Hey there,

I found this site not long ago, and I've enjoyed the articles here. So now I thought it was about time to join the forums as well.

Here's a couple of my latest exercises:


a lighting exercise:

And another lighting exercise (15 minute exercise):

Yup, I'll post more soon.

BTW! I should probably have tagged the butticon since there's actually breasts included in the first pic.. Sorry about that..

Pretty cool, I love two source lighting. Just guessing, but you didn't happen to base the lighting schemes on Poser images by any chance?

Please tell us a bit about how these were done. They look great.

Hey, thanks for the reply. I dont even have/use poser, so that would be kind of hard for me to do. In fact there was no reference at all for these images. I wouldn't even post these pictures if I didn't feel they were totally mine. I dont have anything against reference, but a direct copy of something you see from a photo as anything else than training, I feel is not related to art.

But other than that, I'm taking it as a compliment that you suggest such a thing. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif


btw, I use photoshop and a Wacom. My favourite software and hardware. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Your process description describes the "original sketch". Do you first sketch something on paper, scan it, and then begin your digital manipulations?
Curious as to your methods.

No, these two I sketched in photoshop using my Wacom drawingboard. I'm so used to the board now that it feels pretty similar to regular pencilsketching. So I basically do a loose sketch, then I outline what I'm satisfied with and the rest is just coloring. And ofcourse, the undo button really helps. hehe..

Very cool. Really like the lighting on the female figure. Gives it a very three dimensional feel.

Oh yeah, I split up the layers so you could see the way I put it together.

These two are done using paintbrush, airbrush and smudgetool in photoshop. First I did the outline of both of these with minimal lighting. Then I started shading. First the keylight, then the more ambient looking light on a different layer. I use paintbrush mostly with an opacitysetting of 20%. That's the way I sketch in most my stuff. The dodgetool is used to get the highlights in the guys hair (and jawbone.)

Hope that helps. Anything else I can point out, feel free to ask.
