Quick update for the night. Someone said that the figure looked like he was sleeping...and I could totally see that...so I changed him up a bit. I'm in a "not-so-happy-with-it" sort of stage.
WAIT...WAIT..WAIT. Hold the presses. I just glanced at my jpg version of the image is it's all crap...What the hell? What's going on here. As you can see tonight I just repainted the figure and now...when I flatten the image I get all these weird 'brush' texture stroke crappola.
Anybody got a clue as to why this is happening. I just tried to resave it and again - same thing. it looks find in Painter..but crappy in photoshop.
Please help. Am i going to have to go back a day in painting.
AztcFireFlower: Thanks man. Glad you like
rblitz7: Yeah...i like that one too. i have a painted version somewhere.
Jens: Thanks for the heads up. Yeah..looking back I can definitely see that I'm skimping on the hands part. I'll have to keep an eye on that. Thanks though
So. What does everyone sketch with in Painter? Right now I've been switching between the palette knife and artist oils. I'm having a problem sketching with them, though, because everything looks very "dabbed" looking.
Here are a couple for today. Still working on the Egyptian story. The concepts here are for a warrior. He's lifeless, hence the ash-like grey skin.
here's what that finish Jenny piece came out like. She's actually on display right now at my university's alumni show. it was kind of neat getting some nice prints of my digital work and then framing it.
more egyptian warrior studies: in my story there are two lost warriors that our hero meets up with, this one being the taller, stronger of the two. Essentially they are both dying and their bodies are taking the toll. The bottom sketch is of the story's hero, who is in a temple that's filling up with water.
