Soldier chick wip2

I drew more today and now my hand feels numb. There are so many details to do, especially on the ammunition that I don't feel like drawing any more. Hands are tricky too, because I cannot figure out the colours. And they look big. I have to resize them. The hair also evolved and this way, I think, she looks more dynamic.

It's time to start thinking about the title for this piece. Because if I don't do this now, I will end up with a shitty title again.

Another wip - a soldier chick

It seems that I will post WIPs here only , but this time not because I don't have anything to post, but I wanted to show what I'm working on :D
I had an idea to picture a badass chick, who happens to be a soldier. I want it to be dark and maybe I'll add some blood on her hands or wherever. I didn't have much problems with the face, and now she looks like Michelle Rodriquez combined with Eliza Dushku. Most likely I'll work on her face more XD
I'm happy about anatomy, only her boob looks weird, but I didn't work on her body a lot yet. Again, I focused only on her face.
Behind, mammatus clouds, but I will have to bring some twist to it, because as a reference I'm using a picture that can be found on google.
I also have to do something with her knife. I'm sure soldiers don't use an ordinary knife like I did in a reference XD.

Clouds, eh?

It seems that my art life is a constant art block. I want to develop my skills but either I get frustrated or I have no time (all I am supposed to do is studying. when I have exams and I draw, I feel guilty). Thus, I'm working on one piece for more than two months. To make it worse, I don't concentrate only on one picture but few of them. On the one hand it's a good thing because as far as I go I have a control over all of pics and can enhance them while discovering new techniques or tricks. But when I want to have something finally done, I can't coz all drawings aren't finished. And then I end up whining about it all again.

The painting you can see in this post isn't finished (what a surprise) and I've been changing the scenery so many times for this chick. Finally decided on clouds. Later on I was thinking, maybe clouds will be a reoccurring motive in my works, coz they're so pretty and it's fun painting them. I think I have a problem with my abilities to plan a painting. If only I had a clear image in my head, an aim I am heading, it would be so much easier to finish something within short period of time. Like... a week, perhaps.

Okay, gotta go studying. Later I will write more what bugs me XD
Whoever reads it, have a nice day!

Still not finished...

First time in my artificial experience I don't rush with finishing the painting. I enjoy painting every part of the picture and it makes me proud of myself. Maybe I spend too much time on this piece... Who knows. But I feel it will start a new phase in my art. This little sneek peak looks better when I improved contrast. I still can't pull out such saturated and vivid colour as I'd like to.
The humming bird was painted by me a while back when I was working on another painting. I never finished it because I got irritated. I remember working few hours straight and all of a sudden photoshop froze and I lost everything I worked on. That's really discouraging.
I still don't have any title for this lady... Maybe I'll make it simple and call her Miss or Lady Poppy XD
Lately I discovered a great radio station on net, it makes my work even more pleasurable XD

Of course, I had to start another account, like I didn't have enough of them XD But this one will be my art blog. I will whine and excite about my art, because I don't feel like I have a proper place for that.
Currently I am working on my patience and all I do is staring at awesome pictures that inspire me and then try not to get annoyed by how slowly I draw. I know I shouldn't stress myself about such detail, especially when the results are so much better when I'm relaxed and precise. But there is always a moment drawing one piece when I have enough of drawing. I'm bored with how it looks and then I want to abandon this and start something new. That's why I fail. I can't even count out how many paintings I have abandoned because I couldn't focus on one idea any more. Also, I love draw faces and I only focus on this particular area. When I'm done I lose my interest in everything else. The picture is not finished thus I can't even show it off, because eventhough face looks brilliantly, the rest is a crap.
Soon Chrismas = holidays. I will be able to focus on a painting I currently work on. I'm content so far how it goes. I try not to get bored and looking at inspirational pictures really help. Also, when it's finished I will take care of my blog's layout too. If I manage that is, I never liked playing around with layouts, I never know what to do... XD
Alright, that's all for now :D
