People Portraits by dustsplat People Portraits by dustsplat

 I've been doing a bunch of portrait studies of people around me recently trying to streamline my process and trying out  palettes I'm not necessarily comfortable with.  An individual and larger size version of each portrait can be seen on my cghub page as well as my blog.  I was able to save some process shots if anyone is interested.  

Here are the links

Every time I see these I feel like I'm looking at a digital VampHungerStrike piece cos of the color scheme as whole. But with jucier edges...

seeing the brief steps on your blog really baffles me on where to even begin on something like that.
Great job.

Hahhahahaa. Lolz!

   You must do one of Pier! 

I was gona ask, do u tablet or cintiq? 
    I tried a 300 dollar droid tablet with sketch book pro app, and its like mini cintiq but easier to hold.

This guy I met, who is art directing at blizzard, let me try his tablet with sketchbook pro from autodesk. 

  And in like 5 minutes of messing around, of course I had no time to see how well that setup handles digital finished paintings, but the sketch that I made gave me a smile because it was just like using a pencil on paper, and I miss that in  tablet. 

Eventhough Iain Mccaig once said that when painting with a tablet its like painting with ur MIND! and not ur hands... I still kinda miss seeing my hands in there lolz. 

   So instead of buying a full on cintiq I think getting the driod setup. Must read reviews.  Will check out the IpadAir, but 300 dollar driod looks nicer compare to 800 IpadAir, lolz. 

Man... I should of spent time and participated in LoL art contest, I would of had a cintiq by now... Oh well. 


How Long did it take u to adjust to the cintiq's gap of screen and pen?   
  And do u have a cintiq table arm, or single motion screen arm? because I cant imagine someone leaning over to its conventional table stand.

i think the "perfect" tool for on-the-go painting isnt out there yet. That wacom one was close but i heard there were to many problems. I guess for now we just make do with what we can with what we really need. 

I know what you mean about the hands. Sometimes for me though having my hands out of the way kinda helps.

Adjusting the cintiq gap takes like 2 seconds.  I have one of those arms at work,  Theyr're pretty awesome.  A real space saver.  At home i still just use a tablet, its more than enough

I sat down with each person for a little photoshoot to get goo dlighting. A live model wouldve been awesome but me and my co workers schedules arent flexible enough for me to be able to do that

Thank you for your info.
Even when I ask friends to be a model - it is soooo hard to get them not to move (some just CAN'T!) :no:

It helps if you put on a movie(s) for them to watch. Some of my friends do that when they have models sitting for them :)

Incredible light and shading!

I find it really telling how many people are commenting on "diversity" when I've literally never seen that on any piece with only white people.  And I look at thousands of images a week.

Really like how you use the colors and the values for your digital paintings and that you can tell that each person is unique from each other especially with the expressions they're making.

They're absolutely amazing. I'm trying to paint a self-portrait and I am having a hell of a time trying to get everything down. How much time did you spend on each of these (individually)?
