    sooo trad paintings are coming?

    talking about your painting
    great details

    but in my opinion color scheme doesn't match the scene
    it's just a feeling, my brain keeps on banging
    "sth is wrong with it" maybe it's also about the figure on foreground (it has unnatural propotions)

    sorry for being so inaccurate

    i think you should also focus on pallet of your paintings

    cheers

    Hey man, awesome stuff on that latest WIP, loving how your describing the form with the different planes - looks like a stealth bomber? (from my very limited knowledge). Are you using any videos for this ID stuff? I've found Scott Robertson's Gnomon Workshop vids mega helpful for learning the draw-through process. Keep it up man, can't wait to see how this one progresses and more of your ID stuff.

    Ven S: Thanks a lot!

    Glaudarien: Haha yeah man i agree! I'll start posting more id stuff from my sb!

    Gadbury: Thanks man! I love your work!

    Ztak: thanks haha! Its going a bit slow right now tho' D;

    Lancer_idenoure: Yes! ACCD! I'll go to cali either way Can't stay away much longer!!

    Vella_C_Raptor: Hahha really? Which department are they in? And its a lot about the financial part too D:

    Nim: Thanks buddy!

    Takashmen: I agree with the crit, I think its the mucho-too-warm in the background that is rubbing off a bit. But one of the goals with the painting, was to push in different fields.. such as value and chroma haha. I have noticed that I leave my paintings a bit too dull. So I gotta practice outside of my comfortzones too
    Thanks for the crit man! Really appreciate it!

    dlincoln83: Thanks man!

    Andres333: Much appreciated! Cool site, looking through it as I type this hahah =)

    Glaudarien: thanks man! yeah I have seen those, seen most of his videos I think? D: haven't taken them seriously till now though D:



    WIP numbero 4 for the teen challenge:

    haha thanks man its on its way, i just want to figure out what every part looks like, and how it fits together not only visually. I still haven't done much with the background either, I just have a rough idea of what kind of light there is in the scene. I did some green bounce light etc, and blue reflecting from the sky (turning more cyan'ish because of the green/yellow that is the plane), but it will have to wait just a little longer till everything is definied and worked out!

    Thanks for stopping by mate! Really appreciate the thought

    cool updates lately and glad to hear that you're planning on going to Art Center
    also I'm dying to know how you're planning on affording the tuition.... freelance on the side? loans (are they available to international students)?

    Hope you don't mind Dennis, but I couldn't help but make a little paintover for you. I LOVE this image so much, but couldn't help but think I would make a couple tiny changes...so here is how I would approach it. As always feel free to ignore whatever you disagree with

    The first thing I did was soften the background trees a bit. Right now they were a bit sharp for my taste so I took the smudge tool to it really quick. I also threw in a tiny bit of purple into the trees to help push them back a bit more and add some more colour variation (it is pretty subtle though).

    I then wanted to shift the focus to the cockpit more. The way you had it all parts of the plane were treated fairly equally and I thought it would be better to have a more defined focal point. So I bumped the contrast a little by painting in some darker tones in the shadow (although maybe that wasn't necessary--might just be my monitor). I also put in a stronger reflection on the glass. Then I put a quick unsharpen mask on the cockpit to sharpen up the edges and give it a bit more punch.

    Now that I felt the focus was more on the cockpit, I needed to keep other areas from grabbing too much attention. I took a soft brush on low opacity and put some of the background colours over the parts of the plane I didn't think needed so much attention (especially the wings) to reduce the contrast and make it a bit softer.

    That's about it...other than reducing the darker saturated blue at the top of the sky which I felt was a bit too sudden and awkwardly pressed against the edge of the canvas.

    Hope all that helps--it's a bit of a different image now, but is closer to what I would have done had I painted it. Once again it's a GREAT painting and definitely one of my favourites from you!

    Thanks for the paint-over man I agree with everything but the atmosphere you put around the wings. I have some problem balancing the darks in my images, and I always notice I leave too many values un-used when I'm done. Something I need to work on! With that said, I'll probably add in some darker darks in the areas around the cockpit, and fix the glas. Again thanks for the paintover! And thanks everyone else for your comments! Really appreciate it !
