I got so hooked and intent on trying to learn digital i put off going back to my roots, but today, with a mix of inspiration here and there i finally got down to business.
I thought of the concept some time ago - sometime around the falling out girl and such. But i havent been the best at getting my concepts onto paper. However! Today was sketchfest, and after doing a few sketches, and talking about painting in the car on the way home from lunch i decided to bite the bullet and do it!!
First thing was...to take a reference picture. Once again i was the only female of appropriate age so i had to use my face. I didnt feel like searching for hours for just the right face, and I knew mine wasnt really correct for my vision but. I modified it quite a bit :P
So, when making a digital sketch i altered myself into something I thought would suit so much more:
Next step! The canvas!
|i put it all onto transfer paper so i could easily put my sketch on the canvas, while moving the hand a bit to make it more at an angle|
|very very basic, but it gives you someting to work around|
|my work space! a bit of wine, alot of paint, and some basic colors put onto the picture. always an ugly time :P|
|the skin was pretty hard, still is might i add!|
but so far so good! the skin will without a doubt take me ages to sort out, but i know the hair will be lots of fun ^^
who knows if it goes well, id love to make a serious of bird girl pictures! :D
Oh and Ill be posting all of my sketchfest pictures tomorrow :) see you then!
