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.

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.

Livestream [OFFLINE]


Sorry for the lack of Vlog‘s. I’ve finally purchased my new pc and I had to transfer everything so I had to re-register EVERYTHING! Sadly no photoshop elements 7 because I don’t have an optical drive >_> So here is how this post works. While I am online, the post will say online in brackets, give me about 2mins to stream, sometimes you may need to refresh. If it says Offline in the title, then I’ve ended the stream. Click Chat to talk to me while I stream though I am super slow to reply since I spend more time drawing that chatting.

Vlog: Gift Art


Here’s the new Vlog of the recent gift art I made. The final view isn’t the finished version but merely the next stage. I will hopefully post that progress when I get some more of it done later on in the week. Lately I’ve been drawing many different artworks all at the same time which is a good thing. The reason being is because it keeps them all fresh and stops me from over focusing and getting frustrated or worse yet, art block. My other gift art which is the one I had planned to post, the videos did not record sadly. I did most of it through livestream.com and because of my internet connection it did not record all of my work. Of course I am pretty annoyed but it’s over with now so hey, what can you do?

Some of you may be wondering why I am posting so many works in the concept stage instead of the more complete stage and there are two reasons for that. One is that it takes often up to 30+hrs. Lately I’ve been learning quicker ways to draw in order to cut the time down. The second reason is that it’s very hard to edit those long videos with windows live media player. It often crashes while editing and even while saving. Though I do have a sneaking suspicion that it’s the laptop that I am currently working from that is causing all these issues. None the less, I will keep trying to bring you more videos and ones where I complete them all the way, no matter how many hours it takes to make it! I haven’t even edited out my mistakes in this Vlog either, it’s all completely raw video that’s been speed up like the rest of them.

If you have a suggestion or request then leave it in a comment below and I’ll do my best to get it done and feature it in my next post ^__^ It doesn’t have to be anime/manga, but I am not comfortable drawing mecha or certain types of furry/anthro art. Ask anyway and I will at least attempt it and give you the artwork at the end, signed and all.

Firstly, sorry for no posts recently. I had a 21st party to both organise and go to. It was a lot of fun, met a lot of people.

So for the next update, I will be posting a Vlog of me speedpainting a gift art, from start to hopefully finish. Some parts may be missing because half was done on live stream and the other was done on camstudio. If you are interested in viewing my livestream then click HERE. I usually post a link via twitter when I go on livestream, so if you would like to get those updates then you can Follow Me on Twitter. My Twitter link and updates are always available on the right side of my blog so if you ever loose the link, you can always catch it here as well take a sneak peek of what’s going on lately 😉

The programs I will be using will be a mix between, opencanvas, easy paint tool sai if it’s not lagging and mostly photoshop elements 7. I don’t have CS even though it’s the one I really want, I simply can’t afford it. But maybe one day or if I get enough art commissions I will spoil myself and buy it. Though that is looking to be very unlikely. Mostly because bills come first >_> Also, as always I will be working from my bamboo fun pen and touch tablet.
