I'm still not entirely satisfied with this study, I want to be more loose and textured, I'll have a look at Lixin Yin and Craig Mullins' works for that feel :)
Also 2h for a study like this is a bit much, I need to simplify even more. Also I never do environments but it is fun. Anyways, I hope you enjoy!
Yesterday's study, a screencap from the movie "Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald". I really liked the mood and colors in the original. I focused on textures, colors and values, the face is a bit off but it's just a study so that's ok I guess :) .

I'll post today study this evening if I have the time ;)
See you later ;) !
Daily Study #4
I really liked the original photography and I wanted to give a try at something more suggested and textured. Here's the original photography.
I hope you enjoy that one as well!
