Lovely work, both Mal and Rebecca... Mal, is that penfold in your icon! God I love Dangermouse! *grins*

And you know, Rebecca, that piece really reminds me of the finesse Da Vinci had in some of his lesser known works, something about the shoulders and the oval of the face is very remiscent of that style of painting. It's looking lovely.

Thanks a lot Zeph - that means a lot coming from you. It's really great to have you participating in this Workshop.

I'm really sorry if I'm not able to reply to everyone who's commented here, but everyone's comments are appreciated. Thanks a lot.

Some updates:

Great work everyone!!

Zephyri - woah - you got far with just those colours blocked in like that

Neox - the eyes are stunning!

Rebeccak - I'll never comprehend how on earth you make it so smooth

I'm IN! yay - The lady in the blue dress for me... Starting with my usual messy self...

I can safely say that there's no future for me in forging paintings My it's hard and her 'monalisa-esque' smile is going to kill me, I can tell... I think her hand is too huge as well...

Very impressive work Rebeccak. It looks like a 3D model.

I've started on coloring the face. I'm working with a lot of them trying to find a set I am comfy with.

Neox - beatuiful eyes!
Mal-1 - so much emotion with so few brushstrokes. Impressive!
Becca - she almost look rendered in a 3D-program Looking forward to the colored/textured version.
Zeph - great colors! And lovely capture of the feeling in the original painting. Well done!

Everyone else! I haven´t had the time to be around for a while, and I am delighted to see so many new faces and excellent techniques and paintings!

Here´s my update. The face is to dull and non-vibrant, gonna try to fix that later, but now I´m on for the dress

Thanks for your kind advice aggie. Rebecca also mentioned to work in greyscale, but I am not sure if I understand. It is a way to get the values and contrasts right, but does it mean, that I should paint in black and white and then paint the colors over it? Or shall I take the greyscale image only as a reference to get my colors right? Sorry, for this stupid question, but this is only my 4th painted image and I never took painting lessons, so all this is new and kind of a mystery for me. And, well, my english is far away from being perfect. Britta

Great starts everyone !

Very inspiring !

I'm doing a 3D base mesh on XSI so I can sculpt in Zbrush the Algardi's Titan.
As a reference I tried to pose myself and photograph at the same stance with a heavy weight over the shoulders... (sure I will never show these photographs... ever... hahahha)...
And I found something bio-mechanical about it... (that pose is practically impossible anatomically speaking... am I wrong ?) the original model who posed for Algardi probably died or went forever to a bed (since they hadn't wheelchairs at that time) *lmao*
The only not so funny part about it is that I got a real pain on my back... rsrsrsrsrs
(I will survive... kids.. don't do this in home !!! )

Intervain - Are you doing something in 3D here ? * ~ curious face...*

Rebecca - great gray-scale teachings, always good to see it.

Keep going friends, I'll be around.

Cheers,

xiannc: yes you are right, maybe using the grid is limiting in some ways, but I am such a darn perfectionist that I couldn't bear not getting the drawing to look exactly like the original...I will try though, to do as some of you are, when I feel ready to do so! Yours is comiong along very nicely indeed!
shyamshiriram:that is the most beautiful line art I have ever seen...I get goosebumps when I think of what you will do next...
Zephyri:great to see you participating here, I'm sure you'll blow us all away with your skill. It already looks great. And thanks for the advice, I will definitely fix that. As for your question, they taught me the grid method when I was in art school...it was a bit different with traditional art (ah the joys of ctrl+z!!). In short, I do a bit of both of what you said, sometimes for a single line all I need is to determine the starting and the ending points and I do the rest without checking the preciscion, freehand I guess you could say. And for other more intricate parts, or things like the face features, I use the other method...zoom way in so I have just a few squares in my viewport and try to get those lines placed properly. Then when I'm done, I zoom back out and check the drawing in it's whole. I hope I explained that ok?...*phew*

So here is some very minor progress with some base colours...
