View Full Version : Lets paint body parts
03-07-2006, 06:18 AM
I thought it might be fun if we all tried to paint body parts and to start it off lets do FEET :lol: and next week I'll post more photos of another part. Hope you all will join in :D and post your paintings in this thread so we all can see them :)
the photos are all from morquefile
I'll join in! Feet are difficult for me! It'll be a good challenge!:)
03-07-2006, 07:56 AM
Good idea, Jean. It's hard to get too muh practice with body parts!
03-07-2006, 07:57 AM
I'm in although my feet painting is about like my hand painting ... almost none existant...so be forewarned!! :lol:
03-07-2006, 09:28 AM
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
03-07-2006, 09:34 AM
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:)
03-07-2006, 11:07 AM
Barry...Wonderful! Very painterly. Those long toes look like they could be decent fingers, huh?
03-07-2006, 11:41 AM
Thanks Jean and Skinny.
03-07-2006, 11:44 AM
Nice goin' barry... I think if you can paint feet, you can paint anything!:)
03-07-2006, 12:43 PM
Thanks Joel. Yes funny things feet, always something misshapen.
I meant to blend a bit but forgot.
03-07-2006, 01:43 PM
good work barry...:).
03-07-2006, 10:21 PM
Well I went for those "Purple tonails" too :lol: However I did a trace and still wasn't satisfied the more I messed with it the worse it got so here it is! LOL
03-07-2006, 10:52 PM
I think your tootsies look great Marge:thumbsup: , nice colour of polish too
Freehand with a lot of adding and erasing :D
03-07-2006, 10:55 PM
Thanks Jean :wave:
Yours is just as great as I knew it would be I still say you are the master of hands and feet! :thumbsup:
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!
03-08-2006, 10:08 AM
wooo Jean, beautiful job/excellent toenails
Lady, she looks like she is stretched out in the grass and I think you did a fine job.
barry, very nice work
03-08-2006, 11:16 AM
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:
03-08-2006, 02:34 PM
Marge, I hear you! Perspective in that picture would be a total nightmare for me.
Here is my 30 min, very late night version of feet.
Painter custom and impressionist brush/no presketch
03-08-2006, 02:36 PM
Barry, Marge, Jean Great feet!
03-08-2006, 02:53 PM
Love those little tootsies and 30 min.... ;o)
03-08-2006, 09:59 PM
Here is my swimmer as finished as it is going to get! LOL
03-09-2006, 05:40 AM
Here is my swimmer as finished as it is going to get! LOL
Swimmer!! Is this the recommended way to start? :)
Good one though Marge, especially the drain hole.
VG Sherry and Jean, and Marge (on the foot)
03-09-2006, 11:49 AM
You bet, Barry ...this way you don't have to worry about your hair! ROFL:lol: Thank you! :wave:
03-09-2006, 01:42 PM
Great job on this, Marge! I enjoyed seeing your preliminary sketch.
Loved this gal's tootsies, but the shade of nail color had to go, LOL.
03-09-2006, 03:08 PM
Beautiful tootsies Skinny, Excellent picture
03-09-2006, 06:50 PM
03-10-2006, 08:23 AM
Sherry, Marge and Kirsten you all have great tootsies :thumbsup:
03-10-2006, 10:36 AM
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
03-10-2006, 10:42 AM
Thanks, Aggie! My roots are in Texas (Dallas), and I remember days when the temperature dropped 20 degrees in an hour.
03-10-2006, 01:55 PM
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:
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.
03-10-2006, 07:15 PM
Jean...GREAT job on your feet in water! Very convincing...:thumbsup:
03-10-2006, 10:54 PM
Jean your feet in the basin turned out Great!! :thumbsup:
03-11-2006, 05:55 PM
The eyes have it :) people,cats and dogs

WOW is right LOL 1st class ref photos Jean! :thumbsup:
03-11-2006, 10:23 PM
Had to do the cat eye LOL first took me longer to do the fur about an hour for this used my fur brush and my soft impasto brush.
03-12-2006, 12:20 AM
Great eye Marge and terrific shaping to it :clap:
03-12-2006, 01:57 AM
I went with the dog eye :)
Painter IX clumpy and 1 pixel pen
03-12-2006, 06:53 AM
Thanks Jean and I really like your dog eye too :wave: Leave it to us to pick the easy ones....no skin tone ROFL :lol:
03-12-2006, 07:55 AM
Couldn't sleep so guess what I am up at almost 5 am painting LOL Here is my dog eye almost an hour for this one. :wave:
03-12-2006, 12:48 PM
Marge, Jean....You're good and SPEEDY!
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.
03-13-2006, 01:05 AM
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:
03-13-2006, 08:09 AM
Elaine...you are entitled to feel smug! WELL done. I particularly like the human eye done in chalk.
03-13-2006, 09:42 AM
here's my body part
Freehand no tracing Conte P8
03-13-2006, 10:22 AM
A+ for you Barry! The owner of this eye looks like he's seen something amazing.
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:
03-13-2006, 11:22 AM
Thanks Kristen. I think it is a woman. :)
Marge great foot. No I think most feet are - unpretty :)
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
03-13-2006, 06:59 PM
Amazing eye, barry, you made it so 3 D...great depth in the eye:clap:
03-13-2006, 09:29 PM
Excellent, Aggie....LOVE that background!
03-14-2006, 05:30 AM
Thank you Aggie. i think the reflection could be better.
03-14-2006, 09:30 AM
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 :)
here's mine , Painter IX, clumpy and pencil, did an outline for this one :D
03-14-2006, 09:52 AM
:wave: :clap: Fantastic eye, Jean...........You know, before I started hanging out with you all, I thought eyes would be impossible to do. It amazes me how wonderful they turn out and are so realistic. You really did a fantastic job:clap:
03-14-2006, 09:54 AM
:clap: :) :clap: :) :clap: :) :clap:
Your continuing improvement AMAZES me! You just keep getting better and better.
03-14-2006, 12:04 PM
EYE, EYE, EYE! What a great bunch of eyes you have all painted.
Elaine, special kudos on all that beautiful color in your eye!
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?
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
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
03-14-2006, 05:19 PM
I did mine with the caputred bristle and wet acrylic...touches of pastel. This is a very useful exercise, Jean!
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.
03-15-2006, 09:31 AM
Nope, Barry...I'm planning to do the other in bright blue...
03-15-2006, 10:25 AM
Sorry Sherry, forgot you! Good one, though as Kirsten says, it does look a bit spooky
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
03-15-2006, 12:24 PM
But you did a GOOD job with it, Aggie! You saw all the important bits....:cat:
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...........
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...;)
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.
03-15-2006, 06:57 PM
Here's my attempt at one of the eyes, conte brushes.:
03-15-2006, 07:09 PM
Sherry I think you got a wildcats eye there :)
Great eye Kirsten, I like how you did the inner corner :)
Kirsten other than the green eyeball it looks fine :)
03-15-2006, 08:20 PM
TERRIFIC job, Barry! :clap: You really got all the light that made these refs so special.
03-15-2006, 10:51 PM
Very nice Kirk :)
03-16-2006, 05:27 AM
Great job Kirk! I think Kristen meant Kirk too!?
Wow! jean those closeups are incredible!:thumbsup: :thumbsup:
03-16-2006, 06:56 AM
Ooops, I did mean Kirk....sorry...:rolleyes:
03-16-2006, 12:45 PM
Sherry, Aggie, Kirk, Great eyes!! :thumbsup: Here is my shorty this morning! :wave:
03-16-2006, 06:55 PM
Well done, Marge...that's a very appealing green! So often green eyes are over done and not very credible.
03-17-2006, 08:35 PM
Had time today between doctors and picking up meds to get this one finished went with the lazy eye one :wave:
03-17-2006, 09:25 PM
and another great one Marge great colours in his eye :thumbsup: , he looks a little sleepy :lol:
03-17-2006, 09:32 PM

03-17-2006, 11:18 PM
:eek: This is awesome. All of you have done a superb job.
03-18-2006, 09:14 AM
Good job, Marge!
Ears...that's a GOOD one, Jean, and as usual, you've found excellent refs. Thanks...:wink2:
03-18-2006, 10:26 AM
Thanks Skinny, Jean and Maria Here is my quicky ear done with impasto and conte brushes
03-18-2006, 11:41 AM
Your ear looks great Marge :)
thanks Kirsten so far so good with the references :lol:
Ok heres my ear I can't say how long it took cause I would do a stroke then go chase the dog, do another stroke get g/daughter something to eat, do another stroke answer the phone and on and on and on :D
03-18-2006, 11:58 AM
Good one, Marge...:)
The joys of being a modern woman, Jean? Well done!
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.
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
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.
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!!
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...
03-20-2006, 12:02 PM
:clap: Lady, great TWO eyes and ONE great ear...Lady, those lashes are awesome.
Jean and Skinny great ears.....
Elvira, wonderful job....
I am having trouble keeping up with all of you ......If I missed it, sorry, work is great:D
03-20-2006, 12:04 PM
OMNI.............WOW, one awesome eye.......
I know, I am going backwards LOL
Thanks, Skinny for info. I never think of filters and not even sure where they are, but I will go play LOL
03-20-2006, 03:07 PM
Done in Painter with very quick sketch of the ear and then painted using oil and blenders. Hmmm looking at it something is wrong w/ top of the ear....sigh:(
03-20-2006, 11:44 PM
Edie, Jean, Skinny, and Aggie Great going! ;o) Here is a quickie had to do something today down with a bug but wanted to paint something. :wave: http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/20-Mar-2006/29951-babear.jpg
03-21-2006, 06:24 AM
Good ones, Aggie, Marge! Isn't it surprising how different ears are?
03-21-2006, 11:06 PM
hear's an ear - Paainter watercolors and glazing acrylic brushes:
03-22-2006, 07:36 AM
Good job, Kirk! Strange that it's watercolor because it has the look of very old oil.
03-22-2006, 01:17 PM
Good job with those watercolors, Kirk! ;o)
03-22-2006, 03:59 PM
Great parts everyone :lol:

03-26-2006, 11:28 PM
Here is a quick 30 min sketch/paint LOL I ended up dropping the sketch layer on it and decided to go with it she also ended up with kind of lumpy legs! LOL :wave:
03-27-2006, 12:50 PM
Nice work on the first legs image, Marge! I like the sketching part of it, but I like lines :lol: Well done!!! :)
03-28-2006, 12:16 AM
