    I've seen you painted my future wife , it looks very good. I also love the cartoons. The torso looks very well rendered; perhaps you could show us more of the stuff you're doing for you anatomy class, that seems very interesting.
    The advice about hardening your brush was good. I see in this last posts that you've conquered that part.
    I also think that Dan Llimatta told you a good advice, your colors are to furious (saturated). In real life, things can only be that saturated if the right light is hitting them directly and if they are smooth surfaces and very clean (as dirt tends to add grey to the color wich makes a desaturated feel). Also, most materails are made of a compound of diferent groups of molecules, and each group is of a different color; so from our POV the colors are mixed giving also a more desaturated, colorless effect. So, I'm just saying that a few things could be saturated, but not the mayority and either all of them.
    Your last pieces are great, but too saturated. Look at Dan Llimatta's SB. He's one guy that knows his stuff.
    The fact that you are studing anatomy cancell pretty much any potential advice since your doing the right thing already, and your drawings show a lot of skill and talent, so, for know what I'm saying is keep studing the anatomy and check the colors

    Lennon: Hold on a second...she's MINE!!

    Thanks for taking the time to comment, your encouraging words, and a very valuable critique!

    Even though I've taken color theory...the concepts you explained about the way we see color is extremely helpful to me. I have looked at Dan's thread and have begun to see what you mean on his art and many others here.

    Now the hard part...putting it in my art.

    Thanks again!

    So for you here's another charcoal: surface anatomy

    love the bust oil painting, though the tle too solid and great work on the cartoon sketching, i think the old guy drapery looks alitpiece has alot of life to it, although the eyes could do with some eyelids anyway hope to see more of your traditional stuff and keep up the good work.

    Fiori: Thanks for stopping by! Appreciate your comments too! I'll try to post another oil painting asap.

    ----------

    If anyone is in the Phoenix area and is into animation, check out the Chuck Jones Exhibit at the Tempe Center for the Arts.

    I've posted days and times, several pics and all the related info and links etc at my blog:

    http://artmusicpoliticsfaithandlove....ibit-pics.html

    If by chance you don't know who Chuck was: He was an American Master (September 21, 1912 – February 22, 2002).

    He was an artist/animator and director for Warner Brothers and created or collaborated on the creation many of their famous characters (and/or directed their animated movies and shorts): Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Porky Pig, Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, Marvin Martian, Pepe Le Pew and Michigan J. Frog to name a few.

    His ability entertain with those iconic characters, to animate them with exaggerated but believable movements and expressions, and his amazing body of work is IMO seriously impressive.

    His desk and books etc (although I don't think he had an LCD TV in the 1940's...it was playing a DVD about his life. : )

    Some of his hand drawn sketches and notes etc

    So I've been working on an epic (for me) piece and started to feel burned out on it. So I took one of the images (pen and ink) I just uploaded here...dropped it into Sketchbook Pro and gave it some color.

    I tried to put into practice the suggestions from the great critiques I've gotten so far...where it was universally agreed that I was using too saturated color and was painting with brushes that were too soft .

    So am I closer on those counts?

    Here's the original drawing and then the digi-painting over it.

    I've included a few drawings from my sketchbook below.

    Critiques and comments are most welcome!

    I have no idea why the attachment manager didn't like these. I'll leave them here in case they show up. (Ahhh...fixed now)

    Thanks for looking in!
