    You can find lots of comments on the book at Amazon link

    To be honest I havent spent much time with the book yet, I dont know about other books from Don Seegmiller, although there is a more recent Photoshop CS based version of his book. The book is full of common sense about values, colour, lighting... the same information you can find on tutorials here or elsewhere. The character design section is pretty good I have nothing similar on the subject. The step by step tutorials are very detailed however. I was personally interested into the methods, starting with a sketch, building up values, keeping the details and highlight for later stages, balancing different type of edges, etc (there's a good section on edges). Basically there's nothing in there that you cant find on the internet , but if you have to buy one book on digital painting that's probably one of the best choice.

    I also have digital texturing and painting. The first half is great , with big color plates of traditional paintings, and the author's views and comments on the colour and textural quality. This book is more about making textures as for computer games. However there is little consideration for design and creation of 'motifs', and the second half is boring imho, it's my pet peeve with books : one long tutorial split in several parts like : lets paint the tire texture, and now lets paint the head texture, etc. If you didnt like the subject of the tutorial to start with all the step by steps are boring. With Don's book however, each tutorial is a completely separate digital painting , and each is taken from the sketch to the finish, with different techniques (fur, hair, skin, paper 'texture'...). Anyway for general 'illustration' digital painting this book 'digital texturing and painting' is not very helpful. Don's is much better.

    Red face CHECK IT OUT! Girl...Painters Welcome

    This is the main character for a game I am working on. I'm an average sketch artist as you can see, but I Need help painting. I have potential but I am not even close to being where I need to be as a painter. I would like a rendition of what she could look like in color.

    Enjoy

    @zad

    hey very cool interpretation of that work..a bit colorless/monochrome but thats your style of working, and im not going to critisice otherman´s work so cool. Thanks man!

    (mehr nadelbälger? Hab ich doch glatt gemacht, willste noch mal eine kolorieren? wäre cool! Ich mag die erdigen Farben, passen gut zum Thema, wobei du dich hier auch stark am Film selbst hättest orientieren können. (Soll keine Meckern sein. Sei kreativ und nutze die zeichnung nur als sprungbrett, nicht als Zwangsjacke))

    @arri

    Thanks for your version of my vision (its quite a nice sentence). Cool colores and an good artwork from you. its good to make the drawing just a bases but not element of the finished works, so you didnt soil my work. thanks again

    Here's an old sketch, I can't remember if I already posted this but I was looking at it and I think it'd be cool to see someone do a nice early morning scene with come nice sun light flooding the room. Or you could make him underwater, ha ha, it's up to you. Have fun!!!

    Blue Severin's Spearman - WIP:
    *New Media Coloring Book Vol. 2*

    I'm really new to this, pretty much my first attempt at colouring, and it's taking an awfully long time. Anyone have any tips or pointers?

    Edit: Does the armour look better like this?

    doesnt seem too bad! actually, you would shudder to see my first attempt at coloring...>_> but this is really nice.

    the armor seems a sort of dull, matte color, which it probably shouldnt be, so you could make that shinier, along with the blade of that weapon. give more definition to the face and hair, color in everything else, and voila! picture perfect! youre on the right track, so have fun!

    Yeah start with really big brushes at high opacity, once you have your base down and say maybe a highlight and shadow or two then move on to a smaller brush and/or a smaller more opaque brush. If you don't like what it looks like so what? It shouldn't have taken you very long and now you can start over just as quick. It's a good way to plan.

    Other than that . . . read this tutorial, its really good. Should really help you with lighting etc etc.

    I do not see a problem here. The characters are copyrighted by the authors above. The artwork is from me. The lineart file is only for training purposes only.

    Does anybody see a problem in putting this into this thread?

    2) ONLY POST IMAGES THAT WERE MEANT FOR THIS THREAD OR ARE RECENT(WITHIN THE PAST 2 WEEKS).

    3) NO COPYRITED CHARACTERS OR FAN ART.

    4) IT'S RUDE TO DUMP LINEWORK WITHOUT COLORING OTHER PEOPLE'S WORK.

    God, I really must reply to this thread more frequently! This post should cover most of the images from the last time I posted. There has been some superb work on this thread, so if I haven’t given you a mention, don’t take it as a snub, I just REALLY have to get back to work!

    Without further ado:

    MeDrawUC: I love your version of Sanejack’s girl with claws. The colouring looks so delicate.

    Farmer, Discordant and Spacey all did brilliant jobs on dariocoelho's fairy thing.

    Idiot Apathy: Sorry I didn’t reply to this sooner, it was nothing personal, I’ve just been SEVERELY busy since Christmas (shameless plug: see my website for a detailed excuse). I hope you didn’t take my forgetfulness as an insult!

    Your work is showing consistent improvement with every piece, and seeing how often you contribute to this thread, that’s no small compliment!

    I love the queen of spades pic you did. The only thing that throws ii, as you noticed yourself, is the lack of teeth. Other than that though, you’ve done a great job. Very painterly.

    Spacey: I am so impressed with how far you’ve come in the last year (I still have that version of my crime scene that you coloured)! This is such a unique take on my thug. I never would have expected a version like this. It was funny, my brother looked at it and remarked that he liked it, then after a few seconds realised it was based on mine! Really nice work buddy.

    Sapphire: Very soft colours on that street scene. I like.

    Lock: I like what you did with the posh girl’s hair!

    Hopeless Shade: Impressive time to finish a pic! Just wondering, did you look at my original version, or was it just a coincidence that you picked that hair colour?


    Thanks guys, I'll post some more lines for you soon, promise!

    Lots of hair actually has a dark-blue sheen to it in many lights.
