    EBrown: Thanks!

    Here's the finished florist illustration, and the progress on the figure homework. I also took a closeup picture, just in case you want to know what the brushmarks look like. I'm trying to avoid blending.

    Luckers: Thanks! Toned paper is amazing for sketching exactly because you can work up to white, and you spend less time rendering. Great stuff.

    Here's the progress on the figure homework, and my sketch for the current ArtOrder challenge. At first I did an underground setting that's full of tree roots, and then realized that I can't f***** read and got the brief wrong, it needed to be in an actual interior. So I spent the last day redoing the background. Rib vaults are hard. I posted both versions for shitsngiggles, I like the newer one much better.

    The textured figure is an absolutely stunning and beautiful piece of art. I just have one little thing that I noticed with it--the arms and hands are too long and large. I provided a paintover (hope you don't mind), showing on the left the original, in the middle the changed version with lines overlaid from the original, and on the right the changed version without any lines on top.

    Once again, apologies in advance if you aren't okay with me posting this...

    Odayga: Thanks!

    Andrew: Thanks! And no, I don't mind at all, thanks so much for pointing that out. Going to have to edit those .

    Here's the finished in-class figure. This was day 3 of the pose, less than halfway into the day the teacher (Zhaoming Wu) came up to me and told me I should stop before I started ruining it. So I did another 3 hour painting of the other model in the room.

    Value sketch for a peter pan painting for Bill Maughan's class. Not sure if I'll do the piece in oil or continue digitally.

    I'm in love with post 702. That figure painting is wonderful; the brushwork adds to it. The experimentation is going places.

    Your sketches are fun to look at too. I'll be visiting again in the near future

    Great work, and I realize how hard it can be trying to translate the quality of your figurative pieces to your illustration work. But more practice, practice, practice and you'll get there. You do some really beautiful figure painting. May I ask what size and what canvas/board do you work on? I'm going to be starting my first oil painting class early next year.

    Shreya: Thanks! Minotaur's gonna take a while, the rest will be done soon. Zhaoming is amaaaaaaaaaazing! Both for learning and for the joy of watching him paint (it's magical. if you can get your hands on his DVD, do eet!).

    Parsakoira: Thanks! It's all practice yo, do some oils!

    Nutella: Thanks!

    Gamerhomie: Thanks! Yeah, I really do want to get the quality from my figure paintings into my illustration, right now I don't know how to accomplish that without sacrificing detail and storytelling. It looks like I'm taking a class with a guy named Huihan Liu next semester though (he was a classmate of the aforementioned Zhaoming Wu), hopefully I'll learn to do it there. The size I work on varies wildly, although I'm working larger and larger as time goes on. A lot of my studio work is on 24X30 or 24X36. The minotaur is the largest I've ever worked, 30X40" (unless you count a 2X3' I did in undergrad... it sucked, so I don't ).

    Here are the last figure paintings from Zhaoming's class. The first one is actually from much earlier in the semester, I forgot to post the final. Zhaoming said that it's the last painting I did in my old style, from then on I started to get much better with edge handling and expressiveness. The 2nd piece, Cecilia, is from life and Emerge is from photo.

    all this work reaaaly puts me to shame!! i gotta crank out the oils sooooon!! i just dont want to work too big cause im bound to fuck it up and loose a canvas, but dont want to do it too small cause it might be good haha
    anyways, your figures are looking absolutely stunning!
    how big is emerge? is it all oils? it has a super nice texture and atmosphere to it! keep at it dude can't wait to see more from you!!

    ryanoir: Thanks man! I totally sympathize with not wanting to waste a canvas, that stuff is expensive. However, I do recommend working large, it's more forgiving and can actually be faster. Use gessoed wood panel or masonite to keep costs down. Emerge is all oils yeah, on 24X30" masonite panel. To give you an idea of what I'm talking about with size, that was too small to work on the figure comfortably for me.

    Here's the finished Dune painting!

    These are wonderful! The strokes of the background tie in so well to the painting theme. And the skin is well done!
