    Interwebs is back! It's been so hectic that I kinda put off getting the web up in my new apartment from some extra time... It was nice having no chance to go to the web and just chill. Actually if I didn't have bills to pay I probably wouldn't have gotten the internet connection up for a couple weeks.

    Frivilous fanart time! I'm sure it doesn't come off as a surprise to anyone that Skullmeramon is my favorite Digimon, and when I was packing my books I found this Finnish Lobo comic, and combined with the recent Digimon movie review by the Nostalgia Critic, I wanted combine my favorite Digimon with that sort of absurd musculature. The inking didn't go exactly "grungy" as I'd wanted but... Probably will colour this at some point.

    And here's some of the painting course things. We're doing plein air (I guess) and just try to get the feel of the paints and work on using colours. The first four were about using vertical and horizontal brush strokes and using either dull or bright colours, and the two after that about getting some feel of distance. Today we did some shadow/overlap paintings but of course I forgot my camera.

    Well, the course is over. None of the paintings actually look like what I was trying to paint, but it was pretty fun anyway and made me appreciate good brushwork.

    I'm trying to avoid turning up here like the proverbial bad penny but those paintings in posts #663 and #664 are amazing so I had to comment.

    Really nice impressionistic effect and atmosphere. I love what you did with your brushstrokes and the colours, and was wondering what you used to paint them? Acrylics or oils? They also reminded me that I really should try loosening up in my own painting. I've never studied proper painting techniques so don't really know anything about brushstrokes, but I can tell that confidence definitely makes a difference there.

    If you've got any more, or any suggestions, I'd love to see them.

And it's really weird how the paint reacts depending on how you angle strokes since the colours blend really easily.
    Basically most of the paintings went like this:

    Overall I can't give much suggestions since these are my first oils in.. ten years or something and we didn't have much theory in the course, we got shown some examples of what we were about to do (like we were shown some more looser work of Monet for examples on the brush strokes and use of colours, since the course wasn't exactly about painting, but using colour) and then we were thrown outside to paint so all of these were really done while learning on the fly.
    I do plan on doing more at some point after I manage to gather all required gear and find a place where I can dispose of all the turpentine and paints (like there's a center for those things somewhere here).

    Hey Tinybird, just wanted to say I've been a fan of your work for quite a while now. Loving this storybook series. The colours are really eye-catching. I don't think I've ever seen oil paintings this clean, but then again maybe I have and just assumed they were a different medium.

    Ha ha, most likely, I mean check these things: http://jamesgurney.com/site/images/history-and-science and most of classic paintings are made with oils and I ain't Leonardo Da Vinci or Rembrant yet ;D

    Whoops, guess I used the wrong word. Not "clean" so much as cartoony and bright. Just the sharp transitions from one colour to the other is something I don't think I've seen with oil paintings before. I'm so used to seeing them used for realistic paintings, so this is an interesting change. I can see similiar techniques in that link you posted though, so it's probably all on me. Great link, by the way. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi there my mate

    I like what you have done with the place, but I have to say that there are strange things happening in your head buddy!! The blisters on the arm image set had me wondering for a while if you needed some more sanity batteries!

    the comic is coming along though and the story is kind of interesting too, good luck with that mate.

    ok enough rambling, all the best mate and I look forward to the next batch of stuff and hopefully I will be able to crit something, because its all good so far!
    A great kind hearted lumbering bullock

    Haha, excellent cartoon. I can totally identify with that.

    Thanks for getting back to me re the type of paint, and yeah, that wet on wet look is something specific to oils that I loved the times I used them, but also hated because of how easily they do blend.

    I guess it's about finding the right technique and balance between layering and blending, and you seem to have captured that really well in your pieces. Beginners luck maybe, but I think it's more likely you have a natural knack for them, and not being afraid to pile on the layers means you're confident too. I'll be keeping an eye out to see if you do any more.

    P.S. Thats interesting that the course didn't give you much in the way of instruction re brush strokes. It reminds me of the way I learned at college. They gave us projects to work on but mostly left us to our own devices when it came to actual use of mediums. I just figured I'd picked shitty courses but maybe thats a general thing - leaving people to learn as they go. From the point of view of a self-learner now, I can appreciate it but at the time, it was kind of frustrating.

    Yeah, most short courses in here don't really work with on showing things... Which might be because I usually go to beginner/starter classes and the teachers there are either of the "artistic" type (as in they work on expressing stuff rather than actually showing the subject which in less polite terms mean they can't draw) or want the students to just start enjoying the painting/drawing without putting additional pressure of things all the students might not grasp. Which is something I too find frustrating because I'd like the teachers to point out and show things I haven't figured out on my work myself yet.
    After we had established the skill level of all people in the painting course, the teacher did go bit further with me with the brushstrokes, especially since I struggled on creating the water surface.

    There's this " draw 30 Monster Girls" list thing going around in Tumblr, so I decided to do some myself since I'm not really inspired to do other stuff.
