All posts in “Digital Painting”

Glowing eye

I was inspired by Alex Cherry’s work so I just had to make my own piece in Photoshop.

Digital realism

I saw a picture by Serge Birault and I just had to draw it as well. I loved the realistic looking hair. I must say my attempt doesn’t do it justice. All done in Adobe Photoshop CS5 on my macbook

Speed painting 1

So the world didnt end after all. So many people actually believed it would end. When I did this speed painting in Photoshop I was just thinking of people living a simple life in Africa, ignorant to the claims that the world would end. To them it was just another day to wake up and enjoy life…

Edited work

Playing around adding color to some linework I bumped into on the internet. Its by QueenIndra I think but I may be mistaken. Done in photoshop over a couple of days because I couldn’t find the time.

Caucasian portrait

Another quick sketch about an hour in photoshop, this time based on a Massive black tutorial. The short clip I had got me this far. Its still messy but a couple of hours work would fix it but I got lazy maybe I’ll get back to it sometime.

Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe, an American author and poet (January 19, 1809 – October 7, 1849). A 40 minute copy sketch I did last week of an old Times magazine with Poe on the cover.

ANC flushes away competition

I’m not politically affiliated but I was inspired to make this quick sketch in photoshop last night after reading how the ANC, despite losing some seats is still doing very well. An obvious play on the toilet dramas with a bit of a Zapiro feel to it.

Tools Photoshop, time 1 hour.

This was based on a grayscale image i came across while looking for some reference material and inspiration. I don’t know who the original author is but i’m more than happy to give credit if anyone can tell me.  I went ahead and touched it up with some colour. Enjoy 🙂
