Introducing SKULLPAINTHi everyone! The last few months have been pretty hectic regarding work (and still are) as I'm trying to cope with multiple projects at the same time, so I've been away for a while...Introducing SKULLPAINT4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'd like to introduce SkullPaint, a new studio/website I've created in order to showcase a variety of different art services I'm offering to the public! These services apply to both professional studios/agencies that need superior quality production art, as well as individuals who are devoted RPG players, fantasy/sci-fi/horror fans, or just art collectors.
Here's a brief list with the services:
RPG Character Creation
If you are an elite RPG player, you can bring your game avatar to life with a highly detailed illustration of your character, designed based on the description you will provide. You can also choose among various options (color/bw, bust/full body). Impress your friends and have it as a reminder of your epic gaming moments!

'DRAW-A-LONG' (With Me) - Part 3 - PreperationOK So the results are in and it looks very clear that the chosen reference for us all to draw will be.....Ewan Mcgregor'DRAW-A-LONG' (With Me) - Part 3 - Preperation2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I could not have predicted the result, but it seems from the feedback that it was his beard that won the vote, and people found this a more interesting reference than the rest. I am cool with this as I chose all 4 options comfortable with having to draw any of them.
So almost down to business, but firstly I wanted to describe the stages of preparing the drawing and paper we will use to draw our chosen reference.
1. Cropping - Before drawing you need to decide if you are going to tackle the full reference or just part of it - some of this will be dictated to you by the reference itself, some of it will depend on how confident or comfortable you are with certain aspects of the reference. For example, if you hate drawing hair (I do !) then you may decide to cut that part out of the reference. If you look at this picture of Ewan, I would say that

Simple drawing tips.I have been asked a lot of times If I could make a drawing tutorial, and to be honest I do not really feel I am at that level yet, and there is allready so many out there.Simple drawing tips.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But some simple pointers I can certainly do.
So here we go, 10 simple and effective tips, general and spesific.
1. Draw a LOT: Sure, techniques help, tutorials are awesome and books is teh shit, but in the end there are no shortcuts, if you do not draw a lot you have nobody but yourself to blame if you feel you are progressing slowly.
Bring your scetchbook ( get one! ) with you wherever you go, draw anything and everything, and doodle if you are on the phone, just basicly draw a lot and build up that mental library, it will only do you good.
2. Shade with the form: For instance an upper/lower arm is cylindrical, if you shade right across it tends to make it look flat even after blending ontop, if you curve your shading along it creates a greater illusion
Watchers (Permanent) Feature :)Like many others, I have in the past featured the work of those who choose to watch me as a thank you. Today marked the number of watchers I have going past 2000 and I worked out that if I celebrate 10 watchers work per week it would take me 4 Years to say thank you to each one, and saying thank you every 4 years is not really good enoughWatchers (Permanent) Feature :)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I said to myself, Why not open a group up that is completely dedicated to those lovely bunch of people who watch me? I can then have a permanent place to showcase their work and to say thank you every second, minute and hour of each day
However, I was worried that some people may think it is a bit arrogant or maybe just a way of getting more 'watchers' - overcome with the need to make sure I am not upsetting anybody - I thought I would have a poll, and let you decide!
So just to confirm the idea....
This would be a group set up to display the work of just the people who watch me, no restrictions (within DA guidelines) on the type

Lacrimosa Dies Illa.Lacrimosa Dies Illa3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It was a very sad day, full of tears, almost a year ago. I just painted my sister when she was pregnant and we knew the baby had some problems in her heart but her lil heart didn't resist and died before being born. That time (before the baby passed away) I painted my sis trying to represent her heart in those moments ("Fructus Ventris").
Months ago taking advantage of a new contest of realistic painting in my country I decided to paint this one -"Lacrimosa Dies Illa"- taking the meaning of 'sorrowful day or full of tears day'.
What I tried to represent there is a mom ( my sister ) holding in arms a lil kid that seems sleeping or sick or even dead. I didn't try to be direct about the dead meaning but it is in the background of my intention. The girl there is actually my lil niece (her lil sis was the dead one ), They are very alike and represents her lil sister in the way of La Pieta. The pain of a mother for her dead son.
The mother there is sad but she already cried a lot b

Stopping for a moment to live a bitI wanted to sketch around mythology becuz of a contest, then I remembered a conversation I had with some friends after some of reflections I had.Stopping for a moment to live a bit4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was thinking about honour and fame and goals and dreams. All of us would like some of fame, getting goals, reaching dreams, etc. We'd love making great things and getting some of recognition. Above all we as an artists always hope for support and appreciation for our art.
We can find more things we'd like to get: good job, a nice family, a nice house, money, a nice car, traveling, etc.
Our goals, dreams, wishes are nice and they can guide our steps in life but I was going beyond that and found that all of that doesn't care if our heart is insipid. If our day is just another day then that's just a burden.
Future is a world full of ghosts, sometimes even we feel frustrated for things that still don't come and we forget the present, the people around, the thigns we have.
Even our past kills our memory and also doesn't let us tasting

Third! NEW RULES. After asking you, we decided to introduce MILD quality filtering. This will be strictly objective. Our personal taste wont't dominate. The guidelines are easy to remember: only fractals with at least 3-4 varied properties will be accepted. So no basic gradient + mandelbrot zoom, or changed gradient + 3 branched newton will get into our gallery anymore.
Fourth: help and critique system. This will be fairly easy. We will have a new folder for artworks that demand critique. You will be permitted to submit there one piece per week, but quality filtering won't apply to them. We will
One of realism.In the last week I have received a few notes and emails from people who seem concerned that I'm walking away from graphite realism. Nothing is further from the truth; it will always be the main focus of my work. But I have to say work like "Waking up the Ghost' and "Fence Line" is just as significant to me, they give me creative outlets that drawing alone could never provide. Abstraction in a sense is more "real" then the illusion of realism could ever be. These works are about material, paint, composition, color, construction, and a strong feeling of discovery it's not an illusion-it is what it is. For me, this kind of work is not so much a narrative as it is a starting point for the imagination of the viewer. These works are not meant as "easy" to grasp, such as realistic drawing of Johnny Depp where the viewer only needs the ability to recognize and only thing that get stimulated in the viewers mind is the "wow it looOne of realism.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
