    that looks beautiful, so soft and warm.
    now experiment a bit and add contrasts in value and color, and more colors in general. for skin, reds and purples etc. make it look much more lively (I think I said that the second time today )
    keep up

    awesome, oils are really difficult, and you're handling it well so far. nothing but encouragement this time! now...for the grand finale......

    I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.

    one more week without internet connection...

    nevertheless my freetime was small... so this is the result
    and the GRAND FINAL
    (although i and probably you see many things to improve)

    so here we go:


    finally put the brushes away from me; about 8-10hours


    here is a good example how i work and improve my things
    (i think looking at the object you want to draw some longer would skip this steps)

    all good things are three... do you see?

    sketches:





    some silly thing we have to do for school
    not finished and not happy with the current results
    can┤t handle gouache colors (don┤t get them pastos)

    thank you so much RETEP,
    i really needed some motivation...

    Working with oil is as you already "nerv-racking" said (hope the translation makes sence)
    You everytime get to a point where you want to destroy everything because the result is
    then you never know when you should end
    it looks great at a moment then you want to improve just something subtile
    and you forgot to clean your brush...

    nevertheless it is everytime a fantastic experience and step forward

    Some great studies here
    Sometimes try to use line weight or something like that.
    Just in order to have more dynamic works

    what the hell...
    well i doing the painting at the moment,
    (the last one without a solid vanish!!!)

    what i want to ask you is about composition,
    im painting a sitting woman on a wall.
    The thing is because my canvas is just about 60 x 80cm
    and i didn┤t want to paint itzy bitty small,
    i have got problems to get her right foot on the image..
    do you thing it is more welcomed that you can see the whole leg
    or it is just...

    thx

    Holidays!

    ok here is the oil painting i have spoken about.

    I did already some overpaintings on it because i wasn┤t satisfied with the composition and anything.
    Well i am not satisfied currently.
    I work without any references ( a big mistake isn┤t it?)

    give me some advices... what to improve.
    Because you know... if you work on a painting for some days u don┤t know if it is correct what you do at all.... you lose your knowledge of everything...

    ok here we go


    and something i did for x-mas

    hey xaya!!
    long time no post!!
    I really love the 2nd and 3rd on the post before last, and to your last selfportrait (oils) I would just say that the neck looks too thick for a lady's/the shoulders are too wide. gonna start posting myself again soon!!

    !irritation!

    do you think i am female?
    but where┤re my boobies, my wide chest?

    You are not the first and sure not the last who think so but i am a MAN!!!

    Xaya isn┤t a female firstname it is a abstract word for me...
    (with a secret meaning..)

    i must rethink my intend.

    working without prework, such as a good detail finished sketch,
    and studies for the elements, such as the difficult perspective drawing of arm and leg...

    i don┤t want to go on without doing this,
    it isn┤t my attempt to make perfect realism but to do the things more right then wrong...

    so here is a first sketch for the shape...



    does the current one on the canvaz make sence or is the a major mistake...

    thx

    Xaya

    Restart!

    well i can┤t go on with the current painting,
    the perspective, the proportion and the underground is sh**

    i will start new, nevertheless i learned a lot doing this.

    I don┤t how why but i think i draw and paint like a little child these days.
    No inspiration, no concentration.... perhabs i have to take a break.


    see you later

    update?!

    well not really...
    i don┤t know if you went through a similar situation as i did the last two weeks...

    i lost my skills completely..
    couldn┤t draw a anything... just like a little child... a really nightmare!

    well i didn┤t give up .. i drew and drew (have to do a illustration for school)
    so i started making sketches of the figures
    (theme: marionettes/ puppets become alive, magically...)

    ok here is a overview what i have done until now
    just sketches!

    nice workspace, isn┤t it?


    i want a a grade... because i screw up the past works...

    ok...not the best shots but a good view how i work

    ok first step for final work,
    this will probably not the final sheet of paper for the illustration.
    We have to put at least 5 characters in that scene so this format (A3)
    is not big enough, perhabs i widen the format to panorama one...

    horrible quality if shot

    Xaya, if you got the feeling to have lost you skills try to relax a bit. Do something completely different for an hour or so. Apart from that: I can't see that you lost you skill, to me it looks rather like your just a tiny jump from the next level!

    Great jester!

    wow, thanks for comments jester, van and RETEP

    i needed them

    @jester
    maybe its true, its everytime supprising to see progression
    nevertheless there a things which kill the flow...
    especially that t can┤t work no matter how the result looks like
    i have to make lots of sketches (with is not the worst thing)
    but i can┤t just draw without think that i destroy it with the next line...

    well i have to fight.... next update tonight? Hope so!

    one step closer to final composition

    although i have to copy this work on another better paper
    i am quite happy with the current result

    the skull / skeleton on the left is a bit too big and too high
    i want that the skeleton shows with his arm to the window/light
    which i put in the middle right part of the image



    This guy i put on the middle left,
    i will show him at the moment he is destroying his chains.



    finally i put some background figures for atmosphere...
