    The PaintOver Thread!

    WELCOME TO THE TPOT!


    Yes, a TPOT! A brilliant idea from CGTalk. The point of this thread is not to just post any image you would post in a thread; Post a thread, and if you get to a point where you don't understand the flaws people describe to you, bring it here! I love doing paintovers, they are an educational experience for both ends. I learn so much with every one I do.
    Other users can feel free to give paintovers as well, but I would like to say, if you are painting over with things you think are just "maybe correct", It is better to suggest it in words. I have seen some people in the CC recently saying "The _____ looks fine to me." When the ____ is actually totally wrong. This is BAD if nobody comes by to correct it, and I don't want that behavior to carry over into paintovers.

    Another reason for me starting this thread, is that a number of times I will spend 20-30 minutes on a paintover for someone who A) Doesn't listen or B) Never checks the thread again. It pisses me off to no end, so I hope this will rectify the situation. Also, it's easier for people to come to this thread than for me to fish through all the CC threads.

    All levels of completed work (except for extremley initial sketches) are encouraged for critique; Personally I run through the CC looking for prime candidates that I can do fast and effectivley; Those things are-
    Black and white lines, or flat colors with slight rendering. Generally if a picture is readable it is easy to do a paintover.

    Composition is an IMPORTANT aspect of illustration. If you just can't seem to paint-over a piece correctly because of it's setup, I highly encourage a quick thumbnail of a better composition.

    Let's have someone start us off then, and let the learning begin! =)
    (Admins, I hope this is a reasonable thread. )

    Hmm, I thought I remembered you starting this up once already Justin?

    Edit: nuki, I have no clue what to do with that @_@. You haven't started on 3/4ths of it. And Thinking isn't a bad thing you know.
