I enjoy getting likes. It gives me fleeting motivation. There's so much stigma around depending on likes for even the slightest bit of satisfaction, but I cannot deny that it's there. I feel terrible being a like whore.

This is just a euphemism for procrastination because you're scared to draw. That's why you're here asking for references instead of actually drawing.

I literally draw for a hobby, I'm bored an wanna draw but have no good ideas if I was scared to draw I wouldn't do it for fun. I don't know who shit in your cheerios today, but I just can't find up any good ideas and its good to hear some different ideas. It's nothing more than that.

Your premise that the value range is too wide is completely wrong. With reflective, shining metal, the values can freely go anywhere. The crucial part is having the knowledge on how to place them, which is what OP lacks first and foremost. You've changed the metal texture completely into something more resembling slightly damp stone, and that's definitely not the answer. The first and most important thing OP needs to do right now is study up on lighting and form, which is the best advice I can give him right now. Design wise, it is possible to raise the contrast without turning the blue all gaudy like that too. I can go on about the design aspect more, but I'm tired right now.

Here's a pic of some completely random knight concept art I grabbed from Google Images to illustrate some of my points.

Hmm. Can't be bothered with what other people said but I'll give my lazy response!

My best tip would be to look at things as they are. The metal is just another surface that reflects things according to its attributes. My suggestion is: Take a random scene from google and paint it from the point of view of the armor. Like what would this plate see? then just dim it down and it'll look like you knew what you were doing. The more matte it is, the more you want to mix the local diffuse color to your image... Tere are tons of ways to utilize this shit... Study 3d. Do drugs. I don't care!

Like, I just took this random painting and thought about how it would reflect to my eyes from that armor... If you want to make it more worn you can just dim it down or put some more scratches on there.

Remember that everything in our reality works with the same rules so basically every material is the same. You just decide the attributes...

>> No.3721676

Oh and sorry if I'm being too proactive here but Sinix made a pretty good video about shit like this about 4658 years ago.


You're asking a good question because every material works like a mirror. there are just differen levels of specularity and shit...

>> No.3721695

My point was that OP has too much extreme value and almost no midtones, even you own picture agrees with me, color pick it and you'll see most of of it ranges in the values of 30-70% while OPs is 90-100% or 0-10%

>any good resources that solidified your understanding and process of rendering?

It's been years but I still haven't grasped the proper concept of rendering.

>How to properly move the cursor on the color panel going from the lightest to darkest color value?
>Does the midtone contain more chroma than direct light and shadow?
>Is the light generally more saturated than the shadow part? (been studying chinks and they often make light very desaturated but keep the shadows very high chroma)
>Also temperature shifts are literally eating my ass, I'm probably moving the hue scale in the wrong direction for some colors, aka wanting to make blue a bit cooler by pushing it down to the greens.

Mullins lectures were really useful, but I don't have the last couple parts. Help

I will Sumarize Watts Atelier Head Phase 1 and 2.

1.-Draw the loomis head (look proko for free)
2.-Draw a skull front view, 3/4 and profile
3.-Memorise a simple azaro had 3/4, front view and profile
4.-Memorize the Reily method
5.-Memorize The azaro had

He tries you to buy models of the skull, an azaro, from the azaro head guy but you can find 3d models for free on the internet.

There I saved you $100 bucks a month. You don't even need to watch the videos as Jeff just draws without giving any extra info.

I don't doubt other courses I didn't see are good. but yeah. I still don't get why people pay him that much.

I don't need a course though. You're unironically correct. If you can't look at life and figure out how to draw it, you're probably just not very intelligent.

think of a face as a mountain. sculpt the face like it's a kind of strange, bumpy architecture.

practice drawing hands by drawing your own hand like a hundred times from different angles. always try to imagine "looking through" your hand, like looking through your fingers to the side of the hand that you can't see. think 3D, but translate 2D. take a good look at shadows, folds, wrinkles, muscles.

I haven't learned to draw by anyone I just did it myself pretty much and I did not learn shit from art college because they did not teach us anything and just told us to copy some art period and to make prints or whatever clayshit but not actually tell us how to make it.
