    Thanks to Mully's inspirational Ustream show earlier, I am doing my first foray into digital painting... and I suck.

    Eventually, I want her to be roling her eyes in frustration as someone tells her smoking is bad for her. The hand comes into play later.

    Anyways, I think its a good start but I need you bastards to tear it apart and change my mind. Thanks!

    I think you should lower the chin (to give her more chin/jaw there)...and if she's rolling her eyes, the irises+pupils should be higher up, and probably half-covered by the top eyelid. I'd exaggerate the curve of the eyebrows a bit - make the inner side a bit lower, so it's more obvious that she's rolling her eyes, and not just looking up.

    Also, his name is spelled "Steven".

    Maybe you should post your best attempt up at Stephen and we can tell you where you've turned wrong with Stephen's eyes. Stephen.

    The whole point of doing that kind of study is to bash your head against it until you get it right. If you give up before that happens then you're missing out on the most tender and juicy of knowledges.

    WIP of my first oil painting in about 4 years. There's a lot of shit wrong with it-hands, face, sleeves, crown, and I think I ballsed up the proportions resulting in his looking like he's humping out of his seat rather than sitting down, but somehow it's still not as awful as I feared it probably would be. Probably should have went with a smaller palette and a still life subject instead.

    Okay, cool. I will work on these tonight. The eyes were on a seperate layer and are just there for fun... she looked creepy with no eyes. :)

    Pretty sick, Bacon. You're right, he looks kind of like he's sliding out of his chair. You'd need ot show less of the top of his legs and somehow convey a little more that his torso is moving back in space. Probably by showing the muscles with a very slight upward curve around his torso. Though, you don't have to listen to me. I was never very good with that position myself. It's kind of awkward to draw/paint.

    As for the colors, I think it looks sweet, and I really like the stonework in the BG.

    How big is this? As it is, it looks pretty detailed, but if it's like 18 x24 or something it might need a little more in the wood. Which seems to be kind of blocked out if it's large. And the armrest under his left (our right) side needs more contrast as of this picture. I can't tell where the corner of it is.

    Who likes graffiti?!

    Update on this thing, pretty much finished now:

    condor_finished.jpg

    The paint at the bottom drips into a pool on the ground and runs down hill (its on a ramp in a carpark). Looks pretty neato :D

    Also some stuff I did a few months ago with a spray can. Terrible photos, I apologise. But I like them anyways:

    I like the brick work on the left a lot, Bacon. Though his hands look too small and his torso looks as if it's made of clay and rock.

    Sorta/not really- just doing this one to try and get used to oils before doing starting on the one for class. The assignment for the first few weeks is to do a pickout method illo/master study/reffed piece- I'll probably do a master study to get my feet wet. I don't think anything needs to be done on it for next class except for having the prep work/ref picked out.

    And yeah I'm agreeing with pretty much all of these crits- result of not spending more time on the drawing beforehand, I guess I was a bit too jazzed to try and start painting after seeing Erik's demo- I'm actually using his leftover paint from it for my piece. (Not having any white is driving me a little crazy.) I think I'll try fixing up the drawing in photoshop and then see if I can replicate that in paint.

    Oh yeah @ Radar, it's 9x12. Not falling into the art school 'make everything HUUUUUUUUGEEEEEEEEE' trap again, at least not while I remain poor.

    Not having any white is probably a pretty good exercise for you in reality.

    I used to go to USC sometimes with my buddy who was a fine art major there....and I would setup my easel and start painting...but it was always pretty funny because at the largest I was working 8"x10" where as all of the paintings around me were closer to 8'x10'. And they definitely weren't better for it...

    working huge is ridunkulous, I dont understand why you would make such a huge piece unless you were super duper good and had some sort of grand idea of a painting

    18"x24" makes sense to me. The bigger you work, the more detail you can produce. But 8'x10' is too big.

    Tamworth is correct indeed. I'm trying to get some extra cash doing pet portraits for people, and this will be the header on my flier. Old people who love dogs also love watercolors because they are artsy and refined.
