Ok, im now roughly 5 days short of where im so post to be with this challenge. I thought i could juggle finals and a daily sketch painting but as of a few days ago it clicked that I have 3 painting to flesh out in a week. So Im not entirely goofing off or being lazy I did spend 7 hours yesterday on photoshop figuring out layer masks for one of my finals. Although frustrating it was also quite satisfying, thanks to some much needed help from friends I learned more in that 7 hour timeframe about photoshop than I have all semester.
But as always thanks for the views and check back in a week or so and ill have some paintings up.

So did this as an excuse to try out my custom cloud brush I made last night. Pretty pleased with how it operates, there is defiantly an art to making custom brushes, spent at-least two hours goofing around and managed to make this one and a gaggle of other really bad looking brushes that I ended up deleting

I started working digitally this semester and must admit I am struggling with photoshop. Motivated by Ashley Woods 30 day challenge that he started on his blog, I have begun my own. So for the next 30 days I will be creating 1 digital image a day in 1 hour. My goal by the end of this is to have a more intuitive feel for the program as well as 1 half way decent image. I think it is safe to say that this is not the one!

Touched up my zombie painting bout to call it good and move on, chalk it up as learning experience. The painting on the easel is the block in stage of my love and Tech project due in two weeks, Haven't attempted a full scale oil painting in that short of a time frame I am hoping I wont run into drying time issues. I also have two gessoed up boards on stand by so look for progress on those sometime next week.
New process I have been toying with. Started on a toned canvas color is irrelevant just depends on the mood you want to achieve. Than I start gesturing in the composition with vince charcoal, I than proceed with a sharpie and ruff in the details. Once the drawing is in place I add white highlights with gesso or acrylic paint or guash whatever is on hand. Next step oil glaze in a basic shadow tone. And than comes the underpainting blocking in color using an old masters dead pallet. The last step involves glazes with a double primary palette. The outcome for this painting. egh. Not the best but love the process and will continue working with it until I figure it out. Thanks for the views.
