    Pipermaru - Composition 1.1

    Hi, First time poster here and a long time fan of the forum. Finally decided to join this great adventure to levelup as an artist. I work full-time as a 3D artist in game company and always wanted to do painting,illustration or concept. I am a father of a 3 years old boy and at the moment I'm also learning human anatomy in Zbrush (work related). So my progress will be slow and joining this levelup will always be my motivation to keep me to do painting. Thank you for doing this !

    1.NC Wyeth-Captain Nemo. First time doing this great masters study. I choose this painting because I really like how Wyeth playing with the ideas of balance. Wyeth, put the captain in the middle of the composition, it make him look strong and powerful but Wyeth paint him as an old man and he looks weak, you can see it from the skinny hand, the skinny face and to add more the fluffy big cushion that he sat on.

    I have fun doing this study and frustration a long the way, frustrated to get the values and shapes correctly.It took me around 5 to 6 hours(on and off) to do this and most of the time trying to fix to get the shapes right. I know that you mention to do the study in 1 hour but when I reached 1 hour time my painting was still very very rough and a lot of the values and shapes are not place correctly. So I got questions, Should I continue doing this ? or try to strict myself to do 1 hour painting? for this assignments which one will benefits me more ?

    Hi Pipermaru, Welcome here, really nice 1st study. Your shapes look good. Only thing I have noticed is, his sleeves near the hands are very bright in the original, especially on his right . Yours might need a little bit of adjustment. You are missing some texture in your copy too, but this is your first one so its best just to get familiar with photoshop workflow first and later get into textures. Otherwise really nice work !

    I too spend a lot of time on these, on average 7 hours a study. I believe that your speed will improve but the question is when to stop. I think you are always learning regardless, sometimes -I believe- its good to do a longer one to say invest time into eg learning how to paint the hair, or certain texture, or se how far can you go with precision... I learnt from these longer ones a lot. But at the same time, I don't want to spend half a year on these so i'm choosing balance of longer studies 10+ hours and shorter ones 4 hours, one hour is never enough for me personally, I found it takes me at least 4 hours to be sort of happy with it. But this is just me.

    Zbrush anatomy sounds great ! Is ZBrush difficult to learn? I actually don't even need to learn it I would like to get model of skull in ZBrush and use it as reference. Being able to rotate it would be a great tool for studies.

    Anyway I'll be looking forward to see more from you man ;-)

    Hi Faun, Thank you for the crits. About the sleeves being to dark ,I completely agree with you ! after you mentioned it I can see it that the sleeves and the hair need to be more brighter, they really pop out in the original.
    I am glad to know that I'm not the only person that spend more than 1 hour on these study. I thought I was being really slow (that's when another frustration kick-in) even I spend for 5-6 hours and it's still not enough! but like you said, that we don't want to spend on it for half a year right? and you just need to know when to stop. I think that's the key. Thanks!

    Zbrush it's just another tool, it's not that hard to learn the software but I can says that you need time to understand how things works in Zbrush. If you have Zbrush, I can sent the file project for you to look at it. If you don't, I can always do a screenshot for you It might not be 100% accurate but I think it's good enough to use it as reference.

    I really wish I could do these assignments everyday but that's not real for me with all the full-time job,a family man and another study in between(which progressing slowly but hey! better to progress slow than stay still right?) and I'm pretty sure a lot of artists have the same situation like me. I have to find and make time to do these studies and that's when the questions comes in. Let's says that I can only do my assignments during weekends (either sat or sun,lucky if I can do both) and these assignments need 20 studies that means I can finish these comp 1.1 subjects in 20 weeks :o 5 months for 1 subject? would that be OK? or is it too long for 1 subject? or is it better to do it quickly and then I can move on to other subjects? any advice on these? maybe Jason also can give me some suggestions what to do? Many Thanks.

    Hello! And I am really shocked to hear that you are a 3d artist, your first study is wonderful and would of assumed you are a painter

    About your first study, I think your values are reallly close! It seems to me the beard/facial area isn't popping out as much, and as the other pointed some lighter values needed.

    I suffer from properly planning out things, but now that I am on my fourth study, after I block in all the shades, before I start working details I take a moment to really compare the two side by side - squinting to try and blur things a bit. Do the areas that popout or are the lightest the same on my copy? Is the darkest area of the original the same as mine? I try and get this as close as possible before continuing. I keep noticing Jason pointing out the importance of getting the values right off the bat. I also noticed that if you find yourself color picking from all over the painting, you probably could of done tighter values! to further make it harder, I only use a solid hard brush to block in, this way it forces you to do more value shades to blend things together. If you get this stage down, its makes it sooo smooth while actual drawing that you'll find things moving faster...

    Which brings me to the time limit!

    I noticed mostly everyone spends more than an hour on their composition pieces - and the results are amazing! Really complete and beautiful.

    For me personally, I chose to follow the instructions given which were - minimum of 30 minutes, maximum of 1 hour.

    So far, all my studies have been 1 hour. I'd like to aim to keep all 20 of my studies at 1 hour, this way I can compare everything under the same time constraint. I found that I was getting faster, too. By my third study, I felt I had extra time to do details.

    So really I think it's a matter of preference. While I'm a perfectionist and would love to spend more time on the works, I want to keep it at 1 hour so I can fully see my improvements. And also force myself to get faster, and work in repetition.

    I also don't have that much free time - 20 assignments seems long if you do only 1 a week, but if you limit yourself to 1 hour I think it's more doable! So today I did two assignments, that was only 2 hours of my time.

    I may even try to do a 30 minute one, just for the heck of it, to see what I can accomplish in shorter amount of time. Maybe if I keep doing 1 hour and it gets easier, I can try 30.

    I think after I finish 20 assignments, maybe I'll go back and work more on my studies.

    Anyways, looking forward to your other submissions! And great job.

    Just a quick post before go to bed for the second study I choose to do an environment painting by Thomas Moran the reason are because of the variety and the rhythm on this painting. It may look subtle but definitely there are a lot of rhythm on it, Like the rocks on the mountain, the trees,the bushes on the shadows,the people and the water.

    I do this study for about 5 hours a little bit faster than the first one and I still couldn't get the first hour to be where I wanted and end up spend more time to get the subtleness on the values. I have fun doing this environment painting. cheers.

    BTW Jpeg format make my dark grey blend in with the black. The psd file should be more brighter on the dark area. Does anyone having the same problem?

    Thanks

    Hello Sodmansa, Thank you for your crits for my values and advice on time management I like the ideas where you always stick to 1 hour time limit and later on you can see your progress and improvements. Next time, when I do my studies I will keep that 1 hour time limit in mind and see which stage I am.

    For the third study, I choose a contemporary artist, Jon Foster. I really like how Jon composed his painting, there are a lot of movements and fluidity in his works which I hope someday I will be able to do so. When I did my lines I already knew that, this painting it will be a good one. I think this painting can be consider a simple composition done by Jon. There are many paintings that he did are much more complex than this one.I had fun doing this study and I might do another study of his more complex painting in the future when I get better.

    Three things that I really like about this painting, first is The Rhythm, There are so much ups and downs on this image especially the pipes in the foreground. Second is the Continuity lines that have repetition of circular invisible lines, like the structures of the blimp in the background and the circular lines that connect from pipe to pipe in the foreground and the bend pipe as well. Third is the Emphasis on the values, I like how Jon separated the main foreground and the background by just playing with the lighting contrast, you can really feels the distance between the character and the blimp behind him.

    hey pipermaru, these are awesome. i especially like your Jon Foster one. I'm new to LevelUp as well, and doing these are a lot of fun... I noticed the psd file being different than the original project every time I exported too. So now I just take a screen shot of the picture somewhat zoomed in and that seems to work really well. Although I'm not sure what you would actually do if you needed it in the exported psd file... Hope that helps. Keep Painting!

    Your value usage is excellent. I think a bit more of a textured brush would help bring these images a little closer to the originals. Something I shared earlier is appropriate here:

    You are getting about 95 percent there with the three most important things...shapes, values and edges. are you flipping your images horizontally and vertically every minute or so to check accuracy?

    Make a pass at the end where you double check the following, in this order.

    a. shapes.
    b. values
    c. edges

    At this point all I think that is needed is double checking things at the end in a quality control pass...so to speak.

    Keep up the great work.

    I would like to see a bit more compositional analysis as well, as that is a major focus for this.

    Welcome and thanks for sharing...these are excellent.

    Thanks Jason for replying ! Yes I agree, I need to learn more how to use textured brush. I tried to used it before but somehow is either screw up my shape or my value not really sure how to use it. Any suggestion how to use it properly ?

    Yes, I flipped my images horizontally and vertically quite often to check on shapes and values. I also used a very loose grid to help me to make the first placement and to speed up the process.

    Thanks again JM for doing this

    Cheers.

    Good to see you back man, really nice studies.Your values are good only thing I see is no 6 could do with a lighter tone in the background behind her same with number 7 where the cottage is brighter in the original - but thats just a minor differences. I love your last study man, really nice texture in there too. good stuff :-)

    This looks great. A bit more texture would be a big help, which you can get from dropping in a rust texture or metal texture from a photo on an overlay layer...or you can use the texture brushes in pshop to experiment just a bit more too. These artists are taking a lot of time to prepare canvas to get a certain texture to capture the edge range that is there. Keep up the great work.

    Pipermaru - Composition 1.1 (cont from open thread)

    Hi all, I'm reposting my recent studies from the open thread and hopefully I can get more feedback in here..
    and here are my previous studies from the open thread : Comp 1.1(to previous eight)

    I manage to come back again after a long hiatus, It's been way too long. Been busy with work and life and on top of that my hard disk just decided to died and all my homework for this assignment are gone !
    Anyway, after I browse other people assignment I realize that I caught on details too much, which I shouldn't do that for these short study. For the next 10 of my studies I will try to learn to be faster, simplified the painting, focus more on the composition and values NOT on the details. I need to learn how to let go of the details

    Thanks

    This one is definitely shorter then my previous study but still I spend it more then an hour. I tried different approach for this.Usually, I sketch the painting first to get the placement correct but for this one I go straight blocking the big shapes and getting the right value first, In the end, I feel, I become more confident and faster although I still notice some shapes and values are still not right. I will definitely explore more on this approach and be more careful next time and I really like how the natural lighting on this painting.

    Sargent Study

    Another Sargent Study The first thing that caught me of this painting, was how beautiful Sargent light up the scene.

    Sargent's used lights and shadows to direct the viewer's eye to the main focus. He direct the light coming from bottom right to the women walking at the front, you can see clearly the shadow line and also there is a bright value contrasting in the shadow. When the light hit the woman dress, the light pointed up to the face. Then the viewer's eye will turn to the second focus which is the contrasting back light at the back with the help of the woman turn her head towards the back. From there, the eye will slowly back to the the front because of the value changes from back to front, from light to dark.

    The Rhythm on this painting are the posters on both of the wall, the windows and the placement of the women.

    This painting have tight value changes, I'm having difficulty when I'm painting the background at the back.The back light is very tricky, if you don't get the values correct at the surrounding area first, you won't feel the light comes up. I hope that make sense and I just notice it that I still miss some values at the back when I'm writing this..oh well, I will do better check for the next study.
    I had fun with this study

    Thanks

    I like how Wyeth playing with the Rhythm on this painting, you can see clearly the Rhythm on the smokes, the placement with the pipes and on the folds in the cloth. The Economy of the textures on this painting were used heavily on the smokes and the rest is subtle. This composition is a triangle shape in a box framing. The two robbery makes the triangle where you can see it from how their legs pointing up to create the triangle shape and which the train platform makes the boxy framing. I also like how he can compose this painting where you can see the story in one picture.


    I've been trying to experiment with textures on this one and my previous study. I started to understand how to use texture photo overlaying on the painting but I'm still try to figure it out how to use texture straight from the brush,do you have any suggestion on that?


    Thanks

    This is a direct composition where the balance of the focus weighing in the middle.Shannon's made the rhythm on this painting using the plates and the pattern on it. He emphasis the lady with values dark on light. He made the variety by using the plates on different sizes,values and pattern. The plates are also use for repetition on the circular shape. The Continuity, if you read the painting from left to right you will see the 3 directions coming from the top plate, the middle wall structure and the lower plate. The line from top left plate is coming down and continue to the big middle plate circling to the right and end up on the lower of the face. The line from middle is straight pointing out to the face from both direction. The last one from left bottom plate is coming down then continue to the Lady cloth and going up using value contrast and continue circling to shoulder,head and end up in her face.

    I just found by accident about this Artist, what a great painter and I might do another study from one of his painting again. Very excited

    Thanks

    There are a lot of Rhythm on this painting like, The Brush textures on the background, the placement on the ballerina and the instruments.
    Degas use continuity line and contrast for the emphasis. First emphasis will be the main spotlight of the ballerina on the right.Second emphasis will be the musician on the lower part of the composition where he use value contrast to make the viewers eye goes to the musician and goes back up from the instruments end to the ballerinas on top left and because of the ballerinas head and eyes turn to the main ballerina, the viewers eyes goes back to the first emphasis.He put heavy brush texture on his top composition and subtle texture on the lower composition for the economy of the brush strokes.

    Thanks

    Ilya Repin use the emphasis using the rule of third, he position the main focus which is the face, on top left. Which hit the rule of third in composition. The Rhythm on this painting can be found on the clothing folds, the messy hair and the facial hair. He use the cloth folds to direct the eye to go up and to see the face. He also use the most contrast in the face area and second contrast are would be on the hand. He use the economy of detail in the main focus and the rest, like the hair and the cloth are not so detail.

    Huff..5 more to go !

    Thanks
