    Wow, fantastic portrait in #96, and I love your traditional studies. They're lovely to look at in among all the digital. Not to say your digital stuff isn't also spectacular, which it is. Just that it's nice for me as a traditional artist to see stuff like that in people's sketchbooks.

    Keep up the amazing work!

    thanks Mane

    Thanks Candra H. It's seems like the more time spent with a pencil just drawing the better everything else gets. Thanks for staying in touch with my sb.

    Seen RoboCop 3 I take it? Dreadful movie, but nice study on the Splatterpunk duo who are plotting to do in 'ole Robo.

    impressive Big Orange! Did the Robocop's profile study above tip you off or did you just recognize their faces? I did a robocop marathon while painting, watched all three movies - it was a downhill slide that crashed when I tried to watch the tv series. I couldn't get past the opening of the first episode. The first Robocop is a classic but the rest of it, eh.

    Well I twigged when I noticed your study of RoboCop - he didn't look like Peter Weller, so must've been Robert John Burke.

    Thats a really interesting study. I like the light and how you worked the paint and colour gradations from his forehead to his cheeks. Also, really nice expression.

    One thing though. I cant see anything beyond the edges of his face. Not sure if thats intentional but it does make the whole thing look very dark.

    Thanks Candra, I agree regarding the darkness. I darkened everything after painting with curves and pushed it too far killing some of the pixel content.

    It's interesting, something I'm struggling with right now is getting my work to read on different devices and screens well.

    My old macbook pro finally took a dive, mobo and harddrive is shot and it was too expensive for repairs so I picked up a cheap laptop to get me by for now. This screen I have now isn't as good as my old macbook and even after color calibration it tends to overly lighten everything in a strange way. In terms of value range it is noticeably worse but I've noticed something interesting, although it flattens out images it also picks up things differently. I don't know how to describe it exactly but my work looks flat to me on this screen and I see different problems through it.

    Other artists images show in a similar way but what is really revealing is that many professional artists work viewed through this cheap laptop still look great! Kekai Kotaki for example, even with diminished and flattening look of this cheap screen, his work still is whole and robust looking, just lighter.

    Other artists like Dylan Cole's work still looks awesome.

    This has me studying their color and value selections versus mine and wondering what the difference is in their work. It's quite amazing and although a screen like mine isn't good to judge as a benchmark, it is revealing that these great artists work seems to read well comparatively regardless of the quality of screen.

    I got this rembrandt to read better but at the cost of darkening it too much.
    long reply, sorry, but thanks for the comment Candra.

    These started as composition thumbs but I kept pushing pixels and they turned into these abstracts. Loose stream of consciousness paintings

    Hi AllyAlbon,

    thanks, yeah I can't stop talking about David Leffel. I read his books and they helped a lot, I like the way this guy thinks!

    No worries. It was interesting reading about how different screens display art differently. I've had the same monitor for years but thinking of getting something bigger, and hearing about your experiences reminds me to be aware of that. I also got to discover two artists I didn't know about so which was cool.

    Those abstracts look interesting, especially the second one. Love the dripping effect and warm colours with the little splashes of green.
