    Great studies man, I really like the paintover you did for the critique section. It actually helped me a lot sense I've been trying to get more in to color. So, it did end up helping someone. Keep it up

    Forrest_I: Thanks! I am always glad when I help someone.

    Just two quick studydomes from photo I did with ryanoir. They were so fast! Kind of failed them.

    Velocity Kendall: Thanks man! Was it you that gave me stars? I felt so happy to see I now have a rating!

    Okay, some quick studydomes with ryanoir again. Kind of shitty. I shouldn't be drawing after midnight. Yeah, first one I was trying textured brushes, and then ryan told me they were meant for environments. So I used his brushes instead and got better results.

    ryan: And you are such a meanie.

    skMOP: Thanks man, it is a great compliment that you are inspired.

    So I kind of suck and don't have much to show. A spent another 15 minutes on a study that I did with ryanoir because it was bugging me. It is still a little off, but I am happier with it.

    And two studies after Jeff Jones, a new hero of mine. Seriously, my appreciation of Jeff's work was already huge, but doing these studies made it that much more intense. There is emotion in her paintings, something I find very few artists achieve (at least in my eyes).

    I learnt a ton about how much hue and saturation can do when values are tightly controlled and restricted in an area. I also noticed a cool effect happens when you have a dark area that is desaturated and add in a few bits of the same value but really high saturation. It creates a kind of vibrating depth that I like--you can see bits of this in the dress of the first study which has saturated blues, and in the shadows of the second study which has reds and purples (although it may depend on your monitor).

    I was using ryanoir's brushes, and man, what a difference textured brushes can make. I never liked them before, but now am really liking the effects that can be achieved.

    I need to work from my imagination soon...too much ref stuff.

    yeah man! that's more like it!
    you still beed to push harder on your tablet and define the shapes,think of it like a puzzle, gotta make the shapes right!
    also define the nipples too, it kills the piece with no defiiition in them, just solid shapes aint nipples fool
    your construction on the second is veryy well done, so try more like that! looks real solid
    keep at it

    raminafshari: Thanks! Nudes are what I do best haha.

    Ludic: Thank you!

    ryanoir: Thanks for the crit man! Yes, I confess I built these up in thin layers of low opacity...shame on me.

    DStraX: Thanks! Will do.

    A Sorolla study...could work on it way more (especially hands, head and feet) but am too tired of it. Been working on and off it for a while tonight while chatting with people on MSN. It slow to do both at the same time, but kind of nice and relaxing.

    ryan: Thanks! I was struggling so much with the saturation on this one. You go off by just a bit and it either looks dead or too strongly coloured.

    raminafshari: Thank you!

    eekolite: Glad you like the paintover! I may do a bunch of gestures to give you your hundred figures haha.

    Marian: Thank you!

    Ludic: Thanks! Getting a trad feel with digital is pretty hard, but it helps when you have some textured brushes and are copying a master.

    Sorry for the lame update...just a quick generic soldier dude from my imagination I did last night while talking on MSN. Pretty poor design though. Not very functional or a very interesting silhouette. I need to study armour more haha.

    Probably won't be able to do much art today--my room is getting painted and I need to clear out everything pretty much for the workers to have room to paint. And my room is REALLY messy. This could take a while...

    One thing I notice is: Does anyone really hold their sword like that? I like the armor design but overall the values feel a little muddy to me.

    The figure studies above are reaally nice.

    haha - about your room
    im kinda in the same spot as you at the moment! had/have to clear out my brothers room and my own (brother just moved out) and gotta move crap from here to to there to make it my studio MUAHAHA
    i dig the armour though looks metallic, but the contrast should be upped a bit i guess
    and ZOMG > I HATE IT WHEN YOU GET A TEXT JUST BEFORE YOU HAVE TO GO SLAUGHTER THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE. GOD
    and he looks like a nun
    anywho, watch the use of texture, and think in SHAPES SHAPES SHAPES, HAVENT I TOLD YOU BEFORE?!
    aaaaaand i love you
    thats all!

    p.s. if Andrews Mom sees this, i don't love andrew as a gay sex partner, just as a friend!

    skMOP: Thanks for the crit!

    ryan: Hahaha thanks man! Had fun tonight cleaning and drawing at the same time as you.

    A couple studydome with ryanoir from tonight... 16 minutes and 17 minutes. They were both really tough. First one the colours are alright given the time I think, and the second one sucks over all.

    ryan: I know

    Talked a lot with dile_ tonight. Learned a ton from him, and am gonna change up my study methods I think. Anyhow, did these with him earlier before we started talking a lot.

    I find it way too hard to believe you only use PS elements for these paintings...
    Anyway, as I said before, you're insanely talented for a 17 year old and everything I've seen so far makes me jealous. Hope to see you at life drawing some time.

    17? Really? Epic awesome I wish i found ca when i was that young. Keep it up man, you're going to be a master in no time at this rate. Your figure studies are on the mark lets see you combine them with your environment skills and get some moods and settings going. Don't let your skills go to waste!

    Icey: Thanks so much man! It is a great honour to get stars from you (although I am not sure I deserve 5 of them haha). And you are right about finishing and doing more from imagination. I am quite dissatisfied with my reliance on reference, and am trying to change it.

    qlotzan: Thanks!

    Trisquel: Yeah I missed life drawing tonight . But I'll try to make it in future weeks. Also Photoshop elements isn't THAT bad...all you really need to paint is the basic round brush, so it doesn't matter too much.

    Jaunay: Thanks! I actually feel like I am behind where I should be at my age, but I just need to work harder. I'll try and do some mixes of figure and enviros.

    Bit unhappy that I missed lifedrawing tonight because of a bit of a mishap in communication, but anyhow, must move on...

    So I am too reliant on ref, and feel that I am not getting as much out of my studies as I should be. This is a double study thing I will be doing more of for the next little while to help flex my painting-from-imagination muscles (kind of in between pure imagination and from ref--it should ease me into pure imaginative stuff). What you do is copy a photo, then paint it again afterwards from memory. I also wrote down notes of where I went wrong to help me retain more from the study. Each one took exactly 30 minutes.

    You realize that by you saying that, it just makes me feel worse about being leagues behind at my age I just went to my first life drawing session ever today.
    Don't worry - drawing from your imagination will come naturally once you have the fundamentals nailed, which clearly doesn't seem to be the issue here. I started out by only ever drawing from my imagination, and look where it got me. At least you got a head start.
