    18. I chose this one becouse I like the story it suggests and I think the designs of the ships are very interesting. I think is quite obvious the balance is very symetric, the rhythms and variety in shapes in the ground, vegetation and sky but specially on the small elements of the desing are totally crazy like so often happens in Berkey's work.

    I think I might be slightly darker on the right so I'll come back to see that later. Now I think I will faint for a little while.

    Wonderful works to be seen here for sure, its really fun to see you're revisited versions as well. Say, about how much time do you spend for a finished look in your works? I liked the Berkey nr 4 study a lot, so many details in those images it seems. Great job!

    Hi Atnasina! Overall it depends of the complexity of the piece subject of study. This last one was at least 24 hours but probably around 27. The Berkey you mention had to be around the same time. The quickest had to be n.8 or n.10 around 7 hours.
    dens asked me a bunch of things and I responded in his thread, maybe you would like to have a look, here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...omposition-1-1

    A couple days ago I was passing by your thread and read the looking at the two pieces at the same time technique, first time I heard that! I have been practicing but I have never trained my peripheral vision before and I'm having a hard time trying to see something out of the center of the two pieces. I'll have to give some time to that. Raúl.Arbeloa - Composition 1.1

    ah I understand, well as said before they do look amazing. I will look into the link you gave me, thanks for the heads up! I could use all the info I get my hands on =) About the peripheral vision, yeah I started doing that in the two last ones I did, and I find it really hard. It's like my eyes only want something to focus and hold onto so I guess that will take some practicing. I do hope you find it useful and good luck with the last two images right!

    Great. You might want to find a way to throw an overlay on that or some sort of canvas surface, just to see if you can capture that surface quality, but for shape, value and edge you have that in place. Great work. Keep it up. It is inspiring to see and the progress is good.

    OK, I'll add surface quality to my studies from now on .

    I'm thinking that might help me a lot with study 17 too.
    In fact I think that is what was driving me nuts dude! how is it that I didn't saw that!

    Our eyes can trick us sometimes, that is for sure. You will get that handled, I believe that fully.

    Agerkvist thanks man, it's just the will to do it and practice, if you have that it will only take you some time to do the same.

    Madaoway thanks, don't know how often but I'll be making more B/W studies for sure.

    deepskysurfer thank you for passing by I really appreciate that.

    I'm sorry for the suspense.
    My first tries applying surface quality so I'll upload 19 and 20 with and without texture, but first 17 and 18 with surface quality applied.
    In this four studies I have used at least three superposed layers to create the textures. These are standard textures of photoshop and I made different adjustments in opacity, brightness, contrast and a couple times on shape too.

    The final surface texture has turned out to be the key factor in getting all the small variations in value around the ship right.
