Mr. Brown

100% Paint.Net

this was a photo that was made into a vector drawing by BoltBait and Vista asked me if I would color it for the pictorium.

just about finished needs some fine tuning and a little bit of clone work yet. but coming along. not sure how to get the craigyness of his skin with Paint.Net and really really wish there was a smudge tool.

this is the first time I've done an actual person's photo and not just one from my imagination.

Could you do cragginess the way you do the rest? Except do frosted glass insted of gaussian blur?

Your works seem to be improving at an exponential rate.

Perhaps to get a more craggy look to his skin. You could add a layer and with just a black gradient. (Primary color:black, Secondary color: Transparent). And use the dents plugin, with a small scale setting. If this does not produce fine enough cragginess- select the area and use the move tool to scale it down to your liking.

Maybe that would help...

Keep up the great work Oma!

ummm, didn't try this but I'm going to keep it in mind for another project I've perking away in the background.

I asked for a wacom for Christmas but received two books on drawing instead. One on drawing portraits written by a police forensic artist, and the other on drawing the head and figure by Jack Hamm. Christmas morning I was a little disappointed but by Christmas night impressed. both books have helped more than the wacom would have.

Perhaps this is a good thing.

I need to improve my drawing skills, or PDN needs to get brushes.
Which ever comes first will probably justify getting a graphics tablet.
Or Photoshop, you know that would be nice too. haha

More-so than I had expected, playing with this camera has taught me quite a bit about composition. This is perhaps the worst aspect of my artistic abilities.

It seems that the holidays brought artistic teachings.

Make the most of them, I'm sure we will do.

Photos are being processed, as I type this message.

You do the same.
