If I were a smart man I might start asking for money  tongue
KKBF - this was kinda why I wanted to commune via email, to prevent any kinda onslaught. Never mind.  smile

jle1993 - see my email, oh and also I fogot to add to that: let me know which style you prefer. I do B+W anime style (as in this thread) or cartoony coloured style (as in my fanfic). Both are good. Don't worry about my apparent petulance - I'll do it for you.
But never again!  tongue Grr!

And to anyone else looking to get some work done; I'm booked up solid now so it'd have to be lubricated by some dollar signs. Not many, mind, but I am temporarily out of work at this juncture so I'm feelin' the lion's share of my time ought to be spent fixin' to pay my rent. Hate to get all mercenary on ya, but that is what I am after all.
I'm not being a bastard mind, it's just quality work don't come fallin' out of me. 'Specially not this time of year when it's all hot and muggy and my hands get sweaty as hell... ugh - I hate summer. I'm such a winter person... I know it sounds weird but I absolutely THRIVE in the cold.

Ramble ramble...

Drop me a line, jle1993.

I done a handful of pics for jle1993's fanfic.
Here's one of them. To see the rest, and to understand the context, you'll need to read it.
There, free plug.



Anyone else looking to get some work done from me might have to lubricate me with some dollar signs 'cause this fanart is starting to take up a fair slab of my time.
Not that my time is particularly valuable, I just have an itch to be watching TV... and my drawing hand does tend to ache a bit after a while.

No masturbation jokes about that, I already thought of them.

Yeh. Sometimes they just work. That one in particular fell together quite organically and took on a life of its own. That's what really great pictures do. The rest are always hit and miss, but when you stumble into one that starts virtually drawing itself then there's no way you can possibly muck it up.
Ahh. I am content.

Okay all you smelly bastards, this here is my very first attempt at photoshop, so be nice. I took the first image in this thread and set about colouring it. Turned out to be the most painstaking motherf**ker of a job... euuugh... I haven't done Bender yet, I may not - he is even more intricate, but here's Fry and Leela.
You may say it would have been wise to pick something a little simpler to cut my teeth on... and you may be right. I, however, am a stupid stupid man.



EDIT: Okay, now I can see a distinct drop in image quality. Note to self - don't save as a JPEG. But still, you get the idea.

And also, here's something less complicated I threw together this morning. It's to illustrate an upcoming scene in my current fanfic. The planet I used is Venus (NASA photo), and the ship is from a frame-grab.

The statue of me needs to be life-sized. And by life-sized, I mean a kilometre high. And by a kilometre, I mean THREE kilometres.

Ahh, they're probably not as good as they could be, but as first attempts with an unfamiliar program (and noting the complexity of the source material), I'd say it's not bad. But wait 'til I start learning how to REALLY use photoshop!

There are a great many tools to master. It requires patience and finnese - both of which I have very little of... I'm the kind of guy who tends to belt things with a rock if they don't work straight away.
I guess this is an opportunity to develop as a person, because I don't have any rocks on hand.

To Dudeman aka coldangel:

Both pics are bitching good.  I wish I had some artistic ability, but I don't.

You obviously do have artistic ability.  If this is therapy for you dealing with life's twists and turns, then your therapy is bringing joy to countless others.

i have a question, have you written fanfics before ralph?

Coldangel: a couple of tips if you’re going to get stuck in with Photoshop.
1) If you don’t have one, think about getting a graphics tablet. Even if it’s only a small A6 size: making selections etc. with a mouse or touch pad is bad for your sanity.
2) For composite pics, try using layer masks instead of selections. Masks are completely reversible (as long as you save your project in layer form). If you need details, just say.

Thanks Farnsworth.  smile

For your first point, I'd love to get one of those things, but it'll be a some time before I have enough money... and when I do I'd probably be more inclined to spend it on a new computer - the one I'm using now is seven kinds of shit. But good point - using a mouse is a bit dicey; I'm just lucky to have an optical mouse for a bit of precision, if I had a ball mouse it'd be all over red rover.

For your second point... I have no idea what you were talking about there...  tongue Unfamiliar terms. What is a composite pic and what is a layer mask?

Yowza! Very nice... you got a far better result than I did..
Now if you'll excuse me, I have a sketch pad to burn. Plus some computer files to delete.

Composite: your second pic is a composite of Venus (background pic) and the PE ship (foreground pic).

To use a layer mask:
1) Open the background pic in Photoshop.
2) Open the foreground pic: it appears in a new window.
3) Using the Move tool (4-way arrow, top of tool palette), click and drag the foreground image over to the background. It will appear as a new layer in the Layers palette.
4) At the bottom of the Layers palette is a rectangular icon with a circle in it: click, and a white block should appear next to the thumbnail of the foreground.
5) Select the paintbrush and foreground colour (black), and paint over parts of the image you want to remove. If something you want to keep disappears, switch to white and paint over again: it will come back (just make sure you have the mask selected, and not the thumbnail).

If you save in layer form, you can tweak the mask as much as you like: zoom in close and use a small brush to add/remove any small specks on the edge of the selection.

Awww, thanks Corvus. When I get a chance I'll try to do Bender and add him to that.

Farnsworth, that is at the same time fascinating and bewildering. I shall look into it presently. Thanks for the pointers, dude.

Whooo, go paint shop/photoshop!    big grin

Very fine results, congrats coldangel! I do like the shading, btw, took me years to get to that point... EDIT: <looks again> Whoa! And you gave different lines different thicknesses! What's commonplace to you amazes me! Cool effect I wish I'd thought of doing...

How do you feel it went though - other than finickily? If there's too long a 'waiting time' between lines, if pc slowdown hurts it, you could:

try a smaller image, reduce the pixel-size before you start;
only do one character/part of a pic at a time - you end up with say 3 characters in 3 different image files, and then you superimpose them onto a single master pic in photoshop (v. easy and quick once you get the hang of it) where you start colouring etc.

Also, you can try to make a single line do as much work as possible - for a bare arm, say, I'd do only 4 lines, inner and outer upper arm, inner and outer lower arm. This reduces the total number of lines used on an image, which means less data for your pc to process, which further reduces slowdown!

Yeah, I did overestimate the capacity of a dusty old Pentium III somewhat, though by the time I realized my mistake I'd already gottan a fair swathe of the way through. In future I will definately crop before I start.

Thanks for the compliments  smile

I don't think that's allowed on PEEL - too many underaged members and people who PEEL from the workplace.  Kryten usually lurks around on the fics and art threads, so he may see your question and send you a response.  Better yet, e-mail him and ask what the limits are.

Not sure about the exact tolerance of the current management, but I would say arrange for a strategically placed handrail to appear in the foreground. Or switch on the black bar generator. This site does have some young members, and adventurous artists have occasionally had a rough reception in the past. The-site-of-which-we-may-not-speak is the place for topless art.

From personal experience, bums and sides of bosoms are OK - anything you could reasonably see on the show, really. If there's more than that, I recommend:

Marcus - Funny little paradox that, ain't it? I know it's well-trodden territory that doesn't even require comment anymore, but it still strikes a bone of hilarity in me every time I come up against it. I could draw an image of someone getting their head crushed under a steel-capped boot and use the term "motherfucker" for no good reason, and nobody would bat an eyelid. Yet if I tried to portray something beautiful and natural I'm suddenly on dangerous ground. I can't imagine little kids could be damaged by seeing a bare breast - seeing someone get shot to death on the other hand... come on, which of those two things is abhorrant and which is beautiful? This modern society is... unusual, don't you think. Back in my day nobody even wore clothes.

BF - You're not alone, I never cease to amaze myself. Honestly, I'm just in awe of me.  tongue
Heh, kidding, but thanks.

BU99 - Futurama could do a whole episode like that. Maybe they could travel to an alternate universe where everything's manga-fied or something. South Park did something similar once which was damn cool.

Yes, he has: And though he may be loathe to say it, they’re pretty darn good!
“Demons From the Past,” is posted on TLZ, an he’s posted the beginnings of another, called “Desire for Vengeance,” on this board... somewhere.
I don’t have the link handy, or I’d post it.

If by funny we mean depressing, yep!  tongue

It's hard to disagree with anything you say. Again, just personally, I think a lot of uncensored, nude-is-fine policies do lead to out and out pure titilation works (though I'm never certain of the _objective_ 'badness' of these pieces), but you also miss out on a lot of excellent work that happens to include nudity.

Och well, can't be helped  smile In the meantime, while the mores change, I've come to think it's by far the best to politely abide by the gallery-owners' wishes while they pay for the wallspace!   laff
