    Flashback - Composition 1.1

    I've chosen Repin Since I like his work; moreover, I chosen one of the portrait since I love the focus point being the face.
    I went more the limit of the max 1 hour assignment, it was more like 1:45hr.

    Nice start. Keep a very close eye on your values. Your background is much lighter and it is making the atmosphere seem a little off. Once you get your values right go in and double check your edges.

    keep it up!!

    Thanks I see it now

    Testing monitor settings too for some reason the brightness was at full.

    I'm trying to block in the composition while trying to keep the 30 minutes to 1 hour range.

    Working on blocking in and value practice. One problem I have is that I second guess myself a lot.

    you are on the right track. keep a very close eye on all your shapes and placement of those shapes in the next studies you do. we need to work on your shape accuracy. flipping the images horizontally and vertically throughout the process will help. gotta keep fresh eyes. if you are doing that already, do it even more. it will help you seeing things as just abstract shapes instead of seeing something as a face or the like.

    keep up the great work. thanks for showing your process too...you are handling that well...just need to focus on getting those shapes more accurate.

    keep it up

    hi flash! great to see you here! I dont think there's such a thing as second guessing yourself too much... draw once, measure twice and all that. I think you could use a simple grid for the beginning stages too. you know, just a mid-line and half-way line. cross. and keep an eye on your -what's he word...- rest-values. the shapes outside your figure; the holes as so to speak. getting them right is usually easier then getting the actual face and such.

    I believe the term you're looking for is negative shapes? And it's true - paying attention to them is very important. It's funny how everybody starts off trying to stick to the recommended timeframe and then a few thumbnails later they're taking a few hours on each one. I'm at 4 hours now on my latest and no end in sight yet - I hope to finish it by 6 hours. And hopefully at some point I'll be able to find an approach to make me able to get faster at it and still make it look good.

    Yeah, the first ones you try to do them in an hour, but then you've take your time.
    First pass in painting
    Gotta check and fix the left side. 30 min.
    By the way I'm using Krita since my Painter trail ended a long time ago.
    First pass:

    I've scrapped the old one for this one since the old one was way off.
    I have to check the values.
    Once again the first pass

    30 min??? on the Krita digital painting program.
