I kow, I know *looks unhappy*. I have been searching but can't find it. It was a professional US illustrator's forum-- somewhere--
Now I remember where I have seen that thin medium before- in Whistler's nocturnes! *lightbulb*
and to even this out here's an example for Sargent's exellent water colour skills (all Sargents can be found at the http://jssgallery.org/ )
here's another one from the same source. It shows the glossy medium, the layering of separate blocks of colour (ear) and the extreme certainty of his line (collar).
from the cleanliness of the...
I second what Elwell and Chris said-
Here's an example of Leyendeckers techique. At another illustrator forum, someone posted the photos he did at the Leyendecker exhibition. I believe this is a...
I like it, the concept is dynamic.
It would be better though, to show the whole thing first and then the details. It's very confusing to scroll through many details when you don't know what they...
I love the humour in your work :-)
I like it :-)
wow, impressive. I like the portrait best, the way you used texture and tonality on skin and wall. I have rarely seen such a good skin in any virtual medium. do you have an academic training (and...
Chris Bennett sent me here to learn about composition ;-) I just noticed that I have been here before.
In an early post you said something like: think tree bark, not lines when you...
Chris- Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. I'll check these out.
Purely graphic composition is one thing, but I'd really love to see something about compositional function. Neither...
oooh, I like your stuff :-)
esp the ones with the retro look or the fake watercolors-
why is it that these fragile styles often have more charm than the completely finished, closed-surface ones? ...
Excellent shit ;-D
I especially like your icon- is there more where this came from?
I like the first one, it's weird and funny. about the others, you have obviously some technical skill, esp. with the ornaments, but you could do more with it. your figures and compositions are...
Hey, Germany :-D
What Hochschule are you at?
You are improving a lot during this thread, the Newborn pics are amazing. very original ideas in content and composition.
I can't access the Niefali...
the oils 1,2,3 are pretty awesome, you seem to have a real feeling for the medium. I like the way you work with light and shadow.
I also like the environment thingy with hooded guys in a...
Chris- thank you for your praise and the ass-kicking. you are challenging me to work harder, and that's always a priviledge. I'm realizing now that I could do much more with the composition. I guess...
very very cool. Love the thumbs. post more!
I like the way you work with textures, lines and colours. you could plan the image a bit more, f.e. I had a really hard time to find the head. it is unclear which parts of the image are important and...
sweet and whimsical, I like very much :-)
very very nice, esp. the third one is very athmospheric. your landscape-y work is pretty strong. is this all computer, or have you done traditional media too?
Hello to Switzerland :-) I like the greenish colour scheme in the first one. I'm curious to see more of your work.
Here's some Cthulhu illustration that I did this year. *glee* I really love that gruesome stuff
The first two were inspired by Sidney Paget's Holmes illus, the man is a huge idol of mine.
sorry, the server went down.
so here goes:
The full dandy
1. AC, a Fairy (water soluble oil and fake gold leaf on canvas, 40x50 cm)
This was my very first oil painting, so have mercy with...
