Fairchild DSC by Dualmask Fairchild DSC by Dualmask
Caitlin Fairchild for :icondailysketchchallenge:, about 25 minutes.

I'm going to try to keep up with doing one before going to bed every night. The hardest part is dealing with characters I just don't want to draw. But I think this is my third time drawing Fairchild, and my first time doing so half-decently.

Caitlin Fairchild, Gen 13 Wildstorm

This is a really strong picture, based on perspective. She is solid and alive, thanks to the angle you've picked. I especially like the solidity of her torso in this image.

Thanks! I've always felt the character was best depicted as a formidable, Amazonian type.

Good stuff for a speed sketch man. I hear you on the "characters I just don't want to draw" bit - I tend to get around it by doing it totally in my style. Which is handy as most of my serious work now is drawing other people's characters. In my spare time I fight back by designing more of my own ;)

Thanks! That's why I have so much trouble keeping up with :icondailysketchchallenge:; sometimes there's no force on earth that's going to make me want to draw what they post up, such as Native American action heroes (which seems to have been the theme for the past week), especially not a male one. I get the point of it though; it breaks you out of your comfort zone and helps you appreciate drawing for its own sake rather than always doing what you want to do...but I'll break out of my comfort zone on my own terms, LOL.

Totally true...I understand it, but it still grates on me. Also one reason why I'm pretty happy being a semi-pro, who can pick and choose the work I get. Nothing would murder my love for drawing faster than having to slave away all day on landscapes, greetings cards, babies and stuff to be able to buy bread. :O

That's the kind of life I'd love. I have to find a way to make a living off of my work so I can escape the prison of my office job.

I'd be happy just to be able to drop some hours from my office job, have maybe a 4-day week. That would be my ideal. Let's work our butts off in the meantime and see what we can do, eh :D How's the course going BTW?

I just cleared a storyboard course, and this week I'm starting a class on camera and lighting in 3DS Max. It's focused on composition and scene work, which is my weakness, so I'm looking forward to learning more.

3dSM...I remember busting my head trying to teach myself that back in about 2002. Version 3 or 4 I think. I envy anyone who can get their head around 3d modelling. Sometimes 2d still blows my mind ;)

I had troubles with Max at first too; when I was in school years ago, I couldn't make heads or tails of Max 5. Fortunately, the tutorials we used in my first online modeling class were very well laid out and easy to follow. I'm pretty comfortable with the basics of the software now, though I don't see myself as much of a 3D artist yet. It's one thing to know the tools, but another thing entirely to know how to use them well. But I'm getting there. :nod:
