Sketchbook Thread of Vic Monty

I went away for some training for a year. I've come back to pick up where I left off. I miss this place and all it's contributors.

My old thread...
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthr...07&page=7&pp=15

Let's see.

Well, a year ago, I left after beginning a new painting. It started as an anatomical/photo study. Then I got ahead of myself.

Photo ref courtesy characterdesigns.com


No planning on my part lead me to a dead end. Since I didn't plan on an actual composition, or costumes I'm left now with a fixed comp and no reference photos. I got excited, what can I say.

My question to you folks is should I leave as is and call it a study or should I pursue my inspirations? I suppose it's all dependent on my skill? I feel challenged to go further but I accept it. Then again, I've learned so much so far and would call this a success for my personal growth.

I guess my real question would be how have you folks dealt with these sorts of situations? Any good stories or lessons learned?


c&c please. Feel free to paint over and show. Thank you.

gray

going to grayscale. one thing at a time I guess. It makes more sense and it's less complicated for me at this stage. one step at a time right? but the colors!

see how long I avoid her hair...

I was thinking of adding visible energy either from his right hand or her body. I wasn't sure if it would be an extraction or placement of something from the man. i have thoughts of symbols that i would like to use, but not sure how to incorporate them. perhaps as tattoos or body/ceremonial paint.

that's what i mean when trying to take this from a study to imaginative piece. so limited right now on my abilities it's frustrating.

a thought i've been applying to my job that i can apply to art or any endeavor is "become brilliant at the basics".

I know where I want to be as an artist but it's going to take a long time.

Trying color. I did an overlay to start. Not too sure how the layer modes work yet so I'll see what happens.
