What is your opinion?

Yesterday, I try to forget digital method and pay attention to David Peters advice for making my sketch in black by ink and oil paper….in result, I print my sketch and buy several ink pens (for drawing of different line size) and start my work…the result was good but after scan, I had problem for edit….suddenly, I found a new method for making my sketch in black by “ACDsee photo edit” software without use of print and ink….first, I use “Auto levels” for making my gray lines in black and then, I use “Exposure” for make background completely white…then, I edit some lines in “paint Microsoft”… may think it is strange way for edition….but my limitation make me creative for create new ways for edition… strange but a possible way …. my personal computer do not adapt by photo shop and in Iran, speed of internet is very low for download “Illustration adobe” software….Now, after ten horses, I finished my artwork for making it in new version…..I hope you and your family like my new art……It is my first art work with such method(a white skeleton In black flesh)…I am happy I can development my ability….previous week, I did not have skill for making my artwork similar to Scott Hartman art and today, I can create an amateur art like to Scott Hartman Method…I try to perform all my effort for my personal good goal and I think every person should perform similar way if he (she) believed to his(her) goal.

whats up! i just found your gallery and really love it!
i wanted to ask you a question, you do exactly the same tipe of digital painting i always wanted to do (really subtle colors)

what type of studys do you do the most? how much time do you spend on a study and how do you put what you learn in the studys into a original paint?

love to hear an answer :D

Thanks! Really apreciate it. :)

I do loads of studies of all sorts (for proof see my sketchbook [link])

I often try to target a particular problem. If there's something I don't quite get (in example something in human anatomy) I do bunch of studies to remedy that sittuation. I also try to challenge myself. If there's something I consider difficult to paint/draw there's no better reson to draw/paint that particular subject. Each study is a chance to learn and experiment. That stuff piles up, it really does.

How much I put on a study really depends on the study. If I study painting techniques I spend an hour or so of really trying to make a pretty looking painting. If I'm studying color and just color, I might use anything from 1-15 mins per study. Or if I'm studying human gesture I just do 30 sec gesture studies. so it depends, and it's all up to you how much time do you spend per study.

Hope that helps, and appologies again for the late response.

Feel free to ask more questions if you have any. I'm more than happy to help if I can. :)
