On this one i was just ptacticing doing human shapes and something came up, then i outlined with a thinner brush.

I guess i'll follow it
r from here, it will need some extra canvas all around....

I have a ton of unfinished work, but they are always good to go back to every now and again, just to see how I have come along over time.

Good start to a piece here Jorge, you thinking of doing a charcoal maybe?

i started it as a charcoal, because i was just doodling with charcoal, but i'm doing a parallel piece in color
I don't know which way this will go, oil, acrylic or chalk... even watercolor.
I love doing digital as you can change your mind on the go.....

Here's some little advances..........

Will wonders never cease! Jet, I hadn't seen you post in a while. I was sure we burned you out from the May project (you were quite prolific and extraordinary), but here you are... still strokin'!

Looking good... I'll be following!

P.S. this looks like you... hmmm?

I was looking at that too..and i can't believe it really.

If it were a photo manipulation i would understand it, but i was just doodling and made the nose, lips, eyes etc.. from smudging paint around after doing a blurry sketch, and many restarts, here are some of the many combinations i've been doing.

Hello Jet,
My Husband just passed by my computer while I was taking a peak at your work and said "Hmm, Nice! Coming from him that is high praize! :)
I often think artists paint their likenesses into their paintings. My cousin,( who is painter who shows her work in Australia,) is always being accused,( by her family ,) of "painting herself" when she hasn't meant to at all! She gave me a small painting of "A woman" the other day and I think it's a "dead ringer" of her!

Wow Jet, the first thing I thought when I saw this was... it looks like you:)

You are really doing some fine things with your "doodles". I'll be interested to
see how it develops.

Keep those eyes stong, okay? And it the set of two images, I really like the first one best, he looks like a brave there. The second one is a car salesman from Philly, lol!!

I just finished the latest version of this proud Native American....
.. i'm planning to print it on Canvas for an international tribes convention, in which our State -Sinaloa- is being host.
Tribes members from Africa, Australia, Arizona, New Mexico, South and Central America are going to be exchanging cultural rites and customs :clap:

See how it goes..

Jet, this a great! :) There's a strong character to this piece that grabs the eye immediately.

I have a few questions that I guess I could post in a seperate thread but I'll just ask here.

My experience with Photoshop "painting" so far is taking a black and white photo and sampling from the same photo in colour to colourize it. We played aroundd with the opacities, tranparencies and the smudge tool to get the right effect and I'm wondering if that is the basics for painting in Photoshop?

Leslie Ann, Thanks for your time and words...

In PhotoShop, Paint Shop Pro, PhotoPaint and related programs you can 'paint' in many ways.
1.- Painting in the way you have described, is called Photomanipulation, as you're pushing pixels around.
2.-Painting brushstrokes can be simulated by the use of multiple filters and/or plugins.
3.- Actual 'painting' from scratch, painting over a sketch or directly applying painting on 'canvas' with trhe use of multiple 'brushes' and painting tools for retouching or finishing your initial strokes.

here i didn't use any sketching -mainly because i don't draw very well-, i just place paint 'spots' where main features go and work around smudging and smearing paint with different brushes.
I use different modes when applying paint in several layers, for added depth and control.

*-Also , there's Painter the program that was born 'painter' and its primary use is for emulating traditional painting.

If you have any questions or need help , don't hesitate in calling-
-Never too busy for helping-
