Sammy Boy's art

Postby Sammy Boy » Wed Dec 26, 2012 3:33 am

Hi everyone, I spent the past couple of nights making a nebula.

I had a lot of fun and feel I've learned a fair bit about making space art in the process.

If interested, you can check it out here: http://wildspark.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d5pbblt

Cheers! :)

I love nebulas, my youtube channel has a nebula as it's background.

Nebulae give me a feeling of peace when I look at them. :)

Here is my attempt at doing manga fan art:

Thank you! I still haven't learnt shading properly. I mean to do that someday.

Here is my first attempt at doing actual blending: http://wildspark.deviantart.com/art/Sta ... -417092101

Thank you Panda4christ! I really appreciate the comment - there are still lots of techniques (both painting and composition) that I need to learn to make the images really great, your encouragement helps a lot. :)

I would like to gradually draw something from all of the Studio Ghibli films that I have watched, but time and elite skills are both still lacking. :lol:

In trying to draw Laputa, I found that my understanding of clouds and how they reflect / absorb light was superficial, at best. Hopefully some day I will do a better version.

Tried to draw an eye after watching one of those online videos. I think the reflections need more work. :)

Thanks for your comments. I now see that the eyelashes and pupil need more work as well!

Sometimes, when I leave a drawing for a while and come back to it, I see all sorts of mistakes.... :0

If anyone can point me to some tutorials or principles of better quality digital colour / shading / highlighting and/or with "special effects", I am all ears (and many thanks in advance). :)

I recently drew some characters that a friend created some years ago, I haven't coloured it in yet, but thought I'd share it for now (because I tend to be lazy and colouring may be months away)

Thanks for the comments folks!

After several nights, I've finally finished my first digital painting (okay, so I also used my own photo stock as textures, but the under-painting is entirely digital ). I've really enjoyed doing this piece, I felt like I learnt a fair bit in the process.

Hello everyone, I decided to try give myself 30 minutes each night (or less) to draw something ... anything ... in order to keep practising.

Here is my attempt at Kenshiro
