    Just dropping in to say, baby threw up and is unhappy, so sketchbook checking will happen tomorrow. (lol)

    I'll do the study and try to locate the terminator.

    Most of the reason why I wanted to paint on the same background is to kind of force myself to get used to correcting mistakes on the same layer, as I've had a bad habit in the past of doing new layers so that I end up with 100s at the end of a small painting. But you're right that it's useful and a good idea to keep them separate.

    Yeah, what I meant by that was to just have two layers. One for background, one for the foreground.

    Anyway, hope all is well.

    Big study incoming tomorrow! Small study for today since I accidentally took an 8-hour nap. (Yes, a nap. I laid down at 3 PM and woke up at 11 PM. I still plan on sleeping tonight, but I may need to a bit of luck with that.)

    Sadly I am going to be disappointing you at some point, because once I dig my scanner out of whatever box it's been packed in I'm going to be doing pencil studies as well.

    But thank you for the kudos!

    Worked on this today until my head felt like it was going to explode. I didn't blend everything together as well as a few others I've done, but I strangely happy with how it looks.

    On the terminators, they were kind of in odd places because of the glass. I have a separate pic showing where I think they are. That's assuming I understand what you mean (I think I do, it's just the area(s) that get neither reflected nor direct light).

    Summer (my daughter) is back from her grandparents' and shows no sign of being ill at all ever since she threw up.

    Yay!

    I found my scanner today, along with my books.



    But I couldn't get the scanner to work on my computer.




    (But it does work on my husband's computer, so the show goes on . . . )

    Did some Bridgeman and also some Rubins (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/014...00_i00_details NSFW)--which isn't impressive really, just colored in bits with my colored pencils. It's a good supplement to Bridgeman though.

    Ey, you seem to be working quite nicely forward here

    And good job on the egg! Hehe, I tried one yesterday which certainly didn't go as well as yours...

    That's not a bad goal actually. 100 pages of study. That would get me practicing quite a lot. . . . Plus if I did two or three a day I'd bang it out in no time. Probably not all Bridgeman (or maybe if I repeated it? decisions, decisions).

    Well, to be fair, you did yours in a more difficult medium from what I could tell. Mine's digital, which means I can erase, paint over, undo, etc. pretty much freely.

    I'm going to take a closer look at your sketchbook later on today. I love your homemade sketchbook, it's awesome!

    I would suggest flip-flopping between Bridgman, Loomis, Villpu, and life drawing.

    Just do a different one every day during the week.

    For example, Monday and Wednesday are Bridgman days, Tuesday and Thursday are Loomis days, and Friday and Saturday are Villpu days. To finish the week out you do Life Drawing on Sunday. This of course is just an example. Just do what's comfortable for you.

    Either way, I'm excited for you!

    Thanks that's very kind of you

    But acrylics are paint-over-able... And definitely could have gotten the shape done better regardless *cringe* Hehe, well if you see my sb later then you'll notice that I have lots of such stupid errors. One of my fails is that I sit with my face buried down in the paper and don't notice anything.

    And still, pc's aren't that easy to use either regardless of layers and easy erase. Really, your egg is great

    I wish I could do this! I don't have any copies of books by Loomis and Vilppu, though. I can definitely put them on to "to get" list, but it's going to be a couple pay periods before I can afford to pick them up. (I used to have copies of the PDFs of Loomis's stuff, but when I heard that they had been reprinted, I deleted them.) I do have a book by Hale that I haven't really gotten into yet, and I've heard he's good. I suppose I could substitute another book for Loomis until I get ahold of some of his stuff. I've got a book by Hogarth, but I've noticed his stuff doesn't really look very good at all and I don't know that I want to trust what he teaches because of that. I'll be looking through my collection, such as it is, to figure out what I'll do. I think I'll post up a list of the books I have and pick from the list systematically.
