Very nice painting! Really like the colours and the wood plate. And the drapery is excellent. Is it Photoshop or your secret weapon Artrage - or maybe both?

(I really find it hard to work in another programme than Photoshop. Tried out painter, but couldn't get into it. Maybe I'm getting old ...)

This is solely photoshop. Artrage is very limiting and you have to be persistant, whether the persistance is worth it of course is down to the individual.

I had a crack with painter 10 recently and It's not so daunting once you get into it...the important thing, like anything new, is to digest in portions, and don't be put off by its endless lists of brush attributes.

Take one brush from 'artists'list (top right), like 'Sargent Brush,' and get used to the way oils work and feel.... play around with the sliders that change the brush propeties until you under stand how the terminology in painter works and to what effect. One thing at a time, and the rest will fall into place alot easier than you first thought... :)

I know what you mean- I have the same thing with Maya. It really isn't that daunting, still eh.. still.

Wow, man. The posts just keep gettin' better. The dynamics on the figures is great as well as the textures you acheived. I specially like the skin on the man. The contrast of his nails, the tone, the shine,it all captures the ethinicity and life of the character awesomelly.

Wow, I haven't visited here in som time. I love the tanks! They look gritty, while the picture still has a smooth look to it. I would definitely see an animated flick about Hell's kitchen with your style (Scorcese could direct), I think big ladies with little guns are awesome, and the snake charmer was done to perfection. That was all the further I could go back with the time I had. Helluva good job, though.

You have a lot of amazing work here.
