My name is Bevin Akers and I have a BA in Art with a focus in painting. During my last year of college I switched over to digital painting and I've found I really enjoy it. One of my goals is to have a few pieces of mine in ImagineFX or Exposé.
I'm looking to learn more about rendering skin better, since my palettes are a bit muddy at times, how to better see and understand color, since my values aren't balanced I've noticed and it tends to stay in the mid-range, and how to integrate the figure with the background better. I primarily use Photoshop but I'm also trying my hand at Corel Painter because I want to mimic traditional media in a digital fashion.
I look forward to your critique.
This is one of my first digital paintings.
