    JackAnimated: thanks bro. I enjoy making them : )

    Nihil_: yeah, thanks. I try to do that for every one of them, kinda, and it does help...most of the time.
    Thanks : )

    Hello, tharr. Back again, with another update. I didn't get to do as much as I wanted to, but I managed to do some stuff at least. School has been abusive to me lately, and so has personal life.

    I managed to do a self-portrait. mostly imagination, though I needed to study my own facial structure from some photos I took. of course, the lighting is imagination too. Speedpainting video below.

    Study of a piece of armor. Not much to say. Speedpainting video of it below.

    Attachment 1345804

    just...random rocks. Kinda fail to be a study, but eh, care.

    Attachment 1345809

    landscape from imagination, or..forest. Doesn't matter. Fun to figure out the colors, even though it's mostly overlay/color layers over grayscale.

    Attachment 1345813

    These two next are a bit special. I always wondered how to actually render the mountains, and the trees, as shown. I don't have an awesome brush that " breaks" and creates random rock formations for me, so I have to come along and do shit to make it LOOK like I do. Kinda.
    As for the trees, I never figured out how to render them in a distance.

    And, oh, right, this one. a 15 min practice scene-thing. Fun as crap. Found inspiration from another painting on CA , regarding the placement of people. Not much more to say, I'm afraid.

    Right, I'm back with a quickie update.
    Got some stuff done, most notably the illustration below.
    I also got this kinda nifty selfportrait that is also available in speedpainting format below.
    Also some other...stuff. Just random doodles.

    Though, the illustration. It kinda bugs me that I have this inability to create what I want to create. the crowd in the background was a chore, but I only blame my own idiocy for painting them wrong. So I didn't end up correcting those mistakes I made.
    As for the leader/person/lady in the foreground? I spent about the better part of an hour just figuring out the fucking lighting on that brat. I got it looking good and not too shabby in the beginning, but I had to change it, didn't I? "Just to make a couple of minor corrections," is what I told myself, but that wasn't it. I wonder if I just grew ashamed of the thought of showing this to someone. It mostly looks like what I had in the beginning anyways, so it's weird how I can get lost in absolutely nothing for a while, and gaining almost nothing. That is dangerous to my workflow...

    anyways /rant. I have a couple projects coming up, I think. I'll see where those go.

    But without further banther, enjoy:

    OHI: Hehehe, well thank you very much. Glad that you enjoy this.

    jelmerschmit: Thanks a lot. As you requested, here's moar in this post.


    Did this random thing. I have no idea why i did this, but here it is.
    Attachment 1354202

    Kind of a failure in design and rendering. Idk why I can't get myself to actually paint people anymore. I need to do more studies to keep the interest up.



    Attachment 1354203

    Unless you don't know: artrage is extremely hard to use in pure painting mode. Though, I recommend fucking around with it just for the fact that it's kind of weird and interesting. Kinda like that program called alchemy.
    Damn, I gotta download that sometime.

    Attachment 1354204

    Lastly: some study thing. I couldn't be arsed to work on it more, kinda didn't work out the way I wanted it to anyways. But here it is.

    Attachment 1354205


    lastly: I have some speedpainting stuff ready for upload, i just have to upload them along with some other stuff I haven't finished yet.

    Right. Quick update.

    made a couple sketches. The second one is actually a bit older than the other, but whatever.

    The third one, the illustration...man that gave me a headache. Took me probably 5-6 hours, and I just finished up the editing of the footage to make a speedpainting video. I'll probably edit it in at some point when I get to upload it.

    I hope you enjoy! : )

    Hey Toffers, i am liking them studies!
    It is good that you are applying your studies through personal work.
    something i should do more often.
    I am by no means an authority to critique.. all i can say is really spend some time on drawing fundamentals, it will improve your paintings,such as the figure drastically.

    Lumens: yeah, you know, you have a point. I need to do more fundamental stuff in the forseeable future. I've for some reason not done so many studies lately. I don't know why. Need to focus on rendering, gestures, and some anatomy for now I guess. Thanks for stopping by : )

    Right, I'm sick right now, so I haven't done much. Got a couple of doodles done though, and I just focused on some rendering and color and stuff. Really simple, derivative, but i learned a ton. Especially about creating nice edges and such.

    They're all in order of creation. As you can see, from number 1 to number 3 the rendering has improved...though I got lazy on the fire, sorry : )

    Hey I like your sketchbook, your studies are really fantastic but I love the warrior chick with the army even more (though you should work on the background, just saying). keep on drawing.

    Silent-samurai87: Thanks brah. And naw, I won't work on that painting more, it was a quick(yeah right) experiment to see how I'd fare at an illustration after only doodling and studying for a while. Thanks for stopping by : )

    Still....kinda sick. Ok, pretty sick. Though that gives me time and not the energy to paint...therefore I've painted... more than usually actually, when I think about it.


    Did two portraits...badly, of Alissa White-gluz, and Lisa Foiles. Idk why I had to paint them...

    Then I did a random painting, focusing on edges, values, lighting and such. Just trying to get the basics right on him.
    Then I remade one of my self portraits...that was cool to do.

    Now, except for the first one here, I'm actually genuinely a little embarrassed to post this...It's all I've got right now, nothing else. Just 20 minute doodles.

    First one is a kind of unconventional self portrait. 2nd and 3rd are both just doodles. The 4th is something I did while trying to make some recording software work. Lastly, the 5th is ...well, it's grind, basically. It's just some warm up, to creating something. You can see that I kind of had no "go" in the beginning, starting to get meaningful and kind of cool in the middle towards the end, and at the end I just say fuck it. I'll be doing this every day at least, to warm up.

    Dannyphoto : Thanks, man. I don't think it's too impressive myself, especially considering the people that frequent this site, but thanks to you! Appreciate it : )


    I did some studies. I have a competition image I'm creating, and it's so fucking full of detail that I might just go fuck myself in the eye socket rather than to anything remotely similar today, or the next few days. So studies it is. I also did a rather loose b&w shot of some ritualistic dance, just to take my mind of all the tests at school right now.

    I don't really know where I'm going generally, I feel like I need advice from someone who KNOWS studying. What the fuck am I doing right now? I don't know, but I'll at least keep trying!

    here they are, in all their study-glory.
