Few studies from the path week or so. Not including all the horrible pages of gestures. I've been having huge problems working from imagination. That D3 binge really rotted my head. Sticking to photo, life and book studies for awhile.
Started on a Still Life, it's a blue/orange complimentary setup. I'm getting pretty familiar with pastel colors now. Wanted to try a different approach to color application on the glassware. Working on the folds, fruit and small details today to finish it off.
Then a material study, i really suck at armor and folds, i'll be doing a few of those for awhile.
Also a doodle page, i haven't doodled in so long, it was nice just chilling and drawing whatever :3.

That's a great doodle page. Keep fighting the good fight buddy. Don't
worry about hitting the imagination block. It happens to the best of us.
Using that opportunity to do studies is probably the best solution in
my opinion. You'll soon be stoking those creative fires again.
A large tree trunk size, full with autumn aroma inspirational aspiration
you have unleashed upon us, with your latest berserk power. The
eminent approach and the high excelling shine within your traditional
paintings and drawings, is something to yet be analysed. You have
that look, the strange aorta in your head, which gives you these impulses
to be awesome in every aspect, creating fascinating angles, and unexpected
fantastic results. Not a single fax machine on this blessed globe could not
handle the message and subconscious waves that you are transferring to
our natural receptors. My highest opinion goes for your latest creations,
you do not stop, you never stop doing what you are doing, cause
by ceasing your activities could develop a cosmic unbalance with
a catastrophic results of the largest measures.
Thanks mike, i think i'm starting to feel the juice flowing again. I need to remind myself not to drop my sketchbook for such long periods of time.
Oh very helpful tip, i'm still learning some interesting ways of applying it. Figuring out how to texture has been a bit of a nightmare.
Thank you for the compliment
Always a pleasure hearing from you LP, it keeps me going. I finished off that pastel by adding more detail to the folds in the background. Then really punching those highlights out some more on the glass to give it the finishing shine.
Here's some more stuff, mostly doodles. Also school is wrapping up and i have a pretty light summer load of classes, lots of updates coming!
Pretty dominant performance, da still life is bringing
the heat on in mid winter time. Throw some shadows under
that orange and under that big red thing, they deserve
some shadows, shadows do not come for free, but they
definitely deserve the price. You just be consistent with
the dynamic pose practice, cause it will pay off in the end.
The last abomination like creature is scary and he is in an
undecided position, he wants to go down, but he wants
to go up at the same time. He is a spooky big
freakish surprise for the Christmas elder choir,
which will just about to meat him.
I'm in two minds about putting a shadow under the orange object. You could go 2 ways - exact still life or total light dissolving the objects like Degas. Whichever, you need to be bold and wreck a few pictures.
