I just realized that Gary is Geddy Lee which I think also happens to be his real name. :D

Alright, I've avoided posting in this thread for one reason only, because I would not be able to contain myself from doing the following, but after that....

NIPPLE! NIPPLE! YOU CAN SEE NIRAMOUR HAS A NIPPLE! IT'S RIGHT THERE! YOU CAN TELL THE TEMPERATURE BY LOOKING AT HIS NIPPLE! NIPPLE NIPPLE NIPPLE!!!!!

I don't know why I had that compulsion, but, there it is. Anyway, now that I've actually posted, I wanted to thank you so very much Mr. Gunpowder for these excellent and amazing potraits. I can't wait to see what you do for Misaki!

tassels are so in right now.

Hal did say Niramor was androgynous, so a pastie is kind of appropriate

You are most welcome :D

On a sadder note, Lindsay is going to have to wait for hers because I will be off to Mexico for the next week. But I will be doing her painting next, maybee followed by a portrait of timmy. :)


She should be giving a BIG hug to Timmy.

You Continue to impress, MrGunpowder.
Your skill and how rapidly you have come out with these amazes me.
Can I ask what your technique is?
Are these entirely digital or are you doing IRL paint and then scanning and doing a bit of digital work on top of that?

Entirely digita. (Save the planet by being too lazy to scan stuff)

I usually start with a Photoshop sketch, then block in the basic colors of anything organic looking: flesh, clothing, hair and so forth. Then I build props and paint details and more details and so forth. I constantly flip the canvas to keep a fresh look on the painting and I often switch to black and white to make sure everything fits.
Might be a little technical here but that's my day job two so I tend to digress.

These are all very nicely done! I've always had a problem sketching digitally; I always sketch better on paper, take a photo and import it into whatever program I'm using.

I tend to use a limited color palette as well... I have a strong case of R/G blindness, which always leads to fun conversations about why is purple blue.

I do sketch better on paper but I'm trying to fix that by forcing myself to do these lovely exercises. I'm finding that even if sketching is more natural on paper, making corrections to the sketch is very nice on Photoshop. Tweaking angles and creating repetitive pattern in a matter of seconds is really nice.

For the color blindness, I use to have a fellow artist friend who was colorblind. His palettes were always unique. Its like being a Beethoven of visual arts. :D

Sorry I didnt reply sooner, Misaki is AMAZING.

I am NOT an artist, although I do sketch in a fashion sense. I would have NO idea how to do that entirely digitally; it is such a speciality skill. Well done.

Maybe you and I need to have a chat about how to get my work online without resorting to just scanning...lol

The best of my work.. :oops:

A mix of sketch, colored with prismacolour marker, pencil, brush marker, chalk, and a few other things like paint and whatever else worked.. lol.

Nice work Lindsay.

I really get a good sense of the structure and drape of the garments from that.
