Bird Study

Today I'm posting up another study but this time you get a process piece. This means you get to see an animation of the painting as it evolves from Sketch to finished piece. The original idea was for me to follow the step by step process on page 69 of "Practical Guide to Painting" by Vicenc B. Ballestar and Jordi Vigue. Well i got to about step 3 and decided to go off on my own tangent. However, once completed, I did adjust the levels to get that saturated gouache look that they were going for. All in all it was a fun exercise and I may do more in the future.

Cintiq Studies

Hey All,

Finally, I buckled down and got myself a decent tablet. Prior to this I was using a Wacom Graphire 3 which has about as much pen sensitivity as a 2x4"! So far so good but it is taking some time to get the hang of it all. Today I'm posting some studies I did,mostly using the Charcoal Brush in Painter. I have not had any success in PS getting a nice feeling for drawing but I suspect that if i tinker some more and fiddle a bit with the brushes, I'll work it out.

Here we go.
