I love this thread, it is why I became a member. You have no idea how much reading through this thread has helped me, and looking at the WIP. Thanks so much. Someone over at gfx refered me to this thread.

I decided to give it a shot.

I just got Painter IX, and I have only tried it one time, I painted over Da Vinci. Titus was done in photoshop. I made some custome brushes to give it a harsh brush stroke, but nothing was able to match Rembrandts style.

1. The sketch I did using the technique someone on this thread used. Drawing horizontal lines from the image to the right of the image, making were the eye will rest etc. Then I draw virtual lines for major points on another layer, move them over to the right to make a type of grid. This way everything is located in the proper place.

2. Using a grid over my painting and rembrandts painting to know the colors are in the correct place.

Well, this was WAY to tedeous I am not cut out to be a recreationist of art. To boring, So I decided to just wing it and give it my own style. I was very suprised with my end result. It was only thanks to this thread my digitual painting came out well. Thanks so much, you guys/gals are awsome!

Critiques are most welcomed, anything that can help me be a better digital paintiner.

trying to see if this post

My other post with my image did not post, testing this one to see if it takes a while to show up or if I did something wrong.

Great work from all of you btw.

I just noticed these threads. Great idea Rebecca, its a great exercise to improve our skills. I realise its well past the due date but i thought id try and catch up. This one was more of a speed painting...

ecs design that is really good, how long did you spend, and what program, if photoshop, what type of brushes
Old 07 July 2006   #324
cheers architectus,

I spent about an hour and a half in photoshop cs2 using standard brushes (i think they are phsop's wet media brushes from memory) but with custom settings. The image was blocked out at about 800 pixels wide then sampled up to 2k for finishing.

I got alot out of it, so i think i will continue to participate in these threads.

cool, hey that is a good idea, blocking out at a smaller size, why did I not think of that.

Hi guys,

You know, I don't know why this is, but threads with new responses no longer highlight for me, so it's not easy for me to tell when a thread has been responded to unless I'm subscribed to it. I apologize for missing your posts, I did not see them until now!


Lovely work, it's good to have you aboard here. You are more than welcome to participate in older threads such as these, technically they never close, though of course I do encourage folks to participate in the most recent threads ~ the next OFDW 019 will be after August 4th, I hope that you can participate in that one as well!

EDIT: Am browsing through your site, you have some lovely, painterly work there. It will be a pleasure to see more of your work on the forum.


Really lovely work as well, and I'm really glad that these threads encouraged you to become a member. I'll be offline a bit in the next few days, but am glad I finally saw your post ~ really nice work with your copy, I hope you will participate in OFDW 019 as well.

Also, I hope both of you will participate in this ongoing Workshop:
