ive been donig a lot of thinking lately about my art, and how i really havent taken the time to really study color and light, so i started looking more at craig mullins, steve huston, sargent, etc. and really trying to understand how they can create a believable image using color and light and not by simply copying what is directly in front of them. so anyway, i took this pic a couple years ago in the park in chinatown and thought i would give it a try. i feel like i need to go back to school.

Fabulous! The blue bar kinda stands out though. Good job!
You never cease to amaze at how much you improve which each painting you complete. Very good!
ok, i muted the blue bar some and posted the new version.
pixeldragoon - fixed it
orion - thanks!
but tell me something about mine!please darken
Most inspiring piece of the day right here. The process gif is great.
He's lying. It's much greater than that .
Seriously tho... thats awsome... got a great style, and ur pose's(? lol) capture life really well. Very inspiring, makes me wanna draw and paint... but im gettin into sculpting so . Keep it up, hope to see more.
ha hah a ha
i am waiting opinions for mine...li lo la...
one of the best pieces ive seen in this site in a long time....no disrespect to other espectacular pieces i┤ve seen, but this one haves something i never seen so far, im really inspired.
awesome subject. doing lighting studies is the next step for you cuz you already have a lot of technical skill now you just gotta push it and bring everything together..
Nice. You really captured the mood and light.
im most definalty in awe of this piece. youve captured authentic, believeable lighting in just a few rough strokes, and its certianly a credit to your skill as an artist no crits from me, looking forward to more very soon!
Cool piece. I love the process animation.
My work: [link]
Wow this is excellent! I have nothing to crit here. I LOVE ho you can't actually see what is the focus of everyones attention.... it engages the viewer perfectly, while some may be comfortable beleiving it's a chess board in there, others may not be so sure....
Great Job. Congrats!
wow! thanks for all the very kind comments. im going to have to do some more since everyone liked this one, heh.
mike c - yeah, i have noticed that when i am doing things from my imagination i begin to rely on the same lighting schemes because that is what i know, and i never push them. hopefully doing things like this it will increase my "goody bag." now the hard part is just to remember and understand how to apply these things to my illustrations.
chingwa - hah, yeah it actually turned out well that you cant exactly see what they are all crowded around. i was beginning to wonder if people were going to say "so where is the chess board?" thanks
i look up to you
its only getting better and better keep up the good work!!!
I am speachless...
Yes, very nice piece! and very nice from you to share the process file...
hope to see more...
Man thats a truly great peice. Nice very nice.
All I know is that you got 5 stars from me *bows*
I don't even want to see the photograph. It would only spoil the impressionist quality of this fabulous work. Looking forward to the next one!
Ok thats it this is my new wall paper if u dont mind ... its signed so hehe.
Your are such an inspiration, your art is really pro and you are still studying and making progress.
I can't wait seeing art from you in two years from now. Never stop learning.
nice stuff, man. keep it up-
un freakin believable....
My heart is palpatating a bit... my palms are a little clammy... Man, if I start going numb in the extremities, you're getting an ER bill.
And delightful in that sense when you crawl out of bed after having sex with a super model and you put on your pants, only to find several hundred-dollar bills wadded into the pocket.
That kind of delightful.
