The sculpture head looks good, but I feel like it's missing some of the darker shadows, particularly around the nose, ear, and cheek. Getting those in there would, I think, make it feel a lot more realistic in terms of lighting. Also, really nice job with the non-still life painting. I'm looking forward to checking back in on this sketchbook often. :)

Hey thanks! Never played Shadow, but the design of the Colossus look amazing! I should have done the circular glowy eyes! Hard to believe it's been 2 years, it seems like i just discovered Sycra!

Thank you! haha. I've been working at it about 4 years. I am a sophomore in college, now. I've been drawing my whole life, but I say 4 years because I never took it seriously, and I honestly couldn't draw a thing until I started studying.

Wow I have not posted art in here in forever. So I started going to this weekly figure drawing session, and this week was my first time drawing a male model! I liked it a lot, and I think I made some pretty good drawings.

40 min, 20 min, and 20 min poses in order.
I have to say I finished that 40 minute one pretty much in 20 minutes, after I get the proportions (i hope) and block in the shadows I'm kind of like like 'what else is there.'

This is my painting for Istebrak's design challenge 'Titan's graveyard' so far. i am really struggling with scale and depth. I really didn't want to do a landscape because I'm awful, but it's loads better than some of my other landscapes.

I saw someone else do this photo study and it made me realize it's been a long time since I did one myself.


I ended up really frustrated with making it look just like the reference and I started to think what the hell is the point?

The idea of a study is to create with the intention of resolving problems in your own work such as composition, light, colour, value etc. and improving in said areas. Unless you're specifically going for likeness the point of a study isn't to photocopy the original photo! Whilst that may amazing, and you may get better at rendering, it's more affective to study in a way that helps your learning in ways which you need it. Anthony Jones explains it better than I do:

Either way, your painting looks amazing as it is and I really like the stray paint strokes!

Thanks! That was a really good video! I think how to study is something I tend to forget each time i start to get comfortable with my abilities.

Digital portrait from life! there is not replacement for the brilliancy of colors in real life.

everything is pretty rough here, and the proportions are a bit off. But I think it has some promise. My focus was matching colors from life anyway and I think that was a good excercise.

It looks nice, good sense of light and the colours are very harmonious

Here's an additional hour of painting this. I refined the forms more, and achieved an imperfect, yet recognizable likeness of myself.

Because it's pretty close proportionately, though a little skewed, and I like the color environment that I created I think I'll stop here. I actually like this painting for the fact that the color blue isn't used whatsoever. Not even close! The fact that brown can function as blue in context never ceases to amaze me.

I did this kind of random photo study paying attention to areas of desaturation and saturation on the skin. Even in a kind of washed out photo the values don't approach white, and the information is still there to make the skin tone olive. Something I noticed about olive skin is that it's not really an all over change in skintone; a few touches of more yellow color gives the impression.

I really learned a lot from this photo study, because I tried some new brushes and techniques in photoshop some of which work and some of which don't, but also because I really tried to pay attention not only to the colors and values of the core shadows but the rythms of the minor shadows as well. A lot of my work tends to look flat because I am afraid of overemphasizing details and making my work look amateurish, so as a result sometimes I just don't paint any details or gradients. So this time I really tried to model the form.

It looks cheesy. Your painting is making me hungry.
