3) My third one and last one for a good a while. I'm gonna spend some time practicing and applying some of the suggestions you all have given, but until then I would just like to present what is by far my favorite piece of work.
This piece was actually based off an original sketch I had posted in this forum earlier. This is the original for those interested
2) Here is another painting I just got finished with. You guys have been really helpful giving me some heads up advise and I would love if you could disect this piece as well.
1) So after about a month now of experimenting with photoshop, i scanned one of my old sketches and decided to start work on my first digital painting. I was kinda intimidated at first, but once i got the hang of things it was breeze and hella fun! This is the finished work:
Everything you see there was done by hand using a wacom tablet. After scanning my sketch all I had essentially used it for was a point of reference. Ultimately, I had over 20 layers going on to make sure i get the specific details i wanted, which is my noob way of saying "experimenting w/out screwing it up." I used some layer affects to spice it up, in particular with the flowing lights on his suit. Ultimately I was unsatisfied with his awkward pose, so I did my best to sort of warp into into a more comfortable position.
