Re: Facebook for exposure?

i use it and have a page but what i do is make the image smaller so when they print it off on a bigger scale it just looks pixelated or you can put a small watermark at the bottom of your pictures like a photographer would do. i know you can now advertise your page to people who are not your friends...

Re: fairytale's death

lighthouse seascape

this is oil on canvas, 45 x 50cm. this is the 1st seascape i've ever done and it's still wet because of how white i've used. i find it very odd that darker colours tend to dry faster than white oil paint. i like to lean towards baroque and fantasy but i'm trying out the old masters style at the mome...

colour pencils

i'm currently using Derwent coloursoft pencils for sketching and even when with minimal even pressure the texture is still quite grainy. if i press hard the colour is smooth but then i would be sharpening them every 5 minutes. so i'm looking for a different set that isn't by Derwent. i've been looki...

Re: Les Miserables,sketch

i really like this. facial expression is captured perfectly. proportions look good and nice exaggeration on the eyes, hands show frailty and weakness of the subject. good use of tones. if it was me I'd make certain areas darker and make it overly dramatic but it's still good the way you have done it...

Re: Acrylic or Oil

i prefer oil over acrylic as i like to work wet on wet and in thick layers. if i use acrylics i have to use a retarder but the problem with that is it makes the paint transparent, so i use heavy body acrylic with a palette knife, then blend as quick as i can with a dry brush or my fingers. pretty mu...
