sea monkey by bongoshock sea monkey by bongoshock
It's nice to have a 3 day weekend eh? I'm doing a bit of practice for next week. I'm a bit rusty on speedpainting, so I'm getting in some practice before tuesday.

3 hours in photoshop.

happy memorial day! eat lots of bbq. :D

Holy...think I just pissed myself...lol, anybody else mention that wicked smile? Hehehe, people always laugh at me and say "Haha, you're afraid of water?!" Know what I tell 'em, "No, I'm afraid of what's IN the water." There are so many parts in the ocean that we haven't been able to explore yet, God knows what lurks within.

Wow, this is very well made. I love to see how people imagen a sea monster, and how they make them look like, their teeth and the light they make.

I like to see it, but I am terribly frightened of deep water xD

scary thing is this pretty much exists in the deep ocean. I forget the exact name, but it some giant mouthed freakish eel. Maybe you referenced it, maybe its just a nightmarish creature come true,

thanks! yeah, I'm afraid of deep water myself. it's not like i think i'd get eaten by sharks or something. I even hate the possibility of my toe getting nipped by a sand crab. hehehehe. but even in fresh water lakes I'm like 'how big are the fish down there? *gulp*'

Welcome :) By the way, if you have time can you check out my latest WIP and let me know if u have any tips? Somethings seem wrong about the dress (eg-length to cover the feet) but I'm not sure what to do about it and can't really find proper refs...

Heh, I actually deleted that one...though I'd appreciate any comments you have on this piece, I'm trying to fix it up for a Convention (squeee it looks like I'll be sharing a table with a company I've colored comics for!). Originally the wings had scales but I tried to make them look more realistic and less flat...but maybe the scales would be better, I dunno....^^;

Thanku!! :D

Teach me your skillz, MEANYPANTS! xD

...no, I seriously mean it. >>; What programs and brushes did you use?
Reply
:iconbongoshock:
bongoshock Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2008
i used photoshop. i made my own brush for this, so if you want it here's what you do (forgive me if you know how to make brushes. I'm just gonna explain it all out)
make a new psd about 150x150. make a new layer and use the ellipses selection tool to make a narrow ellipse. feather the selection by 6, then fill with black. now press ctrl+t and rotate the ellipse to about a 45 degree angle (like a calligraphy brush)
go to edit> define brush preset
now, you should be able to go to your brushes and the one you just made will be at the very end of the list.
Go into window>brushes and click on the header 'brush tip shape'. take the spacing down to 1%
now click the check box on shape dynamics. make sure the size jitter is set to 0 and select pen pressure from the dialog box just below.
now click the check box on dual brush and select the maple leaf brush. set the diameter and spacing slider to whatever you think looks pretty.
now click the checkbox on other dynamics and make sure the opacity jitter is set to zero. select pen pressure from the dialogue box.
also click on the check box for smoothing.
lastly (i sorry if this seems long! hehe) there is a little triangle on the tippy top of the menu next to the word 'brushes'. click that and select new brush preset. this will save all these settings. you can name the brush whatever you like.
that's it!

i found the way that's easiest for me to start a speedpainting like this one is to zoom way out and just block in the main colors first. like, throwing in a gradient for the sky and then blocking in the background- light and sky-color-tinted in the back, and darker and bolder colored in the front. it may not work for everyone and there are many different techniques, but i like this one. :)

thanks for the comment!

yeah. the maple leaf on its own is not a very good brush. everything's better when we work together! :B
