    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.

    Sketch for the last week's ChOW (Celt). After the linework I noticed the deadline was last monday but it looked good so I went with it.

    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:

    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.
