THE ART CENTER / Sharing Ideas And Tips From Artist To Artist
Someone asked a question about the process of painting a character, so I'll take a stab at that one. There are many processes that each have their strengths, but for the sake of learning this is what I'd suggest. This process is based around the way 3d rendering programs work, using separate passes and combining them together for the final effect. First of all, start with a sketch. Pick up the lines as a layer, and switch the layer type to multiply or Gel if you're in Painter. These next steps can almost be done in any order. On a separate layer, paint the occlusion in. Now, on a new layer, paint in a single light source. Here is what the lighting layer and the occlusion layer look like when they're both visible on a blank background. Here's what those layers look like applied over the colors I painted earlier: If you want any more lights in the scene, use a "Screen" layer, which acts as a true additive layer.

'Annabelle Forest' was forced to sleep with 1,800 men by age 18 in Satanic sex cult The daughter of a woman involved in a Satanic sex cult has revealed her evil mother made her sleep with 1,800 men by the time she was 18. The woman, who has called herself Annabelle Forest, was initiated into the sick cult after having to watch her mother perform a sex act on the cult's ringleader Colin Batley at the age of seven. At 11 she was raped twice by the man, and three years later made to take part in group sex with her mother at their home near Llanelli in Wales, where at least two other households on the street took part in cult activity. Jacqueline Marling (left) and Colin Batley (right) systemically sexually abused the girl throughout her childhood. The sick neighbours were jailed in 2011 for their roles in a satanic sex cult in Wales Colin Batley and Jacqueline Marling were jailed for systemically sexually abusing the girl as she was growing up. Snakes would be kept near an 'altar' in his lounge where residents on the quiet cul-de-sac would congregate on Sunday evenings.

Copic Marker Tutorial I by cartoongirl7 on DeviantArt Gurney Journey Excellent Digital Painting Video Tutorial for Beginners If you’re a noob in digital painting and struggling to create your first digital masterpiece, you need a very good video tutorial to get you up to speed fast. Otherwise, you will quickly run into problems and get frustrated fast. I have tried many tutorials on the web but a lot of them assume you already know what settings to use for paint brushes in Photoshop, such as what size, shape, opacity and flow, and how to apply colors, textures and blending to your painting. Other video tutorials were recorded several times faster than normal or recorded without sounds so you wouldn’t really learn from them. This is where I will share one digital painting video tutorial that I found when I was starting that really got me up and painting in no time. I found this in the CGSociety Forum created by Neil Fontaine or “architectus”. Update: Neil has given me permission to upload the video on the web, so now you can view it directly below. Good luck and tell us how you did! Tagged as: Digital Painting

Terra - Process by tsuaii on DeviantArt Be Your Own Boss -By Dan LuVisi I want to tell you guys a story. I've told this journey of mine at several workshops, from Gnomon Workshop, to some colleges, and in Portugal at the Trojan Horse Was a Unicorn event (which I suggest you sign up for this year, as it's fantastic). I'll be giving this speech at OFFF in Barcelona, Spain this year, so please come by if you're a reader of this blog.For those that can't attend, here is Part 1 of this speech. I've been told it's a bit of a lifter for the spirt, and motivational to artists who want to build their own world--something I feel we should be doing more of with the lack of creativity coming out of Hollywood these days. One day I woke up, and I decided I was going to make a book. This wasn't pre-meditated, and I had no idea what that book was. I had just come off a pretty ruthless tour of work, with a client who I'd like to believe could be a perfect dictator. Towards the end of 2008, I took a risk. Let's back up. I'm a child of ADD. But then it hit me:
