    I'll get some more digital stuff up on here soon! I'm still internet deprived at home.. Anyway.. I was watching the end of a Crimson Daggers session with Dave Rapoza, so I joined in.. he was doing a color study after a photo of an Indian dude.. I opted for an aborigine with face paint.. hehe.. so I'm posting both the photo I found online somewheres and my study.

    I was focusing on the colors, and eyeballing them correctly (lotta back and forth.. haha), so the face is a little wonky..and the colors of course.. but I'll keep doing them and hope I get better at it! I often do like a greyscale version and then color it, but I wanna start doing colors directly.

    wicked study man an i dont really know what im talk'n bout cuz i thought it up right know but the stretching skin on th shoulders might need a bit of attention to help balance the color composition aspect of study the color of the head shoulders an belly kinda create a diamond shape or tilted square that rotate the eye in a clock wise motion from ''red'' to i geauss ''light bronish'' to ''red an light brown shapes'' to ''dark brown'' back to red that shorta serve as a pedestal to show off the face ......haha i know thats not quite what yer study'n lol ill be quiet now haha stay good dc

    Here's todays Crimson Daggers study! N.C. Wyeth this time.. spent a lot of time figuring out the colors on this one! It's hard, but I feel I'm learning a LOT! Like I went with blue first for his coat, but it was screaming way too much.. after a ton of painting over and over I found that desaturated reds and oranges read like a blue-ish that was a lot closer to the piece I was studying from.. Knowledge +1! Also the fact that he's wilfully used lower saturation on the colors of the dude, than the clouds in the bg was pretty awesome!

    Just swinging by with a piece done for the Desimal Group over here in Norway. I know the guy is a little confusing, lookin' like a blacksmith and holding a wrench, but hell.. that's what the brief read I was thinking I'll maybe add some grit and dirt smears on hus face and arms and such as well (and maybe change the wrench to a hammer, or something like that.. more blacksmith-y)

    Sorry haven't been posting in here lately--keep forgetting to do so.

    It's great to see the studies. In the Wyeth one, more blues could be incorporated into the shadowed areas of the jacket and pants.

    The warm/cold play in the mechanic/blacksmith is good. His forehead is bit flat; a highlight could help that out. It's good that the background has asymmetrical lighting, because the front/symmetrical pose in the middle of the canvas can be boring sometimes. Maybe a more interesting set-up next time.

    Can't shake the feeling I've posted these before, but I couldn't find them in the last three pages of my SB at least.. oh well.. Did some interior illustrations for Catalyst Game Labs and their Shadowrun 20th Anniversary rulebook a while back.. The book is out, and I know Hurricane has posted the cover he did a while back so I guess it should be OK for me to post these on here as well Had a lotta fun with these!

    Once I get the internet at home again, I'll be more frequent! To all my SSB-compadres; I'm sorry for not being in your SB's and critting and whatnot.. I'll get around to a proper round once I don't have to travel and hour to and from having access to the internet

    Long time no see!

    I'm digging your studies! They look great and will definately do you a lot of good.
    Especially digging the Rockwell and Wyeth studies.
    Forgive me for giving you a harsh crit, but when you design your own characters from scratch you have a tendency to give them a bit generic faces.
    While overall anatomy and poses are great, I sometimes feel that the faces are lacking a bit. The face and the eyes are mirrors to the soul, so I think you could benefit from giving them a bit more attention. In your studies however, there are great emphazis on faces, so they look great!

    This doesn't ring true for all of your pictures of course. Some of them have some nicely detailed and animated faces. Like the blacksmith/mechanic for example, and the sketches of the guys in turbans. Make-up lady and marine Stalin both have good faces, and the summoner lady (I think I know that face!) from the shadowrun pictures also have a very good face!
    But the rest of the guys from the shadowrun pictures do look a bit generic.

    Another crit is regarding the moustache mech-hand guy.
    Sword blade looks a bit too flat and too shiny.
    I know the sword isn't really that important in the picture, and when you have to work fast you have to simply things a bit, but a few more lines could give it a lot more "beef" and make it look a lot more vicious.
    Have a look at these pictures for reference. Really look at the blades!

    I really like the summoner illustration btw.
    The "strings" and the wireframe kinda look on the summoned guy are very cool,
    and I dig the lighting. Good mood. And the guys grilling a dog in the city look cool.
    Really like the reds and yellows in it.

    And I'm looking forward to seeing more of those colour studies! They're a delight to the eye.
    Keep it up!

    cool suff. I like the blind hyena hunter thing. Well, that's the last thing I saw from jumping around pages anyway. Keep doing those master studies. I have yet to, but just take my word for it lol.

    peace.

    Behind every great master is a great student...
