lmao who knows? XD half of the US claim they are anyway *shot* Say you ever plan on trying more painterly styles? So far most of your work has been vector, which is great, but it wouldn't teach you much if you're trying to learn lighting with it.
lol True but my claim is legit. I mean, look at my last name, Stevanus!
Actually, I have tried a few comic book styles, like so
But as far as the painted look goes, I don't know how to go about achieving the look, really. I haven't messed around with the right combo of brush settings in Photoshop enough yet. Of course Photoshop is so frickin big, it's hard to find the right combo unless you tinker for hours on end! For the coloring I showed you, I screened the layer with the light and added a texture to the color layer. It was my first time working with a comic book style and I idolize those guys for their ability to create amazing art! Like my idol right here on DA, , who is a phenomenal artist and even works for Marvel on The Superior Spider-Man. Actually, only a portion of my work is vector, the vast majority is raster, painted in Photoshop and hand inked, as well as hand drawn in pencil. I don't do completely digital art. I always start by hand with good 'ol fashioned paper and pencil.
Thank you! I'm glad you like it! Yeah, I was going to add a speech bubble might just do that later I was going to have him say; "Where the Hell are my toes?! My feet look like I'm wearing frickin boots!" Thanks! I'm really glad you like it! You're welcome!
Awesome! I knew reading your comics and sifting through that folder would help me get a feel for the type of character he is! I checked out a couple different drawings of yours before I ever started drawing him because I didn't know how he should be posed or what expression to give him.
Oh, that's what you use? O.o DAMN! You're doing it the hard way, man! I just use the pen tool and layer each shape, then offset the path about 1-3 pixels to give it the outlined look. I tried live paint but it's a pain in the ass and the pen tool is much quicker and involves less pain. I'll probably never use live paint again, now that I see how efficient the pen tool is.
