Anyway, that's all boring! You're here for the progress, been getting back into the swing of things, done a lot of quick paints and some more detailed ones!
I tried out some new techniques for these first two paintings, done using a photoshop tool called the custom shape tool inspired by how a friend does his amazing paintings (Jonathan Powell > http://www.facebook.com/jonathanp45?fref=ts) he's amazing like him on Facebook! :)
Did a study of a screen grab from the film drive in anticipation of a painting that im currently doing for my brother's birthday. Not really happy about how it turned out, used a messy brush for it and when i tried to rectify it by going over stuff it made it look so much worse. Although the neon likes don't look too bad i guess!
Going to be wapping out more and more of these environment photo studies again!
Couple of random quick thumbnails, i'm working on the top one i might actually use it for something, a nice swamp area for my turtle dude to live in (thumb below it). We will see if anything comes of it!
Hope you liked this update be sure to stick around there will be more next week!
