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.

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.
