    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.

    Crutches used;
    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

    great again
    but I liked it better without the applied texture

    SHHHHHH!

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    There is also a part 4, but it's perhaps not so interesting and adding a background made the file size go jumbo.
