7/20/2011 Wednesday Studies

Artist Study, Nishant Choksi. Ugh MyPaint was fighting me the whole way, depending on the size and color you're working with, sometimes it's impossible to see the cursor. Doesn't appear to be a way to change it either. Ugh.

Anatomy Study of the skull. Happier with this one, but I feel I should move on to other parts of the body.

Color Study with ColorSchemeDesigner. This is a triad color scheme, and I was playing around with using color and saturation to denote value relationships, using a saturated purple for the shaded regions. Sort works? What do you think?

7/9/2011 Studies

Quick color study with color scheme designer. Set to tetrad, and the very dark (saturated) preset. It looks pretty duochromatic, though, maybe I ought to try simpler color schemes.

Another Mary Blair artist study

7/8/2011 Studies

Quick, nocturnal, color study, with colorschemedesigner, Tetrad, highly desaturated. The purples and blues blend together a bit too much, though the mix can add variety is used subtley across wide surfaces.

Big messy skull study

7/6/2011 - Today's Studies

Anatomy study, the skull again, got most of the labels right, for the structures of the skull that are visible from the front anyway. I still need to nail down proportions, but I'll start doing more side/back/bottom studies from here.

Color Study with an analogic color scheme.

Artist Study, Mary Blair, not sure of the title, I think this is a concept piece for Peter Pan. I have been limiting myself to 15 minutes, and I didn't get in all the details I'd expect here. I was rushing it, which is no bueno. I think I need to explore the brushes in MyPaint and see if I can make some custom ones that do what I want them to.

Quick color study, using color scheme designer. I feel it needs more details and variety.
