    your compositions are very profession.The first limo is very terseness and the lines are tidiness .But the disadvantage that the figure is too coarse.

    it feels like a huge undertaking to copy a masterwork and i'm still a noob. should i wait til i've gained more skill or should i just dive if head first and if i've jumped in, how should i go about starting one (noob point of view)? it just sounds overwhelming...

    the only advice I have for you....jump in..do it..don't be afraid the master won't be insulted. and if you only learn one thing from it and the rest looks like crap.
    that's ok
    and if the crew around here pull it apart..thats ok tooo
    more art! faster!

They reason that the very qualities that make a painting worth emulating are a result of the method used in painting them. For example, the sharp, detailed, rich quality of a Van Eyck - painted on oak panel, in a series of oil rich layers superiimposed over each other, on a bright ground - cannot be reproduced on coarse canvas, with one layer of opaque paints and turpentine on a medium grey toned ground. A cool halftone created by scumbling flesh tone over an umber shadow is different than the same done in solid paint.

    Of course, one can study the masters with a different goal in mind such as value or color composition, in which case simple broad paint studies can be done
    Discourses on Art by Sir Joshua Reynolds Discourse Two addresses the topic of how one might most beneficially go about copying from the masters.

    Hi, I am new to this thread, but I try to do some copies as well.

    The ones I wanna do:
    Watercolors from Bodo Meier (a german artist - I dont think someone knows him)
    and Drew Struzan (Artworks for Movie Posters and DVD covers, like Star Wars, Indiana Jones and much more.)

    PLEASE: If anyone knows a page where I can find some high res scans of his works, it would help very much. I only get this little pieces. --°
    Does someone own the artbook ? Maybe you could scan one or two for me ?

    Fans Hals copy

    I'm in love with the work of the Dutch masters, they certainly knew their stuff -

    I tried to get the proportions right by using the Grid method - Yay for the grid tool in photoshop and painter ^^ I learned a lot about shading skin - like how it pays to add a bit of a highlight colour when transitioning from light to shadowed areas of skin, to create a greater illusion of translucency. I hope the collar was effective in preventing her from gnawing at her stitches!!

    Here is my attempt. 2 hours in Painter and finished in Photoshop. I learned a lot on this one. The way Sargent carves out his forms using simple brushstrokes is genius. My painting looked like a flat underpainting for the majority of the time it took to paint it. As soon as I started adding the highlights, it suddenly looked dimensional. I want to do some more soon. I saved some of the process stages if anyone wants to see them.

    Here is my copy
