@nnnnnnnadie Perhaps check out Stanford professor BJ Fogg’s Tiny Habits book or youtube content, info on great advice on how you can easily design new habits you want, and the interaction between behavior, motivation, ability and prompts. Also, the Streaks app in ios is really motivating and fun way to keep daily habit tracked and see as completed, which has gamification element to your habits. I hope that helps.
My first submission to a Proko challenge. I tried to play with saturation and texture which was really fun. Done partly from a photo reference.
Here's my submission! I have barely done any digital painting but thought I would try it for this challenge. Definitely had some difficulties with the trees so any critique on that would be great!
My first submission as well, Felix Jaeger- fantasy hero, warrior taken from the Warhammer lore. Enjoy!
As soon as I saw the subject of this challenge, I was so excited that I immediately started to work on it. Designing color and light is probably one of my favorite things in the painting process, so making this piece was a pure pleasure. I must admit that I'm pretty happy with how it turned out ;) Good luck everyone!
Here's my entry, a tractor I found in a field on a really bright sunny day. Painted in gouache (4" x 6").
Hello! I decided to use this opportunity to illustrate a scene from Little Women. "Jo's only answer was to hold her mother close, and, in the silence that followed, the sincerest prayer she had ever prayed left her heart, without words; for in that sad, yet happy hour, she had learned not only the bitterness of remorse and despair, but the sweetness of self-denial and self-control, and, led by her mother's hand, she had drawn nearer to the Friend who welcomes every child with a love stronger than that of any father, tenderer than that of any mother." - Little Women, Chapter 8. I learned a great deal from this, and allowed myself to go outside of my comfort zone and actually flick paint around. This was done entirely with gouache and acrylic. Thank you for the opportunity!
Having heard about this challenge, I had to come rushing. Not only because Marco’s work and teaching is amazing, but also because I certainly struggle with keeping things loose and not stiffly detailing everything. Here is a small watercolor and gouache painting of a place I stayed at when I volunteered in Spain a couple months ago. Although there is still quite some rigidness, I did my best to at least keep everything other than the house, which is the main focus, looser. I focused on emphasizing the local colors and capturing the shadow on the house, a result of a bright, sunny day. And no, I did not paint this outside, still got to tackle the fears but I am inspired to try this summer. If someone wants to keep me (virtual) company, feel free to message!
Portrayal of the inside of an approximately 100-year-old toy train car, using a combination of traditional media, digital paint, and further digital photo manipulation. My work process started with a scrap of paper where I had been wiping excess paint and texture gel. I took a photo of the inside of an antique toy train and used water soluble Caran D'Ache crayons to duplicate the image on the textured paper. I further developed the image in Sketchbook and a photo editing program, creating what I hope is a mysterious, storied, vintage slide film look. I hope you enjoy it!
I painted a small trail from life between my working shitfs. It took 1 hour, and i used watercolour paper with watercolour and gouache (2.5" x 3.5") I really enjoyed the session when playing with texture.
My lower back strated to hurt a couple of days ago, so I had to stay home a little bit - I did get to paint though, so here is my entry :))
