    I love those inks where you say about practicing anatomy...personally I think they stick out for originality and individuality (like some other stuff on the first pages)

    rod: woo, PSYYYYdukkkkk!

    MacTire: Answering that in this post, Techincally no ref I guess.

    Emil_, liam.c, lennon, feeesh: Thanks !

    ccsears: Thanks mate, I appreciate it

    xbrianx, ThomasM, Placeboast: Thankss!

    Pfir8ich: Well, this comes with practice and familiarity with using the tablet pen to subtle effect. Sometimes I find it handy to hold the pen further up so I can get a lighter touch. Also it is often necessary to pick the exact tone you want to put down rather than using a darker colour transparently. As you show in your demo when you stroke over another patch of tone transparently you get these annoying overlap areas. I recommend buying and watching the Zhang Lu downloadable videos. I'm really a fan of him and you can see the brilliant control he has over tones. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYWjht6ESGM


    So I was asked about the antler painting Elk'd if I use ref or not, and I'd been thinking of explaining how I go about these oil paintings at the moment. Just because I feel like it !

    For all of the paintings I posted on page 3, I create my reference digitally, either using photos or simply drawing up the scene/character from imagination. For Elk'd I drew the character digitally first without reference so I could then paint from this study from my monitor.

    Here's the digital study I created for this painting.http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...7&d=1276763983

    I usually just do them in black and white and invent the colour as I paint with oils, but this was the first and I hadn't gotten that down yet. The colours changed anyway.

    DeKal, Pfir8ich, alive, Chr. Steam, MacTire, Majora: Thank you !


    So I realised I've really never done enviro studies or speed paint excercises, so I figure it's high time to add such things to my spare time repertoire. So to start it all off here's a vag train from a photo

    Also, I'm very keen to buy a Tablet PC so I can take my digi painting out and about and do studies from life. I don't know which are good for painting though, does anyone have any suggestions or places I can find out?

    Nice stuff in here!
    As for a tabletpc, definitely check out tabletpcreview.com. I found the reviews very good and informative as well as the forums over there. For drawing outside, you have to be careful with glossy displays. I bought the HP Pavilion tx2500z about 2 or 3 years ago. It's great, but the glossy display is really hard to work with outside, especially when the sun shines. At that time, nearly every tabletpc had the glossy ones, but i think it's different today.
    What i found quite annoying was the lack of customizable hot keys. Maybe you don't need them, but it was really frustrating for me to not being able to just change the brushsize, switch to color picker etc. on the fly when the pc was in 'tabletmode'.

    Nice stuff Simon. Sorry I cant help you with the tablet pc question... or anything else for that matter. Ill just have to join the choir of voices singing your praise. Funny thing is i saw the train car study and immediately thought "this things got a twat on it." Only later did i read your description of it. What the hell is that thing?

    aiRaGe: Thanks for the pointers man, I hadn't thought of the screen surface quality, that's definitely something I'm going to have to pay attention to when I look for one. That tabletpc review site is the most confusing site I've ever seen!

    Jason Scanlon: Cheers man I appreciate it. I have no idea what that train car is ! I found a photo on a modern ruin site, it belongs to an old furnace place. whatever that is - http://www.hoursofdarkness.com/Carrie_Furnace/035.htm



    Here's a quick study before bed. This was interesting, such slight breathes of tone to model the lights and mid tones. 98 or 99 percent gray makes all the difference in some spots . keepin the tones close!

    Done from this great photo by Zemotion ! http://zemotion.deviantart.com/art/N-171877555?q=&qo=

    this is wonderful; that second eye peering straight at the viewer really makes it for. Takes it from being just a portrait to being a much more involved painting.

    Truth be told that whole post is outstanding. The nude(s) are as unsettling as they are beautifully painted. The Man with Antlers is jaw-dropping, love the drawn approach as opposed to a painted approach. Compositionally it feels incomplete, but that may be because I'm a fan of redundant complexity.

    looking forward to seeing more. You do some fantastic work.
