great work here! ur brush work kind of reminds me of my work. for the latest update. The girl's lifted foot looks like its floating instead of resting on the wall. work with the shape/perspective. ur off to a great start. keep it up!
@frekkie - thanks , i've felt like the color thing has gotten easier but its still got ways to go. The eyes on #6... lol yeah i know its an older study so theres not much reason to go back on it.. its more visible to me now though heh.
@Yogeshj - looks like you keep the brushstroke loose kinda like i do, but i think i do it more because of how slack off i was back when i first attended jc art classes, and i think setting time limits on everything i do doesn't allow me to get really technical yet. And neat Intuos 4 set up. makes me jelly. the intuos 4 that is, not the stand. but the stand is pretty cool too.
Holiday weekend = me getting nothing done so I'm playing catch up at least until i like I've done enough to make up for it. all i got done today but i have another one in line.
done today, wife gets a week off for spring break. means I'm spending some of the time i usually spend painting doing other things, but we've started to collar ideas for something she has been wanting to work on in terms of designs for a few stories of hers.
its been hit and miss for the past few days =\ so tonight i speed through a paint in about 20 minutes just to see what could come of it if i was to use a reference and just try to get it all down quickly.. Also some thumbnails of ideas I've been trying to work out. random thumbnails mostly. Bottom 4 are the ones I'm kinda enjoying the rest are just kinda rings i barfed up on the screen while i searched for ideas.
honesty no idea what happened with the portrait though. colors got kinda muddy i think, i am kinda tired but it felt nice just to do something since i haven't gotten to in a few days apart from the thumbnail ideas. I'll have more coming monday when the schedule gets back to normal.
i really appreciate the comments about my use of color. for the longest time it was the worst but i think rendering things out is making a little more sense, i hope i manage to do the same when it comes to more imaginative works and not just on studies.
and crits and/or ideas on the thumbnails would be supper and will help me take them forward. mainly the bottom for unless something is brought to my attention about the others that i may not see.
