Greetings friends! To make things short and sweet, I'm a digital art & animation student from Mexico with a passion for visual development and concept art for videogames. Below I've posted some of my favorite illustrations along with some work I did as the lead visual development artist for a student game project called Tleli and The Deep. I tried to show a variety of styles I can achieve. Any feedback would be amazing! Hope you all are having a great time at the Lightbox Expo!
Marshall opens Stan's mind. Alternative title: "Dammit Marshall!" Inspired by Marshall's hawk-like direct gaze to camera when he explains a point and his owlish wisdom, he had to be a bird of prey. Polychromos pencil on paper for the morphs, then into Photoshop for some extra drawing and general digital tomfoolery.
Dear Community, let me introduce you to a wild species unique to Southern California. He rises tall and gazes on the horizon, foreshadowing the future of arts and education, eyeing for talent and goodwill. He is a highly cooperative creature, always ready to stand up for students in need. I mean, look at that ear shape, that cheekbone, that playful spark in the eyes, that noble posture... No doubt, it must be him — Meershall, the High Meerkat of Arts. Oh and hi, I'm Lex from Ukraine, and this is my first challenge submission Ever™. The illustration is quarter imperial, so slightly under A3 in size. I did lots of sketches, a preliminary drawing, and then the final piece. I love watercolor, Marshall loves watercolor, so it all made sense to me. I had a blast making it, so I hope Ethan and the community have fun viewing it, too!
Heyo friends!! This is my poster for an animated action / comedy film about me and my little brother! I am 10 years older than him (currently I'm 22, studying digital animation) and he is just about to turn 12. One of our favorite things to do, other than constantly tease each other, is have pillow and/or foam sword fights. We each act out a different character (I am always the antagonist of course), set up fun rules to keep it interesting, and overall it's a blast. With that said, after being stuck in quarantine with the little guy, this has been pretty much a big chunk of my life right now. Barely got it done in time with my college finals, but woo! Super happy with it. Hope you like it! And good luck to everyone and your amazing pieces! :D
Hi @Diego Garcia Figueroa, these are nice studies! I attached a brief paint over for one of your images. My paint over doesn't tackle every principle about painting, I mostly focused on your values and lighting since that is what you mentioned. I just darkened your shadows a bit to give the image a stronger sense of light. I also added more indication of light and shadow in the fences, just so that there is a bit of a stronger feel of light consistency in your image. So in general, I think what you could work on is making the areas in your images where the light hits a bit lighter, and making your shadow areas a bit darker. The stand alone character/portrait paintings are feeling a bit flat, and it's because you're staying in that middle value range. I would say your Cthulu piece feels the strongest because you've hit such a high range of light lights, and dark darks, and this gives it a better sense of lighting. If you can incorporate that range into more of your images then I think your paintings will feel punchier. Of course, this won't apply to pieces with more ambient lighting scenarios, but we'll get there when we get there :). Hope this helps! I didn't go that far into depth with brush strokes, so let me know if you'd want me to tackle that as well!
Wow these are so awesome!! You have such a dynamic style, super appealing shapes. Really solid work, I just love looking at these!!! Especially those hands. If I had to say anything I noticed (nitpicking I may be wrong) but I think a few of your figures may have gotten a bit stiff, maybe too focused on the contours. But these are just 5 minutes or less so it’s bound to happen especially if your focused on getting appealing shapes, which is one of the most important things. 💯🙌 really nice line quality too!! The large majority of these look super dynamic, awesome.
These are amazing! I really like the flow and confidence of the lines you use for the legs. The foreshortening and overlapping of elements in some I think are very well done too! Something that has helped me is to draw the same pose twice or even 3 times in a row! Could be with the same amount of time or less, but repeating it and iterating it can help you perfect it and find new ways of solving things. I know this is pretty much impossible to do during the actual session, but afterwards it's something that I have done which has helped that muscle memory!
Impressive drawings! You use your time well. However, since you asked, I would recommend you try to include fewer anatomical details and focus on proportions. I can not be sure to what point is a stylistic choice, so I apologize if your manipulation of proportions is in your full control.
Hello good friends! I figured (pun intended) I'd share my most recent figure drawing practices as my first post on Proko 2.0! These were all done during the past 6 months, and for the most part are between 2 - 5 minutes. I'd like to hear what you guys think I can improve on and if possible to also see your own! Thanks in advance, and have a great one :)
