I thought Diles idea of a paintover thread was a very good one, and thought of all the good ones Id seen but could no longer find. Venger Javier P and Sone1 alone had done tonnes i wish I could look at again. and it seems a shame those things get lost in the pile.
So maybe if you liked one, put it in here, and I wont have to search all over the place!
heres some i remembered; i cant find vengers ones but ill get em...
Javier P for Pavel and theGiffman
Benjaminba for Dwilliams
venger for rob_curbishley

You'll still struggle with the cool feeling though (or I know I do)
The thing is to try not to detail everything in greyscale as you'll probably end up painting on top of it on a separate layer.
I've never conquered colouring greyscale well...

Fantastic thread velocity, I have waited for one like that for a long time- I have a folder with the best crits and p/o's that I could find, but unfortunately I don't know most of the artists. I'll dump them here and maybe people will be able to attribute them (sorry!!) I would like to give credit.
1 Andrew Sonea(?)
2 This was fantastic feedback to a fightscene!
10 I don't know who did the PO
11 This was in response to someone young just starting off as an artist, afaik.
14 This was a very interesting critique on a children's book illustration
16 Don't know
17 Don't know
I believe that this is the same artist doing the PO that also did the fight-scene at the bar above.
This one if JeffX's feedback to a traditional painting.
Wow great thread!!! Best thing I've seen on CA in a while. I'm also super happy that one of my images was posted here
I've done a number of paintovers over time for various people...there's something very fun about doing them and it's a great feeling knowing you can help people. I actually had a thread of my own dedicated to paintovers, but I kinda abandoned it suddenly because I was/am dealing with depression...maybe one day I'll get back to it.
Anyways, here's a few I found on my computer that I've done in the past (some of these are really old and done when I was more of a beginner, so may not be very helpful!). I feel bad posting these after seeing those Greg Pro ones haha! The one with the dude lying down I tried to remove from my post but it's still there...weird. Anyways, it jsut was explaining how his strokes were laid down vs what direction his strokes should have gone.
