Ooo, a callops environment! You should have more in your sketch book. Getting the gist of enviros is easy! Just use three values to start, foreground, middle, and background... you can do a lot with that.
At anyrate, hope you're enjoying your holiday, hurry back to London!
I think the texture experiment came out great, nice values too!
cool sketching .....fine.
luismbf obrigado! e sempre bom experimentar sem duvida 99% sai merda mas o 1% sai sempre algo que nunca pensei que fosse capaz de sequer pensar em fazer =)

Ooooooh check you out! looks very cool, makes me want to grab some oils .
Nice portrait! Must see more!!
It would be cool if we had some way to organise an alla prima painting session somehow.
Excelente trabalho. So' precisa um pouco mais definiçao (na minha opiniao). Quanto tempo e' que demorou?
Tambem quero começar a fazer uns retratos mas os modelos andam fugidos
I'm loving what I see here. Just... Keep doing whatever it is you're doing, cause it seems to be working. XD
... Callops... OMG.... You have grown haven't you... shame on me for not looking :| Congrats on yuore 4 stars
*not eyeing jealously towards the 4 stars*
a la bapsi thanks so much =) dont think im working enough though =x
Koto then do so! oils is such a fun medium =D and actually is quite forgiving. btw stop playing xbox and 3rd strike =p xD but seriously update your book matte =p
aefx thanks matte, well i think we could, all we need is space and a model, which anyone of us could do =) we should think seriously about that!
Nuno obrigado! demorou 3 horas, mas devia ter parado apos hora e meia, sol aqui poemse muito rapido, a meio da sessao ja nao via as cores que misturava xD
Mischeviouslittleelf thank you =')
Janos thank you for the kind words =D
Bummer6 thanks, whatever it is that is working im not doing enough of it =p
WhiteC well its the first with full palette! was a special day that teachers allow us to do whatever =p
krossj hey matte! where have you been? dont go missing man! missed u =)
Aberzheim GOD DAAMNNNnn.!! xD lol
Writerof lol thanks, 4 stars? bah i want 5 but my work doesn't reflect that, so i think ill keep working =) but at the end who cares for the stars?
krel thank you. dont think about how far or close you are to other artist there will be ALWAYS someone that you think is better than you, focus on your own progressing =) we artists put so much pressure to yourselfs already why put more?
Back to school, got part-time job in a pub so i have at least less 40hours per week xD but will pay the bills and i can go to school. so i hope that this will keep me even more focus in art than before, to concentrate more since i have less free time.
anyway ill leave another crappy enviro study inspired by Corot, something i notice while doing this is that since ive doing a lot of charcoal and oil stuff, when i change to digital im thinking before i put each stroke, still not enough thinking =p
Very nice work in this thread. I really like the style of your figure drawings and your portraits are especially nice. Really cool stuff, keep up the good work!

Loooooool 3rd strike? what's that.. Really nice update, your enviros are getting better and fast! I need to get me some Oils, I've made a start with acrylics mean while.
Hope to catch you soon!
Read your little description in your last post. I totally get it. Keep fighting and pushing. Hope you keep inspired and keep posting!
a la bapsi lol.. im sooo not!
Sir Cam thanks matte, your kind words really motivates me =')
flurry hey man! thanks, the swamp monster will never see the day light again =p cant wait to see your work as soon as you start the atelier =)
Koto =D bah my enviro might be improving really fast but they still suck =p lol... ive seen your acrylic stuff, is ace! really impressive. i hope to caught you soon too!
Hive_minD thanks a lot buddy! =D
what can i say... life has been quite busy... school and working at a pub at night, when im at work at the pub im really thinking, "i hope i dont end up working here all my life, i gotta draw more, gotta study more so i can live doing art!" pays the bills and definetly keeps me motivated even though has nothing to do with art.
school has been really fun, a lot of people improving at light speed, some people are doing casts so fast, soo precise ! while i still take quite some time... ive been doing oils much more often now in my 2nd term, more problem solving but extremely fun =)
here just one alla prima from last week
I love it!! Great colour choices Are you putting any measurements down before painting, like a pencil drawing or loose under painting?
Very nice oil pieces makes me want to paint, impressive sketchbook.
Koto thanks matte =D yeah, most of the time in the wash it self im putting of measurements.
The Exon thank you so much sir =') you should paint! is simply fun
daveneale (,o.o,) thank you... nice to know that im improving if though i dont notice much =o
i had a day off from job, so i was able to go to the night live drawing =D here's some of the gestures and another guitarist sketch
Lovely oils cal =)
I REALLY like the women figures, you've managed to somehow make straight mechanical lines look organic! Especially the figure 2nd from the right. I love her right arm and torso.

Believe my lies, for I tell the truth about them. Or would you rather me lie about telling the truth?
