BerryBubbleBlast Posted September 26, 2015 Share Posted September 26, 2015 Hello everyone!Quite recently I decided to go on the long journey called The Practice in order to get closer to the goal of Becoming a Better Artist. Now, this journey will take a lot of time, and I can't always know which is the right path. Therefore I'll frequently be discussing my journey here and listen to any thought, suggestion, idea and whatnot you might have on how I can reach my goal.That was the analogy I first used when I described what my intentions were with my last thread at the previous forum. It still applies as I'm still practicing my art and will continue to do so for a lot longer. That said, I'll be posting my art, 3D-models, and eventually animations as well here as I discuss what my thoughts and ideas were with said art. Occasionally I'll also talk about art related things which I believe others might find useful as well, also right now I do have a large scale project I'm currently planning for which I'll share my ideas about it soon enough as well.If you see anything in my art that doesn't feel right/is missing something which can make it better, then I'd be happy for any feedback or critique you can give me on my work! Now, I do actually have something I've created just recently which I might just as well share straight away. Lizardmen Skink practice sketch 2The last few weeks I've been challenging myself with 1-minute sketches, as in only using one minute do draw each sketch. However this time I decided to skip it for once and take as much time as I deemed fit for this image. The image itself is a Skink, a sentinent race from the Lizardmen army of the Warhammer tabletop game universe. I sketched it as I wanted to practice drawing them as well as drawing something from a slightly odd pose, as I still need to practice drawing things in different perspectives and poses.I first sketched the head to the left in order to get an understanding for how it looks like. However since I had so much space left on the paper, I decided to draw the backside of a Skink as it's spying something from behind a few vines just to try and draw something happening. There's a lot of details still missing on the head in order to make it not look like a skull, but this had to do for now. To be honest I was actually more interested in the placement of the frill, eye and the mouth in relation to each others. And yes, according to other official art and the tabletop army model I have the eye is supposed to be that big. It's also supposed to kinda be like a single coloured pearl, though it's hard to tell exactly as I don't really have any good eye-only referece to go by.The back pose is quite interesting with all the big scales the Skinks tend to have on their backs. These scales are what I've seen on an actual army model, but sadly isn't visible on any of the official artwork I've seen. Therefore I can't say for certain that this is how they look, though that's a part of the learning process, eh? To first draw something one way, evaluate whether it looks right or not, and then draw it again even better. They're also a part of the project I mentioned earlier that I'm working on, so the more I can learn about them, the better. That's all I have to show for today. If anyone has any thoughts, ideas or critique, then feel free to share them! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
