i know a lot of the stuff here is quick doodles n stuff. one good thing is to always thoroughly define the sillhouette. Especially in the speed paintings. This will give your work an immediate read of depth and will create clarity in your compositions.
Aryeh: yes, most of my work is pretty fast. I don't want to concentrate on any kind of details.
In my opinion i still try to make too clear shapes. I would rather like to draw and paint loose with strong composition, idea and color palete, like Craig Mullins instead of some pointless detailing, perfect shapes,..
In other word.. i would like to start express myself, not to draw like in books..
But studies will reamain academic.
Anyway.. i'm aiming on something between expressionism (not abstract) and realism so where watcher would see both, power of anatomy ant other knowledge and how can i imply that in artistic way.
A LOT of hard work is on my road. I'm ready for it every day more and more
Here is some quick girl from imagination. Hard brush, opacity set to 100%, one layer and limited color palete are just to make it harder
Ohhh, very cinematic war scene. The mood/atmosphere is great!
I admire your studies, and the fact that you do them constantly. They're looking really good! The glasses on the last page were absolutely beautiful, and the profile figure study a few posts before was awesome too. And the most recent motorcyclist painting is just kickass. Great job getting so much speed in that, and making everything read clearly while keeping it so simple. @__@ *really impressed*
