Final painting based on this drawing: http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2012/306/0/7/self_portrait_2012_by_richardpace-d5jsts5.jpg Around six hours, give or take.
What a time to...
Just saw a reminder a few hours ago -- doubt I'll be able to put in anywhere near the hours I did last year, but I'll try to make a painting of this before midnight.
I decided I really...
Started around 11:30 this morning. Wish I could mess about with it more, but I gots stuff to do!
Used my usual approach: detailed pencil sketch, fix and colourize in Photoshop, bulk of work in...
Yes. I just never knew art students had so much money to be the focus of a concept art (scam) contest.
I think their parents owe an apology for how they raised their children.
Simpler is better.
Unless you're trying to get a gig as a web page developer, anything more than a dead simple portfolio site is a waste of time and likely to turn off ADs. Unless you know your...
I did and, as an art instructor I've encountered a number of others who did as well over the years.
Your first description sounds an awful lot like the modeled drawing exercise in Nicolaides' The Natural Way to Draw.
I've seen the site before, but never met anyone who attended. Ask to see recent student work before committing.
In a similar approach, a former student of mine attended...
Check out to see who the main Halloween supplier/retailer is in your area. Many cheap props can be tweaked to look quite impressive with minimal effort.
Costuming itself can be a bear -- dpaint...
I've heard from a few sources this morning that Jeffrey fell ill and passed away earlier today.
She will be missed.

There are rules for everything.
Only when you've mastered them do they stop being rules.
Your essentially asking what's the more important of nouns or adjectives when writing a sentence.
Good drawing requires an understanding of gesture and contour. Some illustrators can get by...
This is my most favouritest elf.
I was certain whatever method they used to tan all that paper was carcinogenic.
On a related note: Daler-Rowney sketchbooks make you grow a third nipple.
Not trying to be a dick or anything, but I think I may have covered that a little more clearly here:
Part of the issue you're having with your example is due to the shadow extending far beyond the cone of vision well into gross distortion. Significantly raising the light source will result in a...
arenhaus -- I missed that entry before now.
Gonna have to look into making one or three of those!
I hear he used to do a lot of Coke with some painter dude named Sundblom -- he musta picked up a few pointers back in the day.
It sounds like an atelier is the better choice for you.
There is one in Toronto http://www.academyofrealistart.com/
best of luck
It's great to see you posting again and the progress is delightful.
I look forward to seeing more.
Love the entries as much as I do every year.
Seven hours, from photo reference.
Initial pencil study scanned and worked on with Photoshop and Painter 12x12" @300dpi
Ref and WIP at my blog.
You wrote "estranged" in describing this person's relationship to your family, which sends up warning signs.
People don't become estranged by accident. The family members I'm estranged from did...
Not a fan of gel pens, I prefer the liquid ink pens -- Pilot V5 or V7s and similar pens flow well and rarely skip no matter how fast I'm sketching.
Well, there's the "fake" perspective where you measure off marks on the sides of your image to create a grid. I hate typing it up (even though I teach it). I got it from Loomis -- not sure where he...
