again very impressive, ash. i have to say that as great as the back is, i really LOVE the way you drew the elbows on all your studies. great work! oh, and that list you talked of in my book would be great. if you don't want to post it, you could pm it to me. but take your time... see you around, cheers
Hey Ash gettin busy with the back studies I see. One thing you might want to watch out is your rendering with the white highlights. You render your highlights a bit too close where youve put down tonal values. Most of the time your highlights should be surrounded bythe midtones in this case the brown paper and not mixed with your darker tones. That's it for now. By thr way give me/us another asignment like the ears I'm kind of puting off anatomy studies at the moment, if it's ok with you. Laters bro.
Ivan:: Thanks man i'm glad you like the back_studies, i'm simply putting in work.
Stine:: Thank you Stine you are a great inspiration for me so thank you!!
Matt Smith:: Thanks for dropping by Matt and thanks for your comments
Nii:: Yeah you are right i planned on the brown being the midtone but i got caught up rendering the backs a bit to much and then
when it was time to add the highlights i ended up with too much contrast. Good eye And yes i will have something coming your way soon
thanks for reminding me.
Heartbeat:: Thanks for stopping by and yes i am enjoying pretty much every aspect of this sight and it motivates me even more so yeah i draw because i love it.
Thanks for stopping in.
Here is what i'm working on right now a master study from John Singer Sargent.
The painting i'm referencing is titiled Fummee d'Ambre Gris. Its about time i get consistent with digital painting what better way to get started with actual bad ass painters.
Here is the painting i'm referencing
Here is my WIP:
I think i'm a little over my head but nonetheless i'm having fun!
I'm gonna try and finish this piece tonight

Good to see you're getting ambitious with your master study looking good so far. Just a suggesion if you're not too far into it to turn back otherwise ignore this, try blocking in more of the colour over a sketch, it could help. Keep working on it glad you having fun with it, bye for now Ash.
HAAAAH! you're working on sargent, too! very, very cool! i started a master study of one of his works yesterday... what a cool coincidence (spelling?!). but i concentrate on the face (i'm such a chicken), because drapery is sooo hard to do.
sargent really IS a bad ass painter, you're right. but you can't aim high enought (hey, i started with rembrandt, how pretentious is THAT?). but you'll learn a ton, even if it won't work out. but i don't think so, looking good to me! but i think nii has a point. i'm still trying to figure out how to achieve that painterly look and it all comes down to not using an extremely low opacity. so i always stay at 30% minimum and start with 60 %, sometimes even higher... it helps keeping the colors sort of "crisp". hmmm, dunno whether that's plausible, but anyway: you're doing great! ooooh, i'm so excited you guys all do master studies now! we should open a "digital museum" after that!
nice back studies from barcsay. i feel youre getting a little too seduced by the detailes though hehe and that you should consider light and shadow on the torso mass as a whole, considering the plan breaks of the rib cage and so on...i feel that works better sometimes, altho i guess youre lmited by the artist youre studying.
you have progressed and improved loads from your 1st page! Good stuff, the anatomy stuff at the top looks excellent, and so does the master copy, i need to do some of those Well keep it up, im liking your work so far
Hey man, wow, been away for 5 days now
