GameArt: Material Study

Time to put some life on this blog again. For those interested, I’m mostly active on my DeviantArt, hence the lack of posts here. http://white-starcloud.deviantart.com/   You can also find links to some other social media websites I use in the “About me” tab! 🙂

One of the tasks for Game Art we received this year is the famous “Materials study”. A basic yet, in my opinion, very fun digital drawing practise. Some of these (the jello one actually) were a bit of a challenge but nonetheless I feel quite proud of the results. I usually very rarely use references when drawing, so I admit I went a bit free-style on some of these instead of closely observing the real thing.  For the jello one I had to look up a small tutorial, because it just wouldn’t work out the way I wanted it to. The ‘Old window’ one looks a bit more like a metal ball instead of glass, but I blame that on the reference picture I used (which did indeed have that quite dark, blurry look). The skin & moss ones are probably my favourites out of the set. As much as I enjoy digital art, I mostly do traditional artworks so it might be interesting to someday try doing these in watercolours if I find some time. 🙂
