Photoshop Illustrations

I'm sure everyone saw my foray into Photoshop painting with my Magik piece, posted last week. I would never have had the nerve to try to pull something like that off without some practice first.

Like Magik.

Hey folks, here's the finished version of that Magik pin-up.

I'm pretty happy with it. I think it's fair to say that I tore this shit up!

Magik update

Ok, so back to this Illyana piece, here's what I got so far. Not bad if I do say so myself. This is my 2nd time attempting this painterly style. The first time came last week, when I accepted a commission from an agency in Wisconsin. Their project required a photo-realistic style so I kinda just dove into it hoping for the best. It's crazy how I  actually learn stuff sometimes.

 

 Magik!

 

Photoshop does take a longer time to get to where I want it, but I have to say that the payoff at the end  is kinda worth it. So I guess I don't totally hate it.

Taking your time sucks.

Hey Livejournal, look who I'm working on.
