What I worked on this week



  • I just wanted to share what I worked on in the way of personal projects this week. This week in particular feels like I've made a lot of progress. Feedback's always awesome, but not necessary πŸ™‚

    Texture and deet practice (gonna do this every morning with my linework for as long as I can) It's amazing how wrong my colour guesses are πŸ˜„

    I love your work, I love your work! Oh and I just love texture!
    You did an impressive amount of work, GREAT job!

    I really want to try a square strawberry by the way.
    Your molten work is really nice. It be fabulous if I could get to making textures in 2019. So much I want to do.

    Your first character's face is thumbs up and I love how his shield seems to have a face as well. Like a Pac Man with a scar on his face, mirroring your character and his bandage face. And yet his hair is still awesome.

    Second character and that owl he's boss. Just thinking out loud. It be funny if the lightening bug was the light inside her lamp instead of the candle. Then I would totally understand her anger.

    Third character, unless that bag is a Mary Poppins bag.... I dunno lols it's really amusing though. I did look and couldn't find any crumbs on the ground. I saw some on his sleeve.

    Fourth character: Your animal friends seem to like to snack on each other haha. I do wish the ground was connected a bit more. Sort of seems like they float. Angular lines are really nice to tell this story.

    Fifth characters: funny how they just realise they've been seen lols.

    Overall pretty fabulous πŸ˜ƒ


  • SVS OG

    @art-of-b These are so good!!


  • Pro

    Wow, really good and that is so much work for just one week!



  • @heather-boyd Thanks for all the kind words and feedback πŸ™‚ I may make some small changes based on your observations before I choose which ones to throw in the portfolio.

    I had not in any way noticed that the shield was a kind of mirror for the character! That's an awesome observation 😁



  • I saw all of these on your instagram! They’re awesome! Very expressive dnd kids. Love the lines color everything. I have the painting textures class queued up. I have to finish the color classes first though cause im jusr awful at coloring.



  • @art-of-b Awesome art you have been really busy

    @art-of-b Your work is great, you have a very consistent and recognizable style. I have been following you on Instagram for a short time, and I can immediately recognize your work when I’m scrolling through my feed. Have you focused effort specifically on developing your own unique style, or did it just happen naturally over time? How long have you taking courses with SVS?



  • @Art-of-B I really like how you use strong shapes like the owl's outline. Very nice work.



  • FANTASTIC WORK. I love your characters and color application! I love the pastel like texture for your pieces. I can't wait to see more!



  • @swordofodin The painting and texture class is definitely worth it πŸ™‚

    Well that's good πŸ˜€

    As for style I think over the years I did make some decisions as to what I wanted my style to look like. As in saying to myself 'I like smooth linework. I gotta smooth out those lines' or 'I really like using texture. I gotta learn to incorporate it without using simple texture filters'. But really, for the most part, it's just kinda evolving as I produce. Saying 'yes please' or 'no thank you' as I look at other people's work.

    As for how long I've been tryin' out the SVS videos I think I took the painting texture and deets liveclass last year around April. That's when I really started trying to utilize the videos.
