    Thanks, NB... I stumbled across one of my first digital paintings earlier...remember the Speed mockup? That hurt my eyes to see again.

    I am definitely going to refine my concept further -- looking forward to seeing your final renders, too

    WIP: I was playing with warp transform and gradients after watching Idiot Apathy's tutorial...and my flat piece of grass turned into a planet floating in space...

    I love the digital wip. Your ability to paint things cleanly and quickly is amazing.

    The last sketches are great. Your use of cross-hatching gave them a lot of mood and energy. My favorite one is the top right one holding the gun.

    *shrug* I have no idea. She is sticking her tongue out because her lower lip caused me problems.

    I feel like I learned something on this one, though. I started messing with brush hardness so that some edges are intentionally soft and some are intentionally crisp. I'm sure I got some of them backwards based on what I am going to call an upper left hand light source.

    Bourone - Hey, thanks! - Now that I have my tablet back, I don't have much desire to sketch on paper. It sucked not having my tablet. *grumble*

    Nightblue - Thanks, I dunno about quickly, but thanks. Cool new stuff in your sketchbook, btw - I like the scarecrow and the weird dream girl creature thing.

    Flaskpost - You are too kind, thanks!

    From Flaskpost's enviro challenge...
    I really need to work on these. I think this is
    my first landscape from reference. Ugh. I struggled
    with the foreground for quite awhile, couldn't seem
    to find a brush to do my work for me.

    Hi zhiao, great sb, heaps of amazing work

    You go from stylized and realism, loads of variety here. Your pencil lines seem really confident and your characters are dynamic.

    Good job on tackling those enviros, they're hard! Hope to see more from you

    maybe that's a sign to make your own brush or even just use round brush trying to create textures with round brush has actually been very beneficial to me.

    Nice landscape btw, great atmospheres and all.

    hey, coming along quite good. The yellow on his face looks slightly out of place. Human skin generally tend to have a tint of blue/green, but the only yellow tints tend to come from light or surroundings.

    The face is also a bit flat due to lack of lighting, but then this is only a WIP and I'm sure you'll get there

    Keep up the good work!

    Hey man,
    there are some nice gestural things happening in your work. I think this last painting of the mans head needs more planar structure. The features look like they were copy-pasted onto the face. I would also say you need to use more color in your shadows and less black. I think you are on the right track with those environment copies, focus on matching the color and it can help inform all the other work you do. What year in school are you?

    -Tamte

    Tamte: I will work on it -- I still have trouble discerning colors in real life. I am getting glasses soon, maybe that will help? Jason Manley was a guest speaker at school today, and at one point he was talking about observation and he looked up at the ceiling and was like, Yeah, I see this color and this color and this color and I'm like, There's green on the ceiling! F*#@!!

    I just returned from a six mo. leave of absence, after about six mo. in my program. So, not sure if that counts as first year or second year.

    Two PS doodles from class.

    Nightblue: Thanks for the encouragement! Hope you don't have to wait too long

    Wow I really like this.

    In the second post, the image of the woman's face in the water, I think that is really neat. I's so affective for how simple it is.

    I love how bold your marks are.

    Awesomeee!

    Great ambition, I look forward to seeing more, The Chow 124 you did grew on me, reminded me of art nouveau style, so I came to check your sketches.

    This is a project I'll be doing till October 7th for a foundational drawing class at school (Guildhall at SMU). The assignment is to achieve a photo-real equivalent of the reference photo.

    If something doesn't look right, (obvious or obscure), let me know! Thanks!


    ----------------------------

    Project Outline:

    1. Find a Subject (Photo) of a person with a high level of detail in it

    2. Pencils – Define the details, features and proportions of the subject

    3. Values – Work up a black/white version of the subject

    4. Colors – Work up colors and skin details to high level of realism

    ----------------------------

    Current Progress:

    Thespianmonsalvo - Thanks - Love your aztec designs, btw!

    Sequential76 - Thank you! I really worked hard on that piece. Hard, but not smart. So many problems with it. Next time I will get my design solid before I start getting detailed. (He said earnestly.)

    Hajime - Thanks for the encouraging words!


    Today's update is more progress on my school portrait, including a screenshot of the method I used for this. Basically it involves a hell of a lot of grid lines.
