My Levelup membership renewed on July 3rd but it seems since then my account is no longer a Levelup account and I can no longer access the levelup forums. The paypal ID number is: ID...
Thanks for the critique and the compliment Jason! I've uploaded a quick fix where I removed the arrow and brought up the values of the shadows just a bit.
Hi Assumzaek. Very nice portrait! Off the top of my head I think the first thing that would help your portrait would be to simplify the hair in the painting. You did very good work on the features...
Hi McCloud, nice work on your portrait. Your image seems a bit too bright and your shadows too harsh. My suggestion would be to paint the face overall darker and save your whites for the brightest...
3 hour self portrait
I about skipped this assignment just so I could jump to the next section and start drawing skulls. Seems like so much more fun.
When I was painting my selfie, one...
Nice work Jimid. My suggestion would be to watch your edges. Some of your edges seem too soft or sketchy
Very nice! I think the only difference I can see really is that the knife on the original is a bit brighter and has a little more rim light. But that's just a very minor thing.
The Medicine Ship N C Wyeth
So I meant to have this one done last week but I wasn't happy with my first attempt and just decided to redo it. Looking at my second attempt I may...
Thanks Jason! I really appreciate the feedback you've been giving me. Sorry for the late response. Its funny how you don't notice these things till later. Maybe if the head was tilted a little...
Unknown Andrew Loomis
A quicker study than usual. Was trying to use episodes of Top Gear as a timer. So the focus here is the man and woman just a moment away from...
Unknown title - Gil Elvgren
Another busy week. Hopefully I can find the time to get to 20 by Monday. I've done another Gil Elvgren study and one of the things I like about...
Nice improvement. I might suggest using some more textured brushes. The original painting looks like he might have used some dry brush work by scumbling the lighter values over the dark....
Sorry for the late reply. Was a very busy weekend. In the copy of the of the Gil Elvgren painting I didn't mean to imply that the dog was the focal point of the composition. I was more or less...
In for a tanning - Gil Elvgren
4 hr study
I'm kind of a sucker for cheesy pin up art. Its fun to look at and even more fun to paint. In this composition the viewer's eye kinda...
Thanks for your input Madaoway. I'll try and watch my values. I always seem to neglect something.
The window tip was that instead of zooming in and out of your painting you can open a second...
A Bedouin Arab - Sargent
Another Sargent copy where the man's face contains the darkest and brightest values in the piece and is surrounded by a loosely painted light cloak. Its a very...
Was a busy week and wasn't able to get much work done until last night. Here are two 1 hour studies.
Room in New York - Hopper
In this painting Hopper uses mostly simple shapes with...
Thanks Jason! I definitely need to work on my consistency. I'll do my best to follow your advice and to also take note of the composition elements.
Yes, I was the one who suggested the new...
Mermaid - Andrew Loomis
I decided to change it up this time. I usually either start out with a rough value sketch or just freehand the drawing but since this was a Loomis painting I...
Bouguereau 1 hr study
This study is a little rough. I spent a little more time with the drawing in the beginning but I still wanted to keep the total time spent under an hour.
These are some great studies. Your values seem spot on and you're making good use of your textures in such a short time. Keep up the good work!
All of these were done in an hour or less.
I came across this painting by Delaroche on Art Renewal. I'm not too familiar with his work but I really like the vertical stripes of the pants...
I didn't even notice that. Thanks for pointing that out to me Andrea. I did a quick update where I brightened that area and the lake beneath it a bit.
So I went back to trying to keep my studies under an hour. One problem I have with painting that I struggle with is that I take a long time to complete work when I don't hold myself to a deadline. ...
