    Jeez, some real good figure work. The imaginative stuff is also great, I am really liking the application of anatomy to them.


    I think your work would lift off if you found a bridge between your imaginative work and traditional work. They don't have to be different beasts. It would be awesome to see a finalized fantasy illustration where you use a lot of reference and apply your (wonderful) knowledge fundamentals to make a finished painting. You clearly have the skills to render and to apply good value, color and composition.

    Just a suggestion for you to play with. Good luck!

    @Saraiva, thank you a lot for the nice words. About blending both styles, sounds good, but I'm not sure about how much time I may need for it or if someone will pay for that. If you're talking only about self improvement then it absolutely sounds great.

    -----------------------------------------------------

    In case someone have any interest about the painting process of a noob, here I leave this...

    I've used Cadimum Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Alizarin Crimson, Sepia, Prussian blue, and Payne's Grey for this. First I start with fast (unskilled) strokes trying to leave some grain behind, I work almost absolutely on dry.

    Then I put some more depth, some transparent strokes are leaved as they are, some semi opaque tones are blended a bit, I abuse Ochre to get some semi opaque mid tones.

    At this point I put blue, grey, or sepia in every mix, work with few water and try to get some texture.

    It have MANY drawing flaws but anyway >.<

    @féfé73 pleased to hear that from you

    Was messing around with references, ideas, and overall boredom. The horses are some original design I may develop more later while the pencil drawings at the end are from HoM&M IV.

    What I wanted; fast sketches of some esque goblins, what I've done:

    Name:  Gouache goblin 2 s.jpg
Views: 295
Size:  178.3 KB

    On the first one I missed the mix of greens from the head and ended changing tones, didn't touched gouache in a while so a few tubes were dry, and that may explain why I kept adding layers, detail, and stuff.

    On the other side I like how scanned gouache look better than the original work a lot of times.

    Generally gouache looks more like the original scanned, brighter colors, cleaner, etc, it even looks better than the original artwork, acrylic on the other side, lose quality on thin layers and glazes, but can be blended more organically and I get more fun from it.

    @Monkabit, playing is the word, while I keep struggling with gouache at every single subject, with watercolor is like I'm getting worst with the time, at least with fast paintings. Quite frustrating mediums.

    Some random stuff I've done, two of them from life, guess which ones :-)
