Another Demo done at work. Video is 2 hours reduced down to 10 minutes. Please excuse all the zooming, it’s a valuable way to check your shapes; it’s not nearly as annoying when it’s not 12x the speed. See the divshare link for a full resolution (1600×1200) XviD video and check back with a few days for the PSD file if you are interested.
Awesome! Downloading full size now! Your colors look amazing!
You may already know about this, but two ways I accomplish the same thing as zooming in and out is to have the navigator open, and sized down to check shapes, and/or Window\Arrange\New Window for ***** This way you can paint on both. When using 2 monitors, you can keep the second window on the other monitor. Although I have to say, I still zoom in and out some.
Keep it up!
Tried to make an animated GIF of this but it was way too big and the quality was horrible. So I decided to just post the images and figured I might as well do a write up and put some thoughts I've been having within. Hope it's not too wordy and boring.
Final Image:1. I did this whole demonstration with a 100% soft round. The flow was usually around 80% but on occassion it was at 10% for a very smooth gradation. I came to a sort of obvious realization the other day about how the easiest way to ensure that you are going to learn something with each painting is to try something new. Here besides subject matter as well as a few changes in process I decided to use the brush I mentioned previously Honestly I don't recommend using an "airbrush" for your entire painting but the lighting in this piece allowed for it. I do think however it is fantastic for a general block in and that is what I am doing here. Working general to specific in each stage of this painting made things go a lot smoother.

Many many more steps and details within the PSD
http://www.cgtextures.com (fantastic site!) and mixed it with itself on a darken layer to come up with the background pattern. Again, just on a whim I decided to play even further with my original idea. I find you learn the most from wild experimentation, after all it's all new to you right?
Hope that wasn't too boring
hrh the latest one is EXCELLENT. A+.
