the power of digi tweaking

the greatest thing about Photoshop is the ability to effortlessly manipulate your image with sharpen\blur, blending modes, color corrections, layer effects etc.
its also one of the worst things since you have so many options you can easily get lost if you dont have a clear idea in your head and a lot of times its more a matter of happy accidents than actual meaning. and being able to make decisive decisions is a must to be a good artist.

yesterday i finished an image i did as a gift for my 40k hits on my DA page. (OCs belong to

this is how far i got with brush work and some color correction:

and then i pushed it a bit with some compositing magic:
 and this is a re-compositing of the original image i did today. Photoshop magic only - no actual painting...

the thing is, with the awesomeness that is Photoshop i can redo this image in 20 different ways. BUT. i'll have no idea which one is better (ur welcome to give ur input if anyone feels like it).
i still have a long way to go....

monster girl challenge - day 6

spider girl. this time with some added insight:

i've been thinking a lot about choices lately. how an image can change drastically with different color scheme or light sources or line quality. a good artist makes smart and fast and sometimes hard choices to make his idea across as best he can in he shortest time.

a lot of times i have an image in my head but i lack the skill to execute it. the ultimate challenge is trying to find the best ways to get close to that image with the tools that i have. 

first try. i had an image in my head went to my comfort zone in PS but i didnt like how it turned out all:

sometimes when i don't have time or energy to render and i need an image to be powerful i power up the ol' flash and draw the outline with the brush tool. it has an ink quality and flexible line-art that cant be achieved on photoshop. gives an image a certain dramatic feel. here's what i got:

i liked it better but it still needed colors. since this is more of an experimental phase i decided to go for a totally different direction:
i didnt have a clear idea of what i wanted - i just messed around with hue\sat and blending modes until i couldnt tell if something was better or worse then before. i wasn't happy with the end result.

3rd attempt. this time i added a story, which is always a good idea, and kept everything simple and decisive.

 im happy with it :)
