So this is what I've been working on lately
It's been nice to step back from covers and lose myself once again in my artwork. However, I've been having problems with this one. I don't know what it is about it that makes it feel 'unfinished'. Well, probably because it is unfinished
Is it because the woman just seems to be standing in the middle of no-where and with no purpose? Or is it where I've placed her? She's on the edge of the image, looking out. Is that it? What is it that screams ADD MORE??? (yeah, I know the castle looks crappy but I am just playing around with things atm
I've also been trying to understand Textures and how they work to make your artwork really come alive. Seems I just ain't going to get it
No matter what textures I attempt to apply, they all seem to make the artwork look messy.
I've tried to study other artists that I admire, like *kayceeus
They manage to have really eye catching tones whilst not losing their artwork behind a myriad of distracting scratches and swirls. Perhaps I'm not lowering my opacity enough? Am I meant to erase sections so that it doesn't stand out so much?
It's times like these that I really wish I had someone leaning over my shoulder telling me what I should do. But unfortunately I don't so if anyone out there can give me some suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. Oh, a tutorial on Textures for Idiots would work a treat
Congratulations to the winners of
's amazing Nemoralia Contest!
UPDATE - Just a quickie to let you know that I managed to renew my sub. As someone suggested, I selected 'Subscribe a Friend' and just entered my own name there. Easy peezy
Is anyone able to tell me how I renew my subscription? Yeah, I know you go to the subscription page but for some reason there isn't a 12 mth option. When I put 12 into the qty box .. well, let's just say that I ain't paying THAT much for a sub
If I put in 4 (3mth subs) it ends up as $36 but the 12 mth sub for newbies is $33.
Can anyone fill me in?
Here we are folks. October features. I'm pleased to have stumbled across a bit more photography and traditional artworks as well as a fantastic CSS tutorial for idiots (like me
Been doing a bit of reading of late. Right into the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward.
Talk about hot! Lots of bad ass vampires. Just my cup of tea
Anyway, it's inspired me in the art area so hopefully I can get time to finish and add some more artwork to my gallery.
I've also been trying to teach myself how to do life-like scars. It's amazing how many people seem to think that scars should be open and bloody
Personally I'd call these wounds
, but going by my searches on the internet I must be wrong
Anyway, enough of me. Below is another feast for your eyes. So get yourself a cuppa, sit back and enjoy
Edited to add: Aaaahhh
My favourite just got voted off Australian Idol ... nnnnoooooooooooo ... I don't know if I'll be able to continue to watch the show now. Although, I do like Daniel. I reckon Matt's going to win it though. He's got all the tweenies behind him
However, I can't deny the kid is talented
*sigh* I can't believe Mark's gone
Time to go drown my sorrows
