    Well, thanks to everyone for the constructive crits!

    @ PermaNoob : Your painting looks like a blissful dreamhouse, the type I want to live in forever!

    I never really appreciate the difficulty of making a digital painting until I tried to do so myself recently as part of my class assignment. The Wacom tablet is the worst enemy in my life now, seriously.

    When I had to do a digital painting of the sphere from a monochrome photo ref, my sphere looks like some black-white meatball that's soft and fluffy. It's hard to control the pen as it is (my digital drawings are very shaky and look like infant's scribbles), and painting digitally is worse.

    Did you get accustomed to the tablet the first time you tried it? Or did it took you weeks / months of non-stop training?

    Now, CyGear!

    permas noobis: Thanks! Your comment adds to the evidence that this work of mine actually has a bit of emotional appeal.

    Re neighbor's enviro: sky works really well; foliage texture is pretty serviceable; overall composition communicates the subject well. Crit: linework and modelling makes the house a little wonkety and slightly melted looking-- think the lines need to be more rigid and straight. As well, the deck and house need a tad bit more value rendering to make them "pop off" the picture surface. But, overall, a good brass tacks enviro.

    That's a good question Perma! I've seen a lotta people here on CA that are a lot better draughtsman than myself produce some utter poo when they transition to digital.

    Where ARE you coming from?

    Let's wait until June 7. Then, maybe a mini project for the mid-month and a standard project for the end of the month.

    That's my input!

    Ok, let's wait till 7 June. If CyGear is MIA by then, we will do mini-project and have it submitted by 15 June. If CyGear is still MIA by 15 June, then the turn will be passed on to the next guy on the rooster (me ), and CyGear can give make-up projects when he's back (meaning he will have to suggest 2 projects). LOL

    Happy weekends and more drawing,
    Xeon

    Hello

    Hey mates,
    I'm so sorry for my absence. I was on a schoo trip and so I can't draw anything because I have forgotten my materials. Actually, I have no picture.
    I'll upload my "Environment Picture" on Monday or Tuesday, so I suggest that we put in a mini project or something like that.
    Because of the fact, that it is my turn to make an assignement, I would say:

    -a little drawing from life
    -nothing special
    -just something you have seen while you were outside...

    Best
    CyGear

    PS: The town where I was on the trip was Weimar...
    I think some you know this town. Keywords: Goethe, Schiller etc.
    Regarding the drawing, there was a art school or school of art. And while I was going across the market place, I have seen a boy, sitting on a bench and drawing everything he saw. You know, it was so cool, because he captured me in his picture while I passed him. That's all

    Well CyGear, glad to have you back! I think I've heard of the name before...."Weimar". Hmm.....

    And now, on to CyGear's assignment! Deadline : 21 June 2010

    Good with me! An excuse to do a quick "plein air" watercolor.

    Weimar? For me, it's all about Nuremberg-- home of Albrecht Durer-- influencer of Howard Pyle-- the teacher of N.C. Wyeth-- the father of Andrew Wyeth-- um, I must now go to my shrine and make a burnt offering. . .

    Hey guys just wanted to let everyone know That I took a mini vacation last week. I spent the last few days staying with a friend. That is why I haven't responded sooner. The new assignment sound good. Something nice and relaxing, a random life drawing. Will be nice after the craziness of my past few weeks. Once again everyone, I apologize for the infrequency of my posts and updates lately, summer is always a crazy time for me.

    Nah, why apologize? Taking life slow and easy is good; that's my fave philosophy. The world is moving too fast and it's awesome to be able to slow down. I could do with my long vacation myself.

    @ Diarum: Best damn improvement ever! Compare this tricycle shit with the first few drawings in your SB. It's like the lamb has become the tiger! LOL You've become an inspiration to me that if one puts in the determination, one can really learn to draw. Our teacher showed us some drawings of a student in another class. Her first few drawings of boxes look like abstract art, but the later ones were rendered to the point of photo-realism!
    The only thing on the tricycle is the wheels looks punctured.

    @ PermaNoob: You've been lazy recently, son! Play is good; just don't lose the momentum. Once the momentum is lost, it may be hard to get back!
    As usual, you're the king of digital painting among The Penvirate.

    Now, waiting for Kamber and CyGear. LOL

    Yeah. . . I was talkin' watercolor. But, I talk about a lot of stuff!

    Lily pads. (In my old Canson book with HB Conte and black Prisma, about 40 minutes, maybe a bit less).

    Those lily pads sure looks crunchy! Potato chips! LOL
    Now, we're waiting for CyGear to post his!

    Ok, for our next project, it will be a perspective city-scape, urban drawing. You can use any media, anything (including your own waste), as long as the theme of the drawing is a view of the city. Feel free to play with perspective!

    You can use rulers as well. You are also free to make your city as busy, clustered, as "concrete-jungle" as possible!

    Hey Xeon, what a crit! Now I can't see anything but tater chips when I look at my own work. (I was more worried that the "water" didn't read all that well).

    Anyway. . .

    Crits for ye olde Penvirate:

    Xeon: Pretty good job-- the little hollow soup spoon is very solid, you've done a pretty good job with lost and found line work on this item, and the reflection reads pretty darn well. As well, the sheen on the bottom of the dish reads good when I back up a few feet from the screen. Major crit: I'm not totally buying the modelling on the dish itself.

    Diarum: very good job on depicting the trike in "deep space." Main crit: wheels are kinda wonkety-- practice your ellipse drawing.

    PermaN00b: Dang that's a nice turtle depiction! Main crit: the forward underbelly of the turtle should be in somewhat sharper focus given that it is a forward element.

    Cygear: hey bud, don't get bogged down, work on the new project for the end of the month! If you're having trouble with the old projects, just knock 'em out as quick, rough sketches!

    See you'uns all at the end of the month!

    diarum wow! great perspective! i love the fact that you inked it. really makes it look clean. couple small crits, the fronts of the buildings look a little busy due to the lack of any detail on the sides. (ie: the alleyways between the buildings). but again, well done. and way to be the first penvirate to turn in on this one! damn lazy dog days of summer. i guess we are all suffering from the syndrome a bit.

    Hey Diarum and folks!

    Oh yeah Perma is right, we're all damn lazy dogs of summer.
    But mine was due to extreme workload at school! I actually have regrets going to school sometimes. LOL

    My stuff in pencil:

    The Penvirate's Sketchbook - "No one fucks around with our art."

    And I trace over it digitally and then painted it:
    The Penvirate's Sketchbook - "No one fucks around with our art."

    I'm having monstrous problems trying to color the stuff properly and make the brush strokes look neat and tidy, but it comes out crappy and out of the lines, so I use the eraser to get rid of some of the crap. I tried to draw straight lines without relying on any tool but it comes out wavy and shaky.
    Digital painting is much harder than drawing.

    If you want to push back some of those buildings a bit back, like the 2nd building or the 3rd building on the left, you can start them off (the base) on different locations (meaning, same vanishing points but different angles of sight lines coming out of those 2 vanishing points), instead of using the same set of sight lines for all the buildings. Then when the ground part is done, connect everything up to the 3rd vanishing point in the air.

    Beautiful 3-pointer you have there! I always love 3-point perspective!

    Kamber's hand hurts, so he's excused.
    Now, Perma Noob and CyGear! LOL

    Btw, the next guy (Kamber) in the loop can start posting his assignment!

    Okay! I still got nothing to post 'til late Saturday re cityscape.

    BUT

    Assignment/General: Cowboy gunfighters.

    1. 1870's era American Cowboys (two of 'em) sqared off and trying to kill each other with "Colt Peacemakers."

    2. Point is to put one of the cowboys in "deep perspective"-- no side views!

    3. Try to lightly hint at an enviro-- saloon interior, street, desert, etc., but not real important.

    4. Let's shoot (pardon the pun (!)) for the end of July. . .

    And, I won't recycle any of my "Magnificent Seven" sketches, honest! But, if you wanna use that movie for ref-- go right ahead!

    ok guys, this is FAR from finished. but that is why i am posting it. i realized as i was working on it today that there are probably several more hours of painting to go on this one and it has been long enough already. so this is what i have so far. this project was a freaking bear by the way! this has really pushed me into unfamiliar territory. good job xeon. by the way, sorry if it sux in any way. i didn't use any references for this one. (i know, i know). just dove headfirst into trusty old sketchbook pro.

    and now kamber with the cowboys! dammit guys what are you trying to do? make me better or something! lol.

    2. Point is to put one of the cowboys in "deep perspective"-- no side views!
    3. Try to lightly hint at an enviro-- saloon interior, street, desert, etc., but not real important.
    4. Let's shoot (pardon the pun (!)) for the end of July. . .
    And, I won't recycle any of my "Magnificent Seven" sketches, honest! But, if you wanna use that movie for ref-- go right ahead!
    Ok! I'll start the cowboy shit next week!

    LOL, a single cityscape project truly has thrown all of us into chaos! I'll think of something bigger next time. LOL, nah, something on a smaller-scale. Your painting is really good, though. The thing I like most about it is the ambience and mood of it. It's like a soft sunset and the city is calm and serene. My mind just wanders to good old times when I was a kid....LOL
