I'm glad my ideas are liked, Roberto :)
"Golly" comes from Monarch of the Glen, a Brit/Scottish series, where a personage had a nickname of Golly. He once got this from when he got intimate with a woman and upon opening his pants she exclaimed ".... golly!"
Oh yes, oh yes, the subject is that naughty. Nah, it's just an outcry of shock, like "strewth!" ;)

As long as it's not about those strange little black dolls. They freak me out!
08-05-2005, 04:06 AM
Oooo...yes. Perhaps I'm a little naive about the world, but when I googled "Golly" in the image search, those dolls were the majority of what came up in the results...until today, I never would have associated them with that word. Forgive my ignorance...at least I get to learn something new today. :D
Anyone know more about those dolls?
I'll see if I can come up with something for this one...all I can think of is cowboys and the Green Acres series! Ha ha!

Nice one Xodibox, I like it. I like yours too, CodeNothing.
Here is mine. I am not very happy with it. I am trying out a new set of tools each time I use Painter and I am trying to speed up as well.
Painter 9, about 90 min

looks good 11th! you may want to use hard edge brushes as much as possible though, the soft edges are overpowering. cool gorilla guy though.

codeNothing, I was wondering which brushes you would suggest. I have only been using Painter for 7 days now and it is the first painting program I have really used. The learning curve is a little daunting for me what with all the sliders and brushes and such. It is hard to know what to pick. I totally agree with you on the soft problem in my piece, I did it with the airbrush tool to try it out.
Any hints to better Painter use would be appreciated from anyone BTW. I am sticking to using Painter until I have it down. I hope to understand the program fairly well by the end of the year. I am planning on doing as many of these DSG sketches as possible during that time for practice

Unfortunatly i have never used painter, i use photoshop. But im sure i can tell you my process and you apply it to painers tools, they realy cant be that different.
So i never use soft edge brushes like airbrushes unless im painting things like atmosphere light, fog, or making a color dodge layer or something. For structure, and sketches, i always use hard edge brushes at different opacitys. Usualy i make the brush flat and angle it like i would a real paintbrush. Heres what it looks like in photoshop...
you can rotate the little brush tool there, and change the opacity. I think a lot of people use airbrush because they think it 'blends' better. But you should do your blending by making a flat color, and then building up the next color with a 20% opacity. The ball on top was a dark purple cercle, then i went over and over it with a lighter color making many strokes that follow the surface of the object. Not only does it make it look more solid, it give it some 'life'.
if you arnt satisfied with the blanding of the hard edge brushes, you can always go back over them with the smudge brush and sharpen tool like the ball below it. (i used a flat speckle brush to smudge with) and it gived you a very 'painted' look.
