Malakuko - yeah the palette changes a lot depending on the subject matter. For example the glass orb painting used these colors a lot:
Titanium-Zinc White, Ivory Black, Pthalo Blue, Pthalo Green,...

These are fairly affordable compared to you guys ;)

Hey Jon Sun,
The oils are very promising--you separate the lights and darks effectively and you have a good grasp of highlights. I like the gestural still life the most so far.

The kung-fu panda textures are great!
I was wondering if you intend to do atelier studies. I think it would help get rid of the stagnation and push you in the right direction.

With this last piece, I would also be careful with the composition and edges. The flag and the sword are not enough to counterbalance the tilt of the rock and the leaning right leg....

I hope to see you in Amherst! There are a couple things that bug me about the digital technique. Let me try to explain them:

I've read this over and over but I'm not sure what exactly I'm trying to say here. I'll try again later.
I am concerned that pop culture is a universal understanding of the superficial. For...
