    Jeez, your portraits and faces are amazing!!! And is it true you are only 19 years old (it said on the first page)? And already so much talent. Makes me curious were you are in 10 years.

    Groetjes, Rene

    Dromer: Hahahah! OMG, that really made my day, thank you .
    Yes, I'm 19 . It's too bad i don't have much time to update my SB every day, especially now I'm busy with 3 different projects (marta dahlig, the ireland landscape scene, portraits).
    Thanks so much for visiting !

    Cerasela: thanks for the tips! They are useful .

    Today I wanted to go further with my oracle from Marta Dahlig painting... but I first have to go to the police office.
    My younger brother has his birthday today, and he finally got the phone he already wants since january. Het got it last friday for several reasons.
    But today is his birthday and yesterday he sat near the supermarket with some friends. The one minute he turned of the music of his phone, and the next the phone was gone. From his jeanspocket.
    He was soooo freaked out yesterday, I had to help him. We searched every inch of where he had rode with his bike and such.
    It's obviously stolen, because it's too much of a coincidence some guy wanted to try my brothers board (which was in front of him) and touched his arm to keep his balance.... and the next second my bro's phone was gone.
    It's so sad, especially because my mum gave him a memory cart thingie for his phone this morning. She doesn't know it yet.

    i don't know why I tell this here, because I know nobody cares. But I guess it's all i can think of at the moment.
    Maybe I continue my painting this evening, though I doubt it because I have hockey practice also .

    Haha.

    A few months ago, I started painting the Oracle of Marta Dahlig to practice my painting skills. I wanted to see how far I could come.
    I made the mistake of painting it on paintingpaper taped to a board. The colors weren't deep and stuff.
    So I did it over on canvas, with better paint and stuff.
    I think it's better now, I'm a bit proud of it, though I hate her hand.
    I continue with her other hand tonight.

    I don't know if it's something from this forum, but I can't see the pictures in any of the topics .

    I did a still life yesterday, couldn't bring myself to finish the cloth though.
    I really hate it, I think I should do more drapery .
    It was done at painting paper, rough paper. I think I could've done the different materials better at smoother paper.

    New crappy stuff because I'm at home every day, alone.
    I don't feel like painting so that's why i update these horrible things.

    I'm going to do some models now, maybe that will turn out better.

    I like the oracle piece a lot, too bad the photograph of it isnīt so good. Would love to see a complete body version. A few things look a bit odd, but still I like it...

    The Nienke portrait, the freckly kid portrait and the landscape in post #209 are my favourite works here - your preference fro graphite and the human figure really pays off! And also your acrylics are quite amazing, I have no understanding of them whatsoever.
    I see some of the resemblance with my own work, but do not accept the claim that I'm better!
    Other people pointed out where you need improvement, I agree with them - no need to repeat what you know, I have no new critic to bring to the table so far! But I'll check this topic regularly, just to see when I will

    10thWay: thanks for stopping by !
    ariel_medel: hey, yes the picture is not so good, but the painting is just this part. What do you think is odd? Maybe I can change it.
    Ariel9: Hey, thanks for stopping by my SB .

    This is my first en very LAST digital painting ever.
    It took me a whole day (because I only have a mouse) and, though I kinda like the result (because it looks very much like the photo), I don't think I will do this ever again.
    Painting with photoshop feels so fake and the colours are so much more easy to find. You have a palette which you can change in one seconde just by adjusting it with one click... ugh.

    Before I offend someone: I don't think digital painting is easy, I just think I find it more challenging to make my own colours with real paint.

    Hey Marlisa,
    i agree with you on your opinion, i feel the same about painting but both are interesting to work in , donīt say the last may be you like to do it later on I like the girly colors in the digital painting !

    Cool you like the quick room study, I did it in 3 parts and my mum said it looked like it was drawn by a 12 year old... I know the perspective is a bit off, but ok

    I was thinking about painting the SP with girly colours, but then I decided I wanted to paint another thing that's been on my mind last months.
    It is called Lughnasadh. That's a celebrationday on 1st of august that the farmers can do the first harvest.
    I love nature and I think people don't see those things anymore like harvest and stuff. They only think about themselves and their busy lives.

    I thought is was interesting what you said about picking colours digitally vs with real paint. I find I have the opposite problem, strangely enough. Anywhoo.... Really a very nice sketchbook you have here. Your graphite portraits are lovely.

    Lol it was in 10 min.. you should ask your mother to draw the room in 10 minutes ;P!!
    If you do more room drawings , you will get better with the lines ,it needs just practice and concentration, so your mother wonīt complain anymore
    Harvest ,Countrymen and Nature themes , are really interesting , i was in August in the art museum in Timisoara and i saw the works of Corneliu Baba , i was so impressed how he painted the countryside with his people, especially on the emotional and exaggerated side .
    Actually i found some links with painters , you may find interesting too:

    Haya Marlisa

    Enjoyed looking though here as ever, really nice studies! This ones great - http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...4&d=1252509060- Infact all your pencil works really porgresed

    I know what you mean about digital, it can sometimes be like that,but this self portrait is awesome! For a first digi, and with a frigin' mouse! Haha, if anything it was worth it to see your pretty face

    Love the last landscape painting though, is it oils? or acrilic? Looks cool either way, great colour blending in the sky!!

    And thanks a bunch for stopping by my thread, appreciate it!
    Hope alls well between the tulips as well

    Cerasela: Thanks soo much! I didn't know all the artists, their art is very inspiring!

    JailHouseRock2:Haha, I'm roflmao right now
    I don't really see progress in my latest drawings, so thanks for pointing that out . The last landscape is done with acrylics, I actually did a cloudy sky first but it turned out horrible so I painted over it, hehe.
    I'm fine between the tulips ... altough there aren't much tulips around here anymore in this time of the year haha.

    James Wolf: thank you
    Dromer: Dankje!
    miycko: haha thanks for visiting ^^. I think it's important to vary in what you do, otherwise you get bored and you'll only progress in one subject .
    thegrayslayer: thanks Slayer .

    I woke up today in some kind of nostalgic mood. Maybe I was sick of all the portraits and faces and people, because I started drawing old buildings from my city of birth: AMSTERDAMMMM

    And of course, a few farmhouses and a windmill, because they are cool too (but you won't find them in Amsterdam... you'd better try in the north of the country) and very Dutch.

    Couldn't stop, ended up doing faces again -_-'

    It looks like crap but I think I understand the basics better.
    De ugly ones are from mind, the others from ref.

    I did a portrait of my cousin Anuschka. She drew a picture of herself but it was a bit off.
    I'm not very happy with this one, because of the values. But I thought I could post it here anyway.

    jatherip: Tnx!


    Allright, I've got my wacom Bamboo tablet. I got it from a friend of mine, because I designed a logo for her company.
    It wasn't something I always wanted, but now I have it, I'm soooo happy with it! It's awesome.
    I practised with that thing today, and used a photo as a ref.
    I'm not going to make much digital art, because I still love traditional art more... but I think it might be handy when I have some concept in mind and don't want to waste much paint.

    I drew a lot these days, but the scanner is broken, so I'll upload that tomorrow.

    Heey Marlisa ^_^

    sorry for not replying in here earlier..
    I just have a quick thing to say about the digital thing. I think that your approach on the previous digital (with the mouse) was better, because you were working with 100% opacity (I think) then.. Right now you're using the opacity so low that the results become a little blurry sometimes. Which brushes are you using? And which program?
    I know photoshop is rather confusing with the brush settings, you can call me if you want to know something specific about that program

    I don't really know what you already know so I'm not going to give you all this advice that you might not need haha!

    I think it's great that you got a tablet, not to replace traditional paint, but it's nice for quick sketches, no need to get dirty

    Love
    Marleen

    P.S. I copied some links for you:
