Material studies. by Suzanne-Helmigh Material studies. by Suzanne-Helmigh
Phew this was great practice :)
On 28th of November I had my mind set on finishing 100 studies of materials. Never knew I was able to finish.
I learned so much about materials, reflection, lighting, colors etc. I would recommend such a practice to anyone.
I started saving the references somewhere halfway so if you would like to have that file for your own practice purposes go to this FB link, click options and than download

Thanks to these studies, I was able to paint these:

It's awesome! I come to check this practice more than once, because I really like how you finished them and even the overall composition of all :) If I can ask, how do you like to paint materials and textures? Do you prefere to use a lot of customized brushes or do you prefer to use more common brushes painting closer to the traditional way with a bit of custom ones only? Keep these good practices!

I only needed about 5 different ones for all of these together.
I see no point in making it harder to keep with one brush, it was all about being able to paint the material in as little as time as possible without loosing the information of it. :) As long as it's all hand painted, with whatever type of brushes (crunchy-spray-soft etc) it's a great excersize.
It's a skill needed even when doing photobashed images in other projects, this way you can fix materials by painting them because this study teaches you how materials work :)
(lol this was more talk than you asked for XD )

Perfect!Thank you for taking your time answering me. It's an issue in which I have no fixed habits, sometimes I try too much brushes and don't find which I want, and another I use one or two, and later I notice I should have used more, hehe, so I am trying to review this kind of exercise. And yes, definitely it would help with a lot of kind of works, from colorful illustration to realistic photobashing. Thank you, Suzanne! :) Congrats for all your nice work.
