hey bro, been a long while ! I love your blog dude ! Well, on the last illustration, values are good, colors are good, composition is good, but the only matter for me is gesture, and a bit of anatomy, especially on the character on the right, the legs looks a bit long and thin, and his left arm ( right arm on the illustration ) looks bigger than the other one, so try to check out the foreshortenings ! For the gesture, i think you're trying to create too much dynamism on your pose that it ends up looking a bit weird ! More studies dude ! Anyway, the design is really cool, and i'll always be a big fan of your lighting ! More tutorials dude !!! And i'm looking forward to see one about " light 101 " or " values 101" you know, teaching the foundational stuff would be awesome ! Thanks for everything :p
Edit : Wanna add something : i noticed on the right character that you're really painting muscles ! I find it's cool, but if you want to push the realism forward, just try to add a bit of fat that will smooth a bit the shapes ! It'll look more natural ! Keep it up
Yea for sure D:! I always forget to wait a day after 'finishing' and look it over again with fresh eyes. Or at least when I'm pressured to get things out haha. Time to get back to studies so I can nail the problems right at the gate! Thanks for the heads up!
I'm trying to set somethin up similar to what Bobby Chiu was planning(or is he doin it already?) with Skype. Was hoping to have some people call me on there so I could record the conversation and possibly go over their artwork or talk to other dudes I know workin in the industry... Then get some good insight into working freelance and all that . Let me know if you'd like to participate and drop me a email with your skype name - firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll post on my blog on how I'll choose who to call, still trying to figure that all out
/.....if there is someone from AUSTRALIA especially from SYDNEY on this site, then leave a msg for me, and I really want to meet with you & to making a friends-of course if you'd agree it...............please
Thanks for the video tutorials. I totally forgot about the oval brush and quickly made one.
Another way of using texture overlays is to make a selection from the photo. Drag the photo into your painting and go to the channels menu and ctrl + left click the thumbnail icon on the rgb channel to make a selection from it and then you can paint through the selection. Hide the marching ants with ctrl + h.
