    Paint 2 Pixel - Update 12-09-2014

    After lurking on this forum for years, finishing my fine arts degree and getting a wacom, i've decided to join in on the digital painting fun. I've just started to make some things in painter, fiddlin' around trying to get the hang of things.
    It's not near some of the stuff that on here, but i'll have a go at it

    Inspiring stuff all round this forum. Hope to improve as i go. It's great fun and minus the white spirit. ;P

    Here are some starters. Lacking some color depth, but not to shabby for a first try IMHO. Feel free to CC

    Tried to do a portrait of my GF. made the picture this morning.

    Good practice, but dunno if this is getting anywhere

    made the top one first, got flustered and started over again. Will see if i can finish the second.

    Boughed myself a sketchbook to do some studies and drawings on the go. Before i just used a envelope to draw on or any other piece of paper for that matter. Got myself some conte's too.

    Made 2 studies the girl is a studie from a clothing commercial that was pin the paper. I liked the perspective.

    The portrait is a friend of mine used the a photo as ref.
    I tend to get to focused on details shape of eyes, nose, mouth it has to be that persons, i think if i make it simpler and more straight forward, the portraits will improve. and i need to be more focussed on the freaking hight of the eyes and placement of the mouth. Or maybe he just has such a face, what can i do about it...
    Well thats why i got a sketchbook i guess.

    C&C are more then welcome, Thanks for your time.

    After the whole day watching CRTL-Paint tuto's i did a first try at Photoshop just to fiddle around a bit.


    it works different then Painter. Dunno what i like best. more options in PS but painter has that Painterly feel to it, with PS lacks. (unless somebody knows how to use PS in a painterly manner?) For now i'll just use both i guess.

    Prefab brushes are like cheating though.

    Well here is my mech-FXgalore-robot-sketchup. The mech sucks though it's dull and bland.
    Try to work as the crtl-paint tuto's explained. Didn't get all the things right, but not a bad effort after spending whole day watching tuto's with a hangover

    another one, did this one in PS and it shows.... i need to use some other brushes to do some painting. the drawing part went pretty well and isn't too bad but the color part looks like some plastic overlay. I guess i need to practice some more

    Also made a Flip Horizontal shortcut ^^ very frustrating... but Ooh so necessary.
