I really need to start digitally painting more. I bugs me how much I suck with color haha I got some gurney studies, a very crappy pair of headphones, and a few screen capture studies. I have been making alot of improvement with the loomis studies although you probably cannot see because my pictures are really terrible. I'm working on the same 369 heads over again and the improvement of line quality/confidence and proportions is amazing from when I first started. I also had a little doodle I did after I finished the 369 heads ha. I also have a few sketchbook pages in here. please rip my head off as much as you want! please!!!
been working on still life's in photoshop haha my coloring is unacceptable. my goal is to do one every day. here are three for the last three days. do you guys have any interesting suggestions for still life's? I'm still remaining steady on my loomis heads as well, doing about a line of 15 heads a day on top of doing a value study of a head from a screen capture of a movie in mechanical pencil I wish I had a better camera. I'm afraid that I should be doing more work from imagination but I'm just now starting to really appreciate/enjoy training my left brain. I have also been watching alot of Sycra's videos on youtube. If you havn't checked them out already I highly recommend them.
Really awesome stuff, especially June 9th's post... That last one was really...
Mind... Blowing! *Chuckles at terrible pun*
And yes, Sycra is awesome! What's even more awesome is that you're setting goals!
Hey N0N, thank you for stopping by my sketchbook and for your kind words.
You have some really great ideas. I'm seeing a nice mix of abstract and surrealism going on here - very cool. I especially like
your attention to detail and how you manage to capture emotions and expression so well.
Keep at the studies! I know they are boring and we all hate doing them but I guarantee that you will see some results and it will be so
Post #12 (the loomis head studies) made me want to cry a little because I don't think I would ever have the patience to do all of
those. Hats off to you for all of that hard work. Keep it up.
@Viciona: thanks alot I'd hate to think that my work made you want cry
@LMagpie: thanks haha yes people tell me that all the time
The last three days of studies. Starting to feel a bit more comfortable with still life's. What do you people suggest when a person is very allergic to oil paint use in replacement? acrylic I'm guessing?
Nice still life studies! I think my favorite is the headphone painting.
I don't really have any experience with oil paints but other than acrylics perhaps you could try water soluble oil paints? They might
not contain whatever it is that is making you have an allergic reaction. Tbh, I did use a small pack of water soluble oil paints once and
they weren't that great but at least you can blend with them since they still dry slow. Oh, and they were pretty stinky too...
at least, the brand that I was using was.
@Viconia: Thank you I will definitely have to try those oil paints out.
@clanlord: haha thanks brothah! Hopefully all this studying will pay off. I find constantly find myself breaking down faces into the planes mentally wherever I go nowadays.
Been still doing my studies... my recent still lifes are a bit embarrassing so I'll post em later here is a little poop I've been working on while taking time off from the head. 530/1000 of them done btw!
