Ferri Study #3 by HoustonSharp Ferri Study #3 by HoustonSharp
Hey guys, sorry i haven't been posting much lately. I started my second term at Art Center a little while ago, and have been piled with homework ever since.

Here is a quick study I did about a month ago. Once again studied from Roberto Ferri's work. You can see his amazing oil paintings and pencil drawings here: robertoferri.net

Hope you like it! Thanks for looking.

Don't forget to join me on facebook! I show a lot of sketches and WIPs on there (i definitely post more art on facebook than I do here on dA), and talk about a bunch of nerdy stuff: [link]

thanks again!

Amazing Painting, do you use Painter or Photoshop, or something else. I am trying to find the best software to get a painterly effect. :clap: :clap: :)

Thanks for that, It is amazing how you manage to get that oil painting feel. I hope you don't mind, but you have inspired me to have a go at some Ferri studies myself, I'm not in your league, but it is the type of art I really love :) :clap:

HoustonSharp Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2013
Sure thing, and thanks.  I just used some brushes that had a very good flow to them (that basically acted like oil paint to begin with), and was careful not to over-blend anything; brush strokes are good to see sometimes.  

And i'm glad, definitely go for it.  His art is great; i wish his type of art was more popular in the U.S. as opposed to this "modern" art stuff.

Thank you, you have made my day, and thanks for the advice :):)

I love the old masters, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Verrocchio etc. and Ferri is the modern day equivalent, and you are the digital equivalent. :clap:

PS  I love your traditional stuff too.

Well the original is Roberto Ferri's work.   This one here is just a master study that I painted to learn from Ferri's stuff.
