    One rough color pass at the master study:

    Still needs a lot of work. I don't really know how to paint in the grass (yet), I'd have to experiment with digital brushes to get something like that cloudy dry brush effect. Some of the drawing needs reworking (especially the buildings) and of course there is a lot of painting refinement to do.

    I'm tempted to stop here with this exercise and move on. I can see some benefits in getting it more-exact, but it's taking a ton of time and effort to get something that already exists (a little demoralizing).

  • Wow you really inspire me, this is what I need to do, work through the exercises. I'm always rushing ahead to the next video.

  • Wow! Great work! I just added this video series to my to-do list, it seems great!

    Wow! I am slapping myself for not spending more time on the exercises Thank you for the inspiration!

  • Three Wows! Wow, what a nice surprise. Thank you Janet, Noemi and Lisa. 🙂

    I've had a go at the next one, which is a final creative design. I started with a few thumbs based on one of the silhouettes from earlier:

    I went with the first one I liked (a bit foolish). I ended up adjusting it a bit at full size and eventually got to this:

    Originally it was going to be a snail-house, but it changed mid-way into a watermelon-house.

    There is quite a lot of influence from the previous images I studied in the course and also this one (from Jake Parker's Fantasy Design Pintrest board, I'm not sure where its from originally):


    The building in my drawing is already in a fairly objective viewpoint, but I'll try some other objective angles for the final exercise. 🙂

  • 🙂 very wow worthy! I absolutely love your watermelon house! What a great idea!

  • Thanks Janet. 🙂 The silhouette method is great, as it may hint at ideas that would not think of otherwise.

    Last page. 🙂
