Study: Living Room by memod Study: Living Room by memod
Phew, dooone. I swear I'll be dreaming of carpets tonight. But hey, this was fun. Have been wanting to do a study of our living room for a while now, because I love how the sunlight bounces around in it.

As a reference for this I used a picture that I just quickly snapped with my cellphone. I used only standard hard and soft round brushes here. No colour picking off the reference, no layer or brush blend modes. Only in the very end I did a few subtle colour tweaks on the whole painting, that's it.

Hope you guys enjoy it....I did...and should really do more studies like this. Tell me what you think!

Study: Living Room, amazingly realistic painting by `memod. The light filtering through the curtain and the reflections throughout the room are simply beautiful! ( Featured by alicexz )

Beautiful lighting and warmth mood... getting homesick for just looking at this artwork.

I'm sure if you took a picture of your living room it would be nothing special, but to paint it like this made your living room awesome!!!!!!!!! I like that you kept it with simple brushes. A style that's very smooth and pleasant to look at. Great job.

Hey Mike, thanks so much =] The main reason I stuck to the basic round brush is also that I really wanted to challenge myself here, to try and paint as realistically as possible without relying on any custom brushes, textures or things like that. And it was fun :D

Haha! Until I saw the DD I really thought this was a photo xD I was all like "Yeah, it's pretty and all, but what am I looking at? Did he move around the furnisure or something?" Lol. What an amazing piece of art. To think people can even draw like this. Just, wow!

Haha thanks :D Well I guessss in thumbnail view it may be able to fool someone :D But I think it soon becomes apparent, that it is a painting =] But in the end it's still a study. I did have a reference...with the goal, of course, to use what I learn from these studies in my creative pieces as well =]

Thank you :aww:

O.O I'm always so jealous of people who can paint. I had to learn for school and I'm pants at it. I sew much better than I can illustrate.

But there is no need to be jealous =] You can learn to paint as well. It takes time and dedication, of course, but it is absolutely possible.
And see, I never learned to sew, except for a little bit at school waaaay back :D

My first impression was: Why is a stupid photo of a living room in the daily deviations?" Then, when I looked closely I saw that it was a painting. AN AMAZING PAINTING.
