Animated Gif Extensively Layered PSD
Just a quick experiment with enviroments, started as a thumbnail I did for another project but never finished. Lot's of digital trickery going on this time, probably more apparent in the PSD. Using the clone stamp to knock in textures from the get go - via another file as the source. Mirroring and using lighten or darken to mix things up a bit as well - of course breaking up the perfect symmetry as well.
Tried to keep the PSD as high res as possible without bloating the filesize, around 20mb's I think.

Note: I use a ton of brushes, some made up on the spot but also many of Bumskee's - BaRONTiERi's and Alday.J's. I also change the settings constantly if I find something lacking or unsatisfactory. Just play around with these, maybe they have some use to you?
A: Basic Round; Size to Pressure, minimum size varies as needed. Flow and Opacity to Pressure. Manual Opacity never changes, Manual flow changes as needed. Softness changes as needed via keyboard shortcuts (shift+[ and shift+])
B: New* Brush, Dirty cover/Foliage Cover Brush. Default round with dual brush option, otherwise settings same as above.
C: Squished Elliptical: Angled to -116 degrees, squished to 36%, angle set to inital direction; otherwise same setting as A. Feels a bit more like a paintbrush, doesn't blend as well however.
D: New* Drawing Brush: Actually used much smaller than seen here, dual brush option adds a bit of 'randomness' negating a little bit of the digital feel. Settings otherwise same as A.
E: Foliage Brush 1: Generic, used to fill in and play with edges. Scattering etc. used to mix things up a bit. See settings on your own if curious
F: Cover/Dirty Brush: Used like the bottom right swatch mainly - basically a texture applied to a brush stroke with a bit of variance.
G: Foliage Brush 2: Used large as seen in bottom right and larger. Usually in random and wild strokes for inital abstraction.
H: Foliage Brush 3: Lighter cover, alteration of the same brushstamp as G, a bit more into the individual leaves category. Rarely used by itself.
I: Foliage Brush 4: Meh, just another brush ahah. Try it huge too.
J: Large Foliage Brush: Original size is 1200 px. Real nice huge abstract brush.
K: Barontieri's Chalk: I think this is the same as I got it from BaRONTiERi's set but I can't remember. I wouldn't have included it except I use it quite a bit, or have at least. Good for dirty textures and foliage.
L: Flower/Grain Brush: Use this puppy for flowers and to add grain and otherwise variance to paintings. Good to mix up foliage as well.
M: Palette Knife: Can be nice for drawing, seems too digital when painting - need to tweak it.
N: More random foliage brush: Can be nice to add some variety - can't say I've really used it as the main event.
O: A bit sharper shapes, can help with seeing more manmade shapes in abstractions.
P: Ground cover brush: I mess with the settings on this one a lot - but can make some decent dirt/ground.
Q: New* Dirty Brush: Just used to dirty things up so far.
R: Ugly Branches brush: When messed with properly can be ok... otherwise way too ugly and digital.
File: Some new free host, supposed to stay FOREVERRRRRRR!

Mmm, yeah the first demo was lost due to Photobucket and their policy on 'nudity' painted and otherwise. This was before I was saving things as well as I am now haha, o'well was a crummy demo.
The brush I used however is basically the A brush in this set though.
Cheers dude, hope something works for you.

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

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!
