stay tuned for the oil paintings
ok guys and girls... this is my first oil painting ever... and let me tell u ..
i screwed it up big time... i think i need to start with something easy.. like an apple or something... and im gonna do that next...
ok i just started my 2nd painting.. im gonna try my luck with portraits...
ok here is first layer of oils... and 2nd and 3rd for the face....
ok .. 2nd layer for the cloths... hopefully i will finish it tommorw or the day after...
Rain, what kind of oil paints (and canvas) were you using for the first time? For my first time, I used the cheapest kind I could possibly get on watercolour (!) paper and it didn't turn out half as nice.

well first thanks for your complement im glade u liked it
as for the the oil paint type and canvas.. i talked to a lot of artists before buying anything they all told me to buy the best paint and canvas i can find even for my first time.. coz if u got bad paint ur results will be bad.. and if u just started oil paint and no matter what u do ur paintings look bad u will be discouraged to go on...
i didnt buy the top brand not coz i didnt want to but coz i didnt find it where i live.. so i got Winsor & Newton Winton paints... and as for the canvas i got a white canvas (already gessoed with acrylic white) .. as for mediums .. Winsor and Newton turpentine and linseed oil ...
now as for practice.. i didnt post anything yet but if u like i can post some of the self training im doing daily.. like color mixing and value study.. i use the same paint.. but not canvas.. i use what u use .. water color paper 300gm but i also gesso it with Winsor and Newton white acrylic paint before using it.. it will make ur papers feels like canvas..
in the end.. ur painting will look good if ur drawing is good... the way u see details in pencil drawings is 90% of the painting process..
i hope that helped...
I would love to see some of the self-training you do. Thanks for posting these, it's inspired me to dig out my oil paints tonight and give 'em another go.
insanelight Thanks i wish i can be as good as u one day.. ur sketchbook is insanely amazing... u have a great imagination... how long have u been drawing ??
Kendall... i will post some of my self-training i do.. its not that good but maybe some ppl may tell me if im doing it wrong since im new to this..
and i really really really hope u dig ur oil paint and paint.. u have great digital work on ur sketch book..imagine if it was in oil ... give it a go a would love to see some of ur oil paintings...
what im gonna post next is a pure colors tints sheet which is a study of each color pigment and its gradient toward white... plus the grays...
and also a value study with black and white + color for a painting i may do in the future...
ok as promised ... here some of my self training...
-Pure color Tints (gradation of all pure pigments toward white)
- Skin tone tests (red, orang, yellow + burnt umber + white + black)
- Value study + color study of a painting
i do love oil more and more nowadays.. but i dont want to leave pencil drawing for good..
oil painting no. 2
one step to go i guess
Your portraits, inparticular the detailing of the hair and the anatomy are strikingly beautiful. Play to your strengths and although you may wish to persue digital artwork, I believe that by maintaining what your best at whilst trying other things is the best way to go. Your pencil drawings are evidence enough that there is still a market for traditional art.
Hey J-ace .. i agree with u in everything u said.. actually im waiting for my wacom.. but since im in a far far away country.. my wacom wont be here till march... so till it gets here.. im trying something .. similer but more traditional.. oil painting... it still suck .. i just finished one and a half.. but i cant wait to go digital... i know i will have much more fun.. in much less time...
by the way i guess there is still market for traditional art here ..coz digital art.. is still waaaaaaaaayy in its begining in here... in fact i have an oil painting exhbition in 6 months... i need like 42 paintings .. i didnt do any of it
but im glade you liked the pencil hopefully in practice i will do my oil in the same details...
more oil value & colors studies....

Hey Rain Walker thanks for commenting on my SB
Your work is amazing, your shading is especially awesome. All of your studies are looking so good.. And you enjoy anime style drawings too!
DBZ's art doesn't seem suitable for your level of skill though.. Why not try learning the style of the master Oh Great!: http://www.mangareader.net/657-32771...apter-120.html
I'm really looking forward to your future posts
