Hi, you still around? Hope so. :)

 

So interesting putting texture with your drawings: the Girl and Fluf Creature are really good. I have use textures, but not in the way you have done.

 

I would have never guessed that the bird drawing at Image Shack started out as a line drawing.

 

And I love the yellowy green in your sig. :P

Long hiatus... Yep. Sorry I've took so long to reply.

 

Well... It was a combo of textures and brushing since the older version of PDN made the brush seem like chalk, color pencil or any other textured traditional media. (I still have that version...plus a new one.) Some digital artists use textures, build them up with brushes or use a combination of both to make their works more interesting...or as realistic as possible. My aim with that piece was to see if I could emulate a traditional drawing with a digital program. I'm not sure if I succeeded. And, now that I saw it...I wonder if I should redraw it. :S

I'm curious. How do you use textures?

 

It did. Then, it became values (white, black and shades of gray.) And, finally, coloring. I got crazy using different layer blending modes and plugins (mostly gaussian blur and, possibly, median.) I don't remember how much time I've spent on it, but it was worth it. :]

 

Thanks. :]

 

Note: I don't have it anymore...

Hi! Beta, welcome back.

 

When I posted above I think I had been gone for a while too.

Life gets in the way.

 

Guess what I was trying to say is I like your style.:tard3:

 

I've made a ton of textures, but not really thought of them as "art". I do use them as added interest to some works. 

 

I hope to see more work from you as I find it very interesting.

Thanks. And Happy (late) New Year. :]

 

Yep. I know the feeling. Sometimes, I forget I have an account here. -.-

 

Thanks. I'm a texture maniac. X]

 

Sure. More of them will come. Just that, when I post them, it'll be on the first post of the thread. (I should have thought of that in the first place...)

Thanks. Most of them are either sketches or experiments with the program. :)

And yes, I will. :]

I did two things on YouTube. It's about PDN. It's about sketching. And they're kind of odd. Still trying to get the hang of doing speed-sketching videos. :/

 

Note: It's on the first page. :]

@welshblue Thanks! :] About the fail, it's not the sketches. Sketches don't always look clean and detailed, so I don't worry much about them. :lol: The whole fail issue has to do with both videos. The different programs I use act slow and laggy, or fast and efficient. So, recording sketches becomes tricky. :/ To me, the best way to do it is if:

  • said recordings are fixed on the program window;
  • the colors are limited and ready to use;
  • I try not to rush the sketch, and;
  • I establish a 30-minute limit for the recording.

Plus, I have to edit them so they don't go over 15 minutes. Better keep them short! :lol:

 

Now that you mention pop art, I checked Google Images to compare my sketches and images from said movement. I've been using color and value, making sure the sketches are well shaded and don't end up as a monochromatic or analogous composition. :/ I never thought for a moment that they might look as pop art. Must be the saturated result. :lol: However, that gives me an idea on what their future outcome could be. o.o Also, I looked for art with raw emotion. Man...I might've been incorporating those ideas months or a few years ago. So many faceless people and 'incomplete' semi-abstract sketches... I blame Laovaan (an artist from YouTube) for showing that video about his experience in art school/college. And my time spent doodling silhouettes and abstract stuff with ballpoint pens. D8

Having that pic hanging on your wall might be a problem... I have no idea how to sell my artwork. 8D

And you're welcome. There's more to come! :mrcyan:

(PS.: Watch out, man! :lol: )

 

 

@Pixey Thanks. Like I wrote before, I'm still trying to get the hang of it. :mrcyan: I hope the blonde girl didn't incite any quarrel between them. X]

@Beta0   The 'speedsketching' is very good.  I would never attempt something like that...I applaud you!  :star:  :star:
