Good stuff man, the one problem i see in your life studys is the contour of the bodies, get a good silhouette(sp?) of the character, women with nice smooth soft curves and men...well you know. other than that, looking real good man. Keep it up.
Well i of course studied and killed some pencils but not posted them...
I did some more oil paintings... withouth ref! (really the last time i do that!)
i not finished it and will probably overpaint some areas...
just a blurry close up from the painting... don┤t want to show u the shit i did with the surrounding
u know that? ME too! did a new try because at my first i saw many proportional mistakes.... i think i keep the one hand sillouette-like
just don┤t know what to do with the background!?
Any advice for achieving a plain black background?
About 2- 3 hours i think!
@Pesmerga: Right, i hosted my earlier pages at lycos/tripod it worked half a year then it was suddenly locked and deleted... because it wasn┤t allowed.
@2100: Absolutely right, i really have to do some (extreme) expressions to add some more live to the drawings.
The drawings are mostly without ref. just the clean ones are with ref.
but u see where i used and where not.
Here are some more drawings, i just drew without knowing what it would be.
Gonna be time to get a scanner, sorry!
Hi, firstly, i'd like to say, V nice work! I like the one in chalk/pastel on brown pastel paper (i think its pastel)
However i do have some crits. You're paintings of faces are really great but some of your sketches seem a little off. The facial features seem slightly out of proportion. apart from that, fantastic work!
Great stuff, The paintings I really like they display a great amount of emotion that smarmy disaffected look. Though in some the body does not seem affected by the emotion the face conveys . I like your gesture studies.
