dude, that is THE shit man! lovin it
is the pot and the shuffle pencil?
i like that you're working purely in traditional media.. hold off on that tablet as long as possible.. i know too many people today that pick up a tablet and that's all they ever use.. there is a real difference in the skills you can get from each, and many people that are incredible digital artists can't do shit on paper.. traditional painting will give you a better base for when you finally do go digital.. keep going.. draw everything, use tone, do contours, go to some public place a sketch people from real life.. it's very different than having everything figured out by a photograph.
Long time no post. Gotten a cool new job, have exams, other excuses, etc etc.
Second attempt at acrylic. roughly 1 hour. On paper (1:1)
Oil paint - an hourish. On non primed mdf (this picture is larger than the painting)

Pencil sketch, going to be painted. On primed mdf
yeah buddy, really nice paintings !! great skills ! i was looking for someone who can teach me to paint with acrylics, and i finally found you ! the portraits have some mistakes, especially around the mouth/chin area ! try to check the proportions ! Keep working !
Thanks Walid and Mr. Phil. I have fixed up the chin and some overall proportions, I will get some pics when I finally get around to painting it.
Just got my intuos3 a4. I have got a permanent hard on to how sexy it is.
I did this in about 30 mins. I didn't think at all as I was far too excited lol. Expect shit loads of digital paintings to come.
I'm not lucky, I spent ages saving up for this bitch
Thanks for the comment Walid, and I am gonna be working hard, just you wait.
Another digital painting. I need more practice. I am gonna do a longer study on Tuesday and take like the whole day. My 'schedule' is packed until then.
I went back into the apple for another 15 minutes. Better?
hey dude ! well, first, i think you should only work with b&w refs, to learn about how to manage your brushstrokes, and also to more think about the shape, and to paint more accurately ( you can check the 2 first pages of my sb, it really helped me ) then you can work with colors, and train your mental color pickup skill, which takes a lot of time to fully master ! So first, learn the basics, the b&w painting, brushstrokes, proportions, etc, then colors ! ok buddy ? well, i agree that your new apple is better, but it still have mistakes, and if you work from photo, you should post it too, we could give better crits ! Keep it up !
