So after the last digital painting attempt I wasn’t too happy with my use of colour, it didn’t look very convincing to me. So I decided to wind it back a bit and try something that was just black and white but then at the end I decided to just “tint” the image and give it some colour. But working in just black and white was helpful, I think I need to focus on adding details and learning how to create texture because even though I can create shape, surfaces especially large areas look a little flat and boring. I don’t particularly want to create hyper realistic pieces but I would like to have a more “painted” look to it, and after painting two nursery murals with house paint, I’m beginning to think I might actually prefer using real media instead of digital media. but the last time I set up a painting station the cat got into it and I had little footprints everywhere. God knows what would happen if I left paint within reach of our little monsters.

Originally I thought I would do Spiderman, but when I found the city backdrop was going to require a lot of effort I dropped the background, and then thought I’ll just do a head shot and changed it to venom. But one of the problems with photoshop is that there is generally a short cut to everything, the drool was the last touch and instead of “painting” it like the rest I just used blending options to create something that looks like it might be drool, not entirely convinced it was the right choice.

watch this space....... :)
