Hello CGtalkers! I think it's my first post(eh...I guess so, can't really remember :p) here at CGtalk. This painting is based on a speedpaint I did a while ago, some of you might have seen it at Sijun. The focus was to balance overall atmosphere, details, and the looseness...not very successful, as usual, I simply lost my patience after having picked details for a couple of hours, sigh. And you can easily find perspective and anatomy problems here and there, wasssup reminder: resolve this sorta problems at the first step!

It's done in Photoshop7, no ref was used. C&C are welcome, of course :)

this place is way to polished for my taste so I was very glad to see u post here wasssup. :)
hey wait a minute did u change the pic after u posted in Sijun cause if I recall right I remember some "sup" text on the bike?
If they should plug something on the front page it should be this picture wasssup, I really love this one. :)

One thing, the front tire as what I think and I am sure u know about it aswell has the eclipse too much bent towards the viewer. Maybe u could extend the front of the bike so it covers the tire. Just nit-picking though and not a big deal for the whole of the picture.
Good work here wasssup and keep up the good work. :)

see you
Matthew (Sijun)

Thanks guys, really appreciate your comments.

Matthew>> Thanks there! Yes I did update the pic, found the text on the bike too tasteless, eh...well artists with good tastes won't even throw a glance on such subjects I guess hehe. You're damn right about the perspective issue, good eyes! Yeah it's the same old lens problem, way too wide, should have closed it a little bit. Or, you can imagine that the front tire is slightly pointing towards...em, left. Sounds perfect :P Thanks again for the crit, good point.

Baron>> Wow, see who's replying, surprised to meet you in here mate! Kinda busy these days huh?

Perfecti>> Thanks. Yes details please eyes, always. But I just got 2-3 hours for this pic, so I had to focus more on the character and the bike, still, they are far from "finished".

If there are anatomy and perspective issues, they're minor and don't distract from the beauty of this illustration. I love the loose and textured brush work. Consider yourself 'front page worthy'.

Awesome work! And welcome to CGTalk :wavey:

Jesus thats amazing, what brushes do you use or how do you paint? lol general and strange question I know but im amazed by your quick and loose technique, espicially in photoshop ^_^!

Stunning piece, the technique and use of light is fantastic!
I think the bike has some proportion issues. The front tire is actually a bit large, and the bike itself a bit small. According to her bent knee, she would be about 6.5 feet tall on a bike of that type. Just an observation. Fantastic painting, digital? wacom? please more details:thumbsup:

I love this, and that princess pic is even more crazy, as I said before...
I just saw Feng Zhu's lecture here at 3D Festival - very inspirational! - and I think here's a good example that could use some of his advice, and start with a perspective grid and lots of construction lines... I think you know that though and you just want to get straight to the fun part, the color. :)
And being able to do lighting and texture like this, straight out of your head, I don't blame you, you're a mad coloring genius!

Amazing feedbacks, thank you all for the kind words, and mod, thanks for the plug :)

AgentJ>> Thanks! I use the hard round brush the most, it's simple and effective, some might consider it looking way too "digital" like, but hey, we're painting digitally aren't we? If I want an absolutely painterly result I'll do it traditionally. I do use a couple of texture brushes too, they are defined by myself, you can find necessary infos about "how to define brushes" in the Photoshop help file.

Tbonz>> Thanks. See, that's what comes out when a non-id/automotive-guy designs bikes :p And it's also an anatomy issue, the leg is too long, it exaggerates the problem too. Yes I use Wacom.

Steven>> Thanks sir, I'm flattered :) Yes I should have followed Feng's advice. I think the lack of a good construction drawing was one of the causes too, it's actually a speed sketch and I had no idea what I was going to paint. It could be an exciting trip, but I was simply not experienced enough to make things right.

Luna>> Yeah let's burn the trees hahahaha! ...er, ok I'm back, too kind there, thanks. I think Craig is tired enough of hearing praises and it's TOO expensive to take his time, can't afford that lol.

Kood>> I don't know what should this kinda stuff be called...speed-painting? If there's one place I can recommend it's gotta be the Sijun forums, check out the speedpainting thread, lotsa inspirations.

Ch3>> Thanks! I'll finish the tutorial section as soon as possible, thanks for staying.

Sorry, don't have the time to answer every reply, so I make it short here, thanks for your comments, I do appreciate them!

ah, the modern "art" inquisition has arrived. Look pal, your emperor is naked, has been for over a century now. Now go glue some videotapes together, or stack up some rolls of toilet paper with an apple on top, or something. Leave us alone to bask in the magnificent work presented here.

Fantastic stuff. It's going into the inspiration folder as soon as I get home. I did think of Craig Mullins right away, but I don't mind that in the least, as I love his work.

I simply lost my patience after having picked details for a couple of hours, sigh. And you can easily find perspective and anatomy problems here and there, wasssup reminder: resolve this sorta problems at the first step!

You wrote that you based this on a speedpaint, so it's kind of the second iteration then, where you tried to take a speedpaint to the next level?
How about this - and forgive me if it's a stupid suggestion, I don't really know - but what if you added a line-drawing step between the 2 iterations? Like this: take a speedpaint. Mute it under a vellum-like layer and trace construction lines over it, and draw more lines to correct whatever, then hide the construction lines, keep the correction lines. Shouldn't take that long because now you're not working with color, tone and texture all at once, only line. (Remember to flip it like Feng does, I tried and it works like a charm.)
THEN you break loose again, and do your second painting over or underneath those new lines using them as rough guides. This second version should now have better perspective etc, but still as loose and wonderful as the original. Would that work?

Very nice color and shape. I love that loose stlye of brush. I wish i could let myself go like that.

Being a rider myself something does not sit right in terms of scale. The bike itself seems too small for the rider. While at a stop, the rider's feet should just touch the ground. Her legs should drop nearly straight down. I figure guess she'd need to be about 2/3 of her present size for that bike. Her present stance is more like that would be on a cruiser.

Stahlberg
06-05-2004, 03:39 AM
Neil, this is what I'm talking about:
www.drawthrough.com/tutorials/perspectives.html
This is the extreme of the approach though, with some experience you can easily skip most of these grid lines and guesstimate, if it doesn't need to be so exact, which is what Feng did in his talk.

Sorry for the OT, Wassup, again I think it's an amazing image!

very nice style (thanks for the second post too of the ballerina). too much stuff has a 'polish' which steals the immediacy and dynamicism of the orginal idea... alot of illustration/art, I believe, is about striking the balance between the two..!
