nice update! try to have some contrast between hard/soft in your edges between light and shadow to push things back/bring form forward, keep it up man...i should do some studies like this too....
D@niel : Thanks mate, I´ll do my best.
paperX : That´s my next step mate Now just plain, hard edges. I do this because I don´t feel comfortable with them, soooooo. soon I hope
Jorge Gecov : Thank you!
small update... meh
Yeah. They´re way cooler than most ppl realize.
That´s one amazing SB you got here. The quick studies rock. The splicing
into a few main colors is the way. Thanks for making me realize.
btw, what´s this alchemy you and gnoll are hooked up on?
A tutor once said to me: "Let your mind go!" and it didn´t come back.

that hyena's wicked man, spot on colours. Big question is, 20 inch imac ..... or 24? Colours on the polar bear look pretty good too, but the feet don't look grounded, he's kinda floating. anyway, nice stuff.

TheGnoll : Thank you. You have no idea how much your support means. Thank you. Hopefully when I show you something different than my studies, you can say, well done and mean it
bbwolf : Thanks mate. It works well for me. I´ve learned tons about simplifying, colors, and hard brushes, so I´ll continue, nomatter what people say.
Alchemy is a great free software.. check it out! www.al.chemy.com I think is the site.
wookiedabo : Haha, it´s a 20 inch. Perfect for me actually. Cheaper too Thanks about the critique, spot on. I think it´s because I didn´t focus enough on the ground.
flamable : Studies mate That, and: Patience is a virtue!
DanielC : Cheers mate!
jedininjaman : Thanks mate. It´s a great way to learn how to pick colors and work with hard brushes.
Some more before I hit the bed. Gonna be an early morning!
hey good stuff great progress, keep on at it,
maybe you wanna try out and experiment more on textured brushes
The only real failure is the failure to try
Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. Great job on all of the enviros and I'm going to have to put my vote in with flamable to see a fully rendered one. If you put the hours in I'm sure it would turn out amazing. I think one of the dangers ofusing high saturation colours on high opacity is that they seem to cause the bits and pieces to float a bit. It all depends on why you're doing them though. For colour choices, its great practice.
I've got some crits on your still life if you'd like them. (If you don't close your eyes, plug your ears and hum lalalala until you're past these next few lines ) You've done a great job on it and I must commend you as I have an absoloutely horrid time transferring real life colours to digital. It takes a lot of time to do a good still life no matter the medium and you've done a good job of it.
All of your fruits have a very different texture (and while I love the texture on your pears) it's causing the image to be a bit disjointed. I like how you've really taken into account reflected light. Your apple seems to have lacked the same attention as the rest. It's lighting seems different (white highlight instead of the very yellow lighting of the rest) rendering isn't quite as far along, and the shape has changed during your painting process so that it look like it's falling over. The centre-most pear also looks as though either the bottom half is missing, or the perspective got warped somewhere. I really like how you've caught the glowy look of grapes when the light goes through them.
You've got a great sketchbook, keep up the good work.
Sorry guys for not updating. Busy busy busy. A lot has happened, though I'm working on lots. Will try and show soon as possible. Also started to use Photoshop, though not seriously yet. Gotta learn it still, and my heart is still sett to Painter for some reason. But my goal is to know both programs equally so PS has some catching up to do
Jofx : Get started! Painter is totally awesome and about the grapes. I can see your point of view, though I would say they are the most accurate compared to the real thing. I feel that the rest kinda was faked. But they do differ a lot from the rest so point taken and noted! Thank you
Kapil : Thanks mate. Really means a lot to me!
Goodness. I have been so busy. But to show I am alive I'll post some studies I did tonight. Trying to get the sky-colors to work with me
More to come I promise. Just no time. Damn schoolwork!
Your focus on color is going to go a very long way in helping you! I'm doing similar things, though not quite as hardcore as only hard brushes.
Are you trying to match each color with the reference closely, or are you changing them and applying some color theory to em? its hard to know when to learn from life and when to make it more 'appealing' however that depends on what you are studying. Keep doing those animals as well, the hyena was especially good.
Your quick studies are great... and they remind me I should do more stuff like this
Jakers - I usually try to hit the right color compared to the reference It´s a fun exercise! I´m sure there will come more animals too.
flamable - thanks mate, I sure will!
Chris Noeth - Thank you, means a lot!
DanielC - Yes master
Something different for once. As I´ve said. I have been sooo busy lately. Hopefully now I will get a little break so I can post lots of studies ++
Though I could also share my personal textures. Shot by none other than me You are free to use them. Click here.
those quick studies rock! one question though, how long does it take you to do these quick studies?
and that Hyena looks good!

MY ANGRY SKETCHBOOKhttp://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...129015&page=13
the ANGRY filipino : ehm lets see. The ones in posts 340 and 343 are perhaps 20-40mins. I spend most of my time getting the colors as accurate as I can. At the same time as I try to start with large brushes then go down and down.
bigfooTrooper : Maybe -glad you liked some of my textures. Hope they come to some use.
A certain something I started... master study
