    Smuli: Thanks dude! An oh, do I know that feeling.
    Though it happens to me even if I'm not tired. I'm not sure if it has some sort of actual name but I call it artists blindess.
    The artwork one is working on feels ok/great when your working on it but when you take a break from it and come back you just notice all the things that are wrong with the work. That often lead me to abandon the whole work outright.

    Regarding the textures in higlight. Yeah it sort of hit me (Should have done so earlier actually) that the textures should be reserved to the focal points and it does seem to work pretty nicely.

    Started today with few master value studies.
    First one is Moran done with watercolor. Meh, Don't quite like the medium. I think it's because watercolor tends to loose value as it dries up and because I don't have much experience with it I can't quite predict how it turns out.
    So I go same spot over and over again till I get the right value and the result is bloody mess.

    Now gouache, that's my thing. K, granted, it too looses value when it dries up but much lesser degree.
    The last four studies are done in gouache (Paynes grey to be exact).
    These were so much fun to do! Oh how I wish I had full set of gouache colors at hand. Gotta go and buy a set ASAP so I can do master studies in color.

    That last one is superb!! Merry Christmas back at ya!!

    I'm glad you felt inspired. I mean I certainly feel the same way when looking trough sketchbooks here in CA and sometimes it's just that that gets me going when I feel depressed and frustrated. I believe it's one of the best things about this place.

    I'm doing my best to just keep on banging those studies. I'm just glad that when I'm feeling down or just plain lazy there's always someone whos gonna either crack the whip or just offer encouraging words like you just did. That keeps me going. So thank you.
    Didn't see this reply after my last visit...but I agree...that's why we all keep coming back here! I'm glad to be a small part of that in your sb!



    Loving the screen-shot in #132 even though unfinished is nicely done...as is the Robert Baratheon in#135...the proportions, lighting and skin tone there is quite good! The Velaquez study in #232...the Edefelt study in #243 are all of note as well!

    Otherwise it's great to see all the life/anatomy and enviro studies etc...the armor/metal/specular studies too...something I need to do.

    As for your question...Yes...my mood, health and level of sleepiness/or feeling tired definitely affect my work. One time I was trying to do a portrait/caricature after not getting much sleep. I struggled with everything. The next day after a good nights rest I quickly finished it.

    Keep up the good work!!

    Warmsoda: Hey thanks dude! Creatures come easy for me due to my general knowledge of animal anatomy and extinct creatures. It's those pesky bipedal naked apes that seem to be the baine of my existance.


    did som christmas shopping earlier and grabbed a fresh set of gouaches. To celebrate this I decided to paint another seago study. I need practice on this stuff. And I need to change paper because this current one I'm using is starting seriously annoy me.
