The Traveler by ThePleonasticPotato The Traveler by ThePleonasticPotato
Have you ever watched one of the live art streams? You really should, I learned a lot from yesterdays. And It's fun.

This time around, instead of starting with colors and then refining them into shape, I painted in grayscale and added color afterwards. Changing things up here. I live on the edge.

Time to paint: 3:02:36

And of course, the time lapse: [link]

Oh. Wow.

 

I'm in awe. Seriously.

 

The contrast of light and shadow, even how Trixie's one eye is lit up under the brim of her hat....it's breathtaking. Just beautiful.

I love how the lighting makes it feel so mysterious, and how Trixie's cape and hat stars shine. Nice

Everything about his has me in awe. It makes my own art feel inadequate. :c

Thanks, I'm flattered you think so, but don't talk down yourself too much. Even the best artists feel that way now and again, especially when they are just starting out. Keep practicing and all that jazz.

I suppose it's only too late to do anything when you're dead. Until then, I suppose I should do whatever I can to improve myself.

Thank you! Sadly, I am not a wizard,(though I would like to be) so the best I can do is attempt teaching by showing you a sped up version of the painting process: [link]

Very cool video. Just saying, if you ever do a tutorial, I'd definitely watch it (hint, hint). How long have you been doing digital drawing?
Reply
:iconthepleonasticpotato:
ThePleonasticPotato Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I got my first tablet two summers ago, in 2011. So about two years. Though I drew on paper a lot before that.

As for a tutorial, I would definitely be willing to try at some point, but not relatively soon; I would want to buy a proper microphone and have time to plan out what I would say. If I do ever attempt this, It would be durring summer or later.

words can not express the amazing art that this fanbase produces daily, what program do you use, or do you have any suggestions?

I have a mac as well, they work well for art and music. :) As for my software, I use Photoshop CS5, which I find to be the most powerful and versatile. Corel Painter is also pretty useful, though it uses quite a bit of RAM...

It's been a while since I managed to see a livestream, mainly because EQD's streams are during the night for me. In any case this drawing is just amazing. Love the lighting effects.

There really should be more streams imo, at least more diversified by time zones.

If I may ask, what live stream are you referring to? I've watched a few various ones and it's fun, but I never saw anything announced after that. I don't know where to find updates about who is livestreaming when.

ThePleonasticPotato Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013  Student Digital Artist
The stream I was watching was assassinmonkey's. EQD often shows a list of who is streaming on saturdays, those are the ones I check out anyway. As for any other days, people are too busy with work most times, so you wont find many.
