My first "black'n white" ... Crits and comments are welcome. It's done in PS5.5 (the only one) and with a 12x12 Wacom.

Argh, matey! 'Tis a fine representation of a block print, doncha' know?
Nice job, Del. What was your inspiration for this rendering?
Also, "PS 5.5 (the only one)"? Care to elaborate? http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Hey nick, thanks for the feedback. I didn't have much inspiration on this one. Started with a face I wanted to look mean. Eventually I thought it resembled a pirate, so I added a hook and a headpiece.

What I meant by PS5.5 is the only one, is that I'm not very fond of 6.0 because they made it too web oriented. They could have put all that web crap in Imageready, and focus on making the photo/paint part more usable. And they even changed some of the tools, like dodge. So all in all, I hope they do something creative with PS7 whenever that comes out.

Oh, and I liked the 12x12 at work so much I've just ordered a 12x18 at home. Call that overkill. hehe..

Uhm, forgot to update this some days ago. Well, I refined the pirate somewhat. Getting some feedback really helps.

Arg, being overloaded with work doesnt leave much room for practice and fun (drawing, that is.)

Now that we're back online I'm pulling some posts to the top. Let's try to get some of these conversations rolling again...

This looks good, very stark and sharp, scary, ominous. You just did this with the Wacom, no posterizing filters or anything?

Just goes to show that somebody who knows how to draw can succeed in practically any medium.

Thanks for posting the revised version, but, I suggest in the future you limit your images to a smaller width -- some people with smaller display screens won't be able to read this thread easily, with this image so large.

Thank you, pixelscapes. Yes, the picture was made with just the paintbrush in PS, because I really dont like applying filters to anything.

Sorry about the size. I'm somewhat spoiled at work with my dual 22" monitors, so it's not hard to spot mistakes like that all the time. I can see your point here at home though. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif
