Sketchclub Adventures: May -June 2013

Joined a sketch club in my area to socialize and improve myself. It was a rocky start, but I'm slowly getting better and faster! Sometimes I'll draw people on the train, too, but I do my best to be discreet no matte where or who I sketch. ^_^

Master Copy - Study of Mucha's Lefevre-Utile

It was a belated decision, but I finally signed up for a traditional painting class. As an artist, it is absurd that I never learned how to use real paint. I feel that I suffered being only a digital painter, although it's that skill that is making this class a little bit easier for me in terms of knowledge in color, composition and anatomy.

In the painting class I'm taking, we were allowed to choose a master painter to copy. I decided to pick Alphonse Mucha's Lefevre Utile (1903). I loved everything about this piece, from the beauty of his model, Sarah Bernhardt, to the details and rich color of the fabrics.

Today is the last day we are working on the master copy, but once it dries I plan on taking it home to finish. As a beginner in traditional paints, the amount of detail was overwhelming so I had to pick what was most important to work on.

This is purely for educational purposes, to study and improve my skills as an artist.

Monster Challenge - Slime Woman update

To sag, or not to sag? I feel like this one is almost done; I just need to tweak the details and she'll be goop to go.

Monster Challenge - Slime Man update

Update on the slime man. Refined the colors, added some bubbles and some slime residue on the floor. If you like it, please let me know! Feedback is always welcome.

Monster Challenge - Slime Woman Update

Decided it would be more interesting to flip the picture and have her oozing off of a wall. Also changed the color from red to a shade of purplish pink. Now I just need to figure out what to do with her other arm. :/
