    So since I was completely bored with that St.George icon I decided to do some more Mark13-Hardware work. This is a sci fi movie from the 80's or so, I saw as a kid, and now recently watched again and...

    SketchBook: The bloody thing is almost done!

    I'd say around 90% done perhaps. This took me WAY longer than expected, I probably have around 20-30 hours put in this thing by now.

    I know if I made a second one it would take a lot less time to...

    WIP - working on a traditional Christian Orthodox Icon - oils on glass.

    Cool work on the body / anatomy, can't wait to start doing similar stuff this semester :D

    I have to say this about the ellipses though: Some of them seem to skew somehow, like here for instance:

    A task we got at school, done this after a still life I setup. Some parts I'm happy with, some not. I need to do A LOT more still lifes to get the hang of it...

    SketchBook: First pastel ever, first serious drape study :)

    Pastel on paper, 100 x 70 cm. Took the better part of a night to do it.

    Added a photo of my still life as well, but the camera was utterly unable to capture the colors on that drape, it's really...

    Moved on to these clay models (I think they are called?)

    Anyway here's some Moses. Started in wood charcoal, then moved to black pastel.

    You're right, one cannot draw large on a tablet, that's why traditional study shouldn't be excluded. I am just saying digital is, like other mediums, one that has its merits and should be considered,...

    Yeah this is exactly what I was going for, something for quick digital studies that are not meant to replace the actual painting later on.

    Alright, fair enough. I'm sure they're in Photoshop somewhere and I just don't know which ones they are or what settings I need for them.

    Note that I said I don't have the brushes, not that...

    Awesome SB, fantastic improvement.

    Could you give a few pointers about creating environments / landscapes ? I love the clouds you make and this is something I'm just learning about right now.

    Short update, a junk moon study that I did in Photoshop, in preparation for a night landscape that I need for school. Totally gave up on that moon, will try again in Art Rage.

    Well look, as far as I understood it, given a 6 x 10 active area, the Wacoms are 4 to 6 times more pricey than what I got.

    I agree there may be some extra quality involved, my question is do you...
  20. What's a good program to practice / improve actual painting skills ?

    I've tried Photoshop, Art Rage (almost what I want but still not quite) and I was just wondering, is there anything that would get really close to real painting ?

    Corel Painter X perhaps ? Or are...

    I think both forums and tutorials, AND a traditional class can help, best (and fastest) if you use both of them.

    One thing that seems to have helped me is "drawing long lines on the shape" as a teacher put it.

    So if you have a vase, you have one ellipse on top, one on the bottom and 2 lines for the sides,...
