Trying out a portrait of rocker Sebastien Grainger... here's my progress
Dude... you rock. Thanks for the great posts and the very helpful tuts at crtlPaint.
Hey man, love your site (helped me figure out a lot of tools) and your work is really awesome. Keep it up!!!!!!
Simply awesome. Your blog was a pleasure to go through, your videos are very articulate and well put together.
Love your sketchbook, It's a great source of inspiration. But if I need to be critical, on the last one you need to soften the edges, and imply bounce light more in the pears - they seem a bit flat right now. I'm sure it is due to you having a different focus of the exercise, but still, doesn't hurt to point out.
Hey Matt! Juts wanted to say thanks for ctrlpaint! been on that page for a few hours..poring over all your tuts..the latest one looks like gold cause i love the way you render! long live the glossiness!
Recently I've been spending more of my personal-art time on my website, ctrlPaint. As a result, I'll start showing you some of that work here in my sketchbook. This upcoming week is all about Specularity (glossy highlights), and here are some screenshots. The general schedule is: two fee videos each week, Tuesday and Thursday. This week starts with brush technique for painting highlights, and then ends with this purple abstract thingy.
last update looks good.
& like how solid the work you do seems - esp pieces like #623, #572/#578 (thanks for the process on that one), #583/#588/#592/#600, #411 and #489. & others.
But given my weakness for birds - and how damn solid your painting is in #497 I just get really happy looking at it - esp. given the process images to it.
thanks for posting - and the blog seems cool too ~

just looked through your sketchbook and your website major help im loving the life studies of fruit in PS im doing a life study now and its so dammn hard i dont no how you see the colours and pick them so well in PS
I just clicked that link to your website and I really like all these little video lessons. Can't wait to watch more of them, really helpful when you don't know what to study next, and a good way to be efficient
Keep up the great work!
Amazing sb, I spent the whole night reading/looking. I've just started checking out Ctl+Paint, I reckon I know what I'll do tomorrow instead of work...
Great job and thanks in the name of beginners!
Hey man. Work is looking great as per usual, I especially like that portrait of the rocker.
A request for the tutorial site, could you show your process of painting portraits? It seems everyone has a different approach, and I'm currently trying to find a way that works for me. So far, the Reilly method seems easiest. Thanks man, and keep it up.
@ droid: I don't really have a method.. I do it a bit different every time. Someday, I hope to have a method. As for the Reilley Method -- that's cool! I didn't know it had a name. Thanks for the cool video!
Here are some quick drawings -- inspired by the reilley method.
Your studies are very useful, thanks man!
great updates! and your Ctrl Paint has greatly helped me although im not great at it haha but maybe someday
