First Day on the Job – Dragon Keeper

Another test painting. Should have used some reference. Everything just looks too plain. I would have done some saliva dripping but this was not going the way I wanted it to. My little trip into the world of digital painting is not going so good. This adventure may have concluded for the time being.

Quick Gorilla Test

A quick test painting in photoshop. It looked better before I tried some custom brushes and some quick colors.

I liked how the rendering was going in grayscale and then tried to apply colors using some soft and hard light layers in photoshop. Hated it. I seen it being done by Peter Mohrbacher in the below video:

He is an awesome artist but the adjustment layers to apply colors just didn’t work for me. I’ve been doing the caricatures lately with a base color and then staying close to that color in the color wheel. The colors end up harmonizing. That is what has worked for me so far.

Superman Wears Packers Underwear

Tried to do a more traditional painterly style and failed epicly. I called it quits at this point before frustration took over. Maybe I will try something a little easier before getting into a large scene with multiple light sources.

This is from a picture of one of my wife’s facebook friends. No picture since I didn’t ask for permission.¬†Probably going to lay off the caricatures for a bit.
