Hi Pou, inspiring stuff, as always. These last onion paintings look super fresh and exciting. Love the strokes and the color complexity you've managed with them. The bug woman is looking great as well. It cracks me up. The branch she is standing on looks a little "cut and paste", like it doesn't meld successfully with the background. It's looking a little flat. I know you probably want it to pop out in space, but I'm thinking maybe some of the edges are a tad too crisp and the lighting could subtly describe the form better? Not sure how to fix it, exactly. Do you see what I mean?
hey pou onions are not yum, they taste horrible but nice still lifes, reminds their very usefull, gotta do some too.
to me happens the same in my pieces, i cant finish them cauze i dont make long studies either, actually i think its pretty hard, good luck there, if you learn that then you can teach me oh the girl seems like a good skin color studie
Hey Pou! Those onions are really nice! I love onions!
I need to second Buxu in post #310, you could do some of those "Feng Zhu"-ish constructions when it comes to animals. This stuff is really boss!
Your hand-anatomy also needs some work, maybe you could go for a 100-hand-challenge? - just use your left hand for posing and do any kind of poses you can think of. I should do that too
Your sense of value and form is getting better with each post - that's really nice to see! I wonder what would happen if you'd pour ~20 hours into one big-ass painting?
Grumpysaur: Pfffuffff yeah it’s so flat. I see what you mean! I’ll try to improve that thank you
Zou: I’ll do some longer studies, thank you buddy
Buxu: >:C onions are the best. Yeah of course whatever you need, if I can help you with it!
Purb: Thank youuuuu my cheerleader XD
Ecki: Okay yes T___T longer stuff. AHHHHH 20 hrs??? INSANEEEEE. Someday someday bahha, I’ll try a 100 challenge again… I usually cop out at like 50 since my brain doesn’t absorb any new information after that. I’ll try to learn how to do some perspective constructions as well. Thank yuuu ecki
Randis: Thank you I appreciate your kind words
Groooooarrrr schools crazy right now!!! Very busy.
Posting every other day isn’t working out I keep losing the stuff I do.
Guess I need to go back to daily uploads :I
dem onions, ill try a different object
Attempting a new technique with acrylics, monochrome and then you glaze it
imagination sketch, a creature similar to growth process of tadpole, but crablike features
started using a traditional pencil instead of mech pencil towards the end
Hey Pou! Thanks for checking out my sketch book a few days back! Man you got some real sweet stuff here! I like your insect studies especially the prey mantis awesome! The onions are cool too, eh... so are the figure drawings now that I think about it... gee man just great work man! great work!
Hey Pou! I just wanted to stop by and say that I like your updates
Your onions are really awesome. Makes me want to paint some too! How many more onions are you going to paint?
I love the quick poses from the heavy lady from post #319 - the forms and linework are just awesome.
Great studies you've been doing recently, Pou. The onions are full and round; great form and the brushstrokes aren't too tight.
Have you tried using retarder with acrylics? I'm not sure if it'll help your process but it helps keep the paint wet while you work
with it on the canvas/paper.
