We didn't always agree on things, but in our brief time together i'd say we were friends. Very sad to hear of his passing, i hope you are all handling this okay.

Develop Your Story / [Marathon Workshop] SlamJam's "The witch Rox"
« on: January 11, 2018, 11:06:41 AM »
So this is the portfolio page where i will update each chapter of "Rox" each week. The title above is a working title. Here's the synopsis.


In a land where unimaginable wonders are part of daily life, a seed of dissent grows. A once unified country begins to fracture under the weight of it's oppressive society. In the midst of this, a young orphan has the power to change the world. Where power creates strength, in Rox it yields courage. Yet courage can only take a person so far, as the pillars of Guardian city are not so easily shaken.  Many have tried before her, and Guardian City continues to grow from the sacrifices of the good. Can Rox truly change the world, or fall to the secrets trapped deep within the heart of the city?

Chapter 1 due date - 19/01/17, words 1000

So in the discord today, Devola was doing 30-40 minute concept sketches with color. I'm dumb, he took longer than that... He's still *censored*ing insane, and it doesnt change the fact i cant do anythin gud in 30 minutes. I tried my best to do it but he's just so fast.

Here's a page of eye studies;

Off topic, but I've been noticing the spoiler tag being used to hide photos a lot. Is that something I should be doing as well?

I love seeing the range of facial structures changing with the angles that you have. Seeing the hand sketches made me cringe for when I have to start doing those as well. xD

I only started doing it because my net sucks, so it means if i click on my gallery there's not patches of crap waiting to download. Not super necessary.
Also just looks a bit cleaner imo

ive actually never heard of doing color before value? By donig grey first, theres much less to worry about (such as color temperature or the fact that a red on the same position in the color square will be naturally darker than a yellow in the same place). Value is easier to work with alone. So, if i were to do a portrait using value only, all i really need to worry about is light and dark.

With color, i need to think about this, and the color temperatures of the face. IE, Red's are in the cheeks and nose area, blue's in the jaw and yellow's in the forehead. Similarly, i dont have to think about the color of the light, and how that effects it, nor how the surrounding color interacts with everything.

Again, good to see you're back here Hawkeye! :)

I've actually been doing some style studies myself, so i think i can help out more with trying to capture what another artist is doing. Specifically, you need to pay attention to these 3 things;

1) What shape language does this artist use - You've thought about this a little, but it goes much further than just the shape of the hair. You've treat the shadows on the hair as squiggly lines, rather than clear distinct shapes. Look here -> https://i.imgur.com/HWWNZqM.jpg

2) What colors does this artist use, and how do they relate to eachother? The main things here, are to look at the local color the artists uses for each section, and figure out what they're doing when the make things lighter or darker. So, this is a lazy example of how the color would be picked; for shadows they drop down 15-20% in darkness, then saturate. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/399854109504831492/399854207768854539/unknown.png On the right side is yours, i chose your base color and below darkened then saturated. Above the base color is your original shadow color, which you darkened slightly and desaturated. Try to examine this for every color you see, the skin, the eyes, the hair, etc. It'll help with achieving dat feel.

3) What transitions/rendering style is this artist using? Look at the edges of shadows to figure this out. On the hair, the shadow closest to the top of the head is a hard edge, and then has a soft edge/fade on the lower half. On the skin, it's more traditional cell shading with a hard edge shadow. This ones kinda self explanatory.

I've been doing this sorta stuff in my own studies of some artists, here's a greyscale example; https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/357324044472811530/398112603479605248/unknown.png , wasnt going for complete replication, just generally was figuring out his render style. I didnt super successfully pull this off, but i did learn he sometimes drops a shadow, then fills it in the center with his base tone, which is how he partially achieves that look. (Look at his eyebrows to see what i mean).

I hope this helps you :)
