    Unhappy i want my sketches to NOT loook flat-will pay

    Hi

    i dont know where else to go

    i need/want someone who wants/can help me with something.

    i can draw (i think) that is not the problem, the problem is that i can NOT use photoshop for coloring.

    not matter WHAT i do, my drawings (after painted in ps) come out FLAT.

    i tried many diff. settings (brush opacity, and set to multiply, color, overlay, balbla) it just does not blend well.


    what i want: for someone to send me Videos of them working on a piece (or what i send you) with audio explaining how they put those white (specualr) shiny points , where the light is shining without making the white parts, look like an accident or a bad brush stroke left by accident.

    what i'm willing to do: i will pay you or buy/order stuff online 4u

    please give me a price and let me know

    (loser blocke message: please PLEASE do not reply with tutorial links or a google link, i know your computer is faster than mine and that the revolution controller is OLD news for you, you are COOL. i can not compete with you.
    since i want to find a teacher it should not bother you that i am not l33t)

    this is not meant to scare ppl away, just to keep whoever is serious around.

    I think this thread should go in the paying jobs forum not in the sketches thread since you didn't attach a sketch. Which would be a good idea to let the one who will tackle this see how you draw. They'll need to know how 'far' you are. I'm gonna ignore the last bit of your message and say: Do look at tutorials, draw from life, draw from photo's to see how light and shadow interact and don't just depend on digital programs. Use crayons, pencils, paints, whatever.

    I am gonna give you a link. I think http://www.thegnomonworkshop.com/ has exactly what you want: a lot of talking and they film their workprocesses too.

    You can choose what dvd's you want. I saw a Feng Zuh one that lasted 3 hours and he doodled like 80 thumbnails only explaining why and how he's working.

    Well, Windex,
    Do you want to LEARN how to paint better, or just pay someone to just do it for you. If the former, post your work here, and let other members give you suggestions, or go over to the Painting in Photoshop thread in the Photoshop forum.

    If you simply want to hire someone, this thread needs to be moved.

    I am baffled as to why you end your post in such an insulting and childish manner. There is absolutely no call for that kind of attitude.

    Agree, this thread seems like it should be moved to paying jobs section. Wether its artwork done or tutor to teach you, its still a job request. And most especially since you dont want any other kind of help that would include links or suggestions (like the gnomon videos).

    Unhappy

    heh..wow replies, tnx
    Basically i need to "FAKE IT", that is right, all i need is to be able to FAKE IT

    Unfortunately i do not have the money to sit around and draw for 10 hours a day (which i would KILL to do) since rent does not pay itself. and for what i want to do, it will not require me to be supa awsome like alot of ppl here.

    the thing is i can draw (at least i think so, even though you can Always improve yourself blablal) and i can use the software (ps, illustrator etc) but i'm not able to use COLORS in PS for examaple. since in real life, when you mix blue and yellow, you get green, but in photoshop, i'm not able to do that.

    and i'm not able to do dark/light (even when using a tablet, pressure set to blabla) , since some ppl say NEVER use the smudge or dodge or etc. tools...

    that is why i'm stuck at one point and not making any progress.


    sorry if the last bit sounded rude/offensive/anti..., thanks for the help and the link, i've checkout tutorials and links and dvd's but what i think will improve my skill (eh) is watching another person do it.


    Cookiedough: tnx, i HATE that guy (he is an alien, ) you simply can not be that good. [actualy u kan, draw for 10 hours a day, EVERYday-other me talking]

    Listen man, it's not about tutorials, or even watching gnomon DVD's, and it's certainly not about brush settings or even photoshop or painter at all. The quickest way is to learn this is to look at a picture (a photograph, not a drawing) in which light is reflected in the way you're wanting to depict in your images. Pay special attention to where the light is coming from, and how it hits the surface. Pay special attention also to what the surface is made out of, and why it reflects the way it does, as well as what makes it different from other surfaces that aren't reflective.

    Asking someone else to do this for you is not the way you improve at all. Everyone who draws and paints, who tries to render forms either accurately or believably faces this issue, and they all solve it by looking at other reflective things, and finding out how light plays off of their surfaces. Every surface in the real world is reflective to some degree. Just study them. Do studies in your sketchbook, and you'll solve this problem in no time.

    Hopefully, in a few weeks time, you'll look back on this thread in disbelief that you posted something like this.

    FAKE IT!!??

    YOU WANT TO FAKE IT??!!

    i was ok with this thread up until that point. man that's just fucking insulting!

    you don't learn to paint in photoshop, you learn to paint by painting. there's no secret brush, no magic wand, no genie in a bottle. there's just practice and experience.

    i can appreciate the fact that you want to be taught how to do certain things, and you may find some great people on this site willing to do that. but when you say that you just want to "fake it", it makes me think that you want to pass off someone else's work as your own. and that is most definitely not cool. in fact it's completely fucking immoral.
    Hey dog. . . . did you see the size of that chicken?!

    give a man a fish and you'll feed him for a day.
    teach a man to fish and you'll feed him for a lifetime.


    learn. it's slow. believe me. but do it yourself or you'll never ever improve.

    unless you're autistic. in which case, i advise following in others' footsteps and making criminal threats and purposefully suppressing any personal progress by hindering yourself senselessly. (IRelyOnYourPity, From the void or whatever... you know who you are.)

    Yeah the last four people said exactly the same inane thing with varying degrees of coherence:

    "learn. it's slow. believe me. but do it yourself or you'll never ever improve.

    unless you're autistic."

    Cringeworthy gags about autism are and mawkish quotes about fishing are big melting chocolate teapots.
    Granted learning is by nature a slow, personal process but does anyone know of any useful tips pages or useful resources the guy can use? Perhaps from established painters wishing to share their skills? What about images that can be easily deconstructed and copied so the techniques used can be practiced and mastered.

    Give a man a chip shop and he'll be fat and happy.

    I think some of you misinterpreted his intentions of watching somebody else do it. He wants to learn the execution, the process, the step by step and windex is willing to pay to see the process in action.
    But on the flipside, you can't just know the process and instantly bang out a kickass piece. You must learn the fundamentals, develop awareness.
    And i recommend drawing from life rather from a photo reference. IMO, a photo reference is limited.

    Ps-the revolution controller is hot sex. =]
