Loose to Refined

Larriva Study


Title: Larriva Study
Date: December 21, 2013
Medium: Photoshop CS3
Scale: Original is 1000px x 1400px

Notes: John Larriva is pretty damn good at simplifying the form. I think it might be a good practice to either try and manipulate the paint in a similar manner, or try and do a bunch of studies using the technique. Regardless, this guy is definitely pro! Time to keep catching up.

Wired Scars

Scale: Original is 1366px x 2058px

Notes: Tried out something new here by using photo filters to start the color (on top of a grey painting) and then sample from that to paint the final. It came out not so bad, and this image is the result. It's kinda creepy to me, but was a fun and new way to paint even faster. I might try this again just to see how far it can be pushed.

  1. I think you should stay away from coloring w/ adjustment layers for now until you get a better handle on using more saturation and better/varied color choices. Even with coloring w/ an adjustment layer, you still have to paint on top of it to really get a proper range of color.
