    EvanCampbell: Thank you so much!

    bharat: Thank you!


    Ok, here's a crappy landscape (must..work..HARDER), a Bouguereau copy I started and some color keys for the caterpillar

    I'm leaning towards the top right color test for the caterpillar.

    Bouguereau rocks!! .

    For the color study, I'm personally liking the one at the bottom right.

    Icecold: Thank you! That's very kind of you

    Shamagim: Oh yes, he rocks sooo hard!
    I am so confused about the color tests ( I always am when I do this), I see how the bottom right is more "harmonious" but the top right has this psychedelic groovy sort of thing going on that I like too. Ahh!

    Another landscape for today, from ref. Keeping it loose. I am going to try and do these more often till I get confident enough to attempt environments of my own.
    Any tips and help with resources for environments would be most appreciated!

    Started work on the final image. About 2 hours into it, most of which was tweaking the background color over and over and over again .
    I decided the black curvy thingy on the caterpillar wasn't really working, will go back to the glowy simpler forms in the previous value study.
    Need to start adding more variation in the colors on the body, I thought I'd start with a fresh eye.

    new one looks pretty sexy already. don't forget to use that nice abstracty background to point the eyes where you want them to go. for the value/color studies, i think i like top right one best.

    edit: also, consider exactly where the caterpillar sits in space compositionally too. right now the bottom of his body splits the canvas in half, and the side of his body splits the canvas the other direction. that, along with the central placement of the shroom, makes him feel, more or less, very intentionally centered. didn't seem to be happening in the thumbs. i'd kind of like to see a version where the upper half of the shroom and the caterpillar are both flipped horizontally. people will generally look in the direction your characters head is pointing, so that flip would allow the picture to read from the left to right (alice looking up/right, caterpillar looking down/left). dunno, i could just be talking out my ass.

    i'm digging the quick leg/hand study from the top of the page. very nice!

    That's some really nice and quick painting for your friend's drawing . I love the environment study as well.


    Good luck with the caterpillar, I know how long illustrations can sometimes turn into sand traps .

    llex_paul: Thanks! I'm glad you like those, they weren't working very well in the final painting unfortunately though. I'm going to do some more color studies

    Shamagim: Thanks! Needed something to show for the day Need to do more environments!


    Here's a figure study for today. About 1h15min, still a WIP. Will add hands/feet/head/ later! I should probably be practicing drawing hands and feet first.

    Very subtle work , I must say. You could teach more than a few things about edge handling.
    Its sad the even though I always appreciated your work I never really posted here. Problem solved I suppose. HEh.
    AWesome stuff. Subscribed. STarred.

    Hey S,
    One thing that helped me with environments was to paint lots and lots of quick little thumbnails, trying to capture the light and textures with the minimum amount of strokes.
    Here is an example of how I did it:

    DanielC: Thanks! I'm glad you like it I'll finish it off and post in a day or 2.

    bhanu: Thanks for stopping by Yay desis!

    Chupacabra: Thank you SO much for that! I did some thumbnails and I think I already got a slight hang of it between the first and the third. I'll keep posting these regularly, please feel free to tear them apart.


    For today! :
    edit:The third one looks really flat on this machine (I'm using my sister's laptop to upload), I'm going to go back and check and fix it.

    My fav. is the first one, the light on clouds is masterly. I think the last one is the flatest of the lot, maybe have a contrast in the temperature on foreground and background. If you look at the snowcovered mountains one notices that the the shadows and qute warm, maybe tweek that a little bit.
    Much love,
    Bhanu

    Looking very cool. Now you can make some broader brush strokes and cover more surface with them. In the third one, the foreground seems actually accurate but also very busy.
    Keep at it, it's going great!

    Love the sketches in post 383.
    Each one of them has the same issue though:
    the visible deltoid muscle(s) is too short and should extend further down the upper arm.
    Hope this helps.

    Thumbs up

    I'm looking in a bit late on this...but very nice start. You've prob made your decision...but I like the closed eyes.

    Looking forward to seeing it done. ( ? )

    xinranliu: Thank you! I went with the eyes opened for the longest time, but I felt the closed eyes went better with the card (blind faith..heh) .

    NR43: Thank you! I think I fixed it in the final.

    Brushcommander: Thank you!!

    Jephyr X: Thanks! I went with the closed eyes. Here's the final!


    It's been a crazy month but I finally managed to finish off the cards! I'm not happy with them, but I'm glad its over, I realized how much more I needed to study/learn.
