desk object still life

Came out worse than expected. The colors are not satisfying. I'm better at this traditionally, but I think it touches the hearth of my problems with digital coloring...
I'll keep doing these.

Harry Potter studies

I still managed to finish my study for today

Emma Watson, from the Harry Potter movies. Not much for the movies themselves, but I used to love the books, and it's a theme to keep me from wondering what to draw next all the time.
The resemblance is not completely there, here nose is too long (I tend to do that) and her eyes are a bit weird (strangely shaped, a bit too high). I noticed that a bit too late though.

Aside from that, I might have found something to motivate me to keep up these studies more often. We'll see how it goes.

digital values and color tutorial

No drawing from me this time. Just a quick post to share a great tutorial I was showed.
I hope you enjoy, I certainly learned from it. view it her

Internet and suff

It's been a while... But I'm not dead yet.

Finally got internet in our new apartment (A bit less than a weak ago). It feels great not to have to go to school just to check my mail (yeah, I don't have any of that 3G technology. I'd rather not pay the monthly bill for that).

I have a lot of traditional real-sketchbook sketches, but I'm too lazy to scan those. I need a scanner, but good ones are really expensive...

So here's one of the only digital sketch I have done in this time

Our illustration professor had just given us a bunch of his brushes to play with. Some of them looked exactly like pencil, so I got carried away playing with it.

And another illustration for class. A gig poster design.

I've had comments on the bad types I use. I just don't know how to deal with type =( Practice makes better I guess, and I have very little in the matter.

That's all for now. Will try to approach a scanner soon hopefully. And I need to go to the zoo again too.
