    foolangi - composition 1.1

    Here are my first two studies, was a bit daunting to begin with but got a good flow going on the bacchus study

    caravaggios sick bacchus

    chose this piece to as its a character study and wanted to see if i could capture that within the hour limit, don't think i achieved it but a good challenge.

    pollice verso by jean leon gerome

    love the dramatic composition in here, the lines crated by the light that lead your eye towards the lightest values of the female onlookers baying for the blood of the fallen gladiator, and the outreached hand pleading for mercy.

    napolean crossing the alps - delaroche

    love the way the values separate the image, adding diagonal movement to enhance the feeling of climbing upward

    waterhouse - a mermaid

    chose this image as I felt there was a nice contrast between the soft feminine mermaid and the harsh rocky environment, theres also a nice flow to her pose.

    n c wyeth

    love the drama in the composition in this image, the beams give movement to the image and draw your eye to the giant wave behind the boat as well as the shocked expression on the captains face, adding drama and making you wonder what he sees

    frazettas silver warrior

    another of my favourite frazettas works, great pyramid composition in this and as always a bit tricky to capture frazettas brushwork.

    great start to this! you are doing a nice job with your improvements in value and shape over time. keep pushing for more accuracy there.

    Be sure that you are keeping a close eye on your edges. Note where the sharpest sharpest sharps and softest soft edges are and use them as guideposts/landmarks for the rests of the edges in the image. Edges are important to space, form, and focal areas, so getting those in there will help the piece a lot. Once you do, you will see quality improve a lot. Keep up the great work. -jm

    Hi Jason thanks for the feedback, agree with you about the edges, found that quite tricky as i was working really small for the whole hour, went back and cleaned up one of the pieces and gave it another 90mins of work.

    at this point just double check your shapes...like the height of the dark shapes under the polar bears in the front. yours are not as tall, for example.

    looking great so far...keep it up.
