    10 typical perspective errors →

    electricalice:

    Drawing perspective is considered one of the hardest things in art, except the mistakes usually done are pretty much always the same and can be avoided with a little care.

    1. Lines not reaching the vanishing point

    Well this is pretty simple to avoid but it’s the most…

    Why do you do this to me

    image

    There’s a reason behind color zones, but James Gurney does a much better job at explaining it than I do. Keep in mind this doesn’t cover lighting, just the local color of skin.

    Although there are ‘color palettes’ here, I really wouldn’t recommend using them for your own (as in saving the image and eye dropping them) art, I did this rather quickly so this probably not very accurate. These are just my personal preferences when it comes to color. I don’t have saved palettes; I pick colors depending on the lighting or mood as I am working on a painting. BUT IF YOU WANT TO GO RIGHT AHEAD.

    As for texture, lolidunno, I just use a lot of scatter brushes until it sort of looks like skin texture??? I honestly don’t worry about texture though unless it’s like a really close up view of a face or whatever. You can find my brushes here (you’ll need Photoshop CS or higher).

    I am flattered that people are seeking advice from me, but keep in mind that I am still learning myself, so I am by no means the best person to be asking. Hope this helps you out though, anon!

    bless u

    As a little reward for doing computer stuff that makes my eyes burn today, I finished this up. Zelda from Skyward Sword, which I am loving a lot. Experimented a little bit with a few things, but mostly trying to see how long colored pieces take me for possibly opening up commissions.
Done in Manga Studio 5.

    Morning warm-up. Trying to get a handle on how to draw people in clothes and found some Sherlock stills to work from. Also I wanted to paint something so I tried Yvette. That was more of an exercise in trying to define shadows through shapes rather than line, and I think if I was to continue the piece, I would take pictures of how bandanas actually sit on top of heads. And do a better sketch- a horizontal switch showed lots of flaws in the original drawing that I should have corrected before slapping paint on it. XD But, it’s not too bad for a 30 minute speedpaint practice.

    Morning warmup. It’s my Harvest Moon hubby! Or rather almost-boyfriend. But he will be my HM hubby once I finish bribing him with coffee and mushrooms.  
Today’s warm-up was a little longer than most since it’s been a while and I wanted to get lots of practice in. And I kind of wanted to draw this guy, and then I wanted to paint him, and the rest you can see.
Now to stop procrastinating and get to work.

    Morning warmup. Experimenting with just a single-color graphic and a new brush in MS.
And this happens every single time I do pigeon pose in yoga.
