  3. Great walk-through, Sam! Do you actually paint like that? or is it more of an example of the thought process that's going on in your mind as you paint?

  4. This is very cool - how do you do it? I've never been to art school so I see artwork like this and have no idea how they made it! Is it photoshop? do you draw with a tablet or scanned in?
    Maybe someday I'll get to colour things like this!

  5. WOW! Sam this is GREAT! I’ve read the post and have to say that THIS IS AWESOME! Thanks! These kinds of posts really help since I’m not in any art schools or programs yet, so thanks again. I’m looking forward to your post about occlusion. This is something I’ve never heard of before (probably because of no schooling).

  6. Ben:
    Usually it's just my thought process, but I'll sometimes do this if I have a very difficult painting where I want to have careful control over everything during the first stages. Or I'll use it with complicated lighting schemes.

  10. that should be "wv", of course. But that mistake gave me the opportunity to have "flami," so it was worth it.

  14. Sam, you always apply "Overlay" and "Multiplay". Or sometimes, nevertheless, paint in the classical method?

  15. Hi Sam,

    It seems you're focussing in on the values in this process. How do you handle something like color temperature in the way you work?

  16. AustinB: Most of my degree is from WorkWithCoolPeople University. But I did go back to school several years ago and got a BFA in animation at BYU.

  17. Hypnotic: I seldom use this method, in fact I usually paint in the classical way, using layers only as needed to apply effects. My preffered method is just painting straight on canvas so I drop the layers down as soon as they've served their purpose.

  18. MichelMaas: That's a huge subject, maybe I'll make a post about it sometime in the future.

    Thanks everyone for the comments!

  19. Holy cats. You don't need MY neophyte input anymore. You've become a rock star. Hmmmm. I like being in control of the elements, too - just don't try it in PHotoshop, running snow leopard, CS4 after you've scanned something with Twain. All you'll end up with is layers and never the layers shall meet.

    I don't think he's got anyone locked up. I think he's a sea captain, and he's listening with a skeptical air -

  21. damn! I thought that was a 3d model when I first saw the thumbnail, and having read the walkthrough I can see why. thanks a lot for this; I never thought to seperate lighting passes in this manner, I can see how it would be really useful in a lot of circumstances!
    cheers.
