I'll join in! Feet are difficult for me! It'll be a good challenge!:)

Skinny

Good idea, Jean. It's hard to get too muh practice with body parts!

LadyAlba

I'm in although my feet painting is about like my hand painting ... almost none existant...so be forewarned!! :lol:

I thought the third one looked a bit rude :) so I decided on the foot. Mine looks more like a mans foot with painted nails but never mind. Freehand no tracing, oily pastels P8

Great going on your foot Barry it looks human LOL, and sorry you think the 3rd one is rude, but it is of a person standing in a basin in a shower and I thought the water drops would be a good exercise also:)

Skinny
03-07-2006, 11:07 AM
Barry...Wonderful! Very painterly. Those long toes look like they could be decent fingers, huh?

barryt

Yours is just as great as I knew it would be I still say you are the master of hands and feet! :thumbsup:

Skinny
03-08-2006, 07:28 AM
Marge...there's not much way to deform that foot, lol. Good job.

Jean....you are the master of hands and feet. Excellent...and freehand, no less!

Lady, she looks like she is stretched out in the grass and I think you did a fine job.
barry, very nice work

LadyAlba

Decided to try the what I call "Ocean Swimmer" it reminded me of the stalls they have next to the ocean beaches (at the hotels) to rinse the salt water and sand off of you .... I found out the hard way if you don't it tends to burn. LOL Anyway I used the sketch feature in painter (too many lines and that perspective thing is there LOL) with my own settings then defined the feet and legs some more with the pencil. Will be painting on the canvas layer. :cat:

Here is my 30 min, very late night version of feet.

Good one though Marge, especially the drain hole.

Nice, Sherry.

Lady, you did great on that shower. Not sure I would have tackled that one...great job. Skinny, feet are perfect. Chiers, great job and it is almost flipflop weather. Well, here it almost always is LOL

Skinny

Thanks, Aggie! My roots are in Texas (Dallas), and I remember days when the temperature dropped 20 degrees in an hour.

Here's my basin feet lol, this one was like Marge's long toes the more I painted the worse it got :D

03-10-2006, 02:35 PM
Good one though Jean and am glad you omitted the dripping water :)
The floor remind me of the time I went to see a Shirley Temple film when I was about three (1936). The camera shot was above her like in your painting and I rmember thinking: why doesn't she slide down it? :confused:

Chiers
03-10-2006, 03:56 PM
Jean I think you did a swell job on your feet in a basin!

Lol Barry, I wonder if you got the same impression from the dripping water that I did.

Skinny
03-10-2006, 07:15 PM
Jean...GREAT job on your feet in water! Very convincing...:thumbsup:

LadyAlba
03-10-2006, 10:54 PM

03-13-2006, 12:36 AM
I've impressed myself with this one, almost as much as I'm impressed with the rest of the work I've seen here so far! I'm sure the inspiration has helped me! :clap: :clap: This was done entirely in Painter 4, (yes, I still like my old version) most chalk, a little felt tip pen for the eyelashes.

While I was on a roll, I decided to try the cat's eye.I'm not surprised I didn't have the patience to draw each hair, but I think I pulled it off pretty well. After 2 mini masterpieces, I still have to go fold wash and get ready for work tomorrow! :smug:

TxAggieDarlin
03-13-2006, 10:25 AM
Wonderful pictures, Jean, but I am just NOW doing the feet...being slow

Eyes are wonderful, the cats, dogs and peoples...wooohooo excellent job one and all!!

Here are my feet done in painter. Did a quick outline and should have spent more time on that LOL...then painted using oils mostly and my own colors....

I don't know.............are ANYONES FEET REALLY PRETTY lol:lol:

barryt
03-13-2006, 11:22 AM
Thanks Kristen. I think it is a woman. :)

Marge great foot. No I think most feet are - unpretty :)

LadyAlba
03-13-2006, 12:21 PM
Great work Elaine, Barry and Aggie!! WOW barry freehand for that eye I would have ended up with an oval pupil LOL

Thank you for your comment on mine too ;o)

03-13-2006, 01:05 PM
Thanks Marge!

Great dog eye Marge :)

Elaine your eyes both look great:)

Nice going on your eye Barry :)

Aggie your toes look great also :)

By the way the first eye is a lady and the 2nd and 3rd is a little boy :)

Skinny

Your continuing improvement AMAZES me! You just keep getting better and better.

EYE, EYE, EYE! What a great bunch of eyes you have all painted.

Elaine, special kudos on all that beautiful color in your eye!

barryt
03-14-2006, 12:15 PM
Thanks Jean, what a lovely eye you have. It looks so shiny. I'm always amazed when I paint anything that then looks shiny. I think: how did I do that?

Chiers
03-14-2006, 12:47 PM
I found the cat eye a perfect reference for a quick dip in the virtual paint before I start my day. My 20 min cat eye. psp artist brushes and push/ with custom brush. Took the quickie route for the fur

TxAggieDarlin
03-14-2006, 01:07 PM
lol, barry.......I am so glad to hear someone else they get surprised by their own painting...It is a neat feeling........and then I think, that was an accident:D

Skinny
03-14-2006, 05:19 PM
http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/14-Mar-2006/23354-Eye1.jpg

I did mine with the caputred bristle and wet acrylic...touches of pastel. This is a very useful exercise, Jean!

barryt
03-15-2006, 07:21 AM
I see you've done the eye we couldn't see Kristen (our left!) very clever. Good one, I hope it matches her other.

Skinny
03-15-2006, 09:31 AM
Nope, Barry...I'm planning to do the other in bright blue...

Spooky, Sherry!

barryt
03-15-2006, 10:25 AM
Sorry Sherry, forgot you! Good one, though as Kirsten says, it does look a bit spooky

TxAggieDarlin
03-15-2006, 11:47 AM
What idiot said eyes were easy LOL..........I did not mean they were easy, I said it surprised me how good they can turn out. However, this was not one of them LOL

Done in Painter and I struggled with the whole darn thing ...think I will try cat's eye next

Skinny
03-15-2006, 12:24 PM
But you did a GOOD job with it, Aggie! You saw all the important bits....:cat:

TxAggieDarlin
03-15-2006, 12:56 PM
Thanks Skinny, but I need to use more color in the skin.......he/she looks really pasty sickly and yours is so healthy looking lol........I want to know how you put greens and purples and make it look good...........

Skinny
03-15-2006, 05:44 PM
Well, Aggie, I confess that mine often look "pasty" when I first finish. Some of you pure purists who like to paint without filters wouldn't allow it...but I often give mine a tweaking with hue-saturation-equalize-whatever else filters...;)

Skinny
03-15-2006, 06:55 PM
For example, this one was way to pale. A copy was put through the equalize filter, and the transparency adjusted until the original and copy could be combined to suit me.

This eye was done withconte and pastel.

03-19-2006, 12:11 AM
It has been awhile since I tried a challenge here. I needed something to break my new Intous 3 11 X 6 in so tried one of the eyes, I just love the new brush tip pen. It still is going to take a bit of getting use to but is sure nice having my dual monitor reflected in my tablet ratio.

My hand isn't steady enough at the moment to try putting in the lashes so I skipped them here is my take on one of the eyes.
Edie

justjean
03-19-2006, 01:01 AM
Great eye Edie , glad you joined in :) as for the art tip pens I have just left mine sitting there I guess I should try it LOL

Elvira
03-19-2006, 11:06 AM
Thanks Jean, yes try them I haven't tried the felt marker one yet, but love the softness of the brush tip it doesn't feel like a brush to me but using it is like painting with next to no pressure and it is very resposive, I also find my strokes are more accruate fewer wavey lines lol, even if I couldn't my lash stroke to work I found the thicker ones when where I wanted them to better.
Edie

omniartz
03-19-2006, 12:31 PM
Edie, you've a new tablet! Great! Your eye looks very real even without the lashes. Enjoy your new tool!!

Skinny
03-20-2006, 11:36 AM
Good one, Edie...very dramatic!

To try and give the feel of that mottled skin color, I used pastel and sponge, mainly...
