    Congrats on being the leader/moderator for Illustration of the Week!

    I really dig that recent girl study, as for what you asked me on my sketchbook I think your personal pieces would benefit more with more story telling. Also I see that you have done a lot of studies, and although studies are very important I think you should try and finish up more of your personal stuff. Since that would actually reinforce what you've already learned from your studies.

    Keep up the good work!

    Those colors are weird. I guess it was intended , wasn't it?
    Apart from that, it's great!

    Aksel: Haha! Stop complaining and follow that damn schedule of yours!

    Seb Ikso: Thanks! I don't like Bridgman's interpretation of the head actually, sp the heads I think you are referring to are after Kevin Chen: http://www.angelfire.com/art3/kchendemos/

    Ludic: Thanks!

    Chun Lo: Thanks! I'll try to include more story and do more finished pieces...I'm just not really sure how D:

    Twan: Thank you! Yeah, the colours may be a bit weird looking. I intended for some different looks, but I guess I didn't pull it off that well.

    Lain: Thanks!

    Konstruktion: Thank you! Hair is a bitch to paint though haha.




    So it's a bit of a shitty update (okay, more than a bit), but I hate to have a page with no art on it. So yeah, just throwing some recent stuff up so fill the pages...the drawings are done from life at the Museum of Nature from the Ottawa drawing meetup I organized recently (except the portraits which are from photos). The oils are done from life in an hour or two each--I tend to rush traditional stuff. All of my traditional stuff in this post is realyl rusty since I haven't used pencils or oils in months. Lastly that shitty little digi landscape was a quick playing with texture brushes I haven't used before. Dile is really getting me thinking more about texture and colour, so I'm gonna do more little studies or quick sketches now I think.

    Sorry for the shitty photo quality.

    That's a lot of shitty xD

    I personally like the oils, they have nice colours and depth to them. But yea... have some patience with traditional too =) They deserve it!

    Ryan: Thanks!

    Rengin: Thanks! Glad you like the oils as well. I gotta do more of them...




    Okay, so just a few studies from tonight. All from photos except the last, which is a Bierstadt study.

    Two things:
    Where can I download your brushes?
    You should probably come to life drawing one more time before you move to Oakville.

    Trisquel: I PM'ed you the brushes, but for everyone else have a look here (I used Jaime's brushes on the last few):
    http://www.pandemoniumart.net/brushes/

    Ryan and Dennis: Thanks for the advice, but stop bickering




    Okay, here is a terrible, terrible painting. Dennis was saying I need to do more speedpaint type things and fewer studies. Sooo...yeah. He also promised to do an overpaint on it so that's the only reason I'm posting this awful thing D:

    I kinda lost site of values and the colours started messing with me and look all unnatural (they looked better near the beginning but started turning ugly)...humph.



    EDIT: Forgot to add a little memory study from the other day. I looked at a photo for maybe 30 seconds then painted it from memory. I peeked for a couple seconds every now and then though.

    I was reading some of craig mulkins sujin posts and recall reading one that was about painting fast. He felt the key is to keep it clear where the lights and darks are. I feel you are doing that, just think about it alot when speedpainting, it's rrally important to simplify when painting fast.

    Simplify don't always mean fast though, heck go for a nice solid speedpaint look but take it slow to get that look right.

    Anyways keep it up.

    Lain: Yeah, I might be losing sight of some of the bugger things in these as I get too caught up in textures. I'll try to keep that in mind



    Just another quick little photostudy and then a few thumbnails done afterwards from imagination with some variations on the colours I just used in the study. I like doing little thumbnails afterwards--I think it helps me improve my colour.

    Also sorry for the small update...I did a few perspective studies but they aren't worth showing.

    I did these about a week ago. Both are oils based on the photos attached. Obviously I played around a lot with colour and other things to make them more interesting. They are of a bridge in Pakenham to hopefully be able to sell to tourists...

    Ven: Thanks!

    Ryan: Well they aren't meant as studies. I mainly just used the photos for reference on composition and then painted from imagination. I get what you are saying, but these were meant to be able to sell as paintings, as opposed to being a colour study of a shitty photo (seriously, never mind my crappy colours, the original colours are awful haha).

    smoreyjinza: Thanks, but I was copying a photo so the colours are the credit of the photographer.



    Ughghghgh. I tried a bit more work on the necromancer, but honestly I feel like anything I add actually makes it worse. I guess I just like it as a sketch, and should leave it as one.

    And all I got done today was half a photo study. I was with my girlfriend all day so couldn't paint, then when I began this one I realized I hated the colours in the photo since they are kind of unnatural and so I stopped. Yeah...ah well. Not a good day of painting.

    My57: Thanks! I'll try to make it out to those extra life drawing sessions!



    Didn't do a whole lot lately, since I've been busy with driving down to Oakville to check out the Orientation at Sheridan and start to move things into my new place there. Also been spending time with my girl

    So for now, here is a little Rick Berry study...that guy has such skill! Really fun to paint in his style.

    I'm getting nice and excited for Sheridan...not only is there an extra 18 hours per week of life drawing on top of regular class that I can attend, in the studio I am provided with my own 27" iMac and 21UX Cintiq. Sorry, had to brag a bit, I can't wait to use it!

    EDIT: I also spent a few more minutes the other day on my necromancer so it could make it to the poll.

    The first figure in the last post just blew me away with the brushwork. And I'm jealous of the cintiq access..... *drool trail* Have a super time at Sheridan and have lots of fun at orientation!
