Hiya. Very nice rendering.

A small thing, but i think the bloody hand in the background offsets the composition a little.

this clown is awsome and if my older sister saw this she would flip. she hates clowns and this thing is just done awsomely. maybe a lil more clean up on the face but its a great thought.

Thanks for your feedback!

I kinda agree about the hand offsetting the composition a bit... and originally, it wasn't planned to be there at all. I just happened to paint somethin resembling a hand, and then I rendered it a bit - and once it was there, i thought it sort of gave the pic a slight... funny edge, so i kept it.

Wow! How did you manage to dig this old thread up?! That effort makes you more than worthy of a comment to your reply!

I am afraid I have to disappoint you there though, since I don't have any tutorials really. But actually, I think it's not so much painting on the computer, as painting alltogether; in order to make good paintings, you need to know how to work with form and color, just as you would in real media. Then you will have to learn the tools of the software of choice, and then just.. do it.

The way I worked on this pic was very straight forward - only using round Photoshop brushes with the "flow" set to "pen preassure" . Starting by making a quick sketch, then blocking in the colors, then adding details. I don't know what more to say. Sometimes, it's so hard to describe "how to do it", because they way I work is just very much just scribbling away.

Hope this was atleast a tiny bit helpful.
