Lol, No one is actually able to teach u that, except yourself!
The fur in ur last painting is way to hard-edged!!
I know that when u look at a cat for instance u see billions of little hard edged hairs but as an artist u've got to bow down to nature and try to synthesize what u see to make it recognizable to the viewer as best as u can!
Try to paint fur from life or photo and im sure ull learn alot.
Also, looking at how other artists u like do it, is a very good thing.
For instance look at how D.Sillustration rendered that teddy bear.
The paintings from imagination are the result of creativity having fun with the different "files" u have in ur visual library.
Obviously if ur library is empty, then painting from imagination will hardly be succesful for u.
alright demo here it is. first of all, good effort. i forget who said it but it goes something like this, in your life as an artist you'll probably have a thousand bad pieces but the key to becoming a great artist depends on you getting those pieces out of your system. i have lived by this over the past couple of years. esentially it comes to practice, practice like you there's no tomorrow. all this stuff will snap into place and one day you'll be like "damn, i have grown so much as an artist".
as for a crit, lots of your stuff has potential, but lacks experience and technical ability =more studies and more drawing. when you do studies *don't stop looking at what you drawing*. you can see it the easiest in the painting you did of that girl in the photo. i can see where you weren't looking and where you were. painting in gray scale might help to, it's pretty hard to be focusing on ten things like painting color composition etc etc at once so why not minimize it. and also do some master studies they will help so much with colors. now to leave on a good note, the car study you did is great. lighting is good and the minimalist rendering is very accomplished. gj. later, and i hope this helps.
It would be foolish to restate what has already been said...so...just keep pushing...things are already looking better...I like the colors that you chose for the graphic work in#35...and the two acrylics are looking good..keep it up
your work shows A LOT of promise. i can tell you like digging in and working on details. thats always a good thing. however, you need to work more on developing good forms, some of them look awkward. a good way to go: general to particular. in other words, basic forms to super details...without to within.
the best practice is drawing from life. just keep drawing.
Tooled yah Iv heard that befor but i dont consider all my earlier pieces as bad, their kind of just stepping stones twordes better pieces but i still love every piece that i do. but i totally get what your saying and theirs allways more to learn and more detail you can add to something
thanks for posting ()nionwell of cours dont plan on ending any time soon thanks for the post risingfromashes yep acrylics are a very diverse medium and im just starting to delve into what you can do with them thanks PeetaerThanks its always good to hear and yah somtimes rather we like to hear it or not basics is something that can always make or break a piece
Well iv been to lazy on my AP work and all iv done today is work on my CHOW so if any one else could help heres the 2 directions im going
awesome rendering skills with the pencil. You're not afraid to go dark, which is a great thing. :]
I like that painting of the flowers on the first page, tells me that you have a good eye for color and know how to paint [well!]
I suggest to keep those anatomy studies up, you're doing great.
2 out of 4 done another bad pic becaus of small scaner
its kind of a tribuit to my GFs car ill probably add some finishing touches to it befor i turn it in o well 2 more 1 more week
O btw im kind of having problems with this piece after looking at it it kind of seems like it looses focouse between the girl and the car and the captians wheel i think one of these needs to be darker to help emphisis the others but which??? help please
