View Full Version : Pixel Richard Gere

06-23-2004, 06:19 PM
I've always admired Richard Gere, so of course I've had some pictures sitting in my reference folder. This was done on an oekaki (online mspaint, you could say) and completed in about an hour.

An Oekaki!? - I had one of those, but the wheels fell off! Luckily, no-one was hurt....

But this is very good - the monochromatic effect is refreshing. Is it done by hand, or some kind of image manipulation?

nice job! I don't think you can do any sort of photomanip on those boards, they are online, and there are no photomanip features available, you start with a blank slate and sketch...and I find them difficult, but I am slow!

Not a photo manip at all. I actually made it on an animated PaintBBS board, so you can see it from beginning to end if you'd like (java required).


EDIT: I also wanted to comment that the blue monochrome is actually usually the outline/base for the watercolor in my oekakis, but I liked the sketch too much to cover it ^^; You can see the usual process with my Johnny Depp (http://mezicolorism.net/oekaki/index.php?artist=feit&sortartist2=Go#130) drawing/painting/oekaki

wow, that is great!

do you work in that program because you like it or because it's all that's available to you? i only ask because i think you could do some serious damage with painter! :)

i'd really like to see more of your stuff. thanks for posting this.

The oekaki board is hosted on my website, and I like it for the watercolor as much as the easy access, though I use openCanvas just as much. It's been a while since I've done any digital work (Johnny Depp was my last before this). Lately I've been doing more graphite work, but it's always nice to pick up my graphire now and then.

EDIT: I printed this out in B&W, and I think it might show some of the detail better than the blue.
