    Nice colours.
    ....hummm, well, if i were you i wouldn't be unsatisfied. Most of the time frusrtation comes with a too personnal attention to your work. Just do it, even it's not what you were aiming for, other people might get inspired by it. It happened to me, and now i feel more confortable about doing things that aren't really coming from my mind.
    Hope it helps and keep up the pace, your sb's getting better and better =)

    incedible progression timmy, you are rocking it in here! where are you based?
    if you are UK then it would be cool if you could come meet up with us onetime. me and the guys in my sb ring meet up every now and again to draw in pubs and zoos and what not.
    you are a true inspiration mate: super range of ideas and so much style!

    jake ~ im tickled you think my colors are spicy! all right i'll finish it
    daniel ~ mate i really appreciate the words. really nice to hear some perspective. ive just gotta learn that all things come in time. hopefully soon i can get a better grip of this digital monster and not be so frustrated.many thanks
    inkin ~ hey thanks mate!
    cakey ~ im so glad you popped by! i wish i were in the uk, i spent last summer in edinburgh and didnt want to leave...but alas, my home is dreary providence rhode island, us of a perhaps this coming summer, if i can escape away again! either way after my senior year, i am quite certain im going to skip out of the states for good. hopefully i'll end up round your neck of the woods really appreciate your comments!

    here's another old man quickie. i included the piccie just because he was too kewl and needs to be seen here since i didnt quite do him justice. his hands were a wee too akward though so i took some liberties.

    30 mins ~ tea time included (chamomile, mind you!)

    can't bloody wait, hurry! 1, 2, 3!

    Anyway damn you update often

    As for the latest as Jens wrote it's a pretty hard picture, but lovable - and while 30 is short, given the tea anyway, I'd wish it still to feel more like the image at hand. Yet it makes a good study & I think I need to draw it myself

    Danny L ~ hehe, yeah...my schools on vacation and we had a helluva snowstorm, so I figure I'll just keep updating! Glad you keep checkin in mate!
    Jens ~ much appreciated! I know youve got quite a grasp on the photoshop greyscale, having been drooling over your figures for some time. hopefully with practice i can be there sometime. until then its a practice in patience.


    All I can say, is gesturing greyscale in photoshop is harder than i thought
    but i figure if i keep on posting these I'll make myself better so I wont be so embarassed!!! And again, these dudes are just too kewl so i thought i'd attatch the original as well, in case there are any takers.

    I'm glad you did - the images are hot

    & I did a stab at the first earlier, but my inkbrush in photshop makes it crash constantly

    oh well perhaps later

    Anyway this fared better, though of the madman on the photo opposed the tired you drew, I'd pick the mad man, though that said it's one of the better characters I've seen photographed - who the hell wants to be portrayed like that? also the titled chair is a keeper

    spam king

    ha! no bewbies here...just the spam king
    but this is the last one. im finally satisfied with one grayscale gesture. about friggin time too!

    ostrander ~ finish? you do know who you're talking to right!!? haha, well actually i think that might just actually be a good idea. really get more out of it, not just speed studies. and the link is: http://www.civilwarphotos.net or http://www.treasurenet.com/images/

    zarquino ~ thanks mate!

    dan ~ i agree completely. i definetely lose the quality of the photos in the gestures. perhaps i should allow myself more time and actually get a good result!!! thanks again mate!!!

    well, i changed brushes and voila! proof that photoshop can make up for lack of ability. yay! something much better resulted.
    okay. i finally got a decent one so thats enough for today no more spam. and again, the picture was too cool so i included the file.

    duuuude! i love em!
    yours are looking super confident man, you make it look so easy.
    by the by...rhode island you say? im heading to NYC in a few months (is that even close?)
    just to have a look, it'll be a far cry from little 'ol NZ and im really looking forward to it...you like the UK huh? you know they say that NZ is like a mini UK...but without the awesome array of accents
    anyways, your studies are awesome and your inspiring me to do more!
    thanks dude

    Wow man, these last ones are great.
    The oddest thing - there seems to be a slight structural distortion in the faces, but that's what I dig about them.
    Good job on capturing the character and personality of each of them, would love to see more!

    don-key ~ stopped by your sb, your doing great man! trust me its difficult to start up! tricky little devils. if they were merely tone studies it'd be a piece of pie. apple pie. mmm. and little old Rhode Island is just a few hours from NY, so most definetely i wouldnt mind taking a trip when the time comes mate! and oh yeah, what i'd give for the uk or NZ

    brendan ~ glad you find them a bit interesting mate! i dont try for exact replicas, obviously, not enough skill for that, but just what feels right. that way there's at least a little invention going on ~ so I'm more into it! at the same time i wish i COULD catch more of the attitude in the piccies, just because there's something so intense yet exhaustive about their expressions
    and here's another...
    SOOOOOO close to being done, I was tickled to finish it. tickled. not driven. therefore, not done

    oh and ps: WHO has a class with j. foster this monday afternoon?
    (me) thats right. the one good thing about my school

    45 MINUTES ~ Old dood of the day (although its technically been six for two days o_O)

    Damn Timmy, your gaining some momentum here!!! This old badasses are getting better and better, I might jump in the :{ bandwagon if ye don't mind Perhaps starting with a lightly textured gray background could help?
    But, where are the bewbies ????

    Erro Timaloo. I think it's cool to see you doing these old photo studies - one thing I might suggest is adding a low opacity mid gray layer overtop of what you have in some of them where you've really got a lot of white. Then create another layer and start to build up your values again from there. Don't paint exactly what you see in the photo, because many of them are washed out / too hot in the whites. Paint more darkly than what you see, and only use white in those very small areas of greatest highlight.

    I'm sure you know all this, but just a gentle reminder to get the full value scale in there!

    Cheers!

    Yay, boobees!!!
    I'm totally diggin this dude, I love the concept and his meatiness. Mmm, about stopping at step three, I think the only problem with the final one is that purple in his arm, too saturated perhaps? And now you got me all curious with this Huante alcohol rubbing technique, wanna see the outcome of that.
    Cheers!

    thanks guys
    i seriously dont know that it is, but thees something that really just annoys me about my digital stuff: its like the brush marks just are too 'heavy handed?' i had gotten some cool colors in painter throughout this, but i mean comeon!!! you can see how much i compromised in the fact that i threw a friggin tunic over him so you cant see his arms or chest i had detailed. ridiculous. im taking a break to play some music for a while a long while.
    this is probably just me being pissy tonight since it is four oclock, but something has really gotta change that i dont know! ive read every tutorial to pass me by! why!!!!! ho hum. toodles

    You seem to be losing a lot of form and detail when you paint over your pencils. Why don't you keep the pencil image as a multiply layer over the top and just paint on the layer underneath, just to try something different.

    cheers.
