    Thank you. And Yes!!! Yes!!! You see it. I just got through typing a long post about value in the Blind Contours thread. I spent a long time in Photoshop darkening the trees, because it was apparent in grayscale that I simply had to do that, or else. The figures need to pop forward because they are my clearest, most obvious, example of positive space. How to make them 3D without darkening their values? They needed to have some shadows because the light is diffuse directional light (through trees, late or early in day). I tried to do it by a sort of contrast of complementary colors effect, having the blues of the darkening stand out against the orangish effect created by the reds and yellows.

    Here is an image, so this isn't just a blah, blah, blah post.

    Color studies for Last Man Standing. (Edited to add image. Sorry for delay!)
    Attachment 290096 In case deep_in_food checks in here, you can see even I have trouble differentiating between these specific color scheme names. "Primary tetrad with green" is nonsense. I probably meant Primary triad with green (a form of alternate complement) but just wasn't paying any attention when I wrote that.

    Here is the rest of the POW. Sorry in advance.

    For the people checking back about the Fisherman's Wharf painting, I talked to my brother about all the boxes that were in the way in my living room and I should find that space usable when I return to the house Feb. 16.

    Are you using a tablet with photoshop? If not, I would suggest you keep cracking at the traditional stuff before moving to photoshop. Remember that photoshop is a program never really intended for creating artwork, so it's better that you keep concentrating on your sketchbook and oil/acrylic painting. I mean, the wharf painting is very well done, but this latest stuff in photoshop looks more like it was done in MS paint. That might sound harsh, but its accurate interpretation of what I'm seeing in #337 and #338. Photoshop is only really useful to the artist (or painter) whenever they have a tablet of some kind, and a tablet pen with pressure sensitivity.

    Thanks. I have a 9x12 Intuos 3 so either the Photoshop 4.0 that came with it sucks or I suck at Photoshop. (I'm thinking both).

    Don't worry. I always return to the traditional media for a while so I can regain my confidence after my digital debacles. I'm still deciding which of my two story ideas I will put in these for POW 2.

    I have decided to go with my first idea, which is a variation on the least original storyline of all time. I've also added some nice rigid boxes!

    You must mean Rumi. All I did was the steps I discussed of getting down the preliminary outlines and proportions, then massing, then adding the nuances. In the nuance stage is where you can use the contrasts of light and dark, complementary colors, saturated/unsaturated, line weight, edge quality, etc. to add in all those little details that make a picture come alive.

    You drew the shapes of Rumi's face very much as she actually looks while I kind of turned her into a cartoon character. Each way has its own validity. I was just putting more focus into the whole of the picture and trying to nail the environment as well as the figure. The blues of her pants stand out against the orange red brown of the canyon walls. I probably was just seeing those well as I looked back and forth in my drawing trying to make the values come out right.
