Trying to pick a good composition for my next artwork. I'm happy with my recent work, but it didn't got me as much feedback I'd hoped to be honest. I'll need something a bit more dramatic. 
Working on a Lunara fanart. I'm not on my usual computer so the process is a bit complicated. 
Male portrait study
Used the stock reference from :iconphelandavion:

I wanted to try the color technique used by :iconandantonius: in the glorious speed painting videos he posted on YT. It was interesting and quite different from my previous "naïve" approach. As with the other studies, it doesn't mean much about my raw drawing skills but it's a shading/painting exercise.
I've mentioned my gallery in the latest journal entry, and how I feel it ought be more curated. Of course it plays an important role, because it shows how much my art is still a work in progress, with its uneven bumps of quality and large lumps of inexperienced errors. But it goes further than just deviations. 
After an initial rush to post my then available backlog of art, I've been distantly engaged on the site itself and its community. I've got not that much raw, training material that wasn't published, and the prospect of submitting deviations has been a prime motivator for me to do several hours worth pieces. But the response has always felt unfair, though of course it's not. The subject was the most important factor, with fanart being the most popular, followed mostly by landcapes. Thus characters - flawed - I've poured sometimes quite a lot of work into have only given me very mixed feedback, but I shouldn't have expected more, as thousands of more experienced artists do compete for appreciation. And I'm taking shortcuts toward doing complete pieces instead of the many sketches that would be useful beforehand.

Truth is I've not done much to integrate myself more into the DA crowd. I fav deviations quite often and leave comments there and there, but I've never entered any forum discussion, and exchanged more broadly. As I change very often the subject of my illustrations, and can't really feature a dinstinct style either, there is no natural way to feel part of a group. I end up experiencing alone the thrill or disappointment following a new submission. In some case, after pouring time into work that could have needed more early critique, I end up giving up drawing for streches of time. Hence the orbit title, I may be one of those erratic planetoïds wandering sometime close, and sometimes very far from the artistic sun. I hope the image is not too self indugent ^ ^

I do this on my free time, and what inspires/motivates me changes a lot. Often when I want to tackle some defined theme, I only make a couple illustrations centered on it in the course of a month, then forget about aftewards (Just consider my couple hollow knight artworks for instance). This makes it less interesting for would be followers interested in longer series, more "consistent" production. This is not likely to change, as I only wish to improve on the whole, rather than focus on a niche. I don't even do much work on my characters because I'm unable to do them justice. 

That's why I'd like to thank a lot the few people who exchange with me, your feedback and encouragement are really appreciated. Hug  
Hope this didn't sound whiny or moody, I'm not used to share much on the platform :p

Merci pour le fav ^^

Thank you for the favs! :) I like a lot what you do
Uriak Featured By Owner May 15, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Merci ! Ta démarche est assez intéressante, je me demande quelle est la proportion rendu 3d et 2d. Certains artistes font des modèles 3d pour avoir toute la base d'une structure (véhicule, bâtiment) avant de peindre dessus.

Merci! :) Mon image final c'est vraiment le résultat du rendu, j'ai ensuite éclairci l'image dans Gimp et j'ai ajouté les rayons de lumière. En fait, je me suis intéressée à la 3D parce que je ne suis vraiment pas forte en dessin/peinture et que j'avais quand même envie de faire des images ^_^ donc je n'avais pas pensé que des gens peignaient sur les rendus, mais c'est intéressant comme méthode!
Je te met l'image que l'ordinateur a calculé:
 <da:thumb id="1531947191257961" format="200H">
Elle est vraiment très sombre, c'est la première fois que je dois autant changer la lumière après le rendu, c'est parce que j'ai utilisé une option de volume qui permet de donner une atmosphère à l'image.

Et merci beaucoup de m'avoir ajouté à ta deviantWatch!

De rien ^^

Ce dont je parlais c'était plutôt des compositions assez simplifiées, ou la 3 permet d'avoir les silhouettes générales, les plans et leurs éclairages, les ombres portées. Là dessus les artistes peignent en se servant de cette référence, ajoutant les détails, textures, et formes secondaires. En général les effets atmosphériques arrivent à ce stade, mais tu te sers suffisamment bien de tes outils de rendu pour y faire cette étape :)

Uriak Featured By Owner May 14, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Uriak Featured By Owner May 8, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
de rien ^^ Ce dessin est super détaillé mais j'aurais bien imaginé ton héroïne détourée sur un fond plus sombre, là elle se noie un peu enfin c'est peut-être l'effet voulu !
