Re: Animals in Oil

Hi Rab3rd mixed feelings on these the dog seems maybe a bit too soft , and the eyes too prominent, as they are with the cats, but the difference being i think they work very well with the cats and is by far the better of the two and i really like it , ( there again i am a cat person ) which software do you use i guess painter ?

Re: Animals in Oil

I gotta agree with Palms. Too much contrast in soft and hard techniques.

Re: Animals in Oil

Thanks, for the comments. Really just trying to develope my own "style" if you will. On the very steep part of the learning curve. Palms I use PSCS2.

Rab3rd do you use seperate layers ? that way if you do the eyes on a seperate layer you can reduce opacity, or use blendmodes etc. Just a thought

Re: Animals in Oil

If I feel like spending the time I do, but on these I didnt. They were just quick works to kill a little time. Here are a couple more....

Both are nice Rab3rd, know what you mean about the time thing, only problem is when i do quick ones they are usually the better ones and i end up wishing i had used layers

Smudging is a tough skill to master. You're doing a fine job climbing the learning curve. I much prefer this interpretation that includes a little detail.

While it appears you like using animals as subjects (nothing wrong with that), try applying your technique on a couple kid closeups. I'll bet moms, grandmas, etc. would gush with delight.
