oh and by the way, nice lips and expression on the girl! and i like the smudge/streak effect in the sky a lot. do u know how to make it look like a dry brush streaked through the paint, by the way? an effect someewhat similar to how u did the bkgrnd in the almost exact middle of the page. not needed on this piece by any means but it looks like u might know and i need to fig this out, damnit!
hey hey thanks so much! glad u like the girl ahh as for the brush strokes, i actually used the chalk brush first to blend out the overall shades and colours, then i minimised it to very small and start scribbling on certain areas i want to blend it in. if u look closely, i'm actually using a small brush to blend. i hope i answered correctly haha
thats pretty close to what i was lookin for in terms of explainin. i was talkin to someone else and they said the Painter program will do that effect better. but thats just one other guys opinion, so i dont know
haha actually painter is suppose to create these kinda effects better than photoshop, but i dun like to use painter becoz i couldn,t get used to the interface and the program always crashes which can result in ur file being corrupted. anyway i think there's another program call artrage or something, i think its pretty good too. maybe u can try that out also.
thnks! hope that one wins, although i doubt it. they'll pry opt for some hack graphic design/swirl shape generic piece that EVERY graphic designer does nowadays....! but thanks. i checked that artrage deal, im gonna see if i can download a full version with a crack. hey! on google video, type in DRAGON SPEED PAINTING. u of all people will like what this dude does! worth your time for real...

yo this is freakin awesome! i have a suggestion that i would really like to see on this: add the burnished metal effect to the armor, please!!!!! im starting to practice w it on other pieces and i think this effect, especially if subdued a little so as not to be to overpowering, would lend itself to your piece nicely. thats my critique, i am now leaving the biulding!
