    Snippet's Expected Sketchys

    Hello.
    Here are some speedpaints, most of them done in 1.5 hours. Some of them I dedicated more time to.(You can probably tell which ones those are)
    -Just trying to build up my visual library.

    I would like to go to art school but I am not sure what I should major in... Fine art or Illustration?

    PLEASE CRIT HARD!

    dang, those speed paints are really fresh. I love em. Do you start out straight color or do you do greyscale values first? Also, what kind of brushes do you tend to use the most. I've been trying to get into speed painting environments, but I'm having difficulty getting a lot of information in quickly.

    Pen study looks good. I would recommend pushing the values more in the shadows to give your objects more clarity (like behind the coffee machine).

    You're off to a good start in this thread, I can't wait to see more!

    Thanks for your input JailBird!

    I start out with color. I tend to not map things out before I paint them, but I usually correct proportions along the way and such. Then I go more and more detailed. I also try not to finish one area before the rest, but work on the over all piece.

    I usually just use artist's oils (blender brush) MOSTLY because I don't know how to use the other brushes. I'm kinda afraid to experiment with other brushes too.

    Yeah, I realize that it got muddied out. :/

    My process:

    Hey your stuff is pretty interesting. Try new mediums and using edges to your advantage to create more volume and depth in your drawings. Then your shading will create even more depth. The drawing is important to create a shape that our eye can complete, some of the round edges in your drawing look very flat like in the crockpot. All parts of the pot should work together instead of confusing us in different directions. I like your colours a lot =D You should work on the drawing though, all good paintings start with a good drawing. All good drawings have great composition and (most)structure.

    Hey I'm back. It is the summer now, so I will try and have a more consistent track record.

    Here is a study I did.

    I still have a long way to go. (Is my image not working?)

    My favorite is the rocky desert landscape in the OP, but you're pretty good with portraits too.

    Everything is better with dinosaurs.

    Here's some finished and unfinished crap, also some CHOWS and COWS. I should really start using references for those.

    I started school again. Why is it that when I have less time to draw I draw more?
    All of them are 1 hour studies, except for the tree bark study which was half an hour. The paintings are done with acrylic (I hate acrylic but I'm too poor to buy oils.)

    hi there! first of all, don't rush... be patient.
    that said, i like your initiative in painting and drawing. you should allways do what you want. but, there are some thing i can point out:

    organize your values. your greys are messed up, and that give the fuzzy look in your drawings. you can draw the shadow forms, the abstract forms of the shadows. that will differ some areas in the drawing. then, you apply a medium tone to that shadow. once you start to darken out the shadows, you aply the variations on the light.

    this is very important: try not placing a tone of the shadow in the light, and one of the light in the shadow. the lightest part of the shadow, should be darker than the darkest light of the shadow.

    hope you could understand. if not, just ask again!!

    keep up the good works!!

    hey man, really promising work, your studies are really good, i think what may help is thinking about what youre painting and how its working when doing studies and try to apply this knowledge when doing stuff from mind look how the surfaces in your studies react on the lightning and the enviroment, youre catching that effects very well in your studies - but looking at your stuff from mind it looks like youre not spending too much thoughts on this effect, take that white dog (?) for example - he doesnt have some clear planes and shapes that react on primary and secondary light properly, its more like white brushstroke somewhere on top, some undefined grey values at the bottom .. hope you get me right - keep up the good work and progress!

    Hey snippet,

    I see a steady improvement from post #12 and onwards.

    What Xbert said is really important. But you seem to be drawing at a steady pace and participating in the community activities which is great.

    Try doing some quick enviro thumbs from imagination, they tend to help to figure out where to put your initial values/composition.

    I did a second study of the same portrait. I was getting pissed because I thought I wasn't improving, but I guess I did.
    I spent an hour cleaning up the right side of the background and hand and book. Then just as I'm about to finish it, painter closes on me, and all my hard work was lost. (As I type this) moonlight sonata just happened to play on my music, like some kind of melancholic joke. But oh well, weirder things could happen...
    I love painter more than photoshop, but when it randomly shuts down on me, it makes me not want to try. Please excuse my emoness, but I'm sure you know the feeling.

    CHOW #276

    Here is my version of CHOW's The Changeling. Also, I just realized that in the movie Silent Hill, they thought the girl was a changeling. (I didn't know the history behind it.)
    I'm trying to let more texture show through and break out of my shell because I have an obsession to smooth things over. I want to be brave like... those usual suspects you see always making an awesome CHOW.
    But I do feel like drawing so I think I will make a doodle. I didn't make the deadline and no longer feel like working on it.

    Hey there SNippet!
    I really love your life paintings and sketches and your photo studies are really sick. Some of the earlier ones were a bit too rushed and it was hard to peel the foreground from background and understand the forms going on but you seem to have sorted that out.
    For your life painting just keep doing it, its really beautiful and you will learn tonnes on colour values and form.
    For your imaginative work, dont be scared to fail and let yourself draw from imagination more and you will see improvement quickly.

    Great stuff

    Thanks for the input TFsean.
    I decided to do a semi-imaginative artwork today. At first I started with no reference but then I decided to make a character based on one of my friends. I think it turned out okay. eek, its kind of scary, but I'm trying to break away from references so I won't always require a crutch.
