Hey all, looking forward to working with you! Here's my first post. It's a values study based off a Sargent painting:

Started as a movie study, but turned into a sketch to experiment a few things.
One of my problems is the softness of my rendering so, this time i tried to render with hard brushes.
Syle: good one, but i think you could push the values more.

Nice Eddy, you paid good attention to keeping your foreground/focus elements in sharper focus than the things in the background. Are you going to work on this one any further? If so, how confident are you with fabric/folds? It might be great practice to push those shirts/fabrics a bit further.
Thanks for the advice on that portrait I did. I'll push the values a bit more in both directions. How does the anatomy look? Something about the lips doesn't look right...I'll post the Sargent original for something to compare to.

yeah do it, so we can compare. For the anatomy, without the original to compare i cant say much, but the eyes looks too separated.
For this sketch, i'm not going to work on it more, but you are right, the next will have a similar thematic and will be a good opportunity to practice frabrics and the like.

Just a small sketchbook update. Nothing special, just putting in some time. I don't own a scanner, so all pencil stuff is taken with a camera. Sorry that these are sideways, I just don't have the time to edit them in photoshop. They aren't anything special anyways; just some random sketching.

Eddy, here's the original Sargent painting. Ughh, mine is so far off...you're right, the eyes are messed up.

A value sketch from imagination.

Hey Matt, sorry not posting these days, pretty bad cold here.
I like your value studies, keep going man, i´m sure they will pay off.
For the sargent study, i think besides the eyes you did it pretty well, would like to see it retouched and finished, though.
And here is my sketch of today.

I really like this experiement, the blurring of the backgorund characters works really well.
I think the main thing that could improve it for me would be the edges of the front right characters. She blends into the same plane as the second character is on, becuase of the way you sharpened up and the areas there. Separating her would really add some depth

This is really neat Syle, another 5000 of these and you will be on a roll I think the spheres from all angles help immensely when setting up heads too. I've been doing similar things and will post tomorrow. Been at my parents for their birthday for the last 4 days and didn't have internet.

Syles copy : Something I love about the original is how well carved the nose bridge and inner eye socket feels, there is something so beautiful about how much 3d volume can be felt there just from a few values.
I think with studies like this and the copy you made it's more improtant to aquire the essense of the painting and the volume in 3d space, than it is to have a nicely rendered and precise study. Almost like the female heads that are in the conceptart store videos, it's about planes and carving the form out. ( those videos dont seem to be anywhere now, the store link is dead )
