    Thanks all!

    Well I think I will continue posting here a bit too... the exclusive sketchbook sections are not much frequented (2-3 people there at any time vs 250 people here )

    a new speed paint...

    Please keep posting here, I kinda think the exclusive section is a bad idea anyway, kinda changes the dynamic in the sketchbook section. You deserve it though.

    Wow, love it. I do think on the castle/temple you could have used bigger brushstrokes in some places, but over all it rocks my world. Definately keep posting here, its helpful for people to see your progress, and this book documents it better.

    Sweet stuff M@.

    That last is a bit hard to read because of some of the edges. The greater the contrast the sharper the edge. I think you could of pushed the lights higher in some areas to provide a clear seperation of light and shadow. Look outside on a bright day and don't notice the values but how many " steps" to get from light to shadow. It's a pretty big step from light to shadow.


    One little trick you might want to mess around with is at the end of your painting make a new layer and blur it then erase out all the sharp edges.

    I don't know what keyboard setup you are using but you might want to try this out. This is to mapp custom brushes to the F keys.

    First off you need photoshop cs or higher. Go to actions and you can record a action then assign a key to play that action. here are the steps

    1. Actions- create new action
    2. click on Brush icon. Very important so no errors come up
    3. select custom brush.
    4. stop recording and assign F key.

    now I have F4 as a erasor, F5 is Sharp brush, F6 is Soft, F7 is textured, and F8 is undo. this is a great set up and you can still use the middle alt for color picking and then use the number 0 9 to change opacity when needed. I also use o for smudge tool ( set to O ) which I use as a brush and L for lasso to quickly pick out shapes. photoshop does not allow you to rotate the canvas and to solve this problem I assigned F9 the horizontal flip to help in drawing accurate lines.

    Now, go to control panel and click the wacom icon. change the function of the intous pen buttons from down and up to {{{ }}} Remember to put 3 {{{ . Now in photoshop instead of having to keep clicking the button to change size it will go in steps of 3 brush sizes and this is all you need. Any special size brush can be adjusted 1 step at a time by press { or } .

    designboot : thanks!

    Fishspawn : thanks, yeah I guess I'll jkeep posting here..

    ChrisMayernik : hey thanks for the tips. Assigning specific brushes to F button sound cool, never really thought of that. Sparth assigns brush sets to F buttons btw, that can be cool too.. but I got that habit of right clicking to change size and choose brushes.. I do that very fast now and it's so embedded in my working habit, can't change it.. ive tried many times to take the habit of keyboard shortcut on brush size, but all the time after a few minutes I go back, instinctively, to right clicking and change size...

    What you say about values and edges, I guess I know that? where do you think light and dark values are messy here?

    Your blur trick doesn't sound very appealing to me, I'll try it but I think using sharpen and then blurring that layer makes the same kind of effect.. Actually I'm trying to even stop doing this and directly be able to do the hard/soft edges while painting.. Not really fond of the post processing kinda workflow.

    For rotating the canvas, well, I just rotate the Cintiq ..

    Hahaha, .... you bastards with your cintiqs

    Shame you're not getting enough traffic in the exclusive section, maybe you should just post the sort of thing you might find on the extra's section in a DVD. Close-ups, wips that sort of thing. Hell I'd love a wip for everything you do, maybe get a screenshot program that all you have to do is hit a button and it creates a image for you, so not to slow you down.

    I think chris... was referencing higher contrast within your two large value areas; but that's just nuts because that's my favorite part in this last one. Besides the figure.

    I never even thought of assigned brush sets to the F keys. That's brilliant. Also I can't believe I never noticed that right clicking in photoshop brings up that menu with the brushes. I think that would be great for switching through a ton of custom brushes.

    Yea I do think painting the edges correcly as you paint would be better then doing post processing stuff. I don't actually do it myself but I know last year I did and It was kind of interesting. Wow , you got a cintiq. Awesome.

    "What you say about values and edges, I guess I know that? where do you think light and dark values are messy here? "

    Well the left side is awesome but the right side is very soft and all goes together so it can be a little confusing. I think the texture you add is overtaking the values of the form and making it hard to read. Maybe too strong in the shadows.

    darkos : hehe I'll post when I have a "finished" piece :p and when I'll be allowed to show my stuff from work... merci mec.

    ChrisMayernik : I see, the castle part you mean? I agree it's a bit experimental and some color / values are a bit all over the place.. over did some texturing there in an overlay phase

    Sweet! But you don't need to go all out with a full-blown tutorial or anything - WIP'S and perhaps a PSD (wink wink) are every bit as valuable.

    im glad to see you're posting here again. the exclusives are nice though since you don't have to scroll through all the replies, but i think it's still better to have you back here. the latest one is great too, btw.

    Mathias, tu es une véritable source de motivation pour un pauvre amateur comme moi.
    Eternal thanks for sharing your work with us. I'm still a big fan of your concepts. Your color palettes are just crazy as always. Keep it up once again.ù
