Digi-painting practice

Decided to practice digi-painting with reference and this is zee rezuuult! :) 

Got to get better on it though. :P hehe 

As what Linguini would say: "Let's do this thing!" :)

I finally found you

Recently watched the lovely bittersweet "Millennium Actress" and got inspired by it so I made some thumbnail studies :)

More Value Thumbnail studies

Remember the last post? I wasn't too happy with one value thumbnail study? So I made three more! :)

***Note: The 1st value thumbnail is on the top left! :P

I played and experimented on the values so I can get the effect or mood I wanted for this illustration! :)

I even tried to experiment with composition and spaces. Like doing a frame within a frame but I think it didn't work well because there were so many things going inside the frame) Hehe ohwell, it's an experiment so it's alright!

I'll try to do some more or do you guys think this is okay? :) 

Let me know what you think! :)

Update: The Alhambra Challenge

Update: The Alhambra Challenge 

So, I tried doing a value thumbnail and with that help, I got into color thumb (which is the one you can see at the rightmost). I wanted to practice/explore/experiment with colors that could be suited with the value thumbnail that I made. Then tried some color comp (which is the one on the bottom). 

Though I feel there is something missing. I don't know quite sure what it is but I think its something to do with what mood I want to achieve or something. :P hehe So I figured to make some more value thumbnails. 

Bare with me, I am not so good with coloring, or digi-paint for that matter. I am not good with painting straight away as some artist are more comfortable. :P hehe I think I need to do some thumbnail-ing first before going into it (from value to color). So now, I am doing some self-studying when it comes to this kind of things. :P Pretty much this is one of the things I struggle after perspective but I am eager to learn and get better. :)

Hopefully as time passes I do. :) will update more ones I get the hang of it! :)

Update: Triple Time with Triple WIPS

The Alhambra Challenge: Doing my values and next will be my color comping. Been really researching and self study digi-painting. Getting some tips from Elioli sistersTy Carter and Griselda Sastrawinata. (Check them also out! :) They have great work and give some great tips as well!)

The Moroccan Pan A to B bg interior Challenge: I am almost done with my rough. Off to designing the walls and finally do the final outline.

Triple Time with Triple WIPS Challenge

Double Time  Triple Time with Triple WIPS

Hello Guys! :)

 Just here to place some few other WIPS I am also working on side by side with The Alhambra.
So to sum it all up and to catch on it: 

I am currently doing:

1) The Alhambra Challenge- Now I am working on the Final look
2) The Moroccan Pan A to B bg interior Challenge- In the process of thumbnail-ing and will soon choose which one to work on as the design. Then go straight into rough sketch.
3) The Night Life in the streets of Japan Challenge- Doing the Rough Sketch.

REASONS for doing this Triple Time with Triple WIPS Challenge:

-To keep on practicing perspective, layout-ing using references I take interest on. 

-To find and discover mistakes, problems I might encounter and to work on as soon as this early in my life than having them on the job which will cause dilemma in my work, and the production. (Though I am not saying I will be perfect by then. :P I know I'll encounter mistakes and problems but at least lessen them.) 

-To create an illustration with proper BG, which is the technical aspect of perspective.

-To keep on practicing and to keep getting used to loads of workload. Especially my goal is to get into the Animation Industry which demands a lot of work. So, to be prepared, to be ready, to not get too comfortable and to not let my guards down if workload lessens.    

Wish me luck guys! Got lots to do! Got loads to improve on! Got tons to learn! :)
