woooaaaah do you mean art center college of design in pasadena california??? i live in that city! (when im not at school) if thats what you mean that would be awesome. and i know a bunch of people who go there and youd definitely get in, maybe even with a scholarship
I have a friends that attend there...honestly none of them are even at your level so I wouldn't be too worried, haha. Assuming you mean the cali one~
Confidence isn't saying, 'I've reached the best I can be--I can go no further.' It's saying 'I know what I'm doing, but I can always get better.'
supa cool, supa cool! the fjord one me lieks in particular! will have to start painting enviros myself now finally cause I wont have any money for food otherwise.. (why wasn't it like that from.. even ten years ago? hmm) EDIT: OH!! and CONGRATS and GOOD LUCK at Art Center!!!
sorry for the lack of updates D: shiit.. I got a lot of stuff to scan though! D:
thanks for the support everyone! I really appreciate it I need to get good enough to solve the financial problem with going to a school overseas as well haha.. damnit.
heres a painting I did today!
which started as a 30 min speedpaint D:
sooo trad paintings are coming?
talking about your painting
but in my opinion color scheme doesn't match the scene
it's just a feeling, my brain keeps on banging
"sth is wrong with it" maybe it's also about the figure on foreground (it has unnatural propotions)
sorry for being so inaccurate
i think you should also focus on pallet of your paintings
Hey man, awesome stuff on that latest WIP, loving how your describing the form with the different planes - looks like a stealth bomber? (from my very limited knowledge). Are you using any videos for this ID stuff? I've found Scott Robertson's Gnomon Workshop vids mega helpful for learning the draw-through process. Keep it up man, can't wait to see how this one progresses and more of your ID stuff.
Ven S: Thanks a lot!
Glaudarien: Haha yeah man i agree! I'll start posting more id stuff from my sb!
Gadbury: Thanks man! I love your work!
Ztak: thanks haha! Its going a bit slow right now tho' D;
Lancer_idenoure: Yes! ACCD! I'll go to cali either way Can't stay away much longer!!
Vella_C_Raptor: Hahha really? Which department are they in? And its a lot about the financial part too D:
Nim: Thanks buddy!
Takashmen: I agree with the crit, I think its the mucho-too-warm in the background that is rubbing off a bit. But one of the goals with the painting, was to push in different fields.. such as value and chroma haha. I have noticed that I leave my paintings a bit too dull. So I gotta practice outside of my comfortzones too
Thanks for the crit man! Really appreciate it!
dlincoln83: Thanks man!
Andres333: Much appreciated! Cool site, looking through it as I type this hahah =)
Glaudarien: thanks man! yeah I have seen those, seen most of his videos I think? D: haven't taken them seriously till now though D:
WIP numbero 4 for the teen challenge:
Cool JET DUDE! would fit a nolan batma movie.
Thinking about playing more with the surface on the jet? make it reflect more its surroundings more?
Thanks for stopping by mate! Really appreciate the thought
cool cool! cant wait to see it rocking that finish stage, mang.
arrr deadline is now.
Really happy about the effort i put into this one D: still missing a lot of fundamentals.. gotta study more from life idd.
Got a lot of great crits and help from Slimeface, ~Faust~ and people on the stream. Thanks a lot! I also got a really sick paintover by meon! LINK
Lovely teen challenge entry dude. The planes of the...plane fit together awesomely.
Hope you don't mind Dennis, but I couldn't help but make a little paintover for you. I LOVE this image so much, but couldn't help but think I would make a couple tiny changes...so here is how I would approach it. As always feel free to ignore whatever you disagree with
The first thing I did was soften the background trees a bit. Right now they were a bit sharp for my taste so I took the smudge tool to it really quick. I also threw in a tiny bit of purple into the trees to help push them back a bit more and add some more colour variation (it is pretty subtle though).
I then wanted to shift the focus to the cockpit more. The way you had it all parts of the plane were treated fairly equally and I thought it would be better to have a more defined focal point. So I bumped the contrast a little by painting in some darker tones in the shadow (although maybe that wasn't necessary--might just be my monitor). I also put in a stronger reflection on the glass. Then I put a quick unsharpen mask on the cockpit to sharpen up the edges and give it a bit more punch.
Now that I felt the focus was more on the cockpit, I needed to keep other areas from grabbing too much attention. I took a soft brush on low opacity and put some of the background colours over the parts of the plane I didn't think needed so much attention (especially the wings) to reduce the contrast and make it a bit softer.
That's about it...other than reducing the darker saturated blue at the top of the sky which I felt was a bit too sudden and awkwardly pressed against the edge of the canvas.
Hope all that helps--it's a bit of a different image now, but is closer to what I would have done had I painted it. Once again it's a GREAT painting and definitely one of my favourites from you!

HA! You will get into the Artcenter and then some my friend. Good work.
