________________________________

Art Goals since December 6, 2009
To improve technically and thematically.
.......................................
I will comment on every single picture I add to my favorites. (From now on, because I am not going through the hundreds in my Favorites already...)


JAN 2012
Some specific aesthetic goals...
1. lighter/more graceful outlines (anime style).
2. lower color saturation. Dec 2013
3. at least one well-worked, epic, dynamic piece.
4. at least one un-sloppy, finished anime piece with unfudged background.

AUG 2012
One high-key painting, one low-key painting.

JULY 2014
Predictably, I have met none of my goals!
You have entered the :sun:Sunburst!Era, where almost every image has garish back-lighting featuring a sunburst!

Goals
:bulletred: ethereal/beautiful/softer works
:bulletred: character interactions and scenes
:bulletred: full environments with better perspective and angle

Watchful
Exercise, one of many... 

~3 hrs
Paint Tool SAI + Photoshop CC
Thumbnail looks better than full-size, but now I can see how I messed up. Eh.
Didn't end up following reference for the face.

Fell Asleep Again
"Speedpaint" based on a screencap, but I did a gender swap and anime edit. Hope to keep doing more until these feel less effortful, and meanwhile learn something about framing and context clues.

Reference used (as mentioned). 
Time: 3-4 hours

Velocity [Revised]
EDIT: Fixed a few details and adjusted the color balance.

This did not turn out anything near what I wanted or originally aimed to achieve, although I did end up getting a lot of practice with painting hands and arms + confusing my light sources.

Moral: Be more concise with brushstrokes. Once you start laboring over something, the picture is doomed.

Time:?????
Paint Tool SAI, Photoshop CC
Loading...
Infinite
More details and WIP images now on Tumblr (Artemnestra).


Mostly Paint Tool SAI, with Photoshop CS
Many references used. As you can tell, I got too invested in the horses. Should prolly tone down the contrast on them?
Time: 8-12 hours? Forced immobility does have an upside!
Music: Bombay Theme, Echo, arpeggio version (again), The Fountain OST, etc.
