    An "abstract" oil painting I painted in 2007 - it was a commission.


    A few color concepts I did beforehand (in Photoshop).

    Great abstract painting, remains me a lot of William Turner!
    Perhaps try to add some dark areas here and there to increase the saturation.

    Keep doing anatomy studies!!

    Xaya, thank you I'm actually glad you mention William Turner, since he's my favorite artist of all time, and I aimed this piece to look somewhat inspired by him.
    The funny thing is that when this painting was shown at a group exhibition in Düsseldorf, someone mentioned that it certainly had to be inspired by the work of my highschool art teacher Jürgen Jansen, which couldn't be further from the truth. His paintings are abstract too, but then, totally different.

    Someone on another forum (Pixelbrush) asked how I painted the curls, so here I reconstructed the steps:
    No big tricks, just lots of airbrush

    I like the over all feeling you got going on here. Feels like you're very dedicated to this.
    But there's something about your faces that makes me wonder. They feel very flat to me. Maybe you should try to paint and draw elderly people? They often have more defined lines and I think that could be good for you.
    Keep practicing!

    Cheers!

    Death of Giuliano
    Tools: Photoshop 7, Wacom Intuos tablet


    Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, April 26, 1478:
    Lorenzo de' Medici, governor of Florence, and his younger brother Giuliano were attending High Mass, unaware of the fact that a conspiracy had been set up with the aim to kill them. Two assassini disguised as monks eventually appeared during Mass, killing Giuliano de' Medici. Lorenzo got wounded but he could escape with the help of his friends.

    I know the dagger/sword looks kinda bent, but: I wanted it to be a knife or dagger (or just a very small sword). And I wanted to show the rushed movement by which it is pulled out of the victim (yeah, very gory, I know...) It's supposed to be a short weapon, the lines following it indicating the speed. I messed a little here.

    hey Kristina,
    you got some really inspiring color sketches in here.can't critique anything on colors or shading style as it's looking excellent. just keep studying your anatomy as some of the figures seem to have skewed headforms or slightly distorted hands. and some of you figures could use more diversity in their faces. they look too similar, but I can already see improvement.
    love "1925" and the last two sketches from life. you should do more of those.

    Thanks a bunch, monotony I'm aiming to make the "slightly distorted" into a "not distorted", i.e. I gotta improve my anatomy in general.

    Kristina, I've seen your work on GFXartist, I really like the way you capture your colors, all of which have a dreamy feel to it. Glad to see you working on your anatomy. As for the distortion, a solid line foundation in your paintings could help a lot, and also perhaps less attention to detail and more to form. Keep up the good effort!

    Farsh, thank you You're right, painting works best only if one has strong drawing skills. I'm working on those, making lots of drawings from life.
    (The link to your sketchbook in your sig does not work, by the way)


    Recently I bought this book and it is really good stuff. The author (who is an awesome painter) shows the progress of a figure drawing from life and advises to start the drawing by "enveloping" the figure in a simple shape consisting of lines and corners. He says "You'll save time if you learn to do so"; me thinks "o really"?, and tries it. It works quite well. I'll get accustomed to it either way It can only be good to try something.

    Nice stuffs here - keep it up the hair and flower on this last one looks great. For your life drawing - look for shapes in the figure (much like U've done on these last 2) to construct it and combining this with a good knowledge of anatomy will make your life drawings great.
    I like your colours a lot too

    Really nice progress. #67 is my favorite, the skin tone is well organized and I can almost feel it's transparency. The life drawing is great ~ somehow I feel it works better on mid-tone paper than you did on white paper, love the line work though.

    It should always be bore in one's mind that he must be responsible for his life........

    kidult, thanks (no, that sketch doesn't make your ass look fat, seriously)

    atlantik, thank you! =)

    UnSharpened, thank you!

    Towarlock, merci

    RC_Koala, thanks a bunch

    Flaskpost, that book is really a good investition, especially if you do life drawing! And if not, it'll inspire you to try it. Thanks


    This is probably my best finished painting so far, although it's almost a year old. Soon I gotta start making a finished painting, haven't worked on any in about three months.
    Title: Death of Salome



    Story:
    Salome - in the Bible - was the daughter of Herodias who asked her to dance in front of the king so she could demand the head of St John the Baptist as a reward - which she did. The severed head of St John was presented to her on a silver plate.
    And this is how Salome herself died. According to the legend, she was dancing on ice when the ice broke and she fell into the cold water. Her mother Herodias tried to save her, but all her efforts were vain. The sharp pieces of ice eventually cut Salome’s neck and thus severed her head from her body. So she died just like the prophete whom she had brought to death.
    True or not, I found the legend fascinating and painted my own version of it.

    Beautiful studies! I like when you choose a palette and you work with the same color spectrum (excuse my bad speaking)!
    Nice!
