Quick-question, how long are you spending on these? Because frankly I've always been a big fan of the saying that painting is never actually that good unless you plug the damn time into it.
They're all prolly between 1 and 2 hours. Part of the reason I'm doing this thread is to get some speed, so I'm deliberately trying to not spend too much time on them.
personally, thought that the orange and black face cd cover thing that you posted in the thread was better then each and every single other picture, which all look unfinished and rushed to various degrees
Reason why the bicolour picture looks better then half your painterly ones. Or are you just trying to do these for the small amounts of experience they'll yield anyway?
I always like doing stylized/abstrahised/whatever stuff, but it's really hard to see what's right and wrong about it. I personally like that Black on Both sides one too, but I can't really say why; which also makes it difficult to improve. The painterly stuff looks unfinished cause I'm trying to build speed. They would usually take me much longer to paint, but I'm forcing myself to do them quickly to try and grab the basics... that works better for some (#6,7 and 12) of them than it does for others.
So yeah; The mos def one looks better becuase it's supposed to look rough and because I'm rushing the painterly ones. I'm doing the painterly ones to force myself to get into the basics a bit more instead of covering stuff up with details or w/e. And yeah, I learn more from doing the painterly ones.
