    One of these days I'll remember to work early enough not to be right up against deadline.
    But depth is happening. Working from most boring to least boring, so the skin and hair are...

    Tiiicking along. Repainted eyes, began rendering accursed couch, fixed bodice shape. Traded out the really tall hair for a 1770s style that doesn't make her look quite so Bride of Frankenstein....

    My first thought on this is that my eye is going right to the negative space between the figures. My second thought is that everyone is looking off in different directions, in a way that's sending...

    More work done - didn't want to post this progress pic as I am having a fight with the facial features, but them's the rules. At least I finally got the colors right!

    JanJager: Lovely beginning, very evocative and great composition. Her dress looks like it might be about to suddenly head south, however!
    Senira: I love her expression, and that's a wonderful take...

    Can you narrow "Renaissance" down a bit? The period covers roughly 200 years and all of Europe - there's a lot of variation. Plus variation from upper to lower class. A 1450s Florentine nobleman is...

    I've worked from home for about 3 years now, and I'd like to echo the suggestion for changing your routine. Though I do best on a strict schedule and a comfortable routine. Doesn't matter when you...

    The choice of drawing tool will depend partly on whether or not authenticity is a factor - I'm not sure if you want to actually reproduce Renaissance drawing techniques or just produce a picture that...

    First - you've got a good start, with some good shapes in the drapery - you just need to work to bring them out a bit more. There's also some nice personality in the model's face.

    As to the...
  11. SketchBook: Let's get back to some actual sketches!

    New exercise: take someone else's painting, and change who's in it. I'm using the lighting, rough composition, and general pose, but swapping the central figure's gender, build, ethnicity, etc. ...
  12. SketchBook: Only a month between posts!

    What is the world coming to? I finally think I'm working out a rendering style that can be done in less than an eternity and doesn't look like it's chipped out of wood. Of course, it remains to see...

    When I posted my previous sketch, I failed to crit any prior ones. Oops! I hope I'm doing this properly this time.

    That looks very nice. Not sure what you're asking, re: drawing, but the arm actually looks fine -the elbow lines up with her waist, and the thickness seems appropriate for her build. I think the...

    Research mode engaged

    I keep meaning to do a CHOW and chickening out at about the sketch stage without posting anything. However, I have gotten far enough to make some reference collages.

    Here's a bunch of...
  16. Paper type

    Another factor in brush size/detail in watercolor will be the paper texture. Most pads are cold press, which is a sort of medium texture. These won't hold as much detail or play as well with a small...

    Interesting - my trouble is in doing it in color and with light and shade - line is far easier, as is black and white.

    Art: Frazetta Copy - Moon Maid

    I already posted this in my sketchbook, but hadn't found this thread yet. I've been told for years that I needed to loosen my work up, and have had real trouble with it. I figure it doesn't get much...
  19. SketchBook: Still Chugging Along

    Finished a Frazetta copy piece today. I've been advised to loosen up, and I figured that there was no better way to do it than by copying someone with a style in almost direct opposition to mine. ...
  20. SketchBook: Intermittent art dump

    It looks like, as much as I'd like to be a regular participant here, my schedule is unlikely to be friendly to that goal. So, for now, here's another dump of what I've been working on. It shows at...
  21. SketchBook: Hatching technique, digital version

    I've tried to do this hatching technique on the computer a few times, but it didn't work out well. This try is doing better, though a few adjustments could still stand to happen.

    Self crit:
    I...
  22. SketchBook: Dog Skull Librarian

    Working on that hatching technique some more. This one had an old-style monochrome underpainting, pushed as far as I could take it, then glazed. Acrylic on watercolor paper mounted to board, 6"x6"....
  23. SketchBook: All apologies to Van Eyck, Vermeer, Karsh and Gerome

    So, this is what I've been doing lately: a practice piece with lots and lots of hatching in watercolor. Because I'm lazy, here's the text from the artblog post it accompanied:

    The end result is...
  24. SketchBook: Then I fell off the boards for two months.

    Back when I was doing these dailies, I got interrupted. First there was a major project, and then there was a broken monitor, and then there was a large convention. So I've fallen out of the habit...

    Less interesting for spectators today. We're taking on the neck and throat anatomy issue at a crawl. Today, we're starting off with a rather thin lady with some significant musculature. The same...
