people spoke: body motion for this month. It's a good occasion to stylize, show good brush energic strokes. Make those studies move!
We want to thank you all for the theme's ideas, it will be useful for the next months. We remind you that you can help us (and we would be glad of it) to choose the photo references.
The january challenge showed some very good studies and I always take pleasure to see how it results in very different painting styles.
Speaking of contributions: the group grows bigger and bigger every month and I'm pretty sure that some of you didn't have the courage to submit a study. To those one, I want to say that you'll be surprised by how agreable and satisfying it is. And even failures (as we all had) will help you to learn. So, don't be shy, go ahead and give it a try!
The picture selection:
Here's Da Rules
Same rules as always. 2 hour time limit! No tracing! No color picking from the original ref! Figure out your own colors. Make sure you include credit and links where you got your stock photo in the DA description. Not only do most stock provider want to be informed if there pictures are used, but for study reasons referencing to the original source is better for getting crits.
When your done submit it to this folder here: speedpaintstudies.deviantart.c…
Also say a few words on your study in the description. Helps others when commenting on your work. Its always good to take a moment and reflect on your studies so you can better tackle and improve on those areas in the next study.
Common things to answer are:
►What did you learn from doing this study?
►What did you find difficult?
►What area's do you wish to improve on?
As always, if you're participating in these studies, it's highly encouraged to comment on other peoples studies when they get submitted to the group. Sharing advice crits and tips will help each other grow!
That's it! Best of luck this month! We are looking forward to seeing each others studies!
