Multiply layers are just friggin' awesome for determining how coloured illumination works on various local hues. Just decided to give it a test run after realizing my scanner isn't big enough to scan my character rotation anyways. Consistent lighting on various materials is the focus for this one.
My anatomy needs a ton of work but hopefully I can go to extra life drawing everyday soon.
This is a WIP though it would be a miracle if I find a way to work on this in preparation for the dreaded Week 5.
EDIT1: Quick hair touch-up; silhouette reminded me of an afro... EDIT2: Completely redid the drawing portion and rendered it again. Couldn't believe how stiff it looked.

Thanks to this thread, I have been practicing trying to quicken my painting process. Read it for more info. Needless to say, it worked. This only took 4 hours as opposed to my "Bad Day at Work" which took more than 15 hours.
I wish my drawing was better though. I spent most of my time fixing my damn drawing. Gonna have to fix that back leg as well.The 4 icons are placeholders since I'm not sure what I'm going to put in them yet. Excuses excuses excuses!
I still have a long way to go to make things perfect on the first try like Jason Chan does.
This is for Tuesday's Digital Tools assignment. I'm going to waste a ton of ink printing this one!
EDIT: Fixed perspective. EDIT2: Fixed back leg. EDIT3: Decided to use a colour balance layer only because of a fatal mistake that ruined the colours. It looks kinda oversaturated on this computer but pretty okay on the school ones. Hmmm...

Painting done with a mouse during Tuesday's digital tools class. I swear I was listening in class! Hopefully it looks like who I intended it to be.

Rendering the crap out of something is such a great time waster. I'm completely fresh out of new ideas, though. I'm just too excited for Sheridan.
Didn't turn out that bad considering I pulled the colours out of my ass. I'm not liking the armour though; looks like if Claymore was given a dose of marijuana.
EDIT: 1 am, tired as hell, but damn, the armour annoyed me far too much for me to sleep. Improved it by a little.

Recently watched Zhang Lu's Caucasian Female Portraits and I am amazed of how subtle values can transition in order to create form. These were done in around 1 hour each with referencing and studies from Zhang Lu's portraits and other photos. The second picture is just me screwing around with characters I saw at Fan Expo to make studying more exciting than it is. Insane how a half value difference can mean so much.
