This is my first post here. I normally only sneak peeks in here or eles I would be tempted to do this instead of my homework... cleaning my apartment... laundry... Anyhow I had some extra time and I'd thought i'd get some opinions on my effort.
Thanks in advance

Welcome aboard!

I think you've got a good start here! However, your life will be made easier if you start from a mid~gray, and work up toward lights and down toward darks, rather than starting w/ a white background.

The following thread might be useful:

wow, you guys are just too fast :-)
Great work everybody.. Keep up, but hey, you can slow down a bit - that is some killer tempo for the poor ordinary non-artistic bastards like me ..
hehe, just kidding, although I really can't possibly catch up with you anytime soon..
Unfortunatelly I can spare only an hour a day or so for painting and my progress will be much slower than the rest of you..
My internet connection went dead yesterday, so I'm posting this from the office..
Done with the sky, there'll be some minor adjustments later on, of course..
I've also done some basic color blocking, but it still looks pretty rough, so I'm not posting it at this point.. Tonight hopefully, If I can get hold of my computer for a couple of hours..

Heehee, thanks for the link. I was thinking "this is easier on newsprint" and now I know why.

As for about me. I'm a full time Graphics Design major at Art Institue Las Vegas, as well as holding down a fulltime boring job. (I don't reccommend doing that btw :curious I started out wanting to be a comic book illustrator, which lead me life drawing. I discovered that there is something wonderful about the human form. I've developed the semi-bad habit of drawing figures out of my head rather than looking at a model. It's nice to be able to get back into life drawing.

Sure it is... but don't go to New York...

I am still busy with the animatic Micro challenge - it turns out I am the only participant so it will be an easy first place......

Anyway, I was looking forward to that challenge so I will finish it and start Bougereau-ing next week. I am glad I saw someone who chose the Satyr/Nymph piece.

Does anyone know something about the story background of this piece? I mean, why the heck would anyone not go where they want you to go?

Step 1

Stole some time (maybe fifteen minutes) to start this "amazing" piece. I chose to begin by laying down some of the main masses with no base drawing (this is my standard method of painting). At this stage colours and values are quite off but I find this approach useful to train my eye to see the direction I should go for (in terms of color and luminosity). Done in photoshop using the "Linda fav" variant that can be found in Goro's brushes collection.

Interesting approach erilaz, it gives good readability to the scene. What kind of reasons led (if there are) you to the choice of that values ?

Its quite interesting to see the various methods employed by artists here start their pieces.
