Movie study

Another movie study :) think its from Excalibur? correct me if I am wrong. Mixing it up with studies between stuff is always fun. And its a good way to figure out what you need to focus on more. Been trying to time myself to things lately, for example put 1-2 hours to only do sketches or anatomy. Otherwise I find it easy to loose time on other things. Got a timer on the desk so it feels kinda good to know where the time went hehe :)

Take care for now!

Relaxing with some studies :)

(Click to view larger version)

Heyoo, sharing some sketchy studies. I like to do movie studies as warmups, they are really fun to do and I like to think that I learn some atmospheric lightning. All of them are from the the X-files series :) I've been reliving it, saw it on old vhs tapes when I was little. The intro scared the sheit out of me then, not so much anymore hehe ( just a little ). One of my favorite series!

Then a study of a fireball, used an image of a regular fire as reference. Fun but tricky to get it right. Then some lightning, found a good tutorial on the web and thought I would give it a go. Might be tricky to implement in a painting but might be useful some day, Here is the link: http://www.tripwiremagazine.com/2011/04/photoshop-tutorial-how-to-create-a-lightning.html

Take care!

Life study nr 14

Life study of an stone statue. Life studies are tricky but fun, worked on this for a while every morning so the light setup would match. A good way to get up somewhat early hehe. I now know we have to get more statues, saw a cool gigantic buddah head in the stores. That and some skull replicas is on my wanted list :). 

Pretty good cover of Ace of spades haha my gf hates banjos but I love it! Take care everyone!
