So...PSDTUTS had a contest...I decided to enter...(still waiting on the results)
Anywho, I really need to thank the community because I was reading through threads and saw how it is best to paint in big chunks then woooork my way to detail. This way is so much more rewarding to me!! I never understood how to "work up to detail" I still need practice but man...it takes such a long time. Something else I started doing was using a hard brush to make the final details. Fun fun...I just hate when the hard lines make a hard contrast.
Note, the only line work I used was for the characters and that was just for the gesture of the pose. So perspective is off and what not...I was under tight time restrictions which is no excuse...BFA in illustration and I am running away from perspective...the shame.
Anyway...Let me know what you all think. I may or may not go back to this... not right away anyway. Other projects for clients to finish, but what ever I learn here I will take into future works. =) thanks.
(I have like 5 different layouts of the type and that abused triangle.)
