I had a little figure that I based this off of but due to the intense gloss that it has it was only loosely based while the shadows were based off my current understanding of them and not what was necessarily replicated on the figure. I'm still working on it so I will update this probably tomorrow.
Life study of a little figure I have in my room, it was sitting on my laptop as I drew it on my other computer. Took around 1.5 hours. I'm going to be doing more of these until I get a better understanding of value and the different types of light: directional, reflected, and occlusion. So yea, my blog may be boring for a while. :B
Over the course of a few days, I've managed to run into some amazing artists and some amazing artists have managed to run into me! Two huge inspirations that have run across me are the amazing Noah Bradley and Andrea Dailey, both of their portfolios are astounding. :)
Anyways, they've motivated me to pick back up on color studies and get over my fear and the pieces not being 100% color accurate. I still need work, but with practice and critique I will get there!
These are just two color studies of many I plan to do from the film Prometheus as well as some other bodies of work. I'm not focused on composition or detail more than I am the color; each one took around 20 minutes. The first screen shot can be found here and the second, here.
I still don't know if it's the value I'm getting off in some areas of the color itself. The Deacon's background for example seems like the lightest blues should be a different base and a bit darker. and the greenish background beyond the wall should be lighter and not so green.
I will understand how to properly pick out bases at some point. Oh, I will... *glares*
