- NBA Love - by coreymill - NBA Love - by coreymill
= Full View =

- An illustration done for class. We had to do a political or social commentary, I chose to use Kim Jong-il for my project.

Highly influenced by 's work . . . many of the elements fit really well with the ideas used in this piece. Some textures from Mayang's, some of my own.

I am assuming that you mean the texture in the background.

- It's actually a combination of a couple different textures but basically you just find the textures you want to use, and overlay them over your image in photoshop.

- I usually end up setting the texture layer to multiply, screen, or overlay depending on what I am looking for. I am sure that there are some tutorials on here if you aren't sure what I am saying.

I usually get them from [link]

Either that or take my own photos or scan in textures I have created (like ink splatters or chalky textures, etc)

If you get the textures from somewhere online just make sure you follow their rules. Some will only allow you to use it for personal use, some want credit, etc ...

Thank you very much C:

- They really aren't that random ... it's more that this is something that I drew for school and they don't like me to draw in my more 'anime' influenced style.

You're welcome. Its almost wrong, but its so right. First off, he's a red commi. So any real american shouldn't like him. But, then again, making him the focus of a artistic piece opens up alot of possibilities.

I would usually use Painter because I used to hate coloring things in PS

coreymill Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2007
Yeah, I think it's just a matter of what you are comfortable with though. Painter was pretty much the first thing I ever used, so I can do things a bit quicker in it I think.
