    Hey there!
    It did not hurt my eyes... but it was nice looking thru your stuff. you are on a good way and your designs and compositions look awesome so far. Especially stuff like that: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1207910107

    So, well.. just keep it going like this - and dont kick your own ass too much, only now and then
    Good luck!

    hiho

    shawn, Yeah, I should do some reference studies before diving into the actual concept. I'm going to make quite some more of those before I start on fleshing out any of them. (atleast, that is zu plan)

    Tomat, thanks! glad you like 'em.

    Pascallo, hehe I always wondered if people actually liked such drawings thanks for coming by into my sb! And I'm glad you didn't hurt your eyes

    ok, I did some theapot ref study, I restricted myself to stop after 45 minutes (yea I'm slow) because I tend to go over a lot of things, and repeat myself during progress which in the end only results in that I "change" the painting instead of finishing it. I hoped that if I restricted myself to a time, I would focus more on the finishing part and actually get further with the painting.

    so, progres-steps:

    and 'final' after 45 minuts:

    yours,

    Very nicely done... Really digging the bridgman studies... His use of blocks really helps when trying to figure out how the form is supposed to be positioned in space. that and lighting can be easily adapted to blocky forms rather than spherical forms...

    the portrait in the last post looks like it needs a bit of attention to the lighting... if the light is coming in from the person's front right, you might want to add a bit of highlight to where light would be reflecting from the skin... just subtle amounts though... too much and it will fall apart. you'd be suprized at how much so little could add to a work. Also just be careful of cast shadows... they can be as damaging to form as extreme white or extreme black.

    BRidgman studies are awesome, foundations for life!

    One thing that I did notice is that your shapes tend to stay flat, so try to sculpt more, use more contrast etc. I would say do some black and whites, I noticed for myself that they help alot.

    But great progress! I love the landscape painting, and keep it up!

    You and Duq are so good at that black and white line thing... it looks so cool like that. Maybe you two should get together and concept up a comic book like that lol.
