Worst Fear- That your dad was responsible for Bambi's mom.
Same here. My schedule is out of wack! I am loving that line work of yours that has Pete's Dragon in it.
I'm taking a schoolism class, Nathan Fowkes Color and Light. It's taking me FOREVER to get assignment 3 done. I think I started this class several months ago. Sigh.
On the plus side, Lisa got a visit from the Tooth Fairy that night.
I'm hoping to be able to enter the competition this month! Last month I bit off more than I could chew and then I got sick, so I wasn't able to get my piece done in time. I'm hoping a more simple concept will allow me to finish in time.
Posting my progress here to keep me accountable. Here's my idea. Still need to work on some drawing problems and play with the palette before I render it out.
Oh, wow. Just want to say thank you to all of you who helped steer my illustration to what it became. I was lost with it for a while! And a big shout out to Tyson, who I know was feeling a bit down after the last competition. He makes really good work, and it paid off for him in this particular competition! Good job, Tyson!!! Congrats to the rest of the finalists and to everyone else; there were a lot of amazing pieces that I think could easily have taken 1st place right along with me.
Loving this contest! Fall is my favorite season when I'm in a colder climate, so I'm loving the vibe from all of the entries. Here's my contribution. I wanted to make it into project, so I pretended it was in a songbook for kids. If you want to listen to the arrangement I made for the song, I have it on my instagram.
Mwahaha, while all of you are busy with Inktober, I shall sneak in and win this one. Just joking! Monsters are are totally out of my comfort zone. I am super pumped to see what crazy monsters people come up with. @Marsha-Kay-Ottum-Owen already has a head start!
Here's mine. I don't have anything fancy in terms of tech, but I've been trying to improve the ergonomics. I just have a folding table with a standing desk on top (varidesk). There are levers on the sides to lift it up and down. I have a board under the table to rest my legs, so they can be at a 45 degree angle when sitting and I have extra butt cushion on an office chair. I think my tablet is still a bit too high for drawing when I'm sitting, so I'll have to modify the holder.
I have a small 12 inch one. I really like it, just wish I had found a screen protector for it, cause the screen is getting pretty scratched up in the place I draw the most. I also have to make sure to set the pressure sensitivity to soft, otherwise I have to press down way too hard.
@LauraA Sweet, I love seeing your versions. Omg, you were so good at the beginning and end exercise. Great job on the 360 too! That exercise is insanely hard.
@Lovsey Hah, thanks! Those shorts are a bit more modest than the Speedos the model is wearing at least.
Ok, did the 2 person interaction ones.
@LauraA Hah, I'm pretty sure you're setting the high standard here.
More stuff. Had a hard time as usual!
360 exercise. You take a photo of the model provided and then draw it from different angles from your imagination. You're right @LauraA, it was so hard! Still need to do 2 more poses. This one took so long. I have no idea if I got the feet close or not. They were probably the hardest part.
I probably don't work as much as some of you all, but I do have flare ups every once in a while, it sucks! Besides resting, I think exercise- yoga, weight training, and specific rsi stretches along with being able to shift my sitting/standing position easily while I work has been the most beneficial. I slack off on the exercise sometimes, and getting back into it is what usually seems to help banish the rsi the quickest. Switching to a tablet with a screen has also helped. I also take magnesium supplements and have tried to set up my work station as ergonomically as possible. My arms and legs can rest in a neutral position, my tablet is set at a comfy drawing angle, and my main screen is angled so I can look straight ahead. I have a comfy chair that can swivel, and my whole setup can lift up so I can stand periodically. I also have to remind myself to relax as I draw, as sometimes I tense things unnecessarily. Like sometimes I have a death grip on my stylus, and I really don't need to do that to draw.
I hope you can figure out some things that work for you!
I feel a bit rusty. The heads one was harder than I thought. I had a hard time nailing the expressions to the names I had in mind.
