I have been doing a few digital paintings lately for RedditGetsDrawn. I like to get a couple done each day. I then get bored and switch back to Python.
Anyway, here’s the paintings:
It’s been a long time since I’ve uploaded any pencil drawings to the site. During my recent visit to Wellington I picked up a new A5 sketchbook that I have been busy filling with pencil drawings. I also have a 4H pencil which is my favorite, certainly more enjoyable than HB pencil to use.
Much of these drawings are from photo reference, with some from photo and life.
I am offering digital painting portraits for cheap.
The following images are renders of 3d models i created inside maya. I’ve always used Blender over Maya but recently decided to give Maya a go. Like Blender, Maya also uses Python as a scripting language.
I’ve got modeling sorted, still have to learn rigging and animation. These are simple inside Blender, but i struggle with Maya.
My laptop is currently out of action. I do however have my phones which ive been getting back into since the laptop charger breaking.
This is a digital painting produced in sketchbook pro on the device. The original art was a water color painting – created by my friend Cathern.
This is some concept art for the game Cafrin 2: episode one.
The first game was created with python for the gameboy jam.
Formatted my laptop yesterday, backed up majority of my files on the system but forgot to backup my GIMP 2.8 settings. I had to create new settings for getting a thin to thick pressure look and make new brushes (default GIMP brushes are quite terrible). My old brushes are on my desktop computer, an 8 hour drive from here. I plan on getting the computer back in the next few weeks – I love those brushes I’ve got on it!
Here’s a portrait I did of my friend Angelique (went to TLC with her) because the format:
Line. Normally I go with a red color for the line – but mixed it up here and used the green. Working on a square format rather than the normal wide landscape. It felt restrictive and didn’t allow me to do the normal landscape effects I ususally use in my digital paintings.
Black and white tone. Simple, nothing special. But I like it.
Color. Usual color palette – yellow for a skin, red hair, and green for the background. No blue in this. I usually use blue for the sky/background and green for the ground. The square share is weird to work with.
Since moving to Hamilton I have gotten outside with my drawing and photography gear everyday. This is a great success because my art was really suffering and I had not found inspiration to draw for months.
I’ve been focusing on what I love – environments. Mixture of buildings and nature. There are plenty of seats around Hamilton that I can sit down at, relax and get a drawing done.
