Hello my friends! Here is the study that i did this morning. also i noticed something that bothers me a lot. For example that last post with the girl and the hand are looking very dirty on the monitor at work (especially the boots and the jeans) while on the one at home it looks very close to the reference file and close to photorealistic. I will buy soon a spyder to calibrate them because i can;t take it anymore!

Day 50 - Deathline Resumed

Hello! It has been 2 weeks since i have stopped posting here and I want to announce you that i feel much better and i am in good shape! I think the whole workout thing has injured me first of all and i will be more careful when i'll do it in the future. I have also installed a magic little program called workrave that makes me take brakes from time to time to stretch my wrists and torso. So in all this time i did the livestream, studied and painted like the usual but i didn;t do the workout. So now i will post some of the studies that i did! Thanks for watching and see ya tomorrow!

Deathline on hold

Unfortunately i have to put on hold the deathline because of my wrist. I think i am developing carpal-tunnel syndrome. I will continue the livestreams though but i won't do anymore work after i am returning home from work. But this will be only for a week and i hope i will be fine after that and start again the deathline. so don;t forget guys to do breaks to relax your hand! also if you are doing sports watch out for exercises that hurt your hand and try to avoid them (for me the push-ups are the problem or exercises that require me to stand in a push up position). so see ya tomorrow! I won;t post anything today because i don;t like what i did. i want to return again to long studies. rushing things doesn;t help:(

Day 38-49

Oh wow!! It has been soooo long since i have updated this blog!! First of all happeeee neeew yerery!! Hope you got a nice party and happy holidays.
So all this time i was working for the challenges that Dan and Dave are holding up. I did studies in photoshop and in my sketchbook. I will post though only what i did in PS because i don;t have photographed the sketchbook. I have made some human mistakes during this period. I have been slacking with the workout and i have drank soda (only 1l but that's enough to call it a failure). anyway after watching today rocky it got me pumped up and made me do the workout again so now i am on the right track:) At work we have started to work hardcore again so the following months will be a tough time for me but I'll try to do my best with everything.
I have organized some meetings with romanian 2d artists in this time too. And it was real fun and it will happen again:D!!
