This is one of my first attempts in digital art... It was an old drawing i had done. I scanned it in today and colored it with photoshop. I would appriciate any tips on how to make the figure blend in better with the background, or any other tips, for that matter. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif
Thanks!

Fitting digital and scanned art together is a problem near and dear to my heart. I think you might have a question of styles here, so that the front seems not to "belong" with the back. The challenge (which I have yet to master) is how to incorporate a human derived figure or image with a computer generated one so the viewer can't spot the difference.

BTW, I liked your Loth gallery. I'm supposed to say that because I'm a <a href='http://elfwood.lysator.liu.se/zone/d/h/dhenton/dhenton.html'>Zone47</a> person myself.

Do you have any plans for art school/study? You've certainly got the interest!!

The one thing that I might have to offer in the way of advice is really pay attention to your light source and pull some of your "light" colors into your figure. Like the back of her head and in the cape, etc.

I really like your colors on her. Very nice http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Since you're using Photoshop, my suggestion would be to experiment with the layers. Try different layer options like multiply or soft light. Select different parts of your work and apply various layer or filter effects. And, don't forget that you can control the opacity of each individual layer, which gives you a great deal of control over blending images.

Thanks for all your replies. Yes, layer options... since i have just stared out with this kind of thing i don't yet know all the things i can do... Infact, i figured out the opacity layer option on the picture that i colored just after this one. Silly huh. Anwyay, thanks for all your input and advice. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
