Keep up the good work!


Thanks Reb - The reference I am using is a bit too over exposed as well. I thought about redirecting the light source, but I guess I could tone it down by doing what you said. I am going to need help adding color. How do y'all add color to the already greyed values in the digital world?

If I squint, the darkest lines (e.g. in the hair) and the grey become one value mass. That mass is your dark. What isn't in this mass is your light mass. Massing is seen when you squint. Approaching a figure in this way, has always helped me avoid spottiness and confusing light sources in the pic. It is pretty much instinctual for me when I draw or paint.


Aztc - that is helpful advice. I will try that tonight. I assume you loosen your squint as refined you get.

jararuma - Thanks for your comments. I feel like I am progressing with the help and advise from everyone here.

Here is tonight's update on my bending woman as jararuma puts it. I think I know where I am going with this painting. I am still just adding brush strokes. I did make her a little more greyed from the advice of Rebecca. That took more time than expected, but then I was able to work the details in a little more.


OK Apparently Imageshack has decided to try and think. It has decided that my digital art has turned into porn. I will investigate and get back with you. This is like photobucket all over.

Damn, I must be a great artist. It will allow my previous entries but this last one must be so realistic it blocked it with the following:



So if you want to see my latest and greatest master piece that confused the bran of a website, you will have to wait.

Here is the link to my account on Deviant Art. You can view it there. Let me know if it is offensive like the big red banner above so thinks.

Let's give this another try.



I do not know why it is working now. This is what I submitted this morning. i refined her a bit from last night. However, last night's rendition was not accepted. That is odd.

Geesh, aggie, I'm sorry for the crazy ImageShack notice - I guess the best I can suggest is to cover the so called 'pornographic' aspects and host your censored images to imageshack or Photobucket. I really haven't found a much better alternative except your own website hosting.

Sorry for that.

Well, it seems to be working now. It was just that one update from last night.

NR43 - Thanks. I have seen this before. I will try it. I assume you'd use a different layer for the color?

OK another post. I am so excited about this one. I feel like I am finally coming around to figuring this out. I am fixing to start my coloring stage. I hope my enthusiasm continues.

The Bending Woman (name from jramauri) Grey scale



OK NR43 - I did the color thing, but you may not notice I got color outside the edge. Is it just I need to stay in the lines? Well, do you think I did it right? I just picked a skin tone and broad brushed it over. That seem to simple. I must have done something wrong.

hi aggie,

I dont know if you painted the lady on a seperate layer (one layer for the background, one for the lady, one for the color), because then you could right-click the lady layer in the layer palette and choose the layer transparency and then specify wether you want to paint inside or outside of the selection only with the three toggles in the bottom left corner of the image window.

If you got lady and background on one layer you will simply have to be careful about your strokes.

BTW, if you don't have your figure on a separate layer you could also just fill the whole color layer with a colour (e.g. via the colour fill bucket).

did not read the whole process behind it, but I hope this helped...

Mr. Mu - Thanks for stopping by and checking my progress.

The lady is on a seperate layer from my colorized layer. However, when I toggled the transparancy I could not get it to paint. My color layer is set for the following:


You can probably barely read this. But the background is a seperate layer and yes I did use the fill feature.

anandpg - Thanks for the inspiring words. I feel good about my progress too!

They lovely thing about digital art is going back to the sketch to add. I am finishing my lady up and figured out what to make of this piece of art. I am going back to one of my favorite myths of Psyche and Cupid. So I finally found a picture reference I could use for Cupid. I froze the other layers so I could get back to the sketches and started sketching Cupid. Here is what is coming about:

Ecstasy of Psyche


And no it is not going nasty. It is supposed to be her being swept off her feet and flown into the heavens. I can kinda see right now it may be taken the other way. I hope to calm that down once I start rendering it.
