Sketch Daily for Nov 16th. Anna Fisher, “first mother in space.” Can finally see after days of having a headache. Little bit of experimenting with style which I kinda like

Surprise Party! for today’s theme. All I can say was it was fun trying something different. Haha

Sketch Daily for Nov 10th (Engines). Decided to experiment a bit and sketches the glowing heat off a set of V8 headers. Could have been better but was fun anyways

Today’s attempt for sketchdaily (celebrity portraits). I chose Amy Adams, and am reasonably happy with how this turned out. Been struggling with how to do digital portraits oddly and it finally clicked in my head to try a toned paper approach. Still have much to learn with blending, but it was great practice!

After many failed attempts at another idea I came up with I reverted back to my original 30min sketch for today’s SketchDaily prompt (Last day of Earth). It started out as a tiny study of a landscape hence the bigger strokes, but I’m reasonably pleased with it. Good practice and fun experimenting with the flat brush again

Thought I would post some studies I did a while back from Crtl+Paint's Basic Photoshop rendering series. The basic line drawing and reference image was provided for both, but all values and textures are of my doing.

This first one was rendering a painted sphere with the reference on the left, and my image on the right

I made a mistake with improperly selecting the foreground hence the jagged and sharp edges around (I think I should have used a mask?), but overall I am pleased with how it turned out.  It’d definitely a lot trickier to render value in digital, but I suspect once I learn the feel of the brush tool it’ll go a lot quicker.

This is a vase from the same series, but the image I created. I think this came out a lot better than the first I think, although the glow around the vase has much to be desired.

Definitely a learning experience that was surprisingly fun. Hope to improve on these rendering times and techniques in the future.
