Hey guys,

I just wanted to thank everyone who participated in this Workshop - both those who contributed work and those who commented on others' work. As always, it's nice to see the variety here and I hope to see everyone participate in future Workshops.

To be alerted of the next Tutorial or Workshop, I recommend subscribing here:

Notification of New Open Figure Drawing Workshops / + TUTORIALS - SUBSCRIBE HERE!
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=379951

Please be advised that the next Workshop on the Anatomy Forum is:

Coming Soon - The Anatomy Lesson Series - Body Part 2: The Torso
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=401086

And that the OFDW will likely run after the conclusion of the above month long Workshop, as I've found that running two Workshops concurrently tends to cancel one or the other out.

I invite all to participate in the upcoming Workshop!

architectus,


Amazing amount of work you did in this Workshop, on a number of different pieces - hope you will come back to this eventually and work a bit more on the lower arms and hands of the giant. Great to have you aboard, I hope you will participate in future Workshops as well!


hauntedminds,

I really liked the aquatic sketch and hope that you continue to render it. Did you want to further render the water and the boat? I think the giant is looking quite good so far, would love to see you take this further in your own time.



Shaolin7,

I really like the way this started out and I think it would be better served scale wise with perhaps a small, silhouetted human figure near the giant - the dove doesn't read fully but when you pointed it out I think it's a cool idea. I think that a bit more detailing in Photoshop would really help this out. I look forward to seeing your participation in future Workshops as well!



Frejasphere,

I think you could really take your image a lot further digitally, and would love to see you explore that. I'm sorry, I wasn't sure by your last message if it was okay or not to do a paintover. I'm still happy to do so if you wish.



Aggie,

I'm not sure I like the reaper or the globe, but you've made good progress on this - just keep working on it, and continuing to post your updates to your Sketchbook Thread. Like I say, I don't understand the purpose of the reaper or the globe, I think you are best served by focusing on the central figure.


PureGhostGR,

You did a great job with this and I like the final outcome / cropping and framing. I think you might want in future pieces to try to make the figure a bit less plastic looking - but I also appreciate the styling and think you have done a nice job framing the figure. I hope to see your work in future Workshops.

...continued...

mazalo,

Good job with this in the amount of time allotted - I think you might want to render it further, but you've done a really nice job with the concept and really I think conveyed the concept the best. I think if pushed in terms of the rendering, this piece could really pop and have even more presence. Nice work!


Talaria,

Nice to see your work on this, it's another that I think well suited the concept. I hope also to see your work here in the future.



HladekStepan,

Nice to see you take crits in stride and to really use them to improve. Nicely done, I hope your next piece will push you even further.

Djampa,

Nice to see you back here!

NR43,

It's good to see you working out these figures and taking things at your own pace. Keep working to refine, studying master works I think is really the key. Keep working hard to improve.

...continued...

Daniel,

I think this turned out to be a striking composition, and while I think there might be a slightly different color combination, overall this is a nice sketch - can't wait to see your future work as well.

If I have missed anyone, it is unintentional.

Thanks to all for a great Workshop!

Cheers,

-Rebeccak

Well it's not midnight yet where I am = ). Lots of polishing left to do but I tried to cram in what I could, so here's my final submission (hope I can still get in Rebeccak!):



What a great workshop, excellent participation and lots of enthusiasm all around. Some really nice entries, too; thank you so much for running it Rebeccak!

Yes it would be fun to take things further in the digital world... will see - am still very much a traditional mediums artist at heart... with a lingering curiosity - and you quoted on my play-around altering values instead of the original that can be taken as a PUSH to digital or just hmmmm and so sorry you misunderstood me; paint-over is totally fine if you want to... I think I'm done with this one now though.
Am wondering where the giant awakening in the museum got to? hope to see him resurface

take care and cheers
a.

and Glenn
I love your EarthSpirit (you got in and finished ahead of all of us ) but just want to say again that she is wonderful!

Rebecca - Thanks. The reaper and globe just placed it into this OFDW. I wanted to be involved in it. I kinda impressed myself with the progress and my competitive spirit wanted me to get involved in the OFDW.

Frejasphere,

Heya, sorry for the misunderstanding!

Here is a paintover, bear in mind it's just a suggestion:



>>LARGE IMAGE LINK<<

No, unfortunately my giant never awoke.

Shaolin7,

Liking this update - would love to see you fully complete it in your own time as you can.

Aggie,

No worries! I understand.

Cheers,

-Rebeccak

Congratulations everyone. There are some really great works here. I've been watching this thread for a while , and I must say it's been interesting to see how each of you progressed. I wanted to participate but I just couldn't finish in time. I'm glad that you all were able to finish.

Talaria- I love your pencil work.

Rebeccak- I think it's great for you to be so involved with everyone during the process.

I wish I had time to comment on everyone, but I gotta run.


GOOD WORK EVERYONE.

Cool... it's fun to see things with different eyes, and it's a slightly strange pose; neck / head actually do follow the reference (I could show you the reference, but won't post it here ) nice elongation though

take care and cheers

Wiggin,

Thanks for the comments, and I hope you can participate in future Workshops.

Frejasphere,

Oh, np, these things are only suggestions. They're also fun for me to do, so I don't mind making suggestions, even if your piece is finished.

BTW, I am curious to know from everyone if they prefer for me to give critique (I'd rather not dominate critique, but would prefer for everyone to interact) or not - I try to gauge what I think people want, but sometimes I'm not sure. Please post to let me know if you prefer to have more or less critique in these Workshops from me - I'm happy to try to do either.

Cheers,

-Rebeccak

I didn't participate in this workshop, but I always like that you are active in critique.
