More concept tagging. Here's the original by Mansir,and to the left is what I came up with. About 2 hours.

Surf Princess

the sands of... something or other, right?Who knows? This started out as a random seed-type drawing like the one below it, but it quickly veered into some other kind of territory. Beats me what's going on in the picture. About...2-3 hours maybe?

Concept Tag

Saturday, May 13, 2006 1
Concept tagging has started up again on the polycount forums. "Concept tag" is the term I coined to denote concepts freely malleable by different artists, some images having been worked over by several different artists in succession. It's interesting to see how different people might approach an idea. Here's the concept tag thread on polycount, if you're so inclined. To the left here is the image I just finished... not so much a proper tag as it is a "random seed" drawing, done by compositing a bunch of different images from the thread, and seeing what shapes are suggested out of them. In this case, a mech/landmate. The bright colors are a direct result of the overlays.

Playing with brushes

Tuesday, May 02, 2006 0
Playing with brushes in Painter IX, so while the details are there, the overall composition isn't. Still, it was instructive, hopefully I'll take that newfound familiarity and push it somewhere further.

This was with the "simple water" brush that is the single biggest reason that people hang onto Painter IV--it's actually in Painter IX, but by default it's set to mix additive, instead of the way it did in IV. Really a fun and easy to use brush, it's clear why so many people love to use it.
