    Blaise - Update March 29 Boba Fett

    Hi Everyone,

    This forum has inspired me to finally try some digital painting. I'm fairly new to working with Photoshop so hopefully this sketchbook will be a way for me to track my progress (or my dismal failure) as well as gain some valuable advice from all of the amazing artists here.

    So - here's the first attempt, starting from nothing and using a round brush with low opacity to see how this blending thing works:

    Spent a LOT more time on this one, rendering it in black and white before laying the color on top. Here it is - the obligatory Batman sketch:

    This one is from ref, still using the same brush:

    Scanned in some old sketchbook pages to practice painting over. This time I've used a different brush with opacity set to pressure:

    Another one done from reference, trying the new brush again.

    Crits will be very appreciated. I'm still finding my way and hope to update this fairly regularly. Thanks for looking!

    Great looking stuff. I don't know anything about photoshop. You must have done traditional painting before you started this?

    Thanks Gilead. Actually, %99 of the work I've done has been black and white. I've probably done about 20 paintings (traditional) using acrylics, oils, and alkyds - trying to find a medium I liked. The results were typically the same - the paintings tend to be sort of flat and the color gets muddy. That's one thing I'm loving about painting digitally; the ability to adjust contrast, saturation, etc... as you go (not to mention undoing mistakes). If you can get hold of Photoshop I recommend giving it a try.

    Dude, your stuff is awesome! Can't believe you're just a beginner at this.

    Your demon looks great by the way. Are you gonna leave it this way? Can't wait to see more

    Really good start

    Blaise:

    I really love your shading techniques. I've just started digital painting as well and I haven't done traditional painting since childhood (a damn shame I know). Your paintings have a strong sense of volume. I'll be checkin' back to see your progress.

    Pesmerga: Thanks. I think I'll leave the demon for now. I want to keep moving on and trying new stuff.

    seansea: You and I sound a lot alike. I should have been painting much more over the past 2 decades.

    Here's another from the sketchbook. Basically they are quick studies with no shading, so I'm using the opportunity to practice painting over them. The drawings are from life (years ago), but the lighting is all from my head (which should be obvious if you look at her neck!).

    Today's sketch. No ref. The proportions may be a bit off.

    Okay, this one has some real anatomy problems, probably because I didn't start with sketch first. I was only going to do a loose value/color sketch but ended up taking it a bit further, hoping to fix the anatomy as I went along. Oh well, it is what it is.

    Wow, really nice values you've got going, in particular the Batman piece, the pirate, and the one where you colored up your sketchbook page. Great stuff, especially since you're only just starting out with digital.

    Your brushwork is very impressive. Is it coustom? You've also done a great job in choosing colors and not letting your work look messy...
