    Chuck-E Tutorial + New head Drawing TUT.

    i really don`t know if it`s o.k. posting this here,
    but here it is anyway.
    (you admins` may move it to its appropriate place, and that`ll be o.k. and appreciated.)

    just posted this in my Sketchbook threads, but since i figured most of you
    don`t go there, i`d share it here too.
    this is my work process, demonstrated on a head.(how convenient, Patri !..)
    i tried keeping the explanations as simple as possible, though the actual working process is a bit more tedious than what you`ll see here.
    hope this`ll help those who was wondering,
    and those who didn`t give a flying **** - well... hope it`ll be of some service to you too.
    enjoy.

    I'm a fan of one layer painting (not literally) but this is a cool aproach, gotta try it sometimes. Thanks for the trouble & sharing!

    Hey Chuck. I'm trying your recipe. And I have a couple of questions. "Now the fun begins"... is it really solid white you use?

    And the opacity settings... is it always around 25%...?

    I think I'm doing something wrong. Its coming out a little odd. Its sort of working. I can see how it should work, but I'm not getting as much value range in the darker tones...

    And how much of the blur do you use?

    I'm experimenting a bit, but its hard for me to guess some of this, because I understand getting some of the early steps into a certain range feeds the next step...

    I'm gonna keep trying it though. I like how it speeds up the early steps and lets you focus more time on the details...

    many thanks again, guys.

    QUOTE]

    the "solid white" part is what you might call "painting light". since it`s laying the white color in an overlay blending mode layer - the white just brighten the color beneath it.
    so, if you have an image that is flat (no matter what color) this will "carve" out your form. (and to make this carving even more highlighted - just duplicate this layer. you`ll see - it will double the amount of "light" your form is getting...)
    about opacities - i don`t touch the BRUSH opacities. it`s always 100%, and i use the pressure sensitivity of the Wacom to apply my brush work.
    the layer opacities is something you`ll just need to experiment with, `till you
    find what works best for you.
    the blur, i use to make much of the elements come together (more or less..),
    so that lines, patches of color, etc` will all blend into each other, making it much easier to "carve" your image out.
    all of this is NOT an excuse for poor brush work.
    in the end - a good piece is all about the brush work, the detailing, the understanding of light&shade and its affect on forms and surfaces.

    Hey Chuck, thanks for the reply.

    Okay. I think I know what I did wrong. WHen I went in for the light layer, I think my overlay layer should have been set at a lower opacity. At first, the paint went on nearly opaque white, and I thought "how could he possibly be getting any variation in value with this?" so instinctively I reset the brush opacity, just like you said not to. I think I know where it got fucked up. I'm going to try again on a tighter sketch. That was another issue, as I got a little impatient to try the new layers technique and probably could have spent three more minutes cleaning up the sketch.

    I may have been too timid with the blur too. When I tried everything look either too blurred or not enough, but with the tighter brushwork on top, everything in yours seems to fuse together in a nice way.

    Very excellent. At least now I know more about layer settings.

    The duplicate and guassian blur steps make me kick myself for not thinking of that earlier. haha.

    Good stuff, Chuck.

    some people have been asking for a
    (quote) "fairly good head drawing Tutorial".
    so i did one.
    of course, it`s a very rough and quick walk-through,
    plus it`s somewhat of a "comics/cartoon" look, so
    don`t quit your head-life-studies-practicing just quite yet, people.

    here ya go, guys, hope it`s satisfactory:
    Chuck-E Tutorial + New head Drawing TUT.
