Care - Nice job on that, especially the hand. I also like how the fabric on the right came out, especially with the
added texture. My only advice to you would be to focus on form before adding any surface detail. I am getting
the impression that you are getting caught up in detail before you have all of your structure down. Structure should
always come first.
Sean - First two are, I believe, by an artist named Leonardo Gasser. Last two are by, you guessed it, J.W.
Waterhouse. Would it be okay for me to post a few more images? You got me all excited for paintings and I ended
up looking through my master artist folder getting all inspired and stuff.... *sob*
Awesome, here goes.
Not sure who the artists are of some of these since theyhave been in my random art folder for quite awhile.
Apologies in advance for that.
#1-3: Sargent (1 & 2 are closeups)
#4: Gabriel Morcillo Raya
#5: Ivan Aivazovsky
#6: don't know D:
#7 & #8: Mykola Yaroshenko
thanks for the comments very helpful and spot on. actually i just got the values wrong on the highlight derp*
Definetly will concentrate on the form first from now on before going on to detailing.
SO whats with these master paintings anyway do we like copy them piece for piece, how many hours for each one?
yea! post more realism
Here we go,
Edges studies finished! I am v proud of this studies despite some issues with proportion, and the values i think the edges are pretty good.
Defintely will try and do the biblis too at some point!

excellent critique and right on all points .... it was going so well i got a bit cocky. yea i can see it now, and i think i could see it then but i just ignored it. i will try harder!
i spent three hours on each i try and stick to a regime every day even though i tend to fail to hit 8 hours on the weekends, i nearly always do 2 hours every day. definetly helps
Ok so flipping the canvas every 15mins with biblis no problem lol this is how i learnt to draw *grin
how long do i spend on this? (6hrs?)
EDIT: I gotta be honest, those edges studies were revolutionary! but i hated last last pic its so bleh.
the colour version is nice! those skin tones... DAT ASS
Hey Care, just wanted to say good job on your latest picture! I can definitely see improvement and you are getting
better and better at soft blending. Nice!
Value-wise I think it's pretty much spot on and Sean covered all the edges that need some work. The only crit I can
give is to say that proportionally, your image is quite off from the original. (see attached image) Next time,
I would advise you to be a little more careful as to where you place everything. If it helps, you might want to try
using the grid feature in Photoshop to aid you in getting correct placement.
thanks spot on as well. mite do biblis now though kinda bored of studying....
i think some anatomy stuff is in order
I was gonna post some master paintings till i realised i dont know much classical shit.
what about rothko master study of this lol???
Rothko master study... lol. I shouldn't laugh but I can't help it.
Biblis will be a good one to study though. Knock out anatomy and rendering with one pic.
i try u know im a funny guy.
very nice sketchbook! those were fluid! anyways im off on holiday, so probably no new stuff for a week, when i get back i will crack the biblis
Care - Hope you have a good break.
Sean - That sounds great actually. Will start a bit later 'cause I'm gonna be busy for the next few days. Thanks.
I kind of wanted to do the Vermeer pic though.
Thanks Sean, I still probably have three more weeks of renos to do, but it's coming along. I'll definitely work on setting up a sketchbook (all I have done for a few weeks now is sketchbook work because of the house)
Good luck with the personal work man, It's been awesome having your guidance and all the time you've dedicated to helping further our progress. If you ever decide to start up again let me know and I'll be there. Thanks again Sean, tc.
yea thanks for everything I have learned much from you. good luck with everything and take care. same as above really.
Well I must say, thank you for all the feedback that you gave me during my time here. It is much appreciated.
I wish you the best and hope you achieve your goal both swiftly and painlessly.
Good luck and thanks again!
P.S. I just want to say that the master copy WIP is just fantastic. I mean seriously, you nailed it. Really stunning work.
biblis master study 2 hours in. going alright, cant wait to get the figure smoothened etc.
4 hours to go.
This shouldnt be that dark, something happened when converting to jpg.... neways will keep working.)
