    Sleepy SciSource - Composition 1.1

    So my first post, and first attempt. I see some accuracy mistakes, and all painting is little bit dark in values

    I choose Gerome paining because I like balance, repetition and foreground tiger as a focal point.

    Great start! A little cheat I use that might help you in placing your shapes - start with a very large, brush at pretty low opacity and build your shapes up, using your stylus or a piece of paper to measure your vertical accuracy. If you hold either horizontally in front of the image as you're blocking out the large shapes, it'll help hugely with placement. Welcome on board, looking forward to seeing more!

    Ok great to see where you are at. When you are first getting started it is very important to really focus in on the mapping out of your shapes as accurately as you can possibly get them. If you put a shape in the wrong place and commit you end up having the other shapes off and require fixing, which increases painting time. By taking just a few extra minutes early on to measure out your shapes, to compare your shapes, and be sure they are placed and drawn accurately will make the rest of the painting process, working out your values and edges, much much easier.

    You should flip the images horizontally and vertically so that you see the shapes with fresh eyes. This should be part of the process and if you are already doing that, keep doing it more. The professional artists will often flip images or use a mirror to see with fresh eyes as many as three or four times a minute as they are working when things really get flowing. You can also back away...actually get up and back away...and doing this works for shapes as well as checking values and edges.

    Keep up the good work.
