    hyperfinite's sketchbook: Updated 06/14

    Now that I'm in TAD, I guess I should maintain a more active presence and stop lurking. So, without further ado...

    Here's the ten pieces I used in my TAD portfolio that hopefully will soon enjoy a blissful future of obsolescence:

    And here's some of my recent studies I've been doing from random images selected via the LiveJournal public image feed. As the weather improves and it stops raining constantly, hopefully I'll be able to bring the tablet outside with me to get some plein air painting done.

    09484312052010 - Update: Just coming down off 'Roid Week 2010, which involved driving around to a bunch of local interesting places and taking a lot of roids. Polaroids, in case there was any confusion. At an average of a dollar a shot, I've burned through about $50 in film, which gives me a considerable pool of options for personal studies, now. And I will continue doing studies pretty much until TAD starts up...

    08422217052010 - Update: Even more studies to keep getting in the groove for TAD, less than a month away now. I've been avoiding toxic studies with ambiguous or restricted usage rights, but I decided to do one of Bruno and OJ for the hell of it. Maybe tomorrow I'll get out and get a Plein Air study or two in if the weather complies.

    08465119052010 - Update: So, I totally failed it at painting a still life yesterday, so I made up for it by seizing the opportunity to do a couple of speedpaintings of Daedelus while he was mixing an awesome live set at dublab...

    Hyperfinite, absolutely great studies. Really liking your approach. You seem to be getting a good grasp on the digital form. Those photo studies will teach you a ton.

    Few things I noticed which could need some catching up to do. Perspective issues here and there, foreshortening looks awkward on some of the figures. Also you could benefit a great deal from studying anatomy more.

    When you do photo studies I would suggest to pay attention to accuracy so you will train your eye hand coordination.

    Great stuff and definitely pushes me to study hard.

    Keep up the good work and I'll see you at TAD online.

    i like how you use the grainy brush to create all kind of textures. also those two black and white studies look really good

    Hey, thanks for the feedback guys, I really appreciate it.

    Jussi Tarvainen: Thank you so much, it's good to hear from another TAD student and I certainly can't wait until classes start up. I saw your sketchbook and you've been improving by leaps and bounds; your recent anatomy studies in particular have gotten really good.

    Yeah, the photo studies are definitely helping a lot, I started doing them to improve my speed and I think I'm just about to the point that I've done more studies this year than I painted all last year. I haven't been focusing on perfect accuracy so much as I've been concentrating on efficiency and achieving accurate colors and values without picking from the reference, ever. I used to flip a grid on and off so I could fix my errors, but decided that was kind of cheating since it reduced placement and separation of positive and negative space to counting grid lines and after a point I stopped learning anything from that. Next step: when I'm painting studies fast enough and accurate enough from photo, get outside and do some plein air studies, skipping the whole photography part.

    I agree, I definitely have a lot of work to do on my anatomy: my understanding of anatomy has been diminishing since the day I decided I needed to concentrate on environments because felt I was especially weak in that area. I really should brush up on my anatomy more than I historically have been. Luckily, I just found some life drawing sessions on Tuesdays and I've been meaning to drop in for a few before TAD starts.

    Qikalain: Thanks, I've been out taking polaroids of things to paint studies of (not Bruno, unfortunately) with a bunch of different types of expired film that gets a lot of interesting grain and the colors shift around as the chemicals start to decay, and I've really been trying to capture that in the studies too in addition to the sexy backwards peeled frames. I'm glad to hear the extra effort is paying off.


    Here's the latest study. Unfortunately it was taken with a digicam, so the colors were a breeze after all the expired polaroids I painted, and I had no fun replicating the grain of the photo, just a dash of low opacity digital noise. However, I really need to get better at painting vehicles and tech as well, and I have a bunch of digital photos but only a very limited amount of that kind of stuff on polaroid film right now.

    edit: I should also add, this is the first painting I've done in Photoshop CS5. Which doesn't feel any worse than CS4, yet.
