    Your rendering is amazing. I don't even know what to say at this point. Keep this thing updated!

    Awesome stuff all round. The clown is great. I really like the way your rendering seems so soft, yet quite sharp too.

    dude thats some lovely rendering. i really enjoy the way you render out more detailed, but still just with the light as weapon, parts from a very rough shape.
    thats all painter, right?

    Glad to see you start a sb, hope it's gonna be fed on a regular basis or else some fans like me might get real hungry (once the salina got agitated).

    Love first and last one. B-card is a quite original one too.
    So long...

    Thanks for all the props guys. For those of you who where wondering, most of them are experiments with Painter.


    1 and 2 where started in photo shop with a big soft circle brush and then a complex textured photoshop brush to loosely suggest the shapes. Then I go into Painter to polish up a bit. I like how photoshop and Painter compliment each other. It sounds like some of you guys are able to appreciate this too. Yes/No?


    Sometimes I think I should just use photoshop because it's easier/ more efficient (and for my professional work on particularly tight deadlines I do try to stick to photoshop); but Painter is a lot more fun and I think it makes things look a little better. Any of you guy feel the same way?


    The backgrounds on 3 and the last one are scanned in texture. And the happy B-Day is just pen and marker on a sticky note.

    I've tried to use painter...but i ALWAYS just end up scribbling around with the brushes making a colourful mess like a 5 year old ...it's fun but I simply cannot get to grips with it...so I struggle to try and make Photoshop more painterish but I usually fail..and simply plod along

    Looking forward to see more in the future Ben
