Well...


So it's very far from perfect... but I learned a lot from it and I'm sorta over it. So here's a finished version. In a couple days if I'm still pleased then I'll submit it to ynotartblog.blogspot.com

Enjoy!

p.s. Thanks for the help Aaron!

I like it. I've never really tried painting in photoshop. I've done stuff in illustrator but nothing good at all. But i'm a paintbrush in hand sort of a person, i'm just not talented when it comes to computer art.

Looking great. It's come a long way! Nicely done.

I like the final product and the concept. I'm taking a digital painting class this semester and might be asking some help.

Thanks be to ye for the comments.
Blending, huh? You could try the blur tool (to smooth everything together) but that probably won't give you what you're looking for.
I learned something wicked helpful in my figure drawing class in the winter-- the teacher said that the illusion of depth is achieved when the figure's shadows have a good mix of hard and soft edges (i.e. a cast shadow from the arm would have a hard edge, while the roundness of the leg will have a fuzzy edge). Try that here-- set the brush hardness to 0%, and try to pick out a few edges that might be rounder than the deep, hard crevices. Just a thought...

I really like the design.

Do you know about the multiply, color dodge and burn tools found under the brush options? If not, they could give you the last layer of pop you may be looking for.
