Hey Goro! I've made a set of new brushes for Photoshop to look a bit like graphite pencils and made this "almost" quicky within about an hour while making brushes....lot's of fun to draw with...or rather paint actually... (no reference, ifn case anyone cares!?)

"Spend more time on the anatomy." ~ Goro

I know!!! >_< I absolutely suck at anatomy! I will never get it right! *sobs* Oh! Few days ago, I decided to tell my teacher in art class that I'm going to study anatomy for my sketch book homework... so now I've commited myself to this.. hopefully that would keep me focused on improving in that area. He expects to see me doing that.. so I can't really go out of this... :D

I would love some citiques (from goro and anybody good in anatomy) when i get a chance to post some of my anatomy-study sketches. That's only way I could improve. Thanks! ;)

Anyways goro.. love your futuristic buildings! :D Keep it up! :D

my question:
@GORO: Did you use some sort of 3D setup to see the lighing before you painted that, or did you completely paint from your imagination? I really like that and had to look for some hints that it wasnt a photo or 3D pic ;)
really great!

Here's mine.. I gave opencanvas 1.1 other try and plus used Painter Classic for some blurring effect. 30 min or 45? Could be 1 hour? No idea. I'm surprised how easy it's to make skin tone in open canvas... I can't seem to do the same thing in Painter or Photoshop... but I think I learned how opencavas brush works enough to do some adjusts in Photoshop.. hopefully it would be almost like that brush.. *shrugs* Any tips?

please tell me, what working resolutions did you use? You certainly did not paint them is this small res, did you? :)

ps: if i could find a scanner anywhere I would like to share my latest drawings and get some critique, argh i need a scanner...

Taron333
10-17-2004, 09:42 AM
Thank you, Tuzz! I sure did! It's exactly at the resolution I painted it in. I think it would be a lot more inconvenient to paint that at a high resolution. The cool part is, I made them with openCanvas and kept the event-files, so I could in theory render them out in higher resolutions to go back into them to add detail....but yeah....I sorta don't think that'll ever happen, mostly because those are literally studies....special only for my own spiritual reasons, but by far not where I want to go....

Hey taron I Love your photoref picture! Didn't think that it was from you because of the different use of colors. I think using ref sometime is a really good thing. In most of your pictures I hardly see sunlight. I think this bothered me a bit. In your last two images I see
great light athmosphere. Looks really great. The organic thing does not really fit in imo.
The shading is different than the mountains...maybe the perspective is a bit off.

Anyways great stuff there!

Still don't have a scanner, but I decided I just do a similiar to the ones I did.
Only this time I tried the OpenCanvas and Wacom,
turned out quite okay, only i dont get these sharp edges I liked in my other drawings that much, still have to get used to this wacom more.
anyway here it is, critique and opinions certainly much welcome!

edit: I reloaded the image into Photoshop and added some lines, to make it a little clearer, it really bugs me that I cant do that in OpenCanvas, and the cursor is never exactly there where you paint, always a little to the right and down...
whatever :)

Cheers
Goro
Thank you! And yes, you were right...the lighting wasn't right...the highlight was offset to a far lower position of the sun...I corrected it a bit. I really enjoy the absurdity of the image, squeezing in such a different type of element. I personally really like it, otherwise I wouldn't have done it, obviously, but I believe it's simply a different genre....impulse art type of thing, if it is art, I wouldn't want to impose on that, actually. Anyway, great feedback and yes, I still have a lot of challenges with realism and can't foresee the moment, when I will reach something really adequate, but it's one heck of a great journey. A little anxious but highly motivated. Eventually this kind of exploration will change my approach to shading in 3D as well, as I anticipate to encounter what always was and still is bothering me about it. Seeing the air to breathe is what only rarely comes across...if I find it in painting, I may find it there, too!

Thanx, again!

These pictures are really nice!

I'm somewhat embarrased signing up because there is so much here that is far beyond my current ability. I hope I can learn more here and improve. I wish I could take art classes of some kind, but with my current situation, it's not possible.

I did this one with Photoshop with a laptop's touchpad in about 30 minutes. I used this (http://img78.exs.cx/img78/1413/quickpaintref.jpg) as a reference.

Ra1der.. your painting was very good..





People like Goro and others.. I forget the others names because i'm fairly new (Taron.. blah blah you regulars).. They have really inspired me also. Goro might not be the best artist here but in the speed painting cgtalk feild, his work is utterly amazing (for me atleast).. It's by far the most real and close to my art i've seen. Or atleast what I want to create as my art. :) I see the process and the influence with goro, thats whats creates my inspiration from his work.. In the short time I've been veiwing cgtalk and the speed paintings. I've noticed progression in Goro's work, that has transfered to my own learning of light, composition, art and my own potential for that matter..



I'm a little drunk as i type this.. but.. :)



Goro and others at his skill level.. I hope you know how much you affect artists around the world. Every great artist from the masters to the lucky. Couldn't have done what they done without other creative influences from people specificly.

Cheers to your guys and digial art revolution.. :)

AsurA... greater drunken words were never spoken. i agree wit ever word too. not to get too sappy... but this forum and its participants has forced me to work harder every day. i have not had a good place or people to challenge me artisticly since i got back up here (geographicly). since i have stated coming (electronicly) here i have been made to realize just how important it is to keep pushing and creating in order to evolve beyond our current skills ( havd been somewhat complacent with myself... bad me, bad me).

Goro - which program are you using? and what brush do you use to get those brush stroke looking lines(it appears to me to be a top layer that you paint over your images)? love the one in the market(or docks..?)

AsurA
10-20-2004, 06:38 PM
Goro's mentioned before that he uses a stone textured overlay's at the end of a sketch sometimes.. Than I believe you mask the texture and erase anything you don't want.

That perticular one your taking about looks like a concrete texture maybe :) Correct me if i'm wrong. ;)

Goro
10-20-2004, 10:43 PM
captain chapo I usually use only Photoshop for my paintings. Sometimes also painter or open canvas. In this case I painted a oil strokes texture in painter to use it at softlight layer in PS.

So Asura It's not a stone texture ore concrete. The texture is just painted
in paiter with the oil brush. I don't erase areas though. I jus paint over the texture again on a
extra layer to get rid of texture parts I don't want.

cheers!

Goro and Balistic, thats a very nice speedy.:D
btw Balistic, would you mind to share of what software are you using and how can you achieve such sharp appearance?:)
I use Corel Photo-Paint 10. The key to sharpness is to work on a number of layers, and lock a layer's transparency when you don't want to affect its silhouette. You can always unlock the layer and soften its edges in appropriate places later.

Goro
10-29-2004, 05:34 PM
tuzz you used very nice colors!
There were some thinks that could be done better easily so I just made a little
overpaint. Hope you don't mind.

The trees in the foreground and the the background are almost the same size. So the distance
doesn't work well. Another thing is that they have the same color value. Ach ich schreibe mal
auf Deutsch weiter das ist einfacher. Je ferner die Objekte im Hintergrund sind desto mehr
nehmen sie die Farbe des Himmels (oder Hintergrund) an. D.h. im Vordergrund sind die objekte meist dunkler
und kontrastreicher. Objekte im Hintergrund genau das Gegenteil, also heller und kontrastärmer.
Das Volumetrische Licht funktioniert auch nicht so gut. Es ist viel zu stark und in diesem
Fall darf es kein reines weiss sein sondern so mehr ins beige-pinke....und viel schwächer...
ich habe es im Overpaint nur angedeutet wollte es nicht zu stark machen. Dann habe ich noch
Sonnenlicht, dass durch die Äste bricht versucht darzustellen. (Die hellen Punkte auf dem Boden)
Das macht das ganze Bild noch ein bischen wärmer und interessanter.
Wie schon gesagt die Farben finde ich schon richtig gut! Muss nur ein wenig mehr
Tiefe in's Bild. Weiter so!

your pic is very interesting, i do not like the sky, i think there is something missing, perhaps some more detailed clouds or whatever you think might look good there :)
but i really DO LIKE the trees and the shadows they cast, especially the first tree on the right, that looks fantastic to me.
did you use a costumized brush or is that one ps-built-in?

Brian: do you refer from photos? or paint everything from imagination (curious about lighting esp.). When I use references, Im ok, but when not, Im really lost:rolleyes: . Could you give me some hint how to improve in this?


I usually don't use much reference, but for that one I started out looking at this photo:
http://www.bprince.com/ClearingReference.jpg
obviously, I deviated from it quite a bit, but looking at the reference gave me a direction to go in, instead of my usual routine of spinning my wheels trying to decide what I want to paint.

With regards to lighting . . . man, I have a lot of theory that I've developed in my head, but I tend to be less than coherent when I'm trying to verbalize it. One thing I can defintely recommend though is that you spend some time playing with lighting in a 3D app without using any GI or radiosity. When I'm lighting a painting (after I've got silhouettes of my objects roughed in), I arrange the elements of it in my head like I'm seeing it a 3D program. I'll imagine, for example, that I want the camera (viewer) to be in shadow, lit only by scattered blue skylight, and I want the mid-ground to be lit with a warm key light from an out-of-view light high and to the left. I then imagine myself at the light's position and use that vantage point to figure out where my cast shadows need to go, and which faces are receiving the strongest illumination. Shadows are just as important as light. Being bold and throwing a shadow across a scene can create instant visual drama.

One thing you might try is to set up a small still-life on your desk. Get some fruit, or some pottery, and arrange them nicely, and light them with a small desk lamp or flash light so that you get some interesting shadows. Painting from life like that will teach you more than working from photos, because with a photo, the image has already been exposed and flattened for you . . . working from life, you're forced to actually think in three dimensions, and that's a skill that's really useful when you're lighting a scene (in 3D or 2D).

See now I'm rambling :)

@xanthan gum: Hehe thanks for the kudos ^_^

If I see right you use a simple hard brush it might be helpful to experiment a bit. I don't know what program you use but painter and photoshop cs have some very nice brushes. Also don't forget pencil/pen and paper, black and white art usually looks better when it's made by hand and for some people skething just goes better on paper :)

And don't forget the tricks: Blending in a texture, fancy brushes and blending modes. Here's a nice tutorial: http://www.supalette.com/nuke/html/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=4

11-07-2004, 06:24 PM
thnx balistic
jawine I don't know...I freaked out and blocked in some colors with custom brushes:)
Then I saw some shapes and I created those bots. I added a texture and played also with some layermodes. Had no time so everything was very spontanious. Sometimes things go
really fast...sometimes I need more time.

Tried something different today.
