Metrini,

You can do any of the OFDWs that you wish ~ however, most of the energy will be concentrated on the most recent OFDW, which at the moment is OFDW 007. But I will happily look at any work posted to any of the OFDWs.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

I thought I would go back and do this one since I skipped it. Pencil on paper once more...would have done it in charcoal, but I left that up in my studio. Had problems with the hand, and the more I fiddled with it, the worse it got...finally gave up. *sigh* I'm still experimenting with scanner methods as well...

Here I uped the contrast as high as it will go...interresting effect.

This one I just upped...kind of close, but still losing some stuff.

mybutterflyiris,

Hey there, one recommendation I might have for tweaking a scanned image is to try this 2 step process:

1. Desaturate the image (Ctrl + Shift + U, or Image > Adjustments > Desaturate)
2. Set the Levels to Auto (Ctrl + L > Click "Auto", or Image > Adjustments > Levels > Click "Auto")

This almost always helps my images. The desaturation bit is important ~ you'll get worse results if there is color information (for drawings), at least, so I've found.

You can also manually adjust the 3 sliders in the Levels window, the left slider (triangle) is for darks, the middle slider is for middtones, and the right slider for lights. Try experimenting with this and hopefully it will help.

I like the bottom version quite a lot ~ in terms of the drawing itself, I mean. Do you think you will draw the rest of the figure as well?

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

I actually recommend trying the approach Martin / erilaz is using, which is to use only grayscale values at first to build form. It's a great approach, and limits the set of factors with which you have to contend when digitally painting. Steven Stahlberg has a great tutorial on his website which outlines this method of painting. I definitely recommend checking it out!

Also, you may want to check out this demo I put together for a value study piece I did for OFDW 002:
TUTORIAL - Digital Figurative Painting from OFDW - by Rebeccak.

Samanthie did an incredible COLOR digital painting tutorial here:
TUTORIAL - Digital Figure Painting - by Samanthie

Hope these provide some useful information which you can then continue to use in your piece!

Cheers,

Phew! Been out of town for 2 weeks, came back to find out that my entire harddisk/mobo/windows was corrupted due to a worm. Talk about bad-luck! No worries, got a go at Painter 9 (real neat!) and have been visiting Steven Stahlberg's website and also Rebeccak's OFWD tutorial.

Still figuring out how to build forms using grayscale values and applying colours to it.

I know I'm ridiculously late with this but I was too busy with work at the time and I really wanted to do this one. I loved the photos, especially this one... full of character and light and colours




Here are my WIP pics.

Amerasu,

Beautiful work! Great to have you back in the OFDWs ~ I think at some point, if you would like to post a tutorial here on the Anatomy Forum, and call it TUTORIAL - Digital Anatomy Painting - by Amerasu, that would be great! You could include as many or as few step by steps for various paintings ~ I think this would really benefit the community as a whole, if you are interested.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak
