View Full Version : Texas Sheriff

10-20-2002, 07:51 PM
I can't sleep so I thought I'd post one of my digitals.

Name: Texas Sheriff
Size and resolution (original): 2100x3300 pixels 300 pixels/inch
Medium: PS 5.0 LE, Lineart: Staedler pigment liner
Printed on: HP high quality photo paper
Comment: This was an entry for an art contest on the theme "smoke". The denim texture comes from my own pair of Levi's :) I didn't draw the indians - they are pictures. :p Unfurtunately I rushed this piece for the deadline - so some detail isn't as good as it could have been (not to mention her anatomy *shrugs*... ).

The japanese script in the corner say "pipe of peace - smoke of peace" - allthough a lot of it is covered by her arm.

Feel free to comment/critizice/chat/whatever

see a bigger version here (1200x1886 pixels) (http://hem.bredband.net/matsam/stuff/Texas1200px.JPG) (on this version you can see the textures much clearer and it's not cropped like the one below)

I always get a kick out of anime!

My one comment would be that the shadows of her fingers on her face are off because of the position of her hand by the hat...just a small perspective matter.

Other than that, it's key-uuuute!

:p Nice work Captan!
I agree with Madster about the hand shadow on her face. But! Still a good image!....and Oh! did you win anything in the contest?
jana:D ;)

Great work! I love anime and you do it so very well. I'm with everyone else on the hand shadow, but that's a minor bump. The overall artistic application is excellent!;)

Ummm... I didn't come in first place - that's all I know. Hehe.. You are all commenting the shadow thing - there's lot's of other stuff that's worse even...

But thanx anyway for the compliments!

really, really nicely done! i love the detail colouring in her clothes and her hair! :clap: is that a photograph in teh backround?

10-22-2002, 06:57 PM
Thanks, and yes, the backround comes from two separate photos of indians - the smoke fx was drawn on top of it all. I would have drawn the indians in photoshop using those images as refs, but there simply was no time... :(

I like it!!! I haven't done any texture fill stuff in quite a while. Now this one has got me itchin' do one!

LOL as a native Texan I never saw a sheriff or deputy that looks this good, but I bet you could send it out as a pin up for some of the smaller departments in rural Texas :D

@ digistyle: Hehe.. good luck with the textures then. And thanx for the compliments.

@ sassybird: I'd love to see my work pinned up right next to a nudy calender at a sheriffs department. LOL! Or maybe at a gas station in the middle of nowhere... :)

Wow, I never browse the digital art forum, but I might have to start doing so! This is really neat, captan. I know absolutely nothing about digital art, so seeing what people manage to create on their computers just blows me away. :)

very cute, very nice. I'd blur shadows a bit, apart from that - liked it very much:clap:
