    Everyone is entitled to their opinion and everyone is entitled to agree or disagree, but when you give your opinion on someone elses opinion then things start turning strange . Keep it on topic and thats the wips. Its up to spiritdreamer to decide what he wants to see and get out of his posts in the end anyways. I think his work is just fine . It's his signature and you just can't go debating that. Read chapter 2 of "Drawing on the Right side of the Brain", but don't get me wrong, Picasso mastered anatomy before he distorted it.

    Default Nice!

    You are doing some really beautiful stuff. The twist on the traditional sculpts is really interesting. I just mustered up the courage to start posting too.
    Thanks for your post

    Framed World...The figures are from workshops that I participated in over at CG TALK in the Artistic Anatomy Forum..I used oil brushs in the Corel Painter Program to do them..They are done freehand..no traceing or whatever allowed in those workshops...The WIPS for them can be found in the begining of my CG TALK Sketchbook Thread..The link is posted below.
    The Earth is ZBRUSH.
    Just experimenting and practicing while combining things..allows me to learn things that may be useful in other pieces that i've done, and ones I haven't done yet.
    It's just a way of learning,..one of many..

    THOSE are really nice. Very well executed as individual light and anatomy studies. I wish I could paint in 2D like that.
    Not crazy about them all together, but each one is a really nice study.

    Approximately how long does it take you to paint something like that with Painter, and at what res did you do it originally?

    You know there are some much higher res earth textures out there, that are free. The jpg artifacting or low resolution of that earth texture shows up even in these low res screen grabs. Painting over it or not, a higher res earth texture would help in every piece you've put it in.

    Obz..Thanks man..
    The workshops ran for a week, maybe two,I can't remember off hand..the figures took me about a week probably...I usually work at 300 or 400 res
    I ended up doing a bunch of versions with different colors ect. just to practice and experiment with the program..Check them out, lots to choose from.
    I like to push things futher than I should most of the time, but that's a great way to learn..It makes you make mistakes that you can learn from, and gets and keeps you out of your comfort zone...Plus you never know what you might discover in the process,..Keeps the journy interesting and an adventure, instead of a journy that is continuously going over a beaten path that you've already traveled on.
    You wouldn't happen to have a link to that better res Earth that you mentioned would you.. I have a hard time finding things on the computer, ..You seem to find your way around it pretty good...I envey that..

    http://www.google.ca/images?q=earth%20texture&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-USfficial&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi#q=earth+texture&um=1&hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-USfficial&tbs=isch:1,isz:lt,islt:2mp&source=lnt

    It's a search criteria in google, lots of various high res images (be sure to view more than just the first page). There are even some mattes so you could mask the specularity so the sea is shiny but the Sahara is not.

    There is one here of the earth at night, you can identify all of the land masses by the light and electric activity... as well as images of the planet with no clouds, add your own to taste.

    When you say 300 or 400 res, I assume you mean DPI, but on what size canvas? I'm curious what the ultimate pixel dimensions are.
