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 =p

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
dcwj's avatar
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. =)

hmmmm artrage u say.....thank u sensei!! check out my mountain dew contset entree if u got time. want yer opinion...
dcwj's avatar
yep u can go check it out! =) and hey ur mountain dew contest entree has so much detail haha thats cool! great effort man =)
LordoftheBling-XXL's avatar
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...
dcwj's avatar
hey good luck dude! artrage seems like its very good ar my frenn showed me and it feels like there is no lag or crashing problems like painter! =)

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!
dcwj's avatar
hey hey thanks! yea i think that will help bring out the metal effects more, i'll take note of it! and thanks so much for ur critique and comments! =D
LordoftheBling-XXL's avatar
yeah its pretty simple to do. if i can do it, it cant be too hard. thanks for your help on other questions man
dcwj's avatar
