NICE... love the contrast in this one
u paint better metals than me [but then again im just a noob at actually PAINTING]
but i love that metallic surface reflecting everything in front of it!!
the table seems a bit rough though
good work and KEEP 'EM COMING
Xcarbon Sorry for my abscense. Been working some and just been so smashed after work. Thank you for your feedback, u are totally right, the table is really rough got tired of it. But metal is tricky for me and you are not a noob Just a person who keeps develop your skill. that is far from being a noob imho
smrrfette Thank you Really appreciate it!
some shitty effort this week. but anyway a small update.
That still life is looking lovely so far, great color relationships and reflections! I really liked the traditional media stuff you posted early on too, I would love to see more of that if you still do that. Anyway, keep up the good work!
ClockworkLives Thank you! Not a bad feedback at all, Ive just been leaning towards the digital medium and photoshop because I feel like I need to learn alot about handling the program. But working more with traditional should help me alot too Thank you!
i like those gestures!! specially the smexy one in the middle right to be honest i think if you do these everyday you will see improvement very quickly [i think you will start to see improvement in just 3 or 4 days thats how good they look to me]
but remember you have to keep up the pace!!
and i know it is hard to do... specially after work......[most of the sketches/gestures i do are done at work whenever i find free time coz i know once i reach home i dont know what mood will i be in ]
and nice work on the painting .... i think one thing that is missing is a bit of atmospheric fog in the distance [i hope this makes sense] you see the castle/buildings far away look like they are behind some fog but the water just below them looks very saturated i hope this helps below is the image what i could do in 30 seconds......now if you used a reference maybe the fog might have not been in the reference but its just my opinion that without the fog the feeling of distance is lost.
hope it helps :]
I need to do some studies of hands. no critiques here otherwise, keep on drawing and making mistakes. nobody ever got good at something by learning it "properly" expect the pitfalls and strive to be better.
Hey Nina thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. I think you are doing really well also especially as you are feeling so tired after work. I know that feeling myself and it isn't easy to draw or paint. I think you have done a really good job on the saucepan with the reflection of the onion and garlic. Your digital paintings are really improving.
Xcarbon Thank you for your great feedback! Looks like I have a problem with atmosphere ^^ but thanks for reminding me of it. The paintover is gorgeous and I cant really understand how u improved that picture with just 30 sec High five and thank you!
Thanks for the encuragement, I do need to do gestures practise and Ill jump at it cant say thank you enough for the help! Thank you thank you thank you ^^
U motivates me alot and I hope I can repay that
Yes if you have access to a mirror, do it I did some hands from photos but in my opinion, doing it from your own hand rocks and made hand practise even more fun
AoenPhoenix Thank you! Ill do that and good luck on the hands If I can motivate a fellow CA member to do something, Im really happy.
MarianRowling Thanks for stopping by mine too I struggled with the saucepan and onions but in the end I really enjoyed it.
Thank you and keep painting yourself
hey im happy to help :].......all i did was take a soft round brush with opacity jitter and run it across the horizon line then erase the whiteness in front of the trees = 30 seconds!! High five back XD
im liking the new painting the mood is well done gives out the feeling of cold yet hot temperatures..... this reminds me of skeletor's base from He-man.
good work!! dont really have much to critique ........the mountains in the back look good...they have feeling that they are far away.
keep up the good work.....and hey post your self portrait lol
Oh! He-man! my brothers and I used to watch that cartoon and they also had some toys like skeletors castle. I remember ditching barbie to He-man because I loved the cartoons so much
Didnt have that in mind at all when I painted except that I wanted to mix cool with very hot temperature colors
You should be bolder and messier with your brushstrokes, 'cause it will makes spotting shapes and forms easier, then you can ease them/go over with lower opacity/pressure. It will also give you better color variations.
I also like that you already have a nice sense of lighting, and i adore that it's very bright, but not overexposed. I think your sense of lighting will help you loads when you getting into extreme photorealism, if that's somewhere you want to go with your style. Also, umm, if you have Cs5 try using the mixer brushes on dry and wet, they really help with getting textured but smooth rends-and they are like oils so its nice.
Btw, you look cute!
If i don't reply to questions on others sketchbooks, send me a message. I'm very scatterbrained
