Thanks Sushy, heck yeah it was really challenging and I had this annoying feeling that I am not supposed to do this but that only means that I am stepping out of my comfort zone.
John Singer Sargent study
Hey man good to see studies n such, try and be a lot more confident with your separation of light and dark on your portraits, you will find a lot more solidity in your portraits and it should be applied to everything else really
Icecold you're too kind
ecki thanks mate, it's a constant struggle, painting that life painting felt completely out of my comfort zone, awkward feeling, gotta get more of those awkward feelings!
TFsean Thank you for the advice
elvish helmet designs, I am not so happy with most of the designs some have potential but I figured that I can train my mind to design better, gotta spend some time looking into different helmet and armor variations and see what I can come up with after my research.
love the helmet designs mate, really nice variations. Keep working that last one, make the focal point the area with the most contrast. Lets keep up
You have progressed so much, well done =]
I'm a peacock, you gotta let me fly!
kingkostas Thanks bro, I think I did like only like 2 or 3 of those designs, I feel like I am stuck to certain shapes and can't get out of it, gotta do some different shape studies I guess.
V3T Thanks, slowly but getting there
lionheartGFX thanks for the advice, this was definitely an exploration phase, will do a lot more of these.
I did this supernova study after watching this tutorial
And thor for the daily sketch challenge
nice updates! im noticing you are a bit afraid of going too dark with your values and going to strong with your colors. iv actually giving this advice out a lot lately. dont be scared of going darker or stronger, when you do studies it is helpful to color pick, youll be surprised at what colors are actually being used and it will help you in choosing the correct color next time. just pay attention to the colors and if you do color pick its meant to help you see whats there so dont make it a habit otherwise its counterproductive :b
Thanks for stopping by my page Danny i love those faces man i'll go study some loomis now haha.
tried my hand at some caricatures, I have this old book from 1984 laying around figured I give it a shot, its fun and teaches you to put closer attention to facial features and their distances and sizes and try exaggerate them.
Your workshop with a very strong fundamentals is still running hard, and the
hard working workers never get tired inside. I saw the light shining through the
window and I said to myself, why shouldn’t I visit. Warm environment is what I have
experienced once again, stepping into this book of awesomeness. You are an ever improver
and your will to becoming a better person is a true example to all of us around you. I need
to do my studies in a more positive way, just as you do. I like the colorful fresh ideas that you
implement in your characters, especially in this last illustration that you posted. Green color
is so good for the eyes and for the liver. I also see that you’ve experimented with contrast
and blurring the background, so you could make the focal point more obvious on certain areas of
the painting. I think that you are doing a very good job. Also doing greyscale paintings from
time to time is an excellent idea, cause you are keeping your values on the right track and sharp
enough for the audience. Bright sunlight is what you have created for us, and a happier future
overall. Thanks for sharing all this, I wish you to paint more and to post more, share your
knowledge and share your true inner self. Be good and stay healthy.
Finally managed to get through your SB. Nice steady improvement throughout - keep up the work.
On your heads - the one you did from life on the previous page is tons better than the ones from photos - do more please.
LtPlissken my good friend, it is a pleasure to read your poems and words of wisdom, you should be a poet... thanks for coming and checking out my latest stuff, means a lot.
Black Spot Thank you for taking the time to go through my SB, it is quite a story from there to now 4 years now since I started
Alright, so here's a tangled study
and some client work
Thanks for reminding about edges, I tend to forget about them and only remember them at the end
More client stuff, seems like this project going to keep me busy for quite awhile and even might turn into a full time position which is awesome, if everything goes smoothly I will be able to leave my boring photography job and freelance full time and when that happens life will be sweeter , "crossing fingers"
