I wanted to make something quick for this Collaboration at Society6. I never keep track of time because I usually don't work on these in one sitting. Also, tumblr, internet. But probably around 2-3 hours.

the Fall

45 minutes

the movie has nothing to do with shoes.

I'm trying to rely less on the opacity, and more straight value/color blocking!

The Beginning

I'm having a real hard time with these... But I'm posting them anyway. Each one is about an hour. The first two are done in Oekaki Shi-Painter at because the low resolution was easier to work with, and the third one is photoshop.

This Blog is About...?

Hey guys,

School is just about wrapping up, and it's been a fantastic year crammed full of learning and improving,
but I feel like one of the most important techniques of painting that I haven't quite gotten down is color/value grouping.

I figure the best way to change this is by speed painting!

Especially shots from movies, with their nice scene setups and lighting so we don't have to worry about composition or, god forbid, taking reference photos.

Hopefully, this project will allow us to consciously expose ourselves to some nice cinematography :)

...or not.

Can't wait to start!
