@TheDirtSyndicate: thank you!
@Fungus: thanks! but no my avatar is not supposed to give that impression at all
strange day....but anyway: a bad quicky from life, then a bad one from photo ( i think its noah bradley but not sure....i just have a folder with alot of faces where i can randomly take one if i want to do a study of a face)....and a sketch for a painting i had in mind but it's kinda boring so i won't do it if i can't find a more exciting way to do it.
one more before i seriously need to go to sleep
@Sean McClain: thank you!
basically the same...just went a little bit bananas with it
Keep those studies coming man! they look great!
@Bing!: thank you!
@lewiston: thanks for stopping by! love your stuff.
i'm doing more studies but since most of them are more or less quickies i thought i would wait until i have collected a bunch of them... soooo here is just a sketch before i go to sleep... having fun with that chaotic stuff.
Really like your opaque style paintings.... hope to see more! ^^
@siiilon: thanks! yeah i love climbing!
@maolu: thanks and sorry if the following text is not readable....im not good in english:
not sure if you mean color picking by sampling? (just not familiar enough with english) but the way i usually end up with my colors is that i start with very big block-ins and i think when i do studies it takes the most time, since this is the step where i am primaly looking for colors and if i can't find the right colors to get the job done i put in as many adjustment layers as it needs until i think i nailed it. and i think that's also something i shouldn't do because i always have the feeling that when i have to use too many adjustments to get something right i won't learn to do it right in the first place.
a thing i also do sometimes when i have trouble finding a color is to put down a stroke of the color i think is right next to the color i want and then i can see how i have to change it... i started to do this after a few oil studies i made where i hold the brush with the paint next to the color i'm looking for (i think i got that tipp from one of william whitaker tutorials posted on conceptart). but as i said most of the time i use loooots of adjustments when i can't find colors im looking for.
@sickbrush: thank you! i love your stream!
@micahchampion:thank you! but its somehow funny that most of my stuff turns out creepy....i don't like creepy stuff, never watch horror movies (except for alien), hate splatter movies and so on
@Cabbage Caterpillar: thank you!
so....didn't have much time to paint. university keeps me busy. but the good thing is: the less i update, the less i paint, the more i worked and learned for university
this one was done while watching a sergio leone movie...best director ever! love his close-ups and tried to do it the way he does...didn't work but i actually like it nonetheless.
Andrea Tarroni: thank you! i use photoshop. i don't know about the brushstrokes...i think i just do them the same way as in not digital stuff. don't know but perhaps it looks like this because i make the same steps as if i would paint traditional. perhaps it also helps to think of drawing while painting digital where stroke direction is such a nice thing
and once again i tried to do a sketch with a soft brush... i just hate that one
I don't hate it It reminds me of Gerard Richter's paintings!
But I like the brush strokes in the previous drawing more.
Cool stuff mate! Share your brush preset, immediately!
xNatje:thank you! didn't know gerard richter before
Caleb-Brown: thanks! at first i never liked that lightning... but i made a study with that lightning anyway, i had alot of fun doing it....since then i love that lightning
Noomwolf:thank you! well i have no clue. i just keep mashing in brushes until i like it or it's too fucked up...i know not too helpfull....but i'm also reaaaally tired
Madio:thank you! i only really use one most of the time and thats basically just a square brush with some textures. before i used that i used a default square brush which was actually enough i think but photoshop crashed sometimes when i used that brush which is way i switched to another square brush
too late. did record doing this sketch. but when i wanted to watch the record vlc crashed....so not sure if the record is bugged or not. i will see tomorrow or so...don't know when i have time.
Great painting again!
@John: thanks for stopping by man!
@xNatje: thank you!
random late night doodle is random
@gpozzo: thank you for stoping by man!
@maolu: i'm just never sure how to use words and grammar...i just try and hope it's about right
couldn't start windows for a while...well here is another sketch. just wanted to use some light colors....
Love your sketchbook, you have such great energy in your paintings
p.s I was your secret santa, wondered if you got it? I sent it recorded so if you didn't I can try and track it down.
Hey great stuff here 167, 176, 187 are awesome. Good still life studies too.
A creative artist works on his next composition because he is not satisfied with his previous one. When he loses a critical attitude toward his own work, he ceases to be an artist. - Dmitri Shostakovich
