    Thread Starter: Agerkvist

    I have the following questions: When doing this study I stuck to the 1 hour limit and obviously I struggled since I'm new at this, but I see many other people here spending much longer on each study. Should I disregard the time limit aswell or just focus on getting faster? I did this using no...

    Thread Starter: samwaulu

    Hello folks! I picked Repin's "What freedom!" for its marvelous flow and the overall luminous, translucent quality. Also took a larger bite than I could actually swallow. Haven't really painted in about three years. In one hour only produced some incoherent puddles. Simply couldn't leave it at...

    Hi everybody! Thanks a lot for one of the best lectures about composition. I'm rather new here but I've got very inspired by your Level UP! project! I may have some problems with my English, but I'll try to write my ideas in simply words and make some additional illustrations to help me:) Sorry...

    Hi :) I'm giving a try at this assignment since I desperately need some practice and good advice to improve my skills. 1- "THE PEARL" - Bouguereau I choose this piece because I loved the dynamic silhouette of the girl eventhough she's just kneeling. I also love the opposition between...

    Thanks for the video, it had some great information. I really like how Norman Rockwell used such hi-contrast lighting along with his realism. He really knows how to add drama, while leading the viewers eye wherever he wants you to look. I always struggle with getting my values right when it...

    This took me maybe a bit more than an hour (maybe close to 2? I kept getting caught up in the details even though we weren't supposed to worry about that) spaced over 3 days (first day cramps, second day pinched nerve in shoulder blade and forced myself through another pinched nerve today to finish...

    I did this on my Ipad using a stylus and Procreate. That 'medium' presented it's own challenges, and since I was looking from laptop screen to ipad, it was even more difficult to gauge the sizes of the composition. But good practice! What I was focusing on here was Wyeth's use of lines. I...

    1. Wrestled with the Frazetta for more than 5 hours, I am sorry to say. I actually went back and reworked this after I did the second study..... I got very lost and overworked (and killed) the Frazetta study, shocking brush economy on the upper torso. Frazetta is the king, just sayin'. 2....
