Speed Paintings and Timelapses


 

This is what I have currently been up to lately. I’ve been reviving a webcomic, catching up on old webcomics and still studying and practising 2D animation. Mostly I’m taking some time off learning to paint and do webcomics. Software used was Clip Paint Studio EX. In all 3 videos.

Zbrush Daily Sculpt Challenge: Can I do It?


I probably can’t but I’m about to try! First up, Darius. I’m going to post how far I got in zbrush and then what I painted over in photoshop. Incase you’re wondering he’s a Vampire from one of my stories.

So below will take you to the full image of the painted over version plus the WIP renders of how far I’ve gotten. I do apologise if it’s too dark for some.

Photoshop Tip: Pencil Tool


This is just a random thing I thought to mention. Pencil tool isn’t really for sketching. It’s set to basic brushes for a reason. It’s more for making lines. If you hold shift while dragging up or down you get a perfect line but it you click then click a point in another direction all while holding down shift you get a diagonal line. If you do this with the pressure brushes even with a mouse you WON’T get a diagonal line, at least not one that’s very visible. I use to think that feature was excluded from photoshop elements until I actually found the pencil tool.

I watch some youtube videos on drawing now and then and a lot of people seem to use the line shape instead of simple click+shift+drag or shift+click+click with the pencil tool. The disadvantage with the shape tool is rasterizing and merging all of those lines and cutting and pasting. If you go to window>> guide you can then see a ruler along the top and left side. Combine that with using shift instead and you can measure out your lines like you would with a real pen and ruler.

This method also works with GIMP and a few other digital art programs.

Selling Photoshop Brushes


Just thought to mention here that I’m selling some photoshop brushes. All of them are good quality. Made in photoshop CS5. Should work in older versions to at least CS3. Not sure about any older versions though. Should work in photoshop elements. It has for mine. I use them and made them myself . All the brushes are previewed to the left. Most of which I used on the image to the right. So basically this is my personal painting set with a few extras.

The oily looking brushes do excellent blending when used with the smudge tool. It often gives a watered down effect. Suitable for realism and anime art. Suitable for making watercolour style art in photoshop.

These brushes are NOT for re-sale. If you purchase these brushes you may use them in commerical works. These brushes are intended for photoshop users looking for a paint-like effect.

Installation- These instructions work for most brushes:

Open photoshop. Select brush tool. Right click page. This will open up the brush selection menu. The more options tab, click and select Load Brushes. Navigate to where you downloaded/saved the ABR file. You will then see it added onto your current brushes.
