Hi Daggerrs. I've been following along with the old pen and paper, no scanner so nothing to share there yet.
Great workrate there Alextooth! Those flowers look a right pain to draw, well done! Very curious to see how that turns out.
Here I have the most cowardly still life ever: A plain tomato with one light.
And the masterstudy so far:
Well I've been avoiding doing a digital life painting, so this morning I decided to just jump in and try one. I think this may have been my first one ever. I'm afraid the subject matter isn't very original, but I learned a lot and was surprised by how much fun I had. Some stuff's a little wonky and I had a bit of a difficult time with the knife handle, but what a great exercise.

(this sucks, but if you look at my early studies you can already see a small improvement! and thats what this is all about hell yeah!)

These are last sundays studies. Just have chance to scan today...reason why digital sometimes have so much appeal.
Dado Almeida - Illustrator looking for Freelancing
WELL i have mailed the author of the plugin colorpicker, he answered me nicely and joined a WORKING version of his mod, it works with EVERY PS CS4 VERSION, tested and approved
>>>colorpickerINTERNATIONAL.ZIP - 0.40MB<<<
for those who dunno what does this add on, it creates an alternative color picker, the original PS one needed to be opened closed each time, not this one !
I wont be able to do the stream til 11/28 @9am EST. Gotta pick my sister up on my way home for thanksgiving. Hope you all continue on with the studies!

crappy still life from this morning kinda slacked off been working on my own stuff today experimenting with new techniques and styles will post a full complete piece on here soon i think this is not even finished but i think while dave is away ill do 2 more so i can make up for it
here i did an arm study and put my own twist on it once i had the anatomy done. its not perfect but its a study.
i also did a Loomis head and tried to apply it to my style. now talk about hard...
sorry about the poor scan, its hard to scan a sketch book.
so, leave all your comments,critiques and what have yous, i will reply !
my portfolio :
I was really impressed by blexano's leyendecker study. Did'nt know this guy. So I googled him. He's (was) just awesome O.O Love his style! So I did a study of one of his studies... took me 3 hours and I could going on, because there are plenty of faults and rough areas.
hey guys, here's my still life from yesterday and my photo study from today. they're not much but both were kind of breakthroughs for me in small ways. feels goood. also had my final exam today so theres NOTHING STOPPING ME NOW except maybe this sleep deprivation. I tried to work more on the master study but i'm too spaced out so it'll have to be tomorrow
I'm not really sure how to study - I don't seem to be able to identify his brushwork or how he approached the painting. I do find working on this very useful and fun but I'm not sure I'm getting everything out of it.
(also, I found my colours to be very different on another computer and I should check which one is to blame - this calibrating seems complicated at a quick glance though)
OmertA - Thanks!
Tooth - It would be easier if you would just paint a flower in the beginning. This way you are faster and learn more from the study, because flowers aren't easy! :/
Melfey - Yeah, great! I think I can learn a lot from Leyendecker. Bobby Chiu posted some hi-res studies (added the link ) on his Chiu-Stream Blog. Aaand watch your skintones! ^__^
lowkey - Awesome reflection! =D
Cacodaemonia - I wish I could use painter. )=
So I did the photo-study today.
It's a photo of a stature from Canova also posted in Chiu-Stream Blog.
There's always really inspirering art to drool over.
Fuuuu that hair.. xD
Can't believe this took me 2 hours! D:
Have to work harder!!!

Finally finished the photo study. I am not sure if I can transfer what I learned to drawings and paintings from imagination. It's this step which appears to be like magic for me. Some drawers seem to be more able to learn from studies then others. Sometimes I'm asking myself if maybe it would be more helpfull to learn from trial and error. I don't know...
From my stream yesterday.
From the previous one.
