An anatomy study. Hopefully I'll have more to post later today.
I made this playing around with the new Painter. It's highly inspired by master Andrew Jones, of course. If imitation is the highest form of flattery then perhaps I flattered Andrew a bit too much...
It's also (pretty much) the first thing I've painted on my new Mac. The screen resolution is unreal!
in a lot of your paintings i can see that at points you are probably fiddling around looking for the mark instead of thinking about the mark you are going to put down. seems like a lot of your work is very brushy, which is great, but if you work this way you just want to make sure to minimize arbitrary decisions.
also in your application of textures, i think you are relying to much on specialty brushes. typically this is of no detriment. But you should try to understand your marks better or else they can detract from what you are trying to do with those marks.
For instance, the man with the beard. I think its cool that you used the scratchy brush, but you totally ignored rules of textural contrast and thus the image fails to read in its true potential.
on a similar note contrast is important like economy. things that are sharp appear so because of their juxtaposition, and vice-versa. the last picture you posted looks great because it strikes a beautiful balance between this fact. and you're right details typically go with the most important components. but i dont think its set in stone. this recent picture also works well because you avoid flat tones by implementing noise. this also you did in your self portrait. this is a great way to be economic with space.
economy with color is important to. but can be more difficult i suppose. the last picture is a success because you payed attention to color temperature more than you have in previous work.
take a look at Jaime Jones' work.

Awesome paintings, I'll have to try out some different techniques in my stuff.

I was a bit inspired by someone's post with the digital process following someone's oil process, so I decided to try it myself. I did a study of someone's tutorial on flemish oil painting which is the classical technique. I don't normally spend two days on my studies but I definitely felt like I learned quite a bit doing this one. In Painter 12.
And here are the 7 (or rather 8) steps for the flemish study. And here are the 7 (or rather 8) steps for the flemish study. The paint layers were all at 80% opacity so that there would be some transparency like oil paint.
Alright, well here's what I've been working on over the past week. It's a poster for an upcoming gig. It could probably use some color but this will be my first time screenprinting so I want to keep things simple.

I finished printing all of my YOB • DARK CASTLE • DISPIRIT • WORM OUROBOROS posters. If you would like one but CANNOT attend the show, please send me a message with your address and I'll put one aside for you. They are $15 + shipping. Each is an original screen printed piece of artwork that is signed and numbered by yours truly. They're 23 by 13 inches.
I've seen you around the forums often enough that I should be watching your sketchbook right about now so I can learn from you
This piece is titled 'Omnipresent' and was created as part of the Memento Mori group show at the Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco. It's in graphite on bristol and the drawing itself is 8x8 inches. You can see or buy the piece at the gallery starting August 20th through September . See their website for more info: http://www.moderneden.com/home.html
I have some extra posters from last night here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...#ht_500wt_1136
Wow! I love the diversity in your artwork, technique-wise! You've got some really cool styles goin on!
