    Gaaah i dont know where to start malakuko, im a first timer in your SB amazing dedication in here you get so much done son! Also when talking about gamut masks on your colour wheel Have you found a way to mask off or limit things in digital at all or are you talking about traditionally, as i've just finished reading Colour and Light by James Gurney and have no idea how to translate this technique digitally in order to improve my understanding of colour. Cheers man will check back soon!

    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

    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?

    When Bobby chiu first started making youtube videos I remember him saying that every morning he would do a master study. Then paint it from memory. And then paint a painting from imagination using what he learned. I think il give that a try for a while. Hopefully I dont tap out too soon.
    So heres my first one. A portrait by Anton Azbe.

    Mannish the manly minotaur is finished.
    Adventure time fan art. Love that show so much. I dont know why I wanted to paint Mannish, Ive only seen him in one episode. He was just so nice even though hes all muscularly muscular so I thought he deserved to be held up high and admired.

    Great work man. The colors pop nicely and the composition works. You've really grown like crazy over the past few months. I'm ashaimed I haven't been able to keep similar pace, but that's gonna change. Actually your comment in my sb got me picking up still-lifes again. I'll definately force myself to stick with daily studies from now on if this is the outcome.

    ismo - Thanks man! Heh Its funny because when you said do studies as you do a painting, that got me thinking, Ive spent way too long working observationally. So im trying to be more imaginative now

    Parsakoira - Thanks Im starting to better think about what I do. No more college to distract me.

    Been working on this Ogre painting I started a while ago. Changed it alot, it was just boring!
    Should be done soon, then onto the next painting woo.




    Photo studies




    An imaginative fart.


    Gallen Kallela study (maybe ismo knows this guy)



    Drawing



    Women






    Wanted to do a quick painting of this weeks chow, warrior Alice. Not going to enter or finish it. I want to sub paintings for practice as I do my big paintings.
    The pose took me forever to figure out, in the end still not good, but i learned alot

    Thought I'd stop by having seen the ogre in the S&M stream. Really nice sketchbook here Marc! Great to see the studies coming in and paying off!
    Incidentally, what do you mean when you say painting from memory? Are you doing the study and then painting it again afterwards without looking at the original or your copy?

    Best of luck and keep up the great work!!!
