OFDW 021: Feb. 16, 2007 - Mar. 16, 2007

Welcome to the TWENTY-FIRST thread of the Open Figure Drawing Workshop!!!

This workshop is open to any medium and any style. Some informal moderation
will be gladly provided by Joel Carlo / Rebecca Kimmel ~ however, the purpose of the
Workshop is for Artists to interact with and informally critique one another’s work.

For this OFDW, we are trying something new - a themed Workshop in which the topic is:

"Angels & Devils"

The goal of this Workshop is to COMPLETE one or more FINISHED Master Copies and/or unique pieces.This is unlike the Anatomy Lesson Series in which the goal is quantity. Here, it's QUALITY of one or two finished pieces.

Guidelines for OFDW 021:


1. The theme is "Angels & Devils".

2. You have 1 MONTH in which to create EITHER a finished master copy or a unique piece using the theme outlined above. All artwork can be done can be done in either traditional or digital, drawing or painting, sculpture or 3D model.

3. An angel or devil may be female or male, human or creature, young or old. Both, however, must be a living organism and not something inorganic. You must also use PHYSICAL traits that make an angel or devil easily recognizable to the viewer. Characteristics such as wings and horns are encouraged but can be broadly interpreted.

4. You may place your interpretation of an angel or devil within an environment, but it is not completely necessary. The emphasis of this OFDW will be more on technique and character development (including both physiological and psychological aspects). The goal is to create an image that displays a character's personality and temperament through its physical attributes.

5. Creativity in composition is encouraged! You can either do a detail, portraits, partial or full body layouts so long as the image stays true to the theme listed above.

6. While not required, it is suggested that you post concept sketches as well as WIP of your stages of work. WIP is strongly encouraged in the OFDWs!

7. If you are creating a unique piece, please aim for a high level of finish - not just sketches. The purpose of this workshop is to help you develop your anatomy,drawing, and painting skills. Cartoon/cell-shaded/manga style images are discouraged.

8. TRACING IS NOT ALLOWED! However, using grid techniques is acceptable.

9. Only work created after the beginning of this workshop will be accepted. Work created before the posting of this workshop is not allowed.

10. Please note that FINISHED WORK ONLY will be SPOTLIGHTED!


Note: This Workshop will last 4 weeks.

Hey guys, I wanna try out for this, I've got some questions, that maybe you could help me with:sad:
I did read the rules, but I'm still not sure, are those images you posted references, the way our drawings should look like, or maybe the detail of anatomy we should use, sorry may sound confusing :)
Also Is this tread for anyone, meaning yes, I'll try my best to create a quality image, but my best may not be good enough :P Is this for experienced members only?
And last questions, are caricatures allowed(just wondering :P ) or do we have to stick to solid construction and anatomy
Anyway yeah I'd really like to join this tread, It'd be really great if you could help me with these questions, thanks :)

For this workshop you can do one of two things:

1) Create a master copy using the references posted above
2) Create your own unique image based on the Angels and Devils theme

Regardless of skill level, anyone is welcome to participate so long as they adhere to the rules... one of which is #7 which states that cartoon/cell-shaded/manga style images are discouraged. The purpose of this workshop is to help you develop your anatomy, life drawing, and painting skills... not cartooning skills :D

You should push for a high level of detail in your final image(s), equivalent or close to the references posted above. The workshop is open for one month which should be plenty of time to create a highly polished master copy or unique image, regardless of your skill level. Try to do your best and push yourself to create great art. Good luck!

Hey, This OFDW21 is what I need to keep me sane, right now.

Hi Joel, So nice to have you hosting this workshop. Am anticipating some tremendous 2d and 3D work soon to show up. Hey Rebecca, nice call in inviting the lovely MHChimp to the helm.

Didn't get to finish my start, so I'm pulling the image. It will probably appear in my SB when I finish.

Hi, everyone!

I'm newbie here, and I've come from CA.org. I'm trying to expand my contacts with other artists, and I found great ones here.

I'll try to take part on this workshop, it seems to be very interesting.

I'd really like to enter this. I don't have much time, but I think one month should have some free hours for me xP Heck, even if I don't finish it'll still be a good exercise.
Newbie question: Where do we post the WIPs? In this thread, in our personal WIP threads, or an anatomy forum sketchbook?
Another one: In the process of painting, is it alright to switch from original to master copy or from one copy to another? Kills the time and such, but is it allowed anyway?

Newbie question: Where do we post the WIPs? In this thread, in our personal WIP threads, or an anatomy forum sketchbook?
I'll answer this question but will let Joel answer the rest. :) Eishiya, you are definitely encouraged to post WIPs and your finished piece to this thread as well as to any other personal thread/s you may have. If you do not have a Personal Sketchbook (http://forums.cgsociety.org/forumdisplay.php?f=200) thread you are welcome and encouraged to create one, though by no means do you have to. :) The strength of these Workshops is seeing everyone's work in one place, and being able to push one another to improve, so I hope that everyone will post their work here.

Another one: In the process of painting, is it alright to switch from original to master copy or from one copy to another? Kills the time and such, but is it allowed anyway?
You are welcome to work on as many different pieces as you wish, but you will probably get the most out of the Workshop by trying to complete one or more finished pieces. The goal here is polish and finish, as the OFDWs are really designed to help artists refine their rendering skill and ability to complete a piece.

Hope that helps! :)

Great,

i'm in :-D

Just a little question: i don't have to copy an existing painting right? I would want to create something new that i would love to try. My intension would be to create a composition and pose from scratch, and then use reference to study anatomy and detail.
Since i only participated the anatomy sketches, i'm not completely clear on how far we can go here.

cheers

AztcFireFlower - Thanks! I'm glad to be here and eqally excited to see some great work.... speaking of which, looks like youre off to a wonderful start!:)


alfiojr - A master copy is a copy or emulation of a painting or drawing created by a Master painter. In essence, you are recreating a painting done by an exalted fine artist such as the ones shown in the references. A unique piece is a piece done of your own volition and one which is not a direct copy of someone elses work.


ericgerhard - Great to have you here and looking forward to seeing what you come up with :)


Blaz Porenta - I'm happy to hear you are inspired by the references. I took a great deal of time trying to find images that fit the theme and also inspired me in the same way :)


icedeyes - These workshops are a great way to finetune your abilities regardless of skill level. Glad to have you onboard!


Michael Olszak - Looking forward to seeing your work!


Marcus Ottosson - Great start! Even in this early stage your composition is strong... very nice :)

killermachine - Glad to have you here and please feel free to ask any question or requests for crits. I will be more than happy to oblige :)

antodonnell - I wouldnt say the workshops are competitions... atleast not against other artists. I tend to look at them as competition against myself to see if I can do better than the last :)


mark-jenkins - Took the words right out of my mouth:) Glad to hear youll be participating!

I have an idea for my angel/demon, but I am not sure whether it would be okay here.

I am speaking of a real life demon. He does not exist today as he died in 1985, but I think doing him would be sufficient for a demon and an angel. An angel because he was known by many as the 'Angel of Death'. I speak of a man named Dr. Josef Mengele. I will keep from the demonic details, but I will say this: he was a supposed scientist working in genetics and was appointed the post of Senior Doctor at the noctorious Auchwitz Deathcamp in 1942. He experimented on people of all ages and was the guy who chose who would live and who would be gassed. For those who know him, you probably agree that he is a demon in human form.

This is a rough sketch of him in action at teh Selection. Would I be able to carry on with this here? I am probably still going to do it, whether shown here or not.

I have colour coded it to explain my intentions. The light blue 'people' are the twins that he selected at the Selections ramp (when the Jews came off the train). The red people are the SS guards and the person on the box is Mengele. The people in the foreground are the people waiting for selection. The chimneys in the back are the crematoriums, which are being disguised by the hedges and fence.

He fits into the criteria as a demon, if they ever exist/ed.

hey all,

i've been busy for a few hours now, and i think it's time to post something. I think much could change on this thing, but we'll get there somehow.
I'll try and do a typical work with the combination between the angel and the devil. This is more like the contrast between the visible and the non-visible.

cheers

i'm not sure of whom you speak, but i like your idea. can't see any reason why it shouldn´t be ok to post it here, devils exist in many forms. like you illustration too :) it's gonna be exciting to see what you have in mind.

Thanks. I did not like any of the samples on the reference sheet so I figured I would just make my own up. The reason why it may not be appropriate is because its a very sensitive subject to a lot of people. I will wait to see what Reb/Mecha says.

Hmmm...kind of on the fence about this one. I understand the intent but I think generally it's a good idea to steer clear of political / controversial subjects like this so I would request that you perhaps take a different tack...it's not to discourage you from doing something creative, it's just that subjects like these can lead to flame wars and it is a sensitive topic, so that is something I would respectfully request that we avoid.

Hope you understand. :)

oh yay! Another workshop! :D

I'll probably start number 2 either tonight or tomarrow. I want to do it in color though w/a few things of my own thrown in.

Although, I'm kinda tempted to do my own thing....since I've got a master study in the works right now. (it's in my sketchbook thread) I could take the things I'm learning in that study and apply it to another work.

I dunno... We'll see, I'll do something for this as I <3 the theme soo much!

I really like everyone's progress/ideas so far, can't wait to see what becomes of them!

Seriously, Rubens' satyr is such a great image. So much personality! :D

Okay, so here's my miserable little try. :)
I sort of tried to tilt the angle slightly, just to test myself, but I came to realize I'm not quite there yet. :hmm:
So well well, here's where I ended up! Gonna do an absolute copy instead now!

I have an idea for my angel/demon, but I am not sure whether it would be okay here.

I am speaking of a real life demon. He does not exist today as he died in 1985, but I think doing him would be sufficient for a demon and an angel. An angel because he was known by many as the 'Angel of Death'. I speak of a man named Dr. Josef Mengele. I will keep from the demonic details, but I will say this: he was a supposed scientist working in genetics and was appointed the post of Senior Doctor at the noctorious Auchwitz Deathcamp in 1942. He experimented on people of all ages and was the guy who chose who would live and who would be gassed. For those who know him, you probably agree that he is a demon in human form.

This is a rough sketch of him in action at teh Selection. Would I be able to carry on with this here? I am probably still going to do it, whether shown here or not.

I have colour coded it to explain my intentions. The light blue 'people' are the twins that he selected at the Selections ramp (when the Jews came off the train). The red people are the SS guards and the person on the box is Mengele. The people in the foreground are the people waiting for selection. The chimneys in the back are the crematoriums, which are being disguised by the hedges and fence.

He fits into the criteria as a demon, if they ever exist/ed.



I would also have to agree with Rebecca on this.

Although there is a bit a of leeway to some of the guidleines, I feel your interpretation of what a demon is does not closely follow the guidelines to this workshop. Controversial subjects can also be a sensitive matter to some and not particularly welcome. In this type of situation, it is better to concentrate more on creating an image which adheres more closely to the workshop guidelines than to broad interepretation.

Remember, first and foremost, the workshops are put together for the goal of practicing figure drawing/painting and anatomy. If you still feel strongly about your idea, my suggestion would be to work on it on your time as you stated.

I've been here for awhile, but mostly in the DSForums. I've never participated in one of these, but I'd like to try.

While this isn't a replica of any of the master works, I'm trying to draw from more than one of them for inspiration, composition, pose, lighting, etc. I've always wanted to do a chiaroscuro painting. :)

Does this meet the guidelines?
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v516/Mercuralis/angel1.jpg

I think compositionally, I need to expand my canvas a little on the top and bottom. I have a tendency to get really caught up in trying to perfect the anatomy, which results in it being wrong anyway and it looking incredibly stiff. I'm trying to loosen up a little, and I feel like this is a good start.

Should I keep going with it, or throw it in the scraps?

Cavematty - Good to have you back and thanks for the compliment on the IFX tuts!

matwire - Looking very nice! Keep the great updates coming!

almostkungfu - glad to see youre experimenting! If youre up to it, my suggestion would be to keep playing with it and maybe use a photo reference similar to the position/angle your subject is in. Otherwise, looking forward to seeing your master copy :)

Nothingness - I like your idea! Im definitely interested in seeing how you develop it further. Good luck!

Ravmaster - I think youre off to a good start but your proportions need work. Have you ever considered blocking out dimensions with just raw shapes? Its a common technique that has really helped me in the past for gauging proportions and could be something that may help out a bit. Since youre working in natural media, I would suggest using some light gray design markers to lay down your shapes to rough out your basic light and dark areas first and then lay down your line work over your value study. Ive made a quick example done in PS to show you the general idea:

Mdogger - damn you're flying with this one! Awesome already.

vincent1 - very impressive start :bounce:

Looking forward to following everyone's progress...

I'm going to do the Satyr by Rubens and I intend to go all the way through with this one - modeling, sculpting, texturing, lighting - the whole shebang! :) I haven't done much texturing in a looooong while so it will be loads of fun and I'm looking forward to this [especially that I suck with lighting :scream:]

Here's a humble beginning, not much yet - just a couple of hours or so - I'm not that concerned with irregularities in the mesh at this point - just want the geo to match the original painting and still be a 3d model that I could rotate around, which is never easy :/ and most of the time impossible because of the shortcuts the painters are allowed! Well I'll do my best!
I love this guy's expression.... hehee...

oh and btw - I edited the guy behind him from the original LOL - just doing one!

Hi everyone. Thought this looked like an excellent opportunity to up my realistic painting skills, along with hopefully getting some decent c&c out of it.
I've gone ahead and chosen a master painting that wasn't on the list; Giovanni Baglione's Divine and Profane Love. Hope that's ok. Let me know if i'm not supposed to do that...
Here's the original for ref, and my very quick start at blocking everything in:
I've also decided to try and do this entirely in Painter rather than Photoshop, a programme ive always wanted to get to grips with and this seems the perfect opportunity.
I think what I might also do is possibly change a couple of elements slightly like turn the sword of light into a real sword, and sort out the angel's terrible hair... Also Baglione did two versions of this picture; this one and another with the devils face showing which I'd like to try and incorporate here.

Colour me tickled! I'm defintely in when I get through this glut of work!

Hello! Fantastic works, people :)

That's the first time I take a part in workshops, I hope I can keep a pace to you.

I haven't chosen my theme, yet, I believe I should try a master copy since I have problems with proportions and perspective, also with copying itself, so I would learn more that way. Though for a start a concept I of an idea I had last night.

http://img160.imageshack.us/img160/5712/szkic1ib0.jpg


Actually the angel should be falling into darkness and visible from more narrow angle, from the bottom. The hands appeared on their own and didn't want to fade away...
I'll sketch it again and try to paint it after the workshops :)

A master copy is a copy or emulation of a painting or drawing created by a Master painter. In essence, you are recreating a painting done by an exalted fine artist such as the ones shown in the references. A unique piece is a piece done of your own volition and one which is not a direct copy of someone elses work.

I'm just trying to decide between 3 masterpieces, basing on which I like most (not working), what elements there I want to practice (well, that's better) and finally - what elements I can't see there. What I mean - I've got a light monitor, so it's not the case here - I don't see some parts of the painting, they are too dark out of time or artist didn't paint them. Things like demon's face details or what is happening with his legs here (http://www.wga.hu/art/r/raphael/5roma/5/03satan.jpg) for example. The question is - does the master copy has to be the same dot in dot with the original or am I allowed to change it a bit? Intentionally, I don't speak now of some unwanted changes which will appear in the process, I'll try to fix them with your help. Apart stating what's going on with the example leg I was thinking also on changing faces or some details, though I'm not sure if it will not ba a blasphemy to the original.

Also - I don't need to mimic the ageing of the original I hope? Cracks, fading etc.

Sorry if these are silly questions, but I'm a newbe here :)

whoah, i'm gonna have to book to catch up! great work getting started here. in particular:

vincent1, it's great to see how you work from broader to more defined over the entire piece, i need to take a lesson there.
mdogger, i envy the energy of your brushwork.
AztecFireFlower -- really anticipating your satyrs, i was impressed with your last piece in OFDW20

i'm planning a synthesis of master copy and original. L. Giordano's Fall of the Rebel Angels reminded me very much of a sketch i did about 30+ years ago depicting a zero-gravity sport:

http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/1676/zgballsmallwebxp1.jpg

so i'll be reinterpreting the image in the same vein, teams being Devils and Angels, of course. so far all i've done is blocked the action in and barely indicated a few reinterpretations of the elements. i used a loose grid to keep things reasonably accurate.
http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/351/chipandprog1qf5.jpg

this is the current size of the image, and after i decide where the BG is going (leaning toward a domed stadium with Giordano's clouds filling the sky, their color being so Mars-like to my eye) and block in the basic tones and hues, i'll probably up the rez before proceeding to finish.

not much of a progress yet....didn´t have much time...

I was trying to block in some colors and shapes...just a beginning, so that i find a place to start :)

The first image of this type...ok...the first image i draw, that has characters in it...so...let´s see, where it ends ;)

very basic hue & tone structure laid in, trying to keep Giordano's palette as a guide, determining who's on what team, extending figures where they'r lost in the original's shadow. perspective with a slightly slanted horizon established, stadium and BG cloud structure suggested. time soon to rez up an start getting serious. btw, the floating spheres are the "box seats", in lieu of L.G.'s angels.

I'm just trying to decide between 3 masterpieces, basing on which I like most (not working), what elements there I want to practice (well, that's better) and finally - what elements I can't see there. What I mean - I've got a light monitor, so it's not the case here - I don't see some parts of the painting, they are too dark out of time or artist didn't paint them. Things like demon's face details or what is happening with his legs here (http://www.wga.hu/art/r/raphael/5roma/5/03satan.jpg) for example. The question is - does the master copy has to be the same dot in dot with the original or am I allowed to change it a bit? Intentionally, I don't speak now of some unwanted changes which will appear in the process, I'll try to fix them with your help. Apart stating what's going on with the example leg I was thinking also on changing faces or some details, though I'm not sure if it will not ba a blasphemy to the original.

Also - I don't need to mimic the ageing of the original I hope? Cracks, fading etc.

Sorry if these are silly questions, but I'm a newbe here :)

Sirielle - You dont have copy a master image down to every single detail. The point is to try and copy it to see how closely you can match it. You are more than welcome to change aspects of a master copy to suite your needs, however, please be sure that your final image follows to the workshop theme accordingly. If youre unsure what is safe ro unsafe, re-read the guidelines carefully. - J

Still i fear to do the face. Let's hope for the best.

Samanthie great start on your pencil work. can't wait to see it with more contrast!

Deracus nice start... mind the proportions though

eduart wonderful to see your progres on that satyr. Maybe add just a bit of peachy orange to his skin here and there

Mercuralis that's indeed looking very nice. was wondering if it would read better if you would move the characters more to the left (crop some of her wing if you have to)...

deathstarchris great concept... what if their heads would cross more diagonally? it would make the poses even more dynamic I think... just thinking out loud here ;)

nimal wonderful value study as is already!

Nothingness her right foot seems a bit small. looks great overall though!

iman121 Would love to see you make a value study in greyscale

vANON it's coming along nicely and here's thinking you've already learned a lot which is what this OFDW is for, right?


Glenn... awesome, as usual! Curious about next stage

Rebecca... idem :)

kboss nice idea to give that character heavy armor. His right wrist/forearm is bothering me... seems too thick

matwire I think his nose is a bit off (angle). Looking great sofar though Keep going!

Keep it up y'all

Well here is my take.

Since I have never, and I mean never done one of these before, I chose to go with a small detail. I am pretty pleased with how it all came out.

I learned a TON doing this, and if I have time I may start on another one.

Here are the process images, from start to finish, where I saved them at. All in all about 4 hours in this.

Rebecca, i'd also love to see a dragon from you some time, something to really make St. George sweat ;)

Eduart -- nice progs on the satyr, he's looking very lascivious in the latest

Mercuralis, you've got a classic sedution going on there, loking forward to more progress. maybe think about having the angel emerging from shadow similar to the devil? she's very strongly lit at present for chiarosucro.

DeathStarChris -- interesting idea, but aren't angels supposed to be genderless, like a species separate from humans?

iman121 -- keep on truckin'! things are starting to develop well

nimal -- thank you for the compliment. i'm just a pipsqueak compared to Matisse, though. i often develop greyscale first and then color as well, we should compare techniques for coloring sometime.

kboss -- good things starting to happen, the armor looking particularly snappy. keep it up!

SpiritDreamer -- the juicy impasto look of the base of the horns is an eye-grabber, hope it stays through the Zbrush treatment. possibly dumb question -- did you intend for both horns to be pointing in the same direction?

vANON -- i like the way your forms are starting to interact, quite a feeling of gruesome activity happening.

killermachine -- good start, interesting seeing the sketch done in non-repro blue. you a cartoonist, comix artist, keyliner?

Nothingness -- your "vain angel = fallen angel" concept is solid (isn't Vanity one of the seven deadlies?). have you thought about the angel adoring herself and the devil making eye contact?

Matwire -- solid strokes on the satyr, great leeriness in the eyes.

shanesart -- coming along well; i like the alternate horns better, good volume in the sketch

default-rol -- what size is your canvas? pic makes it look generous for a detail but i'm just guessing. good start!

mhovland -- lookin' good, interesting seeing the many steps.

Asatira -- good warm-up sketch. will you be doing a full tone drawing for your piece?

MechaHateChimp -- i really like the "humanity" i see in your latest devil sketch, like maybe it's a turn on the "angel come down to earth and becomes human" story. a reluctant devil?

whew!

wanted to finish the stadium tonight but i'm too bushed. here's the prog so far:
http://img296.imageshack.us/img296/6746/chipandprog4ov3.jpg

Giordano's cherubs are now fans in anti-grav box seats, with the required funny hats. is the crowd texture working OK?

Wow, there's some awesome work going on in this thread, should prove to be a great workshop, kudos to joel for picking a great topic.

Here's my start:
http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e241/arithonslove/OFDW21wip1.jpg

based on this reference stock photo: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/47518087/ which was too Bougereau/Leighton to pass up. So that's how I'm going to attempt (being the operative word here) to colour it. Maybe in Painter, if it doesn't scare me off.

Joel I love the flow of your charcoal drawings, but I think this last one is my fave of the two I've seen. The first guy reminded me a bit of Spawn!

Rebecca Wow, that rubens copy almost beats the original for me... so much dynamism and action in those strokes, quite gorgeous. It's great to see you working from imagination, not that I don't love your master copies (see previous comment!), but it's something different, which is always good! The first sketch reminded me of the lochness monster a little, before you added the horse's torso and hooves.

Glenn Recognised yours from your anatomy thread, and it's great to see you giving life to that character with the usual SpiritDreamer flair! Love the texture the liquify has given the hair, one of the best uses of that filter I've seen.

Chipmasque this one grabbed me for its sheer ingeniuity, i really love the way you've interpreted the original painting, and the trickery in the clouds paying homage to the original wings is a wonderful touch. Kudos on the metal too, thats damnable hard to paint and look convincing, but you make it look easy!

Eduart love the colours in that Satyr's face (is it a satyr? I forget..) and you've pinned that knowing expression really nicely.

Shanesart lovely lines with those sketches and I really like the expression the demon has, he looks like a real mischief maker.

kboss lovely start you've got there with that master copy, the colours look to be pretty spot on, keep up the good work!

Iman121 a solid start... you might find it easier putting a layer of colour in the background, something like a very dark or mid grey, it makes colour visualising a lot easier. Also a bigger brush would eliminate the need for the back and forth look there is to your brush strokes at the minute, and would give the figures mass and weight, rather than just line... you can always get the small brushes out once your basic shapes and colours are in!

mercuralis I love the subject matter and the pose, right up my alley! The woman's skin tones seem a little on the grey side at the moment, perhaps a little more saturation in some key areas like shoulders, elbows and her face would really liven her up and give her some angelic glow!

Debbie lovely start, you're stuff's coming on in leaps and bounds. Love the delicate pencil work, and having seen your last piece, can't wait to see where you go with the lighting.

Rebeccak
02-20-2007, 03:47 AM
chipmasque, hehe, thanks! Yeah I think this is looking a bit medieval but I'm kind of liking it even if it isn't totally intentional. :)

Really love the direction in which yours is heading. Would possibly like to see a bit more contrast, and am highly curious to see how you complete the piece. Love the ambition of the project!

Zeph, thanks so much! Always great to have your participation here. I've no doubt your piece will turn out great!

An update on mine, trying to make it slightly less dragonlike, though I like the oddness of it so far - it's missing ears and a leg, but hey: :D

hi, Zephyri. thanks for your comments, i'm pleased you're enjoying my spin-off. the spheres may look easy (that's always someting to strive for) but they're the reason i stalled before i wanted to. by contrast, the fan figures were a breeze, taking about 1/10 the time of the spheres!

i have a suggestion for your angel's halo, based on my memories of religious art as a kid. they always seemed to be perched over the rear of the crown of the head, a bit like a disembodied hat brim:
http://img294.imageshack.us/img294/413/haloideakg7.jpg

just an idea, if it works in your composition, which is very appealing. i like how the devilish one seems to be pushing at the angel.

edit @ Rebecca: yep, contrast needs some love, also fine tuning the balance between the hues. i almost always adjust final contrast and hue structure after the pic is painted, and often during the painting, it allows me to use a fairly limited palette to start, and focus on brushstrokes and edges, which i need to muscle up. could never do that in traditional media, but it's part of my process in digital.

Quick value study... I fixed the head... not sure what I want the hand to do. I thought about having him holding a pen or maybe pulling on a mustache... still playing with it. Im thinking black background next.

Rebecca, idem means "the same"... (as in the same comment as the one I gave to Glenn)... got a bit carried away there by seeing all this lovely work...

Joel... those lines... wow. One possibility could be letting him point and look to the viewer, like he's picking his next victim and he's picking the viewer. Not sure if the effect would be interesting enough though... just an idea... just don't make him pick his nose ok? :D

Hi all! There are some amazing works already posted in this thread. I'm impressed by some the talent on these forums.

This is my first OFDW and I'm quite excited about it. I will be attempting to recreate Rubens's Two Satyrs. I've posted my preliminary drawing here. I still see a lot of things to fix - getting that exact expression of the front-facing Satyr is turning out to be a challenge for me. There are so many subtle shapes that compose that maniachal expression...

Anyway, hope to begin painting in the next day or so.

Man! So much has been added since last night. Hard to keep up.

zhuzhu I love the colors for the study. I think you got the impression of the colors of the original down. Can't wait to see more.

Zephyr I agree, the pose is very much Bougereau/Leighton. I like that you put the shading behind the figures' heads to help bring them out. I'm going to agree with chipmasque on the halo.

Rebeccak loving the progress. These were all on seperate sheets of paper before being combined digitally, right? That's a lot to keep track of.

Gord-MacDonald Good start with the blocking. And thanks for the blocking advice; I'll try to keep it in mind when I get started on it tonight.

DarkKnightBG Good start with the lines. Looks like everything is in order.

SaraD Woot!

'Kay, that's it for now. Gotta get to the day job. Next post will be the start of the actual project.

Deracus, good blocking in, looking forward to more. :)

I've drawn the upper right leg and used a copy of it for the upper left leg, which I think is working better than the prior one. All still very much WIP'ish, and will experiment digitally to get things to gel more cohesively, first with lines, but today I still want to work traditionally. I'll probably have to start looking at reference at this point to try to tie everything together:

Here are some color studies. I stayed with a red base color because, well let's face it... he's the Devil. I also chose to stay with the red theme for the background because I think hells a pretty warm place. I'll lighten up the background a bit before the final piece is done. - S

oooh he's looking really cute shanesart! If you aren't already planning on it I'd suggest for to you add some blues and purples in the shadows of the figure to lessen the flatness of everything, it would make the reds pop out even more in contrast :D

It's just a suggestion though!!

This thread is a serious visual treat.. great stuff! Here's a first colour 'wash' before I take it into painter and attempt to figure out the greatness of mind that Bouguereau and Leighton had for colour and light:

http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e241/arithonslove/colourtestwip.jpg


Rebecca: wow, looking very epic in that last post, love the falling dragon, he's great. I know the horse legs are temporary (look much better now!) but I have this urge to see them animated like Monty Python used to do with some of the master works, doing tha cancan or something equally silly.

Joel: Liking the loose look too, looking forward to seeing you push the colours. Have you considered any background yet?

Shanesart: lovely lovely stuff... big red monsters all round here, I should really have done one myself given the quote under my user name, but you guys are doing a great job instead. Great lighting on the figure and his horns too.

Razz: looking good with the greyscale, like the hand even at this early stage.

SaraD: Great to see you participating in these workshops again! And a cracking start, though you might want to add a few opposing colours into shadows on thigns like the wings and hair to give it some real power. But looking great!

Debbie: Love the cloth on that... it's something I glazed over last time, but there's a really great potential to push that to the kind of fantastic cloth and drapery people like Leighton had.

Anisha: thanks! And yours is coming out well thus far too... are those really watercolours? I'd have guessed acrylic if you've have asked, the way you're using them is really bold. A refreshing change... Nice variation in the skintone thus far though.

Asatira: Thanks, it was such a gorgeous photo, I couldn't resist, and I think you and Chipmasque are right on the halo... so changed! Works much better for giving her light hair too. Good call!

Deracus: nice start! As you're spotting things already, I'll add my 2 cents, the foot blob on the right looks a little large, and you might want to check that V-shape in the woman's shoulder to head as she's looking a little hunched on yours. You might find it helpful to look at the nagative shapes in the pictrue while you've got it at this stage, the shapes inbetween the object's you're painting.

Zhu: what can I say... :applause: :bowdown: you're a modern master. Good lordy, smelling salts please...

shanesart: very intriguing character, nice progress. think about going outside the reds in your hues, for contrast & depth, those shadows may get pretty flat up against all that saturation.

zephyri, the warm/cool split between your characters is a good reflection of the theme. the angel is nearly glowing! :)

rebecca O...M...G. looks like an epic a-borning. dragon claw detail is exquisite.

between laundry, shopping and all-around cyber-fatigue i only got a bit farther on, some perspective tweaks and finished blocking out the stadium space & field. i really need to get back into the figures so i can normalize the lighting all round.

anyone want to buy some ad space on the scoreboard or arena walls? (j/k)

Ok, here is where I'm at now - drew the hind legs of the dragon thingy and then played with the composition til I found something I liked - let me know what you think, all is in flux - oh I know the duplication of the legs means I need to reverse the thumbs etc., still very much in the pastiche stage, can tweak all of that as I go along:

Hey MechaHateChimp, that's a wonderful pose, it just feels so RIGHT!

OFDW Stage 5:

Finishing the angel and correcting proportions on the demons.

Every time you go away and come back you see a new proportion problem, it's like the eyes loses its measuring capability 15 seconds after starting a drawing.

Probably another 5 stages to go.

Thank you to all who have left me encouragement on my maiden attempt at oil painting. Someone, (I'm sorry to have forgotten the user name,) asked what size i'm working this detail on. I'm working on a piece of board backed, cotton canvas at 40 x 60 inches.

Anyway, the next morning after i posted my first WIP, I scrubbed it off. Seems as though I had forgotten the first rule of oil painting (so i've read anyway,) the drawing is the "backbone" of it. So without further ado, here is my update, a willow charcoal underdrawing. I'm beginning my grisalle underpainting today (hopefully.)

Rebecca - I am subscribed to it. I just checked. I didn't get anything. Oh well, I check it out enough. I just haven't been around a computer for the last few days.

Reb - your lines are so fluid. You are getting a lot of interesting ideas out of that. I cannot wait to see where it goes. (I wrote this like you were different people)

chipmasque - I like you take on the original. New sport?

zhuzhu - That is going to look beautiful. Modern day Eve.

ThePatches - I wish I could get started that way. I always get to much paint right off the start. I will try with this one.

vANON - Very impressive start. Always difficult for me to have a multitude of figures.

matwire - Yeah that right eye has been bugging me from the beginning. I finally just decided to leave it be until I figure it out and until them work on other parts. As far as the contrast goes, I'm only laying down the midtones right now ;)

zhuzhu - I'm loving the luminous colors!

Rebecca - That looks like a nightmare! Moreso now to me than it probably will when it's finished. Something about seeing all the parts all disconnected and rough makes it very unnerving.

Eduart Your Pan is coming along very well. The colors look so vibrant to me.

THANKS FOR THE GREAT FEEDBACK EVERYONE…REALLY HELPS
Sorry I haven’t been around very much lately, in the way of typing that is…This figure drawing class I’m taking twice a week, is kind of wearing me out,..in a nice way of course…just wish that it wasn’t so far from where I live. Oh well, can’t have everything…the class really makes it worth the trip though.
Just getting old I guess…don’t have the energy that I used to have. The mind is there, but the body just refuses to cooperate.
But anyway,…I have been admiring every ones work on here,…very inspiring, to say the least…and I can’t wait to see the finished results of all of them.

Wasn’t planning on turning that satyr into a demon, but what the hell
You just never know where you’ll end up, when you don’t know where you are going…unpredictable endings assured.
Same goes for the little doodle drawing of the man and woman that I have been playing with for a few days now,…you just never know.
Both are totally from imagination, no references used.
The wips for these can be seen on the last pages in my anatomy/ sketchbook tread, if you are interested..:)

shanesart, looking good! Would love to see you push this further, I think the bkgrd red is competing too much with the red of the figure and causing the depth to be hard to read.

Wow... there's just so much great work here... I don't even know where to start. (So I'll defer comments until after work!)

Anyway... an idea finally struck... in the middle of a meeting at work, so I sketched this thumbnail...

Loosely inspired by #18...

Haven't figured out all the details just yet, but I liked the shape of the giant horned figure... I see him cradling (or guesturing over) a sort of angelic flora-like figure. Like I said... not sure about all the details just yet.

SaraD, thank you. I like the update on yours. You paint very well.

Chipmasque, Your interpretation rocks! I love it.

Amanda, your shading is lovely. The cloth looks like satin.
Eduardo, Thank you.:) I used a grid with this image.

Sam, thank you. I worked on my image in Painter to help with the blending for the cloth but not sure if I've done enough. Love your update. Maybe lighten the devil girl's hair just a little and add a bit more red, not in an overpowering way but just a little more.

Rebecca, I like the new update. The image already tells a story. Nice play of light on the horse and dragon bodies. Just an idea would be to make the dragon's mouth open and enlarge the canvas so to show more of the dragon's wing on the left. I like dragon wings.:)

Shanesart..Wow, I really like your devil. Great job!

Glenn, nice start on your demon. Keep going!:)

Not sure where I'm going with this. I could go lighter or stay dramatic. I am not having fun with the pointing hand at all.

ThePatches
02-24-2007, 02:21 AM
Samanthie - TY! I really like the touch-ups that you've don in painter, really helps the figure "pop" more :3 Yeah, that hand is quite nnoying because it leads your eye off the "page" in a sense. Your eye just has nowhere to go from it except off the picture, which isn't good at all.

I think what makes you hand so distracting here is it's lightness. The brightness of the hand there really contrasts with the darkness of the background so that the eye is drawn right to it and not to all the lovely work on the drapery and figure. Perhaps if you lessened this contrast it would be less annoying?

Or perhaps use the "depth of field" thing you've got going on the with the swirly clouds and apply that to the hand as well? I dunno :)

**edit**

I think I'm finished for the night. Proably gonna play with some color palletes tommarrow. I'm thinking Carravagio-y....

That right eye.....

THANKS ..Samanthie.. ...I was thinking that with that pointing finger in your painting...The way DaVinci used that pointing finger in one of his paintings, and kept the viewer in the picture, was the symbol of the cross...blocked the viewers way from going directly out of the picture, and aimed the viewers eye back towards the pointers face.
Something along those lines might work in your painting, if you expand your canvas a little at the top, so you can creat more depth in that corner...maybe some clouds up there with a cross in them, or maybe even better, a raibow in the mist of a stormy cloud..might serve the same purpose..just a couple of thoughts on your composition ...FANTASTIC JOB ON THE FIGURE BY THE WAY...:applause:

Rebecca...THANKS..Always a pleasure doing these OFDW'S...:)
On your painting...did you look at that DaVINCI DRAWING of the lion and dragon fighting, that I mentioned earlier in this thread...?...Tighter swirl composition, leading into the center of ACTION..overlapping forms creating more depth and unity of forms in composition, creating a oneness...If that horse had a wild wind swept main and tail, with swirls in the hair, might echo the swirl composition you have going on now..just a passing thought..:)
Really moody piece...can't wait to see where you take it next...:thumbsup:

Vincent...Can't wait to see the wings on that female figure that is laying on the ground...GREAT job on her so far..:thumbsup:

Mark...I only see four feet...:scream: ....GREAT JOB ON THAT SO FAR...NICE ATMOSPHERE /AIR....:thumbsup:

REALLY GREAT WORK, BY EVERYONE ON HERE SO FAR,..JUST MY PERSONAL OPINION THOUGH...:eek: :)

I'm not sure how much time I'll have to complete this but it seemed to be a good way to spend a Saturday night!! Here's the first three stages spread over a couple of hours tonight. Photoshop CS2, Wacom Intuos 3.
Just blocking in the overall forms with a hard edged brush on a seperate layer above a black layer. Just by accident I used the brush at 100% opacity (set to pen pressure)- I usually have it set at 30% or less at this stage - but it seems to have worked well.

Glenn, hey! Great start there! The horns look really cool, and the expression is kinda funny now (not in a bad way). Just how his teeth seem to come out, hehe. Can't wait to see you do your magic with lighting :bounce:

Botched, make the horns bigger! Make 'em huge! OK, but seriously, it's just me, I like big horns, haha. Interested in how it will look after some more work done.

Chimpmasque..what can I say? Excellent job!

Rebecca, Great to see the update and the changes you made.:) It's nice to see more of the dragon. I hope the horse wins the battle.

Paul, Looks good so far. Nice to see your progress.

Hladekstepan Nice concept sketch. Looking forward to seeing it colored in.

Vincent, just lovely.

Amanda, Beautiful update. This is really going to look nice when it's finished. Her hair is great. Something about the top wing. I feel like maybe I should see more of it as it drops behind her cheek and shoulder.
Thanks so much for the helpful advice on the pointed hand. I will work on that hopefully tomorrow sometime.

Mark, it's really coming along. I know what you mean about feet and hands.:)

Glenn, Thanks. That is just what is needed I think too. I'll add a bit of clouds and God rays and see if that helps to develop the whole picture.
Your demon is so scary! He has quite a bit of character. I think it's his teeth that give him that, but overall he rocks. You are still working on him and seem to know what you are doing. I'll wait for the next update.

Luckydesign, You have a really nice painting. Good attention to many details..like the hands. You can always come back to it and finish it up later.:)

Killermachine, You have a good start. It looks like the character in the painting. Keep going.:)

shanesart - love the choice of sky. Makes all the blues very cohesive and make sense :)

vincent1 - You've done great to catch the lumenescence of the figure!

chipmasque - Love it Even though that "devil"'s crotch is just sceaming "look at me!" lol


Got the greyscale to a place I like it. I've figured out what looks so funny with the face, goign to fix it next. Started playing with some color. Going for a very old feeling. Hopefully I'm getting that in the color. Not perfect realism, but a very saturated and "painted" feeling...

Took liberty with the wings and the drapery to make a composition I like more than the original. Very minor ^^;

This is my first time really coloring like this >.> But I'm surprised at how well it all looks considering all te things I don't really get much practice at like drapery and feathers. When I get to a spot like this, it makes me think "hey! I migh be able to be one of those good painters!!"

Coming late to this one:

Great work everyone....a special mention to Rebecca, Zhu and Mecha....for some outstanding work!

Was planning on doing on going WIP shots over different posts, but because CG was out of action for some time tonight, looks like there are going to be a few in this one post. Lots of low opacity layers throughout this one.
Painter IX.
