    Mattepainting

    A pretty quick mattepainting I made some months ago.. Mountains and some stuff are hand painted in, and some are real textures from other pictures, and something is lurking in the dark ;P

    Hi there, thanks for the comment in my SB I think you're on the right track; just keep going with the anatomy studies and painting from refs.

    For some specific critique, I feel like the problem in your Hayley portrait is the consistency in your colors. The midtones on the face have a good sense of tone and color, but the darker values seem to be mixed from black, especially in the neck. Also, for the eyes, be careful not to make the lines too sharp. Soften them a bit and add some brown to help them mesh with the rest of the face. If you outline the eyes with a semi-black line, they will feel cut-and-pasted on.

    Good luck and keep posting!

    dierat - Thanks, your absolutely right, my biggest problem in portrait is the colors and very often the shadow part. I have big problem finding the right value in dark and make the transition nicely together with another bright colour like the skin for an example.. Thanks for the tips on the eyes aswell, spot on Please come again ^^

    Hey, nice work on the matte painting, it looks pretty nice,

    as for the portrait, just do some more portraits, practising will help you a lot, but stay away from mixing black into your colors as Dierat allready pointed out. It can be a color of doooooom.^^
    A good thing to practice painting colors, is painting a still life of an apple, or something with a simple shape, so that you can focus on getting it's colors right.

    Keep it up!

    Nice start with your desktop painting, I'm looking forward to see it more finished, if you don't have a lot of time to work on it, try to focus on a small part of the still life, like the glass for example, try to learn from looking how it interacts with the evironment, how lights reflects,...

    Keep it up!

    Good job on the studies, it's a good start, it will only improve by doing them very now and then.
    Take your time to get the colors right, stay aware of any perspective issues that might reveal themselves. And also if you paint something, paint the cast shadow aswel, then it doesn't look like it's floating in the air.

    Keep it up!

    Looking good so far, but watch out for the values as you continue.
    For help with legs, look for a book that deals with it, or even better take some reference pictures of your own legs, and use those, start first with simple/cartoony legs, and learn the basic shapes, ways of movenment,... And then gradually build it up 'till you can draw more realistic legs from your minds eye.
    But it takes time, so be patient, practice and enjoy the learning proces.

    Keep it up!
