# Sketcharama

 02 February 2011 TedNindo Lord of the posts portfolio Roman Fuhrer Hamburg, DE Sketcharama Hey everybody, this thread is for everybody to join in and do some painting exercise to hone their skills and get better at what we love to do. This week we started with breaking down images into their different values. The idea behind it is to study the values of different colors with the goal to get better control over values. Since right values are the basis of every form there is this seems as one of the fundamentals. __________________ ------- Last edited by TedNindo : 02 February 2011 at 04:11 PM. share quote

 02 February 2011 TedNindo Lord of the posts portfolio Roman Fuhrer Hamburg, DE Ok, for this image I tried to keep it rather simple. Instead of going for details I tried to hit divide the values into categries and name them before I start with the exercise. Thats what the numbers are for. __________________ ------- share quote
 02 February 2011 TedNindo Lord of the posts portfolio Roman Fuhrer Hamburg, DE Ok with this one I am up to date again. Putting the numbers in seemd easy first but I recognized that I was wrong in a lot of places while I painted in the values. __________________ ------- share quote
 02 February 2011 Ismilealot New Member   portfolio Nguyen Anh Duc Yager Development Berlin, Germany Hey great! Good that we started this! I'm sure we will get a lot out of those excersises over time. For todays practice I used 100% opacity and a hard round brush. Cheers share quote
 02 February 2011 TedNindo Lord of the posts portfolio Roman Fuhrer Hamburg, DE Ok for the last day of the week we try to use what we've learnd the 4 previous days. The idea is to do a piece with just values. No colors. To keep it simple you might try to use just as few values. The topic for this friday is: Narrow Escape __________________ ------- Last edited by TedNindo : 02 February 2011 at 11:30 AM. share quote

 03 March 2011 Ismilealot New Member   portfolio Nguyen Anh Duc Yager Development Berlin, Germany @tednindo Nice Study mate. Good improvement. I think you can push the value in the foreground. I think the shadow of the plants closes to the viewer could be more darker. Darker then the shadows of the mountain to the right i would say. Keep in mind the further the object the less contrast the objects have. I tried a quick value sketch from imagination for the theme on friday. looking forward for some critique as well. Cheers. share quote
