[QUOTE=kepper;35858028]Some practice work. [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/30622781/Otherworld.jpg[/img][/QUOTE] Looking good, though it looks a bit off in terms of perspective where the first structure meets the ground, and those small strokes over the water makes it look kinda weird and underworked, other than that great job on the distance levels and the cast shades. Definitely captured a sense of cold morning. [editline]7th May 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=antianan;35850982]I'm definitely not the one who should advise something, but..just my opinion. May be it would be better to use larger brush strokes?[/QUOTE] No you're right, I caught myself somewhat zoomed in with a smaller brush far too many times, where I should have kept the small brush for metal detailing instead... I like this concept and feel like redoing it entirely.

A set of infographics that I created a few months back for my Graphic Design class at College (And more importantly to get a feel for the style of design because the course i'll be taking at Uni includes this). I know quite a bit of this is poorly composed, with different stroke widths and lots of other shit wrong with it, but it was made in Photoshop because I was too scared to learn illustrator or any other program at that point :( [IMG]http://img831.imageshack.us/img831/7024/outsidew.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/3010/spread1e.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://img98.imageshack.us/img98/7833/spead2.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://img535.imageshack.us/img535/7279/caution2.jpg[/IMG] Inspired by Ikea (lol no shit), I decided to keep it simple although it looked really nice with some red halftone splashes where the lipstick is. The font is Futura md BT although I should have used Verdana which is Ikeas 'new' (2009) typeface, I still think the Futura carries the good old Ikea feel that we can all relate to from our childhood...

i cant figure out what any of those instructions actually mean
the lines are all nice and smooth enough. but you're really going to save yourself a lot of time and energy by learning how to do this in illustrator. especially if you're about to start a course with more of the same sort of stuff. also i don't quite understand the bottom left picture, what is it supposed to represent? [editline]7th May 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Rusty100;35863026]i cant figure out what any of those instructions actually mean[/QUOTE] well, and that, yeah but if you were just going for a visual style then it's not the most important thing
I am having waaay too much fun with this whole pixel art thingy. [IMG]http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2012/128/4/3/jungle_exploration_by_lieutenantawesome-d4yysrb.png[/IMG]
Sort of inspired to give pixel art a go. Especially as my realism stuff is progressing so slowly :/ [IMG]http://niggaupload.com/images/VE87c.jpg[/IMG] WIP. Sorry it's large, was going for the cool lighting effect of the fire but everything went a bit crazy.. not as cool as i hoped (as usual :v:)

I have to agree with Rusty; a lot of symbols, a little less sense.

Anyone want to spare some tips on starting out with speedpainting? Do you use photoshop for your work, or another program entirely? What subjects did you start out with? I'm good enough at drawing freehand, but painting is never something that I've been good at, and photoshop seems a bit more forgiving than messing up an entire canvas.
I use photoshop (and drawing on paper) only for anything I create. And on the subject of speed painting, there are a lot of ways to do it. Really, in the end, do it as you seem fit. In any case, I myself could get an idea and want to sketch it, because that's what I see it as and that's also the most common reason I do it myself: a sketch, a scribble, an idea "written down" hastily made. When you speed paint, you want it to be evenly painted. This means that you don't focus too much on one area of it, but rather spread out the focus of your work and try to go in an even pace in all areas. You start off simple as with any drawing. You want to catch the composition, the forms, and if your time limit allows it go the next step etc. [url]http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php[/url] This site has a handy tool for speed painting humans or animals or what not, I myself use it when I do a speed painting for the purpose of learning, training or warm up rather than "scribbling down an idea". Other than that I'd really just like you to google how to speed paint, because nothing can teach you more than your own effort (and google in this case).

Center of the gradient looks a bit arbitrary.
I got my first tablet the other day and I've been trying to get used to it, this is what I've been toying with so far: [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22851225/zambie2.PNG[/img] What do you guys think?
