Topic: BalanceArt

Now that I'm finally on fast internet... big_smile  I'll be practicing PhotoShop now and then, and thought I'd post the finished ones in a thread...seeing as most of them have something to do with Star Wars anyway.  I might actually do a Mandalorian next...depends on how busy I am, but anyways, here's a very rough, small sketch of my character from the Stolen Bride RPG...

Feel free to comment, especially if you could offer some Photoshop tips...I draw way too fast, so I do most of the polishing up on the computer.

Re: BalanceArt

That looks cool smile

I dont know what reference you use to begin with so I have no advice to give you on that.... Just, with Photoshop if you want to improve, visit www.pixel2life.com I always have it open whenever I'm working on something.

Re: BalanceArt

Absolutely no reference at all. Kinda taught myself, which is obvious...I know jack-squat about layers and all that.   
Which is why tips would be great, but I'll definetely check out that link.  smile
...off to work on another piece....

Re: BalanceArt

All right...GAAAGH, I'm so lazy...it'd look a lot better if I went over it with a pen or something...grrr....
Here's a quickie Mandalorian.  Bleh.

Re: BalanceArt

Thanks smile...If only I knew how to...
Daenna, I don't know if you'll read this, but I was wondering how you trace the sketches with pen...how you do it anyway, because the penciling looks horrible in PhotoShop.  sad

Re: BalanceArt

I'm getting closer...anyway, some concept of Tussok from the Stolen Bride RPG.  Because I love concept art, that's why.

Re: BalanceArt

You have a nice style of art. I like the grudgy style of the outlines of the pics. My favorite is the first of your RPG charecter.

Re: BalanceArt

Those are great. I am a pretty good artist (drawing, not painting), but only drawing characters. I cannot draw vehicles, or animals, etc. Anyways, those are awesome.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: BalanceArt

Re: BalanceArt

Thanks everyone. smile 
Next...either another Mandalorian, another Stolen Bride RPG character, or some random merc.  Don't know when I'll have time for it, though.

You could, but then I'm tempted to say, with an Arnold Schwartzenegger voice: "YOU LACK DISCIPLINE" but yes, who knows with a lot of money you could take digi-art classes like normal people.... But I'm naturally strong in the photoshop-Force wink

Re: BalanceArt

Yeah...I certianly hope I can get some good experience here in college, but...I don't know if that's going to happen.  sad
Anyways, here's something I slapped together for the Stolen Bride RPG.
