View Full Version : A sci-fi doodle

02-18-2001, 02:11 PM
Trying to work out a few things for an upcoming project. First done as a pencil sketch in ol' Academie sketch pad. Re-drawn in Painter. Finished in Painter and Photoshop. Playing with textures, lighting and shadows. Also, playing with filters.

I don't usually use filters in my "fine art" (for lack of a better term) digital work, preferring instead to use as much of traditional painting and drawing techniques as possible. However, for my comic and cartoon work, I like to work with filters. I liken them to the special effects used in the movies. As long as I can use the filter as an enhancement (versus a crutch) and it helps to advance the story, I'll use it.

I'd like to hear your opinions (on the piece and using filters).

Did this ever come together for you Digi? I have a bad memory.

I like how you've done the back view.

I like the work you have done here digi.
The sculpting of the body with the highlights looks great.
(I have no idea what filters are :D )
