    Looking good

    I usually have to scan in my paintings one half at a time and past them together in photoshop. That might do the trick

    I like the minimal coloring on the first one. On the second one the invading colors flatten the picture to my eyes, although I sense you wanted to achieve some kind of softening, in which case I would expect more subtle hues on the surfaces. Keep training!

    those water colors are awesome!

    sometimes i like to do a sketch with india ink and then a wash with water color. i could see that looking really awesome with your style.

    tobba:
    indeed. should have scanned in 2 parts and pasted
    didn't think it was nessicary when scanning, 'cause I didnt use all the paper anyway.
    avocado: thanks man!

    Leo: well, hope pencils count as practise too :p

    Cool. You could make a childrens book or something

    But I do think you should think about your line quality some more. One nice clean line is better than many inaccurate ones...

    aah. sorry 'bout posting without commenting. but the upload process with all the 'verify that this is actually your drawing' buttons takes so long that by the time I was halfway through I had to take Rem on my lap to keep him happy. and that means disconnecting the keyboard so he can bang on it.
    anyway, finally had some time for water colors. first one was a warm-up; it didnt quite turn out right but it's ok.

    next, this one sort of got away from me. but it might still be fixable. I dunna; thinking on it.
    Attachment 949725

    then this one. I'm quite happy with the hippo ^^ the colors espec.
    Attachment 949726

    last one, couldnt really find the pastels I wanted to use for this, so, as an experiment I used oil crayons instead. I'm not sure if it worked ok here, but it was a nice experiment.

    Nice update. Good to see you're posting again. I think if you did a sketch beforehand the paintings would turn out more accurate. And maybe use a bit less black and more saturated shadows.

    hey tobba; thanks. I see you've stayed at it at least!
    I'm a little cautious on sketching before I paint; it might take away some of the freedom in this stuff. or do you mean just sketchup on a different piece of paper, maybe even paint sketch, and then start over?
    that might be a good idea. I'll try it.
    well, gonna try and post at least once a week. at least that'll mean it wont just be sketchy stuff.. I hope.
    I did continue my baby journal. most drawings arent' really worth it though. these 2 were ok though.

    The tangent where the chin and the shirts collar meet makes it look like the chin is his neck. At least I think you should move the chin up a little bit.
