    Red face It is finally finished!!! Huray!

    Hai folks,

    In the Daily Sketch Group I had posted unfinished work of a soldier that was installing some cybernetic-arm weaponry. I recieved some good critics about the concept and was determined to finish the painting.

    Well... that was a few weeks ago and yesterday evening I was able the put the last hand to it. Enjoy!


    It is finally finished!!! Huray!

    Hey, this is a nice solution to an interesting concept. I like the staging and the lighting choices. But I think you can push the color a lot farther. While this coloring does remind me of a lot of comic artists, I still want to see differentiation of color temperatures. Also, I feel that because some areas are so saturated and others are much less so (the table, etc) it could benefit from keying the color. I think that's the phrase.. uh basically you incorporate one color into the entire image to homogenize it, to bring it together if it's fragmenting. Even shadows will have a small amount of this main color. Just something to try.

    Also, I'm not digging the squarish composition too much. You've divided up the space up interestingly but I guess I just like traditional horizontal or vertical formats.
    Good work though, keep pushing it!

    Thanks for the advise. I knew there was something not quite right, but I couldn't put my finger on it. By the way, could you explain that part you wrote about "differentiation of color temperatures". What exactely do you mean by that? More of the same hue? I never had real painting lessons so... Any help would be welcom.

    Thanks man...

    quick answer before i run to work:
    you can give the feeling of depth with just color, it's fun to experiment with this. Warm colors tend to come forwards, and Cool colors tend to recede into the background. So, if you have an object that's red all over, making one side a warmer red and another side a cooler red (more blue for instance) it will seem to turn the form. It's a good way to add more interest within the planes of objects. You should make a color wheel with the six colors (r o y g b v) and two versions of each, a warm and a cool. it can be a good reference tool when setting up color schemes (which can save you lots of time and frustration if you come into a piece with a plan!).

    Also, incorporating the compliment of your light source's color into the shadows will help bring more depth. couple reasons for this but i gotta run

    hah reminds me of the scenes in terminator where the terminator is taking off his flesh and fiddling about with his machinery

    i think the flesh could have done with a bit more detail, its a bit too smooth for my liking, even moreso considering the guy's age

    p.s. blog
