NickyBeats: thank you very very much. Velocity Kendall: thanks bro Gilles: Nice to hear, thanks Terjis: Yop, more work the better. Thank you. joshualyness: Thanks. I used to start monochromatic, but now I usually apply color from the beginning. But I change it regularly via adjustment layers and so. insane lemur: thank, yeah, the best thing is that I can relate to them any time even with my digital stuff.
Here comes second pack of quick studies of atmosphere. Probably last for now. To keep it fast and simple I do these using only limited color pallete of yellow, red, blue and white and two filbert brushes n. 8. One for light colors and one for dark.
Check also the photo of my workstation. Small window – big view.
Sushy: yeah, very small indeed.
Wheeljack18: thank you very much man, I'll keep this thread alive for sure.
towy: you are welcome and thanks for dropping by too. I'm not sure I uderstand the second sentence though.
And for today my entry for eow and complete concept for a client in two versions.
Hey, I like the first one you posted but I noticed there isn't much colour variety. It's hard when dealing with an ice scene, to not have something blue all over. I added a little warm light to the back, and desaturated the smoke, to separate it from the background. Also upped the contrast at the crash.'
wilkerson: hey, first of all thank you for finding time to do this! I really appreciate it. You are definetely right that the image could use more colors, however the emotion, which your image generates, is way different, much warmer and more positive. Sometimes you have to stick to more limited color pallete to convey the right feelings. If you look carefuly, you will find that there is lot of variety in colors, but without sacrificing the freezing feeling with hint of danger and mystery. I hope I made my point. Thank you again. As I said I really appreciate when someone cares enough to help like this. Jeff Bartzis: thank you very very much! tehmeh: Ah, you are welcome ... thanks man! Bunrt-Ice: thank you, it took some time so I'm glad you enjoy it.
And for today few digital sketches. Those skies come directly from my atmosphere studies. Now all I have to do is to pick a study, enlarge it and use it's colors.
great sketchbook you have here - by the looks of it, it was a great decision to start working traditionally, and more from life. I have no crits to give you really at this point, other than perhaps throw a few more drawings up! as they're the foundation of all really good painting. Anyway, thats obvious so good luck!
Velocity Kendall: thank you! BenjaminJL92: Thanks, good to hear, because atmosphere is my obsession. Naked Ninja:, Thank you, the simpler the better. ThomasM: thank you for kind and supporting words. Yeah, no point to paint if you can't draw. I'm too lazy to scan all the drawings but I guess I will choose some and upload them in the future. :/ krypt: Thank you very much man!
Today few 1 hour still lifes from recent weeks. I'm starting to use more paint - finally. For long time I've been to afraid to do that and was pointlessly saving it.
Hey, but I think I should use even more, three times more.
Wow... man, i call my self a fan of environmental stuff and your pictures really speaks to me. All those studies are just great and such dedicated work makes me understand what it takes to do such things. Best luck for you, dude
