eggsrgood,

Great to hear a bit about you! My best drawings are done using either charcoal pencil or ballpoint pen, eg, traditional materials. I enjoy digital painting, but confess that I enjoy traditional media far more ~ though the messiness factor prevents me from working with it, as well as the sheer frustration of ruining hours of work with a few false steps ~ digital work is slowly becoming my modus operendi (in terms of personal work ~ I've done digital work professionally, including some use of Maya *cries over Discreet's acquisition of Alias*).

At any rate, great to see that you are getting back into 2D ~ you should also participate in the 15 Minute Sketchathon, which this week has the same poses posted in that thread as are posted here.

Looking forward to your update! My first recommendation when beginning a digital painting is to fill the entire bkgrd with a midgray, and then work up and down in value from there using a 50% opacity and 50% fill soft round brush using only the colors of black, white, and gray. Give it a try!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Wow, David, this is going to be a beautiful piece! That hand looks amazing! Are you using PS or Painter for this? It seems so many folks here are getting accepted for the Painter book, perhaps you ought to try out!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hi
Dave
Great color, really rich, and luminous, that arm is turning out nice, the elbow looks
fantastic, really fine detailing there...Great job so far. Can't wait to see how it's
going to look when it's done, should be great I think.
Take Care
Glenn

David: Love the lighting in your painting!

Rebeccak: Where the CG go in your sketch? Well I might still have a problem with her waist...

Dark3D,

Hehe, working on a CG version. Trying to keep a balance. Better! You're really doing a fabulous job at rendering!!! Keep up the good work! Hmm...funny stripe across the knee ~ but I know it's WIP. The arms and upper torso look terrific. The hand might be a little too regular / even? Love the play of pink and green...I think filling the bkgrd with a neutral tone would really set her off.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Wow thanks for all the kind word's I'm quite flattered .

~RebeccaK: I'm an all round Photoshop guy, remember I come from the a (semi)background in the graphics design, so Photoshop was a natural choice for me. But if Ballistic ever plans to publish a PS book I might try out for it (I don't really understand why theirs not one out already~ properly because we don't see any Adobe ads anywhere ..*hehe*<-- thats a joke by the way I'm not saying anything bad about Ballistic media I think they do fantasic work *phew* ). nice drawing by the way ~ could use a bit more detaling on the arms and head *hehe*.

~Spirit Dreamer: Thank. Im quite inpressed myself by how its turning out.

~Dark3D: Well you know I cant really take responsebillyty for the lighting, thats all Hong Ly. I just opserve, interpelate and paint thats all .


~David René.

You're welcome! Well deserved!

Ok, this is just starting out...I've spent about four 15 minute sessions on this, for a total of an hour:

David, this one is fab! I love the colors, and I think you did well on the hair I´ll pull out a chair and sneek over your shoulder as you finish this one.

Nice one RebeccaK! I'm trying to tackle the same ref image and kind of embarrased at my progress. I'm trying out the method you suggested and still getting my head around Painter cause I love the traditional brush types. Keep em coming
