Its been a little bit since I've posted some art. So I have a few backlogged! I've been a little obsessed with portraits of late, so a good chunk of them are in a portrait style. I've been really studying the works of the great cover artist J Scott Campbell as I find the way he does character absolutely engrossing. I've been doing a very manga style for so long that his style seemed like a wonderful progression in my personal art journey. I'm getting there, but as always I have a long way to go.
So there you have it. A little insight as to my artistic journey the last couple of weeks. I feel I'm on the cusp of another "ah ha" moment. It defiantly centers around the face and its many forms. I have dynamic poses mostly down. Sometimes I have to scrap a drawing a few times before I get it where I want it, but thats okay. My real frontier at the moment is making faces that are distinct from each other. I als need to be able to recreate faces as well. If I create a specific character, I need to be able to do that character consistently. Anyway, I will stop boring you and let you get back to your day. I hope you all enjoyed look in on my process so far. If this post gets a good amount of views then I might make posts like this a little bit more frequent.
Let me know what you think. Do you guys want me to go in depth about my self guided trek to becoming an artist?
