    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. :/

    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.

    This is for the COW. I'm not sure I'll be able to finish it before the due date.

    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.
