Zebz Yeah i know. Making drawings and paintings stick out is one of my biggest problems. My art is kind of dull and washed out. Will have to fix that if I can.
Work in progress. Suggestions?
nice anatomy and shading!
especially this last photo ref guy.
Stonercurly Thanks a lot for popping by and for the kind words.
Another WIP. Would be nice to create some kind of a workflow so I wouldn't have to over and over the same spots. This I will propably finish. There's just so much to do in it.
that figure in digi caught my eye, its great! I like the ear the best, for some reason Keep on going with the digis and lets see some more work !!!
great stuff i really like the faces & crazy lighting
Hi Placeboast, looking at these digi's, they are coming along nicely structurally, but I'd like to point out something you shouldn't do in color painting(in my opinion). I see you using black/gray tones for shading color pieces, you should avoid using this method as blacks and grays only serve to muddy up your current colors. Try replacing blacks with dark blues, use self reference and or/photos to get correct skin tones, (with eyedropper, etc). Basically, try getting out of the habit of using black and grey and using real colors all out.(I'm only telling you because I used to do the same thing till it was pointed out) Hope this helps! Keep the work coming.

this one is really, really nice: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1183791391
You might try using some harder brushes in your digital work...all the soft edges deprive it of texture and make it look a little mushy.
Thank you guys for those kind words of yours.
Something from today that is certainly not finished. The eys are really shitty etc.. Will have to work it out some more. I found out that greyscle painting is so much fun and you really learn about the form and all...
Congrats man, I just looked through your whole sketchbook and the improvement from page one to today is simply fantastic! You have a way of making some very expressive eyes...I need to practice!
LIVE FREE. DRAW HARD.
My first painting oilpainting, with oils I got when I was about twelve, my brushes looked like they've just come from donkeys ass, and I've lost the black color somewhere along the way. So i went bluescale instead of greyscale. It is very much a work in progress. Two hours so far.

That's a pretty good start. I tried oils for the first time earlier this year, and they almost killed me. I hope you have good ventilation.
Max1975 I actually don't have good ventilation. I remembered when I started painting that I was almost suffocated by the turpentine fumes when I tried painting something ten years ago, so I bought odourless turpentine. It doesn't almost smell at all.
+1 Hour. Still not finished as you can see.
You're digitals are rocking! I know you said you weren't done yet, but his nose is a bit off because of the dark shadow above the nostril. Anyways keep up all this great work! Looking forward to the finished product
Hey there Placeboast, long time no see It seems like you've improved over much over the months i've been away. The only advice that popped into my mind would be to think about the contrast between light and dark and the quality of edges (sharp or soft) cryptic eh?
Very cool, i went all the way back to page one to see where you had came from... what a cool progression, i wish you all the best in your artistic future, just keep posting it here :-)
This one is amazing! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1183791391
I want to see this one refined!
huh... It's been a long long long time since my last post. Been really lazy
and there's really nothing much to show 'cause I've basically thrown every drawing away (garbage material).
Just one to keep this sb alive. it's a work in progres. Two hours so far.
oooh, back with a vengeance! you´ve done quite some progress while away from the ca boards.
that line going from the nosewing towards the jawline is way to sharp as it is now.
nice values so far, work on getting it a bit lighter in the areas that is not in the shadows. and then get the highlights on.
Very nice Lincoln piece! The anatomy studies are well done, but the baby portrait is the best. Very nice work with all. It seems like everyone I've visited so far has been making a return back to this site, like I'm doing right now. I hope to see more work
Hey man, how's life?
Abe doesn't quite look like Abe, but it's a really nice drawing. The baby is adorable, and the studies are excellent, paricularly the second one--line and light and shade are doing a great job of capturing form there.
Hey Placeboast nice to see you posting here That Lincoln picture is really top noch!
