finally getting around to painting again... i haven't touched a brush in almost a year .
anyway, i've been making it a habit to taking in-progress pics. not really thrilled with this thing, especially painting over the drawing in the pants/leg. i guess i'll go back into it w/ some line similar to the jacket. or not. i dunno...
i can't say i'm too fond of painting dogs and things :/.
Great stuff, Chumps, is that you in the ninja outfit!? I really life your figure drawings/gestures, they have lots of energy.
i wasn't expecting this to be your next subject matter, haha
anyway, you somehow made a painting of a dog much more interesting than normal.
i was wondering about the texture in this last one... is it just very thick paint or do you use some kind of modeling paste??
would love to get some crits from you on my stuff.
love it! Painting, animal study, that stylish and simple comic stuff, all. Bookmarked.
in other news if you hadn't noticed my nick has been changed from chumps to stevekim. always wanted to change my nick but until davi came along i didn't know it was possible!
btw as can be seen in my shiny new sig there is a link to an online class i am teaching in the mentoring section of this forum. check it out and lend some moral support to the poor students somehow hoodwinked into listening to me! kekekeke.
I find your art very inspiring. I wish I would have found out earlier about your class. However, I do plan to read along as much as possible because i am sure there is more than enough things for me to learn from it.
so scribbly... and yet so defining... every stroke... all in chaos it seems... and still... complete order and focus...
Pure inspiration man... too bad you class was full, or i'd join'd it'd.'
roughly in order of preference. since i don't have space for oils in my new place (not to mention kinda tired of it) i think i'll dabble in some gouache/watercolor hotness next.
just in case anyone's interested i just posted a lecture for my class i'm teaching. original thread: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=107646
if you are not familiar with stage6, it's like a high res youtube. one caveat however is you need to install the divx web player.
for people with fast internet it should buffer and stream quickly. for those with slower internets (me included) you can choose to download it for offline viewing. it uses the divx codec.
if you choose to stream the video make sure to press the little button next to the volume bar to pop out a window to see it in full resolution (1280x800).
this video is a primer on working with scanned and photographed images.
there's a glitch where some of the photoshop ui elements are invisible, woops! and it's my first time doing this kind of thing so i'm a little nervous/rushed. hopefully the next lecture will be smoother.
since this video kind of sits outside of the original scope of the class, all i can hope is that some of you take the advice to heart. for those less technically savvy (looking at you phil!)... don't fret, just try to absorb the overall philosophy about working with visual media. there's a lot of my personal theories inbetween the technical gobblygook. some day it might prove helpful!
any questions about the content of the video should be posted here.
the next lecture will come shortly and will have actual drawing stuff. the video after that will be critiques of week 1 homework.
btw i've been very impressed by the fact that everyone (or nearly, you know who you are) have turned in week1's assignment and i hope week2 fares just as well!
Damn Steve, these are awesome.
I see some headphones hanging there on the wall, next to your grad show master paintings. Was there a video component to the display?
Right, just want to say something about the cool material in this thread. Those flora/fauna studies are glorious; love them all
i have two paintings up at this korean cultural thingy and i'll be there for the reception tommorow (saturday 1pm to 3pm) on the off-chance anyone wants to say hi
also my piggy painting is selling for $100 (fundraising thing) at this gallery, whatta steal:

Your colors are wild and powerful. And so your compositions. I love your drawings with the highlights painted in white.
I am sad that I will not be seeing anymore Stage6 lectures or those class/mentorship things on CA. That video was amazing! The quality that allowed me to see everything instead of blurs was astounding. HA. It inspired me to use my digital SLR and small digital camera (which I take everywhere I go) as reference takers.
I always wondered how to get my scanned sketches and paints to real deal.
I am a beginner photographer too and love to get the craziest colors just as the sun rises or descends on the horizon.
Thank you for making this video and enlightening me! Hopefully you will create some more videos or mentorships kind of things here on CA. I would love to join! Be blessed.
hey i just redesigned my site www.stevekim.net
i thought a alot about ease of use and i think it's pretty quick and easy to navigate...
there's no new work since i last updated but i did put in-progress shots of the last 5 paintings if anyone is interested in that sort of thing. some terrible drawing for a few of them (got lazy :/)
btw clicking the image takes you to the next image... kind of like a pseudo slideshow. i'm not sure how obvious this would be for ppl though...
check out the links too
p.s. i'm in lms3 so i'm working on that and i need to do some paintings of grand canyon apparently
This is an incredible book you have going here sir - this has to be some of the most unique and intelligently conceived work I've ever seen on here.
Your LMS entry, along with Poshspice's are my favourites from this round - bloody loving it. Especially the composition, odd and engaging.
It's also striking me how much you've improved since the first page: not only technically but also in terms of maturity and sophistication.
Congrats on the LMS victory - well deserved I think!
Will definitely be dropping by more often!
In the meantime, I think this book is way underrated - have 5*.
in here, iŽd say: "manda muito bem!"
I liked so much your paintings!
please keep sharing!
