Robert and Bill discuss Fear of Success for comic book creators. Can creators sabotage their careers because they fear success?
@narzqyahoo-com Unfortunately, other than the anatomy looking a little off in reference to the head to the body, I can't really speak to your digital painting. Looks nice really except for the pose.
I watched the videos with interest. The short one was a nice summary of the steps you took while I really would have liked to have the steps you took in the longer video outlined for others who would most likely learn something about digital coloring. Myself, included,
Is this your first attempt at coloring? I'd like to know more about your experience and how you went about it.
Thanks for your response. I suppose the problem with the head is that it is behind her shoulder which was how she stood in the photo reference while flexing. These types of poses can seem unatural and stiff but are how bodybuilders display in competition.maybe a better option would be to add motion rather than follow reference. I will make better vids with outline as soon as i actually know what im doing. I did the drawing traditionally in graphite, photographed it on tablet. Will take a cleaner pic next time. Changed color to a vermillion. Made sperate layers set to multiply for base mid tones, added dark tones. Selection tools weren't working for me so i filled color and cleaned each channel after. Highlights were done on separate layers set to lighter color. Not sure if that was the proper setting but it seemed to work. On skin, to achieve dark tones, i eyedroped the base tone and darkened and added more saturation for two levels and moved wheel a bit towards red. Opposite for highlights and moved wheel toward yellow.
@narzqyahoo-comI hope to recruit other instructors into the ShoutFyre including color artists who can give you and others some better feedback and help.
