Art illustration draw step by step online

Create illustration from portrait drawing.  Art illustration draw step by step online. This post is pretty much continue from the previous posted Portrait study turns into quick illustration. In these steps, I just start assigning colors onto the existing values then slow paint them over the sketch as I see fits without changing much of the values.
Then I added or changed the hand that holds an apple, and the other hand to hold an ear-bud. Then I thought it would modernize the piece and it will be a nice contrast to the lithograph painting style I am trying to accomplish.
Then I slightly change some values on her face and her hair and the surrounding area because I thought it was a little too dark comparative to the environment.
I just have to look at the over all image and see it that would fit.
On the final stage, I decided to do the outline to emphasis the old school lithograph style to finish it off. Just hoping it will work out. :)

If you are new to this blog, just be patient and browse around the blog. Thumbnails on top and the topics along the side of the far right column. But there are some of the video I would recommend for basic lessons on how to draw and paint portrait and facial structure.

Portrait study turn into quick illustration

How to draw portrait with charcoal.  Portrait study turn into quick illustration. I was doing some portrait study and do step by step for the blog because I had no idea what to do at the moment. Yes, lack of inspiration happens from time to time especially when you leave you pencil and pen for a while. So I was sketching until it almost complete then I looked at it and I was like...um I could actually turn it into something else.
So first idea I had was I could put really dark over coat on her and then...a knife in her hand. I can make her an assassin! But then I thought I always do that let's change the course a bit this time. Something I don't usually do.
Then I had an idea of a garden surrounded her present and... while I was painting a camouflage or silhouette of tree branches and bushes I got an idea. Snake came to my mind. Then I totally get in the feeling of the piece. Eden, snake, apple and eventually the word "seduction" in the conclusion.
Anyway, here are the step by step for the work in process and the final piece I have so far. Still have to paint for a few more sessions.

Nude female figure recline quick color sketch study

Painting reclining female figure. Here are step by step of my figure study nude reclining lady. Just want to practice more figure and facial structure and hair on this one. Lots of time I spend on her hair and still not to the point that I want from the painting yet. I still have some work to paint more hair and such to get a good result.
In my opinion, painting hair is the same as painting any object from light using light and shadow as guideline, but it slightly trickier because you better off using some sort of texture to refine it along with regular brush, same as in oil painting. Hair is one of the more difficult subject to pull of successfully. But once I heard some master said one should keep it simple like the rest of the painting and not to complicate it. Im still trying to figure out what that means.
In this post studying values and some experimenting on monochrome toward adding some more colors after I define the values as you can see in the step by step images process.
Still a lot more painting to be done.

Also you can also watch these tutorials for learning how to render face (for basic structure from start to finish) Character Design Face Male Merchant Character, Character design sketch villain or Drawing Male Face Swordman and Learn how to draw and paint face. They might be what you are looking for.

For beginers and basic lesson on how to constructed (draw) a face. Then these tutorial will guild you to a basic how to: How to draw lesson girl face, How to draw person head basic and Draw and render human head with different light sources. (These two are a little more basic). And a little more along the traditional art study, go watch How to draw lesson girl face, How to draw person head basic. And digital painting tutorial rogue samurai female. As for the face or head (women, female) Draw girl's face how to lesson video and step by step and learn how to draw face, woman. Enjoy the video tutorials.
More painting tutorials, the new and update of the late 2010 tutorial on female figures, most of these are painting step by step tutorials, some include video tutorials.  First for figure study, you can go take a look at female model sheet or female figure study woman body proportion sheet.  Then there is a speedpainting figure study back which I pretty much focus on looseness control and brush strokes.  Also if you like comics style pin up painting, check out Emma Frost X-men first class and 2011 is year of the rabbit.  Both are not really focus on brush work, rather smooth rendering of the skin itself.  And Black Rock Shooter color sketch work is a really stylize that is similar to that of Anime or stylize Manga, but not typical.

Draw realistic face tutorial front view

Draw realistic face tutorial front view. This post is a portrait study I did using Wacom tablet to practice portrait drawing for digital art. In this one, I am trying to use just default round hard and soft in Photoshop, not using any fancy or custom brushes just to see if I can carry it to the end. Most of you ask, what kind of brush do I use. I used a lot of brushes, but that's not the point. Most of the tutorials here that I made, I am trying to bring the principle to the audiences.
Foundation in art practice is the most important things one could learn. Because once you understand the principle like lines (correct drawing), shapes, and values (gradient, tones) along with understanding soft and hard edges. Most importantly how light effect your subject, you can carry all the knowledge across the medium. Digital or tradition is does not really matter, they are just tool we use to transfer our vision onto paper, canvas, computer to ultimately communicate with audiences
If you understand the principle of how all the terms I am talking about above react and utilize them efficiently then you can at your best ability transform your thought onto any medium you wish.
Portrait study is a great way to practice, it never gets old. Artist can always get better as he or she practice more with observation and determine to gain knowledge or insight to achieve the best possible outcome of the piece. Drawing people is one of the most difficult thing for any artist. Especially when you want it to look certain way and have different lighting, mood or even expression from the subject.

Anyway, here is another female portrait study front view.
This one I only use default round brush soft and hard in Photoshop: =)

Below are step by step draw and render portrait tutorial

drawing portrait tutorial front

1) I start of with the somewhat egg shape but a little angular because I want her to have a strong jaw line. I lay out the flat skin color (desaturated pinkish or egg shell color, any skin tone you prefer) as a base. Then I mark spots for where I would put her eyes. I paint the whole eye sockets because they are part of the face that usually case the strongest shadow, other under the nose and under the upperlip.


NOTE* It's a big jump from Step 1 to Step 2 if you are wondering how to structure the facial feature, go to my previous tutorial how to draw face. Very basic stuff, now the puzzle is solved.


2) At this stage, I add some soft shadow all over her face very soft, then some shadow all the way from under her cheek bone on the side to her shin line to indicate three dimensional object and establish light source direction (light's hitting from the front). Then I went in to draw her eyes outline, eyebrows, nose tip, and lips. Thought these lines are not here to stay, they are there to give me some sort of guideline so that I can accurately put my paint on where I want them to be.


3) Paint as if you sculpt, the reason I put some soft shadow over in the previous stage so that I can pull out the light and give it an illusion of a 3D object. I paint the lighter value of color over the area that the light source would hit. At this stage, don't get caught up in detail, just layout the simple shape and flat color. I put lighter value all along her nose bridge to the tip, her cheek, the area above her upper lips, and her shin (These are the area that will get hit directly by the light source I previously established). Notice that I also add some strong shadow on to both sides of her nose bridge and darken the eye socket a bit to accentuate the form that was given by the light source.


4) Now I am working on her nose tip (Usually where it will get the highlight and strongest shadow). When working on nose try not to think like drawing, think of light and shadow. I usually don't draw nostrils, I just shadow it out or dark it out because most of the time you don't really get to see them if you squint for value (the more practice painting from life you will get the better result than using photo ref) . But on this one just for demonstration purpose I will do them just for the hell of it. Notice I painted in only two value under the nose, I can usually get away with one when painted.


how to draw realistic face
5) Then I am looking for place where I can put darker shadow on her face to make her feature more prominent. Dark line in between her lips, more dark paint around her eye sockets and her eyebrows.



6) Now it's time to tighten things up by finding place to put my darkest value onto the image, under her shin, under her eyebrows (sockets), and some on the side to create sharp edge for the painting. I also bring some light out on her eyes a bit.


7) Tweak and refine the feature here and there, no major value or hue change to tighten up or clean up a little more.

draw realistic face tutorial

8) Now I am lighting up her face a bit more by putting more light value her to her nose tip, above her lips and a bit on her shin.


9) As the face is coming along and look like a face then it's time to bring out some detail and put some highlight on her. At this stage I paint in her irises with highlight, a bit on the tip of her nose and on the edge of her upper lip. These area get hit by the strongest light.


10) Refinement, clean up and finish up...in this case I darken her eye lash (adding shadow underneath) a bit, add some highlight on her lower lips, touching up her nose


11) Adding some hair on her face would be nice, and some highlight to give it dimension.

Speedpainting tutorial Mech robot Gaiking Digital painting process

Speedpainting tutorial Mech robot Gaiking Digital painting process. Here is how to draw and paint speedingpainting study video tutorial and step by step image process.
Well, speedpainting definition, as far as I understand, from the concept art standpoint is usually a study of subject (values and composition mostly) that is done in one sitting (approximately 20-60 mins or could be up to couple hours but not more).

Anyway, I felt inspired yesterday after watching Gaiking Trailer. Didn't even think that 1970s giant robot will ever come to life on silver screen. I really hope it will be well done as a good movie so that we can see more of many giant robots in movies soon in the future. I don't mind Transformer, but really they aren't my favorite. I think the Giant Robot Mecha in the 70s are the most badass and they are the first of their kind. :)

Anyway, if you enjoy this tutorial, there are similar type of video tutorials I have on the site. I recommended the following video Drawing War Machine Ironman 2, Silk Spectre speedpainting tutorial, Digital Painting Tutorial Video Court Lady, and the old How to draw and paint Ironman. You will enjoy the similar process or I hope. :)

『大空魔竜ガイキング』(だいくうまりゅうガイキング)は、1976年(昭和51年)4月1日から1977年(昭和52年)1月27日までフジテレビ系で毎週木曜
本作が初の東映動画オリジナル企画によるロボットアニメとされている。それまでの東映動画のロボットアニメは、漫画家の永井豪と永井の「ダイナミックプロ」から原作提供を受けており、本作でも原作協力という形で参加している。
神谷明、井上真樹夫、山田俊司といった当時の人気声優が多数出演したため、本作のアフレコには女性ファンがドッと押しかけたという。
虫プロダクション系の制作会社マッドハウスから、杉野昭夫、丸山正雄らがスタッフとして参加。東映動画に新風を送り込んだと評価され、後番組の『ジェッターマルス』にも引き続き参加した。

And if you really like Mecha stuff these video tutorials are made especially for those who wants to draw and paint Mecha robot Drawing Mech or Mecha Tutorial (this one show quick sketch and painting mecha, kinda cool. One of my better ones). And this video, Concept tutorial Drawing Giant Mech, also pretty similar to the first one in regard of painting process. Digital drawing tutorial Mech soldier is different approach almost peedpainting like video and somewhat gets different result than usual. Also you can find some more mech or robot tutorials by browsing thumbnails on top of the blog.

These are a few songs I usually listen to when I am working on a Mecha or robot painting design. It has a very aggressive mechanical rhythm sound, but pretty melodic synth. I cannot really explain but they make me immense into the world of unknown easily.
