    SKETCHES and WIP---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hey everyone!

    I have realized that the time has come for me to do some more "fantasy" type stuff so I can eventually get a damn job. SO...I am trying to draw a character a day and so far it is proving somewhat successful. I will hopefully post another one today, but seriously I am soo scatterbrained it's rediculous. Hope everyone likes.
    These drawings I'm going to paint so any Crit. would be welcome.

    TUTORIAL

    pencil.. sorry the quality is so bad on the sketch except the last. My scanner is way too small, and it would have been hell to scan all of these WIP and paste them togther.

    **ELVES**painting characters from last week!** NEW WORK! + TUTORIAL

    painting...

    **ELVES**painting characters from last week!** NEW WORK! + TUTORIAL

    I. Painted a texture with tradition acrylic, scanned, then put it as a layer under multipy, top layer. Put that layer on 50% opacity to see drawing underneath, then began eraseing the texture to see the complete drawing.

    II. Finished eraseing, ready to paint.

    III. Putting in colors to see what I want. I already know I want the skirt red so i don't bother at this point.

    IV. I select the background layer and start fooling with the values in image->adjustment->LEVELS.

    V. I add white to her guarder belt and the wife beater shirt(screwed up name, but hey they look cool, lol) light blue for shadows. Added reds, and took away the layer that was her hair because I like the white better. start indicateing shadows on her buttock,

    VI. Add shadows to skirt, gray and brown to bullet holder, rendered goggles, rendered face mask and add green to bullets.

    VII. Add castshadows to skirt , and pattern to guarder and thighhighs, keep in mind all these different steps are on seperate layers.

    VIII. Worked on jacket, adding shadows, and medium tones. Add dark tips to hair, Render guns, boots, pattern on boots.

    IX. Add darker medium tones, realized it was looking washed out and flat, and add burn hole to guarder and thighhighs.

    X. ok so I add accent here and there, like the glimmer on the boots, accent the core shadow aslo. add patches, and dirt on her coat. I aslo darkened her bullet sash and put bright greens on the bullets. At the very end I went to Levels and made the darks a bit darker, and the highlights a bit lighter to push the contrast more, also I added a shadow.

    Well there you go that it my process it can be way more efficient, I am very new to photoshop so if anyone has tricks and faster ways to do things tell me, . hope this helped any newbies.

    **ELVES**painting characters from last week!** NEW WORK! + TUTORIAL

    well yet again it is not finished,. I am getting a little sick and tired of working on this, and I'm loseing motivation, but here is yet another process. I just need to tighten up things here and there. I just need to grunt through it.

    **ELVES**painting characters from last week!** NEW WORK! + TUTORIAL

    The second painting WIP... I've been pretty sick this past week so that is why I haven't posted earlier. crits. are welcome of course,

    working...not done yet but which of these looks best, the first or second.Also imagine a pattern on his skirt, and the first not so contrasty in his chest, maybe even lighter.

    I really like these, Tiffany. I gotta say, that first one with the armored top and what looks like a ballgown, is really fascinating. Keep it up.

    I agree! The first one is terrific!
    The second is also good, but that lady DEFINITELY gets your attention...

    Best success at sticking with this! You can do it!

    no crits, they look awesome, but the only small gripe is that you didn't pay much attention to her dress.....the botton portion, and it shows.
    LoL, that reminds me, i was doing some googling earlier on "back gown", like madster adviced. almost similar, now i just need to find an image with similar folds for the piece im currently working on.
    Anyways, back to you, i'm digging these,
    Go ahead and color these bad boys!!!

    Hi Poise,

    no crits this time. I really like those. Good anatomy and interesting characters and they are very different from your BodyMatch designs. I'm sure the coloured version of the first lady will be cool, because of that kind of armour.

    Keep it up, you're definetely on the right way ('wish I was too ...)

    See ya!

    these look amazing.
    let the drawing do the work for you in the painting.
    its ok for it to show through a little.

    I really like the first one a lot. You might want to lengthen the gown just a little bit. Even though it might realistically be the "right" length for her legs, she'll look more regal and commanding with it a bit longer, and it will balance the heaviness of the armor more.

    Second one looks good, too, but there should be a little more curve and offset to his neck, to continue the "s" of the spine.

    let the drawing do the work for you in the painting.

    Listen to Dan. You have a tendancy to go too heavy too soon.

    I have a naked man in the process of being clothed. So soon I will post the next character

    Thanks everyone for the crits and nice words.
    and I think your right Dan about painting and workin with my line drawing, thank you for the advice
    Elwell: that is a good idea of extending her dress to make her look more regal, thank you! I will also tweak the guys head. I have started painting him, but I think I'm going to start over
    Mono: yeah I didn't spend a long time on her dress, I was thinking of putting a pattern on it, but not sure.

    Well anyway guys you will see another character soon. I need to start getting my ass in gear, and pump these suckers out

    lol, i was thinking on putting a pattern on mine as well, maybe something gothic-ish. Anybody have a tutorial on how to do pattern designs on Painter 9?
    Btw, are you using ps or painter to color?

    great work. you definitely nailed the contraposto pose in the second one. it allows for the character to have balance as well as potential movement. i can see a slight repetition of the potential movement in the characters face as well. keeping the mouth at a slight opening gives me the feeling that he was in the middle of a breath, or speech, or even a relaxed jaw. very convincing indeed. also allowing the foot with action to peak out of the fabric helps to continue that rhythm you established. no cc. cant wait to see them both painted!
