A raider guy!
That is one unusual contribution to say the least. The eye (?) looks a bit strange.
It looks strange at all..
It's meant to be a goggle...I've got the idea of doing a comic about this guy, but I'm still learning how to draw with the tablet (or paint, actually...)
Maybe you should draw it on regular paper, scan it and colour it with your tablet, instead of doing all the work with your tablet.
The piece is unusual, but it's got some Permeke-quality to it, so I don't particularly hate it. Keep training!
:/ I hate doing that...I know it's probably limiting me, but doing it all digital just appeals to me more.
I think that my problem is largely my unwillingness to complete things...
Also, what about it is...Permekian?
Permeke = Flemish painter
How about you use your handdrawing as a guideline only? Open it up in PhotoShop or whatever, add a new layer and 'follow the dots' after which you get rid of the handdrawn lines?
Just an idea, mang. It would be neat to see a little more detail in your work.
Yeah, I know...I just get tired of scanning things. The scanner is attached to my other pc, which is all the way across the house. I like being able to just sit down and draw in one spot.
Would I be able to get more detail in if I zoomed or anything? It's a tough thing.
Oh, and alec, I know who Permeke is.
I wikipediad him.
I assume you use a Wacom tablet, but what software do you use next to that? PhotoShop? Paint Shop Pro? Paint?
I dunno which one you're using, but whichever one it is: you're not using that software to its full potential (even if you're using Paint).
Here are a two tips:
Get to know the software you're using. Not everything is done with your Wacom tablet.
Get more detail? Make your canvas bigger, and pick a smaller brush. The usual stuff, really.
I like it how it is,tis different and awesome.
I use teh GIMP.
Yeah, bigger canvas, and then just scale it down...
I think I'll try that. Do you have any idea how much bigger it should be?
And yes, I'm using a Wacom intuos 3.
I followed your advice, in that I did start out with a much larger image (well, 2+x as big). I'm liking this a lot more than the first one.
yes, that is a huge improvement! Good use of colors and you certainly raised the detail level on this one. Next up, shadows?
I should hope so. Unfortunately, I've been reading the latest Harry Potter, and haven't drawn anything yet.
Also, pretty nice art; not my type of art, though, but it's still nice.
I'm worrying myself about how the guy is blowing the smoke out of all the bandages...When I drew it, I just figured he was smoking, but how does he get the cigarette in? Dammit.
Use Photoshop. CS3. Painter IX is also good.
GIMP is free...I don't want to spend 700 dollars on Photoshop if GIMP works practically for everything I've wanted to do with it...Is there that much better with Photoshop?
Photoshop is the standard, but it's indeed very pricey.
If you feel the GIMP offers you everything you need, than stick with the GIMP.
I use Paint Shop Pro 8, which costed only 40 euros or something, and I'm pleased with it. I only need layers and greytones anyway.
Just practice, and you'll do fine in a couple of months.
Soo, it's a house. I sort of tried to juxtapose this PA house against a pretty cheery background, I don't know how successful it was.
i think its not bad at all. u must be patient :A
