Sweet... page 3!
Naked Ninja - Thanks
palladium - Thank you for stopping by man, your work is looking damn good. Love those studies! Your right about pushing for further refinement in these studies, It's like the more of them I do, the more levels I become aware of. I'll be sure to push these further next time.
p sage - Thanks man, there probably were, but it was hard to spot at the time with how strong and close the light source from the lamp was. I'll try to see even further into the next one.
Naidy - Thanks
dan liimatta - Thank you for the kind words. I really admire your work! Your rendering and use of color are amazing. Thanks for dropping by
krysjez - I agree, I was so confused trying to produce a leg shape without reference! Sweet practice for showing what needs more studies
Mr.Pryminista - Pieter! What's up man
Thank you for taking the time to write that very thoughtful and informative post. That was just what I needed to read when I first saw it. Fired me up to get off the internet and go paint lol Thank you. Your work has been progressing by leaps and bounds man! Congrats on TAD! You seem to be putting in a lot of quality time and dedication these days and thats awesome to watch! Keep it up man! (as if you wouldn't)
In fact, in the spirit of getting out of the comfort zone, I tried oils for the first time in my life the other night! Man I love to paint. I have no idea how to control paint or color haha but man it's so much fun that I just don't want to stop! It's been a while since I discovered something like that about myself. I feel much more strongly drawn to the traditional mediums... go figure.
Here's a picture of the progress so far. (another SG study [Ari] from her set, Delicious Torment) I need to let it dry before messing with it again. I keep muddying up the colors and can't really predict how the paint behaves from lack of experience, but again, it's so incredibly satisfying and fun to do that I can't wait to get to the next one!
The picture is close but not quite the colors and brightness of the actual piece, anyone have tips on camera settings and lighting to get a god shot of a painting? I would be incredibly grateful for some advice on how to photograph a piece.
Thanks again for stopping by! More to come.
