That 'cast room' looks cold, Great atmosphere in such a simple painting.
Hey tehmeh, Brozil here, post the Link one!
Dude, you are a constant, CONSTANT source of inspiration for me. Keep feeding and I'll keep eating. Great work!
A-OK kiddo, how is laras new place? went to their old school, by the looks of things this is far bigger. Are you starting there?
more filler while i work on enviro pieces, aka procrastinating painting by painting
Ludic: Thanks man! It's an illusion of having very few strokes, which takes very many strokes to get
tronrobot: Thank you Yeah it is the ep121, wonderful machine.
Adam: Thanks man haha, I have been linking your stuff around!
Fernteixera: Thank man
Immortal Cintiq: Just trying to see how light and shadows work on the most basic forms we use when painting everything. Lights were a cool dalight bulb up close, another direct light with a daylight filter over regular warm light so a sort of mid-temperature, and a very warm ambient bounced off some red. figured I should try and concentrate on temperature as well as value study.
Aryeh: Thanks man, you are totally right, I'm trying to do totally refless work from now, at least until the last stages of refining, and more stuff with a story
zhao7931de9: wrong thread? lol
strange purple: thanks!
JailHouseRock2: Thanks dude, you've been improving too! It's an asus ep121, I wrote about it a bit in my blog, very cool piece of kit.
CONtra: Thank you, I try not to but I burn out some times!
kidult: Thanks man!
Bakker: Thanks, you are right. The light on my face was very very bright (powerful standing lamp a metre away burning it) and the tablet glow barely there (considering most of the screen was black), so i just invented it, i didn't want the cool tones to breach the warm-cool gradients going on but you're very right, some rim on the chin to show some depth would've been a good idea.
Zikes: Thanks, the ref was my mirror Though I did take a photo to fix the hands at the end.
Matt Levert: No problem man, thanks!
Ikage: Thanks, yeah he was trying to get me to do them but I put them off for ages, even though shadows shapes were my biggest problem in painting. Challening and worth it. I'm not sure I would bother with a lot of coloured pieces, I got the most out of it for the values alone with the simple grey solids, for colours just digital still lifing any coloured objects seems to work okay
GEB: Thanks man
Marian Rowling: Thanks! Last years is very uncanny to look back at, it really stands out being totally photoreffed, though it was fun to experiment with the charcoal for the first time this year's was much more rewarding Glad you noticed the rough attempt at some kind of composition! I don't think I'll be up there for some time while I work on my portfolio pieces but I will snap a photo if i pass by. The modern version of the bargue drawing course book has little illustrations by graydon parrish showing how to set up your cast box, and the text does well to explain the sight-size approach and such.
Metal Fingers: An honour, thanks man
LicencetoConfuse: Thank you, it was after classes as the sun was setting
andres333: No problem, I will do some day.
flurry: nah i got other priorities for money atm, ie misato's.
hucumkedi: Thanks man
molina: lol, post your own stuff first
Ixius: Thanks man, I'm always happy to hear that, keeps me posting here!
Caleb-Brown: Thanks man, I mentioned it also in my first comment reply here, sometimes we have to go to great efforts to make it look like our work is easy, especially in digital as we can't control the shape of strokes so well (in some ways). that's ot to say i don't do excess strokes and fix them, I still try to be efficient and methodical with every stroke but sometimes fail at that lol
Mane: I don't attend there! I just loiter around and go to their life drawing. I haven't seen their old place, but I'm led to believe this is a big step up. The cast room is about twice as big as that view, and there's another room for life drawing besides that. I would go there to learn some much-needed drawing but I gotta concentrate on original illustrative stuff for now.
TFsean: I just finished 2 years of self-study, started with no direction but it was mostly digital still lifes, basically everything in this thread. It's not any good model of what to study though, if I'd do it again now I'd spend way more time applying stuff with original imagination stuff, and way more pencilwork. Right now i'm going full steam on refless stuff and some pencil/anatomy when i can!
I like the designs on the clothing, plus the lighting!
some quick livestreamed things, need to go over and work them with refs now. will link here for the next livestream
Kidult: Thanks! It was fun painting that kind of lighting
SamC: aye, one day i will get some work done
Aryeh: I think it's a big weakness of mine so I won't be writing any tutorials anytime soon - I do know that people are interested in my process so I'd rather just livestream and talk about it there. For colour though it's mostly a case of knowing the rules of light and colour, and the basics of what looks good and then bending them as much as I can within those limits, though you wouldn't know looking at all these similarly coloured landscapes! As long as you have the values readable, you can push the colours to any limit, something realistic, something harmonic, something new & unexpected or hopefully a subtle combination of all of these.
AvisNocturna: Thank you, I'm happy it reads that way
Mister, this is just simply amazing! I really love the way you paint!

These improvement is insane, good luck dude.
Christ almighty tehmeh, every time I check back in this thread your work amazes me.
Really gives me that inspiration to practice more, and improve.
I'm in absolute awe of your work. One of my favourites is still the forest piece a few pages back. STUNNING
