pAiNt tHiS! cHapTeR 13

pAiNt tHiS!
cHapTeR 13

Hello Arteeeests! This is the thirteenth chapter of an ongoing series developed to share and learn from each other. Here's how it works: We will post reference pictures and everyone will paint the references in their own style.

Instead of delaying the "Paint This" chapter, I will upload the references one by one, over a short period of time. This will allow me to take the time to find good references, in an attempt to keep the quality as high as possible.

Note: The reference subject matter will change from chapter to chapter, so don't worry about getting bogged down with the same type of content. We will try our best to keep it fresh.

Feel free to share your techniques and any other thoughts that may benefit others! It's also fine to post your works in progress.

We're all students here... this exercise is for all experience levels... the important thing is to learn and grow. Feel free to jump right in. This project does not discriminate between methods... it's open to all digital techniques... from vector to bitmap... from freehand to manips. Do your thing!... that's what counts!

If your on the fence about participating in this assignment... don't even think about not joining in on the fun!!!

Here are your new assignments...

I know, I know... I probably should be posting a landscape at this point, but I happened upon this image and thought it to be a fascinating challenge. I promise the next ref will be a lands/sea scape.

Yawning Monkey...

Photo by Steve Evans (if you post this image, or your derivative artwork anywhere else, be sure and give this photographer his credit).



Check back... more references uploaded very soon!

FYI: The next "Paint This" is scheduled for aprox. October 7th

Re: pAiNt tHiS! cHapTeR 13

Thanks Bev, Joel, Jean. I must say, Joel, you do find some great pictures to paint. I did not paint much from photos before I started doing digital. Most photos are not very good in composition. These photos are really quite fun.

Jean, your puppy made m e crack-up. You really brought out the personality. I can tell that many are going to have some fun with this reference photo.

Sherry, thanks. Your pooch is on fire! It really brings out the wetness of his nose and the glisten in his eyes.
