    Hey elisa

    Great works, really liking those life studies, they seems a lot more comfortable than the ref and non-ref stuff. The oil is astounding in terms of form, like how you handled the lighting. His neck and head seem a little off-centre, but I think it can be easily fixed by addind the muscle that runs from his neck into his shoulder - if your are still up to it. Great piece all in all, shows what can be done with 3 colours.

    post more!!
    ciao

    hey lisan! Love it how you lay down the colors, looks awesome!
    du varierar dig riktigt bra och tränar rätt, målar och ritar både från referens och från huvudet. Skitbra!

    Fortsätt posta!

    Well im glad i stopped at your sketchbook everything is nice and real looking, i think the your first few oil paintings are the best in the sketchbook yet. Not many mistakes to point out, your anatomy is top notch, well the only thing i can say is to post more.

    Really nice sketches and paintings in here. That last painting of the mans back is great!, and your self portrait: your blue eyes are Haunting.
    I'm glad I took a peek in here.

    Cool stuff. Pay attention to the direction you are hatching though - it should follow the form and wrap around it... some of those drawings have great anatomy and shading but because of the way you hatched they look kinda grotesue. I really like the arm and leg studies in post #12. Keep it up.

    rblitz7: Thank´s much! I´m 25, but I´m pretenting to be 20

    gorgnut: hey thank´s a lot! I really like paint with a minimal palette, and I think it´s a good practice because you can focus a lot on making the right values. If you are interested, take a peek on this workshop on Wetcanvas.com: http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=353552. This guy uses only 4 colors, and his stuff are awesome!

    Demented: Hi, good to see you dropping by again thank´s a lot! good point about the neck, I will try to fix it later.

    Tiger: man tackar! hehe, jo jag försöker lite smått med att göra saker utan referens, men oftast blir man lat och halkar man in på göra med ref istället. Men det ska det bli ändring på!

    Ermac: thank´s a lot!

    Poise: hey, thank´s much!

    Fishspawn: thank´s! I think you are right about the hatching, sometimes I draw to quickly and not really thinking about the lines. Thank´s for the tip!

    This is today´s work: a more serious wip-portrait in oil. It´s actually going to be a birthday present for my boyfriends mom, she wanted me to paint portaits of her (now grown-up) kids. This is my boyfriends younger brother, by the way.

    WIP: 4 hours
    1# The underpainting: I toned the canvas with a tin mixture of yellow ochre, red ochre and black (the photo took away a lot of the colors though). The big masses are blocked in with burnt umber.

    Comments and crits are very welcome!

    Hey elisa

    That WIP is looking great. A touch I usually add to portraits is giving the face very difinitive light and dark sides, which makes seems to make the image look more 3d. But this is of course up to you - looking forward to seeing this one done!

    top stuff,
    ciao

    It seems you're doing what you need to do. Keep at it. Your oils are especially good. Try some loose studies to really excite those lines.

    Amazing control over the mediums in these last ones! Really well done, great sense of form. As bhanu said soe minor anatomy problems, but I am not one to talk. The first drawing is spectacular, the more I look at it the more I like it - great colours. What medium did you use for that one? Looks like pastel pencil...

    Stunning sb you have going, keep posting please!
    ciao!

    really nice sketchbook, you got here!! One thing I noticed was that you sure know how to use value, because your paintings are quite a lot better than your drawings. Just tighten up the crosshatching and you will be able to give us some kickass drawings soon, it's just a matter of technique, moreover good crosshatching is almost only a matter of patience. As mentler said once: The only trick in doing good hatching is to do a lot of it. So when you do crosshatching, be patient and controll each and every stroke you do and things will turn out good!

    Hey, beautiful paint in here
    These head studies are great. I like to work on toned paper like this too, it's refreshing after doing a lot of graphite or even paint. When you have time to, try to include a larger range of value. It always helped me to create a value scale on the actual paper I was using from 1-9.
    Keep it up!

    Gloominati: thank´s for stopping by! I think you have some really good advice in what you say, I think you are right about the hatching, I will give it some practicing. Thank´s a lot!

    Ulver: thank´s a lot glad you like them!

    gaijin: thank´s for bringing my sketchbook back from the dead Ah, good advice, I will try it out. Thank´s a lot!


    Hi fellows!
    Been busy lately, didn´t have time to draw much. But today I have practicing painting some quick heads in oils. I tried to focus a lot on creating values more than details. I am also thinking to paint a lot of those quick studies in oil this week, so you will probably see some more updates soon.

    todays three heads: (done with burnt sienna)

    ~5!~

    Those! are amazing! stunning stunning - those 3 faces really show how well you handle values! I'm particularly impressed by how one can see the differnce in skin colour whilst contrast hasn't been let down - stunning work!
    5 stars without thinking twice!

    more!

    Hey elisa,
    Nice studies here you have.
    I love your color studies especially the ones from the begining. And your drawings are also great. The fairy in the forest is my favorite one. And I like the scene drawings simple and copositionally wise. Ah, many interesting pieces in here.
    I'm just starting with wet media, so I can learn a lot from your paints here.
    Keep posting more, please.

    Wow - you really have a way with that burnt sienna, stunning drawing again! The forms are flowing very well and the values have been handled masterfully, very believable figure. The shoulder feel a tad off, but I think that's probably just me being used to seeing and drawing muscular monsters.

    Awesome work, can't wait see more!

    yea, the head is solid. I love the color, too. I agree with d the shoulder seems a bit off as the Teres mustle beneath Deltroid should be connected to the Humorous and usually you might not see a very clear cut shading on the Teres. (I'm looking up illustrations for those names now LOL) Other than that a great piece.
    Waiting for more updates. Cya
