    Beach Life Painting

    Enjoying the Santa Monica weather and getting some life painting practice. These were done with a Photoshop CS4, a Laptop,an Intuos-4 Tablet, two small foldable camping stools and a specially made black box with a hole in it. I sit on one stool and my box with laptop in it sits on the other to reduce glare.

    In this case my newly acquired/stolen:) custom brushes were a HUGE help. You can get them on my site www.shaddyconceptart.com under the DOWNLOAD tab.

    Comments and Feedback please:)

    The lighting and colors are great! The textures are very effective. The first one of the ocean is my favorite by far, I think the colors used to describe the water are fantastic. Great work!

    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    Brushes 4U:)

    Thanks Guys,

    My most current brushes are always available on my site under the DOWNLOAD tab. They are a "best of" stolen from Jaime Jones, Maciej Kuciara, Justin Oaksford and others. They were made on CS4 but should work for CS2, let me know if you have problems installing. ENJOY!

    Also just as a note, it is ALL about the brushes. Granted one needs some knowledge of painting and an hero to steal techniques from,The brushes are %50 of the game.

    Also if you anybody lives in LA we go on life painting trips every SUNDAY so shoot me an email (found on my site) and posse up!
