    Shambok - Thanks man! Head bows back at you, I hope to be able to draw as well as you some day.
    Revan - I'll keep it in mind.


    I bumped into the old mammoth hunter drawing and finished it. I'm surprised I haven't forgotten everything about anatomy.

    Shambok - Glad you like it!

    Mischievouslittleelf - With the sword design, I went for the bronze age ones found in Hallstatt but seems like it could as well be Hellenic I guess. I didn't care about making sense historically as much as the composition.

    OmertA - Thanks!


    A bit of progress on this (I guess I'll have to start the torchlight from scratch to make the colors make more sense):

    Watercolor sketches from screen captures of Stargate SG1. On the first one I noticed green color lifts up easier than others when painting another layer on top of it, and viridian hue is the only paint of less than artist grade I'm using out of the four. I take it it's because they've used less pure arabic gum as binder which would make sense. Just thought I'd write this down since I've been trying to weight the perks of using better grade watercolors.

    On the hand I was focusing too much on the creases as opposed to overall colors.

    Shambok - Thanks! I don't like the other one much myself though, I have still tons to learn about watercolors.


    I usually paint either light to dark or in a random order starting from somewhere around the midtones so I thought I'd do some dark to light studies. Seems to work out much better, at least for caves








    In the past couple of weeks I've been using the RGB color sliders in Photoshop instead of the color picker and it feels like a more natural way. LINRAN taught this in his tutorial at http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...38#post2097738 and after messing around with the things he taught, I think it's a definite must read for everyone painting with Photoshop.

    Revan - It's great, nice cutting and mood. I don't think I'll continue participating any time soon though, I should just do more of these studies. I'll let you know if I want to join again some day.

    Flaskpost and Lennon - Thanks!

    The classic Photoshop subject... I think this is my first more or less finished looking painting from life. Critique always appreciated.

    My entry for the EOW (spring arrives after endless winter). I thought salmon go upriver at spring but can't find it written anywhere so I guess I'll change that to something else.

    Great stuff man, those studies are terrific, you really are watching the matrix behind those stuff. Also very good work with the tone. Keep working with the figure. The right arm could be slightly bended and it would look more natural. The pants look a little modern or are they made of metal? The reflexions of the shirt afecting the metal is a nice tach. Perhaps you could have paint still more reflexions, like in the helmet a more defined sun and if it was more of a matte material, you could've pain is rustiness.
    The animal studies in the previous page were incredible.
    Very good stuff keep them comming.

    whaaaaa! those watercolour sketches are sweeeeeeeeeeet!

    watch the folds in the clothing though.. you want try to simplify them with a larger brush so they don't add too much texture causing the eye to focus on them, when they should be focusing on the faces.

    great to see you putting your studies into your concepts too!

    Lennon - Thanks a lot for the useful comment! Using the RGB sliders in the color palette has been forcing me to see some of that "inner matrix". I fixed the arm and reflection, the plaid pattern on the pants is something I've read Celts used but the rendering has room for improvement.

    Revan - Thanks!

    Lennon - Thanks, I'm glad you like those watercolor doodles! ^^ Trying to get better though there's till way to keeping a consistent quality. Good critique about the folds, it seems clear now but I've really been fiddling with them with a too small brush and too many strokes. I paid attention to it on the b&w girl study and looks much better than it would have IMO.

    Hi smuli,
    impressive sketchbook here! I love your watercolor studies, they motivated me to dig out my colors again. Your digital studies are nice as well, but I think you should try to use more various brushes and structure to make them more interesting. Anatomy is improving, but still needs work, so - Keep on practicing! And try out some outdoor live painting.

    Engelhardt - Thanks for the advice! All true... I tried out some outdoor painting one day but didn't get anything worth showing. I thought it was a couple of degrees above zero but the water kept freezing and the colors spread like crazy. I'll definitely try it again some time.

    Jack1995 - Thanks! Those studies have been good line practice with pen and ink.


    I downloaded M@.'s brushes and went through them one by one, looking at the brush settings and trying how they work. Took a couple of hours but I learned heaps. After this, I started my own set from scratch. I painted this labrador with M@.'s brushes though:




    More Bridgman arm studies:




    Copies of Loomis arm diagrams:







    Tried what I had learned:

    Onion oil study done in two days, an hour and a half on each. I used drying linseed oil on this one, acts like linseed oil but dries in half a day, the dark color didn't bother me much either.
