@FMR Thanks! :) Sometimes it almost feels like faulty RAWs results in better images for various reasons.

This is actually from my sony a6000. A lot of the underexposed images tend to have this 90s film camera quality to it after it. I am not sure, if it is what I tend to gravitate toward, or has to do with the properties of the film back in the day.

@eylul yeah, also its the foundation for going into more detail. also its more fun that my old approach - you work from big to small, always noting the next biggest thing you see and this way you actually keep a lot of fun dynamics :D

Back to oils! This is my first attempt at a real piece, on a canvas pad. Learned a few things:
- You can extend the paint a lot more with oil than water-based paint. Spreading a small bit of paint over a lot of canvas makes a nice smoky effect.
- Oils are less opaque than gouache or casein. This made adding highlights tricky, especially over wet paint.
- It’s hard to relax and remember that the paint won’t dry right away on either the piece or the palette. 😀

@marionline interesting. :) What engine are you using? and what genre is this? If you don't mind the questions. *is curious* :)

@Ayior messy from close-up is actually not a problem. it actually helps giving energy to a drawing. Something that felt very counter-intuitive at first, in my drawing classes too. :)

Smartphone shot. I am not sure how I feel about this. Overedited or just enough? Also apparently it is possible to use the perspective and liquefy tools to get around blur of the lens on edges.

@KemoNine that's my hope. I was aware that I was a bit tired, but i didn't realize how much until I did end up taking the break. Its nice to work with a clean slate.

So behind work, but still took 2 weeks off. 2 weeks of no art, nothing creative. Just reading and gaming and absolutely minimal amount of social media. Bad news is, I am even more behind work than I was. The good news however my brain is functioning again and I am actually feeling excited about doing work again. Missed mastodon. :)

First edit backlog of the week is coming out in a couple of hours.
