Here are some memory studies I've been trying.

Heres a Sargent study I did. The second panel is from memory afterwards and the third is corrections I did after I opened the original. This exercise really helps; You see all the things you just don't pay attention to when copying ans going on autopilot.



photo study of the same thing





for these I just didn't bother showing the second step.

Demon Lizardman - Sure. Here's what I have in CA.org - conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?182840-Help-Me-Get-Better

Now here's some stuff from imagination I did. These were for the CGhub and CA challenges in the past few weeks. This is the stuff I plan to post more often.

More still life I did a few weeks ago. The human bust is really getting to me in terms of difficulty. On the first one I tried natural daylight and the dim light made it very hard to capture the lights vs darks. On the other three, I started with line to help block out the shapes, then went to values & colors. Its way more easier to go that route then to go straight into blocking in shapes.

Rally enjoyed browsing through this, keep up the awesome work. Also really love the idea of doing a study, repainting it from memory and then doing corrections.

catfist - Thanks. I needed to find ways to apply my studies to my personal work and this seems to be a good exercise.

Hey Vatteh, These latest portraits are looking great! I like the idea of those studies where you show the version from you memory and the corrections afterwards, very interesting to look at. Keep up the good work!
