    Hi to All__I"m very happy with the results of this photo/painting of a biker. I use the 3S formula___simple, sharp and saleable.

    your comments are welcome____MH

    Very nice, crisp and bright.

    I don't think I've ever seen you do something in this style, I like it.

    The only thing that seems distracting are the bare arms, they seem thick to me. JMHO

      Except for the flat perspective noted by others, I really like this effect. Is there a tutorial available for this technique? Thanks.

        The Chips theme song is playing in my head...

        This is a good example of why art teachers always tell students to paint from real life whenever possible, rather than using photos as their only reference...the camera lens has flattened the perspective and given an unrealistic look to the man's arms. There needs to be a great deal more foreshortening in order to give the image the proper other words, his torso and head should be made smaller and hands larger.

        I like the reflections on the bike and the technique you used really accentuates those. It would be interesting to see those reflections repeated in the man's sunglasses as well.

          Pavel Novikov - Reverse Engineer Technique
          by oneredpanther
          Goddamn it. I never thought I'd do one of these. I almost loathe myself for posting a "demystification of..." thread but Pavel Novikov's technique has been mystifying me for about a year now and despite repeated attempts to understand it, I cannot.

          His Flickr stream notes that...

          Impressionist: Elin
          by Axleuk
          This is an area that i am in total awe of. After having the pleasure of viewing so many fantstic examples of varying styles, i decided it was time to my hand at impressionist.

          It comes as no suprise that i turn to Master Trimoon's tutorial for this example, but as a first attempt of course...

          Animated stills
          by Doug Nelson
          I just finished watching an episode of one of my favorite shows (Modern Marvels) and it occurred to me that I had no idea how they managed some of their animated still effects. It's obvious that selected areas are placed on different layers and moved at different speeds, that can be done with many apps...
