    Made one of my buds a Street Fighter themed birthday card. I spent way too much time on it for only one person to see it.

    Nobody saw my botp'ness...I bet I just got botp'd again...

    Worstcase, I lost my phone for 2 months. I did not talk to anyone during that time, nor did anyone try to contact me. It was a boring time, but strangely relaxing.

    Radar, those are some great sketches, lotsa energy.

    Nice one too Ed.

    aw man i've edited this post like 4 times now:

    I had to paint over to demonstrate. Took me about 15 mins, apologies if this oversteps. I just think you could push the lighting/narrative and perspective, this is kind of what i meant in the description above.
    wckpaint.jpg

    edit:
    Also you should know this isn't 3-point perspective, it's almost entirely 1 point perspective, except for your big door which is trying to demonstrate its massiveness by pulling toward a second perspective point. It doesn't really work though, because all your other figures aren't being drawn toward the same point. So, really, it sort of just looks like a weirdly shaped door. I didn't want to change that, but it might be worth considering which direction you're going to go in.

    Vertical perspective points aren't often use in scenes where the focus is on the horizon, because in every day life we'd only really notice that kind of thing if we were looking up. It's hard to look up AND at the horizon at the same time. So most of your vertical lines would be straight up and down.

    ALSO wanted to say that some of the lines you make when you're trying to do perspective stuff sometimes feel VERY counter-intuitive. Like the upmost lines of those rafter things I added are at a very oblique angle which felt really unnatural to draw. I get this crawling feeling sometimes when I do this stuff because it FEELS wrong. Try experimenting with more extreme lines and see what happens.

    Actually, here's with the straight door. I don't think it's an improvement, i like the original shape, but it makes more visual sense. Maybe try your door shape, but without fucking around with that second perspective point.

    THANKS A BUNDLE DUDE!!!!!!!!!!! HELPS SOOOOOooooo Much.
    *btw originally it was a simple 1point rotated on its side, but the Tafe group im doing this for wanted it to show more scale, so they wanted it to be 3 point perspective on the door. Its hard to balance, 'what they want', 'what looks correct', and also 'what my skills are capable of atm'. But your paintover looks more spot on than mine. Im liking the second image door. Maybe mine gets too narrow too fast...? Ill ef around with it some more. CHeers dude!

    Yeah, I forgot to mention I had a ref, though I did say it the first time I posted the WIP. It's a stock image ref I got the pose and most of the lighting from. Modified the face and some of the color as well as a few other things, but I need that ref. There's no way this stuff could come from the top of my head.

    Wakka do you have a girlfriend? If not, it's probably because all the women you paint are so fucking gorgeous they feel inadequate.

    Wakkawa draws boobies so well he knows any workplace would recognize even those well-sized knockers as 'art'.

    Seriously though, looking awfully nice there. The only thing I have to critique is that the belly button on that first woman looks super high. I know that sometimes that's a technique used to attract attention to the sexiness of ladybits, because it makes the pelvis look longer, but I'd still put it down a little. It's like, right below her ribcage and that's kind of creepy when you really consider it.

    Otherwise, lovely. Digging the phoenix red catching her skin in a few places. Would love to see a little more there on her right side.

    Too many good illustrations have been posted in this thread. Shame on you all! Time to justify the title of this thread by posting some crappy sketches.

    These are sketches on characters im developing. You guys have probably noticed ive drawn a lot of dudes with long mullets and bald/receding hairlines. Im developinign characters for some short stories ive written which, over the summer holidays (december-march) im going to try and do a shitty animation which i will enter into a few comps and shows online. Not hoping to win, but just for fun. To kinda expand my creativity. But anyway. doodles

    Wakka: You've got the hot bitches market cornered.

    AoB: Very nice sketch, but you need to work on your pose balance.

    ND: TOOT TOOT

    Charise: how can you color balance working on one part at a time like that?

    What's that thing that makes your wacom paint better?

    Since she and I live together and work with the same types of techniques, I hope I can answer for her. Color balancing working on one piece at a time isn't difficult when you understand the pallete and color scheme you're using. She's using greens, blues reds, and oranges in the skin, and as long as she sticks with the basic theory of "red and green" or "blue and orange", it'll give the piece a consistant feel. That color scheme, for example, would be "split complimentary" or a variant of it.

    She's also using a reference, and taking any color she sees and exxagerating it slightly. So that keeps things consistant as well.

    As for painting better, she and I both use the wet loaded watercolor flat tip brush in photoshop, edited to change opacity and size based on pen pressure, and then gradient a large number of colors and hues together for soft light. And, of course, use hard, contrasting edges for hard light. Basically, following the principals of classical painting techniques, but digitally.

    Hope that helps.

    It seems counter-intuitive to focus on single body parts before getting the general color, value, and composition down. Also painting on a solid white background messes with your sense of value because each time you're filling up a limb that decreases the brightness of your canvas.

    Also I meant wasn't there a driver or something that people have been plugging into photoshop that adjusts the pressure sensitivity of your tablet?

    That's true, but then you just make changes to it later if it does present a problem. Sometimes I work on solid white, and sometimes I work on a 50% gray BG.

    As for drivers, the pressure sensitivity comes with the standard wacom drivers, and usually you can go into control panel change those settings if you're using a windows PC. Charis and I are at work right, now, and she just doesn't have internet so she'll probably respond later to suppliment what I said.

    Desperaterobots: That's so sick. I'd buy it.

    No I mean there was something people were installing a while back that let's you adjust the pressure sensitivity curve on a wacom. I know how to set stuff in the driver and all that photoshop stuff. That was a question unrelated to the painting.
