I thought I would just create one space for all of my Artschool assignments going forward so I don't have to create a new topic for every term. So I'll be starting with some assignments from Term 4.A few draw overs to start. Applying muscles over an imagined skeleton is something I've really struggled with so I've decided to put more effort into this part of the assignment. For the next set, I'm going to push the perspective and foreshortening some more. First part of the color and light assignments, this is another area where I struggle a lot so I'm going to do these a few more times. The drawing is from a commission I did a few days ago for the goddess of absinth, who guides drunk people back to there homes at night. Since absinth has a green tint to it and often comes in bottles that are also green, I decided that green would have to be in each color scheme. I like the first and last ones, the first has a slightly sickly look and her dress is sort of a vomit colored yellow-green, which feels pretty appropriate. The last one has a much more friendly look that I like. Of course, it could just be that her dress is the same color as Megara's from the Disney Hercules movie
Amazing work so far!Other than the options you mentioned, I really liked the second one as well. The colors feel very well balanced and they don't still away from checking the character's expression as well.
Excited to see a final render of this 😍
Quick question about commissions: how did you start out? And where do you get your requests from?
Thanks! I liked the second one too, really the only one that I didn't like was the third one.
For commissions, I started out getting them on DeviantArt years ago. I've had some success with things like Fiverr and sketchmob. Most of them have come through Reddit, there are a few subreddits where artists can post that they're looking for work. I've never been able to do it full time though but the jobs are becoming more frequent so I'm hoping in the next year or two I'll be able to make it my full time gig.
First part of my lighting assignment. I'm feeling good about creating shadows for cubes so I'm going to draw some more complex shapes and do this again
that does not look like a struggle of muscules over a skeleton. WOW. those are really good anatomy studies.
@ghostmonst3r Thanks! It took a while to do and definitely felt like a struggle so I'm glad it doesn't look like it was a struggle.
Some noncube shapes with some lighting. I'm hoping to finish the third assignment of the color and light class tomorrow and then move onto lesson 5.
Done with the final lighting assignment! Moving onto lesson five tomorrow, I'm still going to do some of the imagined skeletons with muscles because those have been really helpful even if they've been a struggle. Adding in foreshortening has definitely made them a lot harder
Wow, these look amazing! Congratz!I can imagine how this can level up one's game of light and shadow for characters as well, and how nice to see knowledge like perspective put together with this one. Turned out awesome! Congrats again!
the cleanliness of the gradients, edges, and selection masks you used really gives me the vibe of older physical airbrushed works.
I feel pretty good about these poses, so now I'm going to try out playing with proportions and move onto term 5
They all look really good man! Congratz!
There a few of them that I feel like they are missing part of the neck (of the trapezius muscle feel a bit short, I guess?) but overall they look amazing!
very brave angles to tackle
