Re: the sky is ink

In Frank's Hoodie thread we were discussing Form and Light - here I drew another head, added the bird and twigs, painted light on the planes, and then ran it through a bunch of filters and used masks to be selective. (A very sloppy and fast effort, but wanted to continue the discussion. I don't know...

Re: Hoddie

Your last image was a vast improvement over my earlier cut, I was just thinking aloud... I hope I am slowly improving. Sometimes I feel like a dog that is chasing his tail!

If I can go just a little bit faster, and stretch just a little bit further, I'll be able to take a solid, hard bite!!

Re: Hoddie

The dog makes me smile, and makes me miss Toby. I still haven't been able to get my husband to let us get another, though it's been 3 years.
also, it may be time to start dropping "not so subtle" hits. You could get a robovac and tape ears and a tail on it, and paint the name Roby on him.

Re: Hoddie

I like what you did, could use some "form building". Points: I like the disappearing edge, back side right of the hoodie. Inside of hoodie on camera right and lower right hoodie overall, make darker (so the cheek is more pronounced) Less light on the nose, and the right side behind the edge even dar...

Re: Dam Bird Christmas Decorations

very cool - the blocks remind me of packages... perhaps some Christmas packages to the left to lead into the block steps, and transition the boxes into the steps. the bird is climbing into the light up and away from the commercialized version of Christmas into a higher definition and meaning

... The dog makes me smile, and makes me miss Toby. I still haven't been able to get my husband to let us get another, though it's been 3 years. I'm jealous about the drawing course. I don't think there's a lot of hope for me, but perhaps... after the holidays which are consuming every minute of my...

Re: Broken Dreams

and I see it as a fascinating study of the human form and how it is full of motion/movement/balance. I'm with Frank on this one, I'd like to see it fully gritty and dark with the green/light background between the bars eliminated. A story of "how did this happen?". Choices made? Bad luck encountered...

Re: Just a quick update and check in

Busy is good Duck. Check out Udemy - I have been using it as a student, I suspect you could easily find a home there as an instructor. It might serve as a framework for you if you have the material - and I know you have no fear of hard work!

Re: Aesthetic Corporal Sports Massage

good capture, it is amazing (to me) how often the photographer can find moments where he and the camera seems invisible to the surrounding world.
