    Nice sketch book so far.
    Like the cube people idea, I don't think I've ever seen that (and I read alot of drawing books), so will have to give it a try too. The Hip area looks really helpful to me.

    The pastel looking colours in that last guitar image are fantastic too.

    So thanks for posting. Look forward to seeing more

    SEVANS: The cube people are largely inspired by an artist named Cambiaso, who is from Italy/Renaissance. His paintings are not so inspiring, but I have learned a ton about mass, perspective, and composition from his drawings.

    If you don't have a copy of "Drawing Lessons From the Great Masters" by Hale, I highly recommend it. There's a great cube-people drawing in there by Cambiaso. It's not so much to look at- I skimmed over it for years until it finally registered how useful it would be.

    Jens: Thanks for stopping back in. I'll post an explanation of the color stuff in a couple days when I have time to type it up (or make a video tutorial, which would be better).

    Still looking for some time to type up the thing about Lab color in Photoshop.

    In the meantime, here's what I did at figure drawing tonight. Very wiggly model (especially for a reclining pose), but I think I managed to pull it out OK at the end.

    My old teacher lent me a book on Henry Moore which has lots of his drawings. Turned out some of them were helpful for this drawing- he often uses a very heavy handed cross-contour which was useful to establish the general proportions and mass of the wiggly model.

    He's an interesting artist- I think he was not academically trained, so his "skill" is not that great. His drawings are not very impressive to look at. But he has a really solid sense of form that comes through in his drawings. I quite like some of his sculptures.

    Anyway, graphite, 2.5 hours.

    Great sketches in here. I'm particularly fond of this portrait:
    http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1176303592

    just needs some darker values in there, but it has a great look about it. Would love to see more finished pieces.

    Hello dose,

    Before you start an oil sketch you should cover the canvas with a wash of mineral spirits/turp and a loaded brush of earth tone (like raw umber + a little viridian). The surface should be ready after five minutes. For the painting itself, I would definitely use more than twice as much paint as you're using now, working from (relatively) thin shadows to thick, opaque lights.

    Hi Darkwolf

    Thanks for your input. I understand the method you're talking about and employ it often, but I'm going for something different in the past few studies (and most of my paintings over the past few years).

    The method you're talking about unifies the colors for the sake of making it easier to control values. It's useful for quick studies that are primarily value-focused. However, in the process it also dulls the colors.

    The white canvas underneath the paint makes for more vibrant colors- as long as the paint remains at least partially transparent it will be brighter than with a muting earth tone underneath. It's basically an impressionist technique, designed to focus on comparing patches of color- sometimes at the expense of value.

    You can't have both, but either method is valid in its own right.

    some sick stuff up in here. Great modeling on a couple of those faces. Love the piece you used for your avi, great colors; really gives it a sense of life, and well music.

    Peace out!
