painting video finished image by calisto-lynn painting video finished image by calisto-lynn
here is a finished image from a video demonstration i posted earlier today.
as i allready stated in my :bulletblue:journal where all the videos are situated i edited some things on this picture.

i cropped the background a bit, placed lara in the center, fixed some anatomical mistakes and drew winchester rifle from reference.
i also worked a bit more on the ground and i added some stone faces and ruins in the back as well.
special thanks to my husband :iconnebezial: for pointing up my mistakes and helping me to solve them.
and thanks to all for viewing :)

thank you so much :) im still developing my style tho :) i love the painterly style but i love the comic book and cartoony feeling to it as well :)

:D That's what drew me to Stjepan!! I saw his illustrations here on deviantart and saw a comic book cover ( a Witchblade trade paperback)that had an image I recognised and began reading:D. But the painterly, comic book/cartoony feel of the style is perfect for depicting strong women (e.g. Sara Pezzini and Lara Croft)and attractive men :P Which seems to be a recurring thing with comic book art.... the women either look too manly or the men look grossly unattractive.... Anyway I'll be very interested to see how your style develops and what you stick with!! :D

This is so perfect. I love Lara Croft :D
I wish I could draw like you.. I have problems with the anatomy! Mostly with the shoulders, arms, legs and hips and not to forget fingers. And everytime I try to draw, I just fail :(
It's really hard for me to draw my own imagination. I just can draw sth when there is a pic in front of me *sigh*

dont worry about it, practice makes perfect if you take a look at my pieces from 6 years ago you will notice that i wasnt particulary good at anatomy either :) the key is to draw alot and draw every day as much as you can. and you will get better.

You have indeed stunning details and eye for great lights and colours, great anatomy.
But aren't you taking the longest way to paint? It may be your traditional-like style, with redrawing things over and over from the beginning. You took so much time on the background, which indeed have many amazing details, but what about the rest? It seems ineffective to work like that. You textured it so many times, and still there are many thick and blurry strokes that make the final look go down...
In my opinion, if the lineart would be redone in the beginning to be clean and "simple", then if you put some flat colours on it, then shadows, lights, textures, then drawing over the lineart (or deleting its layer and touch up the picture without it) to add more details and then maybe some minor fixing. Why not? Why this way? To me it looks like a lot of redundant work, which could have been done much easier way.
But no offence, ok? I'm impossibly far from what you can do now. But I watched the tutorial, and I could not help but think: "Why is that taking so long? Why so complicatedly?"

i dont think its complicated at all, it is in the end very simple, its your own choice if you want to make a detailed lineart or not. i usually dont make a lineart at all, instead i directly work with color planes, but i sketched something to at least show you a glimpse of what the picture will look like in the end. or if you want to be extra carefull with it and put colors below and color the lineart and work with how many layers you need. i prefer to work this way because its most fun for me. i work a bit on the face, then i work a bit on the background, and its never monotonous.and i dont think i worked on the background very long it took overall an hour and a half roughly to complete it. i did this as a simple demonstration of the technique and brush making not the teaching of painting itself. who would want to watch a 6 hours long tutorial :P i sure wouldnt no matter how perfect the picture would turn out to be.

simple answer here------wait for it--- because its a tutorial and it was meant to show as many of the techniques we ueually use as possible

thats all this is, a technique demonstraation, if she was to do it the fast way it would have made things that much more difficult to explain-----tooo every---single --person trust me i was there onece, i made a tut where i went too fast, and ended up killing myself with questions on the stuff i would consider redundant
