    Master Study of the Day #2 - 02/05/14

    We are doing full color master studies every day on our journey to get better at art. Join us and continue to Level Up!

    Here is today's image for 02/05/14 #2

    Portrait of C. Duran by J.S. Sargent.

    1. Begin the master study from the image above. Studies are to be in full color. Be faithful to the masterwork. Do not use the color picker. Do not trace. This is an exercise that over time will pump up your skills very quickly.
    3. Upload your finished study directly in a reply to today's thread. Every day will have it's own thread with the image of the day.

    Time limit - 1 Hour minimum suggested study time. Spend all the time you like today, it is up to you.

    A new image for the next study will be uploaded daily.


    ***Important: be sure that your study and the masterwork is placed side by side in the images that you upload. It is impossible for Level Up participants to critique your work if you do not do this, or to even know how well you did. Make both the study and the masterwork the same size and put them right next to each other in the same image, prior to uploading it.



    Tips:

    -Focus on capturing and recreating the largest shapes of color first, so that you are working from broad strokes.
    -Do not waste time in the details. Purposely avoid rendering the "fingernails and eyelashes" or insignificant details which distract you from paying attention to the structure of the masterwork. Save the details and tiny brushes for the end.
    -Work small. The studies should be approximately the size of a playing card when you begin.
    -Be very careful to match the exact shape and format of the image you are studying from. If you draw out the shape of the image and it is longer or taller than the original, then you will struggle. This is a fun activity. Don't make it hard for yourself :)
    -Match the colors and shapes, and edges of the shapes, as accurately as you can within the time you have.
    -You may use any media you wish. Regardless of what you choose, remember to try to match your values and shapes the best you can in the time allowed.

    Ready?

    You may begin.

    P.S. If you wish to give crits to each other, you may do so right in the thread. As always on conceptart.org, giving critiques and helping each other is encouraged. If you need help, ask for it in your thread and other participants may lend a hand.

    Not quite an hour but im out of time today. I like how sargeant always makes me confident I can copy his work relatively closely (but it still turn out I cant) must be those big, strong fields...

    as for commenting on other's work, I think joker's jacket is a bit too yellow (ocre), while shiva's is a little too green. youi've both lost a bit of those bold, strong shapes filling up that jacket, turing the arm a bit flabby and such. lol, sure I didnt do better either, but that's my 2 cents.

    (45m?)
    as always, left-handy has copy left.

    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    An hour and fifteen. I promised myself I'd only spend an hour on it, and then when the hour was up I saw all the howlers and spent fifteen minutes in a panic trying to fix them. Meh.

    Has the most awesomely silly hair, this guy. I bet the ladies went for him big time.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    I've been lurking for FOREVER (literally many years), but I thought I'd give this a shot today, since I'm thinking about doing the Level Up workshop. :)

    Boy this is pretty hard. I noticed that the pose is slightly off when I made the side by side comparison. Makes me want to do another one again :)

    Oh cool, I like this activity. It'll be nice to have a go-to for "what should I do a study of today".

    Around an hour.

    @sady/ fincks/ revidiscent- wow! Sooo close!

    I have a question. I noticed pretty late in the game that my coat was too ‘white’. I tried to fix this with adding some darker ocer (sp?) patches, but the result just makes things look messier.
    How do you fix up the color in a direction when you find it is off. And if you do mess up and have it turn muddy, how do you fix that?

    You can either make a multiply layer and use a soft edged brush to wash color over it, or you can simply choose the color accurately and repaint it opaquely.

    Zikkzak" master study of the day #2

    Hey guys i'm new to posting on the forum, i'm trying to get more into 2d art lately and these challenges seem like a great way for me to learn. This is my first color study.. it was pretty tough i spent about 2 hours on it, still see alot of things i could improve on but i would like to start the level up assignments.

    1.5 hours. SOOOO hard :'(

    Trance helped me keep up the tempo and focus though! Yay!

    Picture came out a bit too big. You'll have to scroll 2-3 centimeter to see everything

    Here is my go plus notes.
    Total time - 1hr- then made notes.

    Overall made him a bit 'fat' misplaced some shapes- hanky in pocket and totaly missed the cane thing in his hand!

    Lots of stuff on right hand side have slipped location.

    Colour samples are from original then my copy- too see how close I got colour values. During this i found i was using oversaturated colours to start- knocked them back as i went along reducing saturation.

    Today's.
    I started way way too saturated everywhere, and had to force myself to change everything.
    Some parts of the drawing are off, but that's understandable considering how little has been spent on it
    My face pops out too much, probably a combination of edges (too cut out of bg) and colors. Because skin tones as usual are so hard. My pants are so wierd, they feel like tubes (the dark and light pattern on them).
    Better next time
    Step one color block in. Everything is over saturated/wrong

    I find that flesh tones have a lot of varieties of colors that are very subtle, I need to find a way to move the HSB sliders one click left or right.

    I think I believe things should be larger than they actually are...also mine is a lot darker. I'm going to try and take more care in matching up the larger shapes and base colors perhaps.

    this one is my first master study of the day from me.
    it took me 1 hour 20 minutes.
    far away from the original but that was not my target.
    i am happy with the result and i learn a lot.
