Did this digital painting  of Lebron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers Basketball team.  Really need to work on my new portfolio but just haven’t been inspired to do so yet.  This image took about 20 hours.  I think I will work on a couple more hours before I quit but just thought I would put it up for you guys to see.

Back to something tradition but done digitally.  Water Lily is a flower that i did in photoshop cs6

But it chanced the other day that I scented a white water- lily…. It is the emblem of purity…. What confirmation of our hopes 
is in the fragrance of this flower! I shall not so soon despair of the world for it, notwithstanding slavery, and the cowardice and want of principle of Northern men. It suggests what kinds of laws have prevailed longest and widest, and still prevail, and that the time may come when man’s deeds will smell as sweet. Such is the odor which the plant emits…. It reminds me that Nature has been partner to no Missouri compromise. I scent no compromise in the fragrance of the water-lily.

Working with black and white images I begin using a different technique to start, by using a of the image.  Although the image isn’t a black and white image the assignment was to reproduce it in black and white.

Doing the Daily challenge at Conceptart.org.  This should allow me to show you the progress in my journey to Level Up! my digital art.  The image for today is  Pearl Alice Frusha, Pinup and the image for sketch and line art took me 2 hours so far.  I think that it’s best to create the line art from the sketch, but I tried to clean up the sketch .  So next time will do both.  Using Photoshop CS6, hard brush set at 8 pixels.


Step 1. and 2 – Sketch and InkingScreen Shot 2014-05-28 at 3.21.39 PM

Step 3.  – Block in colors using hard round

Step 4.  Put shadows and Light on Skin.  Using soft round brush only working on the skin.  I will do detailing in a separate layer.  Also Face and hands and Feet I separate.  This took me about 30 mins.  Colors may not be exact these challenges allow no cheating with color picker. Drat since I am a bit color blind with some colors they may not be near.

Step 5.  Created separate shading for other areas.  Combine all the separate shadings.   Use soft round brush for shading and did some clean up on the edges.  The final step is Detailing.  Time 5 hrs shading

Screen Shot 2014-05-28 at 10.00.52 PM


Step 6.  Detailing  and final image.  Merged all layers and cleaned edges using hard and soft round brushes.  added some details to the suit.

Going to add a new skill speedpainting, hopefully this will let me do a video of it.  Working realistic doing a video will require more than one video until I learn how to speed them up.

What is SpeedPainting? -is a type of art practice where the artist has a limited time to finish the work. The time can vary…. Wikipedia. The time allowed for these is 30 minutes.  You can find more images from other artist on Facebook. Sometimes you may find that when searching for speed painting you will get the time lapse video which is different.
