Here is a portrait of my friend. I kind of rushed it because I planned it to be my last post of the year. I guess I need to practice more on portraits. My next portrait would be a bit better than this one I suppose. Anyways, Happy New Year Everybody! Cheers!
Have a happy hot holidays everybody! I have got this image drawn up on paper since last year. I never had the time to put it up last year so I thought this year would be the right time to compensate my inactivity. Sorry if its a bit sloppy and rough around the edges. I’m still not good at drawing the lower half of a body. lol. Anyways, I will put some W.I.P’s on my next work.
It’s been 5 months since my last post. I’m terribly sorry for that. So many things happened in these past months. My Hard drive gave up on me, school, and Dota2. I’ll complete the 12th excel art when I find the file (It got lost when my hard drive got corrupted T_T). I’ll probably post one or more works but it will take longer though because of school. I think the contours on the pumpkin head is a bit shallow. It was hard to put the candle light effect inside the shape. I couldn’t find a decent tombstone design so I just put up what came in my head and just drew it. Anyway, here it is. My Halloween Post. 😀
Her birthday is nearing! Will I finish it in time? I think I’m done with the the first face. I’m thinking whether to spruce it up more. The left eye is done, but I think it is too dark. I tried to fix it by darkening the right a bit more. What do you guys think?
I also finished the mouth. That part was the hardest for me because of the shading in the tongue and lips. It’s not perfect but that will do. The teeth was also hard because I need to choose the right set of colors to shade it perfectly. I put on orange accent 6 darker 25% and gray and heightened their transparency. I’ll add more shading on the lips if it requires it.
I will soon start on the next face then add hair and then their clothes. My next post will be on the 1st day of March 2013. I hope she’ll like it. :))
Here’s the 2nd Work in Progress of Excel Art 11. I posted this since I won’t post next week because of our Midterm exams. I already colored both faces and started to put on shades. The base color for the skin is R=254, G=245, and B=240(if that would help). The shades I put in there are just lowered versions of the base color and made transparent between 90-99%.
I drawn two versions of the hands. The first was a bit sloppy and it is just one shape. I planned that first because I thought it was easy and I would be able to use less shapes and because if the number of shapes exceed beyond 500, Excel will start to lag 😦 .
The second version is two parts so I could put the eyes on the face and not on the hand. It was easier because you can be sloppy and it will be covered by the object(hand). I drew the shadow of the hand on the face so I can remember which exact place to put the hand back.
They are both still sloppy (and a bit scary) but don’t worry because the excess shading will be covered by hair and clothes soon enough. I also started to draw the shapes of the body so I can get an idea of what to do after I completed the faces. Even after I finish this early, I’ll post the completed version on the 1st day of March. I made this as a birthday present for my friend. I hope you guys can bare with me. 🙂
I’m alive! Just to let guys know that I’m not slacking off, I started to make a draft for my next work. It’s a bit rough and I only started to make out the shape of the face. The one to the left took me about an hour or so just to perfect the shape of her face. The one on the left was rushed and its not perfect yet. I’ll try to tweak it some more. The ones that look like cotton swabs are their heights. I did that to give me a perspective on their heights to make it as accurate as possible. The bending shapes are guidelines to the arms for the left one and the shoulder of the right. I’ll try to flesh the other parts out once I tweaked the shapes of their faces and colored them out. 🙂
ahhh. For my first post this year is a sloth having a vacation. For I will take leave and resume on March. 😦 . I will not be posting anything. Because it is the start of my college’s Midterm and Finals. I will be very busy and not have the time to draw anything. After this school years term. I will resume my regular schedule on my posts. Anyways, Happy New YearEveryone! Have a good one!
