Thought I might just start my own thread, now.
who am I?
Murat Kayi, 31, aspiring to become a professional writer, I do this just for fun!
for those who can understand German, take a look at my website!
what’s my goal?
to become a good figurative artist. Nothing less, nothing more.
what’s my plan?
- to take part in the OFDWs
- to use my ressources, copy them, study them, e.g.: Loomis, Hogarth, everything online, Master Draughtsmen series
- to do master copies
- to do sketches from imagination - ultimately I want to draw and paint figures and environments which have not existed until I created them. Gotta start someday, so why not right away?
- to do head, head feature, arm, hand and feet studies in particular from reference
To encourage everyone out there who thinks his/her stuff is crappy… take a look at my first OFDW007 attempt - it can’t get any crappier than that now, can it? Also, note the progress from OFDW to OFDW - these images clearly explain why I love this forum and its forumites so much, especially the ubiquitious forum leader: because it made me become better!
crap study from hell OFDW007:
the decisive hint from Rebecca in the same OFDW: value constitutes form! Do greyscale!
done in artrage
more and new stuff later today… gotta fetch my little one from the kindergarten… see you all soon!
