I have this poster in my room... XD

And Someone, PLEASE show me how to do digital art? Like, what software do you use? I'm interested with the idea, usually I do traditional art.

Anyhow, this is like an origional photo but with an artist's individual style, I love it, and I LOVE this fantastic, humble, sexy, talented man. Made my day. xxx

Johnny! I love this :) do you paint in Ps or Corel?

I am sick of seeing portraits with flawless complexions and perfect proportions. I think only the best can capture not just the beauty of a character, but the beauty of the flaws as well. You have done that beautifully here, I'm in awe.
AriaAsacura Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2010
I remember watching you paint this on your vid on youtube. I'm still stunned by how absolutely brilliant this is and how detailed it is.

If I get as half as good as this I'll be a happy man, superb.
WilliamsShamir Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2010
wow i'm so flattered that one of my paintings influenced you to buy a tablet
how do you get along with the tablet ?
i remember i had a real hard time doing even straight lines with the tablet when i just got it ...
it takes some getting used to
as for getting better
just practice man ... tell yourself instead "i hope i was now half as good as i will be in 6 months"
that's what i lways tell myself and i'm always trying to get better and better and my ultimate goal is to be able to paint photorealistic from imagination without using references so i have lot of improving to do ... don't know if i'll ever reach that level of insanity but i'll try to get as close as i can ...
thanks for the comment my friend
and keep going and try always to reach that next level
wazza79 Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2010
I'm finding the tablet is quite user friendly. Although I've still got a lot practicing to do with it, I'm especially needing more practice with painting/drawing in general, but I'm loving the challenge of trying to make every painting better than my previous ones.

I think my biggest difficulty at the moment is learning the best way to approach a digital painting i.e. what brushes to use, how the opacity/strength settings affect the brush strokes etc.
WilliamsShamir Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2010
i can tell you my settings
don't know if these are the best settings and it basically depends on your need and this is the general settings i use and sometimes i do change them depending on what i do
but for the most part i use opacity and flow at 100%
and "other dynamics" checked in the brush settings and "opacity" set to pen pressure
for the brush itself i use mainly the regular round one
sometimes the sharp edge and sometimes the soft edge
sometimes i would use scattering too
wazza79 Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2010
thanks for that :-) I'll give this approach a try. I'm going to make a start on a new drawing just now, hopefully have it finished by the weekend!
