this is my fave scout fanart ever. its just perfect! I wish I were better at expressing my love for something. first off the colour style is just so smooth and easy on the eye, his cheeky expression is just gorgeous and the liquid is so believable! I adore this, thank you for making it!
Woo, a scout! Oh well. I like this piece, like always, and man, thats some nice liquid stuff there, the sweat, the crit-a-cola, the blood. The crit-a-cola itself looks amazing, almost like you copypasted it from a screenshot. Still, for some reason, I can't really get the action the pic probably has to show. Im almost sure it's because of the background, but well, on the other hand this piece would make a good "just an advertisement for the crit-a-cola"-one. One more thing is the hand. Unlike your other drawings it doesn't look as 3D as some other stuff. And last but not least his face - it's wonderful, it's wellmade, but c'mon! That's not the real scout we're talking about. We all know the scout is a little,annoying asshole-moron. I still like this piece.
And WHAT? You shocked me once more! First, the fact that you used to use a mouse, and now you tell me you made this in MyPaint? Man! I can almost promise you, that you would've only needed 6 hours if you used SAI/PS. But I don't know if getting into another drawing program is worth it (well, HELL, it is!).
Now that I know you use MyPaint, a making-of-video of some drawing of you would be quite interesting!
It's funny how you kinda described all my thoughts about this piece. I too think it looks like an ad but then i got lazy and didn't feel like adding text to it. At first it was supposed to be action filled picture because it had a Pyro in it but, ...yeah. The 3D thing i was not aware of at all and i don't see any difference compared to other of my doodlings. Maybe the lack of dimensions in this one is because of the absence of rivaling colors in the shading....? Scout is not his usual self but i think he still has that annoying glint in his eye. Yeah, I used to draw everything w/ a mouse until the Engie-cowboy-llama picture. Do you really recommend SAI? What kind of pros and cons does it have? MyPaint video sounds fun but i don't have any programs to run or edit it. Thanks for all the feedback and tips! I love reading long comments! <3
I'm doing my best to please you with my long comments, just keep me busy with material, darl.
The lack of dimensions may really be the effect I tried to find, the thing that made me feel like it's not "as" 3D.
MyPaint video - fraps? I heard it's freeware. Also: A livestream? But well, maybe not a 12 hour livestream, tho.
I never used SAI myself, I just switched from Adobe PS Elements 5 to PS 5 (not that Im that big of an artist), I just watched people use SAI on livestreams and want to try it out too. They say it's easy to get into, has a neat arrangement, all this stuff, and I definately think it's easier to do works like yours with it than with MyPaint. (Also thanks for the long answers!)
well, when i started using it i kinda picked a few brushes and sticked with them. i use mainly the "blend and paint -brush" (version 9). experiment what works for you the best. i didn't use any layers for the longest time but they do help a lot. if you know all the keys by heart you are pretty much set
Bah daaaaaaamn! I truley love it! <33 I tell you, I can imagie you working for valve...Seriously. This is so damn amazing! The blood is great made and so with the drink! and 12 hours? thats pretty short time! <3 DAMN! <3
