    Whoa, the second one is phenomenal. Is the robot holding two orange flavored ice cream cones? It's left leg seems slightly bent and off the walking course but I don't think you should change anything - great job on it and welcome to CA, astro.

    Keep doing you

    Da-mn! Very nice! The second one is phenomenal, not to say the first is bad in the least.

    Your foot problem is perspective. The next time you do a footprint or a pic with this type of situation , just watch out for it, and use a type rule of thumb. Besides that I think it looks good.

    Hello! Hey, thanks for your note. Respect BTW with the gouache. Personal taste here but the first is my pic as the strongest. The pathos comes through most clearly on this one and the handling of media has a nice range from the detailed figure to the loose elements in the background. Hope to see more.

    Thanks!

    Bill:Thanks man! Any news on that job?

    Slobosaurus:Thanks so much for your help! I think I see what you mean about the perspective, I have to work on that and the figure has tangents and weird overlaps....I think It has more than one horizon line and one line on the chair goes to a diff VP than the other line on the same side!?! No wonder she's so depressed...

    Here's a digrame:

    Hahah, another really impressive painting astro. The tree root growth could be a tad more realistic to give the picture a more complete tone. Those trees in the backround - you have my nod of approval.

    Thank You!

    Vulgar`:Thanks, good call on the roots I'll flesh them out if I do a finished pice from this...and you made me realize I didnt like the way the big root pooled at the bottom of the page, distracting...here's a quick fix in PS...thanks again for helping me out!

    Yes, that looks better. There's a nice somewhat ethereal quality to these pictures; i'm already waiting for the next.

    hey there!

    Really nice coloring, like the girl in the wind most. They have all a dreamy feeling attached to it. As said above, some perspective issues in the robot picture....

    Good start! Keep it up

    Cheers

    Andi

    Great paintings, the colours and overall feeling of your work is very appealing. I thought at first the robot was a Battle Droid though.

    walnut:Is that Louis De Funes (Fantômas) as your avatar? Cool...I hope I don't disappoint you too much; I have good days and bad...
    Delmar:Thanks! I've definitely got to work on perspective...and everything else too...
    Whitevillage:That does look like a STAR WARS© battle droid ©&™, probably because it's quick to draw...here’s today’s battle droid all stretched out

    JailHouseRock2:Thanks Matt! Yes, keep an eye on me or I'll get all lazy arse...And by "Painting" I mean a quick sketchy study really, and small like 9X7 so they fit in my scanner...If one of these ever turns out good I might make a finished pice from the concept...

    The second to last is almost a stunning piece of work. The mood is ominous but mysteriously welcoming. Man in a black cloak meets princess of light in the woods - but she may be more than she seems. Darkness, light and nature in the communion of a simple meeting.

    Keep going, my good sir.

    Timmi-o-Tool:Thanks Timmi, If I had a robot I would say go get me an ice cream, then I'd be all, and get on for yerself while yer there...that’s how I roll...
    Slobosaurus:Thanks Mike! I usually draw the foxes with my animal magnetism...
    Vulgar`:And you Sir are a Poet, I am honored by your post!

    So last night I started learning Sketch-up, thanks to the new section of this wonderful forum I was able to make a simple scene from scratch, which is a testament to the facility of the program because I am a complete idiot when it comes to 3d... I printed it out and transferred it to my board using graphite paper...then painted away without a worry of perspective... Now I can worry about my crappy figures and why I used such fruity colors in a dungeon...here it is (SU,WC,G)

    Thanks for the comment in my sketchbook; you have some very nice paintings here.
    with Sketch-up (not that i have used it or done much on perspective myself) do try not too let it do the work for you, so you could say put the perspective in yourself and then recreate the scene in Sketch-up to see if there are any mistakes you might have made, other wise you might become too reliant on it.
    Hope I don't sound too preachy as it is just what I think.

    GlassEye:Thanks, I didnt see your post there till just now...Yeah What your saying is true if one dosent know perspective one will get caut with ones paints down I agree... Also a 3d program wont find the composition for you, Composition is what I'm trying to learn with this painting a day workout. Now that I look at the painting I messed up on the eye lines; eather that guy in front is 20 feet tall or hes standing on somthing... I'm still studying Loomis!
