    Ryan: Thanks! I think I spent 10 hours or so on that.

    Moonrage: Thanks a lot, glad the color's getting somewhere! This has definitely been a semester of experimentation for me in that department. I can't check the issue with the leg now that the pose is over, but it's possible that something was measured incorrectly.

    Parsakoira: Thanks man! Definitely definitely definitely study painting. All the great illustrators were great painters. Which school have you applied to?

    The first 2 couples painting are done.

    Michoangelo: Thanks so much!

    This was a quick study I did yesterday to experiment with a limited palette - white, indian yellow, quinacridone red, phthalo blue, and ivory black. I learned that you can indeed mix a large part of the gamut from them, and I learned that all those paints are so transparent that it's nearly impossible to get a thick passage with any strong color in it. Also, the drawing sucks, but in my defense I was rushing and fighting with thin paint .

    Also, canvas panels are the devil. Like, srsly gaiz.

    Ryan: Here ye go!

    Raminafshari: Thanks!

    Here's the finished Fruit bazaar painting, a closeup of the girl's face in it, weeks 1 and 2 of a 4 week pose in Huihan's class, and as far as I'm going with the Bouguereau copy.

    Love your oils. I looked at the first 5 pages of your skbook and last 5. To have improved that much in such a short time, you must have been studying every waking moment. Great stuff.

    Rhubix: Thanks! I'll post some sketchbook pages for sure when I have the time, between taking photos, editing them and dealing with CA's utterly horrid attachment manager I'd need to set like an hour aside .

    Mitze: Thanks! I could probably study more, but I'm glad the work's paying off .

    Week 3 of 4 on the figure painting.

    Wish I had something constructive to say, awesome work all I around.

    EDIT: If you don't mind, I was wondering what your opinion of the Illustration classes at AAU? I'm looking at Illustration 1 and wondering if I'd be better off just taking some more figure painting/drawing classes. Basically did you feel like you got a lot out of the illo classes?

    Thanks!

    My heavens, I'm in love with your oil studies! The colors are excellent and your brush work is so soft. Your compositions are beautiful as well - great sketchbook. Really great.

    Pierce9: Thanks! I'm not sure about most of the illustration classes at AAU actually, the only undergrad one I took was Narrative painting (Craig Nelson), and the 3 grad ones were all good- teachers I had were Bill Maughan, Lisa Berrett and Stephen Player. Almost all of my classes have been drawing and painting, which I really needed for the first 2 years. I feel like how much you get out of the illustration classes will really depend on how solid your foundations are, so if you feel shaky I'd do more figure/portrait for now. Chuck Pyle should also be able to give you a good idea of what classes will suit your skill level.

    TookMyPearl: Thank you!

    Progress on the Nazgul piece. About a day of work left on it.

    oh man your work is so fantastic!
    love the way you handled the grass in the last piece - and the expression in the horses face! the chest of the warrior holding the sword looks a bit strange, but sorry nothing too constructive ..

    Ryan: Meng why you gotta be like dat?

    Ok so this wasn't really finished. I posted it on facebook and got a really helpful crit from Elwell, so I worked on it some more. Mostly glazes. Now it's done for real, mailed off and everything.

    Also, that figure painting's done.

    It seems like you're learning at a ridiculous pace right now! The last couple of paintings are really good. It's pretty cool to me, to see that you were able to achieve an intimidating feeling with some quite lush greens and warm yellows in the Eowyn & the Nazgul painting.

    I love the painting of the couple on the couch, especially the interaction between the cool light and warm shadow; you handled that very nicely. Good stuff all around, pleasure to see

    Benjaminba: Thank you! Glad the mood comes off in that painting even with the summer colors, was worried that it wasn't going to work .

    Here's a still life study I did, in preparation for an illustration I'm starting. (I've also been itching for an excuse to paint that broken sculpture that's been sitting in my studio).

    Rbeek: Thanks !

    So I was going to upload 28 pages from my current sketchbook, but I don't have even remotely enough patience right now to deal with CA's uploader or to manually link every photo, so here's a link to the pictures on my blog and a teaser .
