    Some of the less scrawly pages from yesterday and Bammes studies from today.

    A practice piece to address the problems I seem to have with painting clouds that have volume, stuck to basic hard brush 90 percent of the time, but had to resort to some cloudy brush I stole off the internet for the edges and stuff. 1 hour+, mostly on deciding where to put the people. lol

    Clouds are lovely but hard (I know what I will draw today )...
    It seems you used too small brushes, the individual little strokes shouldn't be seem just the great fluffyness I think... The middle of the top right cloud part is nice but the rest is a bit too heavy. I love this type cloud, totally 3d, the blobs are nicely shaded, there's totally form but smoothness as well.
    Why is the sky so dark?
    There are some nice flow is going on in the picture I think. My word is clumsy to explain better but maybe you understand.

    Wooli: Thanks so much!

    shiNIN: I shouldn't have stuck so much to the hard brush and softened the stuff, but in my mind I wanted to make really heavy clouds so I overdid it lol... And I don't know but i kinda like dark skies though it's probably a little unnatural haha. Thanks for the critique as always!

    For today, some reffed stuff followed by stuff from mind, which is still as crappy as ever(urgh that arm..), and decided to post my 30 sec gestures today althought they havent really improved.

    Strange painting mostly from memory, took a peek at my own back though. lol
    Took like three hours, most of it was spent cleaning edges and trying to recall what a back looks like. Still suck with stuff from memory...

    You have a very sexy back !

    I think the colours are a bit strange though, you'll have to work on them :p ( I know how hard it is, I'm all with you ! )
    The first studies from #70 are amazing ! Continue doing those !

    Thanks so much Shad! I was actually going for a body painted look, but it didn't turn out exactly as planned. Helpless without a reference lol.



    The following is yet another still life. Used the lasso tool a lot lol. Spent a lot of time on constructing the image instead of learning about color... Defeats the purpose of still life lol. And it got dark as I was doing it.. lol Had to wing it towards the end. It's a panasonic Lumix but I changed the brands and stuff. lol
    Took a whopping 3.5 hours. D:

    I think you should play with silhouette definition and lines a bit more. Used sparingly, they could give the focus your work needs. Nevertheless admirable effort.

    Mila: Thanks!

    Moonrage: Thanks, but I'm not exactly sure what you meant by that, did you mean i should work on silhouettes and lines more in my practice or apply them as techniques in the paintings and stuff?


    2 of the less crappy pages from today as usual:

    2 Photo studies, one in pencil and the other in photoshop. Spent loads and load of time on the painting, still got a lot to refine in my work flow. I sorta like the colours but I am so not digging my inability to render more cleanly.
