Hey thanks man appreciate the compliments! Truth be told 2 weeks ago when i first started i was on the verge of throwing it out the (proverbial) window. Had to take a step back and do something else. I was distracted with work related stuff and was becoming restless with the sudden cold turkey without my daily dose of games. With the path of exile entry locked in, i can go back to my original picture. I'll show it all once its done. Not entirely videogame related but sod it, just pretend its some RPG character.
I wish i could say it was a secret technique and brushes, but yeah one of the advantages of digital painting is i can use technology to do the heavy lifting. In this case its multiple blue layers and guassian blur. Oh and i have the power to undo any mistakes or changes...It's got a depth of field shader going! How'd you get a shader to run in a paintbrush??
A tip my hat to your skill!
oh alright i'll upload a few pics in the usual topic to sate the demand.
Fantastic! You might be just a tad better than me. If someone here owed me money, I'd ask their opinion on that.ok thought i might upload my WIP for the Chivalry 2 artwork.
In the grand scheme of things? as long as its not plagiarism you can use whatever strategy works. As the old saying goes: a bad artist copies. A good artist steals.I can only paint bald heads. That's it. No people with hair. No environments. Just bald heads. AND, I get the colors directly off of the digital picture I'm looking off of, which may be cheating. I'm not sure of the art rules.
Thanks. Loved the video, too. Even at high speed, I saw a couple of things I could do differently.In the grand scheme of things? as long as its not plagiarism you can use whatever strategy works. As the old saying goes: a bad artist copies. A good artist steals.
Some speed painters take a photo and use that as a basis for their drawing. as it captures the mood, colours etc. in some cases its the only realistic choice when time is short. See the link below for an example:
Theres plenty of tuts on how to draw the head andrew loomis one for example is pretty simple. i don't quite have the skill for lineart; i need the mess of scribbles and i need the underlaying structure etc. How some artists just draw a face infuriates me sometimes, probably because they practice like hell going to drawing classes and i do it for a hobby etc.
Must admit i do draw bald heads when i practice as well, but its mostly a cookie cutter process although theres no shame using references (in fact its encouraged). Sometimes i just copy other artists for practice to see if i can harness their powers or learn a thing or 2. When it comes to art i like to learn not just the how, but the why part.
Thanks! that bloggif thing is helpful. I usually make images of all art and always wanted to find a way to show them all without making 10+ posts long and been looking for something to make it interactive.That's great work! Love the stages pic
Thanks!That archer guy that got turned into a banner? His agent is on the phone and wants to have an unpleasant chat with you.
Really good work! 😍
You can indeed, it's what we do in the Beautiful Game Appreciation thread.But can you upload a picture on here from your PC? If YES how?
