a little saturated but I am really enjoying painting him.

I spent a little longer on this one. around 8 hours altogether I would
say. possibly one of my best portraits.

How could I have not known this existed for TWO WHOLE YEARS!?!?!?!?! Pluck me fucken eyes out, the skills I tell you!!! You have earned another watcher. 0w0 b
(I'm too scared to look at the rest of your gallery... might have to have the ambulance waiting on the phone.....)
You are more than welcome, Kenway is undoubtedly the best AC mainy ever!!!!! *A* I actually liked using him, he was lovable as a character as opposed to the rest who only look cool because of their clothes. : P (which translates to them being kinda shallow imo, despite having history on their side lol)
I'll just rave on FOREVER so feel free to tell me to shut up - I know what it's like to have lots of stuff to do and I don't want to add to your workload. (but here I am!!! haha, sowwy, I'll just go scribble for a bit)
Yeah I totally agree. Whilst I think Ezio had a lot of charismatic charm and I did love him dearly, there was something
more human about Edward. A far more balanced approach to a protagonist than some of the
other Assassin's if you ask me. It was easier to relate personally to his motivations too, some of the uglier sides of human nature as opposed
to a revenge fuelled tale of righteous justice. He was flawed and greedy but well intentioned and humoured and he had a nice, paced character
growth. It helped enormously that the supporting cast was top notch. All in all, Black Flag was a very well written AC.
Fell free to rant way, I'm the same once I get going too!
SHUT THE FUUUUCK UP!
I know PS can give some beautiful texture when you blend as well.
Amazing work! I just love your gallery!
full adobe package, nor is it up to date I will have to look at "acquiring" a proper CS at some point
though. Thanks for checking out my gallery by the way
since I've used it for some realisms myself, and have other friends
who use it for that as well! Its a glorious program haha!
Ohhhh did you hear that Adobe has been giving out the full version
of PS CS2? Its also a very good one to use! I have PS CS3, and
you can still blend nicely with that as well
(I just adjust the smudge tool so it smudges nicely)
And hey, you bet! Your gallery is wonderful!
brush is very large. I will keep my eyes peeled for that. I used to have CS2 on my
laptop but it died a very sorry death
unless you manipulate the brush dynamics!
If you add a scatter to the brush dynamics when you
have the smudge tool selected, and less of a
count under scatter, as well as somewhere around 25 for
spacing, you can get some nice ultra smooth blending.
As well as if you add some opacity dynamics.
(I'd play around with that, cause it can make some nice
and different styles of blending! Also, using different styles of
brushes, other than just a normal circle, can make a lot of
Awww, I hate when that happens! I had to spend most
of my money recently on a new laptop > o > ug!
haha hey no problem! I hope you the best of luck with everything!
Great work ... I really like colors and composition !
