    Post 681 is great. LOVE that perspective of the dragon in flight. You really sell that sense of great height.

    Keep up the hard work.

    My toilet is infested with silverfish... but not just any fish, but stupid silverfish. No self-preservation sense.

    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

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:
    Attachment 1521519

    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).
    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.

    Ha ha, no worries, I haven't yet dropped to a Hellraiser dimension, I just should have used sunblock and now there's dead skin coming off from my arms.

    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.
