Do you just do feedback for paintings?

No, no. I'm thinking of doing painting demos and stuff, not giving critiques. So I'm actually going to paint and draw stuff.

Or if you mean do I only do feedback for paintings, no. I can also critique drawings and stuff.

Or if you mean would I only give feedback on paintings on my thread, same answer as before. I'm fine with other types of art.

Okay, so I'm thinking of doing the livestream on Monday at 10 PM GMT+8, which is 10 AM EST. How's that for everyone?

Stream has ended, thanks for everybody who watched! If you're interested, here's the streamed videos: https://www.twitch.tv/runescaperian/profile

Unfortunately they won't make much sense without the chat, as I was explaining everything in there.

Here's some stuff I wrote down during the stream:

Hey Insanity,

Recently I've been doing some photo studies and did this one:

This is just a messy color placement:

I got rid of the woman and tried to do a landscape, but my distance was off. Cy recommended that I draw a grid.

And since you specialize in landscaping and such, I was wondering if you would please draw me a quick grid to demonstrate space? Cy told me you could eyeball it and draw a grid because you've had a lot of experience. :p

Thank you!

Heya Icy!

I quickly sketched out a grid for you, here:
QeVBpM2.jpg

A few tips for drawing grids:
-The first thing you should always do is establish the horizon line, which is your eye height. It's the line where your vanishing points converge, and separates the ground plane from the sky. The horizon line should also always be straight - you're getting confused because the photoreference you're using has a line of hedges that make it look like it's sloping downwards.
-The lines should always be straight. Whatever program you're using, it should have options to let you draw straight lines if you can't draw straight lines by hand.
-Horizontal lines should recede in terms of distance as they go back towards the horizon line, as far-off space is compressed. If you're confused, take a piece of grid paper and look at it from above - it should be a perfectly 2d grid with even spacing. However, if you start moving your eye level down to the paper's height, the grid's lines will start compressing and receding into the distance.
-It's usually useful to establish vanishing points where the vertical lines will converge to, especially if you need to do linear perspective. In linear perspective, the amount of vanishing points indicate what kind of perspective it is - one point, two point, or three point.

Here's one where I did my vanishing point with the polygon tool in Photoshop. There's a lot of different ways to do this, but this is how I usually do it, since it's fast.
