    really enjoy the rough quality and atmosphere in your work. I feel like some things could be realized to a fuller extent, but it's going to require you to figure out how to push the forms, lighting, and values in your stuff in a way that works for you in keeping with the overall feel of your work. I know that may not sound very helpful, but I think a lot of learning comes from self-discovery (as well as learning from others), and as long as you are always trying to push things further, you're on the right track :]

    wow, so many comments!

    hey all,

    sorry for the delay. I've been drawing as usual, but I've dedicated a lot of time to thinking, mostly about composition... I still need a couple of weeks to wrap things up. It's also a bit embarrassing for me to post anything, because my artwork still isn't quite "finished"...even though there are a few pieces that I've been working on frequently when I'm not painting for my next gallery show (which starts on the 5th of July).

    ccsears thanks for the great comment!! I need to read your post again with more thought when I have the time. I'll probably contact you with a few questions about art in general in the near future, if that's alright to you... your post made me think about lots of things and hey, don't hesitate to ramble in my SB, it's a pleasure to read!

    soros thanks, I will!

    Peetaer "never sell yourself short!" that's the best piece of advice I've gotten for a while. I'll keep that in mind! and yeah, point cleared you're always welcome here to share your thoughts!

    Parsakoira as you wish..........

    hunchback thanks, that's my intention!

    Tom Fenton yeah, I should experiment more with that style. I can't paint too well yet, though, so I partly disagree about my traditional skills, heh. but I'm working on it! thanks

    Mister Dark gracias, I appreciate it!

    bharat thanks!

    LisandroG hmm...that's some abstract advice, although you do have a point. do you mean I should depict form so that they enhance the composition more efficiently? do you have any examples to give? I be glad and curious to hear them

    dleoblack thanks

    so...here's a random update.

    Hey, sorry I guess I should be more clear..when I say forms I mean how you define the shapes of your subject matter, for example in this last post with the skull spider i think you did a good job showing the form of the legs and the shapes coming out of it. One way to help define the form is to push your values ranges further. Looking through your stuff I see that you have a lot of variety of middle-range values, but I feel like you could some some lighter lights and darker darks in there once in a while. Sometimes that is not necessary though, it is completely dependant on the lighting, environment, or what kind of mood you want, etc

    I hope I was more helpful this time :]

    hey folks

    Traveler that's good to hear, thanks!

    Nenad heheh thanks

    dU5K thanks! do you have any examples to give on what I should improve in my digital work?

    LisandroG yeah well, I feel like I'm pretty aware of how to apply value, and it's true that values change immensely in different environments (say, on a cloudy day it's all about mid-value play, and pretty much no cast shadows). but aye, I should experiment with values more... I just think the problem isn't about factual presentation of the forms & subject, but more about how the use of values make the viewer feel. I'll look into it!

    kojot thanks, I appreciate it.

    quick update. finished painting for a gallery show

    Huge fan of the last painting. Is it traditional or digital? I love how simple you've kept it. From the composition, to the colour palette, to your brush strokes. Very nice work. One thing I just stick out to me is the pathway leading down the left side of the frame. I think if you brightened it up (made it a lighter tone), then it would strengthen your composition. The reason I say this is because the values in the lower half of your piece are all about the same. If you bump up the tone (made it lighter) then it would create a nice contrast with the grass and trees, and it would sync up nicely with the tone of the sky.

    Hope this crit helps. Keep them coming

    Peetaer that crit is spot-on, thanks for that! it's purely traditional, oils to be exact. now that you've mentioned the pathway, it kind of bugs me too. I'd fix it if I hadn't already sold it for 220 euros, heheh. but that's a great crit, I'll think about it.

    Parsakoira


    mini update. some stuff from the gallery show (which isn't too marvellous, but a good way of making some quick money), and some watercolor technique practice. plus an oil painting WIP, the composition just doesn't work arrgh! but eventually I'll get it right!

    pretzel thanks! just try to follow form with your lines to make form as clear as possible, design your shapes well (silhouette, shadow areas...). when you start to draw, first create a mega quick sketch that defines the proportions and the overall design (this can be a simple form, like an oval...or simple combinations of forms...anything you can come up with), so you'll have some kind of frame to build on top of - you can create the sketch using a pencil or just straight pen and ink (I'm so lazy/bold that I usually just use a pen for this). play with contrasts, for example defined versus abstract, etc. quick ink drawing makes you think a lot in terms of design and composition more than accuracy and correctness! ::edit:: I use an EDDING 1255 calligraphy pen, the tip is as wide as I could find. some ink work is just pure liquid ink, which is diluted with water and spread with a normal watercolor brush. for pen stuff I might also use markers to bring in some different values.


    one more drawing before going to bed. pencil and watercolor. had to shoot it at an angle to do it more justice. (that's a joe weatherly book by the way!)

    pretzel thanks, I intend to...

    Cameli I checked your sb, cool stuff!

    kischi wow! I personally don't know if I deserve that just yet, but big thanks!!

    prsnsweeney that's a big compliment. I, too, am glad that there's been some progress over the years you should try landscapes, they're somewhat easy to digest because it's mainly just about composition more than function and proportion.

    I just ordered Richard Schmid's Alla Prima!! It should arrive during the next couple of weeks. I'm thrilled!

    here's some sketchbook stuff from today...

    hey man. grrrrrreat works you have here.

    getting back to "finishing", not sure if you've read it or not (you probably have, but...) but i would toooootally recommend the Loomis book "Eye of the Painter". tons in there about drawing philosophy that really has helped me in "picture-making" and stuff. his "Creative Illustration" as well, that helped to a certain extent, but i think that's more on the side of technique rather than philosophy.

    to know when you're finished, you kinda have to have a goal in mind from the start. art is visual communication; therefore, you need to figure out what it is that you want to communicate. once you have accomplished that goal, once you have "said what you want to say", you are "finished". like ccsears said, you need to do just enough to communicate that idea...any less is "unfinished"...any more is "overworked". the more you work in this way, the better you'll be able to decide when you have actually "finished" a piece. i hope this helps...g'luck man. and even if you don't "finish", keep up the pretty drawings.
