Good Morning,

@Digital Sol
I do not see where there is any problem for you. It looks fantastic to me. Go on... hehooo !

@da Winky
Don't panic, I start fast and furious but there'll be a point of "time is running through my hands", rofl... actually I put the 3 layers together, funny mistake cause I forgot to save the pic before.

@Rebeccak
I like the way you construct the figures a lot. For me there is the problem (or fear) that the picture would be too blurry. How do you manage this?

It is an exciting adventure to see the different ways you all start and how the proceedure goes on.

Wow really nice work guys, fast progress.

My attempt, just blocking stuff in, trying to get things in right places.
Rebecca how do you get your work so shiny?

Sabie,
Hey there, can't wait to have you join in!

Elliepower,

Heh, thanks! I think I'm the only person who likes blur in a picture but I just personally don't like too much sharpness...I seem to be in the minority, but it's just the way I am. If you use a smaller brush size set to a low opacity and flow, you can still manage to get sharp edges. And I alternate quite a bit between varying brush softness / hardness using the Shift + [ and Shift + ] shortcuts, where Shift + [ makes the brush softer, and Shift + ] makes the brush harder.

Jack,

Great to see your start here! Shiny? Lol. I think the painting has a somewhat shimmering appearance mainly due to the value relationships. Once you start to blend, and tweak value relationships in a subtle way, it becomes almost a process of working with 2D clay ~ sort of pushing forms back with darker values, and bringing forms forward with lighter values. It's also key to use alternately softer and harder edges (though I'm obviously partial to softer edges) , the manipulation of edges is a big factor in determining what stands out to the viewer, and what recedes. Hope this makes sense.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hi,

now, here is my next step. It begins to get boring... and I loose some of my patience.

Hmpf. This Reference is really a big one. The Original is about 3 m wide? Horrible job!



LG,
Ellie

That's looking great Elliepower, I think your version's color palette is great, even if not is the copy from caravaggio's, now that I'm about paint the meals at the table Im getting bored too, but great work for u

You're making awesome paintings, love to see the progresses
So sorry i couldn't finish the last one, and I don't think I'll have the time also for this.
So sorry, because the ole murderer is my favourite painter.
Keep it up . everyone, you're making masterpieces on a masterpiece!

I thought I'd join in too

If I was starting again, I think I'd do this slightly differently. I'm using a grid on both images and eyeballing to try and get things in the right proportions, using only vaguely the right colours. Next step will be switching the grids off and working more on the figures as wholes.
