Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
Did a hand study today, picked a random relatively difficult handpose for me to do and fired away at Painter.
This is my second go at doing a digital sketch polely in painter, used a reference from Sarah Simblet's Anatomy for the Artist and used it to initially plot out the reference points, then tried to render as much of it as possible from my anatomy knowledge which is still lacking considerably.
Threw down the blocking thick and fast then started to pull the colors from the canvas to cut out the image negatively - I find I work the fastest like this.
About an hour or so, still trying to master my tools of choice in painter 9.
looks great man, i love the textures you used.
Good work i suck at giving crits this early in the morning (cough* afternoon cough).
So..., only asspat from me
very nice. only crits are the thumb.. the nail is faaar too wide, and you have some foreshortening problems (the contour that curves toward the joint). the pollicis (muscles massed at the base of the thumb) are quite pronounced, and are a little inconsistant with the rest of the piece (very smooth and shiney instead of sketchy and textured). hope this helps, i still think this piece is quite promising
i loved this!! very traditional looking.
