    right so. I guess im just the only1 excited about something like that
    here we go.

    stuff on construction is still bothering me though.
    1- I put my circles in, and I forget the far side of the forehead//cheekbones need to be as long as the close side.
    2- neck/jaw connection. weird stuff there.
    3-outside of the eye-socket connecting to the cheekbone. and the inside running to the nose bridge. putting in plains there feels weird and indeterminable.

    ah, and some pieces to finish for my portfolio. gonna actually start the real freelancing 6th of januari. but im trying to get everything in order before.

    Well let me be the first one to congratulate you on that Cintiq tablet,
    I think that its definitely a right time to bring a sacrificial lamb infront of this awesomeness.
    I would do so if I would possess one. The lamb and a Cintiq both. Your proportions
    surprisingly got better in the last few posts, especially on those head paintings, like
    you had some secret all the time, but you didn’t want to engage it. Now you
    are doing the right things, I also like the pants on that Satyr, and the visible
    huge tool that he possess underneath that. The figure is still too dark, lighten
    it up a bit, too much contrast on it currently, reduce it if you can.
    You are doing masterful deeds, even when you are asleep,
    so keep it up like this, and don’t go too berserk with your newly bought tablet.

    thanks pliss. I never saw getting proportions and measurements as a difficult thing. now that im refocussing on it I do see a lot of difficulties. might just be b/c I slacked on it so long. or maybe I didnt notice bf/ oh well.

    These already look a lot better than your average SB page. Very well done! Are you slowing fdown? Concentrating hard?
    Two things I'd like to note:
    a) try to loose the itchy-scratchy short lines you have in some places. Rather draw lightly and beef up the correct line with a more confident stroke afterwards.
    b) Have a second glance at the case? or upper book in the second still life. Do you see that the parallel lines going off towards our right converge in the wrong direction? They should be converging to a VP to the right on the horizon line, but they seem to converge to our left, to some point off the HL. I guess you drew this relying mostly on obersvation and measuring, which is absolutely fine. Knowledge of perspective kicks in whenever something doesn't make sense (e.g. here you've made a measurement or judgment error regarding the angles of the case/ book and your perspective knowledge tells you that).

    hi Benedict! thanks for stopping by. I dont know... dont think any slower then usual. there's a lot of measurements; always in life painting I think. I dont know why exactly. maybe because I feel I cant trust my eyes like I can with fotographs. those are already fixed flattened. so I dont feel the need to recheck the angles so much?
    the book you are referring to is a ds. I had a lot of trouble with it I remember, because the rest shapes on the tile behind it werent adding up. hmmm I keep telling myself I gotto take the time to take a step back and recheck what I got. but I guess I failed to do that here again.

    digital1 im thinking the knife blade on the butter knife might be too short looking again now.

    morning on the table. well, a lot of distractions ofc. maybe bc of that I realized the buttercup wasnt entirely closed and slanting pretty late in the game. I tried to show that but not sure I pulled it off.

    so I got my cintic. its big and awesome as I though... and its working too. I got some problems though. the idea was I was gonna be able to draw standing. but the stand with the table is too low. I can place it a bit higher on a stand, but then it's getting stuck with the shelves, a bit far back and still not high enough for my tastes. thinking of getting a double desk-arm, but it's a lot of tinkering to get it to work with a cintic, and the suppliers wont even give guarantee bc the consider the risks too high. not to mention that it's a pretty expensive thing too. I think I'll start with using my computer to put it on, see if I can make it fit somehow...

    I see you and your Cintique building up a nice warm friendship pretty soon,
    a big barn burner epic non forgettable digital piece is what’s going to follow.
    You just fix your suitable height and the rock show can begin, there will be
    no obstacle that can stop you from creating the burning miracle. I have to
    repeat that your proportions got boosted up from the last page, it’s something
    like a very pleasant surprise, and an example for the others, how strong
    motivation and dedication can create wonders. I would like to share a decent
    amount of respect, cause of those still life drawings that you did, the
    uncertain question marks are now filled with bold rows of success.
    You should continue bathing the soft jungle leaves under
    the soothing gold yellow moonlight.

    thanks pliss!

    I think this is the first I really 'spend my time'on though. 1 1/2 and mostly divided to measurements. interestingly enough, a rather large proportion of that went into just getting the basic shpaes right and fitting onto the paper. think I'd have liked some more shadow space in hindsight. maybe put those up in the planning stage too next time.

    That priceless piece of equipment is finally up on its pedestal, your
    studio is glowing at its brightest. I just wonder what kind of a feeling is
    working on that tablet, just one touch could fulfill one’s wildest dreams.
    The values are better on the wolf masked head. If you decided that your light
    source is from above, then you shouldn’t have such highlights on and under his
    chin and jaw bone. This happy little fellow reminds me on the game ‘Manhunt’
    that I’ve played years back, it’s a pretty little brutal game where you are going
    and killing prisoners on a worse possible way. They were also wearing similar
    masks and lunatic equipment. On this kind of head paintings/drawings I suggest
    that you put the most contrast and darkness on and around the eyes, cause I
    suppose that the eyes are the focal points on most characters and portraits.
    You are doing fine, so just keep up with the good work.

    wow, hey thanks ever1 for stopping by! it really means a lot. feeling a lot less alone now
    ah, this is my firt attempt on the cinitc. 1 problem, I gotto step back more. as for drawing off of the other screen, 1st attempts suck. completely missed the mark on the measurements. prolly b/c of stepping back and measuring too. gotto get those right habits hammered back in. just putting up my measurements first I think. and then step back and recheck... I know how its done. heck, I used to DO it like that. got sloppy I guess.


    1st try at the cintic, finished and fixed some on the tablet.
