    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.

    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 :] "

    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!

    Whadup, it's mau, the guy that was hanging out with Hans this morning.
    I won't give you a technical comment since my skills are not that good and you probably have plenty of informative feedback from the academy guys already.. (i realize that this will probably tell you more about my stylistical preferences rather than your technical abilities).
    My favorite pick from this page are this
    http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/9621/thaidos.jpg
    for the strong colors and the lovely design of the flowers/background, for what is worth the figure looks pretty solid to me and i can definitely see the influence of gesture drawings in the way you approached it, i think it looks pretty right and it's an engaging image that may be worth some time spent on

    and this
    http://img223.imageshack.us/img223/8697/vannzza.jpg

    I think the pose is eye-catching and really admire your palette selection for those skin tones, nice green/blue shades (and the pink is not "too obvious"), it's bit reminiscent of linda bergkvist, isn'it? I'm not into that kind of stuff but i can sort of see what you're aiming for, pretty good.
    (I think there may be something funky goin' on with that left arm/wrist foreshortening but you probably know already)
    I also picked this picture because of its darkness, just a matter or taste really but i think you try could adding a very subtle bit of "grittiness" to your images, see what it happens (i know hans will strongly disagree with me here )...if you hadn't written it, I would have thought that you were a bouguereau fan!
    Oh, i think I saw a portrait of Susan, am I crazy?
    Well, i think that's it... See ya!

    destinyapocalypse: teşekkür ederim

    Lostlimeturtle: thank you!

    Mau, thanks a lot! Hehe, there's really a portrait of Susan =)
    Actually, I learn a lot from Bouguereau, even though I'm not a fan, I admire his technique and skill.
    Your sketchbook rocks, by the way. Ci vediamo!

    tokotewhero, thank you!


    Here's the first part of a skintone painting tutorial I made about a week ago. Someday I'll kick myself in the butt to finish the 2nd and 3rd part also.

    (Disclaimer: this is just "my" way to learn/paint/observe, and I can't guarantee that it'll make things "click" for everybody; I'm not a teacher after all and still have SO much to learn!)
