I just wanted to update my followers on my lack of activity in the past few months. I may have told a few of you that I am working on a really BIG painting that will take me next to forever to complete... I have not forgotten. However in the past few months and weeks I have been the most busiest I have been in my life. A lot of it involves a pile of stuff I need to do from work (I work as a full-time graphic designer by the way) and the rest is preparation for my summer holidays. So with these things taking a chunk out of my painting time it's been difficult to find those extra hours. So that's the reason. Just thought you should know...

HI :D how are you doing? :)

I'm sort of taking a break from digital art for a while (we'll see how long that lasts!) I'm concentrating more on learning motion graphics. I may post more digital art in the mean time. How about yourself?

Thanks! :D :D

Yeah I spend longer than most people would have the patience to on a painting. Might as well. It's not like I'm against the clock or anything. Better to spend time perfecting it than rushing it.

You have a wonderful way with coloring! How do you make the textures so realistic?
you've just earned another watcher ^^

Thanks Annie. Really appreciate that!

It's just years of practice I guess. I really like to zoom in and make each part as realistic as possible. Sometimes you'd be surprised at how effective a regular black or white brush can be. Like when I try to make a metallic piece look shiny using a full 100% white brush really brings out the shine to the extreme. Obviously you have to pick and choose your spots. But something like a few streaks make it pop. I used to only use the regular hard brush for the whole painting but lately I've been working with a chalk brush. There are some very good brushes out there that speed up the texturing process. Not to mention textures themselves that can be overlayed. Although I've never done that last one because I find the whole colour matching process tedious. And I have a tendency to get it wrong too. :D
