White Still Life by Cacodaemonia White Still Life by Cacodaemonia
I signed up for ConceptArt.org's Idea Development for Artists class that Jason Manley, John English, and Sterling Hundley taught this past Saturday, and participated in the portfolio review on Sunday as well. I got TONS of awesome advice from Jason and John, so the first thing I decided to do was a white objects study.

Corel Painter 11, total time spent was about 17 hours.

17 hours!! :noes: It shows though! The different textures and surfaces all look amazing, and I could just stare for hours at the subtle shades of white/grey/cream. I love how the light filters through the paper tissue and especially the glass ball.
And I think it's cool that you included a bone and a tooth.

Thank you! I have a small collection of animal bones and teeth that I've found over the years, and they're wonderful to draw. :)

Wow, awesome! Mark English came to my school and gave a demo which rocked my socks. I think John English is his son (that would make sense wouldn't it). I really like this still life, and my favorite part is the glass ball. It's little bubbles and reflections are just...Mwahhhh!

Ah, that must have been awesome! :D

The paper weight was fun to paint. Nick made it in an introduction to glass-blowing class, actually, and he's the one who stuck it in the still life, hehe.

Thanks!

I hope I can find time to work on my coloring too. All I do are pencil sketches these days. :O_o:

Well, thanks. ^^

It's not a bad idea to work on values for a while, before moving on to color. Often, painting students don't even use color until their second or third years.

Wow. That's good to know. :D

I think I've improved a little since I started but still need much more to get to the point where I'm almost satisfied with what I do. ^^;

More practice then.. :D
