Castiel (Digital Painting- Briana Newcomb) by intheairawayfromlove Castiel (Digital Painting- Briana Newcomb) by intheairawayfromlove
The original photo is from Google. I used it as a reference for a digital painting. I'm trying to further myself to learn how to freehand.

Love! Love! Love! Oh my God, if I had any art skills like this, I'd paint a human sized whoever I like and hang it in my room. I don't care if it's creepy, if I can paint, I will paint what I wish. THIS IS GREAT. I thought it some sort of photo manipulation at first and i had to check the tags but it wasn't :0 Outstanding job!

I'm sorry so many people are bothering you about this. I think this painting is beautiful and if you have good vision, you can obviously tell it's a painting. Very well done. I think, if you want to get people to stop pestering you about if you stole it or not, maybe record your screen while you paint and post it to youtube. Hopefully that will help. :)

Despite what others are saying, I myself can tell that this is definitely painted. I think that my personal favorite parts is the way that you painted his hair and his lips.

Don't let what others are saying get you down; I've seen some of your other paintings, and you really have some talent!! :) Keep working hard!

I hate to be "that guy" but...

I'm an upper quarter PTI student who has already passed this class and I believe you've misinterpreted the teachings of this class or PTI in general.

Digital Imaging (the class we were taught this from) is meant to be a basic building block of Photoshop. We are supposed to learn the basic tools and features within a rather huge and diverse program. With that being said, the digital painting assignment was meant to be done with separate brushes, but due to teacher/class changes it was changed to the mixing brush in order to save time. (We go go to class for 7 quarters, each quarter is only 3 months.) In other words, the mixer brush is taught to show use how we can sample all of our layers colors to achieve a 'painted effect'. However, like all teaching, we aren't supposed to just learn that and stop, no, we're supposed to expand on what we learned using research, practice, and knowledge of the programs. In technical terms, this is more of a Digital Tracing, since you don't really draw much of it because you just sample the basic shapes and colors from the original photo.

Not trying to fight about it, but I don't want my school to be discredited by ways others interpret teachings.

Thanks!

Um dude, I'm really sorry to do this, and I'm absolutely not trying to be mean, but I'm afraid you may have just downloaded this wushimoo.files.wordpress.com/2… image and placed a "painting" filter over it. :hmm: I'm sorry, it's just far too exact to the original image to be a copy.

Yes I have seen your 'work in progress' deviation. I'm sorry, I'm not convinced that you didn't just start with the whole image, erase it in stages, take screen shots and then play them together in reverse. :shrug: Of course, if you could provide like a screen capture video or something which shows you actually creating one of these from bare sketch beginnings to final product, I'll humbly withdraw all of this! :)

I do genuinely apologize for being ignorant about what you guys have said to me. I can easily show you how i create my digital paintings and how I was taught in school. I'm trying to further myself and get better so I can free hand everything, you know? So I do apologize.

Do you honestly expect people to believe that you drew that, when your signature looks like it was drawn with a track pad? Even in your "process gif" you can see the original photo on the layer underneath and you just revealing it on top of it. It looks like you just applied Photoshop's Oil Paint filter to a photo you found on Google in every piece in your gallery.

Like i said before, I will say again.

Do you want me to walk you through my process? I don't use painting filters. I open the image in photoshop, put a texture filter on to give it a canvas look. I choose a brush, called the mixer brush tool. Change the setting to wet and sample all the layers. Doing this causes the picture when you begin to paint a painted look. I eyedrop every single color in the photo and begin painting. That's my process. I spent countless hours making paintings like this and I've never even heard of a painting fliter before!

I'm a graphic designer who goes to PTI, or pittsburgh technical institute. In my second semester, they teach us how to make digital paintings. That was their teaching process, and that's what i've been doing for the past year. If other people frown upon the way they do paintings, then fine. But that's how I learned, and that's what I'll always do.

So you're just tracing it, which isn't any better than adding an oil paint filter and adding your signature.

Where do you want people to learn how to draw then? You're telling me you have never traced/gridded/whatever a single thing in your entire life? You're saying that every artist out there just magically knows how to draw absolutely everything? Haha. No.

CrossMyDNA Featured By Owner May 6, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I never said I expected people to magically know how to draw absolutely everything. The artist changed the "description" part of this to say that she used this technique as a way of learning, whereas before it made it seem like it was done entirely freehand with no reference. I have nothing against using tracing as a way of teaching yourself how to draw, just with doing so and making it seem like it was all your own work.

My mistake...it's just the line "so you're just tracing it, which isn't any better than..." sort of got to me, since it's that and gridding is the main this I learned how to draw with :') But yeah, doing it and not acknowledging it is wrong.

Alright, whatever makes you happy, you think whatever you want. All i know is that I spent 6 hours on this painting yesterday. My hand was cramped up because it's pretty damn hard to paint with a macbook pro trackpad. Think whatever you want, just stop with the negativity. Honestly, it's kind of a drag.

It doesn't make me happy, because you're giving digital artists a bad name. Enough people already think digital art is a joke and "not real art," and you're just confirming that. Your professors should have known better than to have taught you a cheap way of creating "digital paintings," no matter how long it takes you to do.
