    Chris Noeth: Thank you!


    Janaschi inspired me to try some stilllifes of my own The friggin cloth moved every day! I need to do smaller ones where I finish them off in a sitting I think.
    Here's one I just finished, and some closeups.

    Awesum awesum stuff, really dynamic colouring and your paintings have this 'deliciousness' factor which I can't put my finger on lol.

    Just wondering with your role of being a texture painter do you do alot of personal photography for researching intimate details in various textures?

    DanielC: Thank you!

    Pandanus: Thank you very much!! I don't really do a lot of photography, we have a huge database at work and most of the ref is ready by the time I start working. However I think being a tex painter one ends up analyzing and splitting components of a reference a lot, which helps out when you do a regular painting too. For example if I am given a ref, I'll spend a large chunk of my time wondering what info to put in the color/diffuse map, what to put in the specular map and what to put in the reflection map, is there any subsurface involved? if there's any displacement and what is the intensity of it and how it affects the look of the object. Since I do shading/prelighting too I also think about things like fresnel contribution, balancing spec/reflection values, the contribution of the environment on the look of the object etc. So in the same way, when I try and paint something from imagination I apply the same through process- what is the form? if i place a light at so and so direction which areas would receive max light, is there any bounce light? should there be some translucency here, etc etc. I think besides composition/design/etc when you breakdown the look of your character/creature/weapon etc this way you tend to start incorporating more believable detail in.
    Sorry that was way too long winded.

    EvanCampbell: The feeling is very very mutual, you're awesome!Thanks Evan!

    chuck18mp:Thanks for stopping by!

    chiironiji:Thank you and I am super glad some of the steps helped. I'll post a lot more in the future.


    I recently purchased ZhangLu and Jason's awesome female portrait tutorial and have been practising a few heads from my imagination but I realised I need to supplement it with (lots) of studies from ref too.

    One from my head:

    and one from a ref, the gorgeous Noë.

    Beautiful!! Massive Black should seriously use these to help market their video--that one of Noë is stunning. A couple minor crits--the perspective of the lower lip in the first image looks slightly off to me, and perhaps the angle of her right (our left) eyebrow arch could be a bit steeper (unless she's raising her left eyebrow). The still life above left me gobsmacked, btw.

    Beautiful, beautiful work! Those two portraits you did from the Zhanglu video is beyond amazing. Especially the one of Noe, you absolutely captured her there. Love the added detail with her hair! Your digis are overall pretty damn advanced, it's a real pleasure to look at

    @Iridyse, interesting, interesting. Good helpful explanation . How long have you been at your texture painting job now?

    Really cool portraits, like that smokey style on the hair.

    courtyard: OMG they kindasorta did! http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=159052 wheee! But seriously, that video was superb. I highly recommend it to all. Especially to those who think they know something about portraits. She's raising her eyebrow, the lip is messed up though. Thanks!

    midknight523: Thank you!

    AsaB: Thank you! I started one of yours too and scrapped it because it wasn't turning out how I wanted Going to try again

    Chupacabra: Thanks! ( I hope to make it to the Euro workshop, would be so great to meet up!)

    bumskee: Thank you!! You need to update, I need my Min fix!

    Pandanus: Thanks! I totally went offtopic, ahahaha. I've been texturing for close to 2 and a half years now.


    Just trying some more master copies , trying to improve brush handling and texturing. I need to find a way to upload psds, any ideas?

    Crop of head and some stages. I'm falling in love with Rembrandt all over again. I usually don't like his women, I prefer how he paints men,armor,drapery and lighting. I loved this image though, I think it's his mother? I saw the image first in a book, that had more yellow tones which I liked much more so I am sticking to that. You can see the orig at http://www.royalcollection.org.uk/eg...t=405000&row=0 . I can't wait to start on the shiny embroidery!

    It's FAR from finished but I just wanted to upload something.
