lowpolymatts sketchbook--->21st November
Ok here goes...gulp...first time for everything I guess. I started doing a daily paint in Photoshop last week on Thursday or Friday...cant remember. Anyway, they're from movie reference....I wanted to do these to get me back into painting in Photoshop. It's been ages since I've done anything like this so bear with me as I'm still learning my way round. I'm also trying to keep the times down to below 2 hours per piece. This is about me learning shape tone and colour, not about intricate details...not for now anyway.
Anyway, please help me on this journey...constructive crits would be appreciated.
First one, about 1 hour at lunch at work. Colours are a bit off, but the form is fairly correct.
Not happy with the face on this one at all. I quite like the coat....and I should never have gaussian blurred the background. I may rework it a bit...
1 1/2 hour Photoshop
1 hour Photoshop. Really really enjoyed this one and kept it as loose as possible. I think it shows....this one's my favorite so far..
I'm still working on this one, Photoshop crashed on me last week when I was doing this so I wanted to have another go at it. Here's my second attempt, it's not right, but it is better than the first. I'm going to keep working on this one....
EDIT: Same image as above but I moved his nos and mouth up a bit with the clone tool...I knew the nose was too long, I think this is an improvement....its still not finished mind you...
Anyway, that's my first installment....
Thanks to my wife for all her support......*kiss*

hey nice work there. looks like youre well on your way. Id recomend trying to use some other brushes aswell as the one youre using. painting with the normal round photoshop brush has a tendency to give a painting without any sharpness to it.

Thanks Stewart One,
Yep, I know I need to use other brushes. I've been trying out various things recently within painter and photoshop and artrage and opencanvas, but I always seem to fall back on Photoshop. I am still at that ' just paint it' stage and I guess not confident enough to venture into multiple brush types. I know I have to at some point and I will do as soon as I can...
I'd be interested to see what brushes people lean towards in photoshop...anyone?

hey, nice paintings. I am kind of jealous, i wish i could keep my paintings loose but i am so used to painting pretty flat and structured. It is so hard to change my method. I will keep checking to see how things are going for you, and hopefully i will learn something. Thanks and drop by the sketchbook sometime.

Leon: Unfinished by a long way...
Not happy with this one, needs a lot more working into...the whole idea of this was that I did one each lunchtime to get back into painting but im noticing that these are taking a bit longer to get to that roughed up stage. I'm going to have to rethink what I'm doing and see if I can come up with another approach. Some of these are just too much to do in an hour.
It's given me a headache and its nowhere near right.
Still, there you go. Maybe it's time to do some sketching stuff...
