Day 12: Shattered.
Decades of AI research, destroyed in minutes by a natural disaster of magnitude no one could have foreseen. Maybe it was a sign from God.

Study I did to focus on capturing a likeness. I did a lot of flipping between the two images to see changes that needed to be made, and spent way too much time trying to make it perfect. Probably going to challenge myself next time to not do ANY flipping between the painting and source image, forcing me to look long and hard to figure out what makes the person look the way they do.

I made a few value thumbnails as concept art for a game I am working on in college. The goal was to depict some ideas for a department store level that is sort of broken up and twisted, more like a department store you would see in a dream. Definitely learned I have some work to do with environment sketches, because I am not too proud about how these turned out.

Alright I'm continuing my environment studies, but approaching it a little differently this time. Since I wasn't happy with my level design thumbnails I posted a bit ago, I want to work on breaking down environments into basic shapes of value and color that come together to make a painting that reads well from a distance, and not worry about the details of each form. For that reason, I'm working on a small canvas, keeping zoomed out, and using hard brushes as much as possible. Hopefully these studies will help me quickly block out environments of my own creation that read really well just using basic shapes.

Finally finished tap challenge 80! Trying to be a little more painterly with my edges, but I'm pretty inexperienced with that style. I feel a style study coming on.

Alright time to post three months of work lol.

Grayscale film still study from Thor, concentrating on composition and light. Will probably do more film still studies in the future.

Style studies: did a few experiments and studies of painting styles I like to develop my own style. Originals on left, my studies on the right. Concentrated on use of shape and edges.
Experiment 1

At this point I decided to work on more fundamentals instead of developing style. First up, I want I better understanding of the body/face.
Face study

I'm planning on continuing studies on different forms of the body, as well as more face studies, figure drawings, and figure painting studies. Hopefully my faces and anatomy will greatly improve in the coming months. I also plan to do some form studies and still life paintings to practice painting form, more environment studies so my environments don't suck, and movie still studies so my composition and mood don't suck. This is going to be a full year!

More studies!

Wrapping up eye studies. I'll probably do some lips next then move on to full faces and expressions.

Did some landscape studies. Working on simplifying, getting a good read, and focusing detail on the focal point.
