MLE Dec 10th, 2010 11:48 PM

Uh, okay. In the future, post stuff like that in the YouTube thread in General Blabber, okay?

I went to an awesome museum drilled into a mountain by an eccentric millionaire.

Ignoring the obvious rough edges of a work in progress, of course

make it look more like an apple


MLE Apr 29th, 2011 02:22 AM

Pop the lights and the dark more. The more contrast you have versus the picture, the more hyper-real it will look. If there's a way to have the sharp edge of the apple stay and have the other side of the color fade to the next, you might want to think about doing that. You should also add a basic shadow at the bottom so it's not floating in midair.

Once that's done, I'm not sure if I'd even have any other critiques. You're already very accurate in your work, and it just needs a few minor tweaks to make it look real.

I'm starting to work on collages and other random craft projects. I'll be posting them once I get my scanner up.

I agree, about upping contrast on the apple. When you do that, the saturation is generally also pushed up though, so you might want to dial that down. The specular highlights look really good. Is this being done on a wacom tablet?

Grislygus May 11th, 2011 02:43 PM

no. touchpad.

Pram Maven May 12th, 2011 08:28 PM

Looks like you get some good control with one. I use a mouse for everything graphical and it's not very comfortable. Sometimes an entire folder of images has to have a rig painted out or cracks smoothed. That's incentive for getting it right in-camera. Are you going to post the updated version?

Fathom Zero May 14th, 2011 08:15 PM

this forum makes me want to art so bad but i cannot art and the only art i can do is photography and no one gives a fuck about photography

MLE May 15th, 2011 12:54 PM

You know my stance on that, buddy.

Art Nouveau, mfkrs

I love shit like that
Edit: kinda similar

I have synesthesia, mostly cross-wired numbers and colors, and I have the vague idea to paint a "synesthesia" series on smallish canvases. Various numbers in various fonts in the colors they are in my head.

I usually paint in acrylic but I think maybe acrylic won't make me happy with these. I've hated oils in the past but may have to go back to them.

Anyway, is this a stupid idea, do you think?

Fathom Zero Jun 27th, 2011 10:32 PM

It's extremely personal, whether that's good or bad.

Kitsa Jun 27th, 2011 10:35 PM

Well, in personal terms I think it makes all the difference as to whether I can muster any art or not. If everything just was what it was, I'd have no incentive to create.

For some reason, I am itching to paint a dark, bluish kelly-green 9. And then a red-orange 5.

Fathom Zero Jun 27th, 2011 10:53 PM

I didn't mean personal things are bad - just that the meaning behind it is such that other people couldn't possibly appreciate it as much as you can. But go for it. I always like to see people doing things.

Shrubfest Jun 28th, 2011 05:35 AM

I'd be interested to see that. If you could get the colours just right, it would be a prefect glimpse inside your brain.

Shrubfest Jul 1st, 2011 02:42 PM

Soo, I've decided to learn to draw properly before I start classes again, as it was really holding me back and damaging my confidence. I'm working through a book called 'Drawing on the right side of the brain' by Betty Edwards. So far, it seems to be good, but I have yet to get to anything concrete.

Does anyone have hints/tips/advice/books to help me out? Much appreciated.

Grislygus Jul 2nd, 2011 04:01 AM

buy a few thick pads of 18 x 24 newsprint and do lots and lots of scribble gestures, focusing on being as fast and wild as you possibly can. fill up an entire thing of it, with multiple drawings on each page. Make damn sure you draw from life. It's important to have fun and just concentrate on speed, looseness, and drawing large. You should be able to have a reasonably detailed gesture completed in a minute's time. Then bust out a sketchbook and draw every day. don't worry about making "good" drawings, just keep focusing on speed, drawing with your arm as opposed to your wrist, while slowly and surely getting more accurate over time through repetition. You have to commit to it, though. it's like weightlifting, it only works if you're committed

Chojin, I dunno if you read this thread or anything, but didn't you say somewhere at one point that the AutoCAD suite is available for free to students?

Why is this important?
