#21 loving the shapes and pointers on this one, great mini contrasts and great 'as a whole' as well. I can't imagine planning it out, or how random it was to make. Nice!
Thanks BS :) - I totally see what you mean. Since then I've been using different brushes. I found in that last Sunblom (#17) that he used like palette knife smears while my brush was a single kind of...
Worked on this one more. Out of all of them (well close behind that Rembrandt ship) - I found this extremely frustrating - maybe I'm channeling some vibes through the study itself but the faces and...
5:15 yikes. Tough one... this one I really liked the painting. The soft and the hard edges are really well done. Compositionally I think the darks somehow lead the eye. And the whites are...
Looks great - great start! If you view other threads folks keep recommending to focus on shapes / values / edges in that order lol. I see you've done edges where the shapes and values aren't...
Hey SandrineM these are coming along great :) I'd say you nailed the texture work of that tree one. The last two, I can see have a little more headroom in whites to push; meaning comparatively, you...
Hey thanks SandrineM the beard man was easier as I have a similar beard. Must of been an intuitive channel.
Here's another one by Jean-Léon Gérôme. I thought this description was cool:
#17, found this one really difficult - the lighting situation is really... subdued and the tonal shifts are subtle. And then there's the likeness of the faces....
Thanks BlackSheep - it's almost like he used a fisheye lens lol. I really appreciate your feedback on the areas I missed - things start meshing together when you look at it so long. Fixed them.
Did an extra half hour on this one, fixing some stuff:
I must of been slouching lol if I look at my lcds from top down I can see more value definition. First...
Thanks BlackSheep I find squinting really does simply the bigger shapes / values to fix :)
Here's the next one #16, and a free tutorial yeeeee!!!
I rarely start a painting with...
A simpler one, over an hour. I liked how Pyle used high contrast areas on tangents with interesting parts, there's a ton of pockets like that, with cool things in line with them.
Thanks BlackSpot! Damn I read that after working on this one - - next one, I'll work them out more - for sure it's a crapshoot when thing's aren't looking right - I catch things out of place after...
Great progress! I'd say (I'm no expert) that your structures are there, could just finish them off more - with the final details and textures etc.
And for your question yeah pure black and...
On to 14! 13 was interesting in that the noses matched horizontally.
hmmm I think my last 3 posts disappeared... cool. I'll post them again. #8,9,10 half way there!
#7 Not an art master study but I thought the lighting was excellent in this one/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/helenanormark/
I like the sharp horizon, super contrast - like a pointer...
#6 this one's all about leading the eye with contrast. I find it starts in the sky the goes down the valley the peppers with the rocks and blocks. Also the path on the left is another...
Chose this one as it reminds me of daily life lol. In terms of composition there's a lot going on, even the whole shape like a triangle, evenly spaced feet (rhythm + repetition), the...
This one I felt was very atmospheric, which I liiked. At first I thought it was pretty random but after copying I found Albert used the punched darks to lead the eye around and have it...
#3 same with number two, I'm really liking the subtleties. I like how the most contrast is at the foreground and the crazy character is softer. Has a tenancy to put yourself in their...
#2 hmmm went overtime like 1:15 having fun! I'm no art historian so I just pick these on the fly, I found this guy has...
First one! I initially liked the figure, but once copying for like 45mins I noticed I liked how the light travels across the canvas and the layering of the main value shapes. If you...
Your Work is Tight
Both the epic and lust provoking females and the design works.
I really enjoy how solid your perspective and symmetry is. Could you share how you start the designs?
