    i know you hate that painting, but do you have a process for it saved?

    i think the skintones are just great.

    Sounds like we might have a bit similar taste..
    I like Bouguereau though, but I do miss a bit of "darkness" in his paintings.
    And I'm totally mad about Leonardo - Especially his drawings of inclined female heads and his sketches of grotesque heads and horses.
    Yes Rembrandt was an amazing painter. His etchings are genious as well. I can't get his etching of Adam and Eve out of my mind.
    You say you like Turner, do you also like Frederic Edwin
    Church?

    hp, thank you There are no progress steps saved, sorry!

    Hans, have you seen the new website of AAA? It's now offical that prior drawing experience doesn't matter (which makes sense, the program is really difficult and intense BUT with time everyone can do it)
    I like Church's work very much too!
    By the way if you know any folks who want to attend AAA from September 2009 - I'm looking for a new roommate from end of September.

    Elf, thank you! Here's more!


    Two unfinished digital paintings (PS, wacom tablet). I gave up, like so often, because if they don't look "right" from the beginning I feel it's a waste of time finishing them, and I start a new one. XD

    Woah, just thought about if you had some new stuff to show, and here it is!
    Great new sketches. The colours of the girl one post ago are amazing! You get better and better. I also like the nouveau art style piece in your latest post, it looks very mature in some way.
    Watch your anatomy though. You still tend to follow old habits, although I think you're much better than that right now. Great progress anyways!

    Nele, thank you! I'm following your sketchbook here... great stuff!

    Hans, thank you! Yep, I was really really excited too all the time before I first came to AAA!

    Update time!!!

    A new digital painting - my original character Saphatino.
    Kristina is now a FULLTIME freelance illustrator! - updated April 3rd

    And my very first 100% charcoal figure drawing done at Angel Academy of Art! (His name is Ernesto by the way). I didn't know his shoulder looked off, until several people on the intarwebs pointed it out to me Dx In fact, it looked exactly this way IRL. This is proof that nature can look weird.

    WOW your works are impressive! I wish I had time and money to go to art school. Can you give me a bit of advice on how to manage colors? I have a lot of trouble with managing my colors in my works. Thanks!!!

    rosethornCGart, thank you!
    Managing colors is just a matter of practice... I manage colors totally differently in every painting, and about 80-90% I use colors how they "feel" right, but that "feeling" for color is something you can acquire - you don't have to be born with it!
    You can see here one of my old works from 2005: http://maidith.deviantart.com/art/Et...s-Nos-15522804
    And one from 2002: http://maidith.deviantart.com/art/Oo...work-103118907
    My colors really sucked back then! XD

    To quote Linda Bergkvist:
    "Usually, there will be one colour that sets the theme for the image - this is the 'general' mood...often influenced by the main character of the image. Say, I have Indeoque, who is one of the main 'leaders' of a powerful group in my Furiae world... his dominant colour is the pale blue of ice. If I paint a picture with Indeoque in it, it's highly likely that his personality will have something to do with the theme - and thus also likely that the picture will be prominently blue. If his brother Hajieelkhe shows up in the image, the blue will be mixed with bursts of green and we'll have a colour scheme that will remind you of Northern Lights, perhaps: blue, green, with tones of purple and lilac perhaps, and bursts of crimson because there's a lot of emotion there, lurking under the surface.
    I think I pretty much pick all of the colours at the same time: I settle on a colour scheme and a palette (sometimes painting the palette out before I start the actual painting) and then adapt everything accordingly. I think it's a little risky to be 'matching' colours (as in, matching the background to the skin, or the skin to the clothes, etc), and it's always better to have a general colour scheme and let everything move along with that flow :]"
    "I'm not entirely sure if there's any way to study something in particular to learn skin tones -- except for people. My best tip to you would be to take photos of one person, a friend preferably, in a lot of different settings. You can do it like a fun day of fun photos - go all over the place, from morning with morning sunlight until the evening. Even snap pictures at night time if you can. Keep the subject's face at the same angle. Then shrink all these photos to a smaller, thumbnail size and set them up next to each other. If there's a better way to get a quick crash course in how skin tones are affected by different environments, I honestly don't know. After you've done this, do very, very quick referenced skin tone shots of each and every little photo (meaning, don't paint a portrait, just try to imitate the skin tones), and try to get a feel for it.
    Reference is worthless unless you first understand how the things that you're painting actually 'work'. For training, I'd suggest using reference every second picture you paint, and paint every second picture entirely from your imagination. Best would be to try to catch a couple of life drawing classes while you're at it. It's easier to get a feel for the shapes that way :] "


    New work!

    Wow nice work! You are getting very soft, especially in the draperies - I totally like it! And artistically there is a nice feeling/atmosphere
    Guess who's in Florence by the way

    See you soon!
