MeTaL-Mike: My pleasure dude and thanks very much. New demo time! ICH: Yeah? Did those crappy brushes ruin your painting? Cheers! ikuru: Thanks man! I will try and drop by, but it's probably easier if you have specific questions - ask all you want in here
Demo Twenty Four!
3 Simple 30 minute Sketches:
Concentrating on simple techniques and process as well as the "remix" technique.
gah I downloaded these a week or so ago and never stopped in to say thanks! though I primarily use painter, these are really a nice insight into a process for painting digitally. not much else to say outside of that, just wanted to let ya know all the help you've offered is much appreciated
Ikuru: Thanks much man, let me know if you learned anything and what! Always interesting to know.
darkos: Thanks! Hmm, not sure I can really quantify the texture and color... dunno. I do set my brushes up a more natural - opacity and flow to pen pressure and I change the minimum size depending on what I need. Cheers!
Onir: Welcome! And thanks! Painter is nice, I swapped to photoshop for more control though - you should give it a shot!
Xaya: Track one on the last video is Hooverphonic: Renaissance Affair - track two is also Hooverphonic though I can't remember the track name.
well I lerned to use that flat brush tool thing, it helps me to carv the perspective a bit... Also I find it realy interesting how you copy and paste things in order not to have to render all of it all the time... And then using diferent brushes for depth... its all good.
lennon: Thanks dood - glad to hear they aren't worthless
Demo Twenty Six:
--- Photostudy with PSD and Process
Crutches used: side by side with photo reference; use of level lines when needed to check proportions.
Yul Brynner in "The Magnificent Seven" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054047/
Fantastic western, hadn't seen it in awhile. Really well filmed too. It's eastern progenitor "The Seven Samurai" is still better though
Had to tweak the values - monitor is too dark I guess. Not sure if it's any better now though. Was real good to work in just two values at the start - and really only ended up with three and the blends in between. Learned a ton about form.
