    Master Study of the Day #4 - 02/07/14

    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 02/07/14 #4

    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. The more you put in, the better it is and the better you will get.

    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.

    @ shiva- yours turned out too blue. Probably because you down-played the orange-browns.

    @gregorg- awesome work with those big blotches; it looks great. A few finishing touches might have been nice.

    @irritator- the stylization is nice, but you lost a lot of color info.

    Mine, 50min.

    I don't know how long I spent on this; I got interrupted several times. Holy crap, the angle of her head was insanely hard. Also, all those weird greeny-purply shadows. Tough one.

    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).

    Kambei, that's beautiful, I love how you captured her face.


    1 hr, I found a different version of the pic with fewer jpg artifacts but a slightly different colour balance.

    Oh my gosh -- that thing in the upper left side of the pot is her left hand! Good find.

    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.

    Big fail. Colors are hard, and this painting just made it so much worse :(

    Seems that I need to catch up but here's my study. It took a while and I messed up in some areas. Great learning experience though.
