NateShawArt: the sketchbook
Thanks for stopping by. I am totally brand new to digital media. Well kind of. I have worked with Painter a little but this past month has been the first time I've actually spent some time with the computer + art. Anywho, my first attempt at a full photoshop image with its accompanying thumbnail. I painted this skull from life. Initially I had a warm direct light on it with a little bit of cool ambient light all around. As the day wore on and the sun went down the cool light disappeared so a lot of the blues I was seeing (and liking) went away leaving only the warm light. This made the shadows deeper and blacker looking. I was trying not to use black at all but it happened.

Mr.Smile Thanks! I'll do that. I got a BA in Studio art at a school that only did traditional mediums so I have worked a lot in oil painting, pastels, water based ink, etching and litho. I worked this one just like I would have done a pastel piece. I have used Painter for doing cartoons and have experimented a little there. I did like photoshop a lot though.
Janos You are totally right, I was scared to do the bg. It was sitting on a black table against a white wall. More is on the way!

Those sketches are fantastic. I especially like the looser ones. Even the sketch for your digiskull up there.

Thanks, Pandahund! Gesture drawing is pretty much one of my favorite things to do. ever.
This is my puss in boots for this week's CHOW. It was rough going once I got it into photoshop. I wrangled with the colors the whole time. Eh, whatever, I need to work on my finishing skills (and drawing skills, and painting skills, and color theory skills, and design skills, and bow hunting skills.)
