photoshop? hmm… well, very well painted anyways… the thing why I dont much like computer painted pictures is the plastic-flat-look of them…this is otherwise great picture, but photoshop is ruining it.
try painter, if you have to paint with computer…

who is jessica alba?

p.s. i like that thick line of back…

well… I looked at the picture you linked… I think Snailroses picture is better. the one “Raphael” did looks like a photograph… I dont see ANY point on that… if he didn’t use photograph as a guide, maybe then I could say “wow”… but … I dunno.
I want to see the paint on painting. I want to see the process of making, you know… that’s why nothing beats seeing a real painting, up in close.

lastly, I would like to point out, that I also hate airbrush pictures. :slight_smile:

Hey all…Thanks for your comments

I couldn’t agree more…
Computer art has its own unique style to it, which i happen to find very expressive in it’s self, but there is no replacing traditonal media…
I took a look at you site, coffee stories,
damn that is great work…

I understand that many of us have talents beyond Blender, and I must say your art is very impressive, and please dont take offense, but isn’t this a forum for art done in Blender or atleast a portion done in Blender. I have TONS of art done in PhotoShop is it O.K. to post it here? Just wondering, Nice work Snailrose :slight_smile:

u dont?
u said computer paintings look flat and plastic… the point of that picture is to show u how not flat and not plastic that looks :wink:
whats wrong with realism? its realism in this day and age that most computer artists strive for, especially 3d artists… should we stop cuase theres no point to it ? :wink: hehe

heh… ok… but the thing I liked in snailroses pic is the brush-trail, or how should I say it… you can see how it’s painted. the only thing wrong with it is , that it’s flat, there is no impasto. that can only be achieved (kind of) in “Painter”. which is a pretty cool program btw.

nothing wrong with realism. I always like realism, real life consepts and scenes … but I have never quite understood why so many artists thrieve for photorealism, in painting, or computer arts. kills the creativity.

and you don’t need to stop in my account :slight_smile: but don’t expect me to join in… I have done two photorealistic paintings in my life, from photographs (portraits). that’s enough.

This raphael feller admits outright on his site that these are all copies of photographs. I assume he means that he had the photo in a window next to the one he drew in… but in all honesty I don’t see the point of that really. Digitally hand drawing a copy of a photograph, seems like such a waste of time.

Snailrose: I like yours better, at least you can see your hand in it. Good one… I think her eyes are a bit bigger IRL

please, check out the rest of his pics on the forum, he has some absolutely stunning totally original peices as well!.. digitally copying from a photo is good practice, how else would u learn better? =D raph rocks…

snailrose rocks too! :wink: i wish i could paint that good on the comp =\
