I started using the silhouette method during Rebecca's first course workshop, as it really helps me to get a sense of the form first, similar to Anthony Ryder's method, but with a whole shape instead of just a line.
The values were based on some of the darkest portions of each individual subject. I like to start dark and work in the values from dark to light, so I keep my shadows from the start.
As to the gradient background, it helps to bring out the forms solidly while you work, plus if you look at the image, you can see a soft gradient of dark to light from the top to the bottom.
I'm going to be painting this all black and white, at least for starters. I need to work on my values.

I've been really busy lately so I haven't even had time to finish OFDW12, but I am still going to try to find time for this. I can always go back and finish OFDW12 later. BTW Rebecca, have I totally missed OFDW13 or are you superstitious?

Gosh! Another Bouguereau started?! Lots of nice work here already and some really interesting approaches.
Enrico -
love that painterly start, it's going to be real interesting to see where you take it.
Sabrina - you seem so totally comfortable with this already, I'm not surprised if you very soon is as good with 2d as 3d!
Mona - Heja! So cool to see you in this one, and a really nice start - looking forward to see what you come up with!
Martin - That silhouette start could be the beginning of something really cool. Like it!

And a group cheer for the rest of you, all really interesting starts for this

Hey everyone , just woke up and checked out the thread , I really like everyones start , I am finding it hard to really do anything criting at this point because most are still in the sketch phase

erilaz- I am vey interested in you approch here and I will be looking to see the progresss closely.

I noticed some people are giving a little background of thereselves so I think i will do the same since I don't think anyone on cgtalk really knows anything about be.

Pretty much I am a guy from the east coast , canada and I have been drawing pretty much my whole life. I have never had any formal training (thats why crits mean so much to me) I havent really had a job in the cg or art business at all , I have been a cook for the last 2 years. A few years ago I was doing portraits for local people and painted a few surf boards. And im learning 3D modeling now. And thats pretty much it haha

Keep the sketches coming everyone

Matellis,

Thanks for that! My apologies, I'm not as attentive as I'd like to be to this OFDW due to the CGWorkshop......but I'm happy to know a bit more about you, it's much better than just knowing people through their usernames, lol!

I look forward to your participation here and hope you get a lot out of it ~ and also that you'll participate in future OFDWs with us!

Cheers,

~Rebeccaka

Hey great work so far. peoples are coming along nicely.
I think I'll do the goat one,

the goat one is pretty funny, hes all like "no ladies, dont all 7 make love to me! I'm a goat man!" Seriously, hes half goat, is he ever gonna be luckier in his life. No.

This Will B. Cat is a mad ass dope painter.

Queensoul thanks for the link about Bouggie. I only got about halfway thru it but interesting stuff so far. Have to finish reading the rest tonight after work

Great work everybody..
It'll be hard to keep up with you, that piece of junk under my desk is playing tricks on me, but I have no intentions of giving up..
It needed more than 15 minutes to save my file ..
Photoshop's eating resources like crazy, not that I have plenty of it. 700Mhz AMD processor and 256 RAM make it pretty damn hard to handle those huge files ..
Gotta buy a new computer - It's about time..
Oh, and I'm sorry I've been posting such large images in my previous posts, just read the rules and found out my pictures should be 800x... at the most. I appologise to all of you for that..
Won't happen again..
anyway, my next image - fixed the figure a little and started some rough color blocking just to get the feeling of it..
See you all later, I'm calling it a night..
