    Savior + Clockwork Devil

    aRg.

    My first ever painter drawings. I'm trying very hard...not to say...what I want to say about them....which is that they're really awful (sorry, I couldn't hold it in after all ;__; )

    This thing was originally meant to be a new avatar for practice...but I went a little overboard and made something very odd relating to nature and industry instead. the digital watercolor brushes can be a little frustrating
    Savior + Clockwork Devil

    For this one I murdered the default papers, as I haven't yet figured out how to make my own papers to murder.

    c&c very much appreciated please don't be too harsh *ducks for cover*

    Edit: I tried lightening the background a bit, but I dunno...is this better?

    Congrats on that Painter copy you got, good to see you making a good use of it.



    Though for crits...I see contrast issues.


    Can´t believe your 17

    Green Topaz, you are one talented individual. I was floored by your portfolio at the workshop. As for these, I think they are a great start to your new adventures in painter.
    My only crit in the first image would be to knock back the elements in the background to a lighter value to add some atmosphere.

    Keep rockin' it.

    Sorry I couldn't meet you at the workshop - I heard only good things, and people couldn't stop talking about your portfolio. Next time perhaps

    I wouldn't beat yourself up over these. I think the paint handling could use work- sure - but its your first time so don't sweat it. From my own experience in painter (and I'm a total digital noob btw) is that there are almost too many options. Simplify it. Most of the guys at the workshop only used a handful of brushes in Photoshop, and during Jason chan's great demo I think he use only 2 brushes for the majority of the time.

    I agree with James Kei on the bg in the first one - you have so much going on in the foreground, that the background could really be pushed back.
    Looking forward to seeing you grow as an artist - good luck

    These look great. I love the colors and the texture...especially the hands and arms on both pieces.

    stepping outside of your comfort zone is a great way to learn.

    your work is impressive,
    i have no doubt you will be proficient at painter in no time.

    good luck.

    Greentopaz, it was reall nice meeting u at the workshop. wished we could have spend more time together... your art is very inspirational. ^___^
    well, u asked for some crits, so here i go: the silhouette of the main character in the first painting feels a bit akward... like the flowers forming a tengency with the line of the building in the background... maybe vary it and dig holes in it so it's more interesting...? i love the red u got in the skin of the hands reaching up... maybe u could work it into the the other elements like the clothing and the background too?

    hope to see u again soon! and keep in touch!

    Hey GreenTopaz,

    It's me, the guy who kept bugging you and showing your stuff around. Or one of them, I guess Your work completely blew me away. I'm looking forward to watching your work just skyrocket. Anyway, I thought you might enjoy a custom brush that I tend to use:

    Go into the Oils and select Round Camel Hair. Open up the Brush Creator in the Windows menu. Change the Brush Head from Camel Hair to Circular. Change the Size modifier from Pressure to None. Change Opacity modifier to Pressure. Try it out.

    Hmm...lighter background or not...well if she's a savior she brings light upon the suffering, but maybe it's the prelight-moment....you decide, either way it looks nice, my suggestion would be the first one -darker-, but with somekind of divine light shining down upon her

    topaz, I like both of these I dont see why you should be berating yourself on them. Its kind of a downer...

    Anyways, I want to see you post this portfolio that everyone has been raving about!

    I can't use painter to save my life. You're already better than me. I'm going to try out Jason's brush suggestion too.

    I didn't meet you at the workshop but I heard a lot about you. Maybe we can meet at the next one (I think if i land enough work I can make it! maybe they'll have another tuition contest!)
