“Two Dimensional”, or at least close to it. (I think that if you wanted to do a relief carving that would be cool, that is if you know how.) A full out 3D object kinda defeats the purpose, besides, if you’re going to do that why not just use blender.
Nice work, Now I gotta get a coloring too. Main thing that’s bothering me is that it looks to dark near the left eye.
Edit: and thanks for the link, I’ll be ripping/sorting through all those for use here too! but whenever you think of one post it. I’ll start sorting them into objects and topics.
Yeah, I knew it wasn’t the best theme ever devised under the sun, that’s why I asked for help from those that know more about what a good topic would be. Also, as Ben said, I thought Suzanne would provide for a good still-life set up as everyone here should have plenty of access to her. but I had hopped that people such as yourself who are more skilled would take it as a challenge to make her in an interesting style and/or put new life into an old subject, which when done well is probably the most impressive, and difficult kinds of art around.
That gives me an idea, what if we split the theme into two parts? Make it look something like this.
A simple object (such as Suzanne)Topic
This would be the slightly more abstract ideas, scenes… all that makes a good theme.
You have the freedom to use one, or both of the themes for your picture(s). This way people that need the practice can focus on basic technical skills with just an object, and those who choose to can use the topic as their only sketching theme. and for everyone that incorporates the object into their topic an extra smiley face will be added!
With that in mind I think I’ll add a “topic” to this thread… :spin:
Disclaimer: If I just said something rather loopy, I blame the pain meds, I had a surgery to remove all four wisdom teeth this afternoon, so I’m still a little :spin:. yeah, soft foods for my diner!
