Something I like about hulahuga, It's that each time, he allows me to explain myself giving me the exemple I've already choosen for my next comment.



What's the difference here? What's the link?
Between:
technique-painting-(artistical) creativity



Hehe. I do all I can to help =).

I'd say that technique is just a measure of how well you do the art (like strictly technically, obviously) whilst creativity can be more measured in the concepts. One might also say that technique is how you apply the paint whilst creativity is what and where you use it...


The girl looks neat !


Ps: cool eye as well :-). Might do an overpaint on that one .

Seemed I was inspired .




Ps:
Somehow I lost a bit of image quality because I had to do a printscreen of it because photoshop freaked out...


Ps2 (wonder when the next gen is coming ):
It is definetly in order to give you a little homage Washka... Some of the techniques you've used with your brushes which I tried to replicate when reshaping the eye were very hard to do... Might be because I've been using CS5 brushes but still... Kudos to you!

Wow awesome hulahuga, nice inspiration on this one, in my opinion your colors are working better than mine there. The texture effect is also a good idea. Thanks.

By the way, talking about texture and effect, I've been playing a bit on toshop too:

What about those pearlbands of the east??? Might be cool as well .

I like the design of the throneroom, you loose perhaps a bit to much detail in the colored version...

How do you do all that red and yellow texture?? Is it a brush or what?

Consider going into the hue/saturation levels and tweak them, that's a part of what I did to get the colors right .. Might lift your image...


Ps: I think the colors worked better as well (a bit cocky... :P).

StrongMind

Yes, I've lost lot's of details on this one hulahuga, but it's an athmos test so...
Red and yellow colors are from a texture on an hard light layer, then I brush a bit on the alpha (hard round brush with opacity 60-70%).

I'll try to do others still life then Vatsel.

New One for the conceptuals serie, title is "Strong Mind", was a bit tired after a few hours on it, but maybe I'll continue the work on it some day:

I'll hulahuga, but no too much, I like to let some self interpretation. Maybe I'll also add some old book, what do you think?

And I'm quite sure I'll use the previous color eye for one of my next painting.

Thanks darknake, like your last robot, agree with chunkymunky on the lightning, and this time you made some light background, I think your image suffocate less like this. I also like your last bloodknight.

Three new ones, a robot girl concept and two WIP:

You need to elongate his chin a bit more then, and perhaps shorten his forehead...
Book sounds nice, or perhaps an anemone as a night lamp...

Girl is cool, but the spikes have a more interesting design. What if you put a lot of those on a giant dark landscape with realistic lightning and drawing but with those same fictitious elements... think of it

The doc is in action again...

Thanks hulahuga, you know you're helping me a lot in my work, you're giving me the best comments here and I really appreciate that.

Water theme is quite interesting for Strong Mind, I'll think about it. (Not too much )
Won't shorten the "brain" part, want something really huge, don't know exactly where is the chin.
Like the anemone idea, I could also add some tentacles, some kind of calamar style, it could fit with the concept, I'll test that too.

Could you explain/sketch a bit more about the dark landscape design and the spikes?
If you've got some time, maybe you can show me what you mean?

Sure, why not


Regarding the "strong mind"...
The chin is the pointy area at the end of your jaw... . I usually just google the word if I come across any anatomical term in english...
And please do try the anemone, do the light as you wish, but a nice, soft pinkish light might be nice (blue might be cool as well ).
What if you continued on defining his hair as well .


Cheers matey!
