    It's great that you've been doing so many observational studies! Keep experimenting with color, and really try to push your values - your most successful paintings have been the ones where you pushed the contrast and really observed the values, like the onion paintings and color studies of people. Also, keep in mind how you use hard and soft edges in your paintings, because your brushstrokes tend to all have the same softness, and it makes your subjects appear a little blurry and undefined. Use varying hardness as a way to emphasize things and lead the viewer's eye around the painting. Keep up the great work!

    cgaddict -> Thanks, dude! Trying to be as versatile as possible. I used Mudbox for that.
    Sadako-xD -> Thanks! Haha, don't get me started on chocolate. . .
    Tuesday -> Thanks a lot for the crits! You're pretty dead on with all of those. I will definitely be keepin an eye out for those! Thanks again!

    Sorry for the giant hiatus here. I've been cranking out lessons in Maya which are all pretty boring so I haven't been making as many studies or work lately. But I have been working on an older painting that still needs some love. --> ( http://www.illustrationandrew.com/ho...SCENE01WEB.jpg ) The gray, cloudy blob behind her was intended to be an anonymous crowd buuuuuttttt, it's a blob. So I'm working on painting an army of figures to create some chaos as only a crowd can. They're all a bit sloppy yet, but I'll tighten them.

    PeteJ ->Thanks!

    Three more for the pile. Like the other ones, still a bit rough but I think I've got enough to start reworking the painting these are for. Updates on that later.

    Now that I finally painted enough figures, I could start on the actual painting! Hooray! This one is already a huge step up from the original. At least in terms of it's comp.

    At any rate, any C&C would be much appreciated! It still has a long way to go!

    I love your sketches, and especially the emotion in your last painting

    spiralpen -> Thanks!

    Some more figure studies. I haven't been posting these quite as much as I've been doing them, mainly because it seems to get a bit redundant after a while but I'm gonna post these a bit more often.

    I've got an oil painting in the works as of this evening and hopefully I'll get some more work done on the digi painting from a couple posts up.

    Peace

    Here's some of today's work. More sketchy sketches. More news on the oil painting later. Mostly when I feel not lazy enough to take a picture of it.

    Got some master studies here: portrait from Velasquez's the Water Carrier and Bouguereau's Gabrielle. Finished up the drawing from before and also have my first sketches for the ultra B movie redux of Street Fighter's Sakura for the Brawl contest over at polycount.com . It's a sweet tourney, btw! I'll have some more on that character concepting later. There's a pretty big storm heading through my area, aka the east coast so I probably won't get around to it until tomorrow night.

    Very nice indeed! I think the faces are my favourite, I like how you surrounded them with a darker shade to accentuate the highlights, I think I can learn a thing or two from this SB, keep up the good work!

    Invalid User -> Thanks!
    Didn't get quite so much done this week. I had a lot of things that needed to be taken care of in my life so hopefully this week will be clearer. I started the color portion of this painting from before. Any crits on color would be fantastic. Color is definitely still one of my weakest points. .

    Finished this up today. The colors are still off but I'm not quite sure what to do about it yet.
