I haven't made a diptych in a while..

Here is 21 on a journey into the heart of the forest. I like drawing her.

I've admired this piece for the longest of times. (:

Do you mind if I ask a few questions?

When you are just beginning, do you draw a sketch or do you do that amazing no-line painting like technique?
What do you use to blend colors?
I have PSE atm but I got PSCS5 extended for Christmas and I need the 'proof of student' thing to make it work. But, what kind of brushes do you use and how can I give it a soft look?
How do you do BG's?! Dx
Why am I so noobish? (lolplzdontanswerthat)
Did you take art lessons? If not, you are so amazing that I'll be disgusted by your work Dx :'D kiddingggg
Am I annoying you with my redundant questions?

Do you want to know the method I used for this piece specifically? Or do you want to know how I work now? My technique has changed a bit since then :)

It's really appreciated when I can get some answers finally. Haha.

You wouldn't know how to cell shade by chance, would you?

You can almost smell the musky coat (and see the deer ticks, haha)! Amazing capture of movement, color, and beauty.

The light in this piece is the most strikingly beautiful I've seen in a while. At least not in this way. You have captured the grace of these animals perfectly. Well done!

I love how you did the shafts of sunlight and the dappling it makes on her coat, very nice, you managed to make the forest seem all mysterious. I also love the bottom panel because you chose to do a close up on her legs instead of a whole picture of her running

Oh damn. The lighting in this picture is amazing! I mean, it captures me instantly.
The powerful light through foliage which leaves behind captured spots of sunlight...

And the unortodox angles!

Beautiful, just beautiful

YellowBoots Featured By Owner May 30, 2009  Student
When I colour I usually use a kinda of large hard-edged round brush, kind of transparent. As I work on more details I use a smaller size brush. For lighting and stuff, you might want to look off photos or things in real life. It's hard to figure out that kind of stuff without looking off something at first. But when you're confident in that you'll find it a lot easier to do things from your imagination.

To make a new layer in photoshop you hit ctrl + shift + n and to flatten the layer hit ctrl + e I think.

What program do you use to paint?
Reply

Sometimes Painter, sometimes Photoshop. This one was entirely Photoshop I think. I drew this really late at night so I hardly remember even making it :lol:

xD happens to all of us

What version of Painter do you use? i have Essentials 4 and i have to say, the brushes are quite difficult ..
Reply
:iconyellowboots:
YellowBoots Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2009  Student
It's version 11. I don't know if I've used Essentials but I used to use some really old version- I don't remember any difficulty with the brushes, it was mostly the interface that threw me off, didn't know how to do anything in that program.

Man I wish I could paint like that! The patches of light and colours are lovely!
What techniques and medium do you use, got any tips to spare? :)
Reply
:iconyellowboots:
YellowBoots Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2009  Student
My "medium" is photoshop. Some of the trees in the back are from a foliage brush set I downloaded, but when I paint it's usually with the hard-edged round brush at opacity between 20-60. Sometimes I use the blur tool to make things transparent (like the lights and motes) but I think it's better to just use a hard edged low opacity eraser, gives it kind of painterly strokes instead of airbrush smoothness. Hmm, I don't know what else to say :lol:
