Febuary photo Study by IggyTek Febuary photo Study by IggyTek
the photo i studied belongs to Natalie Addams [link]

ive learnt metric shit tonnes from this study, i started this study as a step to break from that chunky painterly anime pit ive been drowning in for the past 2 years to a more realistic style i always wanted but never knew how to pull off. But after finding the works of NOXIZMAD ive found a benchmark to aim for.

Stuff i learnt

color mixing from sliders and observation of shapes.

what brushes i ACUALLY NEED! deleted at least 300
on another note CUSTOM BRUSHES DONT MAKE YOR CRAZY GOOD AT ART!

how to hide burshstrokes, buliding up textures

this may sound retarded but UNDERSTANDING DIFFERENT SURFACES NEED DIFFERENT BRUSHES and MARK-MAKING, alot of dudes use the same bursh and the same mark-making aprroach to different objects. This makes your work muddy and undefined.

this is a big one....> when you start a study take the picture your studying copy it then open the copy and enlarge it by 2 or 300% fill it with a background color then begin so you dont get any issues with skewed shapes and croping.

i found this out from Alex negra after i already started which explaned the skewed proportions, its still a bit skewed but the damage is done so i had to finish it anyway.

SPECIAL THANKS TO THE CRIMSON DAGGERS (im a proud member)

Nice one man, remember seeing you work on this a couple weeks back - must have put a lot of time into it which is great man! Your improving a lot, gonna be like Alex if you can keep it up :p Also glad to hear the RSI has cleared up, remember that sometimes procrastination is good. :)

Still needing to get back on the studies myself but doesn't look like it's gonna be till summer again, trying to concentrate 100% on my disney brief at the moment, gotta take priority.
