    Fantastic updates Zou! the faces are expressive and neatly drawn, the landscapes are really good and the oil painting is lovely. I agree that the values on the cliff could be clearer, but I geuss a scan/photo flattens colours alot, does it look like it has more contrast in real life? But really I think you just need to add bits of finishing details, like on the trees and concentrate on bringing out the values and darkening the foreground and adding some more bits of detail to draw the eye into the picture, too much detail on the cliffs could be too distracting.

    Very nicely done though, you have good oil technique

    Latest arts are looking fair. Still a bit blurry in the digital but an improvement over the last few.

    The oil is very good imho, you could add more colours to the treets, and possibly more colours to the landscape as it comes closer to us. Nice work bro, keep well for now. (=

    Your portraits are looking better and better, great stuff! Fun to see you undertake larger painting work too.

    kingkostas:yes i think i got what you meant, i tried to change my colors choices in the next two studies
    Angel Intheuk:thanks for encouragements, you're right about all you said, it passed in my mind. and the real oil is better than the photo (that why traditional work is better to hang up on the wall)
    Kungfoowiz:thanks, i 'll try to do that when correcting but i'm not very comfortable with glazing.
    Hai:thanks mate

    another minor update, two thumbs landscape. i tried to understand more color and edges in this one. they are not very good, but i learnt more about color temperature and edges, the poses are a bit practice to pose from mind.

    Hey bro

    Some decent studies here..

    For the first study, I think the cloud edges would have more variation on the bottoms. At the moment the bottoms are veering too much towards being a shape imho.. A quick pass with a scatter brush could be make some more variation.

    The rocky mountains are looking good.. I'm not sure what to say about it.. maybe that's a good thing. =)

    With your figures, try to emphasise the weight by angling the pelvis and shoulders more. At the moment things are feeling a bit too symmetrical..

    Mmm, last two studies.. I would try paint some of the colours surrounding the tree into it.. as at the moment it feels like the tree is a bit cardboardy. =)

    Shew.. the canyons are looking fantastic.. not really sure if it needs something..

    Hope that helps! Keep well for now bro! =)

    Those landscapes are awesome, sometimes I think sketchier stuff works better because you don't over think them (seems to work that way for me anyway) the top one in #484 and the last one are spot on, almost feels like you're really there

    nice work!

    Hey zou!
    On your last reply- from my limited knowledge, style is something that sort of develops along the way. Although there are always approaches and styles that may speak to you more.

    Those last figures are nice, that's a useful technique for tackling tough 3d poses. You can always fall back on simple lines along the back, and the pelvis and shoulder line too. As a suggestion- I find that constructing a pose like this may sometimes be restraining as well. Sort of a manniquin-effect. You may want to a more organic approach if you feel poses are getting stiff and just experiment.

    Love the environment studies. Those are great exercise. Like Angel Intheuk mentioned- sketches can turn out to be less over-thought. Which can work really well.
    On the commissioned piece (even if i'm too late with this). First; great oils! I think the trees may be too prominent in some areas, sort of pushing the rest of the piece away. Including the hut, which seems to be the focal point (nice use of colour there).
    Those environments are great practice. Kingkostas has some good points there too. I'll only add that blurring the background does not necessarily make it look far away (not that you did, just in general). A mountain ridge in the far distance may still be very sharp and crisp. While contrast, saturation and hue can be different.

    Go go go!

    Hey Zou my bro!! =)

    Yip, it does seem too saturated.. mind you my landscapes are just as guilty..
    Values are quite nice though. I'm not sure whether I really like how you do trees though, for example they always feel a bit cardboardy to me.. like where the base of the tree is, feels like there could be more overlap somehow.

    The oil is looking good, I can see where your brush work training comes from now. =)

    Holland: thanks for your kind words, and good luck in your works
    Anthis: thanks, for pointing some points(good and bad). it is more careless work than real intention !

    i like very much the second one of these last, because you have done the water very good and there are some details there that keep the eye to a resting place while going arround to see the rough ones, thats a pleasure
    The first one seems like it needs that little more detail in some part
    i like the oil work and maybe u can keep playing with it adding more layers of paint because it looks like it lacks some paint amount.
    Keep up the good work!!!

    No problem. I know that one - I often get stuck in careless brushmarks. They're easy to correct in digital, right? I'm sure that's why the oils are such a good practice. Perhaps the last oil could use some more confident, crisp strokes. Especially the left area in front of the palm trees seems somewhat muddy. The plants for example. The right shore seems more 'structured'. Like you knew what you wanted to do there. Just an impression. I hadn't even noticed the saturation.
    Reflection of those trees in the water of your very last piece looks really funny; they look like pine trees even though it's deciduous forest. Must be the reference! Finding good reference can be a challenge. Lots of pretty pictures, but often tinkered with.
    Clouds in your last ones are really nice. Simple and effective. Nice form to them.

    Kungfoowiz: i got a good excuse for not posting: i was meditating on the last post and how much it sucks. i came to the following conclusion: since the beginning of this sb, all my posts were awesomely rocking high, so i'm posting some shitty works to contrast with the rest ...

    kingkostas: thanks for your advices. me too i think i could work more the oil, this way i can practice more and it needs it. but i'm fighting with the client choices who are a bit disappointing.
    Anthis: héhé, you got it ! the ref is sucking awesome. the client provided me some bad prints.

    SageTso: thanks for the encouraging words.

    another shitty post, just to not loose the line. i had hard time this period with many stupid life things. i think i'm getting rid of them slowly

    Great figure works mate.In some of them there is some proportion mistakes in certain parts of the body and their comparison with the rest body.
    I find some strange blacks in the digital enviro, if its from ref can u show the ref used?

    more tiny exercices.
    i'm trying to be more precise at finding the right color temperature (besides of finding the right color of course)

    any help always welcome, richard schmid said that subjects that have cool color produce warm shadows (it depend on light source) sun produce warm light and cool shadows. overcast is the reverse ! but sometimes, it's hard to identify wich one is warmer. i tried to use the color picker, but in the same photo shadows are sometimes warmer than the light and the reverse. i thought of perspective is changing it, but i'm lost...

    and i finally found a good use for the bristle brush on photoshop cs5 (u know , the one that shows you a fancy 3d brush that follow your intuos stylus movement) i put a a scribble here

    nice figures on perspective mate!!!
    Yea thats true about the temperatures.Sometimes they go to grey so its harder to sense the temperature but it also depends on the photo sometimes.
    here something i tried

    Hey bro

    Really miss not being here every day to see your works. Your figures are definitely improving, maybe a bit more work on your faces. Keep pushing yourself with both the figures and faces.

    Colour.. I can't really help you bro, but I think Kostas has you sorted out on that front. My crappy advice would be to study from life for your colours. Keep pushing your values too.

    Keep well for now bro and have an awesome week! =)

    Hiya zou

    You have CS5? (I'm still on CS3, but saving up for Painter) that is a really nice texture using the 3D brush, definitely do more with that.

    As for colour temperature, I learnt that using oils but I'm a bit rusty...I did however find these colour spectrum charts...the last one is interesting, the warm colours are to the right of the curve and cool ones on the left (from what I could work out) hope it helps..it helped me to look them up too
