Digital Painting

I'm trying yet again to paint some stuff using Photoshop CS3. Here is a weird creature looking at some rocks... Yes. I really need to work on backgrounds/background ideas and detail.

I am trying to work with colour as well... I need to start paying more attention to the colours I'm choosing, and not just doing what I think "fits" because... I am becoming dissatisfied with the results.

Painting again

I've been brooding for a long time about what to mail to NL to my PMU cohorts for a cafe feature thingy... so I've finally started painting. I'm going to mail them drawings and some portrait paintings. Exploring myself and my life.

Here is my first acrylic painting. (I've dabbled with them once before on some scrap canvas paper... haha)

Here is a WIP shot. I really need to take advantage of a sunny day, go outside and get some good shots of my larger pieces.

I'm really enjoying the medium. I just need to figure out/fix my earring. =P I miss oils though. I had them figured right through.

Perspective Class

I'm taking a class in perspective. The first class went over 1 point and 2 point perspective. Our second class was "draw this hallway in 1 point." Here are the results of those lessons.

In the first class: He hauled out a giant cube (metal bars) and told us to draw it. Then halfway through he tossed on a pillow and told us to include that with some tonal study.

Here he showed us how to prop up our drawing boards, and we spent the next 2 and a half hours breaking our backs drawing the hallway in front of us in one point perspective. I'm learning a lot and starting to enjoy perspective. Crazy huh?
