    Confused? Please look at the top of the page.

    Chompi'n Thank you! People tell me that there is a 3D effect if you're wearing glasses, but I didn't had it in mind. I just wanted to play a bit around that it doesn't look that boring anymore and I have to admit that I kinda like this effect.

    --------------------------------------

    One more value study.
    It's after Casper David Friedrich. Awesome painter and his control of values is also great.
    Gnah, it's so aweful to see how important values are, especially because I never took care of them before.

    great looking thread, you've showed tons of improvement, have a quick note about using photo textures though. when you lay them into an image you still have to go back in and work with them to make them fit the image, depending on the material used you have to adjust your speculars and generally make the lighting and amount of detail believable. I've attached a quick example with your post from yesterday to kind of show what I'm talking about.

    invinciblewombat Thank you. It was actually a study to understand how masking in photoshop works, but your example still shows what I could have improvement of the general image in a few minutes D: Sometimes I should just stop to hurry from painting to painting. So yup, thanks for pointing out man!

    ------------------------

    One more value study..
    Fucked this one up because the value of the background ruins everything I think.
    The portrait before just looked way cleaner and "understandable".
    Can someone point out what makes the first portrait look better than this one? ._.

    Thanks!


    Edit: Just joined this month's sketchbook challange by Wojtek Fus, so there's also an crappy sketchbook paaaaaaaaage! Fuck proportions...

    Thanks for dropping by my SB! I'll be doing more and more imaginative work, but at the moment I feel like really understanding light and color a bit more than I do now. Trying to save myself the frustration for future attempts whilst painting imaginatively, ha. And I was trying to be conscious about the lineweight for my IDW entry, but it looks like I should push it a little further than I did. Thanks for the crit!

    Not sure if you know the term (excuse me if I'm being redundant in that case) but the red/green/blue tinting that you put around your portraits in the last couple of posts is called chromatic aberration. It's is a pretty neat effect (Anthony Jones uses it quite a bit in his own work) and it has a neat way of making a painting look more like a photograph, albeit one that hasn't been corrected or taken "properly". I've been interested in a good way of recreating this myself, so I'll ask - how did you go about doing it?

    Looking through your SB, it's great to see all the construction studies, especially when dealing with anatomy. Your value studies are okay at the moment, but just be sure to always be mindful of your contrast between your lights and shadows and stick to using whites only for pure specular highlights and your blacks only for extreme occlusions; everything else will be varying forms of greys. I'm working at this at the moment, going back to simple geometric forms and rendering those in different lighting situations. Then I'll move onto combining these in various shapes and lighting those, getting more and more complex and organic as I go.

    Anyway, I've rambled enough. Keep up the good work and I'll be back to check out your progress!

    MrFrenik Thanks!
    For the effect: Duplicate your image and then go into the layer options of the duplicated layer. There you disable the red channel and you're already nearly done. Now you only need to move the duplicated a few pixels left or right and the effect appears. You can adjust how strong it is by adjusting the difference between the position of the two layers. It's pretty much self explaining once you did it.
    I hope you could understand my weird mini tutorial

    ---------------------------------------

    Stuff from today.
    Simplified some environments and focused again on the values.
    Still learned some stuff but I should move on to some stuff from imaginatio now.

    Grrr, my cold was killing me today so I spend most of the day lying around and watching some livestreams, tutorials and stuff like that.
    But at least I did my a quick sketchbook page for this month's challange.
    It's a quick landscape from imagination. I tried to redraw the study from yesterday as you can probably see.

    I would have loved to push the rendering more, but perhaps I'll do that still in the future.

    hi!
    Cool stuff. I really like the portrait on top of the page and how you rendering it. Slightly 3D-stereoscopic look
    Keep up the good stuff!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I will update my sketchbok at the end of the week again.
    School keeps me busy lately, but most my exams are over at the end of the week, so sorry for the lack of updates!

    Hello mate!! Your drawings are very strong, this skill will help you improve faster.Keep up improving your values. Decide whats in light and whats in shadow, these light and shadow areas should be distinct. The shapes you are doing are very good, maybe you need to introduce some soft edges, soft brushstrokes.
    Keep up the good work

    Great progress. Agreed with Kingkostas above though, great advice. Also, some of your compositions have a lot going on with lots of shapes of equal size/importance which makes it hard to know where to look. Looking forward to seeing more of your stuff, keep it up!

    MadGrav Thanks! They are actually not that great but I keep working on it.

    kingkostas Thank you kingkostas. Great to see you around. Right now I actually want to tackle my painting from imagination point. That's were I suck most, haha. I reaaaaaaaaaally need to train that and it's good to hear that my drawing foundations are going to help me there.

    Veshkau Thanks! I'll try to keep that in mind with my next paintings.

    ------------------------------

    I know, it's been a while but high school is sucking more time than I would have thought of and I am also helping out on this site, which is really fun.
    But I'll need to keep at it, so here's a tiny update before I try to update daily again.

    Thanks for commenting!

    Being busy, but still trying to do daily drawings and studies.
    Focusing on my figures lately because I enjoy it sooooo much ;_;

    The last character is from imagination, inspired by Marko Djurdjevic's Character DVD.
    Beside of that I also started my first bargue drawing.

    Looking good. Your values are coming out better and better, and I like the gritty style of your landscapes. Keep it up!

    It's been about 8 pages since I last nagged you. What happened? You sort of improved a lot.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.
