Out There by memod Out There by memod
I am sorry that my paintings keep coming in such long intervals. Haven't found much time for personal art these past months. At least outside of my sketchbook, which is something that I use daily.
Lately I have felt more and more drawn towards traditional paintings. Their look and feel just seems so tangible to me, and it is something that I would like to recreate in my digital work. This piece is definitely in that vein. Do you guys feel like I succeeded?
It is actually based on a small water colour sketch I did, which you can find here: www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbi…

Will try to be faster with my next piece. Meanwhile, I am posting more of my drawings from my sketchbook to facebook, so feel free to add me there, if you would like to see them.

I originally made a little water colour sketch that I used as a starting point and then the rest is all painted in photoshop :)

Thank you! =]

Any tips for getting such a nice traditional effect? I'm using ArtRage to do that, but never succeeded in Photoshop or even Corel Painter.

Hm best is, if you don't think of it as an effect. I didn't use a filter or anything. Instead I looked at a lot of traditional paintings that I liked and tried to understand, how they were painted and how the respective artist placed their brushstrokes, what colours they used and so on. And it also helps if you use some brushes that have a more traditional aesthetic with some irregularity to them. Am still trying to better understand what makes a traditional painting look traditional though! :nod:

I do like the style, and I definitely think you got the acrylic feel on this with the textures. I can almost see the canvas coming through =p. Did you use a different brush? Do you do some traditional painting too?

But but but....it was supposed to feel like oil! D: D:

Haha, nah but I'm glad that it has this traditional touch. I really quitel ike that aesthetic. And yeah I'm using a brush set that definitely has more of a traditional feeling to it, with a bit more tooth. Just a bit hard to control them sometimes :lol:
I'm doing watercolour sketches in my sketchbook, but I'm afraid that's about the extent of my traditional painting so far. But I'd really love to try oil at some point! :nod:

This piece is really great. The texture of the barn looks great. The use of red accents on the boats works. The snow is rather convincing and the reflection is well placed. Also the control of detail across the image is restrained.

Thanks a bunch, Aaron! I'm glad you liked it! Holding back on the detail was actually quite difficult sometimes :D

This is digital? Wow, man, you seem to have perfected how to make digital paintings look "analog". Fantastic work.

And also nice to see signs of life from you! :) :salute:

Haha, thanks man! Yeah, this is digital =] Although I think that the traditional look can still be pushed further.
But eventually I'll just have to paint on canvas! :D
