This was an intense and awesome read through. Would it be ok if I tried to do a really similar piece in order to "recreate" some of the affects you have? I'm really trying to push my level of work this year. I also absolutely adore a good harsh critique an would love to have your opinion on my works. Can I note you things on the occasion and have you critique something I'm working on?
Hey! Absolutely amazing. I particularly liked the way you speak about composition, overall structure/colour balance, focus point... These are incredibly important things that I only start to learn about, but they can definely make a great piece of art or ruin it. You did a great job and your approach is not software specific, what I really like (I am working with GIMP). Keep going on! And finally did you get a price at the Blizzard contest? I hope so
Hell yeh! That's so awesome of you to say that. Really. I put effort into these tuts. but I know now everyone takes the time to read 'um. So it means a lot to me knowing you got something out of it. Appreciate it, sir. Now get to painting!!
Hell yes, I'm also probably trying to get a computer soon. Since I'm torturing my laptop everytime I open Photoshop. I'll probably want to talk to you about your rig. Are you guys still meeting up at school? Text it!
Thats good doing it that way cause then you create your own little way of doing things and not making yourself a copy It's amazing how quick it is to forget the thumbnail but then remember how vital it is.
