    Artem's Sketchbook [some nudity]

    Hey, thought I'd start me a sketchbook on here. To start this off here is a black and white study. I know it is a bad habit to paint photos but I saw this one and just had to paint it. I thought I would be a good study of movement and a good exercise in working with loose brush strokes. I would like to thank the beautiful model Alex and photographer David Nuttall for letting me do this. Please check her gallery out if you get a chance:

    Hi Atem,

    I just started a sketchbooks me-self. Just thought I'd say hi. Nice work, the brush you are using really helps define the form. I like how the face and hand stand above the rest of the image with their polish and rendering.

    Hi Artem,

    that one is very good and far beyond my skill, wow! I absolutely agree with batty on hands and face, just one remark: I think the hair and the cheek are "too similar", it almost looks like a beard, I assume that's not intended. Apart from that, the brush is also cool. What software is that?

    Q.

    Heloo,
    The painting is quite good, the only slight problem i se is the bottm of your girly that lacks shade and the prespective on it seems strange, that's all.
    hope to see more of your work

    Hey guys thanks for the comments. This was done in painter x.

    Yes Feil, I see what you're talking about. I guess that's one of the drawbacks from copying a picture. I just painted what I saw in the picture.

    Just noticed what you were saying about perspective. The far leg does look a little smaller. Wow...fresh eyes do help.

    Only a tiny bit, but still great use of contrast!

    Watercolors

    I have recently taken up watercolors and thought I'd post some stuff I've done recently. Please feel free to leave comments or critiques, as I am just learning this new medium and would love feedback.

    The beach paintings are the most recent and I did them on a larger format than my scanner could handle, so I had to scan them in pieces (you can see a line through the middle of some where I erased out the merged lines in photoshop).
    The beach painting with the two figures standing on the sand with a building in the distance to the left was done from memory so I later realized some obvious problems with it.

    The small painting with the book and the xbox game was a pure gouache sketch I did last year sometime and I just thought I'd throw it in. I was really in the mood to paint that day and I thought that instead of painting something that I had set up, I would just paint something exactly as it was laying in my apartment....can you guess the xbox game?

    I included a study I did from a Sargent watercolor. Sargent is really what got me into watercolors and for me he sets the bar.

    The other painting is a quick sketch of a wood pile near my parents house. I was really frustrated while painting this because I felt that I wasn't capturing the effect of the light patterns I was seeing but viewing it later I was actually impressed with my efforts.

    Thanks it, thanks for checking them out!

    Quick Study of Isaak Levitan

    Finally got a copy of PS last weekend..already in love. PS is such a breath of fresh air after 6 years of frustration with Painter. Here's a quick 35 min sketch of one of Isaak Levitan's landscapes.

    Really dig the color choices in your paintings!

    Sink into syncronicity, thinking in links. Drinking ink, crinkling blank foreheads and squinting and blinking at things

    Stiff Life of desk

    Felt like doing something from life but was too lazy to get up and set something up...so I just looked down and started painting.

    Sketch

    Sketch that started out as a pencil scribble that I scanned then worked on top of in Photoshop.

    Dig the watercolors and your landscapes are very expressive. Good start

    Post-apocalyptic sketch

    Speedpainting that I tried to carry further. I could feel the life of it being sucked out the more finish I tried to add...

    robot sketch

    Here's a sketch I did during my lunch break. I plan on refining and perhaps doing a sculpt.
