oooooh, I like your work. And the plague doctor gimmick
Nice penciling! I think you should do more life studies(or photo refs too), like the wacom tablet pen holder on the last page. Also, maybe try varying the work length a bit? For example, doing studies like this: quick, quick, quick, long, long, quick, etc etc. Try doing a longer project, but keep cranking the shorter studies too!
I just cannot believe how many digital paintings
you did in the last 10 days. I think that we should
all take an example from you, cause you are a real hard worker.
You have great sense for colors and color combination, but I would
advise that you do some greyscales also, so you could learn more
about values and shading. The environments are outstanding, especially
the snowy mountain and the Nevada one in the post #117. Pure eye candies.
The female octopod concepts in #118 is promising and you should continue
evolving that piece. You had some frustration with that Aladdin guy in #120,
cause you are not ready for it yet. It's not easy to work and render out the
human body correctly. Especially not with some dandy clothes on. That is
why I suggest that you work grisaille first, and then build up some colors later
on. Feel the form and the structure first. You are doing still live paintings
on a regular basis, and that will make a huge difference in your battle plan.
You are improving fast, but you will improve even faster with the current
mindset and attitude. I told you before, you are a special kind Mrs. Voodoo.
Keep on bringing the sun upon us
Damn, you work hard. And it's showing, huge improvement even over the past month. Those latest couple enviros are great! (Though the tower in the second BW picture from your latest post seems a little weird, perspective-wise... like it's tilting back?)
Edit: Also, I love that Tim Hortons cup a couple of pages back. Even with the logo just loosely scribbled in, recognition was instant on the colours and design alone. I feel weirdly brainwashed. =D
Love the medieval towers; that slight touch of texture is just perfect. I also got the leaning-tower feeling from the second one. I think part of the problem might be the ellipses; they should become flatter as they near the horizon line, but they all look about the same to me. Even the top one looks too wide to me for the angle that we're viewing the tower from. [Illustration of ellipses in perspective.]
