hey adam i got a question dont exactly follow up on your version of the wonder woman story (if u have even started it yet) but i saw a vid on you talkin about it and im interested....wat ideas do u have for the inviso jet??? that shud be awesome to see with a reasonable explantion behind it lol
As always, wonderful. The smile in particular is just beautiful. The eyes, though...usually you give Wonder Woman more John Buscema-ish eyes, and here they look more Hildebrandt-y.Not sure I like it as much as usual, but still, you do a darned gorgeous Diana!
I did it because I need to show gradation in her hair, but because her darkest hair was butting up against the edge of the printable ink thresholds for this piece, a Normal Mode Gradient Tool gradation created some wierd colors in the transition. I've found that using Dissolve helps alleviate the problem a little.
wow. I'd like to see the printed version to see how that looks. That's interesting, I always wondered why dissolve was in there, I kind of thought it was to do some pixelated art or something. I've never used it as a result, if it stops those weird colour bands with gradients when printing, seems pretty useful. Thanks!
So when it goes to print, it prints at 500 dpi? Sorry, last question, I promise!
wow, i just find it so bizarre how photorealistic your work is. it's like you ref off of a photo each time. but i assume that you don't based on the consistency in all of your work and your rough sketches.
No. I only use it when I think I can improve some aspect of a piece. On some peices I mights use no reference, on others I might use reference on an elbow or an eye, on others I may use a lot. It all depends on the situation and the assignment.
ah ok. what i meant was that all of your artwork has so much consistency and realism that it looks like you ref the entire thing - the proportions and lighting are always so real. but it's just your extreme talent! plus occasional use of references, as i have just learned. :]
Ah, so that's how your glow effects are done! I'll have to try out your coloring technique sometime! I'm a fan of the pencil tool, too (you don't end up with a million tiny pixels flying all over the place, like with the airbrush!). Keep it up! Greets from Berlin (come and do a show here sometime )
