I won't be livestreaming my studies anymore. Doing them on stream is more fun, but I can't focus properly. 

Move stills studies! Try guessing what movies are these. You might get the first one, but there is no way in hell you're gonna guess 2nd and 3rd

First one is Harry Potter (not sure which one)
Second and third are from 102 dalmatians


What (I think) these teach me:
-Composition
-Lighting
-Picking colours
-Backgrounds


Gas money

this is not a fucking pony

Trying out some new things

Colour studies/painting practice


Trying to make a study in 100 brush strokes. Hard as fuck. It showed me how inefficient I am with my brushwork. If you can ever call it that.

Video : Painting Elizabeth

LOOKS LIKE VIMEO BANNED ME. FUCK YOU VIMEO.

I'll have to find a new video host.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Turns out Cy-Art was recording my streams!

He compiled this video of my sketching and painting that Elizabeth picture:



Many thanks to Cy-Art :*

Unfortunately Cy-Art was not recording during some parts of the sketching and colouring process. But what's left sill merits a look IMO

Looks like I forgot to do the regular blog posts over the last 2 weeks!

I haven't been slacking off. In fact I have been doing a lot of in depth (ish) anatomy studies (very ish). Mostly refreshing, and strenghtening my knowledge of muscles and bones, as well as facial features. I finally figured out the dreaded forearms... Kinda.

Usualy when I try to study muscles and bones I just copy photos. This time I sat down with anatomy books and tried hammering into my stupid head some actual knowledge. I tried colour coding the muscle groups to help myself understand what's going on there better. It turs out to be a great learning method. At least for me. 



These breakdowns are really, really innacurate so don't take them so seriously. I am posting them just to show what I've been doing. If you want to learn muscles do your own breakdowns. It's really hard and intimidating but it helps you internalise this knowledge really quickly.

Here are the photo studies:


I think I made a nice bit of progress in the last 2 weeks.
