procedural brushes are really cool, and awesome for speed. good way to test www.mrdoob.com/projects/harmony/ <web based procedural brush app, Krita has a dozen intergrated into it.

Grimsane, some cool studies. That triangular wireframe brush you're using has a really cool effect. Would be interesting to see some color sketches with it.

This is a portrait I whipped up for fun, experimenting construction methods:


Based on Omar Sharif in Lawrence of Arabia:

Edit:
Another painting I'm working on, based on a homework assignment from one of Shaddy's classes. (That's not creepy, right?)

Here's Shaddy's own interpretation and I shutter at the thought of comparison:

It's interesting seeing how he chose to stylize each element, and analyzing the brushstrokes to see what brush he's using for each textural situation. I love the michelangelo-esque torque he expresses in the main cliff. Good stuff.

Looks great, Helm! :) Any chance to see it at a higher resolution?

For those who don't know yet, I've been in psycho-therapy since about 2.5 weeks ago (hence the sudden stop of my activity in the anatomy thread). Among other problems which are yet to be determined, I'm dealing with something called "social phobia".

Part of the therapy is visual creativity! Yay!  :)

Some value/portrait studies:




Should probably use some mixer brush to round out the first one like I did for the second.

Neat, Dennis!


@Corinthian    That you're normal MO? - rough hard-edged brushing, then you go back and do blending over all of it?

Not sure if I would call it my MO, but I like to paint opaque. Then depending on the surface/texture I'll introduce some transparent strokes to make it more cohesive. Sometimes mixer brush is needed to bring it all together, is that a bad methodology?
