Thanks Lemog .
I'm just gonna correct the colors as I go along, ad this point I still have to touch every single part of the image again so there are lots of opportunities to fix them.

The blending does somehow seem to help a bit, it makes the colors look a bit more uniform then when they lay hard-edged against one another.

looking forward to see your contribution to this workshop..

*he he* thanks a lot... but don't expect me to keep up that pace, I can only work fast in the beginning once I have to refine anything it takes me ages .

Okay and now for an update:

Looking great, David! The balance is already well~established, and your proportions look great. I think it's funny that you seem to like to refine the hands first...most people leave them to the last.

Keep up the good work!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

hmm cant realy answer for what other people do ... the hand just drew a lot of attention to itself, so it felt natural to paint it in there early in the process, it seemed logical to me *hehe*.

I think I posted this in the wrong thread this morning

This is my first post for the OFDW. Its around a 20 minute sketch done in PS + Wacom. I will continue with it in PS, but I think I will do future figure drawings in pencil since I still dont feel I have as much control with the tablet as I do with pencil.

Mecha,

Great to see you here! No worries, we're doing a new thing now, where we post the same Reference images in the 15 Minute Sketchathon Reference thread as for the OFDWs ~ that way, people can start out doing a quick sketch if they like in the 15 MS thread, and then mosey on down to the OFDWs to refine their pieces to a higher degree. So, you did things exactly right.

All media are welcome in the OFDWs, and in fact, it's funny, as it the OFDWs have become more about digital painting than drawing (it seems the 15 MS is more drawing~oriented) but both Traditional / Digital Drawing / Painting is most certainly welcome in both threads! In fact, we had one person (Stahlberg) pose a 3D model for the first OFDW, so that should give you some idea of our flexibility.

Look forward to your continued partication!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

SaraD,

I like your second piece better ~ though I'm sure the first would have developed just fine.

Welcome aboard, Elsie! Look forward to seeing your work!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hi Rebecca and Everyone
Here is my latest experiment adventure. Using Painter 8 oil brushes and colored spotlights that act like a tint. Going to try on this one to use Caravaggio's method of making parts of the figure that are closest to the viewer crisp and clear and the parts that are further away from viewer soft and receding into the darkness of the surrounding colors. He used this method on every form of the body. From major forms all the way down to the fingertips.
Starting to get the lighting the way I like it now.
Next step will be to go back into figure with color to bring out lights and shadows.
And refine curves outside and inside of figure.
By the way everybody's work looks like it is off to a great start.
Nice to see all the different styles happening.
Comments opinions and criticisms by anyone and everyone are always welcome, needed, and appreciated.
Glenn

Quick Update. Just starting establish the values on this one. I am hoping to actually finish this one in color.
