hide



here is my hide painting... its really more about the painting and trying to learn to paint on the computer than the concept however the idea behind it is that she is hiding her eyes behind her glasses...
you wouldnt believe how people think you cant see them just because they are wearing sunglasses(I had many strange moments when i worked at hershey park because of this.. lol)

the technique was using a warm under painting and a cool over painting and then using layer masks to "scratch" it off... its similar to a packaging tape technique that I learned in Media Experimentation...I had fun i think

I used an adorable photo from blackpillow.deviantart.com for refference...
enjoy~

Really cool. I think that by using the warm "under-painting" it really makes your figure luminous.

Good, the idea and the technique too

Hmm, I hadn't heard of the packing-tape technique. I'm going to look into it. I like the way you used digital techniques to emulate natural media.

Strong painting! Looking forward to more.

Beautifully done! It really looks like a non digital painting. I've never heard of the packaging tap thing either, sounds interesting...

I used to work at HersheyPark too, years ago...at a lemonade stand by the Conestoga Wagon :)
