Petrified by dinyctis Petrified by dinyctis
i havent submitted anything in a while, and im showing you the reason: im learning how to airbrush

the main airbrushing thing is the cape, nevermind the towers, it took me 10 mins to do those, and they only serve to fill up space, dont bother commenting on them, i know they suck, just comment on the cape, if u must.

done with my wacom tablet. no special brushes were used, just the regular round brush with different variations of opacity and roundness (brush dynamics)

for those of you who like my space stuff, dont worry, i will keep doing those, but right now im expanding my graphic skills, and airbrushing takes quite a bit of time

for the cape i used one of the black riders of lord of the rings, and the towers.......i just drew them.

textures by me.

everyone so far has said how wonderfull it is, and yes, i haven't necessarily read all the comments, and yes i am not really an air-brushing person (3dsmax is one of my favs) ...

But here's some Crit.
The black rider character had really nice outlines, but the lighting on the cloak is quite stark, and in places goes to white... which to my eyes makes him look just as stationary as the marble in the background... What i'm saying is the cloak doesn't have the texture of a fabric, it's been appears to have more the radiosity of marble....

I see what you're saying, but I was trying to make this one look like he was made out of stone. Like a sculpture. It was a texturing experiment, as well. I wasnt trying to make them just like in the movies, with the cool dark cloaks and everything, hence the title "petrified."

Thanks for the crit, though. Good looking out :)

this comment applies both on cape and buildings, when you apply the textures, i dont know if you do, but it doesnt look as you seem to take the 3d aspect to your attention. For example look on the cape, it has curves but the texture just look as it doesnt curve with the material it is on, just has a black spot on it and then the texture continues on, i really dont think u understood me but i hope u did :(
