Welcome to ART Fundamentals week at the Daily Sketch forum.
The idea is to go back and practice core skills for one week.

* They can be done on any medium.
* If you wish, you can add a brief text description about your piece.
* Only original compositions. No "tributes" or plagiarizing.
* The topics will be posted every day between 10:00 - 12:00 am US EST.
* The artist also has to post total length of time it took (Thanks Clanger for the idea) and program used.
* Only final pieces can be posted on the thread. They must have been done AFTER the topic has been announced.

Hey Roberto! Great idea to go "back to basics", however I have one question... Seeing as there is no "subject", does this mean that we can draw pretty much whatever we want as long as it displays an understanding of two point perspective?

RobertoOrtiz

Depending on the responce we get from this thread, I wiil determine if we add subjects to the fundamentals threads from now on.

The 'Haunted house' topic is begging for a twisted three point perspective... But maybe thats where the challenge is - find the spooky atmosphere in a simpler way...

how do you paint straight lines to a point (in photoshop)? I know the shift button but that one only makes a straight horizontal line and a straight vertical line. If you keep holding shift then you can paint any straight line you want but it is always connected to the other lines. So my question is how do i paint fast straight lines that are not connected to each other?

Make sure the pen pressure option for your brush is turned off, then click once where you want the line to start, then hold down the shift key and click once where you want the line to end.

I like the idea of still having a topic for fundamentals. It gives you a starting point.

You can just use the 'line tool' (keyboard shortcut: U), but make sure that the 'fill pixels' option is selected (not the 'shape layers' or 'paths', its the three little icons at the top left of the tool option toolbar). And next time please give some information about PShop version You are using...

Her0d - Using the line tool, is there a way to apply different brush strokes to the line, or does it just create a clean line? I was suggesting the other way of doing it because I thought that would be the only way to "paint" a line.

yonna
02-21-2005, 05:18 PM
crazy3dman, ok i think it works by painting a dot by resting the pen on the point for almost one second and then holding shift to the next point.

her0d, i tried that tool but it makes for every line a separate layer, i lose control on my overview there. By the way, i use ps cs.

Hm, the only way of 'painting' the line with the 'line tool' is - as far as I know - setting the mode to the 'path', then drawing some bezier curves or just straight lines, then choosing 'stroke path' from the 'Paths' tab flyout menu (or pressing the small button at the bottom of the paths tab). There is also a setting for 'simulate pressure' there, it can be useful sometimes...

Best guess/freehand is an option. Or if you use a tablet you can tape a sheet of paper to it, draw two vanishing points and use a ruler for all your horizontal lines.

OpenCanvas for sketching; Art Rage for background; GIMP for final processing.

Total time 2.5 hours(!) This image wans't so much finished as abandonded... I am not happy with the coloring on this one. And it needs much more detail, but time waits for no man....

Hey guys...
It's nearly Eleven thirty , it's snowing (?) and I have to go to bed... You guys are ruining my beauty sleep keeping me up all night sketching!
(But I don't think I'd have it any other way! In the words of everyones favourite fast food chain - "I'm lovin it!" )

The only problem is, there has been loads of strange noises outside, and after drawing this I'm too scared to try and go to sleep... WHAT WAS THAT???

Hey Enayla! GET YOUR CAT AWAY FROM MY DUSTBINS!!!

Sorry about that... Anyway, here's my pic... It took about 2 hours in the shop of photo...

i watched "the ring" and "the grudge" the other day. so i guess this is going to be more of a haunted appartment instead of a haunted house.

Pencil on paper. its taken about 2 hours so far. I took a bunch of work in progress photos as i went along so mabie ill make a little tutorial out of it later. Im gona go eat dinner but if i feel like coloring it ill update later tonight. at the very least ill make a value study. Theres no mood to it right now. :sad:

BTW nice work J-Griev! i like the color! sometimes less is more i guess :)

EDIT* Heres the color piece, Spent a good 2 hours coloring, so this is a 4 hour "sketch" LOL :D

Great resources, especially the diagrams by Kevin Hulsey. I tried something i never did before: 3 vanishing points and tilted horizon out of the image plane. Illustrator and Painter, 4 hours and i still rushed the painting, shading is killing the composition.

got the idea from my favourite haunted house, BeetleJuice.

gulkan, perspective helps the composition a lot, great sketch, also like the shading of the floor as it has a marble like appearance.
Thany, amazing, like always.
Hym, yours is very nice, and the color scheme reminds me of some great drawings by codenothing :thumbsup: I donīt think the shading has ruined everything, keep up!

I started out with an image with a whooooole lot more of building on the left but it took me so long to do the bit I HAD done, I decided to crop it off and go to bed.

Never mind. I'm in the process of doing another one so Mr Ortiz can't fail me for not doing it right... :)

Thank you for the positive comment.
Yours was the premonition of the next topic "Black & Blue".
Coincidence? Besides that it’s quite eerie on its own.

bealobo (http://www.cgtalk.com/member.php?u=5278)
I am glad you noticed the little details. Thank you for the nice feedback.

Hym (http://www.cgtalk.com/member.php?u=32269);
Perspective is right on, almost immersive with cozy atmosphere of gentle palette. Well done.

Well, I think over all you made a nicely worked out perspective sketch, but in your design you stayed too constant in terms of spacing and organizing your house, which is evenly divided into three towers more than it is a house with a few towers in it. If you were to make the roof larger so that the middle tower basically would poke through, but the roof would be clearly from the right section over the middle....crap....I hate describing that stuff...even my german runs out on me in such cases.....just think bigger roof so that it looks like a big house and not just three towers that are visually to evenly spaced and even proportioned! The all appear to have the same width, too!

So well...if you want me to, I can make you a little sketch, no problem!

But you certainly have the principles down, more so you've got all these curious details in the architecture, which I find really entertaining. So you shouldn't be too unhappy at all!

Thanks for the comment, Taron333.

I see what you mean, it really are basically just three towers...Funny how you sometimes just don't see something so obvious yourself. Sure, if you want to you can have a go at modifying my sketch. I liked yours too btw, especially the lighting.

Ok, will have a go at the mafia topic now,
