I’m in Rome and having trouble sleeping. Figured I could use the time for some much needed practice. As it goes I usually draw a pin up to test my abilities. I’ve always rationalized it that people tend to have an opinion one way or another about the female form… today I really wasn’t in the mood. It’s been a subject that I’ve used as a measuring stick but now find myself doing less and less of them. Now children/babies, THAT’s something to test your prowess with a pen! One mistake and you could age them anywhere from 30-90+!!! Its all about being subtle. Well… I’m nice and sleep now that I’ve written this post. Good night everyone.
Something I’ve been meaning to post and now that me and the class are doing color theory seems like a perfect time. Sorry I forgot where on tumblr I got this. Post me back and I’ll give you the credit you deserve. Also http://paletton.com is an amazing resource for making new random pallets.
wakefree asked: Did you get permission from Capcom to feature Chun-Li in your artbook? And if not, are you pulling in any profit from the artbook? If yes, well... then I have two words for you: "Copyright infringement."
It’s not that cut and dry.
There are millions of doujins, artbooks, and fanart prints out there featuring other’s characters that are sold for profit. Artists make money off of commissioned licensed characters. A lot of it falls under fair use (transformative work), since the purpose of my sketchbook is an exploration of my art and style for scholarly review, not to financially or legally threaten or harm Capcom (which it isn’t; note that I also do work directly for Capcom sometimes) or trace existing licensed art. Granted, most of the content in my book is full of original stuff. But I state in the book that all characters and likenesses belong to their rightful owners.
Part two of my blog where I explain the writing process for my Little Nemo comic, which I produced for the Dream Another Dream Kickstarter project (which, as of my writing this, has a week left to go).
In the previous part, I detailed the four criteria I needed to adhere to if I was going…
Kind of a little random (probably incorrect) guide to basic sorts of shading-
I also forgot flat shading which is no shading or highlighting at all
But here’s something to ah… look at I guess.
More for my class. Great you guys just teach everything and I’ll collect the pay and high fives.
