Drawing/taking notes on paper at the Ministry of Education. One work is a from Fairfield.
Goku. This was drawn at by a boy at Fairfield Community Centre
Portrait from GetsDrawn.
This is a selection of work from my Christchurch Sketchbook. I uploaded these works sometime ago but never posted all of them. It’s helpful to have the images just sit in my server, wait for the day when I will use them in a post.
These works are created with imagination and one from photo reference.
My e-ticket. Copyed from my plane ticket for the flight from ChCh to Palmerston North. The rest of the page is figures and shapes created from imagination. The ideas were low-poly, cartoon characters.
This was drawn on the flight from ChCh to Palmy. The reference were fashion models from the Air New Zealand magazine. Sadly I didn’t have a sharpener for my pencil and had to use colored pencil. With pencil I would of been able to focus on the detail, and tonal elements of the work.
Shapes of character. Breaking it down into blocks. There are also some quick sketches of Brooke cooking dinner.
I’m currently in Wellington for the weekend. My plan is to get lots of drawing done, and once I’m back in Levin scan and paint over. So far I have drawon on Cuba St and attended a life drawing class at Vincents.
Here’s a selection of works that I uploaded some time ago but never posted. These are all work from around my ChCh trip.Portraits. Gorillas and such. This in Wellingtonduring my last trip here. Good old Wellington Library.Exploring shapes. This journal is full of studies of breaking objects down to basic shapes.Portrait studies. These were all from imagination, taking the same image and repeating it – evolving.Animal studies. These are done via reference thanks to the websie PixelLovelyColored pencil portraits.
I don’t think Imuch updates will be happening this weekend. I’d like to get the life drawing works I did tonight uploaded, and written about since they are fresh in my brain.
So no updates for over a week. I’ve been playing Diablo 3 during the the week. I finished it on normal as a Wizard and partway though Nightmare. I’m not hugely motivated to play it right now – likely a good thing as I can get more important tasks done like artwork. I enjoyed the playthough but Blizzard isn’t the same anymore.
I have a new tablet pen and a new place to stay – so it’s a fresh start. I havn’t done any digital painting since I lost my tablet pen so I was happy to get back into it.
Thought I’d give Photoshop CS5 a blast since I have it on this laptop (though recent updates to GIMP are wonderful).
One of my goals I wanted to do with digital painting this month is look though my life drawings I’ve done this past term and paint over digitally. I wanted to stick with the colors that I had been using in traditional media, experimenting with techniques and brushes. I’m happy with this work but need to practice further with the digital tablet.
No background. All from imagination.
Background added. Painted this last night.when watching Primer. I’ve seen Primer several times before but it’s that type of film that I never get sick of.
The EOW of the week over at Conceptart.org is Orbital Refinery. I want to get into these activitys now that my tablet is functioning. I visit the site often for inspiration. A google for Refinery gave me some images that I worked from but nothing I’m happy with. I havn’t go alot of plans this week so may work on this further.
More ideas for the EOW. Mostly just sketches or doodles. These arn’t really going anywhere.
Shapes! I used perspective heavily in my life drawing this last term so want to transfer this to the digital realm.
And finally, just a bunch of quick sketches. Again from imagination. This was just used as a exercise to warm up into using the tablet again.
That’s all for now. Expect to see further digital works.
