Maladie,

You're welcome!

It doesn't really matter where you put your brushes ~ just make sure you know where you've put them so you can browse to them easily.

Quote: To load a library of preset brushes:

Choose one of the following from the Brush pop-up palette menu or Brushes palette menu:
  • Load Brushes to add a library to the current list. Select the library file you want to use, and click Load.
  • Replace Brushes to replace the current list with a different library. Select the library file you want to use, and click Load.
  • A library file (displayed at the bottom of the palette menu). Click OK to replace the current list, or click Append to append the current list.
Note: You can also use the Preset Manager to load and reset brush libraries. For more information, see Managing libraries with the Preset Manager (Photoshop).

To return to the default library of preset brushes:

Choose Reset Brushes from the Brush pop-up palette menu or Brushes palette menu. You can either replace the current list or append the default library to the current list.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Thanks, Rebecca. It works!

A quick start on one of the three portraits. This time I didn't do a sketch but tried to block in the masses straightaway. I tried to imitate the flashy, bold style of the portrait. I absolutely adore this guys style (and I had never heard of him before!). It took an hour or so in PS (no color picking from the original ofcourse).

These are very exciting and, though I am probably the least of the artists here, I thought I would give this a try. I am between probjects at the moment. I decided on:

Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824-1904)
Black Bashi-Bazouk
Oil on canvas, c.1869

This should be very difficult for me because I am not a "painter" at all, so we shall see how I do. I mainly do RT3D models and environments .

BTW - Someone mentioned
Ghoro's brushes ... that they downloaded them. Where would I find these? Did I miss them in this thread somewhere?

Sproth,

Looking forward to your contribution!

Maladie,


Fantastic start, can't wait to see you develop this!

Looking forward to seeing your work! Remember that this thread is about WIP, so feel free to post your work in progress pieces as you go.

Wow Rebecca, stunning and beautiful reference choice!

And Maladie is getting better by the hour while I am stuck with a bunch of cangaroos in my australian desaster.

*shakes fists*

Fear the turk's return! (albeit probably not for this one... )

Question

Hi Rebecca,

Im new to this and really looking forward to having a go. Ive had a bash tonight but I def couldnt call it my "best"

I was wondering does using the eye dropper and sampling colour direct from the pic count as plagerism or copying or is that OK?

Cheers

Ed

Dan Silverman,

No problem!

Mu,

The Workshop will continue for 4 weeks, by which time the Challenge will be over. Join us!

Ed777uk,

Welcome aboard! Typically speaking, tracing and sampling colors directly from the original source image is considered cheating. Trust me, you will learn much more by attempting to match the colors yourself.

Regarding Color, there are some good resources on the Anatomy Forum here:

Color Theory and The Human Figure - NUDITY
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=303793

I encourage beginners to start with Grayscale paintings, the process is described in depth here:

TUTORIAL SUMMARY - Anatomy Review 003 Shading Tutorial - Tutorial Material Only
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=351832

You can also see the best work from the extended version of that Workshop here:

SPOTLIGHT: Best of Anatomy Review 003: Shading Tutorial and Human Skull Exercise
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=349444

Looking forward to seeing your work!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Here is my initial sketch ... roughly 30 minutes of work (including the interruptions of my children who wanted to know what was going on ):



I have not completed the sketch (the rifle is not in there yet), but I have to head out. I will try to work on this later this evening. BTW - This sketch was done in Photoshop.

Don't have much time right now, so here's a quick thumb study. I may push it more later.

I hope I am not crashing this thread. You said you wanted wips, so I thought I would post as I go (or as I reach milestones). I really want feedback as painting has never been my thing. Here is the sketch over the background:
