Hi Patrick, really glad you think so thanks pal! Well I think, now that Im a little more familiar with those amazing digital painting techniques, hopefully I can now concentrate a little more on the subject matter and the basics of my paintings, what hopefully will improve my work a little in future
Hi, Uwe! You're certainly using the digital medium to its fullest advantage now. Painter seems like a good fit with you - the layering and textures look grand.
Hi Kirsi well, you know I do illustrations for storybooks as well as the normal cover illus, so this will be no problem for me. And you also know this style thing isnt really my cup of tea, there are to many things and techniques to explore for me that I currently cant go for a specific style maybe it will come with the years, maybe not. So if I achieve another style/technique, which may look like the storybook illus, well that just makes my bandwidth a little richer . However it is soooo much fun using those brushes (sure with some self made tweaks), really to much fun to make not more in this technique Im glad you think I should go on as well, your opinion means a lot to me. Thanks for answering my question
Absolutely you should continue with Painter's watercolours. - You already master the traditional technique in painting so well that it can only get better from now on =D - The only thing what might be a problem with that medium is that the style can easily look illustration like in story-books or so, you know? But if that's the goal, then it's cool. But it's obvious that those watercolours bring beautiful textures and natural roughness to the pic unlike smooth and highly detailed "normal" digital painting.
Hi Kirsi, yes again those watercolors (well actually just pixels but hey we live in a digital world), so it seems you like this style, do you think I should do more in this technique??? Would be really interested what you think
Wow, I didn't notice this before! Excellent painting Uwe! So, watercolours again, huh? It suit you very well, love the brown earthly tones
Thanks so much Bill, glad you like. Man you new pieces are awesome, sorry didnt find the time to comment on all of them yet, but be sure I saw them all, really impressive stuff you do lately!!!!
Soooo true Heiko, if I only had the time to finish all the ideas, concepts and sketches laying around on my hardrive and, or in my desk drawer . Currently I need a break from the commissions and decided to work out some character concepts, less to get them finished than more to practice a little with different painter techniques than the usual one I use. I got some interesting results while testing different techniques lately. So most of my upcoming free pieces are more concepts than actually worked out paintings, but it is so much fun to work fast and loose
Thanks for the comment my friend!
I agree with James Uwe, the textures are beautifully done!
Nice picture Uwe,I like the title and the brown wood textures including the roots,the creature has a interesting facial expression refer to the worm,sometimes a harddrive is like a casket with many beautiful things
Thanks so much Scott. As already said the sketch last a long, long time now on my harddrive and it really had to be done now. So many things to do and so less time. Glad you like the piece!
Thanks again Rita, your comments are always a gift to me (what would this gallery be without you, you are truly the spirit of Epilogue!) Thanks for all my dear friend!!!!
Hi James, thanks for stopping by as already explained to Malcom, I got the textures using those watercolors in Painter they are unbelievable fantastic and act really like real color. I never will understand how people are able to program such stunning software which simulates natural media that well (umm, on the other hand I never will understand computers in general lol). Thanks for the comment my friend!
Thanks so much Malcolm, the sketch for this piece last a very long time on my harddrive, now as I currently try other techniques in Painter (the digital paint program I mostly work with) I thought I would be a good idea to finish this piece. Glad you like the textures they mostly happen by accident using the Painter watercolors, think there will be more pieces like that in future, maybe not the subject matter but I definitely will do more using this technique. Still playing around with digital media and still not sure in which direction I will go concerning style and technique but oh well, I have time finding my own style, at the moment it is far to interesting trying new things digitally so that at the moment I dont want to limit myself to a specific style or something like that.
Thanks for stopping by and commenting this piece, you know Im a big fan of your work!
A quite imaginative painting Uwe, and as always your rendering is very well done. A very interesting piece.
Again a wonderful work Uwe, love the light.
Ah, marvellous, Uwe, your textures are stunning!
Another wonderful picture. I love the background texture and the limited colour scheme. I also enjoy the sense of humour.
