Ok, this is my first post. (ive been checking this site and boards for some time here, some very talented people here)
But to the topic, ive been drawing for ages. But when it comes to painting im absolutly clueless. Ive tried reading tutorials, color information, lighting, and i dont quite understand all that. So im starting to figure maybe the best way is just to try finishing some pictures (which i never do cause half way through i feel like they suck and move on, a habit i really need to break) So, i decided to do something simple, and ended up with this so far, its the flash. I figured a mostly one colored suit would help me focus. here it is so far...
i really just want some input on what you think i should do.(right now im just focusing on the suit) for those of you willing to read on, heres what i know about painting. (its not much)
*your supposed to carry surrounding colors onto the suit (such as the background. (which ive yet to do)
thats about it. Im using painter IX to paint it, ive got photoshop cs2,(and tablet) and im pretty comfortable with both programs, its just painting that elludes me.
please help if you can, id like to see if i can keep myself moving on this pic. any tips for brushes, colors, anything, would be great.
edit* i didnt put this in the painter or photoshop forums, cause i want help with pic, not programs
