    thanks so much for sharing this technique, I've never even touched custom shapes before this opens up a whole new world for me

    jockemon, thanks
    the best way to describe it is that you create masks for each big group of shapes you're making, and this according to where they're located too. foreground, middleground, background.when you paint on the selected shape surface, you then afterwards invert the selection in order to pain on the white areas. it is extremely fast and keep you in control of all the rendering.

    toby: i apologize, i haven't replied to your email yet.
    will try not to forget.

    howie: me neither. i was always refering to the custom shapes as some dumb stamping thing for fun, or something similar. i'm exagerating but there's a bit of truth.

    here's a piece for tonight.
    don't even ask me what it is, it just ... "is". hehe
    it's based mostly on custom shapes, with several overlay/darken/lighten layers and blends.

    hahaha it's all good. I'll just keep resending it until you do

    Love this recent one. I can just imagine it layered up and animated slightly as the camera pulls out. Awesome!

    I just got to playing around with this and wanted to figure out how to sample directly from a photograph or texture so I did a quick screencap tut.

    Attachment 1108783


    Basically:
    -Get image (I used one of sparths from his flickr, hope he doesnt mind ^^)
    -Desaturate, adjust contrast to 100%, brightness whatever you would like
    invert optional, for this one i did, ALSO I added an overlay gradient to help even out some of the values otherwise your texture may fade in areas you don't want
    -color range, pick whichever part of the image you would like to sample and it will select all corresponding values

    then just finish it off with pathing it and making a custom shape and VOILA! cheers

    This is exactly what I love about this art profession - there's always new things popping up to learn and so many other artists willing to help, share and nurture. Thanks Sparth you legend!
