Thumb Lady in the Thumb Lake...

I think I had enough time to sneeze on a file and get a rough idea...
Sorry, but there wasn't much going for me at playtime, but I had a blast looking at a lot of NC Wyeth's stuff!

Arthur, King of the Britons

So... I thought I was going to try using the Artist Oils in Painter. And I couldn't figure them out, and then I didn't care that I couldn't figure them out and just kept going. Maybe we can think of it as a color comp. lol

Btw... that's a Lesser Striped Swallow... native to Africa.

A wee bit late . . . but here 'tis. Definitely a bad omen if you cross paths with the herald of death. I was trying out a few different photoshop brushes over a pencil sketch, and imported some paper texture.

New Topic: King Arthur

Due March 26... post WIPs if ya like.

Nate gets the gold star for finishing Banshee. Go Supahstar Nate!

Glowing Banshee goodness...

Any excuse to use the glow brush is a good excuse no?
Pretty straight forward... Mosty done with the flat oils again in Painter... they've quickly become my favorite brushes, though there's still a bit to master with them. Then there was some refinement in levels, texture and glow touch up in Photoshop.

I actually finished one! This was some more experimenting in Painter. I wanted to try figuring out how to do skin tones from a black and white photo. I used the Artist Chalk brush, and a little bit of airbrushing at the end for some extra gritty texture. Anyway. There 'tis.
