Color process


And the month is already nearing its end. For today I decided to work on one of my sketchbook pages further. Instead of drawing the lines per hand in photoshop I went with paths. I still have to learn a lot in that regard. I also quickly included a castle in the clouds in the background (not done with paths yet) to give the picture more depth and some kind of story^^ 

My original sketch you can find here.

Maleficent, Header and creepy dude


Study-time! I'm still trying to get the hang of values as well as skin. So here it goes. Angelina Jolie has such a cool nose and sensual lips. It's not from this world :3

Next I started out with a sketch for a header. Did a few versions. Let's see when I will finish it and with what version...

I really really don't wanna show you this. But I promised to document everything here. EVERYTHING! So here it goes. It's really awful. I already was burned out and hungry when I started it and that's exactly how it looks. I still am not good at painting faces from imagination but I'm also not THAT bad^^

Testing out an art style


Big disclaimer upfront: This isn't my art style. I just wanted to try out something new and see what I like and don't like about it. I try to look up the original artist, because her paintings are amazeballs.

After I drew the face of my character based on her faces I kinda got the hang of the skin color and then colored the rest of my characters body out of my imagination. My original sketch you can find here.

I really like the skin and her lips but her eyes are way to doll like. They creep me out quite a bit :D :D

The second sketch I drew a few hours later to see how much I still remember. The skin isn't as smooth but I like her face overall much more. Less creepy. 

I think trying out different styles which you like will help you grow as an artist. Because you will only adapt and keep elements you like. For example certain color combinations, shape of the lips, etc. That way you still can create your own style. As long as you don't copy other peoples art one to one and claim it to be your own I think it's a great learning experience.

In the wind


Trying to draw a more complicated pose from my imagination. I think her arms and legs are quite relaxed but my problem always are the shoulders. They look really cramped :/
And yes I'm quite in love with flowy long hair at the moment ♡
