What is that? Also did you download CS5 or buy it?

I bought cs5 and a wacom tablet.

I painted this hawaiian beach at sunset with palm trees on the tablet.

Hi, that has a nice surreal quality to it and it is pleasing to the eye. Just for fun, if you put a hazed double sun
in there, it would be an Avatar to make the ATS fringe go wild. But then, you would have all kinds of folks asking you to create Avatars for them.

I really like it!!

I use photoshop more for composites and things so it's great to see what can be done from just the paint brush tool!

Thank you dave. I love the new brushes... I am upgradeing from photoshop 6. Also this intuos4 wacom tablet is absolutly creativity inspiring. I've never felt so free to create in photoshop before.

Here is a Hawaii road I just drew:

i like the first piece, and the second I really enjoy. IMHO the second has the unique flavor one gets using knives instead of brushes. gets the image to the eye so nicely.

OP if you don't mind me asking, what did the Tablet and Software set you back?

I bought the small intuos4 at best buy for 200.00 and I'm ashamed to admit how much i wasted on cs5 suite: link.

Here's one I'm working on but it's almost 5 am I gotta sleep. I'll finish it later and post the finished project.

Very realistic.

One glance at your first Hawaii brought bac vivid memories of a morning on a beach there where
it was misty, drizzling, blue and pink.

I like the second Hawaii too!

Very nice! Beautiful painting.

What kinds of paints do you use and what type of canvas?

I did this in photoshop cs5 extended. I used my wacom intuos4 small tablet to draw then paint it. I used a photo as reference. Same way for all three photos. It is 100% painted. I also paint with canvas and acrylics, but as i'm kind of in between state all my brushes and paints are packed right now.

I worked as a graphic artist for a few years. I got that job with my portfolio, as I am self taught on computer design. I have a music education degree but I took a lot of art classes since I was little. I volunteered and built up a portfolio doing work for non profit agencies. I went in as a temp for a big project and I was the only temp they kept and put on permanent. I'm a better musician than artists... the tiger is probably the best painting I've ever done in my mind.

Thanks everyone for the complements and encouragement

This is a reproduction I just painted in photoshop. I originally painted this on Arcylic. Photoshop did a decent job but I could not quite capture the mistiness I could do with acrylic.

Thank you Jaxon

Here's my newest: hulahula

posted on Mar, 16 2011 @ 10:20 AM
I've been asked how I do my painting. So I'm documenting it here:

First I sketch the subject (use the scroll at the bottom of the screenshot to see the original sketch on the right)

second I fill in with general colors

Then I like to goto a detail like the eyes

Then I work on blending all the paint

Now I have the general lay of the painting

I haven't slept in over 24 hours so I've got to go do some things then I'll come back and finish this painting later.

I hope this helps certain individuals understand that this is 100% painting on a digital medium. Yes I'm using a photo for reference, but that does not make it any less painting. The tracing technique I use to get the outlines is the same one used by artists with tracing paper to get the original drawing. I'm not using any filters or effects. I am only using the wonderful brushes in photoshop cs5. I even make a few like for the palm tree in hulahula to simulate the palm fronds. The only tools used are brushes, blur, dodge, and burn so far in any of the paintings above.
