Loving those B&W portraits, man. And that last landscape is looking great. Keep up the solid work!
Thanks a lot everyone for coming by and dropping a few lines! Keeps the motivation up =)
Haven't done much today, will have to put in more hours tomorrow to compensate...
Just two nonsens- vehicles for practicing complex forms:
Honestly, ellipses are evil.
Thanks crashpoint and gpozzo. Sometime I'll do a new tutorial, but I'm quite busy studying and painting at the moment. At my modest skill level I'm also running rapidly out of things to teach you guys =)
Great stuff! How long have you been drawing/painting for?
Your latest EOW entry makes me feel all warm & fluffy inside. It almost reminds me of an introspective frame from a futuristic themed Superman comic strip, or maybe Watchmen. The secret route to Oxymandias's private Arctic estate. Excellent stuff.
Thanks AJM! I've been drawing since as long as I can remember. But I've only been studying in a consistent manner for a few hours per day for a month or so. Should have done this years ago, I'd be in a very different place now had I done that...
Thanks Vulgar! And thanks a lot for your work on the EOW stuff as well! It's very much appreciated, I hope you know that =)
Still working on compley forms in perspective. Tackle your weaknesses they said. It will be fun, they said.
Way to go on those perspective drawings, you have inspired me to do some myself
Absolutely beautiful stuff - especially your landscapes, they are wonderful - interesting technique - do you use the lasso tool? I love #94 in particular, lots of skill and love there!
Hyunjea, That's great! It's unbelievable how large the gap between a woriking understanding of perspective and really knowing perspective and being able to apply advanced methods is. I feel like a complete idiot when I watch some of Scott Robertsons instructional videos and have to rewind a couple of times until I understand half of what he teaches. Long way ahead there.
AllyAlbon, thanks a lot! I do use the lasso tool occasionally, especially for hard surfaces (metal, rocks tec.). I found that my digital work was lacking super hard edges (photoshop doesn't do those very well withput masking), that's why I started using masks/selections.
I am grateful that you are posting the progress of your work. Its very interesting to see, especially your Portraits block in phases are helpful
Thanks Pizzabroetchen, no problem at all. I guess you're from Germany as well?
woops, how'd that happen
