Axelga - Yeah Toppi Inspired. But also generally doing a lot of composing and image making at TAD. Constantly thinking about composition now.
NickyBeats - Thanks man! You're not doing too badly yourself! Gotta keep grinding to page 100
Some digital still life's. I prefer traditional media in terms of paint quality, but digital is great for composing and planning things like colour and big shapes: (sadly I'm not as competent with oils as with Photoshop, but that will change I'm sure!
Hey Tom I am so glad to hear that TAD is all you hoped it would be and more. I still hope I might get to do a class or two one day. These updates look great. The lighting studies are beyond my understanding of light so they are great to see. I doubt it will be long before you are doing more traditional studies and I am excited to see what comes next. I would so like to ask you a million questions about it all. Thanks for finding the time to still post.
Hey Tom, absolutely yes to meeting up in London to go sketching. I always really liked your pen and ink architectural studies you sketched in Cambridge so it would be great to see how you go about them. Just let me know when you return from your travels, it will be really cool to meet up.
As you can see.. I'm still alive and kicking! Back at TAD now.... studying super hard and working basically all day everyday, except when I am climbing or doing yoga! (Not much else to be honest, but I am really applying some energy these days seeing as I have 3 semesters left before I will be forced to try to make money from this thing called art!! (terrifying prospect but I'll get there!)
Anyway.. at the moment I'm doing a painted still-life daily in order to try and get a collection of paintings ready in time for the end of semester, and hopefully into some galleries. Who knows.
yea!!! whats up man!? good to see you working hard still! yea man, all of that work is gonna pay off like crazy, is that cast study just in your sketchbook?? that looks awesome man! did you have to spray it with fixative so it doesn't smudge everywhere? it looks awesome!
Ha, ha Tom you are living my dream for me and it is great to see how well you are progressing. I have just found your Daily Painting blog and thought I would give you a plug here http://tomfoxart.blogspot.co.uk/ . I hope you don't mind.
I'm back baby! Let's get this thread started again!
Some ballpoint figure studies I did today. Learning about designing an image, and not just copying from a photo for the first time in my art instruction. Very interesting, and I think these "studies" already look more like illustrative pieces than traditional studies.
