It's been an incredibly long time since I've picked up a tablet, since I've been focused on printmaking for the last 5 years. I'd like to make a transition back into the digital realm. I figured taking these classes will be a great start to start honing my skills again in digital painting, anatomy etc.
Thanks so much for looking! Here's my first post for Comp. 1.
As the assignment says, I focused on just laying down shapes super quickly, and focused on the composition, not the detail. I tried to focus on the placement of the shapes, and how the shapes came together to make the image. I noticed as I was working on this quickly, how much Rembrandt used the design principle Economy, to make the image what it is. He creates nice movement in the piece, and a nice emphasis on the front figure by creating a silhouette with value, instead of using lots of detail. I tried squinting my eyes as much as possible to see the overall shapes and values, and lose what detail is in it. There are definitely some improvements to make. Thanks for looking, I'll post more soon!
