Clearly, I suck. by TheRebelWithNoCause Clearly, I suck. by TheRebelWithNoCause
So, this is my first REAL attempt at painting. My other simple paintings were to just get the feel of the different paint types. Clearly, I didn't get a very good feel for the tempera paint.. cause this SUCKS. I could not get my brushes to do what I wanted, no matter how small of one I used :/ I really need help lol

The dog is my puppy, Skunky. She's gorgeous, don't let this painting fool you lol

Here's an actual picture of what she looks like - [link]

I think this is a fine painting. I love the background, how you mixed the colors and how it has a blue glow effect to it. Fur is a very difficult subject to paint, just keep trying and don't get discouraged. No one is perfect over night. lol

Thank you. I was so discouraged by this painting.. It's nice to hear that it's not as bad as I thought. I REALLY love the background on it, too. I watched a couple videos on how to paint fur, but I didn't feel like they went over it well enough for me. Plus, like I said in the artist comments, I just couldn't get the brush to do what I want. Luckily, this is just a photocopy of the original. I'll probably make a couple more copies and just keep practicing until I feel comfortable with the way it looks.

Painting isn't an artform for me, so i can't help much... I've only finished one painting and it took me FOREVER! >_<" The idea of printing several copies off and just keep trying differnt styles sounds like a very good plan. Just keep playing with it and find what you like best!

I'm also going to try and reconnect with an old friend of mine that's an artist on here also. Hopefully, she can give me some pointers in person and I might understand it better. But, I'm also going to try and find more stuff on the internet in the meantime. I think I would on this painting for two hours or so. I don't have much else to do with my day, so it's a rather productive way to pass the time.
