Thanks Amy and Rebecca for commenting on my Boston Sunset painting. Unbelievably beautiful sunsets here. Everyone has a different color and mood. Great view.

Rebecca:
Great seeing your stuff on here. Am really enjoying it. Quitting your day job? lol A definite step in the right direction. Can't talk too much, just want to say that everybody's stuff looks great and is a real inspiration for me to do better with my own. Thanks everyone for sharing.

Here is a piece. An old black and white ball point pen drawing actual size I did a few years ago. Put it into Painter this year and experimented with it. I call it "Goodnight", it depicts the veil of night being pulled over the sun. And the sun being pushed into darkness. With old man time sitting on his throne with the earth at his side ovelooking and overseeing the universe and its eternal cycles and rhythms.
Hope you enjoy.
Take care and have a great day (and night)
Glenn

I don't know about my 'best', but I think these images are alright (and evocative):

woodyradica -> hey man, I don't why, your picture make think to a Frederick Catherwood drawing... call "Well at Bolonchen"... the form certainly, cause colors are very differents. More actual
I see that you live in Guildford, I came in this city few years ago, my sister to keep of 2 children during the holidays, sympatic country

Spirit Dreamer -> You make pictures with double effects... In first, we watching with our eyes... and after, it's the mind which watching. Nice experimentation !


Gord MacDonald -> Without doubt for me, the first picture, "evilForce" is the best... is it the evil inside us ?


In find this one (always of the same movie...)... that make think to a lot of different things too...
(it's the auditory canal, with the tympanum)

Very interesting images Lemog, and also thanks for your comment on mine.

Really enjoyed your collage images and paintings Rebecca and the colors in your landscapes. Love the blue one.

Great sketchs Gord. Definately evocative.

Very nice image Spirit Dreamer, reminds me of an ancient artifact.

Lovely image Swoop, very peaceful.


I have looked at every image in this thread and enjoyed all of them.

Oh, awesome, guys! I go away for a few hours, and come back to find all this cool artwork!!!

Spirit Dreamer,

Cool piece, I like the colors! Though I think you could offset some of the wildly saturated hues with some desaturated ones here and there ~ the effect of so much saturation is a bit overwhelming, almost psychadelic! Thanks for posting!

Lemog,

Great to see more of your work! And I like your comments, you always have something interesting to say and a very charming way of putting things!

I think your image looks a bit like an eye...it would be cool to see you manipulate this image even further in PS, perhaps softening some edges and such...the texture, of course, is awesome!!

Gord MacDonald,

WOW, this is unlike any of the other work of yours I've seen! I really like the PS experiments, particularly the first and the third from last one. I also really like the drawings, those are so cool! I think, however, the image of the man with the bagpipes needs a lot of work ~ I think it's less interesting than your drawings, which I really think are great!

Samanthie,

Thanks for your comments!

It's great to see such variety here, guys!

jm,

Would you mind terribly emailing your image to me? I don't why this is, but I can never see your images from home! Wierdness! At any rate, I would feel bad not being able to comment on this, so my email (also listed on my website) is: rebeccak4@gmail.com.

Thanks!

~Rebeccak

Samanthie - thanks for the comments!


RebbecaK - thanks for the feedback. I have a kazillion of these PS experiments (no kidding!). The drawings and piper were preliminaries for my master servant entry (unfinished ). The image of the piper was inspired by the story behind a piobreachd (english: pibroch) - classical bagpipe music (one of my passions). I quite like the mood, and may develop it into a full blown image at some time - at the moment its just a sketch.

JM - you are doing a good job on your WIP. your approach seems to be straight modeling - the farther away from the viewer, the darker the tone.

What you are doing is analogous to a sculptor building up a mass (Kimon Nicholades discusses this approch in 'the natural way to draw' ), shape the large general mass - adding detail as you go. The process over time is like an object coming out of the fog - you see the large form first, and as the form gets closer, details emerge - ever so slowly. As you elaborate on the form, adding detail, be particularly attentive that what you add is correctly positioned in relation to the existing form, and that the relative tone of the new detail is correct.

The large masses which are further back in the picture will be darker overall, than larger forms which are closer in the picture will be lighter. Using the sculptor analogy, when pushing into the mass (ex: eye sockets) the tone should get darker,when you build up mass (ex: the nose) the form should lighten. The tonality of details should fall into the tonal range of the larger forms that those details are part of.


Gord

ok another - originally posted on the finished 2d forum - this one got no response - I liked it, but others found it pretentious.

The word 'instinct' was intended to be an intregal part of the image - a shadow - a point of convergance between the world of the ant, and the world of the viewer.

pencil on paper enhanced with PS

Thanks for the comments Gord. I'm going to try and work on this one untill I feel more content with it, looking at it now makes my eyes water. It's hideous, lol.
