Hehe, very funny ~ it's okay, because sometimes I get my own name wrong... ~ it's a Korean blonde thing.

Thumbs up

You're welcome, Andyonahill. My pleasure. I quite enjoy seeing the resulting works. I find it very rewarding.

I like where you're going, Zarracin. It's looking very nice. Although I don't draw, I'm not surprised that the left leg would be challenging, basically coming straight out like it is. I'm a little surprised to hear that you especially liked the first photo, as I'll admit that when I did them initially (about a year ago now), I nearly scrapped that one. Often interesting how that all turns out.

Wow, Per! That's quite emotionally impactful...it reminds me quite favorably of the type of experimental collage work I did in one particularly great class where we were encouraged to really mix media / etc. ~ probably one of the best classes I've had. It's really cool to see this translated in digital terms. The body is definitely really solid, I only think the face needs a bit of refinement / to make it a bit more solid and dimensional. Great piece!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hi Rebecca and Everyone
Here is my latest experiment adventure. Using Painter 8 oil brushes and colored spotlights that act like a tint. Going to try on this one to use Caravaggio's method of making parts of the figure that are closest to the viewer crisp and clear and the parts that are further away from viewer soft and receding into the darkness of the surrounding colors. He used this method on every form of the body. From major forms all the way down to the fingertips.
Starting to get the lighting the way I like it now.
Next step will be to go back into figure with color to bring out lights and shadows.
And refine curves outside and inside of figure.
By the way everybody's work looks like it is off to a great start.
Nice to see all the different styles happening.
Comments opinions and criticisms by anyone and everyone are always welcome, needed, and appreciated.
Glenn
