    As I stated before on MSN... that sci-fi one is brilliant. I love how the light just reacts with everything. You've got so much knowledge in your brain and you know where to put colors where I would never have dreamt to put them.

    Haha, yes, I haven't done outside studies, but I love Loomis' stuff. What is the easiest form of color to take with you around town? Pastels (non-oil kind) or just colored pencils? I've always wanted to like use watercolors, though I thought that they would be too messy in the cafe of Starbucks. Hehe

    Keep it up, those faces look quite fine. And why dont you use a different coffee place instead of Starbucks. Denny's perhaps or Perkins (if you know of that resturant).

    Intro



    To be able to Paint Realistically you have to
    understand planes and how they control the values
    that you see, you must understand that each
    object you are painting has it's own value range
    that allows it to appear white or black, or
    medium value. many people feel values and paint
    until it looks right. This is not a good approach
    and is deceiving to the beginner because You must
    first learn to paint with fact and feeling will
    follow in time.

    I've played guitar for 5 years and when I
    first started I loved to play around and play
    what I felt like, just making up stuff. Honestly,
    it all sounded horrible because I had no
    knowledge of scales and where notes were located
    on the fretbboard, But now with a good foundation
    in scales and notes I can Play with feeling and
    make up stuff as I go. This is how painting
    realistically should be done. "feeling values"
    should be built upon fact as a foundation so your
    mind learns to understand light as a whole.
    Light may seem like just random particles that
    illuminate objects and create shadows magically,
    but there is much more going on.

    Value comes first before anything, Color and
    saturation should be studied only after you
    understand values and their relationships with
    different planes and materials. Light at it's
    core is the arrangement of values in the right
    order, but to truly paint light, color and
    saturation must also be arranged in the right
    order. This is because Light works in conjunction
    with the eye to allow you to see. The eye is a
    machine that has rules that it follows so that we
    may see form and not flat 1 value objects. Train
    your mind to think as a 3d program, and focus on
    the planes ( geometry) of what you are painting.
    Though this may seem complicated and crazy at the
    surface ( a 3d program!) it is actually very
    simple. Most people over complicate things by
    painting far to many values in the shadows. You
    can paint with just one value for light, one for
    highlight, one core shadow, and one for shadow
    with reflected light. That's just 4 values and
    remember that the cast shadow is roughly the same value
    as the core shadow if it falls on the same object.

    as I go through my notes and do studies I hope we
    both can learn as we go and I can improve from
    your thoughts and feedback.

    I should mention all the note images I paint are done from notes and not from life. sometimes little sketches and other times words.

    Here we have a simple object placed in front of a
    window. The table that it is placed on is not
    white but is "glossy" so it picks up the
    reflection of the sky. The reflection goes
    straight down and does not follow the perspective (planes)
    of the surface it is viewed on. See how it is
    "overlayed on the sides of the cups shadow.

    The sky is not white? right. since I was sitting
    inside my eyes were adjusted for indoors and the
    outside sky and lights were higher in value
    because my eyes adjusted to give more values to
    the objects indoors. I know theres a better way
    to explain this but I gotta go to work now. I'l
    update with a graphic explaining indoor and
    outdoor adjustments because I really need to know
    how it works.



    color one and a little different.

    wonderful stuff here. The notes and observations are great as well. I was checking out the pages you linked to from this post
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...postcount=2351

    Seems like you already got the approach down. I'll be sure to keep checking this SB for the great art and the notes!

    Nice, thread, bro. Keep at it. I think your pencils still coul use some work. Up that contrast a bit. Really think about those cast shadows being cast darkest. Reflected light too. Comin' along! Keep it up!!

    ZebzFree : Thanks. Yea my pencils could use a ton of work. I need to use charcoal instead of pencils because charcoal has a larger value and I could work much faster.

    Master 25 Days : Yea that book is really great. Buy it here

    Haha! I think you know to much about vaule! Seem like when you draw with your pencil you try to put every rule in the book about vaule and makes your drawings look very hard? I dont really know how to put it but maybe try to lossen up and sometimes not use every rule you know... Keep up the good work chris///

    I know.... the figures really suck. added as a afterthought combined with no talent for painting people.

    Fantastic speedpaintings. Especially the last one.
    I can see that you like strong light that gives very dark shadows and bright highlights. Maybe try some environment with more distracted light. It doesn't look as much impressive but your range of subjects to paint from imagination will increase .

    Keep it up.
