Bloodsports #8 is over. I submitted it last night but I didn’t post the final illustration yet because I want to refine it a bit more. I wanted to show some of the material I did for the process though.
There were some changes this week in my usual way to do the studies. This time I didn’t record all the studies on livestream because I used some livestream sessions to draw sketches in order to make a bit more interesting and varied my lives. Then not all the studies were painting studies. This time I did some gesture drawings to study anatomy.
All these studies are related in some way to the Bloodsports #8 as the sketches I drew on livestream are. I need to start using my studies in a smarter way (not every study needs to be super rendered and polished) and apply them.
As last words, I want to say that I painted the female bust study following a tutorial by Daarken. You can find it HERE.
UPDATE: I forgot to say that for the third session of gesture drawing I used this website:
I forgot to upload these sketches here. I drew them on Tuesday, got a crit from Trevor and Kekai, and other Daggers, fellow artists and friends voted for their favs and gave me some feedback. Thanks everybody!! Now after two days not much productive (that happens) I’m working on the final concept for MAX MARNSTEN 2099!!! 🙂
This time I have no excuses, I have to submit something for the Bloodsports challenge. The environment design course’s over, and that was the main reason I wasn’t able to finish my entires for other previous bloodsports (hopefully I can someday finish my poster of Princess Mononoke which is the one I had in a more advanced point).
You have all the info related to the new challenge HERE
I’m going to work on the Sci-Fi IP, and this morning I was drawing the first sketches on my livestream session (I will do the study later tonight). I will draw more variations of the character but here are the first 8 (I drew 2 more but they were horrible).
Your favs? 😀
