OBJECTIVE: SELL THIS DAMN BOOK, DANNY.
At first, Gabriel was nothing more than a character named ONE. He had no backstory, no face, nothing. I just wanted to create a character that was a badass, yet with a sense of humor.
I was inspired by such characters as Boba Fett, Wolverine, Deadpool and Clint Eastwood from The Man With No Name trilogy. I needed to create something that fit that build, however, I'll admit, it wasn't intended at first.
I uploaded him on December 8th, 2008, (which, you can find here: http://danluvisiart.deviantart.com/art/GABRIEL-107612010?q=gallery%3Adanluvisiart%2F7848546&qo=50) and he became one of the most popular characters of the series, if not, the most. Soon I started finding him on forums, websites, fashion blogs (what?), and more.
But what hit me so hard was that the majority of the comments rela

OBJECTIVE: CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND STORY BUILDING
I began working pretty heavily on LMS during the first quarter of 2009. I had now a handful of characters, a rough idea of the story, and a general scope of what I wanted the book to be. To get started, I felt every book should have a theme. Movies do, right?
Spider-Man: Great powers, great responsibility.
Batman: Be more than just a man, a symbol, and be remembered a legend.
Star Wars: The myth of a heroes destiny, and the truth that allows him to be set free.
Who was Gabriel? What type of character or archetype was he? What were his rises and

I have uploaded the pictures of the main pattern pieces for the jacket to my scrapbook. Take a look if you are having troubles modifying your own pattern! (I couldn't find the pattern for the collar, I drew it on a piece of paper somewhere and I think it is gone now... sorry!)
I have had a lot of requests asking how I made the jacket for my cosplay, so I decided I would write a quick overview of what went into making it. I will not go into excruciating detail, but if you would like more help on any particular section, please leave a comment and I would be happy to elaborate!

UNDERSTANDING AND CUSTOMIZING YOU OWN BRUSHES (Thats right, your OWN.)
Alot of people has been asking me about my brushes, like if they were magical, and my new colors were just because of them. Sorry to destroy the fantasy, but brushes dont work that way. Brushes has only one purpose and that is:
WHY ITS WRONG TO SHARE BRUSHES ON PAINTER, INSTEAD OF PHOTOSHOP?
Its REALLY EASY, to create a brush or even a category or capture a brush on Painter. The problem its that brushes on Painter dont behave exactly as Photoshop, what plays the mayor role on Painter is that makes brushes a bit better than Photoshop, a lot of people thinks that is blending, but thats not the real thing about Painter, its:
Brush tracking, plays a big role in how brushes behave, so you have the brush, need to callibrate brush tracking and then callibrate it for your hand,

light and color stuffhilight and color stuff9 months ago in Personal More Like This
i just wanted to quickly put together some basic things about how i think of light and color that i think are important to be mindful of in order to make meaningful decisions about these things in your pictures. it's not going to be very fancy, but i hope its useful to somebody. im not good at writing stuff so please bear with me.
to see anything we need light. light is emitted from a emission source. after that, as i see it there are basically 3 ways light reaches your eyes
1. it is reflected off of things (such as objects)
2. it is transmitted through things (such as air)
3. it is scattered by things (such as air)
let's say we have a perfectly red ball. we know this ball is red because when we shine white light on it, red light is reflected back at us. so how does that work?
to answer that we must understand something about white light. white light is light that is made up of every color within (at least) the visible spectrum. it has red, blue, green, yellow, and so on
