    Tom--

    I love the "What I learned foo!" that you're adding to your posts. It really helps see where you're going with your work, and helps me think about where I need to go in my own stuff. Your colors just keep getting better and better, as do your compositions. The ridiculous amount of work you're doing is paying off in spades.

    Always an inspiration to step in here.

    -Ben

    @Camara: Hehe, thanks! Check out the Demo thread in my signature, if there is something more specific you want to see let me know and I'll try to do something. Cheers!
    @Jake: Hey mandingo! Your colors are getting really awesome too, you need to go into a coma or something so you don't become too talented too young... because it's not fair hahaha.
    @Mondegreen: Always happy to at least try and answer questions; let's see - color selection. For enviroments I sort of just let the palette happen at times, start with earthy tones and build upon that - often randomly, most of what I do with enviroments starts rather randomly. With flat paints I usually have a pretty good idea of the colors I want, or rather - what I want to experiment with. I do often change my mind throughout the process, things are easily editable via color balance and/or selective color, perhaps multiply or overlay layers or just plain repainting of course. I think using color balance and selective color can really help with harmony. Thanks for the crit, you are absolutely right. Trying to work more and more of that in, but it's almost a completely different skill-set; got to study up on perspective and process for sure. Brush set? Hrm, what are you refering to? I think I remember a Painter brush set, not sure if I still have that around though. Let me know. Cheers Ben!
    @Enthombed: Hehe, thanks for always keeping me company in here mate. Cheers!
    @Bhanu: Hehe, Mr. Blonde gave up . Ok not really, but I'm sure we are both going to explore like crazy. I think he's a big fan of using saturation for contrast, focals etc. So much to play with, so little time. Cheers dude!
    @Brendan N: Thanks a lot man, glad I can inspire someone This is really nice by the way.
    @Cakeypigdog: Cakey! Who's been a busy boy? You have! damn you! Been kicking ass lately man, I need to hit up your sketchbook soon. Glad I can inspire cool artists Being experimental and playful is what it's all about! Why do the same thing over and over and why do anything that's not fun? Cheers dude.
    @ThinMint: Thanks! Actually I haven't used Painter since ... back in March really. The brush is just the default round in Photoshop, squished to 33% and rotated to -108 degrees. Size, opacity and flow to pressure - and here is the kicker, background/foreground jitter set to pressure as well. It's pretty nutty but feels quite a bit like painter with a lot more work involved haha. Thanks again, cheers!
    @Entdroid: Thanks Victoria (right? that's your name no?) It's strange about Painter and PS, I feel I have to think more in Photoshop - really understand what I want and how to do it; almost like it takes more processing power. In painter, a lot of things happen quite naturally - but because it's not quite as tactile as real paint I find it hard to do a lot of things, especially controlling edges. I think this could be worked around really, and simply - having a hard brush and a soft brush you alternate between. But still, I don't really want to go back to Painter. Thanks as always for the support Later!
    @Onir: Haha, thanks man. Jez, when are you going to realize I'm a hack? hahaha. Need to hit up your sketchbook soon and see what you've been up to.
    @Koppa: Thanks dude, it's been a good year! Here's to another 2 or 3 before I become a full time chef! Cheers!
    @Bumskee: Dude, we really need to teach each other some more... you're kicking so much ass lately. Let's hold off on the rabbit hunting for now, maybe we could go bowling? @_@. Cheers buddy.
    @BillyDead: RARRRRRR! Will do. haha.
    @Pennington: Scotty scott scott, how you been man? Hope you are having a good holiday and such. Always cool to see peoples favorites, I love that everyone likes different things
    @Beelow: Thanks a lot man! I do some freelance stuff on the side, not entirely sure I enjoy it though haha. I also go to a local community college where I take an odd amount of art classes Cheers.
    @Fedezz: Hahaha, great! So glad that rabbit wasn't a waste of time haha. Cheers man!
    @GOBLINSHARK: Yeah man, me too! Especially now that my home state is Freezing cold and covered in snow. "Open more windows ... mirror of my imagination" haha, be careful what you wish for. Let me know how those landscapes turn out dude! Just keep at it, if you look at the beginning of this sketchbook you'll see some of my first serious attempts at landscapes. Thanks for the crit as well, I've been having a lot of fun in my life drawing classes - posted a lot of stuff in my life drawing thread in my signature too. Been drawing faces a little bit even! Woo! Going to do some more portrait studdies too. Though, it's not so much 'fear' that I don't do things like that, it's motivation haha. I usually get burned out before I get to something like that - I usually have an objective when I am doing studies and once I achieve that I move on. Anyways, this is quite the ramble - cheers!
    @MattGamer: MattMatt! Seems like it's been awhile man, hope your holidays are going well. Just keep at it man, it all comes with time and practice ... and thinking. Let me know if I can help out, but also check out the peer project because that's just the sort of thing I'd tell you to do anyways
    @Haxxxor: haha, yeah ... Matt is nuts! Thanks man, hope I won't disappoint
    @Hyptosis: Thanks for always dropping by man
    @Max Xiantu: DUDE! I fuggin met you man! So cool to meet you guys. Oils with Whitaker? Haha, he did say he wanted to teach more young people ... hmmm. Funny that people think those guys are gravestones, never really saw them that way - that's a little creepy I think haha. Guess I need to put more form to them or something. I love those forest spirits by the way. We need to UberMegaBattleSketch, uhmm... how was I supposed to contact you again? Gmail?
    @DaveTheOriginal: Dave! Hey man, hope your holidays are going well! What's a floozy? It's thanks to you I'm in that magazine mate! Thanks! I've got that issue coming in the mail, can't wait! Cheers buddy, keep on keeping on.
    @Fellah.: Heya Simon! How have you been? Merry Christmas my friend.
    @IdiotApathy: Wanker, posting without an update.
    @Tokidokizenzen: Yeah, sometimes never you know? @_@, thanks man.
    @Vishaka: Thanks, just to make sure - those are probably all collaborations between me and some amazing artists around here. Cheers!
    @Invinciblewombat: Thanks womby! One of the best? AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ... ha.
    @liam.C: Thanks dude! Take a bite? Kinky ... @_@
    @BludHund: , yeah - I should use the attachment manager more for sure... just can't figure the damn thing out. Pain in the ass, either shows up as thumbnails or not at all. Workshop stuffs? All I really did was that quicky color on disco's machine - he did 98% of the work haha. Lots of stuff this update though. Say, where are you in PA? I used to live there as a kiddo.
    @Infinit: Hahaha. Thanks man, will have to try and do some more video demos for sure. Cheers!
    @BDFoster: Thanks man, MattGamer and I sort of went off each others vibe for the "what I learned foo!". You should join in and do it with your updates too, will help you focus your thoughts and will help others too! Thanks for the kind words mate! Happy Holidays!
    @Mull77: Haha sorry sorry, finals then workshop then not having the internet for a few days takes its toll on the updates. You've really been improving lately mate, we should talk soon!
    @Stalsby: Thank ya sir!
    @Elnady: Yes, very true - I'm moderately crazy. Best sketchbook? PFfffffffffffft.

    ----

    Okay, been almost a month?! Jez - Finals, then going out of town for the workshop and not having the internet lately is the culprit I swear! I'm going to try and do a large "What I learned Foo!" Section today, just some thoughts I've been having; but I think I'll also start writing them in more detail in my demo thread.


    The Junk I like:
    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Messing around with the clone stamp, using extra-canvas, err other 'paintings' as the source. Kind of an optical mixing/impressionist feel to this one.

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Different crop and Ratio with color tweaks on this one. This is actually the correct ratio, the one above is squished!

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Another variation - really enjoying messing with 'finalized' paintings lately. And mirroring... etc... hehe more on that later I think.

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Just more tests, got to figure out how to work with edges in this new process. So different... need to study rocks too haha.

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    This is what's behind that last one ... I dunno. Not that different I just liked the sky.

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Lead to this one ... hehe ok I won't do the cheezy flip the sky into water anymore I promise.

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Just a landscape, using a few tricks I picked up - started me off on the clone stamp for this batch actually.

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Not very often I do a structure, I've got a process .gif of this one I'll post in my demo thread along with the .psd I think. This one almost looks like photo's were used huh? Crazy.

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Went nuts on this one later on ... got really ugly. Backed up to this spot and saved it out. Messing around with a sort of half-painted look... will have to flesh it out more.

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    You know ... I don't really like this one now... moving on.

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    This ... I think this is a bit ugly now that I look at it again. I had it more of a day light feel before but that's didn't work too well either ... was more of a 'tech' demo than anything. I think I have this up in my demo thread with gif and psd already?

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    This is a bit old now, done at the first of the month maybe? Clone stamped it a bit just to mess around, was fun. Neat sort of story book feel to it maybe?

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    This is a bit of a WIP I guess. Got tired...

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    This was for the 1st Annual CA Gift Exchange! I got to give a gift to ChaosRocks! Using background/foreground jitter to get it nice and gooey.


    Hahaha, have to break this up into two posts!

    Sketches and Other Junk ...

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Just more messing around... I dunno. Little bit of depth of field going on again.

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Rar! Quicky sketch, what do you mean it looks mirrored?

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    I like the feel to this but ... it's oogly at the same time.

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Dunno. Kind of fun.

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Uhm, I dunno... @_@



    Collabs!

    Collab with Frank Wade
    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Really just wanted to paint a face haha...

    Collab with Bumskee
    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Spent a bit longer than usual on this one, had so much fun. I did this one much earlier in the year, it was an entry into the CHoW Battle Angel. Not sure if this version is 'better' or not, but I don't care either hehe. First time messing around with the Background/Foreground jitter. Red is such a nice color...

    Collab with Bumskee
    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    This was such a cool sketch Min posted, such great rhythm to it and a cool POV. Added to duck to keep it anchored a bit. Having fun with color temp.

    Collab with Bumskee
    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Super quicky... didn't think it needed too much ... maybe I ruined it actually haha. The red is my bengal impression ...

    "What I learned Foo!"
    What I learned is that I'm really tired ... and I'm going to do this hopefully tomorrow or sometime... hahaha. It will be worth it, I promise... I hope

    Yes, Victoria is right, that's my name I'm really happy you updated at last, lots of eyecandy here!
    I think you're managing quite well by just using PS. But playing around with other stuff can be fun once in a while too, hehe.
    Your colors are always such a treat, Tom, and I really like the textures you're getting in a lot of these. The structure piece is really cool, it's nice to see you move from your comfort zone. I'm not really sure why you're saying that so many of these are ugly, 'cause they're really really NOT!!! I wish I could paint like that!!
    The gift you made for Chaos was SO cute!!! I smiled when I peeked on it in the Gift basket thread. I confess I looked at it before the actual date when it was supposed to be "opened", sorry!
    My favourite pieces are the ones on the second post you made. The first image is specially beautiful, great sense of depht.
    The robot-thingie has a great mood.
    The first two collabs with Bumskee are incredible!!! Love'em!
    Awesome and inspiring as always. Looking at your stuff makes me wanna draw and paint every time
    Hope to see more soon!
