The Artful Log (updated every so often)

Post  The Artful Lost on Wed Mar 26, 2008 8:48 pm

I might as well just keep one thread for the things I make, as to not clutter up with each one I do. And so, without further ado-


Title: Our World, Divided




"I met her in the solemn lake ground of the lacuna, quietly humming to herself a tune that would attract any passerby. I had nothing more than the thirst to have her on my lips, horrified in the aspects of what would become of her. I was the wolf to the straying lamb, more than prepared to do what was necessary to keep myself alive. I approached her bluntly, aware that she may run, but that would make the chase seem even more appeasing. In moments, it would be over- I would be hungry no more and her soul would have just been yet another victim to the unfortunate "wrong place at the wrong time". I slowly approached her, slipping behind her in a great darkness. She turned horrified at my presence... yet did not run. I stood fully in sadistic glee, wondering if she would fall to her knees in plea of mercy or simply give into shock...

".... t-that's a nice cloak..." she said.
".......... thank you?" I utter back, confused as any other would be.

It seemed strange enough. I lost my cravings to devour the life of this woman. Was I utterly dumbfounded by her reaction of my presence or was I just caught off guard?

It seems now that it wouldn't be important any longer. Today, now two years swiftly gone... she has been with me ever since. This world that I have accepted and submitted to seems... broken- divided, if you will. Her presence brings about change, a soothing luminence that one can not find, even if scouring the moon for it's lunar magnitudes. And she... she seems drawn to the origins of where I have been, my travels and my tightly wound past.

It is here, in the grassy meadows over looking the mountains that blockade the sky's horizon, that she peered into my world and I to hers. And it was then that I realized... we could not leave either world alone.

We have created... Our World... Divided."

AL? I usually use Photoshop for my drawings alone, but I also used OpenCanvas to help along with the 'painter'ly effects. But 90% of this is Photoshop coloring, from start to finish.

Ooh... I get it now.
And yes, you can use the pen tool (P) or the line tool.

The pen tool will let you create open or closed shapes. You can fill a closed shape by rightclicking and selecting 'Fill path' or stroke the path with 'Stroke path'. The stroke is defined by with offset tool you use (Pencil, Brush, Art History Brush, Stamp, etc.)

The line tool is paired with the rectangle, r. rectangle, ellipse, polygon, and the custom shape tool. It's under the Text tool (T) if you have CS2 or earlier. Hold shift to constrain the measurements to 90 degree angles. Then you can rightclick and either fill the line by selecting 'Fill path' or stroke the path with 'Stroke path'. Once again, the storke is defined by the offset tool you choose.

Alternately, you can draw a straight line with the brush tool by holding shift after you click and draw.

What?! 9000?!

You just need to give it more of a chance, Jenn. ^-^; You've only used it a little from what I've heard you talk about. And it's quite easy. I learned from just a few tutorials and playing around with the tools and effects. I won't say I've mastered the program, but I'm getting better with each time I open it. (except for the times I open it, get distracted and then close it to save some RAM speed.)

It's either you do it or you don't. You could always try painting surrealism or just random shapes and things. You don't have to go into Manga/Anime.

Example:


Title: Little Hide

Based on part life/ part Snow Patrol Lyrics.

Ina wrote:wow artful...jesus...your art is so striking...

Comics... I can probably do a page or so until I lose interest or get dissatisfied with it. I've tried, believe me. I get irritated sometimes drawing the same thing over and over again till I make modifications to the character and then it no longer seems coherent with the original idea. And I think too much about things, I wouldn't know where to start and where it would go. So I do short comics, 4-komas, 4 panel jokes, etc.


Title: OSWWT # 2: Half-strip Ninja Glomp

They don't take long, are pretty much quick to do and just are fun to make with an obvious joke. Razz

Next up, some pixel art step-by-step.

Ah, you mean the move from traditional to digital. I had the same trouble as well, but just kept trying it. Getting a drawing tablet really helped me get the "pen to paper" feel while actually working with the computer. I mean, I still work with paper sometimes and just scan in my work, taking it from there to lineart and coloring.

It just takes some time, maybe a $200 (Gawd...) accessory to mimic the feel of pen and paper to your computer screen. Maybe I should show some of my handiwork from a couple scans.

Title: Colder Silence (tentative)

Blue 0.7 & Graphite 0.5 pencil lead. I prefer mech pencils over the traditional B's and H's.

What I'm working on so far...


Title: Aeria

Tinkering around with some things in PS like belnding options and filters. Over 50+ layers to this thing on a 3200x2400 px with 300dpi page. Vista-like warp swirls and some tweaks later (and shrunken down to 1600x1200)- viola! This! I like it.... and hate it. I wanted something darker for my deskstop.



Title: Elimentium v2.5 Wallpaper

Simple, dark, and it flows well with my system's theme. By the way, Elimentium is my computer's official name, a part of the E-Core series.

Some vector/vexel art on my other alias of ReqWeuS (RWS, for short).



Title: 22

'a.k.a. "Brand New Flava"

The Japanese text reads "Giant Robot Anime Coke".

I'm hoping to advance some coloring and get some fully done pieces soon... in due time.

you know bro.. you're getting so darn good.. i wonder at times if you even make these.. or if anyone makes these.. absurd but seems simpler to imagine they just came into existence.. these pics.. on their own.

Honest.

"If you do not think a thought, does it still exist?"

That's the only thing that came to mind for me. But thanks, sis. I am trying to improve more with coloring than actually drawing. It's fun to draw, it's only 1/4th of the entire task. Finishing it up, with all my alterations... bah, I was at this for MONTHS (aside from waiting for my new computer).
