    hey Marianne

    Good to see new stuff from you! Especially your traditionell stuff looks fresh.
    In your last painting the man's head looks a bit too big. His size compared to the girl just looks too big.
    But that should be easy to fix.

    Keep it up!

    Pixelwalker: Hey Lukas! I scaled down his head a bit. Thanks for pointing that out!


    Lots and lots of figure studies. Some charcoal and others graphite:

    how big are those figure studies? it looks like you're using a lot of your wrist to draw because of the jagged line quality, try to remember to use your arm and to think before you put down a stroke. The rendered drawing looks solid though!

    skMOP:They're VERY small, because my sketchbook is tiny (around 3x5 I believe) but I definitely have been fighting with myself to use my arm over my wrist, even when using bigger surfaces. It doesn't feel quite natural yet but I'll get there! Thanks


    So chilling at RISD pre-college. One week in and I'm drowning in work! Here are two oil still-lives I did in my Painting Major class. These are some of my first attempts using oil, and they're strictly using grayscale.

    I have survived RISD pre-college I apologize for the lack of updates. I honestly didn't have time to upload anything let alone sleep. I have quite a lot of work to share which I will gradually begin to post as I photograph them.

    All work with color uses colors mixed in a limited palette (usually a primary, raw umber, black, and white). Also, all work below is from direct observation. Paintings are oils, drawings are in ink and charcoal/colored pencil

    More work to come!

    kevin_: Thanks, I'll be sure to!

    MeteorCat: Thank you! I'll hopefully update more regularly again

    skMOP: It was incredible. I'm still trying to just digest all the information I received haha

    Trying to break back into digital art and what better way of doing that than redesigning my OCs!

    I wanted to do a concept that engages the viewer from both the front and back view, so I drew the characters facing opposite directions. I'll most likely add a background as well. For now, rough comp sketches and silhouettes!

    Nice sketchbook. There is improvement in your understanding of light and color, that is great.

    Keep going with the figure studies, that seems to be one problem that pops up a lot in the work you're showing.

    The progression stuff is nice, just don't post too much of it, or it may just look like posting fodder. Might be a good idea to take all your progression shots and put them in a single post, and make other posts with other work done simultaneously.

    The acrylic (I believe it was acrylic) painting of the man in the red pettycoat has a major problem with the placement of his left eye (was that intentional? I didn't notice any mention of it being so). If you want to correct it's placement you'll need to repaint it down a bit and closer to the nose.

    Perhaps do several more studies like the study you did of the suit of armor, and use what you learn to do another creative piece.

    I like the videogame and other cover art repaints that you did, especially the Legend of Zelda one (because it's one of my all-time favorite games!).

    Keep posting, post lots more!

    jorvaa: Thank you!


    Finished concept sketches and a 32x38'' oil self portrait over an acrylic grisaille done at good ol' RISD (I apologize for the wonky coloring. I tried to edit it to the best of my ability)

    rastaray: Thank you! I fixed it
    Sebastian Wagner: Thanks!

    So I'm preparing my portfolio for the moment that I'll potentially destroy my future awww yeahhh. Doing the infamous RISD bike drawing as we speak and refining some pieces, so there's really not much to show but some sketchbook pages.

    I just finished watching Lost (can you tell? haha). Graphite portraits and a little watercolor scribble.

    nice drawings and that close up face in watercolor page is awesome!
    i also like the oil studies you do....especially in #214. did you use only black and white and made a block-in with a brown color in the beginning or are you using black, white and a brown color the whole time? when i just use black and white i always fuck up (i dont' know....but i just don't like it) and started to use a dark brown and a white for quick studies. but starting with a brown color and then just using black and white might work...

    Woah! It looks like u got loads better in just one post! Great job on those portraits!

    I'd comment only on the bartender : his proportions are kinda weird.His body is a lot smaller than it should be according to the size of the head.
    Anyway...again good job and keep going

    cedule: Thanks! Actually it's only black and white, no brown involved (but when I do block in with brown it's usually raw umber heavily doused in gamsol). It just appears brown because the cooler grays have white paint mixed into them and the warmer grays (the browns) use the canvas itself as a white, so to speak. Also, the photo itself may be a bit misleading haha sorry for that. Those two pieces in particular began with soaking a rag in gamsol, then in a midtone gray, and wiping it over the canvas. Then I went in with a clean rag, soaked in gamsol again, and carved out the whitest areas. Afterwards it's just building up with different tones of gray.

    rastaray: Thanks so much! And you're right ah I need to fix that!


    A few studies today of some very sassy figures.

    20 x 30 inches, graphite trompe l'oeil from RISD pre-college rehashing the tale of my sculpting adventure and the bust's untimely demise. You can probably see how I rushed it at the bottom half. That's what happens when you pull two consecutive all-nighters and class is in twenty minutes and you still have half of the piece to render

    Also, a quick 1-hour environment thumb that I'd really like to flesh out for my portfolio.

    haha starting my portfolio too for art center. its scaryy knowing that its real.

    For the environment I find it helps when theres so much architecture to do a line drawing first, just so everything is a bit more structured. And not sure if you're doing this already but keep a overlay perspective grid on another layer that you can flick on and off throughout the process just to make sure everything is lining up right.

    I didn't catch the stream, but just judging from the thumbnail, I would get rid of that middle building, I feel that by removing it you could open up the viewer to see more of the background and improve the overall composition.

    skMOP: haha yeah, isn't it? It's crazy!

    The line drawing fits more to my nature as an artist which is why I decided to freehand it actually haha once I put in lines for architecture, I always lose the freshness of the piece, so I tried to preserve that this time around. I'm not sure if I was successful in that regard. BUT I am using a perspective grid and have my horizon line and vanishing points marked and such

    I definitely see what you're getting at about removing the middle building, and I'll have to play around with that idea a bit. I wanted a more secluded feel, and I'm afraid if I remove it, the space will feel too open. I guess I'll have to experiment and find out!

    Thanks for the crit! and if you need help choosing pieces for your portfolio, let me know!



    WIP for the port town and another updated version of my novel cover. I love painting over the woman's face every few months. Although it feels like I'm never getting anywhere with my art, this always shows me that I have made progress, even if it's in a very small way like this. You can see the progression below. The very first version was painted a little less than a year ago.
