Yo man looks cool, how do you like the tablet pc compared to using the regular tablet? is there enough room on the screen for all your tools and such? Good luck in your new thread

Cheers man, keep us updated

Well Im trying out all my art programs to see which ones suit me best for how I work.. Those first two pieces were done only in Alias Sketchbook Pro, the one with the girls (reffed from domai.com and femjoy.com) was done in opencanvas 4 (one was sketched in SBPro) and the other was an aimless brush test in Photoshop... next two will be painter and/or artrage!
smuli - not sure i see what you're seeing, but thanks for the crit..
ham-e - I like it a lot, the sensitivity isnt quite the same, but i think the advantage of seeing exactly what youre pen is doing outweighs it.. still would be nice to have that extra pressure sensitivity..
diego - thanks, i havent been to a lifedrawing session in so long, gonna take this bad boy with me for sure when i can..

Ok so here I tried going with as much artrage as i could...
this first step was just the drawing.. I didnt like how textured it makes the pencil stroke at first, but I got used to it... the pencil itself is pretty responsive, but the texture tends to hurt the accuracy a tad bit.. either way, the nice feel you get from it is a fair trade..
Artrage's layer system is horrible I found... there was no way to make a multiply layer that i saw, so instead i took it into opencanvas, which is my favorite program to render flesh and other soft objects with..
finally i took it back into artrage to add the juicy brushstrokes.. they are hard to control, but they add an extra layer of interest that you can only get with "thick" paint...

wedding dresses! why? um you'll see

ok back to the actual art.....here is the first stab at the "hades bride" challenge for the week... I did this first step in zbrush, using the "andrew jones" technique..
I liked the indication of lace, but the shoulder area started to look too "sci-fi", anything else that people can suggest would be great..

Yo man whats up, this work on the bride looks good! If your interested I'll give you my 2cents: I would try to incorperate some of the great elements from the first sketch into the second design, the second design looks too subdued and it's missing those great strands that flow around her. As I said tho great work!

ok and i know exactly how i can do it.. thanks ham

Hey, earlier today I went to the conceptart.org atelier life drawing session, it was cool, definitely need to do more figure drawing again.. I did these on my tablet pc.. the line drawing is just like using my favorite pencils and pilot pens, but ive yet to find the best way to lay down tones efficiently...
February 16th, 2007 #15
some quick sketches showing off my lack of talent when it comes to anything other than figures..

i think i saw u working on this at one of those drawing sessions. awsome stuff in here. u captured those poses pretty well. i really like how loose you are able to work while still conveying your forms really strong. anyway great work, id love to see more.

Along with doing these environment studies I'm also trying to figure out the most efficient way to add tone and color to these sketches, whether that means using 3 different programs to do it so be it. By the way, guess whiCh 3 I used...
kawakaze- yes that was me, and thanks

hey man i just read your reply in the old thread...i guess this one isnt as popular because you suck
hehe no really though,the latest enviro is impressive i think- i guess you could refine it a bit more if you wanted to but the sense of light is already tehre when i squint...
as for the hades bride...im not sure but i get the vibe that you want to make her look almost imprisoned maybe this is too cliche but a view from above looking down on her might express this more? just throwing ideas at you..dodge them if you want
umm thats about all figurs are brilliant but i expect nothing less

this thick paint 'painting ' is really cool .Man wish I had a tablet pc, ormabe just a tablet .
so cool thread.

haha,snap,how could i miss you starting a new thread? no wonder i didn't find anything new in my old subscription
anyways,i like alot of what you have. funny thing about the hades bride,one of the thumbs reminds me extremely of a brom picture i saw somewhere.
i like where the pic is currently going,but in my eyes she looks to innocent to be a bride of hades. i'd try to change it so she looks weary,like she was beautiful at first,but has seen too much to keep entirely sane. otherwise i like it.

pretty works serge... I get the feeling its going to be your new fav. medium...
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd

Ha, I knew the announcement would work!
IA - hey you know where you can find these elsewhere...
vigo - oh yeah, havent touched real paint in months..
Carnifex - Well according to the story, persephone was kidnapped, so it makes some sense to have a bit of innocence to her..
asoir - thanks
rodrigo - yeah I did raise the horizon above her... Maybe shoulda raised it up higher? hmm
here's a bit of a step by step for one of these landscapes:

Trying to get bolder shapes down quickly instead of a lot of choppy chicken scratch... let me know how it's looking
February 25th, 2007 #29
Oh right, so here are all the new stuff, thought I saw something about this somewhere. BUT yeah! that tablet of your is working nicely for you, i still need to get adjusted to mine.. god.. Love the last two enviros, like tom said, I also need to do the same. Have you done any enviros off life yet? I am going to give that a go soon, see how that turns out.
