I really like your studies and your artworks...
keep practicing you ps paintings and you'll be on the best way...
Aloha monsieur !
The latest updates are interesting.. and pretty wacky.
The nude painting is cool, the overall proportions seem good. But show us some more value and colors.. if you can
The guy that you mirrored looks almost exactly like my step brother, hehe.
Keep working monsieur ! I'll try to leave a comment more often.
PS: and we need to OC one of these days !!
cool stuff holmes, interesting style your throwing around.
My only gripe is the graphical BG elemtnts sometimes offset the piece.
Keep progressing though, you are getting stronger with your ideas.
I see alot of progress thus far, but one thing I've noticed is your rendering.
It's hard to describe, but as of now your rendering seems a bit sloppy or washed out. It seems like you're afraid to have hard brush strokes, but I think that it's best to you use a hard brush and refine the image afterwards.
hey man sorry for not coming around in so long, good to see you still experimenting
just one suggestion as i see u still being loose and wild as always
an great master i would like you to look at is Egon Schiele, his lines are Really loose, but EVERY line counts to convey the body's anatomy and form, and EVERY little smudge of paint no matter how small help to show the viewer the muscle shape underneath the skin...this is the sort of loose-ness that i advise u try achieving, being loose is good, but being loose yet while making the viewer un-able to pick out one unnecessary line or colour is on a much higher level
hope that helps ya
PS: an example of what i mean: here
Odyism- yeah, you're spot on with that crit...i should be practicing to harden the strokes, but i've been lazy. apologies, i will try to paint soon. thanks for the crits man.
Allan- thanks man! i've studied egon schiele for my art project, never uploaded them but i have done quite a few. i'll try and get some new ones for you guys, until then...
renoir = second one, first is imagination
hey man good stuff, i see that your anatomy is getting better, altho i reckon you should read up on some colour theory and apply some more interesting colours in ur pieces
also regarding your chow piece, really neat idea, altho i have to ask: did u simply overlay the grass with a photo of a forest? or is that a texture brush? personally im all for textures , however you have to watch out how to use them properly, and when to use them...use too much, and it will lose its intended effect...and rather than "spicing" up a part of the piece it will "take over" it instead...
anyhow..just my 2 cents...keep working at it man
I like ur style.
allan- haha, i used a texture brush because i got lazy! *hits self* apologies, i need to fight the procrastination monster!
lee- i have, in my school sketchbook, great medium! i'll see if i can get some here
Studies will not be posted here, i've decided it would help my progression to do studies in the background and more of them. I may scan in the longer studies just to show progression etc
anyway, some new stuff!
fat lady = non reffed strangely enough!
Hey Asoir. Some interesting stuff going on. Like the effect of the mirrored images. Resting arm in the last one looks to big compared with the rest of the torso, maybe try it again using some refrence. Keep going with the studies.
edit - Cool, looking forward to seeing the longer studies then, cheers.
hey man great update...really digging the sp...just watch out for some rendering problems...try using some different colours in your skintones eg: greens,blue in highlights and reds and oranges to spice up your darker areas (you ears had a bit of this )...also remember the eye lid should cast a shadow so make that more clear...remember where some of the darkest shadowed areas are on a face (under eyelid, corner of mouth, inner corner of eyes where it meets the nose, under the nose, under the chin etc etc) pump up your contrasts a bit more
keep working hard man
about the yellowishness, i agree, its an odd pattern in my paintings and i'm trying to avoid it and work in varied colours. tried to nail it in this sp.
it's kinda bloopy and rough but really i'm just trying to get colour variation without screwing it up.
thanks for the helpful tips allan bro!
Love the latest SP, the skin tones are definatly alot more accurate than the other one. The zbrush pice is alos looking great
Keep it up!

hey asoir, been a little while since I've stopped by; just wanted to say I really like the work you've done. great design elements and color choices, and your line quality has a really nice energy to it. if you don't mind me asking, what direction are you looking to take your art at the moment? just curious really... I think your style would work really nicely in both a fine arts and illustration area. either way keep up the great work man!
