Hey, you've got some great rendering skills thar! 'Specially appreciate your paint over and all. Not so crazy about the anime Photoshop piece though. Do you have any anatomy studies or figure drawings you could post?
Thank you for the compliments. Yeah, I'm not too fond of my Anime piece either. I more or less put it up here to show my progress as I learn more and more about digital art, working in Photoshop and Open Canvas.
As for anatomy studies and figure drawings, I do have alot, but I will have to take pictures of them and put them on my computer. They are all from my college days back in 96. I haven't done any figure studies since then. I plan on starting again though. Just have to find a model. I find it's easier using a live model than going by a picture. I will try to get those copied to my PC and post them in here. I have alot of old work that will go up in here, and I will be posting new stuff frequently. Thank you again for the compliments.
That last character is way cool! I prefer the version without the brain showing, though. And something about the angle vs the frame makes it look like she/he/it is moving out of the frame. Maybe some more space to the left?
Keep at this one, I want to se where you are going!
Ohjay - Thank you for the compliments. Yeah, I plan on doing something about the frame composition. I have to do a background yet too. And you're right about the brains. I like how realistic they came out, but they don't fit the picture. I'm going to revert to the original head. I may use the technique I came up with on the brains for the alien and do some reworking. After this, I will be doing another project. I've already done a prelim sketch.....
not bad, I like the one of the close up on the girls face. with that eye and eyebrow. photoshop is tuff, keep at it! Keep working with new brushes too, they have literally thousands as I'm just finding out.
sabe2003 - Thank you. I'm actually conflicted. I'm using Photoshop and Painter 9. I like Photoshop because it seems like it has more features, but I really like Painter 9 because it makes you feel like you're using real media for your pictures. The oil painting is amazing. I have not figured out how to create brushes that can replicate that in Photoshop. I need books on both of them. I got both from a friend, as I'm kinda poor at the moment. He didn't have the books for either. So I'm learning alot from this site and all of the great people here. LOTS of very inspirational talent here. I recently lost my $50k year a job as a corporate robot, and I want to take this second chance in life to get a job doing what I love, and that's art. Sorry for babbling. lol
A goody that I did today using ZBrush 2 to model and paint the head, then Photoshop for the background and glow effect. This was my first ever use of a 3d modelling program. I don't think I did too bad.
I'm actually quite proud of myself. lol.
