Valkon

So I got to experiment with a tablet

Recommended Posts

That's quite the :bandwagon: that's running through here.

I got one BEFORE it was cool! or something like that. whatever makes me totally not a hipster, because being a hipster is too mainstream.

Another avatar picture. I decided to remake the one I made for Jorcer.

SNIP

Behold the Viking Hacker in his natural habitat, a subway bench.

Haha! I love it :)

Awesome work on all of the avatars Valkon... If you keep it up everyone here will have one

I doubt giving 124.000+ users their own personal avatar something an artist would look forward to :P

No need "to do me", Valkon. 'Cuz you already done me :)

Decided to try something a little different. Foreground (Beast + grassy hill) done in Photoshop, background (everything else) in Illustrator.

Based on the Amiga game Shadow of the Beast. Also, I've realized I'm not as good with Illustrator as I am with Photoshop.

To use the dodge/burn tool, which I hadn't noticed before. Basically what they do is increase/decrease the color of whatever you're using it on, so the highlights are done with the dodge tool and the shadows with the burn tool.

Careful with that. Some think that's hersey in the art world. I'd consider playing with actual colors using an airbrush tool and masking.

Usually I like to create a mini-pallet by picking a high, mid, and low color for a section. Altering the color for high and/or low can create some interesting effects, like a subtle glow to an enchanted weapon.

Nope.

It's supposed to be a head of an angry overweight man (it even has those popping vein things) but I obviously need to practice sculpt tool more.

Gotta' love that facial expression, considering what power he wields. He looks rather bothered with it, but in a Shikamaru sense.

i think he's just finding the whole experience rather limiting.

i mean, the power suit's great and all, but it's nothing compared to the thaumic conundrum generated with a little tinkering.
