Raminafshari - Thanks man!
Hey, this is a question. Are my photos too monochromatic? How can I break away from that?
I'm uploading this WIP that I'm really struggling with. I tried to break up the monochrome by introducing pink, though the top half of the picture is completely unfinished.
1) What do you think of the trees in the foreground, and how they relate to the trees in the mid-ground?
2) What direction should I take this?
3) Should the pink sky affect the trees more? Should there be more pink in the photo? Is pink the wrong choice?
Bah, thanks so much for the help in advance. Color theory really blows my mind.
Well, here is the final piece.
I'm not happy with it for a few reasons:
1) I don't like how monochrome it is (need some help with that)
2) I don't like how there isn't enough of a focus
3) It lacks polish
4) It needs something in the foreground to make it pop
I am happy about :
1) It's the first enviro that I've done that is actually showing me that I'm progressing. It will take a lot of practise, but I think I'm on track.
Major props to Whit Brancha's Speedpaint 1+2 tutorials. They have helped me immensely.
Stay tuned, more stuff coming soon. And feel free to drop some C&C, I'd be ever so obliged
Hey guys, how're y'all doing today?
It's bloody chilly outside, and so I'm a little inspired into a winter scene at the moment. Im using a painting by Ludwig Munthe as reference, though I have tweaked it a little bit.
I really need some advice on the composition, especially concerning the lake on the right. Is it too small?
Again, this is -very- WIP (only spent about an hour on it so far), but I'm learning so much!
Also, major props to Whit Brachna for introducing me to the sharpen tool...my god, my images are so flat without it! I don't apply it until the end, but it makes a world of difference.
Anyhow, it's a bare-bones thing, but please give me some advice if you can spare it! Thanks a lot CA,
I'm very happy with how this turned out; it took about 4-5 hours, but it looks pretty damn good.
C&C on it? Please be harsh, I want to get better, and though Im proud of it...well, I want to know -exactly- how I can make it better next time.
Newest photo from ref; somewhat happy with it, though it looks crappy at a higher resolution (as per usual, /sigh).
I am happy with the work on the fabric, which is really the study I was going for. Just gotta keep at it.
C&C if you please!
Ah, forgot to mention...photo is from ref!
Downloaded a ton of brushes from
Samson Reaper today (thanks, if you end up reading this!). Played around with them for 10 minutes and this came out of it.
Did this one speedpaint style; pretty happy with it. No reference obviously, and Im happy with the colour palette. Its a bit dark...could have used another light source but I got tired after ~2 hrs. Props to SamsonsReaper for his process vids on Vimeo! Quite inspiring.
i really enjoyed the winter scene. composition is weird to me though. dont know why....
thebluepuppy - Hmmm I think I know what you mean. The right side is a little barren, and the path kind of goes nowhere. Any other thoughts?
Having some trouble with this one. Been wrestling it for over 3 hours now, and I can't get it to look right. Any tips on fixing the skin tone up, and/or dealing with the hair would REALLY be of help to me.
I'm not certain which brush really works the best for hair. If anyone has any suggestions, that'd be great. But it could just be my mechanics; I've never been good at hair.
