adding more detial

i will try to fix a solid image thread asap in the mean time please click links
Hey good start there-- I'd especially like to see this made with more hard-edged brushes.
This looks like something to be put in the "Tips, tricks, and tutorials forum" instead, though. And if you post the images to be displayed directly on the page it's easier to follow.
And by the way there's a lot of free learning resources. If you want videos YouTube seems to have a quite a few recorded speedpaints.
DeviantArt, (if you "browse" under the tutorial section in the Photoshop subcategory) has a ton of step-by-step tutorials, with an added bonus of being able to ask its maker questions.
And I have seen some of the "higher ups" publish books with tutorials but they're not exactly cheap either.

so hopely this time things will work....and stuff...
that's the problem though it's all speed painting no one ever says hey im reducing opacity here or i'm adding a screen layer there or hey this started out as a thumbnail and then worked over it at a hundred precent ...we should mak a basic bible for the wacom and stuff.....nub here thanks for responding!
Browse through this.
A lot of it isn't really too concept-art related, nor is all of it done by pro's, but if you flip through them you're bound to find some insightful technique nuggets.
There are a couple concept artists there who put out some good tutorials, too but I'd have to dig for the links...
But a good thing to remember about deviantArt is not to expect any good critiques from them-- I think they're either afraid of hurting your feelings or don't care enough. But, to counter what some think, it's certainly not useless as a whole.
And as for the Wacom "Bible" I'm pretty sure the installation disk comes with a setup guide.
