    Mecha Hate Chimp's Dump of Love - 2008 Year End Review ***(updates on last page)***

    Hi gang,

    It's been a busy and exciting year for me. I've been more productive as an artist than I think I've ever been and I believe a lot of it has to do with the constant inspiration and motivation from close friends and the online communities. I've decided to post a recap of work I've created or posted on my website during last the year. Thanks to everyone and anyone who has supported me or has graciously taken the time to respond to my work. Here's to another exciting year! + = !!! - J

    Innocent X Master Study Video Tutorial

    Ok, one last one...this is a video tutorial I put together to show my workflow in Photoshop creating a detail study of "Innocent X" by Diego Rodriguez de Silva Velįzquez. It was done for Open Figure Drawing Workshop 018. The image took roughly two hours to make and has been condensed into this 12 minute video.

    Hello, Mecha, hello Hate, hello Chimp. Nice work from all three of you . So many beautiful things in one thread, my eyes are running wild.
    But here, those two pieces went right to my heart and produce some effect like when you're jumping from a bridge into water.
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1165972585 Those fish, really feel grateful to you, while looking at this image.
    Light and motion is so vivid and truthful. I think it is more than searching for effects or looking at photo ref. It looks like memory... and has a sweet feeling of adoration of beautiful scene. Those round eyes of the fish and half transparent elusive bodies and their directed motion like freed arrow, beautiful... I especially like simplicity of your language...

    The next one is this
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1165972492
    Again, felt an admiration and spasm in my throat. wonderful feeling of speed and again apparently very personal feeling of joy present. Mountains of taste.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1165972473 I like tapestry and again laconic language in this one.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1165972458 I would like thins one, but edges left after eraser, well it is too simple decision for me. i wish you go for more truthful illusion and blend it a bit in the air...

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1165972950 Legs are too short and thin comparing to torso and her head... IMO

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1165973321 Those soft shadows are lovely, Really can lose my head looking at them. can't even say what medium it is. I think watercolor? with digital lines? My, my. where we will be in few years with imitation of traditional like this... Wow.
    Legs are slightly too thin and too short though again, but beauty of values is irresistible.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1165973979 Good image except the proportions, from waist down legs are too short...

    All images from this post have those errors in my opinion. I think, the distance measurements and comparison of negative space should be done more carefully.
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1165974079 The boy looks great, I think he is quite proportional, but values make his legs look huge comparing to the rest.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1165974090 From torso up the body looks too big comparing to legs.

    The main repeating mistake the legs or sometimes hands and arms look disproportionally big, in my opinion.
    But you did make my heart happy with some of your paintings, thank you.

    Hi sve,

    Holyhell! Thank you for taking the time to write! Glad you liked some of my work and sorry if my legs look unproportioned... I blame all short legged people for my shortcomings!
