now that we have some background story to your situation, they WIP should be fun to watch. There's nothing like a fire under your ass to motivate creativity. I was going to suggest finding some backup help around here or something, but that can blow your budget really fast. I got jammed up one night and someone here bailed me out. I didn't make anything after paying him and he gave me a discount for future work, which I gave him.

It was a lot of fun. I meet some good people. Nice to put a face to a name here. Roberto was much more hostile in person than here . Seriously, it was a good night. Hopefully next time we can address some of the marketplace issues that came up.

I thought it was that tempermental artist thing. I never realized that it might be that Napoleon Syndrome. Oh well, everyone knows big things come in small packages.

smackbringer, if all else fails, you can always buy Poser and a few models. Set them up and apply the Vallejo render plugin filter for rendering. I think Daz3d made that plugin.

I can't believe a moderator is trying to hijack this thread . See all the fun, you need to come to the meetings now smackbringer.

Well you have done all you can do. Too often customers point to a high budget product and say 'yeah we want something like that'. I've been in that boat myself often enough and you don't want to go there.

I don't know what you mean about a pro bailing you out tho.
Anyhow you told them and that's the main thing.

Ok getting back on topic.
This could be a topic on the dialy sketch forum.

Would you be willing to outsource it?
there are a couple of great sketch artitst that would do a great piece in that forum.

What meetings?

And I'm glad to meet you all so soon. This is pretty cool, I had no idea that this many people were local.

Man, that's a tough one. If you are going to tackle it, break it down into digestible bites to ease your anxiety. Try this:

1. Sketch your comp (hopefully the client can review a few thumbnails)

2. Redefine your line work in terms of light and dark by choosing three gray values: Lignt, Medium and Dark. Work out all your problems at this stage.

3. When your done with your Grisaille (grayscale painting) create a new layer and set it to Overlay, then fill it with a warm earthy color.

4. Flatten it

5. Then create another layer and apply your desired colors at different opacities (perhaps 30%-40%) while periodically changing between Normal and Overlay brush modes--whatever works at the time being.

6. Once you achieved a wash of your general color scheme, flatten it again and then tighten it up with more opaque colors (80%) while eye-dropping directly from the canvas.

Hope this helps. Good Luck.
