    Challenge #55 - David vs Goliath

    Yes, you can just see the corner of the book in the dark area, so it's like a spotlight effect. Nice concept with the words, I like it.

    Forum Features Photoshop Gurus New Forum Software - Report Issues Here

    Hey, it's a tiny thing, but I just spotted that the mouseover text on the Painting and Drawing forum refers to something that has had its name changed - the "show board" no longer appears. I checked the others and also found that a link in the mouseover text for the General Photoshop Board...

    Another Inktober that I was quite pleased with, tapping into my hobby of drawing existing characters from photos.

    Forum Features Photoshop Gurus New Forum Software - Report Issues Here

    Thanks Admin, it's all looking a but cleaner and more functional - I like that the preview post system doesn't load a whole new page anymore, for starters. My initial thoughts after a quick browse around: I notice that images are now appearing as tiny thumbnails inline on posts, instead of the...

    So I've been doing Inktober every day this month using my new Autodesk Sketchbook program. I'll not spam the forum with all of them, just wanted to show this one as my favourite so far. The prompt was "Sword", of course.

    Did you use the texture brush for the highlight rather than the soft brush?

    Still Life Digital Painting (study)

    Ahaaa! I completely get it now - the stupid thing is I actually did know all of that, but just reading it I couldn't visualise the steps taken within PS, or put it all together into a process, so it seemed like some technique that was new and unheard of to me. My strange brain thanks you for...

    Still Life Digital Painting (study)

    Thanks for the run down so far Sam - really interesting to see how your techniques differ vastly from mine, for one thing! Probably because we use different software, I guess. I'm a little lost already though - again different software and different versions of PS are mostly to blame I think...

    Still Life Digital Painting (study)

    Windows 10 has a built in screen recorder for gaming, the game bar, called up with Win-G, which I have tested with my painting software (you just have to tell the screen recorder that your painting program is a 'game'). It records in real time, but if you have separate video editing software you...

    Still Life Digital Painting (study)

    Great work! The only thing I would say is that where the apple meets the surface it's sitting on, it suddenly looks less real, like it's got no weight, or isn't interacting with the surface. Perhaps a tiny amount more shadow on the apple itself here would help it look like it's actually sitting...

    The Tiger

    This is looking nice, good job so far. :) Some things to consider, moving forward: I agree with others that the large area of black around the mouth is not quite right. Looking at a few photos of tigers, this black area is partially fleshy as well as furry, and it's usually coated in the...

    Who uses Gimp?

    I gave gimp a brief try when I found I would need a replacement for my old photoshop CS2. It seems to do most things PS does, in much the same way, but as a digital painter I found it very disappointing. There is a lot of cursor lag between your strokes on the tablet and what happens on screen...

    I seem to have a strange weed spreading in my patch, no idea what they are... Think I'll try and dig them out in the morning, but now it's time to go and watch the meteor shower!
