    fudgeloaf - Thanks for the kind words Ive done both, traditional and digital gamut masks. Traditional invloves printing a color wheel and cutting out squares of transparent paper to the same size, then cutting out the gamut. Digital involves making a personal color wheel and on another layer just make the shape you want with the selection tool, (the triangle one I forget whats its called), and then invert selection and fill. This way is alot easier and I wouldnt even bother saving the masks after youve done it, unless you need to come back to it of course to continue a painting. But yeah I love that book, Ive read it all but I suppose Ive only studied about half of it haha. Il share some stuff with you that I made after reading it and wanted to improve my digital process.
    Color wheel I use gamut masks on.

    I made this by going up in incriments of 10% through brightness and chroma/saturation. I find it really handy because unlike using the slider I can actually remember what 10% looks like and 20% etc, I dunno that way its just way clearer for me.

    Of course this can be simplified but I like to have 12 hues to choose from.

    On to my paintings!

    I didnt notice it right away but ive been painting alot of youtubers lately haha.
    It started with this painting, its a video game news show and they always have nice lighting. I think the main guy Layne Pavoggi is usually a lighting guy.

    This one happened because Greg Benson of mediocrefilms was doing a live stream as his character Yeshmin Blechin. Hes hilarious. I decided to paint him while he was doing it for the craic. I sent it to him he said he might show it in his next video lol

    Yeah now this one is a little bigger in work load and ALOT nerdier. Its also only a work in progress btw. Ive only been watching these guys videos for a week but there hilarious and instantly got me hooked on this game MineCraft.
    So I decided to do them a painting that is half realistic and half minecraft looking, with caricatures of themselves of course.

    Off the top of my head sketch. Going to do more of these, just to explore how form and lighting works. Its completely different when theres no reference you have to work from intuition mainly.
    Also Im still trying to comes to grips with layering coloring on top of a B&W image, I think my problem is when Im doing the black and white first I tend to make it too light, and when I put on the color then I realise it needs to be darker, must work on that.
    Fuckin love painting haha

    krysjez - heh, yeah probably, but I thought that I changed the face alot, as I was painting it. The next one will be better hopefully!

    More digital painting.

    Painted Dave from Orgazmo this morning. If you like south park, you have to watch Orgazmo! And Baseketball too.
    I wanted to explore soft and sharp areas. Basically I need to crack readability because I dont really know how to put that across in a painting. I just sort of hope that its viewed the way I want
    Ive included the ref I used so people can rip my painting apart

    (also I can see that the eyes are wrong, I wasnt too worried about getting a likeness in this one.)

    Just finished this painting last night. Spent bloody ages rendering it, it was helpful to do that because right now Ive forgotten how not to over render. I cant even tell what this even looks like anymore Ive got real bad tunnel vision with it! haha. What I can see though is the posing is really lame and boring.
    Please if someone can pick out things ive done wrong or need to improve on I would love to hear.

    This was a fan piece for the Yogscast, gaming based youtube channel basically. I enjoy there videos on minecraft so I thought Id paint this mash up of caricatures and minecraft bodies and background. Although the background is painted more realistically.

    From the first and last pages you've got some good stuff in here. I love the Rembrandt self portrait too! I've always found that funny. Rembrandt = Ledge. There are some pictures of women in the first or second post that I was particularly impressed with.

    Go Marc, go! You're dilligent as usual. I like your anatomy study, it's something I should really be doing, so next time you're at it, poke me and send me the refs, then command that I show you the results. Ha!

    I got a question though. In post 220 you mentioned hard and soft areas. I presume that's to lead the eye to the desired focal point. Thing is, the only sharp point i see is the contour of the dude's face. Am I missing something?
