Animated Gif, Extensively Layered PSD!
Another *cough* figure study from photo reference. Been doing these a lot looser than before, no more measuring! Just getting right too it. Enjoying the freedom this allows me, the extra expression it allows as well, not only in brushstrokes but with a shorter amount of time spent on these I of course feel freer to mess around. I'm rambling, time for sleep I think.
Face is bunk, min told me the texture made it even more bunk too. Lots of other bunkness too... Hehe, o'well all in the name of experimentation.
Canvas just below reference.
PSD: Lots more steps and other things to see in here, larger too!

"Another *cough* figure study from photo reference."
that's what it's called when you are looking at porn and you gf comes in, you pretend to draw her and and have to do it now cause she'll be asking for the final piece
but I liked it better without the applied texture
go there if you want to see my photography stuff

Yeah, texture may have been a mistake - but it's through rampant experimentalism that we learn ... about mistakes. And the best mistakes are those we learn from... I think I was trying to cover up some sloppy brushwork actually. But messing with textures is fun too.
Very nice tutorials, all of them, I learn a lot looking at them. I'm very impressed. Nice similarity too with the portrait ref. You got it all, Tom, you just need to discipline yourself about saturation . You are overusing it in your enviros and cartoons., IMO. Everything is focal point, you don't allow your viewer to have a moment of rest on something soft and indefinite.
Figure painting from ref and tutorial of enviro, ( although it is still too loud, well, they are nice in this sense.
Thanks Sveta! Glad that you are getting something out of them. Haha, discipline with saturation? I like eye burning colors. I do know what you mean though, Mr. Blonde has been on me for the same thing. I'm started to experiment with it more and more, but there is always a place for eye burning colors I think. Cheers!
Extensively (way too many) layered PSD!
From my recent love affair with photo montaged robots.
smitten with these robots mate! they're such a fresh use of the media, not to mention inventive step beyond the whole rehash of ashwood popbots around! You make my mustache whiskers go all pointy!!!
I was watching your second demo (probably you have moved forward, and have no interest in this), but I was thinking that it would be great if from that aerial view, you show, blurred, and behind the clouds, some ground. You know, houses and farm deliniations, of the ground far far away.
Anyway, as I said you probably have moved forward.
PS: It's great to see someone that make a real step-by-step, and I apriciated much.
Probably I'll came again to make you some anoynng questions.

Hey dude thanks for these tutorials, are very useful to learn and improve our skills.
Impressive amount of tutorials you have here man. I will be looking at them now, thanks for posting them!
Thanks allot, humongous amount of thanks ! These help so much, they're really really of great use, thanks for your trouble ! Now first step is buy me a new Wacom, do many of you use a tiny one A6 or A5 or is everyone drawing on bigger Tablets ?
nice man this is great thread !
mrgrumble: Thanks tim I've said it before but I'll say it again, so much fun.
Lennon: Yeah, for sure; I can see that. Glad you liked the demos, more than happy to answer any and all annoying questions that I can
supersalenco: No problem man, really pleased they can help some people a bit
armaldon: Thanks man, glad you are enjoying them!
Jamaludin: Great! Really happy people are getting some use out of these. I was worried at first. Tablet? If you have the money go for Intuos3 6x8, bigger is a matter of taste/opinion. If you are broke, buy a Graphire4 - I used a Graphire 2 4x5 for years and didn't have any problems. But I love my Intuos
Liam.C: Hey man! You've really been kicking ass lately, cheers and thanks!
Working on some more videos right now, trying to figure out optimal compression vs quality etc etc. Later then!

Part One Music by:
Album: Touche d'espoir
Track: Touche d'espoir
Part Two Music by:
Album: Past is Prologue
Track: The Disconnect
Part Three Music by:
Album: Balance on What
Track: Theory of Noise
Album: Past is Prologue
Track: Sunrise Projector
Notes: You will need the capability to decompress .RAR files. Codecs are included in each .RAR. For this set there are 2 codecs, parts 1-2 use the CamStudio Codec; parts 2-4 use the msu-sc Codec. Both codecs are lossless however the msu has a smaller file size and better capture I believe. Installation is very simple. Videos are sped up, exact times I don't know. One or two of the files doesn't seek as well as I would like it to, but the issue is fixed in later videos.
Working on the balance between quality, file size and duration. These three are lossless, 100% quality, working resolution and rather quick duration 5-10 minutes but the file size for each .RAR is between 40-55mb. Give me any feedback you may have, too short? too big? Bear with me, still figuring all this out.

PSD - For a closer look - 100% Res:
There is also a part 4, but it's perhaps not so interesting and adding a background made the file size go jumbo.
Hey budsky - this is me being sincere for a tick: you have no idea how much these have helped me! i knew pretty much diddly when i started doing digital a few months back, and these have really brought me a long ways! cheers for the new goodies! as helpful as always
