May I get my username changed to "BichNguyen", please?
Thanks in advance!
I'm sad to hear you're disappointed about your paintover piece, but I think you can do so much better than that if you start from scratch. If you learn to start from scratch now,...
LtPlissken: Hi Lieutenant. Thank you for the critiques. I think you make a pretty good point about value contrast, especially for foreground subjects. It is definitely something I should work on, as...
Thank you everyone for the comments so far. I will do my best to implement your suggestions in future works.
Stb: Yeah, they do, don't they? It's because most of their influence is from pulp...
I would like to get some feedback on an illustration piece I recently finished for a class. I’m mainly looking for the following: fidelity to the specified style, composition, mood, and...
You have some lovely sketches here! Looking at some of your digi-paintings so far, it looks like you might have trouble with value contrasts. You seem to be over-blending or using a lot...
Hmm . . .
No offense, Lt. Plissken, but I'm not so sure about those paintovers on those photos of the girls. The color on them are kinda nice, but it shows that you've still have a lot to learn...
Hi there. Welcome to ConceptArt.org!
I will agree with Giacomo that you are especially good with blocking in color as masses. However, I disagree with the linework advice. I personally find that...
Figure painting done at The Florence Atelier. I know, proportion problems, and the arms are a little thin. Some of the width might've gotten lost when I was trying to apply "lost edges." And yes, she...
I took a watermedia class this summer in Florence, and this was the last project assignment for the class. The project topic is "travel experience." So, my take on it was combining Catholic...
Small portrait done at Biblioteca dell'Oblate. I was trying out ghost washes quickly here. It was good thing I did, because the person left shortly after I started painting.
As you can see, this one is meant to be seen a little further away. Ah, but the values are all wonked up. Plus, I probably should've stopped working on the robe while I was at it. :/
Hi there. This sounds like a wonderful opportunity.
I have some oil paints and solvents that I probably won't be using anymore. So, I'd like to donate them among other things like big black Canson...
A little sketch I did while I was taking a train to Monteriggioni:
I'm really liking reversing all my images . . .
still life on big watercolor paper done with watercolor and white casein paint:
Also, I added in a little bit of black gouache for the darker shadows because I...
Rape of the Sabine Women at Piazza della Signoria:
By reversing this, I can see at least two things: 1.) the values of the statue and the background are too close to...
As an added note to the previous note, I also need to come up with a way to "self-test" myself on the deliberate practice topics that I'll be covering. I think a really good way might be to draw from...
Arches at Piazza della Santissima Annunziata. Not watercolor, but I had a choice between inks, marker, or felt-tipped pen. I chose Sharpie!
Thoughts on the Spacing Effect and...
Aqualeot: Thank you. Actually, a lot of those are just Alexander McQueen designs. Man, I love his work. <3 But yes, it was a lot of fun drawing them, though very, very exhausting.
Hi. I am back...
Last one . . .
Next up is an attempt at deconstruction.
What's to say this can't be a real discussion? What people bring up here can be valid points for discussion. :)
Trusting emotions can actually be a valuable lesson if we know how to properly....
I think it's more so innate than learned. "Subconscious" is the key word here. Hopefully, I am not twisting Chris' words too much here, but I think this is what he means by that quote: when we...
Oh man . . . I thought the forums would be down again for another couple of weeks. Thank goodness it isn't. O_O
SpaceJelly: Thanks! Good to know that I'm on a good path here.
My imagination's still weak. Haha. But geez, I still need to do something about my energy and sleep schedule.
This is spot on.
Edit: Actually, this is one of the most straightforward discussion of art I've read in a while. I'm not even kidding.
