I rather prefer traditional art than digital art, and I don't have photoshop... but the picture you made with this technique looks quite interesting. :)

she seems to be very embittered :O

No, Ill change it eventually, the cool thing about digital art is it will take me 2 mins to change it =)

Wish I could change things that easily in traditional painting.

:nod: that's true. If you don't have to effort much, then it's no problem in my opinion. :)

hm... I think it depends on the method HOW to change mistakes and the material you are using. If you try to correct something with paint, of course you do it very exhausting. I developed some methods how to correct mistakes in a easier way - but this only works if the picture you're working on doesn't require neatness...

:nod: hehe, I figured it on the way you draw human bodies.

well, I'm a very neat drawer (not painter) and I know what it means to do so. :) unless you try some more expressionistic and spontaneous art, which allows you to paint really wild ;)

That helped me alot! :)
Did you ever used the smudge tool at all to blend?
Reply
:icondarkdesyre:
Darkdesyre Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2008
Nope, I think it gives a "plastic" look, I just lower opacity to blend one color over another. I also use spatter brushes or hard brushes in the beginning to give the skin texture, I only switch to soft airbushes near the end.

Jeanine, I love your tutorials, even when I have no intention of using digital drawing. Always learn something though that translates into what I try to do. Curious, do you ever do the digital painting with a live model - I do think that would be interesting scene to paint - a lit model surrounded by half a dozen faces lit up by 'blue' LCD screens. ;-) Barrie

Wow that would be fun to try. I should do that some Sat afternoon at our life drawing open studio. I think Im the only artist there out of 14 though that can digitally paint. The rest dont touch them new fangled contraptions :p

Thanks, I do find that my traditional painting background affects my digital painting in many ways, but the reverse is true too. Id like some day to figure out how to combine the two, but Im not sure what that would look like =)

Yussss!, been waiting for you to upload one of these. Hmmm, I never think to use greens and blues on a relatively shadowless face.
Left eyelid looks perhaps a little heavier than the right? But nature doesn't do symmetry, so your off the hook :p

Actually thats funny you caught that because I fixed it on the actual piece but put the wrong version here in the tutorial. You have very sharp eyes!

I bet, I finally reached the point where I keep having to buy new glasses to paint. It gets hard to draw when you cant see the model =)
