I was going to do a self portrait but it wasn't turning out so I decided to finish up the Orc portrait instead. Took a lot of time but it's finished. I'm going to try and finished all the WIPs I said I would and dedicate the rest of November to master copies and some Loomis/Bridgman/Hogarth/Posemaniac/etc...
I feel so stupid, haha. I just had a happy accident in photoshop.
I never hear anyone mention this so I thought I'd share for any nubs who don't know. I always knew about the Image > Mode> *list of different types of colour modes here* but I never knew that you could get the colour pallets from the colour picker.
I was already pretty good at picking out colours on the regular H setting, but sometimes I was limited by it. Now I can just switch it to a different setting and alter or get the colours I need. This just made photoshop feel a little more traditional for me. How come no one mentions this ever?
Also: Lab and CYMK are pretty much for photography, but I'm sure you can get some use out of Lab.
haha i really like the first images of the bust. that is exactly what happens to me when i try to start a pic from refernce the first 3-4 tries wind up looking like aliens haha.
cool stuff though, your paintings are coming out nicely and the colors are good in the study you're working on. Id just make sure to keep flipping the canvas to make sure everything is lining up and making sense to yah.
Do not, ever, under any circumstances, not have fun.
Having some difficulties with the Loomis one. I've always had this problem and I've tried and tried to fix it, but I can't figure it out. It always gave me troubles when I went to make Orthographics for 3d junk. I can set up the lines but I have a hard time keeping lined up or in proportion. Can anyone give me some advice? This has been plaguing me for 6 years.
Also, any advice for getting the right colours in mastercopies?
