    Thanks ashess and Jason. The first one is completely from life and the second one is a combination of life and a photo. I had to stand in the second one in order to get the light to hit my face how...

    Great sketches! I really like the facial expression on that last one and the colour's good too.

    I decided to do anther study taking Ashess' advice. I made the softer parts of the face more smooth than in my first study and I feel this one is much more successful. I kept the hair fairly simple...
  6. PixelObsession - Color and Light 1.1

    Here's my first self portrait. I used a strong light source, so the edges of my cast shadows are fairly crisp. One thing I learned while working on this is that reflected light, especially when...

    Thanks ZeCarevilCat :) I double checked to see if mine was higher,, like you said, but it doesn't seem to be. I it's just an illusion because of how it's tilted.

    I wouldn't call it cheating to...

    Thanks again Jason, I'm glad to hear I got that close to the original.

    Here's my 20th study. I haven't done many paintings with a tilted horizon, so it was good practice. There is continuity...

    Thanks again Jason for the great feedback. I really tried to challenge myself with this study like you suggested. I think I'll probably try something with architecture and a challenging perspective...

    Hey Samwaulu, I've been drooling over your work too. It's fantastic! Thanks for getting back to me. It sounds like we're probably having similar problems. Hopefully all this practice will help...

    The figures in this painting are a good example of rhythm and variety. The size, poses, and value of their clothing are all different which keeps the viewer engaged and draws the eye into the...

    I really liked how the lighting was set up in this Frank Frazetta painting it creates contrast and places emphasis on the women. There's also a nice play between the horizontal and vertical...

    This painting is a good example of continuity with the direction of the sword and polar bears creating a diagonal from the top left towards the bottom right which helps to balance it. The emphasis...

    Your values are reading really well, but it seems you've used a narrower canvas again which will make it harder to map out your shapes correctly. I wouldn't worry too much about the time limit. I...

    Well, I guess I have a tendency to tighten up too much and over detail so that it becomes really stiff looking and looses the painterly feel I started out with. The amount of detail also tends to be...

    The subtlety was really tricky in this one, especially around the eyes. The angle of her arm leads to the face where the highest contrast and the emphasis is. The folds and pattern on the clothing...

    Thanks Atnasina! Just so you know, I'm not doing them that fast. I did the first few fairly quickly, but I've been spending anywhere from 3-6 hours on the more recent ones. I still make sure to get...

    Thanks for all the positive comments, it's very encouraging.

    It's been a long day, but I've managed to get one more finished. I like how the land mass in the foreground sort of points to the boat. The reflected light on the water also helps to silhouette it....
