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. :)

Sorry, I favourited the work before I saw your message on favouriting! What software do you use? Your work is utterly incredible.

Thanks! I get this question quite often. People seem to think I'm using painter but the simple truth of it is I use exclusively photoshop.

Thanks for dropping by!
