Re: Calf in the field-Be Creative

Sorry Swampy; not creative tonight. Just doing things that I've already have done in the past.

DCSPecial's Ice4, GREYCstoration, Amphisoft Thread (blended in to reduce some the the curly noise), some white balance adjustments, some selective smudging. Used GIMP's Glass Effects filter (two blended layers with different settings) to create the checkered canvas). Also some bumpmapping.

Re: Calf in the field-Be Creative

lkroll,

On my screen the feet are a bit blown-out but I really, really, really, like the hair on the body, it's awesome, almost real for a young calf but very painterly strokes and swirls. What about just doing some low opacity strands of gray hair in that "wither type" hair on the feet. It's almost a masterpiece.

Re: Calf in the field-Be Creative

lkroll I like the beast, when I looked at this full screen, my room turned GREEN. Did you irradiate that with some plutonium or what???
(I was looking for one of those Smilies with sunglasses on, but couldn't find one, so dizzy will have to do.)
But like I said the calf great.

Peter

Great, Ikroll! Love the "furry" texture.

Perfect Ikroll, now one more twitch for me. On the cows front right foot you can see the black between the cloven hoof. If that was put on the other front foot it would be flawless. Remember, OCD<<<<ADD<<< so it's just little stuff but I pick yours as the bestest of this go round.

Re: Calf in the field-Be Creative

I don't mind at all and I definitely appreciate the criticism. As I've told others before, I'm not an artist, but a renderer depending heavily on the computer (via filters) to do the majority of the work, but I'm getting closer to the art side. I still have to fake it with Artrage since I do not have a Wacom. I really have my heart set on a Cintiq, but I still am in desperate need of a car; priorities first unfortunately.

lkroll,
You are here a bunch and your work is consistent and shows great potential.
Email me direct and when I get back off of location I have an old Wacom 4x5 tablet. Small but still works great. It's USB. If you want it, it's yours.

I cant speak for Ikroll but that is a very sweet thing of you to do. May you be rewarded back 10 fold
