Thanks Rebecca

Well, finally got it encoded properly. I set up both a low and high bandwidth file.. they are both pretty clean but the high bandwidth one makes it easier to see what I'm doing. This is a two hour video condensed into 12 minutes. Have a peek and let me know what you all think! - J

MHC OFDW018 video tut - low bandwidth (13 MB .mov)

MHC OFDW018 video tut - high bandwidth (40 MB .mov)

Joel! That is awesome! Additionally, I have some good news that I will email you about.

One thing I do have to say ~ I do think it's better to eyeball colors rather than to select from the original source. I really do feel strongly that this teaches you much more in the way of choosing and combining colors.

That being said, I am really pleased that you put so much effort into making this and making it available to us ~ please feel free to create a separate Tutorial Thread here on the Tutorials and Workshops forum, and to title it:

TUTORIAL - *what it's about* - by *your name / username*

Once you've done that I'll add your Tutorial to the notifications thread so that people might be made aware of your efforts.

Thanks a lot Joel! You rock!

Cheers,

~Rk

Word!

Wont argue with you there. I'm usually pretty good at choosing colors when doing personal work but if its a figure study, I'm one lazy bastard! Definitely need to kick my butt in gear... I'll give it a shot in the next OFDW!

No sweat on the tutorial I had fun doing it but theres no need to post it in the tutorial section. This was more to see if I could actually pull it off and the beginning of what I hope to be a video tutorial section on my site. I was just happy that it came out ok and that I didnt screw things up! I'm telling you, video editing/encoding is a whole 'nother monster.

LOL ~ no problem. I'll just post a link to the specific post here.

EDIT: Done ~ I've added a link to your post containing the Video Tutorial here:

I hope you don't mind, I've edited your post with the video links by adding the image, so that people would know what the Tutorial was about.

Thanks again!

I thought this painting was so fun to study and a real amazing painting just to view. I think the painting took me about four hours or so. I was constantly pulled away from the computer for something or another. So I had to refocus my thoughts when I got back to working on the piece, but I think right now Iíll go paint a lighthouse or something. Of course critiques are welcome.

Flydesign,

Hey there, nice to see your piece. A few comments might be that the overall piece seems a bit undersaturated. I think you need a broader range of darks and lights. Also, I think the overall figure is a bit squashed - which is frankly an easy fix if you simply scale the figure a bit vertically. Overall I think this is a good basis for a more finished painting. I think that you could push it much further if you wished to do so.

Cheers,

-Rebeccak

Big thanks on your reply Rebeccak! I agree that the figure was a little squashed, the orginal piece has better perspective of the figure for some reason. I posted the piece on photobucket and notice the change. I don't no if it's something I did or how the piece was posted, but down the line it's an easy fix with the transform tool. Good tip on the colors, I'll keep that in mind for the next piece I post.
