    Thanks Myako, glad you picked up on the atmosphere! You're absolutely right about the title being appropriate for artists! It's so easy to get distracted sometimes!

    Speaking of that, time to get back to work!

    Hey dave! That's really nice!

    You might have cleaned up some of the edges surrounding the girl to help seperate her from the background and background strokes a little bit perhaps? A little bit of contrast can go a long way. Just a thought.

    Hope you are doing well, cheers!

    Cheers Tom, you're absolutely right. the image has gone to print, but I'll remember that for next time!

    I've been asked to draw Iron Man for someone and after looking for inspiration (I'm not really familiar with Iron Man) I realised there are about 16 iron man poses and that's it! So, not wanting to go with convention, I decided to go for something a little more interesting...

    This scan is from this months issue of Advanced Photoshop's "Peer Pressure" section. Be sure to look at the big orange circle in the image, hehe...

    Heya Myako, ask and ye shall receive. (BTW everybody feel free to go over and increase my vote in the CHOW 44 thread. I'm not going to win, but it'd be nice to have a respectable score! )

    Please prepare yourself for a shameless sales pitch!

    Cool Surface badges are now available!!!!!


    Yep, I gave in to popular demand, there are now badges featuring some of your favourite characters available for you to buy for a very modest price!

    Hmmm, no replies for a while
    Let's see if this makes a difference *fingers crossed*
    I've been waiting to post this for ages now, this is the final image of the masterclass colouring tutorial I did for Advanced Photoshop magazine which is out in the uk now! (I'm not sure how long the US has to wait sadly) Go and grab your copy now!

    That's awesome dude, probably the best coloring I've seen you do even. Small crit as I'm not a fan of asspats , You might consider curving the shadow caused by skullkid's leg to follow the form of the ballon a bit more.
