Rock on. Your progress has been awesome. A little more noise/grit to the brushes you are using and it would be even closer on this most recent one. Overall these are great and at this point just more more more more.
Thanks Jason So this next was very frustrating for me I am not happy with the final result
I tried to add some canvas texture for more noise and natural look. Next time I have to choose something with less detail
That is a beautiful study. You went with a little more contrast on the female figure..see lower legs...but for these studies this is pretty on point. Just keep pushing for more accuracy and you will be good to go. This is looking great.
Great work!!! Keep pushing on your sharp edges so that you get the full range of soft to sharp. That is the main thing sticking out to me in that you can be a little bit soft in some areas. Look for that. You will see it. Far too talented to leave your edges...so keep pushing!!!
Pushing a bit closer with the surface textures would take these to the next level for sure. Beautiful job. You can grab the brushes that kekai kotaki or jaime jones or daarken lim put out for free if you need to try some that are premade by other painters. I would highly recommend that as your edges and overall essence of the studies will get a lot closer.
Keep up the great work.
ps..sending out the latest (kiersten is sending it out) on our social media channels. much deserved promotion for your hard work.
I'd really recommend using a texture brush, that's my single complaint about your work which is otherwise excellent. Using the basic brushes gives the painting that synthetic digital feel, whereas texture makes it more natural and pleasing to the eye. What software are you using? You don't have to make the brushes yourself, there's bound to be some good kits out there that you can download for free.
14 is absolutely gorgeous, I don't think you're stuck in place, but rather that it takes much much longer than 3 hours to complete something of that complexity. It might help to zoom in to just a small section and copy that way rather than to do a macro painting the whole way. Don't move on to another section until that small part is complete. If that makes sense. Although how quickly you can apply your paint is quite impressive. It would have taken me much longer to accomplish that.
I lost interest in detailing this one when I realise that all my big shapes are off : c
I feel like not moving forward. Next time I spend more time on checking everything at the beginning. Good thing is that i learn something about composition
