Z:-new pictures, latest added 5/22/2010, on page 8

Line art. I would duplicate that line layer, and with the bottom one blur about 2 or 3 px. Then erase on the side that's in the light - so it gives it some depth. I can throw up some pics if you want to see what I mean.

I liked it before the change. I like Nab's idea and intend to try it out on some stuff but your image seemed to lose something to me and didn't fix the whole problem. The lighting or color seems different, maybe it made it a little darker. I would think that you put countless hours in on a piece like this and what are a few more hours. If you really want to get rid of the line drawing look, which for itself is a nice look, I would use the smudge tool. It would take painstaking hours of work but the piece is worth it. And that is the most I have ever had to say about anything. I just like it so much. It is a great piece as it is but it could be all that. It is like a glimmer of hope in a dark cold world.

haHA! I solved the problem of having my computer deal with a large canvas by cutting out the part I wanted to smudge.

Without further ado, here it is.

I also did not delete the previous version, so comparisons can be made.

Thank you very much! :mrgreen:

It is like a glimmer of hope in a dark, cold world.

... profound, but so true.

I liked the 1st version better, but either one is a testament to your pdn skills.

Nice work :D

Thank you! :mrgreen:

Belated thanks, HELEN, survulus, Cola, Gamer_World14, and Jokes On You.

During my absence, I have created a few new things, most notably these two pieces:

cosmicthumb.png

Sketched with pencil. Scanned in, inked and colored with PDN. The stars in the cape are from a Hubble deep space photograph.

jestercolorthumb.png

Sketched with pencil, scanned in with lineart done in Adobe Illustrator CS. The color is PDN.

If I finish the current object of my attention tonight, I will edit the post to show it, as well.

I finally finished this, after more than 30 hours of work, and I suspect, more than 35 hours.

It's certainly on the the largest pieces I've ever done, if not the largest (photobucket decreased the size back down to 1 MB, methinks) and it's taken one of the longest times to do a picture I've ever taken.

However, I would like to make this picture be the best it can be, so I'd appreciate anyone who'd enjoy nitpicking at the smallest details, like the angle of the shadows cast by the houses, the shading on the domes at the top of the village, point out if the water streams look funny at all, etc.

Here it is:

drawn in pdn??? still, EPIC. i like your work ;)

Thanks!

I drew it in pencil, and inked the majority of it with a variety of felt tip pens that were a recent purchase. Then I scanned it in and colored it only in PDN.

Interesting new piece, I will try to make something of the sort in PdN when I get my Wacom Bamboo Pen + Touch in a week or so for my birthday. I must say that you have drawn some beautiful things with sensational color schemes.
