Awesome! I just commented on the animated version of this and asked about a tutorial- then I saw this! I feel a bit silly now. I just read it and am very impressed. Thanks so much for taking the time to do this- I found it helpful and hope to apply it to my learning process- I could only dream to be as good as you one of these days! You are lucky you are so good and still young- you have a lot of options open to you. Im 26 and barely learning- hopefully my future holds some fun employment opportunities in store for me as well! I would love to do character work like this for something- anyways im rambling- AWESOME WORK!
WoW~! This is GOD LIKE 0_o This is really a kick ass tutorial and will definitely study this \m/ Thanks to masters like you, apprentices really learn a lot XD More Power \m/ BTW Make a vid Tut! and maybe your name will spread through the world
Cool, I think I learned so much.. I actually have no idea of what I learned... but I sure must have learned something . _ .' I'm trying it out. I'll try your theory now, I'll send you the link once it's done?
Do you use photoshop? Up next to where it shows the brush shape, there's a place where you can select the blending mode. This changes the way the brushstrokes you put down interact with the colors that are already on the image. Play around with it. It's fun.
Your tutorials are really helpful, man. Thanks again for putting these up!
Ironically, i think the 2nd-to-last step looks way better than the final step. I am usually a huge fan of atmosphereic perspective, but the value in the pre-completion picture packs so much punch ... it goes back to the old rule of which piece would catch the eye better from across a room, for me at least. Either way, i liked it before I ever saw the pre-steps!
I stand by what I said with the atmospheric perspective. It makes Oog look much less like a sticker on a white sheet of paper, in my opinion. Thank you for your input, though! I like hearing a variety of opinions.
Thanks for the input on the eye. Personally, I prefer the final version that I painted (which is why it's the final version, I guess), and both myself and another artist who critiqued me felt that the darker eye drew too much attention.
Thanks for posting this Moai, I think I learned a lot from this. Atleast It refreshed me again. I liked what you wrote in step four about rolling a boulder up a hill. I don't think I've seen it explained like that before. It kinda gave me a new point of view. Thanks again!
Thank you! That "boulder on a hill" analogy is a realization I had right as I was starting to work on this tutorial. It's an issue I have to deal with whenever I paint, so I felt that I needed to say a few words about it here.
