    Baron, it's coming very well. I enjoy this painting. By the way, since you're nearly finishing, are you going to paint other ideas?

    Nickillus - Cheers, Nick, you could be right I don't order by warm / cool but what I normally do is make sure my palette has the complementary extremes somewhere in it, and if I need to specifically use warm / cool I'll first look at the rough position according to value and then make a more conscious choice of hue, say, orange or blue.

    Brashen - Don't worry, I'm always like this - rush everything in the first few days then wish I hadn't as I see the other entries take shape...

    Tonic - Thanks. Yep, I plan to do at least one more

    I love complementaries. They're such a great 'get out of jail free' card, in a fix. Whatever it is you do - it doesn't half work well. I think you just have a great eye for colour, which is what is behind all this glory. I went to Woolworths before they closed down to see if I could get one. They'd run out, dammit. Can't get one anywhere.

    Rush?! No - it's sheer speed! It's a real asset Si. Gives you the chance to do so much more. Use that gift - Do some more. They'll be just as superb. I'll put money on it.

    ah yes its all becoming clear now and I guess the thing that is hatching out is probably not a herbivore...really like the human relationship aspect - such is the way of the world caught up in our little worlds we dont notice the bigger picture until ouch! I can almost see the creatrures betantacled form apprearing beneath the stretched skin of its egg case and its giving me the heebie geebies - quick you fools lookup before its too late!. Great work!

    Nickillus - Cheers, Nick, I think we're both more confident of the other's skills than we are of our own Anyhow, I slowed down a bit - haven't even thought about art today. Back to it at the weekend though.

    graphicgolem - Cool, glad you like it

    Spent a couple of hours more on it. I'll likely finish it tomorrow and then I'll need to start thinking of another...

    Excellent texture.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    You're already finished with this one? Damn. I've barely even started on mine.

    Anyways, the textures are amazing.

    I'll maybe start another one next week although I see the CGSociety challenge has begun so not sure which to go for. This theme appeals more but... I don't know.

    Inspiring and looks great! : )
    I hope you do another one--I would love to see what else you conjure up for this theme and your process.

    Another beltingly good image Si.
    Can't you do a stinker now and again to make the rest of us feel like you may be human after all?
    Fantastic.

    Hey - You're a fast working guy. Do both challenges, but don't forget to show your work on the other one here too. Sound good? Does to me.

    this may be too much to ask but.. would you mind posting a picture of how you make up your palettes.. I'm been trying to figure it out today but I'm not sure I'm getting it.. are you just doing scales of value in different hue/ saturation ? anyway thanks a lot for sharing your thoughts on your process !

    anyway great first piece ! i obviously love the colors .. also where in England are you located ?

    keep it up!

    GriNGo, hala, Liffey - Thanks

    Nickillus - People will start thinking I'm a competition junky, like I'm desperate for them prizes It's actually because I tend to work better given a topic than if I have to think up my own - I can't handle too much leeway! I'll have a think - cheers, Nick!

    Dile_ - Sure, I'll post a screendump later. BTW - oop North, Lancaster

    MurdokX - Heh, thanks! Mm, the CGSoc one is a tricky subject this time so if I tried to rush I think I'd fail massively.

    Hive_minD - Thanks, appreciated

    petitemistress - Thanks, glad you like it. I altered the woman's eyes but not the neck / head tilt. Reason is I wanted to stay with ArtRage (which doesn't have cut / paste) so unless I was going to repaint I'd need to export to Painter. I know what you mean, though, it looks like she's been sleeping funny to say the least...

    Dile_ - bascially I set up my palettes like this. In Painter, paint (or load up) your image then on the Color Sets palette choose Create Color Set From Image. Then adjust the size of the cells, remove the borders and order by LHS (Level then Hue then Saturation)

    Then I screen grab the colour set and load it into ArtRage as a reference. Then colour pick from the reference. You could load it in as a palette but then I think you'd not have your full colour wheel on screen.

    That's useful info Si.
    Thanks for sharing that.

    The closest thing I've done to that in Painter was when I wanted a muted palette in a hurry for a viking image once. i picked a suitably misty forest landscape and made a custom colour set from it, using it particularly in the background. Worked really well. haven't done it since though - for whatever reason, I can't name.

    Yep, that's what I do sometimes. Grab one (or more) photos of the ambience and colour scheme I'm after, maybe add a few splashes of my own colour then turn it / them into a colour set. Sometimes I've appended to a colour set to give a bigger range but often I find the default number of colours is OK.

    Interesting on the colour palette stuff. Maybe this isn't the place for it, but did you know you can do a similar thing in Photoshop? Paint up a colour pallete, or load in an image that has the range you want. Convert that to indexed colour, then Image, Mode, Colour Table. The resulting table can be saved as an .act file which can be loaded up in the swatches menu.

    Hey thanks Baron just what I needed to get as colour scheme going. For those GIMP users out there (Im probably the only one ahem) you can make a cusom pallete from an image too - although it cant be sorted in the same way as in Painter.

    Mind made worlds.
