Re: Portrait Gallery -- July/ August 2011

nice work, everybody

thanks all! Sure I stay here and post some new works. I will not run or hide away

Kevin, it is photoshop + ramon brushes + own made custom ones which are very simple.

sometimes i test Artrage as you see below. I'd love try Corel Painter some day since it supports rotation of wacom Art pen. I really love PS since it is so straightforward and it requires different thinking than oil/artrage. Both complete each other.

Isnt funny that I use digital to emulate oil?

Tomasis, your Sargent girl looks more like pastel to me, but this last one certainly looks like oil! Both are terrific; I would be totally lost trying to do digital art!

Re: Portrait Gallery -- July/ August 2011

nancy, thanks, I agree about Sargent, im never gonna be good on brushes of Photoshop that makes oil painting look real. But I forgot one thing that one can make a scan of any random oil painting and add texture in blending mode.

I experimented a bit. I took a piece of scanning of my forehead (unfinished selfportrait painting) and tried bring out texture and smoothness of layer. I got tip from Craig Mullins :P

Re: Portrait Gallery -- July/ August 2011

This is an update of one I started months ago. It's my 16 year old daughter, and my first portrait attempt. i had to get it done b/c my younger daughter is wondering why I haven't started "her" yet!! I guess it's encouraging that she still wants me to paint her after seeing how her sister's turned out. C/C welcome! sorry for the glare. It's in oils 9x11.

Re: Portrait Gallery -- July/ August 2011

harry and sandra, thanks!

Sandra, do you mean you want digital tutorial on how to use digital? For general I think it is pretty much same with oil on particular program as Artrage, Painter but layer dries quickly as 0,1 sec there . But it might be other things I can talk about how to make full use of digital media. Im afraid I made some bad habits of using digital since it is so flexible, comfortable, forgiving so I usually put way too loose strokes in beginning, make palette on the image then slowly I tighten up all things. In oil you have to do right already from beginning and plan carefully.

I think I can do a wip of something, write mostly tips how to make use of digital at easy way.


usually I spend max 1-2 hours per piece (this below is exception, way overdone i guess i wanted to get drawing right), thats relatively fast compared to oil, also digital is demanding as you can do "too much"

Re: Portrait Gallery -- July/ August 2011

Yes Tomas, I just meant it would be nice to share your work in the main forum I think lots of artist would benefit from it working in either the real stuff of digital , its all learning isnt it ... I have always dug digital , but I just never get my wacom tablet out ...but your work is quite inspiring for sure

the above head study is very cool , is that a Sargent head Im not sure I thought I knew all his heads ?...

Tomasis that's really great. Do you adjust a reference photo or finger paint on your computer like David Kassan on YouTube?

Re: Portrait Gallery -- July/ August 2011

Hi I'm a new member, I love painting portraits and figures. Here's my latest, from an old photo of my daughter (she's now 17 so a bit bigger than in this pic). I called it "Tiny Dancer". It's 12 x 14 inches, acrylic on canvas board. I'm very happy with the way it turned out.

Thanks for the opportunity to post - I love looking at everyone's work, you're all amazingly talented and skilful.
