My name is Tamires and I'm a design student! I noticed lately I've been lacking some technical stuff on my latest works and I decided to start a sketchbook challenge for myself so as to brush up on some basic skills. So, the big issue I'm facing when making a painting is thinking 3D, letting go of the lineart and sketching with color, like getting all the hues and working on values... I have always painted in black&white to establish the values first, then I use the layer modes on PS to color it, but the colors have been like greyish for some time and it's really bugging me... Aaaand I wanna start painting on Painter because of its traditional feel.
So, my rules are:
Deadline: December 31st
Subjects: Heads, Arms, Hands, Torsos, Feet, Legs, Interiors, Exteriors/Landscapes, Texture, Perspective and Machinery.
-I have to paint 50 of each subject.
-I must always use reference.
-I must paint on Painter and use strictly colors, no value sketching for this one.
-I must always block in shapes and use no lineart.
-I must spend no longer than 20 minutes on each painting.
-I must always spend 10 minutes with warm up exercises.
My old stuff comes first, the four last ones are the latest studies. Please, crit! And if you want, I can crit your stuff too let's improve together!
