    I love your art works! We don't get to see much traditional stuff nowadays, so it's really something that you're so passionate about it

    hey marlissa,
    you have some great work here. You post pretty frequently and your looking to improve.

    You have already received lots of advice, but have you ever tried using a mirror when your drawing from life or ref. compare your drawing an the real thing (or photo) and you might be able to see things that look out of place.

    keep working yo butt off

    Tnx guys!

    NoŽ: I try to do the same thing. That's why I put so much effort in this 'wytches brew' song assignment for 'Beeld & Concept'.

    hunchback: yeah, I get what you mean. I should do that more often.
    Maybe I should do this week every day one self portrait from mirror?
    Yeah, I'm going to do that. That's good practise

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Maybe I should wait with uploading stuff until I have more to show...
    But I was so happy with new reactions from people, and I forgot to post this one earlier (it isn't finished yet, but I like it already to be honest )
    It's from Bernini's 'David'.

    The scanner doesn't work and the battery of my camera is charging, so I can't post the posemaniacs I did today.

    OOOH Love it!
    The technique is wonderful! White pastel or chalk on black paper? Should try that some time ^^

    One thing on this one: it looks like you made the face (eyes, nose, mouth) a bit too large for the head size? but comparing it to the pictures of that statue it doesn't look like a lot too big I love the variation of tones that you got, and the contrast with the dark paper! great stuff hihi Will reply to your mail tomorrow haha sleep now ^^

    Love
    Marleen.

    Very good progress!

    Try and use fewer, more complete lines in your sketching. It's a lot easier to think about a line, where it beings and ends, how it connects and disconnects, its weight, the ways it twists and so on, and then draw it once you understand it than it is to draw several lines or lots of little fuzzy dashes. It's always easier to erase and redraw 1 whole line than it is many! This will also push you to think about what you're drawing more, and after a while of practice it will all happen in a second!

    Hope that helps some. Good work so far!

    Really nice traditional paintings. Love the colours and contrasts! totally respect people who work entirely traditional. No matter how good a digital painting may be, it's always more satisfying finishing the physical painting. *thumbs-up*

    Yay! A lot reactions! You people made my day!

    JailHouseRock2: tnx Matt!

    NoŽ: Haha tnx! it's done with soft white colour pencil.
    I struggled several hours (with a lot of breaks) with the face, until I didn't care anymore and left it this way.

    nakatoni: hehe, the quick ones are really hard for me to do, because I'm a very stubborn perfectionist... but they are a really good practise!

    AmontilladoAg: ahw thanks! That made me smile

    IanE: That's a good tip (though i've heard it before.. but I don't listen to it I guess)! I'll try to do my best with my selfportrait this evening .

    Vloth: Really nice of you to drop by! If you're going to do some real life animal sketches too, I'd recommend drawing with ink or somethin. It's harder I guess, but it worked for me the best

    bigus_dickus: Tnx! I don't do any digital art because everyone does it (that doesn't mean that I don't like it though, some people can make really incredible things), and I like the craft work, mixing the colours, the paint on the canvas, the pencil strokes...



    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    Very, VERY small update. I finished this *cough* sketch tonight...

    I saw some Mucha art last week and it inspired me. Thought it would be fun to copy the pose from some piece and translate it to my style.
    I wanted to make it more realistic, and I'm going to do a painting (in blue-tones I think) when my evaluation week at school is over (next weekend ).

    I really love to make things with the theme paganism or magic or something like that. I feel attracted to that and I have tons of ideas to work out.

    Attachment 631704

    Mucha ref.

    I made some changes, for example the toes and all the shadows (and the drapery isn't exacly as in mucha's work).
    Don't mind the blurry right corner. I was too lazy to start the computer downstairs, scan the thing etc.


    EDIT: the head is waaaaaaaaaaaay to small... I'm not going to change/improve it in this drawing. I guess it's something to work on in the painting.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    The selfportraits i've been doing this week will be posted tomorrow, posemaniacs too.

    oooh *hearts*
    I love it ^^ Didn't even notice the small head until you pointed it out haha.
    I really like how you used the Mucha art as an inspiration but didn't just copy it lovely!
    I'm very interested to see how you paint this

    Love
    Marleen.

    Aahw tnx l0stinth0ughts, NoŽ & MeTaL-Mike !


    I'm really tired so I just say what I have to say.

    Tried to scan my daily selfportraits from last week, and posemaniacs, but after one drawing, the scanner flipped and didn't work anymore.
    My brother borrowed my camera, so can't take pictures of them right now.

    I don't really want to start with my last selfportrait from this week (drawn today), cause I think it's the best I made.
    Posting the last one first makes the other sketches/drawings even worse than they already are -_-'

    But hey... I'm really tired and have to wash my (pierced today) nose piercing before I go to sleep, brush teeth (I'm sooo tired, just want to crash on my bed). So I stop nagging now.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Edit: Oh, I forgot that I already uploaded my Artis Zoo sketches from today, before lenting my camera to my bro (bah, don't have energy to correct my english).

    Done with ink, in 10 - 15 min. (except for the alligator, I think that was 20 min) some of them are done in 1 min or 2 min. .

    Made this in 2 hours I guess. DONE FROM MIRROR! Yes, I'm actually kinda proud.
    I noticed I drew my face too long every day, so tried to pay attention to that in this one. My face looks to small, or my eyes too big, but actually that was really what I saw in the mirror.
    It's weird how your face looks different each time in different light!
