    Newborn - Baron's Birthing Brouhaha

    FINAL IMAGES. I'll be submitting the first one only

    Here's my WIPs so far. All ArtRage. Not sure if this'll be my final or not. Plenty of time to do another anyhow.

    Unfortunately, after WIP 2 I made the woeful and asshat error of saving my ArtRage file as PSD, forgetting it would lose all my paint thickness info. Which it did, making blending pretty tricky from now on

    Aw Si. Is it worth taking one step back and redoing it to get it back? If it's going to liberate your brushwork, and knowing how fast you work . . . . .

    Looking wonderful, whatever file format it's in.

    That's a waste with PSD format, I would really love to see painting effects.

    Seeing more cocoon-things in background, I thought it would be nice to expand canvas horizontally a lot and paint a big number of them, so the viewer would think "Wow! What are these things?"

    Are you going to make cocoon's skin opaque or partially transparent? So we would see/imagine inside shapes.

    Keep in work, I'm sure you will do fine from painting side, I remember your DWIV entry and it was pleasure to look

    When did you start using lineart?!! - I don't think I've ever seen you do that before

    I'm not feeling this piece yet. There's something about the composition that feels uncomfortable - as if it's been cropped and were not getting the full picture. I think the idea has lots of potential though, and I don't doubt you'll turn it into something awesome!

    Nickillus - I thought of that, but I'll likely do another one for the final submission so I'll just plug away. I can get the paint thickness back by simply painting over what's there, but I need to cover it 100% or it will look scratchy. No worries, though, it's good practice using AR!

    Tonic - Cheers. Yep, I think I'll expand the canvas slightly. Can't do it too much because I'd need to reposition the main characters and because AR doesn't have lassoo / paste I'd have to repaint, and I can't be bothered

    pearlyking - Cheers, Bill. I hope so, it would be good to have you onboard

    Mythmaker - Good question, the answer being I've haven't really used line art before, but I like the pencil feel in AR so had a go And hopefully the compostion will sort itself out when I add a bit to the canvas and more fully define the background.

    Keep up with the tough crits, that's what's useful!

    Ooh yes. The pencil in ArtRage is really nice isn't it? Glad I'm not alone in thinking that. Go for it Si.

    OK, well I widened the composition as much as I could without having to repaint the figures and I think it looks a bit less claustrophobic now. Loads of fun detailing next.

    Your use of colour and tone always knocks my socks off, Si. Beautiful balance giving the feel of all sorts of textures and surfaces already. Magic.
