Rama, I love all your new stuff man it's really impressive how much you've grown as an artist.
One crit from me is that you are working way too soft right now, it's really confusing to the eyes. You should try working hard and only softening the necessary edges for a bit and see how it effects your work.
If you have Gurney's Color and Light, he talks about edges a bit, it might be worth picking up.
Other than that, looking handsome as always.
Dude, looking nice =) Can see decent improvement =) My favourite is the Witch piece, great work man =)
Nice looking life studies and faces! Also like the four-handed dude and the witch.
Keep on updating, it's always pleasure to follow your updates. :)
There is this period of time when an infant becomes a man,
a butterfly turns to a flower or a mushroom to a fungus. This
time has came into your art career in this moment, in this
right and very moment. Till now you were just an ordinary
interstate plane, but now you are more than an intergalactic
pneumatic rocket. Very few can respect the true value of the
hermetic backdraft, but somehow you managed to gather the
essence of the realistic and unnatural. At the same time.
Such beauty and might captured in one stroke one painting,
one eternal moment in a dazed flying haze. No discouraging
words I have for you now, just looking at some of your latest
works, make me to wonder, to feel the inner beauty, the
realistic, the knife, our dreams coming true, through you.
Rama The troll! lol your work is great as per usual! Really digging the red head in your recent post. keep at it dude, and don't slow down otherwise I'll be biting at your heel soon enough :P
I can smell more good stuff
hitting the corner pretty soon.
He is looking epic, this last serious business guy, he is ready
to aim and to kill, and he never misses. He will throw with violent
hope, without any hype, striving to dive after his decline.
Good values, good contrast, good vibes and good general
feelings overall. You do keep doing things like this and never
stop burning the heated up crystal ashtray.
Thought i'd drop by since i haven't been here in awhile, liking dem studies. Something about drawing skulls is like artist meditation.
I'm offended you would give my fellow negro a big forhead! looool I'm kidding i'm liking the character sheet and updates man! you studies are remarkably clean, How long do you spend on your portrait paintings?
When I see moments like this one is, I say to myself;
this is fantastic, I have to save this, I have to use this
effect and lighting myself. And I saved it on a special
place and will be used as an inspiration and motivation.
The final of the serious guy is also outstanding, and I think
that you definitely made improvements in your skillset. The
best thing is to hear that regular updates will come from now on,
finally we will get back to our old shape, plus the upgraded skills
that you have, everything will turn out great.
You progressed a lot since i last saw your work!
The anatomy got much better as well as the colors, i think the weakest parts in your work are the values and sometimes the rendering of (it especially shows in the women face studies) different surfaces.
The values seem to be too close to each other, and sometimes the rendering of different surfaces and materials looks quite similar too.
Thanks. I'm glad you like it, even if this is just a crapy sketch. It's always a pleasure to read a quality comment from such a quality person ;)
Hey, thanks for all the feedback. I'll try to apply you crits right away. Appreciate your comment, and welcome back ;)
Love ya <3 Here's a small dump.
hi, it is cool, can i give you a council on your painters. you should to use less to saturate in your light colors. :)
Heyait's lookin gud, keep it up :O I think the edges can be a little to soft in areas though around the contours for me. Mostly in the areas of light, in shadow it looks good
I like your still life paintings a lot (pliers, knives, orange, etc... all very good, some of your best - especially those PLIERS holy shit!)
I really like that last house study you did on #516.
Sounds like you are gone now so who knows if you will ever get this, cheers.
The studies are really good.
Proportions and values are on point. I also like the dramatic lighting in those portraits
but you go a bit extreme with the contrast and the form gets lost a little bit.
Also the "line quality" or sharpness is strangely inconsistent sometimes.
Try to add detail in the most important parts of the painting. If you're not gonna
take a painting to the level of finish you initially intended to blur out any tiny details that
you maybe already put in.
The anatomy/muscle studies are good but the perspective looks a little stiff because
the construction lines are parallel.
Keep up the good work!
Good work here. Those mastercopies look fantastic! Good to see all those anatomy studies with the box's. That is the way to go! Watch out for line quality though, it's inconsistent. I think the guy above me mentioned this too.
Some of your images on the previous page have too many soft edges. Watch out for that. Get some hard edges in there. Find a nice balance.
Keep up the good work!
Hey, thanks for feedback i'll pay more attention to those issues next time <3
I'll try to keep those line in shape next time. Cheers for feedback ;3
Ok, been busy with life and commission stuff that i won't be able to show for freakin' million years :<. anyway some anatomy stuff for now. Gonna try to step it up this week. Hold your fingers
As youíve turned on the winter cooling fresh orbital fan, everything turned brighter
and clearer. Things just became more serious, cause your determination and mind
power got traveled from the current location to a whole different level. Your understanding
of the general idea and underflow is maximally sharpened, I can see the anatomy studies
going at pro level, Johann Schneider is looking real humble now. No words can describe
your arrow like fast improving behavior. There is a magic formula hidden under your
table, plus your hard work and there you go a new creation is reborn. Also your value
understanding and design ability got turned to admirable. Simply fascinating. I donít
even want to talk about material studies, cause my jaw just instantly hit the toilet seat.
Wonderful job on everything, and the best thing is that you are still improving and
your never giving up attitude is scary. Keep it up you know that it makes sence.
I will follow with an eager impatience.
MMA rules, and greyscales are always welcome in the arsenal.
I think that the ďShit dudeĒ will turn out scary and creepy, but
he will have a strong personality to change things to a better.
Shiny knife in his hand, no one will be able to make him a stand.
Each and every day you are getting closer to your goal, so keep
on doing what you are doing, and donít turn off the water jet,
while itís pressure is at itís best and strongest.
Nice posts. The figure drawings and character thumbs look great. The studies look awesome as well. Steady improvement mate. Keep it up!
