    haha, kazz, i told you i'd give you a reply..

    the woman is nice, but yeah the proportions are way off, the hips should be as broad as the shoulders.. she feels a bit too purple and pink.. could use more greens and yellow ochres in the light areas... there's not enough of the green cloth affecting her skin color and the reflected lights as it should in real life.. i like that you included the pattern in as well..

    the guy with the bird is cool too.. i like the yellow outline for some reason.. you kept the pallette simple and direct.. the blue in back was a nice choice also.. the legs feel kinda stiff, you should show more of how the body underneath affects the overall shape of the pants..

    Thank you loops. I agree with the crits.

    I was pretty pissed at the proportions. I'm too used to the luxury of digital painting where proportions can be adjusted even after a good amount of rendering.

    bird man: I wanted to capture his hands better.. i think i'll get a small round brush for detailing. I know what you mean about the stiff leg but I don't know how I could fix it. Better observation is probably the only way.. or do you have any specific ideas? More hard vs. soft spots maybe?

    Nice work by the way, I totally missed it when I made my last post.
    #1 got some good value range.
    #2 check where the green cup lies in space (you probably know this)
    #3 The figure isn't the center of attention cause shapes around her have greater contrast. I like the slow fall off of that shadow though, really nice.
    #4 Vivid colors! The optical mixing thing is working well.
    #5 I love the silky quality on his shirt, and good rendering with the face. The color comp isn't the most attractive one but I'm guessing it was strictly observational.

    I forgot to post this one.. local colors gone wild!

    kazz: the legs feel like tubes rather than draped figures.. if you showed how the fold of the pants wrap around the back of the knee and how the knee affects the shape of the pants, you'd be alot better off.. the female is nice, just watch out for the shadow under her eye, it feels too dark and dead there.. its liek she has a black eye.. the color temperatures in the face are off as well

    nice paintings, shaoshao.. i like the paint quality.. you can probably get by with less white in the light side of the faces.. the less you can rely on white the better.. the eyes on the 2nd one feel off.. they should be on the same horizontal level.. her shoulders look way too small in proportion to the head..

    Though perhaps mine are a little more... non traditional than most of the other stuff here.

    Also, I really like your stuff shaoshao- there's some wonderful ideas and emotions in there!

    Anyway, keep posting guys!

    two quick digital paintings from life...

    the life painting Thread. the life painting Thread.

    The first is complimentary and the second is analogous. I think my ultramarine has too much red in...
    I mixed up digital versions of my favorite tube colors but some of them seem to be a little off.

    eliza - the one with the big earring is great... simple, elegant and has a great flow.

    eliza- i really like your style, you seem to have a good grasp on composition.. your style really relies on the strength of your line, and drawing especially.. you dont seem to really be into it for the value and 3d structure.. make sure your strokes are crisp as possible
    mermuse - id be careful of the big long stroke that goes down her forearm..im a big believer in less strokes is more, but i think its trying to say too much.. break up the area a little bit more to show the anatomy of the wrist and forearm.. its a little too oversimplified..

    i finally got around to scanning a lot of my oil quick studies.. all from life, times range from 25 mins to 3 hrs.. most fall into 25 or 40 mins..

    Paper, Canvas?

    Hey All,

    The best thread in the history of the internet.

    Let me ask, when you guys are doing your quick paintings, what paper or canvas are you using? I am working in acrylics and want to do more of these, I just want to make sure I am using a decent and cost effective substrate.

    Thanks!
