    This looks interesting. The deadline is good for me since I want to enter another (has nothing to do with ConceptArt.org Forums) competition that finishes on May 1st!

    elephant: Yeah you're right, something got lost in the translation, I might have to work more on the thumbnail and blow it up later on.

    i dont know if pixeltuner uses this method but in this thread sparth describes an interesting workflow for making quick composition thumbnails using the custom shape tool in photoshop.

    maybe it can help you

    Coool brain, ashess: I can make a short tutorial on that. I actually started a livestream channel today, but Procaster crashes on me so I need to fix that first but then I can do a short video on that if you guys like.

    Daflom: I don't do it with custom shapes, haven't even used it but I'll check it out, looks interesting

    EDIT: I checked out Sparth's method and it's a bit more structured then what I do and there's a bit more work in creating the shapes I think. There's a bit more of a random element in what I do at first

    Quick sketch.

    I've never done anything underwater so this looks kinda bad. I'm not really sure how to make the colours work, I'll probably try to fix these a bit more and then go for a totally new piece when I figure out them a bit more. I kinda want to do an interior though, this looks so... normal.

    Ok guys here's the thumbnail tutorial vid, it's actuallly my first one ever so be gentle. My computer had a bit of a problem with capturing the screen being a bit slow while painting but I hope you get something out of it.

    And if you like it, by all means share and spread the word.

    It's in two parts:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odCGW...xBi1s4Rw_KHmM=

    EDIT: And here's the image from the tutorial, it's a bit small at times on the vid.

    PixelTuner thanks a lot for the vids, i watched the first part and i learned a lot from it. Very valuable stuff.
    Watching those vids plus the link of Sparth posted before by daflom made my week (maybe month) in terms of learning cool stuff.

    Cheers.

    Agreed! Totally! Same here.(except, I watched both the parts )

    @Pixelturner: Thanks for you effort to help dude. I guess, now you are famous enough to remove "tuner vs turner" from your signature

    Just wanted to say that I found your workflow super interesting and useful. I have been using Alchemy some time now, but never tried to create such a brainstorming sheet of thumbnails. It's a great compositional tool. Consider creating a new sketchbook just for that, I am sure many people will find it very helpful. Thanks a lot for sharing Pixeltuner.

    Hahaha, thx for the love guys. Glad you guys got something out of it
    It's just the normal swatch indeed. I used Nox's circular thing for a while but it doesn't really matter since I pick all my colours with the HSB sliders.

    Thanks Albino, much appreciated and the pleasure was all mine A sketchbook solely for this eh? 'Pixeltuner's book of thumbs' It might be a good idea, considering the positive feedback I'm getting on this.

    EDIT: Done. Let's see if it catches on
