Lasso Speedpaints 3-16-13

These are straying a little bit away from my project description, but we're doing some specific exercises at our studio this week and I don't have time for much extra, so these will probably be my updates for now.

These are all about 10 minutes each with a focus on simplicity and capturing the light with as few elements as possible. No color picking or tracing, all through observation, using just the lasso tool, flat shapes and a few gradients when necessary.

I remember my digital art teacher doing this, it really does make a good practice study for color and composition. :D This picture makes me want to start doing these again, I'd love to get them as nicely matching as these ^^

Yeah, it's definitely a good exercise. Training your eye is probably one of the most important things, and the assertiveness of these makes you really think about your decisions.

They turned out really nicely! It looks like the cutout filter in Photoshop. If you use Photoshop, open up one of the images, go to Filter>Filter Gallery...>Artistic>Cutout to see what I mean.

Thanks! :)

And yeah, they have similar effects; but the cutout filter is going based on math, how close the hex codes match each other to group them together, your mind does a much better job if discerning what's what.

Fair enough! I did not know that.

Hmmm This is something I definitely need to do!! I work primarily in Illustrator so this seems like a fitting exercise.
