Viper sketches

Some Street Fighter's Viper fanarts I just found. Although done few months back, when SFIV came out. Very quick pencil sketches, just for fun :)

Making of a face?

Just a small thingy I wanted to post few months ago. An animated gif showing the making of the face. Some things you can notice: at the end, when touching up the whole thing, I'm usually adjusting contrast and blocking in some bold shapes of colours. In this case it was blue on her cheeks (second light source) and some details in warm tones so the face seems more vivid. I do it, honestly, because when detailing I often lose the balance of colours, so whatever I had in mind at the beginning is usually lost at this point, and I have to fix it later anyway. I also repainted her eyes a few times, as at first the whole piece was supposed to be monochrome, but in the end I put more colour everywhere, so needed to adjust the face as well. Nothing that special but looks fun, I think :)


Final image still not finished. Oh, and this is not an animation, just WIP screenshots put together in one file, so don't tell me it looks like some frames are missing (I wouldn't write it if I didn't actually have people asking this before).

Diploma work.

I actually have quite a lot to post. I just don't know where it is. Really. But anyway, I promised to some people on DA I'll show some of my diploma works. So, here it is. A photo showing how it finally looked, with all big posters printed and a bonus photo of some traditional (pencil) sketches which served as the appendix for the design work. It looks kind of out of proportion because of the camera's wide angle. Except for the places where it just IS out of proportions of course (can you tell I'm not satisfied with these?). But then again I only had around 5 nights to finish all of them, and had to draw really quick. Had no time for any corrections back then and I don't like it enough to do anything with it now, except maybe taking it to the basement when I stop feeling lazy.

For some of these (bottom 3, starting from the right) I based poses on DA stock. Sorry, forgot which, but I'm not going to re-post these anywhere and I didn't follow it closely anyway. Rest was drawn from live models.

Now, time to search for some more interesting stuff :)
