    Super Traditional Noob Squad

    Ok here it goes.. This is a running diary to record the traditional endeavors of the Noob squad. So far the Squad consists of Yemi and myself.

    This is probably going to be brutal so those of you who can't take super noob painting skills may wish to go else where. But for those of you who wish to
    follow a tear jerking journey of self discovery (:/?), read on.

    Rules:

    1. A traditional sketch a day MINIMUM! You may not leave the squad whilst you are still considered a super noob, or even just a standard noob.

    2. Studies MUST be from either life or a master study. No photo studies!

    3. If a non noob posts in this thread (in which they are welcome) they must leave a painfully honest crit of some kind that must cause tears from at least one member.
    If this doesn't happen then a sea pig will cry instead.

    4. If anyone else wants to join please ask in a post (this won't result in sea pig melancholy). The only thing that is asked is that you are a super noob of the
    traditional medias; and you must be serious and follow rule 1!

    *sighs if you insist tbh my crits arent that good but I'll give it a shot

    yemi
    the nose is messed up take some more time in readjusting and look at reference. ear looks like its been chewed off by a dog that could not be your best work for 30 minutes this looks half ass and done within 4 minutes I can see potential but you are not pushing yourself to that limit redo the whole thing over again

    the skeleton have a lot of issues so just basically looks like nothing but a blob of ink focus more on the details even a middle schooler could do a better job then this also not a wise idea leaving the paper towel over the palette could mess up the watercolor and make a big mess be more organize in both the painting and your organzation of tools I will admit the second attempt have good value but its still novice level try again

    The last one is much better drawing, but consider getting a hold of some vine charcoal and doing some basic still-life drawings. Make clean dark/light separation and then you can add midtones, core shadow, deep dark, reflected light, etc.

    Bomb. Thanks for the support dude; you saved the moon pigs some grief there buddy. The wet paper towel is to keep the paint wet, the paint sits on top and can last a couple days like this. I know I'm still not quite in control of the paint so far. Also i'm not sure how old a middle schooler is (different system. Maybe 8-10?) either way i take its bad haha.

    Yemi - nice drawing dude. Work more on volume (i know I've told you this but it's now on record haha).

    Todays study, tree across the street. Gouache (but used like watercolour).

    Oh god, I would love to join..but I don't think I have enough materials (water color papers)
    As you can guess I'm a SUPER NOOB in traditional art. Hmmm....
    what are the options of materials in this thread, can I use pencils? I'm bad at that too




    I struggle with my art studies and stuff, but I NEVER quit. *cough* just making myself clear

    Alla prima from yesterday's class (dis regard the face) and Yesterday was the first time i ever really painted with oil, i used to use the turpentine like i'm painting with watercolor until i asked my teacher who told me it was to clean your brush and to get A LITTLE moisture going in the paint. and there is my bust.

    i got kinda frustrated so i gave my figure some swank....i guess...

    Hey Dihleez. Yeah sure man you can use pencils. Me and Yemi started this cus we want to learn how to paint. But drawing is the first step. So go ahead and start with pencils if you want but also stock up on some watercolour, acrylic or gouache and some paper (the paper i'm using isn't great and it warps but it's ok for learning). Just follow rule one any you'll be a master painter in no time Welcome aboard.

    Hey Yemi cool going man. Is that the same lighting set up as when you painted the bust? Actually looking at it it doesn't look the same. Just make sure you have a gradation from side to side as well as from top to bottom.

    Hey More Noob painting coming strait at your face! BTW Yemi is unable to post for a good reason; so until hes back it looks like im flying low! (wait that doesn't sound right :s)

    Think i've made some use of the knowledge gained from yesterdays fail-stival. Still sucks, just a bit less. Learning a lot of small things from reading Mullins posts and watching Gurney's snippets.

    Todays Study. Strait up Watercolour. Pretty happy with it for now; think it's the best thing I've painted so far?
    Sorry no process or ref photo taken today. And as always, from life

    Fairly happy with some areas of this, to be honest the drawing could have been better But yeah think i learned a few
    things about controlling edges and just a few things about the media in general. Peace!
