Kratos Burns by NemoNova
Kratos Burns
I'm going to admit that I came to the GoW series pretty late. God of War 3 was my introduction, but a solid understanding of Greek Mythology got me through it. 

I believe that there is a little Kratos in all of us: a violent and brutal asshole out for revenge at all costs... but... I'm pretty tired. I also have work tomorrow, so maybe I'll take revenge later. Anyway. I hope people like this painting I did today. 
Sera by NemoNova
I never thought I would care for another elf since Saria in LOZ. 

---> For serious though, I had a best friend for a long period in my life named Sarah Dunn. She was Irish and had a lot of sass, just like this character. Her and I had to split as our paths split and we became different people, but I'll always remember her and love her for accepting me when I didn't even like myself... :)
Sketch Dump # infinity +1 by NemoNova
Sketch Dump # infinity +1
I randomly decided to practice painting black people today. I don't really find it challenging b/c the ratio between values is huge, so I find it easier to achieve form through gradation.

What do you guys think? Is darker skin harder or easier for you to paint?  
Cut Like A Diamond by NemoNova
Cut Like A Diamond
This may come as a surprise to many people, but I really like anatomy... like... a lot.

The truth is that I don't study images of muscular men that much. I study female fitness model images b/c they usually don't build so much muscle that they distort their form/proportions to the point that I can't learn anything. They also look a lot nicer.

anyway. This is a quicky, but I like the way it turned out.

So finally my degree and long time experience as a factory grunt have been recognized... sigh...

I've been holding on financially by the skin of my teeth for awhile, but I've largely kept it to myself. Literally there have been some months where I've only been in the green by the little leftover change I've had in my hand and that's pretty scary when you're renting your own place and there are people relying on you to pay bills. The only things keeping me afloat were the patrons who had me do commissions and, to my shame, theft. 

Despite my practiced smile, and how I spoke earlier of the opportunity to tour several US Wizard Conventions with industry legend Kurt Lehner, I didn't mention how baffled I was as to how I was going to fund it. Yes, as you can imagine, this caused me great stress. 

Frankly, however, I didn't care and figured the opportunity was too great; I would go into debt happily for this. But serendipity has struck it would seem because now I don't have to (you may have noticed I was speaking in the past tense :D ).

In the past I've spent months looking, but this time it took only two days! I've landed well paying work as a machinist for a large company. They honor my years of experience as a factory man, as well as my degree in psychology with added clerical and possible administrative duties. In essence, the solution has presented itself with impeccable timing.

One day I'll be able to work as a full-time professional artist, and I am still calling that it will happen this year! In the meantime, however, I will labor roughly with my hands to earn a living and keep moving forward. I've never been intelligent and my math is horrid, but I know I've got great hands and they'll get me through :).

--> Wish me luck.

---> ---> Good luck to all of us.

I was trying really hard to improve my drawing skills for a bit more than year now, and so far it worked it pretty great. And then I suddenly stumbled across many many anatomical details that I had no clue how to draw or visualize under certain circumstances and in certain poses. Looking up medical anatomy has helped a bit, but it felt like learning and memorizing without really understanding the whole thing, understanding how different parts of the body move and change during said movement.

That was until I stumbled across your tutorials here. I think this is the first time I really understood how various muscles really work, without having to repeat to memorize it over and over again, because it all makes sense now. Really well done illustrations, without unneccessary and distracting detail, but with everything essential clearly and easily understandable.

Nowadays we find great help on the internet, think "Oh, this is nice" and move on. But not this time. I really have to thank you for taking your time and sharing your knowledge. I am sure my artwork will improve a great big deal because of this.

Keep up the good work! :)

Thank you for taking the time to make those awesome tutorials. It's always useful to see others approach to drawing and techniques!
NemoNova Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No problem. I gotta do a couple more for the head and face features, so stay tuned. 

    What should I start with? 
MadAlleyCat Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2014  Student Filmographer
What you feel most for I'd say.

You have some really nice art here. I especially like the tutorial section ;P
There is so much helpful informations ... it was pretty much the very first interesting tutorial literature I read and watched on Deviant Art. I really ejoyed the abdominal section :)
NemoNova Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
lol. Yeah, the tutorials are more liked than my actual work, sad to say. I'm glad people are taking a liking to them. The abdominal one is my fave so far as well, but I'm struggling with making the one for hands right now. I'm trying to come up with some advanced notes so that they are a bit more thorough than other tutorials, but there isn't too much to be said. Hands don't come easy unless you draw them thousands of times :S. Breaking it down into geometrics is a great start, but nothing beats the practice.
