24? Maybe. Is it OK to edit my post to add new ones as I complete them? I was going to put like 6 in a single post (x4 = 24). That's the plan anyway.

Nah, just keep posting new posts - otherwise no one will see your new work. Plus, half the fun is having your email box fill up with subscriptions.

Certainly not perfect, but an experiment in style:



Here's a wee bit 'o a gif for the last image:

Rebecca - OK, you'll get the big images then. That last one of yours is nice. Good shapes through the fingers and knuckles. I didn't care much for the earlier ones because of the heavy texture overlays you're using. Looks like you're trying to hide something there. You shouldn't have to. I've seen your work.

anandpg - Here's another nice one. Good construction lines and build of the shapes.

Kirt, you're right, though I swear I do love textures for textures' sake.

Here's a bit of a start going in the opposite direction, dialed down the textures and am just going for a KISS approach. Obviously very WIP, want to spend more time on this one than the others:

Hi windroll,

Well it doesn't look rusty at all! It looks more stony.. :P Very nice work, though one little thing, I think the shadows are a little too dark. It makes the middle finger looks weird.

Great workshop! Great show of hands! Though my hands aren’t idle at the moment, I think I can find some time to draw a few sets of digits soon.

Along with what Rebecca mentioned, building up an image from dark to light enhances the visual effect of volume and depth, in general.

Wonderfull entries guys !!! I will join

So i got this first hand by Michelangelo.I will work grayscales,still not going in color.

Anyways i did posterize to the first hand and i see that the leg and the lower arm have greenish tones.The hand has yellowish tones with a bit of reds and blues,but very litle.

- How was that sculpture lighted? I mean is the green and yelow thing on purpose? Because the hand here is of more importance it has warm color and the not so important leg and forearm have greensih tone which is background tone.

Hi,
here goes my first entry, done in less time than 2 hours, you know I tried to focus, and think about it like about study not a copy, I used my own hand to feel the bones, so it's a little different than original painting.

Nice entries everybody!

21.

Lorenzo Bartolini
Oil on canvas, 1820

Great studies all - good quality. Looking forward to this workshop.

I jumped right in and rendered without starting with a sketch - It kind of shows:( More sketching next time.

Great to see everyone's posts! Will post comments soon, after my class. There's definitely some good stuff here and it will be exciting to see how people improve over the course of this Workshop. I definitely need the practice!
