"I wish to paint in such a manner as if I were photographing dreams" - Zdzislaw BeksinskiMy Happy Little Sketchbook, please check it out and help me get better!
Have not really been posting on this thread I suppose I will though since the party seems to be here. Nice work everybody.
f1x- I think you are talking to me right, haha? Google "Mourning For Icarus" to find the original to compare. I still have alot of work to do that on that study, like 12 hours or more worth, especially on the faces and pretty everything else. I'll definitely try to get it as close as possible though. If you see anything really off lemme know.
ff some rushed work. hope to get back on track soon.
The last few pages of this thread have been overloaded with golden-ness. YOU GUYS SHINE BRIGHTER THAN THE GODS!
Yes sorry, I was talking to you indeed, hehef1x- I think you are talking to me right, haha? Google "Mourning For Icarus" to find the original to compare.

I didnt know the original piece (its awesome)
now that I've seen it and now that you mention I did spoil a couple anathomy/perspective problems, (but as you said its very complex one, so only a couple problems its not much)
One of them being as said when it goes from the shoulder to the starting of the waist, his waist its too tiny, actually all of the "abdomen" part , but thats something easy to correct (I get it hard to express tbh I dont know how to say some of the parts of the body in english...)
The other thing is the arms of the girl that is on the lower part, its lookin chubby, but its actually chubby in the original one, but, the hand itself its perspective its a bit wrong, so it dosnt look like the hand is resting on the stone, also the wrist could be a bit tiny so the arm dosnt look too fat even if as said its fat in the original,
Also careful with the guys face, its got a tricky foreshort/perspective thing going on on the original already so your mind might want to actually do the face correct while the original looks a bit off/weird
hummm, anyway I think the study is really nice, everything else looks in place, just thought I would point this couple things if it helps you in anyway I'll be happy =)))
You can just jump in with any studies you do at any time. The group is still developing but as it stands there are no topics or themes at the moment--just work on what you need to improve on.
My winter vacation just started, so I did few studies today.
Did those portraits and some Bridgman's studies (on my sketchbook).
Critiques would be much appreciated.
Here's some more value studies! I feel i'm learning a lot from these , faces are tricky
Those perspective practises rock Sam! they look alot like hannes' studies. So nice and clean
Edit : haha oh wow the third one is sooooo cross eyed cant believe i didn't notice that earlier!
so much gold!!! must...try...harder!!! keep it up guys, great stuff!
THIS IS A STUDY! NOT MY OWN WORK! REPEAT. A STUDY!
so..this is a study I did after the great Kekai Kotaki. You can find the original here More or less a monochromatic color practice as well as seeing shapes 'n' stuff. It seems unfinished but I didn't really see the point going in and doing all the details, I'd rather do that with my own work.
