Four quick and free sketches with different tools/ settings, together on the same sheet ...
I hope You like them even if they didn't come to an end ...

By clicking on the image You may enlarge it and see details a little better ...

Great work Cesare, and great idea.:)

Thank You, dear Jules! Actually the sketches were just a pretext to use that title ...:D

Dear Sandra, they were just two experiments on quite different different skin tones, an experiment of a quick, one layer watercolour imaginary view and a check on the fill tool ... Thank You! With AR3 there are so meany possibility I'm almost either blocked or cannot stay too long on the same work to finish it before I test something else (and eventually throw it away .....) Thank You!

All fine exercises Caesar, sure makes for a scrupulous salad. I love 'em. :)

Nice, Caesar.

A tasty salad, my friend. If, however, you decide to have less "salad dressing" on the female subjects, you may have to migrate this work to the After Nine thread! (I personally prefer my dressing on the side when having a salad :p......and I'm talking about restaurant salads, of course!)

What amazing and beautiful paintings for being quick sketches, Caesar! I love how you've incorporated them all in one...what a really nice touch!

These certainly display the wide range of your abilities.

I like it. Reminds me of a story board, all it needs is the speech bubbles :D

Thank You, dear Kahlid! I'm glad my variety of subjects and styles keeps Your interest alive towards my entries, my friend!

Thanks a lot, dear Oriane! With limited time and patience, I start thinking I'm more apt to sketch books than to monumental works I think ...:D

I woudn't exclude to do what You're suggesting on the After 9 o'clock section, dear Jbyrjbyr1. Thank You!

Thank You dear Eileen! I tried to have the sight follow a certain path from the first to the last sketch, as far as I could at least.

A very kind compliment, dear Doc! Thanks!

... or it may be one of the posters of our traditional storytellers through the centuries, from middle age time down to the still surviving Sicilian puppets theatre. In this case no speech bubble is needed, just a song telling the story and a stick to progressively indicate where the song verses are illustrated. Thank You, dear Evart!

Great pictures Cesare, all so very well painted:)

01-12-2010, 11:27 PM
Thank You, dear Kathy!

Dear Jbyrjbyr1 You may have a look to the salad with dressing aside, maybe a little too spicy ... :D

nice color sketches Cesare.

Thank You, dear Jules! Actually the sketches were just a pretext to use that title ...:D

Thort so :p

Thank You, dear Albert! Among many other great feature additions and improvements, colours in AR3 are just fantastic!
What I didn't find so far was some useful rougher effects of the sharp and soft blender knife of AR2.5, but it's not an issue anyway.

Dear Jules, I'm glad I got You laughing. :p

Very tasty salad, Ceaser, full of creative vitamins...:-)

Sincere thanks for Your very kind comment once again, dear AT-TA!
