Let's Ref

60 minute sketch from a screencap. I made a few mistakes made in the set up, one being the canvas ratio. Next time I'll make sure its the same as the capture.
Not too happy with this one... long neck, screwy nose, under saturated background. I'll try a few more of these though.

And one 90 min sketch I forgot to post. Ref'd from some fashion magazine.

Speed paints

It seems that if I work on anything for more than 2 hours I get fed up and even start disliking it. Gotta learn to be patient somehow. Anyway, here's some 90min sketches.

Might finish this gal later, placeholder hair just looks awful.

Invincible, refed from a googled 3D sculpt of him.

The joker's in that suit.

Bad Habits?

Don't you hate it when you notice odd things about your work. I could say this is just my style but since I didn't notice it before now, I'd say it's a bad habit :/

One bent leg, one straight leg:

I also realised I can't do those painterly radial renders. You know, the kind of ones that are sharp at the focus points and blur into a lovely undefined mess at the edges. It just looks plain unfinished when I try, drawing attention to the unworked parts. It may come from working the details too soon and too tightly or perhaps a more painterly brush is needed. I've seen artists use the blur tool but that's cheating right? lol

(The red is where is shouldn't be focusing)

Anyway, these things don't bother me too much but I thought I'd share none the less.

Paint Battle

I really like digital painting but I always feel awkward the moment the underlying sketch disappears, like the energy is being killed or whatever. Maybe my love for line art and inks clouding my judgement. Anyway, I've noticed having reference of paintings modern or classic are helping me out a lot lately, it's like the visualisation battle is taken care of and I'm free to play around with the concept.

Enough of my rambling, here are some wips and junk.
