    Well here's a quick sketch of a girl with a terribly drawn gun. If anyone has any websites to recommend for gun photos, that'd be awesome?

    JaikAwesome, thanks for that website. I've been thinking about trying to draw more technology and that site will definitely come in handy.

    Today is a rare day that I'm putting everything here that I drew today. I felt pretty frustrated with drawing characters today. I did a lot of reading and looking at other people's work - which was both enlightening and intimidating.

    It surprises me that landscapes are always the paintings that I love most and inspire me the most.

    But I'm trying to put more of the "fantastical" into my landscape thumbnails, but I'm having a hard time doing that cause I always step back into the safe understanding of now nature works.

    Here's a series of speed paintings, using just the lasso tool. This was an awesome exercise - I had a lot of fun. With this I really get the cleanliness that I have been striving for!

    I dunno if it's unprofessional to only use the lasso tool or not? I think it could be awesome if I learn to use it with brush strokes too )

    Might be hard to read the concepts in my head, let me know if it just looks like jumbled shapes.

    Is it unprofessional? I don't think it matters as long as you create good stuff with it IMO
    It's not even cheat, you use your own hand to make the shapes... If it floats your boat, do it. Even if you abaddon that later, experiments are important Not mentioning the stress relieving joy "yay I did something clean". I totally can relate
    I can't criticize your scenes at the moment... It's clear what they are (at least I have an interpretation, I'm sure only about the first two. it's not a problem, it's fun and fine when you create something pretty that makes people to use their imagination), I miss some colors or better planned lighting or something but I think it's a pretty good start. They definitely have some charm. You lassoing style here suits high, not so rounded mountains, crystals, ice formations the best it seems. The hills in the last one looks like chiseled rocks.

    Thanks ShiNIN! I think I will keep doing them, it's a good way to make a painting out of chaos. And be less controlling.

    I did some more of them, and I redid the last one a little bit because I really liked it but I knew it wasn't reading like I thought it could.

    Oh and a WIP of a painting of a picture I took when I went to the river

    Did a gladiator composition study,

    Here's where i'm at on the river study - just gotta keep doing them. I know... I see an improvement but I'm still not where I want to be.

    I like your river pic a lot. The others give an illusion of a more complicated thing they actually show with their sketchy nature... Good, I'm curious where these experiments will take you in the future.

    Trying some new stuff for rendering, did a little test. Could definitely use some more practice.

    Some random ink sketches of stuff from other artists for loosening up this morning.

    I finally finished it!!! This painting has been sitting in a box for a couple months and torturing me every time I walk by it. I know I need to learn some traditional so this week I finally finished it.

    I did a grisaille for it - and it does still show through. I'm pretty happy with it but there were some mistakes that were hard to correct because I couldn't remake the paint the same color later.

    The original painting is Thomas Moran - Autumn

    Also a little dragon painting from reference, tried to do some imagination painting of a dragon but got frustrated and used some reference.

    Alright here's some stuff I've been doing recently.

    Been doing a lot of stuff and not saving it, and more pencil drawings that I haven't been taking pictures of.

    That river scene you have a couple of posts up looks really nice. So does the oil painting. Im just starting oil painting myself.. so messy >.>
    A crit for your figures If I may, try and use darker values for the shadows and give a bigger range, also if you colour pick skin shadow sides from an image I think you will be surprised how saturated they are.
    All in all this is looking nice, keep pushing

    Hey thanks for stopping by my book. I agree with ^. Those environments are killer.

    As for my influence map. Lol That was the hardest thing to even do. My influences can not be described by some plain map like that. Everything from nature to space to technology to movies to animals to infinity truly inspires me. I don't think a style or artist inspires me at all to be honest.

    Hey!! You've got great painting skills, specially with those backgrounds. I like the experimentation you did in #186, great way to sketch ideas for scenarios

    Well I had a good day and a bad day.

    I didn't even want to post this imagination sketch - I just really don't like it and am really frustrated. I want to draw cool things from my imagination so badly but it just isn't happening.

    Did a rabbit study and another portrait too.

    Hey guys- so exciting week. This week I did some plein air painting. I got a french easel It was super hard but super exciting and relaxing. People were walking by but no one said anything (probably cause the painting wasn't that great! haha!) I think I brought the wrong colors for the palette. I only had ultramarine blue, cad red light, yellow ochre, and flake white. This made it really hard to make the yellow highlights that I needed. I learned that white in oil really muddies things up fast and I gotta learn how to make my palette cleaner. I also think I screwed up with my medium, I mixed linseed oil with mineral spirits. I believe there was too much mineral spirits because whenever I dipped it in it was just too wet and would make weird dissolving patterns on the canvas.

    I also did some color studies - some from other paintings and some from imagination. I brought one to a fuller painting but it wasn't really working out so I stopped.

    here's some figure sketches, poses too. I really like drawing the face and it's hard not to focus on it for me. I need to draw more lady faces though.

    Awesome book man! I like the lasso Idea and then the horse and rider you did in the Forrest. Those were really well thought out.

    Damn, sketchbooks were out of wack there for awhile. Now that their back I'll post my stuff from yesterday.

    @Jaik - you should try plein air! I learned a ton from that little failed painting I did. I have a lot to learn about mixing colors though - I'm finding it hard to do the motivation to do some color mixing exercises.

    @Pete - Thanks! I'll have to keep doing those little lasso tool comps

    Here's a study of a castle - don't think I got the mood that was in the photo right, but my buildings are looking a little better.

    An anatomy/muscle study. I had a lot of fun doing this, after a few days I'm thinking I could a little softer on some of the edges.

    Here's another lasso composition I did awhile ago I forgot about

    Here's some stuff from today.

    Did some 20 min each leg studies from photo models - been practicing cross hatching with a pencil, really thinking about the angle of my shade lines and the way the inner shapes

    A quickish paint of a factory - used one layer, which is out of the norm lately. Squinting a lot really does help - my value understanding is way off

    And an enviro from imagination - stick with and add the little details really pull out more of an atmosphere. Stay really loose

    Overall lesson today - there are no secrets besides hard work and time

    These architectural studies really look like they are paying off. Dont be scared of a bigger value range though, try throwing a black and white layer over the top of your photoshop work to check values, neat little trick Good updates though!
