Environment Studies by Heyriel Environment Studies by Heyriel
Heya everyone! Been almost a week since the last upload -but no original work this time, sorry.
I finally created and account on ConceptArt.org and looking through all the fantastic Sketchbooks there made me realise that I really ought to do more studies of...everything. So there, landscapes. And also lots and lots of figure drawings, but these are NSFW (tumblrrrrr~) xD 5 watercolor paintings and 25 dinA3 pages with figures in 4 days -I need to sleep more. :lol:

So anyway: Hope you enjoy these and have a bit of patience until I'm done with the art trades and upload those. Comments are appreciated! :love:

Studies are great! I do them as well. But I mainly do studies for hands.

These are beautiful, they feel completely natural, and they definitely coincide with the poll that's currently going on :XD:
I also like the drastic change of tone between the second and third environments, you really worked well with adjusting the landscape shades and lighting to the weather, they match quite nicely :nod:

Props to you, I suck at doing environments. Do you just go out to these sites and draw to get better?

No, actually these are the first environments I ever painted...I simply picked a Stock photo and started ^^; Going out is not really an option anyway since I couldn't paint with oils to save my life xDD

Holy fuck, these are pretty. ♥
and excellent studies! I like how I pretty much see the same tool being used with little variation - that shows skills.
that last one is probably my favorite... it looks like an eminent storm...

Wow, you're really working hard towards improvement, no wonder I'm seeing so much of it! These look lovely like classical paintings, you could probably frame and sell them! I love how you make the landscape look wild but also soft and inviting :love:

I will
Right now I was thinking of doing this challenge of making 50 unique characters using the same species and colourscheme with minimal accessories

LttleGhost Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I haven't started >.>
haha
and I might bring the number down to 20 characters

and I was going to draw humans for it
and I'm drawing myself right now it's going pretty well
my obsession with homestuck is making me draw humans and humanoids so... yey XD

It's always good to get out of your comfort zone! Did you take a picture for the portrait or are you doing it in front of a mirror?
Ah, Homestuck, everybody in Tumblr is talking about it but I have no idea what it even is. A comic? TV show? :?

I'm not actually looking at a mirror or picture right now (all though I go back and forth running to the mirror while I pace >.<)
but I am trying to do a more accurate picture of myself still, I was noticing some interesting stuff while I was admiring erhm looking at myself in the mirror
Such as my deep set (but at the same time almond shaped) eyes and my canine teeth are kinda yellowed even though the rest of my teeth are white
bluh



Homestuck is this ms paint webcomic with some animations and a few interactive games
It is incredibly slow and "wtf is this shit?" at the beginning but it really is a brilliant and clever story if you can get through the INCREDIBLY slow and long beginning XD
It has funny and silly parts and then some parts where I was so absorbed that I wasn't able to get away from the computer XD

I do too; Having a ref is one thing but on my own? The quality goes straight to hell (in comparison). Let's learn together -be sure to show me when you're doing some :la:
