ericyeo,

Great start! I love that you're getting bold with color ~ it means you're getting confident with it.

Can't wait to see your update!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Here's an update, I rejected colour for now due to my inabillity to employ it to any sort of basic standard>> switched to greyscale.

I quite like the painterliness of both of these...may I ask, which paint package are you using?

Cheers,

Nothing fancy. The Gimp actually - I can't even afford photoshop !

dogyears,

No worries! Have you ever tried ArtRage?

http://www.ambientdesign.com/artrage.html

It's a free downloadable app that's really great for painting also. I've used it just a bit ~ Mr. Mu uses it and really likes it. A friend of mine just raves about it.

You might want to check it out if you get the chance!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Actually I have, I'm not a big fan really. It's awesome software, but a tad too realistic ... to be honestl I don't really go out of the way to make my paintings painterly (I would actually like a more photorealistic style), but they just turn out that way somehow. Any tips ?

Hmm, I'm not familiar with Gimp, but generally speaking I would say to limit your pallette initially to only a few colors ~ paint swatches on your canvas, and sample them repeatedly. Choose a light / highlight, a midtone, and a dark ~ and stick with that limited pallette. You could use a light pink, a medium orange~brown, and a dark brown, for example, and start to build the figure that way. Don't try to overcomplicate things. It's not color that's going to create form, it's VALUE. So focus on that and not on color.

Also, now that you've got a nice foundation laid, you might just try using smaller brushes to get more detail and to refine the figure. Concentrate on what matters the most ~ and work from large to small as you paint. Don't go after the eyes first, but the eye sockets, and the general shapes of the head.

After that point, it's just a matter of continually refining your shape and value placements.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak
