Hi Rebecca,

Thanks for your comment , about my drawing experience with those apps, well, firstly I would have to say that I havent used Painter nearly as much as PS so I dont know the program as deep as I do Photoshop. With the paint tools, PS is fine if your not trying to recreate those traditional subtleties that Painter is designed to do, but PS's brush engine is quite powerful and will allow you to create most kinds of brushes, except things like watercolour dripping down your page and diffusing, etc. But you can create all kinds of rough conte, charcoal kinds of brushes...

I think PS is geared towards general digital painting of all applications (such as texture painting, compositing/matte painting), not so much traditional media, so that's why the brush engine is more generic than painters.

In that last skull I did, all i used was a simple hard edged brush, with pressure based flow, and 100% opacity. Nothing special.

So thats my comments on the programs...

Nice work all!

scorpion007,

Thanks for elaborating on those differences between Photoshop and Painter ~ it's cool to hear! Painter does take you a long way in terms of that more artistic effect, but sometimes you can too easily gloss over a real understanding of the details of a study ~ tho in your Painter skull piece you did a great job of capturing details ~ because with painting in any medium you get wrapped up in the physical properties of paint to the detriment of detailed, observational drawing.

At any rate, thank you for your thoughts on this, and I hope you will be posting more work!

Hi Rebecca,

First thanks for sharing your experience through CGtalk, with kindness and open-mind . I discovered your tutorials recently and i found them just great. It's really a pleasure to find such knowledges without buying books or schools.... So i decided to involve myself in the process. Here is my participation, not much time to do it, i tried to use 3 tones of shade, find it really hard........... But done with pleasure

Xillion,

Yep! I can definitely see it now ~ thanks! Great work ~ I definitely like the second one, tho in truth probably you could put the darker version as a 80% opacity layer over the lighter version and have a better result ~ the blacks may be a tad too black in the darker image now, but I do like the effect. Ah! And I'm happy you didn't use a 'live' model, because then we would have to send in the police!

inkonyto,

Thank you for your kind comments! I'm happy to see you are enjoying the lesson! Thank you for your post. Can you tell us something about your background? I'm happy to see you are participating!

hihi, i'm a bit confused, thanks for your interest. Here is my background : I'm from Paris (sorry for my english ), i draw since a few years, but without any formation or artistic education, just for fun. No anatomic studies, no opposing curevs, no methods...
Recently i had the impression to reach my limits, therefore i tried to search on the web for tutorials or lessons which can help me. If i can learn more about drawing, maybe i could progress... no ?

As i said, i discovered your tutorials a few days ago, "opposing curves" : Well, it really helps me : For exemple, knowing that human top body could be reduced to a peanut shape was like a revelation for me... Thanks for that...

Here is a few sketches i did recently, trying to use what i learned. Nothing great but believe me, it's better than that i usually do....

inkonyto,

Thanks for telling us about yourself ~ sorry to confuse you, it just helps for me to know what training everyone has artistically so that I know what they are interested in and what they want to learn. So thank you for telling us that you love to draw and are open to learning new things ~ that helps me in terms of 'teaching'!

I really like your drawings that you posted (Here is a few sketches) a lot, and I think that you should post them in this thread so everyone can see them:

Gesture Drawings - Post Your Best Gesture Drawings Here! - 2D TRADITIONAL / DIGITAL

Thanks for participating!

maj3d,

Good work! I see you really worked on the interior shading of the eye sockets, which is nice to see. I hope you will submit more of these! It's great practice, and I think pencil is a good medium with which to go. You might also try ballpoint pen and do consistent, smooth cross-hatching in small strokes to approximate the same effect as pencil. I think ballpoint pen is a great medium for these kinds of studies as well as charcoal and digital media.

Thanks for posting this!

Sorry rebecca, I sayd I'm going to do a skull today but when I uploaded it I found how bad it really was so I thought I'd finish it later but then I had to doodle with my friend over drawboard.
