Love that group on facebook! . This is a real sweet speed paint! I am curious how that '' 3d effect '' is done or whatever it's called. I've been curious for a long time now, I see it in artwork sometimes. Do you just paint those colors in or is it some effect layer?

Hey Mrkolsyrad! Thanks for the reply. This was done in photoshop. That 3d effect is done after you finished painting. You "copy merged" all layers, paste it on top, and then double click on that layer for accesing "layer styles". Then you uncheck the R (red) channel of the layer. You return to the canvas and you will no changes. Next, you can warp a little the layer or use the "lens correction" option in the filter section. You will notice the 3d effect now on the canvas. You can tweak it to make look like you want. Well, hope this will help you!
You've got a really cool style and that study is well done, I'd like to see more work.
Cfhhunt, Palladium! Thanks guys, really happy to be part of this.
A little bit of color now, A study I did a year ago, from the movie the shining, and a Frankenstein's monster process. I watched Sycra's youtube channel on color theory. It was very informative, I am a little afraid of painting in color, I think I'm all over the place.
I will keep posting! I have a lot of work done, and a lot to be done. Thanks for the support!
This is your best stuff yet, I like your refined work. My favorite is the Breaking Bad poster, that's a cool style.
Thanks man, actually those are old things I did. I'm painting a lot in black and white, mostly rough sketches, trying to learn composition among other things. I really admire Jama Jurabaev, you should check out his facebook page, his sketches are amazing.
Ill leave you the link:
Jama is a beast man, I follow him over at deviantart. I also watched Sycras videos on YouTube lol. His color tutorials are good and they work as a great entry point into color, but he himself states it isn't realistic. Here's a exercise you should try, I do it still. Take any photo, open it in photoshop, go to the color menu, use the color picker in the brightest area of any object within the photo. Notice where the color is in the color menu, without looking away from the color menu, drag the color picker into the darker regions of that object, notice what happens to the color. It will get more saturated and of course darker, sort of in a diagonal path towards the bottom right hand corner of the menu. It will also change hues slightly. Depending on if the lighting is cool or warm, the shadows will usually shift in the opposite direction. This was something Ive learned to do from watching a gnomon dvd called color and light. Hope this wasn't too confusing, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask me man
Damn, I love your stuff. Keep feeding us!
