Colour study 201214 by Vimes-DA
Colour study 201214
Another colour study. Trying to mix colours a bit more like you would traditionally, using a few colours to mix the other colours, rather than picking each new colour from the colour wheel, tricky but i think I'm getting hang of it. Still have a lot of trouble blending in photoshop, I'm never sure of the tecnhique, hard edges brushes make it blocky, soft edge brushes make it mushy, I find it really hard to get a nice balance between the two. Pleased with it overall though.

Man your art is great! My drawing teacher even used your foreshortening practice:
:thumb183669940: as an example for us!
Vimes-DA Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2013
Ohh thanks a lot. That's really cool that your teacher used my work as an example haha, though I don't know if it's the best idea because my works far from perfect. Never heard of a teacher using deviant art pictures as reference either lol, is your teacher a friend or someone in an actual school?
AngelicDemon82 Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
He's a high school teacher, so he just used google. Surprisingly it didn't block your picture (my school blocks dA) :D

Hey there Vimes, long time no see!

Remember when you recommended me to get Jack Hamms Drawing scenery book to improve my landscapes? Well, I just ordered it and also, at the same time ordered Color and Light, Imaginative Realism and Perspective made Easy :D Thanks to you, I found these books which look really great and Iam sure will make my skills skyrocket like never before! If you hadnīt recommended them, boy would I miss out on some of the greatest!

Another fun thing as well, Iīve really started grasping how perspective works finally! And, it really isnīt as hard as I first made it to be :XD:

Just wanted to share haha Cheers! :D

Hey :D that's great to hear I'm glad I could help. I was just reading through that perspective book recently, really need to sit down and just spend a week going through it. Like you say the basics of perspective aren't as hard as they seem and really make a difference, just one of those subject where my mind switches off though, it's so mathematical.

I'd recommend a book by gottfried bamms [link] too. At first I read this and wasn't very impressed but if you just sit down with it and read the little bits of text and try to understand what hes doing I found his drawings really helped me get a better understanding of form and 3d in constructing the human figure :D.

Also read through a really good pdf for getting gesture and life into your drawings which you definitly need to do if you spend a lot of timne drawing stiff construction methods like I do [link]

Lot of stuff to read I know but just work your way through them all slowly, well worth the effort.
