    wasabi89: thank you bro, the variety is two handed weapon - you try a lot, you learn a lot - but at some point, you have to choose your way.
    Yor: thank you very much!
    nor: thank you too man, it's kinda funny btw: yor & nor
    Whitesock: thanks, I'm glad I could share it. And yep, that's ink.

    Like many others, I’ve always been treating egg tempera like something inferior, especially to oil – the technique of masters. But last week, I discovered how wrong I was. In right hands, it’s as powerfull as anything else.

    Chek out for yourself what I created when I was mindlessly doodling. Mindless doodling is incredible by the way – you do the subjects you like in a way you like – no thinking, just spontaneous painting.

    First three are approx A3, the rest is pretty small about A5.

    Hey guys,

    Today comes a digital painting! Starting point was a temper painting I did few days ago. I tried not to loose the painterly feel.

    I included a step by step tutorial for those who are interested.

    Your scenic painting really capture the feeling of being there. I really like your use of atmospheric perspective.

    beatiful works, merl1n!
    Lovely loose brushwork in your traditional works.
    Would it be nice to take them to a more finished level also, like you do with your digital works? Keep up the good work!

    Fantastic environments and great improvement on the traditional side. Some of the pieces seem to be rushed however. I would love to see you spend more time refining some of the watercolours. Are you finding it difficult to make the transition?

    A great assortment if interesting environments. I think you're able to achieve good contrast in your watercolour pieces for example. I've had problems with that myself and try to improve in that area. However, I think that in some of the pieces some of the colours look a bit dead, that you've mixed too many pigments which have taken out some of the vibrancy. Perhaps that is not the case, but that's what I thought when I looked at them.

    I love your digital sketches and I hope that'll I see more of them.

    I barely could say this is digital. Nice work, especially on the blueish/yellowish cohabitation. The second image is the original, right ?

    moaribn:Nice to hear that, thank you!
    Harmageddon: thank you man, you are definetely right about having to take them to more polished level, however my goal right now is to make the paintings good from the beginning and to capture the impression. Details may and certainly will come later.
    GEB: hey man, thanks for dropping by. Your enviros just need those two little thigns and they will rock. No need to be so harsh on yourself.
    BHCS: thank you! Yeah, sometimes I just have to rush. Other times I'm just too lazy. I definetely need to give more time to some of my paintings though.
    At the beginning, the transition was very difficult. But now I feel almost as comfortable as I'm when painting digital.
    Greip: thank you. Yeah, that have happened many times to me. Watercolors don't forgive.
    dU5K: thank you very much!
    Mawh: thanks man, yep, the second one was the original tempera painting.

    And today: One place – five watercolor studies.

    lemming-clone-: thank you bro! Yeah, art is one big race.

    Today, I have another "tempera to digital" quick painting with three step process included.
    My main goal was, obviously, desciribing atmosphere of sunny-forggy day.

    Today, my beloved subject – marshes. I used black ink for underpainting and black and white tempera for actual marshes. I didn’t cover all canvas equaly so I was able to highlight what was important – the water, it’s shapes and reflections. What do you think, did I succeed?

    One of my old art teachers told me that as a rule of thumb don't mix more than three colours on the same spot. And some colours kill other colours more easily since they have more "dominant pigments". But I'm sure you know of that by painting. But it's a tricky bussiness, they don't forgive as you say.

    Nice art man, those brushstrokes (both digital and traditional) are delicious.
    Merry Christmas and I will look forward more of your work!

    bdouah: thanks man
    Ricardo Robles: thank you very much!

    And couple of oils from past month.
    The following painting of my grandfather was a christmas gift for my mum. Well, it’s far from perfect but the effort also counts, at least this time.

    very nice updates. these egg tempera paintings have such an amazing atmosphere (which i read is what you are trying to portray). there is one thing i would like to see though. in post 43 i see these nature paintings with a tree as the focus. well how much better do you think these little pieces would be if you incorporated some atmospheric perspective as you do in most your other paintings? For example, making the foreground object (little tree) the most saturated set of colors in your palette. As they are now Just thinking out loud. thought you might appreciatea new challenge cheers

    Great traditional art! Those landscapes have so nice mood, its looks like u paint silence.
    bewitch awesomness. And u mixing tarditional with digital) Cool cheat) And a question. As you think as it is possible to estimate the works what value they represent from the commercial point of view? And keep posting!)

    dU5K: thank you. I have been thinking about doing something with them. Maybe painting the background more sublte. However in reality, the background is a big dark mass compared to the tree. I'll try to get back to that theme and do it again anyway. cheers
    Trixtar: thank you
    Velocity Kendall: thanks bro
    n1frit: thank you, I'm glad you like my stuff. I don't know yet. The value depends on so many things, starting obviously with your own evaluation. I'm not planing to sell yet, so I have not been thinking about it much.
    Dope Fiend: thank you. I'm sure we will see soon.

    Today I'd like to share with you two digital quickees for a client. And I would also like to wish you the best to the new year.

    Happy New Year guys! And let's make it a year full of great art.

    Enormous amount of dedication in this thread. Personally I put very little value on things like talent and gifts. So I have no doubt if you're able to keep up this level of output that you'll improve immensly.

    Good luck and thanks for dropping by.
