    Sequential76 - Composition 1.1

    Sequential76 - Composition 1.1
    1. Bernardo Strozzi - St. Roch
    Emphasis is placed first on the head using bright saturated light, variety of objects and economy of lost edges which recede into shadows draw the eye through the image in a J.

    Sequential76 - Composition 1.1
    2. Rembrandy - Self Portrait
    A strong use of economy through lost and found edges, depicted by the right shoulder. I like his delicate use of light and shadow to create a warmth and life in his work. A medium value range overall.

    3.Abbott Handerson Thayer - Winged Figure
    Variety of texture such as her wings skin and ruffly dress along an S shape composition creates a sense of rhythm tied together through criss-crossing overlap.

    4.

    5. All the limbs of the figures align themselves closely to the rule of thirds on a vortex pattern. The bright female on the right catches the eye and leads through the swirl.

    Nice study! I would say watch out for your shapes, the dogs head in particular is much bigger in your drawing. Awesome stuff! =]

    6. The use of ellipse shapes and structural pointing draw the eye toward the cathedral.

    7. The Z shape in this composition zig-zags the eye down the Mountain to its reflection in the fore ground.

    8. A big Z shape cuts a swath through the composition. The split in the rock divides the painting and it's crossed at the top with dynamic contrast of light.

    9. The Triangle grid makes the subject immovable and stoic.

    10. The medium value range pops the white vest of the figure of this still scene. Japanese print style high placed figure, the lines of the background also help to bring interest to the head. It's a flat profile view which of the head is normally avoided.

    12. The contrasting verticals and horizontals layer with a variety of patterns create crisscrossing rhythm which frames and pulls interest to the Figures using one point perspective.

    13. The subject pops out of the dark valued back ground. A still triangle with subtle overlaps such as the foliage in the foreground and the elbow over the branches. The swishy perspective of water and lily pads help to add to the dimension.

    What can I say? these are very good. I think you're getting the rough shapes and values quite right. you might push for more details in further studies if you want, if you're not on a tight schedule. Congrats on this great study work

    14. This minimalist high key value background painting attracts the eye to the figure by the contrast of black hair and medium value range skin.

    Thanks Lenia, I was going for for detail when I first started 1.1 but then realized how off my shapes were. Since the first study I've started placing both the original and copy on the same canvass. I was constantly looking up to a separate screen, now I keep my head still. Like you say I hope to implement more details in by the end.

    If you're using photoshop, you could use the liquify tool to correct errors in shape or size up to a point, so you won't lose too much time reworking a certain area. Keeping the study alongside the original is also a must. And you could also mirror the image from time to time, refreshing your perspective - it makes it easier to spot inconsistencies .

    I saw a tutorial yesterday where an artist might have used the liquify tool, I thought it was smudge. I need to be more active flipping the image.

    15. The triangle in perspective gives this scene a calm demeanor. The fish lend variety and rhythm to strengthen continuity along an S shape that fades into perspective.

    16. Most prominent is the light value figure against a near black background creating a striking contrast to draw the eye.

    I flipped the image to check proportions and used Liquify to make some adjustments. Liquify is very effective.

    17. This time a medium value background that strongly pronounces the black silhouette of the figure. There is a thin white stroke or halo the artist applied to push the silhouette form even further.

    18. A clever aspect of this painting is the way aerial-atmospheric perspective is applied. The cave formations serve as a series of frames.

    19. I find the illusion of perspective to be quite effective in this scene. Three quarter angle slightly above the horizon to see what's on the table and plenty of overlapping lines to bolster depth with great push forward. Excellent characterization of his figures. This guy is okay in my book.

    20. Most prominent in this composition is the rhythm and variation of the fruit as it seems slide into recline as a whole somewhat like a figure.

    I really love your last three studies. Your use of texture brushes on this last one is also very good. The proportions on the objects are almost spot on. The bottles and chair on the Makovski piece are beautifully rendered. You have made great progress, congrats

    Thanks Lenia I appreciate your follow up and tips. Thanks V3t too. I've gained some great info and found a workable way to do these studies that will pass on to further assignments. I've critiqued a couple other members work but I intend to find time and go through a bunch. I don't write my observations much and I'd like to gain more opinions to make articulate decisions in my work in the coming months.

    Apparently the small gathering of texture bushes have been in circulation for several years now and utilized most effectively on games like Last Of Us. I figure they'll be nice basic textures to get used to before I start making some. I'm sure others in the biz will easily recolonize them.

    The liquify tool is becoming a favorite, I've started laying down a texture and then swishing them around in Liquify to distort them in helpful expressive ways. Like the expand tool on some of the fruit in the last study can wrap texture around form.

    The improvement here is wonderful, with your shapes improving image by image. I love the last one a lot. Most of them are close in value too, with the last seven even better. Well done - moving to completed.
