Hi Rebecca.. sorry I've not been in here lately! I plan to remedy this very soon! I have a question. I was planning on entering the Aphrodisia contest over at Aristata Publishing and I would dearly love to use one of the photos Hong has generously provided as a reference. I'd be very happy to share the progress of the piece over the next couple of weeks here in this thread in return, and if the piece should get anywhere in the contest, I would request that there be a link to Hong's website, at least, if not a more honourable mention. These pictures always create such wonderful visions for me, I'll more than likely do something for the thread, but knowing whether this would be okay will affect the level of work I put in. My thanks in advance.

Zepyhri,

The message I include in the beginning of these OFDW threads about not using Hong's images outside of this is probably at this point unnecessary ~ really, I included it more or less to encourage people to post their work here. However, Hong has all of his models sign agreements which basically makes the images his property ~ the models do not control their use. I of course would never wish to see the models or their images disrespected in any way, but of course somelike like you is never going to do that! Hong has all of these images on his website, and they are meant to be used as Artistic Reference ~ so doing what you propose is just that!

Best of luck in the competition!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

zng-Y,

Definitely jump in! It's not a matter of how good you are now, it's a matter of how much you want to improve.

I wasn't able to respond much in~depth yesterday to anyone's posts, but it looks like everyone is doing a really terrific job ~ I always learn so much from everyone, thanks for all the hard work!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

you can setup your worskpace as follows (CS2):
  1. open your reference: ctrl+o
  2. double the canvas width (if the width of the image is greater than its height double its height instead): image->Canvas size-> width 200% (or height 200%),Anchor

    the current contents on the top left corner, click ok.
  3. make a new layer: shift+ctrl+n (so that you don't ruin your reference in any way)
  4. go fullscreen: press the F key until you have maximized your workspace (that is, two times)
  5. paint.
ps.: while in fullscreen mode it can be useful to learn a few shortcuts. the most useful are:
  1. while holding the spacebar, click on the image to move it around
  2. b: brush, e: eraser, keys from 0 to 9: opacity settings
  3. ctrl++ ctrl+-: zoom in and zoom out
  4. ctrl+alt+z: undo

Here are a few shortcuts that I use all the time when I paint in addition to the ones already mentioned by xillion.

Brush size increase - close bracket ]
Brush size decrease - open bracket [
Brush hardness increase - shift close bracket ]
Brush hardness decrease - shift open bracket [
smudge tool - R
hide tools and pallettes - tab key

Hope this helps.
