I say although it is quite sketchy, the atmosphere covers it up with a most awesome effect! The water, now that ain't so sketchy and it looks very elegant! I dig this and I enjoy the reference of the landscape's massive area with the use of the silhouetted people. Though not too detailed, it all fits so nicely I could see myself leaping from one of those nice waterfalls to my death. lol
Wow, this is just gorgeous! I absolutely love the scale you convey with all of these environments. They all seem awesomely huge, and trying to find that one figure you seem to always sneak in is like a fun little bonus easter egg hunt hehe.
You always choose such pleasant palettes, as well. Very nice work
No problem. You're an amazing background graphic painter, and I hope to be just as good, but only at my animating. ^FT^ I'll prove that NJ kids can animate too. And I really want to see you continue your paintings! lol :3
Yeah it has been a while hasn't it. I'm good, still busy just painting and drawing away trying to get better. Hopefully one day I'll get there. Hope your well and keep posting your stuff. Its always an inspiration to work harder when I see something new from you.
i would just try to work with a pallet. If you really wanna learn you gotta paint traditionally. It's the only way.
When you paint traditionally you have to think about your color pallet before you even begin. A lot of times you cant afford all the colors so you have mix colors which naturally cause a color harmony or aka color balance in photoshop . So when paint traditionally from life you are forced to really think about the colors you are choosing because you can't go back once you lay it down.
With photoshop and painter you have unlimited colors so you tend to not think as much because you can always undo , so you naturally tend to get lazy when choosing colors. This is just my observation of course. Some artist that inspire my color are Jackson Sze Nathan Fowkes and Goro Fujita. You'll notice they are bomb traditionally artists so their digital work is even better.
Easy way study someone's color is to grab a photo or image you like > Bring into photoshop> Make sure the layers are flattened >
Go to Image>Mode>Index Color . A dialouge box should come up with some settings , just leave them they way they are. and Hit Ok
Then go back to Image>Mode>Color Table . If you did it right a Color table/Color Swatches should appear and it Should be showing you all the colors in the photo/painting that you brought into photoshop. you should be able to save that into a Color Pallet.
From there just go to your swatches click on the little arrow and go to>replace swatches. Just make sure when you search for it that the bottom dialouge box is set to color table so that your computer can find the file. Otherwise it won't show up when you search for it.
Hope that helps. This is a quick cheap way to get color pallets but again if you don't know how to use colors it won't matter : )
thank you very very much! i get what u mean with working traditionally, we did that in college but its just for a few months. I didnt continue to study traditionally myself because i cant afford the paints and the papers, which sounds like a reallly bad excuse
let me try to apply the traditional principles digitally, to think of the palet first before i start to paint. I appreciate ur tips and tricks! I noe the boundary, so i get ur words.
and btw, thank you so much for the names! I've heard about Goro Fujita, but today I get to introduced to another master thanks to you! Do submit more works, because ur works inspire me as well!
HELLO NO , IT STAYS UNDER CHARACTERS!!! FOREVER!!!! MUAHAHA . aww damn thats my bad lolol i always forget to click on that tab to specify where it goes lolol , but yeah throw it in environment or w/e you wanna put it thanks again for catchin that lol i would have never noticed!!
