The cast painting and the charcoal cast are awesome ! Can't wait to see your own "Bargue steps"
Loathsome and oren, thank you
It's been a while, gotta post new stuff more often...
Inspired by Stanley Kubrick's 1960 movie of the same name...
Spartacus wasn't a survivor (unlike his girlfriend and baby son, according to the film), but at least my painting is.
My computer had a bad case of PMS, crashed, and I had to format the entire harddrive. I couldn't save the original file of this painting, but luckily still found this above image in the sent folder of my e-mail box; having previously sent it to my boyfriend. Since the original is gone, there can and will be no prints, no closeups, nothing, nada, niente... but hey, at least this version is saved!
Photoshop and Wacom tablet, blah blah, with references as always, blah blah, about 30 hours.
Thank you for looking!
Nice figurative work!
Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!
Your charcoal drawings are incredible, very inspiring!
Thank you, Pigeonkill, oren and shifty!
Here's a life drawing (using oil paints) from class...
I swear I have no idea how the dude in my painting ended up having more likeness to Lee Harvey Oswald than the model.
Old master copies, once again. Here I'm trying not just to copy the images but to "render" them so they have a feeling of threedimensionality (because I'm always being told my figures look kinda flat)
Tolle Studien! Bei der Öl-Aktstudie mag ich diesen Rotschimmer sehr. Und anatomisch ist doch alles sehr stimmig.

On May 12, the Angel Academy of Art will hold its annual exhibition! (that day also happens to be my birthday, yay!)
I'm very excited about the show, and hope to get to take a ton of photos!
new digital speedie!
Also, I finished my 2nd cast painting at Angel Academy, and currently am working on my 1st still life.
Here's the cast painting - sorry, I haven't taken a decent photo of it yet. I'm lazy and currently it's still at the school's exhibition in Villa Bardini.
But here are some close-ups...
Your cast painting really captures how the light rakes around the form. Great work!
aye, great updates !
especially "spartacus" is super ^^ I like especially the soldier, who is dozed off, leaning against the cross (I do understand that right, don't I?) I love such details
the last oil-piece is also very cool (i am just starting to realize the real importance and meaning of "kernschatten" , what i hadn't done before, and it's effect is apparent in the painting.
and i like the figure studies, more of them!
your painting really captures the texture of the figure, really impressed, very inspirational
Love the life drawings!
You have some very nice qualities to your work.
Chris, thank you!
Denoir, thanks what exactly is "Kernschatten", do you mean the reflected light inside shadow shapes? I'm maybe familiar with the idea behind it, but haven't heard the word before.
Ostroponis, thank you
oren, thank you! much appreciated
Finally got a decent image of the 2nd cast painting. (I'm too lazy to take photos, haha XD)
Oil painting from life. exercise in monochrome.
Right now I'm already painting the figure in color! yay!
edit: extra photos. Would've taken more photos but the exhibition space was more crowded than a can of sardines D:

The last two paintings are really impressive.....I was amazed when I looked at the close up from the painting of the figure....wonderful how you captured the surface texture and all....keep up your great work!
great update, awesome as usual , thankyou
Oh and the final painting turned out gorgeous, im going to go painting now cause im shit ha
Thanks so much, guys and girls
Caro/Cyprinus, I didn't know you're here too! Awesomeness!
Gotta check out your sketchbook
Here's some new sketchbook pages (copies after old master drawings - I'm using "Anatomy Lessons from the Great Masters" by Robert Hale, awesome book!)
And a copy after a drawing by Mario Fortuny, a project from Angel Academy. It's not officially finished, but after so many weeks working on it, I can't stand to look at this damn thing anymore and declared it done. Whatever the teacher says, I won't continue with this.
(medium: charcoal on Umbria paper, roughly A3 size)
Soon there will be a historic soccer match (calcio storico) in Piazza Santa Croce in Florence, and I'm looking forward to it. Usually I'm not a sports fan but I've never seen anything like this before so I really want to attend! Basically it's a bunch of guys kicking around a ball and beating up each other in renaissance costumes. XD Will try to take photos!
edit: WTF imageshack...
