    CSMethod - COMPOSITION 1.1

    Hello everyone! My name is Victor, I am new here and very glad to finally take part in this workshop.

    This is my first submission for composition 1.1, I chose Mr. Frazetta's work The black Panther. His work inspires me a lot, the energy, the composition and the depicted scene, I find them all formidable.

    The "S" curve drives the eye slowly towards the action, as well as the position of the heroes is in complete opposition .
    On this study I spent ~4 hrs


    Thanks

    CSMethod - COMPOSITION 1.1 2nd submission

    Hello again, this is my second submission, I picked Wyeth's work and first thing I noticed in this painting is how all the lines are pointing towards the hero but in order to obtain balance and to stop the eye wonder on the botom, the painter used an abrupt horizontal line to delimit the main area and bring balance. I spent on this piece 5hrs

    CSMethod - Composition 1.1 4th submission

    Hello,
    This is my fourth submission, spent under 2hrs on it.

    Thisrst thing i noticed is how Wyeth created this tension in the painting, looks like these man are hunting someone or something, but at the same time the man on the right looks worried behind as if something is catching up with them, the values are really subtle and nice, and we see the principle of repetition,the branches of the tree on the left and the men on the botom

    Thank you

    Hey Victor these are awesome! they're really solid and they look confident. It doesn't seem like there was any meandering or "over-doing" of anything. I think if I had to point out one thing you could work on, it would just be adding a little bit of texture to some of the surfaces. Other than that, I think they're great.

    Really nice work. I would recommend integrating some textured brushes to capture the surface quality a bit as it tends to affect edges and the overall feel of the originals and doing so will see you bump up quality to the next level. These are really solid though so keep them coming!!

    CSMethod - COMPOSITION 1.1 5th submission

    Thank you for your replies, for this study I worked only with a textured brush, and I tried to provide the much needed textured look to my image, I still need to figure out how to achieve that canvas texture I notice on the original. I really like the composition and the contrasting values in this painting.

    Hey everyone,

    this is another Frazetta study, I really enjoy his art, due to a specific dynamic feel he achieves in his paintings

    I really enjoy Wyeth paintings and the way he accents the image with variety and respects a very tight balance

    CSMethod - Composition 1.1

    Decided to start doing more portrets, due to upcoming color assignement, also thought it would be a wise idea to keep it small size, watch for the proportions and values thus less details

    Hi guys, Its another NC Wyeths work I studied,

    First thing i noticed in the composition is the 3 main lines that all drive the eye towards the rider, also the square shapes in the background that vary in size.

    These are getting progressively better with each one. I really like seeing that happen. good work.

    You are getting about 90 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.

    Thanks Jason,

    I do try to keep up with the quality but often find myself being in a hurry and skipping quality control )) my fault though, no one rushes me. Anyway I will try to focus my attention properly for the upcoming exercises and will continue doing this one after hitting 20 studies also.

    Victor

    These are my final 2 posts for this assignment, it's been roughly 3 weeks so that means a study per day. The time spent on these varied from 1hr - my max was 5hrs
    I learned a lot about composition and value and I will keep doing these studies continuously , perhaps soon I will switch to color but for sure I'll keep them below the 1 hour mark.

    A thing I noticed was that after I finish the study i resize the image 50% or so so that it fits the webpage, as a result the original gets a bit grainy and my study becomes
    a bit to smooth in comparison to it, but that's just a technicality.

    Ah, )) 19 is flipped horizontally, didn't want to confuse you guys just forgot to flip it back )
