    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.

    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.
