    ideally I would have had time to work on these earlier this week

    but the workload for my classes tends to force these sorts of projects to be last minute

    I did take last friday off to rest, but otherwise I've been working pretty much non-stop

    I'd give you some advice on how to mitigate it, but I don't have a damn clue beyond "be more careful".

    yeah, I think I'm just being too hasty. Need to be more cautious, but at this point? Fuck it.

    A helpful tip when working with charcoal/conte crayon on toned paper is to pull back on your darks and put more emphasis on your lights.

    You'd be surprised how little black you actually need to make something three-dimensional.

    yeah, I really need to learn to trust the tone of the paper

    it's tough, I'm not used to using a toned paper, but it's fun

    So much improvement, dude. DigiPen will really do that to ya. Work you to the bone, but the results are great. The one thing I gotta say is that I like the feet midterm picture, but the cartoony menacing eyes are a big put off to me. Would have been interesting to see hands begin to wrap around the ankles or something more suspenseful, if that's what you were going for.

    If you ever want some one on one advice or got any questions, my schedules pretty open as well on campus. Great stuff, man.

    the first actual painting I've ever done. About 2 1/2 hours in class. Need to do some touchup work, but it's nearly done.

    n526238959_1422777_6611000.jpg

    need to bring up the saturation on the little orange and the plum and add some more yellow and red to the apples, and play with the shadows, as well as add the indentation where the stem comes out of the apple, but otherwise, thoughts?

    edit: woah it looks bad on camera - the colors here are waaay different than on the actual painting

    Are you required to finish it in class? Two and a half hours doesn't seem long enough to me. You have to set up your composition, lay it out onto canvas, find your color centers and test strips, THEN you can paint.

    Or maybe i'm just bitter that it takes fucking forever for us to do a painting, I don't know.

    yeah it was all in class

    we've got time to finish it, but we don't have the still life to work from any more, so we did as much as we could

    mine was one of the more finished ones, luckily

    Is that oil/acrylic, or something else? Either way, it's looking pretty good for a first painting; I like the toned shadows you've got going, though I suppose as you said the colors are off in the picture, it wouldn't do much good to critique them here...

    ...though that makes the piece really hard to critique; for instance, the piece in general is kind of lacking a sense of depth, but based on the picture, I'd say it's because the colors of the fruit are too consistent (there'd be a change, in other words, from the highlights to the shadows, not just in lightness, but also in hue and saturation (generally warmer and more saturated in the light regions). But that could just be the picture.

    It's not too hard to take a reasonably accurate picture of a painting with a camera, if you know the principles to follow. Did you adjust the white balance of the picture, for instance? If your earlier pictures are an indication, that's gonna be a cell phone camera, so I imagine you can't really adjust exposure, or put it on a tripod, but if it's got a white balance option buried somewhere, that can help at least a little.

    acrylic

    the shadows are toned because the light we were using was going through a yellow gel, shifting the shadows toward violet

    and it was on my cel phone, I'll try using my actual camera and make some color adjustments in photoshop to try to match the original more once I do the touch-ups

    Well, technically the shadows were still grey, but perception is a funny thing that way (and you were still right to paint them violet).

    Anyway, if you do take the picture with your camera, and it has a manual setting, try setting it for around f-5.6, with a shutter speed that will give you the lightest picture without blowing out the highlights (if the camera shows histograms, perfect) (also, you might need a tripod or steady surface to pull that off)--you can then adjust the levels in Photoshop, and since the lighter side of the tonal range has more info than the darker side, it should give you a better picture. I think. Photographers, correct me, please. Also, if possible, set your camera's optical zoom as far in as it'll go, so you minimize distortion.

    my first dialog test

    issues with drifting and volume, but the character of the character reads, and the lip sync works pretty well. I should have staggered the audio a frame or two, and I'd like to go in and fix some issues and do cleanup, but schedule is tiiiiiight right now

    alright, for my final for tone color comp, I need to do a self-portrait as a character in costume and environment from a game, movie, whatever

    so I figured what better chance to draw some badass fucking space marines and stick my head in there

    I roughed out a comp in photoshop in about 20 minutes or so to get a feeling for it and would love some feedback/help

    I gotta paint this in acrylic, so any help on how to pull that off (how to start, etc) would be extremely helpful, as I've only done like four paintings ever, and only one to completion, and that was some fucking fruit

    Comp_1_sm.jpg

    thoughts? please?

    no, but, seriously, you need to use hard brushes along with soft ones, otherwise everything's going to run together. Also, that suit is way too small to be space marine power armor.
