    exploding into page 8 yeah!!

    been working on this since this morning, minus showering. probably a total of 2.5 hours? it took like an hour to do the lineart alone, and I think the glass might still be wonky. probably going to be in this one for a while, but right now I have to go to work

    I'm definitely guilty of working small too soon D:

    CharReed: so far your lights and darks on the porcelain are all blue (ish grey) which is making it look flat. theres quite a bit of yellow light in this picture... look at the top of the teapot thing and the light on the plates for example. here's a quick paintover... sorry it's shitty but I'm gonna be late haha

    also i'm not that good at judging colour so dont trust me on this but I feel like i see bits of purple/mauve in the shadows too

    EDIT: oh wait I just saw what you said about colours. DISREGARD

    great job guys

    Elnazareno: when you look at colors try to get a sense of what is affecting them , for instance if you are using indoor lighting it will probably be affected by yellow light so you'll have to adjust your color accordingly.

    really awesome to see so much people working to improve!

    Great work, polydrawer!

    Elnazareno: also good to note is that our eyes deceive us. We think we are seeing one color when in reality it's a totaly different one. Try squinting your eyes, it helps.

    Hey, really glad to see that some of you have been getting some use out of that study sheet. You guys are really rockin' those manikins! You're putting me to shame. And WOW, great paintings guys and gals! I was busy all day with family so I've got some catching up to do. I'll probably try to post some studies later tonight and start on my life study painting tomorrow. Should see you guys in the morning though.

    Well here's what I got done tonight. Really trying to get back to the basics and learn that shit. I've been shooting myself in the foot for years because I never took the time to really memorize this stuff. So I guess later is better than never.

    Undeadartist: Good work! I don't think the colours are your main problem. I think it's the values. I cannot believe that the highlights were really the brightest white possible.

    Our problem is that our eyes automaticly ajust to the light situation. If you enter in a dark room, your eyes adapt. If you go out on a bright sunny sommer day, your eyes adapt. And this is the same if you look at a knife, cup, glass or whatever. It gives you the impression that the brightest parts seem to be white and the darkest parts seem to be black. But this isn't true!!!

    For a good still life you have to study the colours (means also the values) very concentrated. You have to compare the colour you picked on your computer with the reality. In most cases (this was my third coloured still life) I have to correct the colour I chosed, because my eyes played a trick.

    Sorry for my bad english - I hope you got the point.
    See ya in the lifestream

    Crimson Daggers

    if anyone can help with seeing colors IN shadows id be really grateful! ALL I SEE IS GREY! and I *know* you shdnt use grey because it muddies up your colors, but I swear, it's grey!! halp?

    @petitemistress
    Did you ever tried to work with two different light sources? I mean two different light colours, like one blue light and one yellow light. This might help you seeing the colours in the shadows, because it's easier to see, if there is any contrast.

    For me seeing the colours in shadows and lights works, when I compare them with other colours in the picture. I usually gaze at the colour I would like to identify and compare that colour with the near environment. Sometimes this colours can also be found in other parts which are far away. The highlight on the teapot in front of me resembles the colour of the floor. It's a kind of dirty beige. I did'nt expect that, but it would help to create a persuasive still-life if I would integrate that observation in it.

    Also important is the fact that a lesser saturated colour used on the same item like the high saturated colour works like an other colour. Some "greens" and "blues" I used on my still-life "Tea egg & Pear" are in fact low saturated reds and oranges on the palette. Analyze the tea egg with your colour picking tool - you will be surprised!

    Dammit!!!! I tried watching the livestream this morning, but it kept crashing my web browsers. Happened like 20 times. Super pissed! Tried restarting my computer, but no luck. Any ideas? Guess I'm just going to work on something for a bit and be there in spirit. Sorry I couldn't be there guys. Really bums me out. I'll try to watch it on demand later I guess. Looking forward to seeing what all you guys create!

    started a new setup of still life since that persimmon fruit wasn't working out where i placed it (on top of my computer tower lol). anyways this is just a magnifying glass w/ a metal handle and a ps3 controller. I plan on adding something with more color into the mix. :3

    I am going to fail all of my exams. because of this still life.

    BUT I learnt a tooonnnn of stuff from this, like
    1) glass and metal are severe weak spots
    2) never ever start painting until the lines are solid. just. never. and no, it wont just work out this time shut the fuck up and fix the perspective on that glass >:0
    3) I was stupid for putting off still lifes until now. always do what you're afraid of.
    4) apples taste better after spending 6 hours painting them

    I also wish I'd put more thought into the objects/composition, but it was fun painting the apple reflections.

    Amazing! I can see everyone riding the crimson thunder. keep on going, pushing. climbing and don't stop until you need to recharge that thunder by feeding it some blood soaked studies! 8)

    I had no lamp-related fatalities this time!

    Tried to work differently this morning as my penalty for sleeping in 10 minutes. D:

    -Jumped into color headfirst instead of starting with greyscale.
    - Switched my subjects up to being a juggling ball and a Plastic surprise egg ordiment.
    -Hit myself in the face with a cat.

    Sorry I missed you guys this morning, I'm in the midst of a pretty big move and it's unfortunately taking up all of my time. I'll be sure to sit down and continue my still life tonight. Everyone is doing awesome. Kudos.
