    Red face Linda Lisa's CG Paintings

    I wanted to post some of the new paintings I have done since I got a Wacom tablet.
    I hope you enjoy. Many of these I have used reference photos.
    You are welcome you visit my Deviant Art page in my signature for more information on any of my paintings or
    to view the high resolution images and see the refs that I used.
    All have been done in Photoshop CS3 with a Wacom Graphire 4.
    Hope you enjoy. Critiques are always welcome.

    Thank you

    ~Linda Lisa

    Many thanks to the amazing people that have let me use their stock for my Refs:
    asvison-stock
    mjranum-stock
    faestock
    tenderprey
    dazzle-stock
    empatia-stock

    -please x2 check last one's right cheek looks droopy. (horizontal canvas flip maybe)
    -please x2 check purple striped hair's sterno neck muscle. looks really cylindrical.
    -lost lady's wings seem dis-attached. (Too strong of a blur maybe)
    tattooed woman
    -please x2 check the sterno neck muscles also.
    -as well as her 7th & 8th vertabrae pronounciations. (She's pretty skinny)
    -please x2 check her scapulas, do they usually disappear like that. (She's pretty skinny )


    brilliant finishes. ooh goodness. I need to lay down and fan myself.

    Those are some mighty fine detailed digital paintings Very impressive considering you used a Graphire. Each of these must've taken quite a while to complete.

    Thank you very much. Yeah, they do take sometime. I don't know how other tablets would work. All I have used is this Graphire that I have. I really would like to try something better to see what it would be like.
    In the past all I used was a mouse until a friend on DA sent me his Wacom for Christmas. It is an amazing differece of the two. I really want to get somewhere with it so I have been pushing myself as hard as I can to learn and hope that I will be good enough to get better known.

    New painting "Temptation"

    Reworked "Lost" painting. Took off the lost scar, put more details on her face and redid the colors and more detail to the wings.

    So Linda, due to the quality of your work I would like to warn you about the copyright infringement possibilities. As of now some of your pieces are very very very close to reference (nice job on your part) however this falls into the realm of copyright infringement in some case. Such as the body on lost. if you were to
    1. sell that piece
    2. If the photographer that took the original found out

    You could theoretically be taken to court, and would most likely lose. which can come down to a 250,000 dollar fine per infringement (piece sold).

    What I would suggest is moving away from the original reference more. Don't copy so close. Use multiple sources of reference, even for the some figure. What you did with "match" is perfect! you took the guy on the right and made him all weird, (love that one)that is a great use of reference in a piece. I took the picture of lost and the reference into photoshop and matched them up (and horizontally shrunk it just a tad) and you can see the trouble.

    It may be hard at first but as of right now you are just copying other people. and I can tell you have more then enough skill to paint something for yourself.

    http://www.clickandcopyright.com/cop...fringement.asp
    the little section on derivative works kinda explains it.


    I hope you understand that I'm trying to help :<

    Thank you for your concern. I have talked with all the people that I used the ref photos from and I have become close to them. They all know where and what the paintings have been used for.

    You really should ask first and not think that I would have been in contacted with them before going over this and trying to ponit out things that you are unsure of in the first place. I taken all the steps that I should have taken long before I even started the paintings.

    As for looking to close...I really hope you are not saying that they are traced. I have to take so much time with some of the paintings and get the lines down just right and have to use a graph layout to make sure I can get the human form down before I start painting. That takes alot of time and I feel you are putting my work down for that matter and belittling it with the way you are writting for that part. As for ref work, I am just starting with the digitial painting work. I just got my fast tablet a year ago and some of these paintings are the first I have done. I am still learning for that matter.

    I do unterstand you are trying to help but you never asked me if I have even talked with any of the photographers about useing their stock. You just started to tell me that I am in the wrong. I am still working on finding a middle where I will not have to use ref photos as much. I however say and show that I use them...unlike many artists that do use them and say over and over that they don't as if it is a evil thing and make others feel as if they are not good enough because they have to have something to look at.

    On a side note some of the pictures where posted and I seen the photo and fell in love and in my minds eye I could see something come out of it. The stock came first and then the painting. The only one that I had an idea to what I was going to paint first was Temptation. I had the idea and then went looking for a ref that fit to my idea. The others I just loved and wanted to do something fun or tell a story with. How fun is it when you post your photo and then someone comes and uses it for a painting. The owners of the photos where happy.

    I understand your reaction but please understand that I said I was pointing out the "possibility" of copyright infringement. I never stated that you didn't have permission. I stated that you could "theoretically" be taken to court(which technically you still could be if you don't have a binding contract with the artist). I also never suggested tracing. I even submitted evidence that suggests other wise. The picture I posted shows that you probably didn't trace, due to the fact that I had to horizontally transform it, and that it has some noticeable differences.

    If you feel otherwise I suggest reading my post again

    I got a reply from Faestock saying that she's OK with there not being a link. So sorry about the snarky post. I hope you understand that it's nothing personal I'm just trying to help the community.


    my bad this time, but I still got my eyes out for any copyright infringers out there o.O

    The snarky comments and bad vibes could've all been avoided had you just pm'ed Linda Lisa and not make public accusations.

    I came in here to see if she'd updated to all her kick assery, but right now, it feels awkward. [And I'm just a fan].

    Copyright cops are cool.
    Linda Lisa was born cool.
    Please edit out the comments out of full respect, and just replace with 'teeth' marks marks. We all make mistakes [I've done so many], but we can always make amends.

    That said, your story telling and emotions still come through Linda Lisa.
    [Re-subscribed. For some reason the email subscription (notification) didn't come
    through on me end]. Gaaaah!

    Thank you all very much. I do agree the post need to be edited since it is known that I am not in the wrong and I just looks bad for my paintings to be shown with that. :/

    I have been emailed by other members just letting me know they feel bad about the comments and enjoy my paintings. That makes me feel alot better. Plus I just found out that my painting ' Match ' has been selected
    Ballistic Publishing's EXOTIQUE 5. I am super happy

    Thank you all again
