Hey everyone,

This is my second digital painting! ...Another practice piece to try out some techniques and a much better attempt than my first i feel. Took around 20 - 25 hours i think.

Photoshop cs3 and a Wacom bamboo digital tablet.

I ask you to please respect the artwork and DO NOT steal for use without my permission.

May I ask how you achieved the leather pattern in his clothing?
AaronGriffinArt Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Of course no worries...

Firstly i painted the lighting and values of the fabric... so it was pretty smooth... just to get the right levels of lighting and contrast... Then i overlayed a texture of leather from a stock source... to give it the basic texture... then on a new layer again above all the others, i paint in small highlights to bring out the cracks in the leather... and finish up using a small round brush (opacity and scale set to pen pressure) to paint marks and scratches into the leather... to give it a worn feel!

I hope that has helped, if you have any more queries, do not hesitate to ask!

Indeed, hopefully it will be giving you more followers, oh an keep in mind, people seem to like dynamic action paintings, portraits, pieces with familiar scenes, that's at least what I've come to understand.
But as long you manage to capture the escence and present it in a special style depending on whether it stays true to the original or goes in a new direction, you'll most certainly do well in capturing the masses attention.

So I'm look forward to see what you come up with =D
