Sorry for my inactivity over the last week or so, my house mate has infected me with the flue, so I've been really crook the last week and I still feel like shit.

So the only thing I've been working on, is some commissioned pieces, that i am not allowed to share with you guys. :(

Hopfully i'll be back on point soon.
A Quick Paintover Example on Contrast by JLamps
A Quick Paintover Example on Contrast
The original piece was done by the amazing artist DabbleDuck, please check out his gallery and leave him a comment. There is some truly amazing pieces there.

The quick "paintover" example was done by myself, tho it was really just a couple of adjustment layers.

Note that this was very quick and easy to touch up, because it was so masterfully painted by DabbleDuck. For less experienced artists i would recommend getting your composition right, early on in the piece, don't expect it to be as easy to fix, at the end, as this was.

Also I apologize for the writing in the picture, i know it's pretty much illegible on smaller screen, i'm sorry.
I just posted this in Project Comment Comunity, but the same goes for anyone.

'm happy to give critiques and also do some paint over examples for you anytime. 

All you have to do is ask and i would be happy to oblige, as soon as i have the time.

Don't ask, if you can't take constructive criticism, as i will be pointing out the things that i think you could improve upon, as well as the things that i liked.

But if you are serious about getting better and really want some honest feedback and tips to improve, i am happy to help.

Artist | Student | Digital Art
I am an Australian artist currently based in VIC, I would be entirely self taught if it wasn't for youtube and the internet and I am currently working on completing my portfolio and in general working on my blog, youtube channel, as well as keeping up with all the other outlets that i have branched out to.

I am an Illustrator and aspiring concept artist and as always looking to improve my skills as a digital painter. Hopefully one day I can find my place somewhere within the Entertainment Design Industry.

While I am a painter first, i am also a Musician, writing, composing and playing my own music, I also write a bit of fiction, mostly sci fi and fantasy stuff and on top of all that, i have an ongoing obsession with history and a love of all things film and gaming related.

If you ever want me to critique some of your work or would like some creative input into a project of yours feel free to ask, if I have the time, I will be more then happy to help out in anyway that I can.

We self taught artists need to stick together after all!

I've posted my thoughts and critiques in the comments section of the piece. Hope you find it useful and I cant wait to see more.

I'll be watching...

Its currently on page 4, the second last page, if you haven't had a chance to read it yet.

And I've included a few Free Greg Pro Tutorials to illustrate some of my points.

Once again, i hope you find something in there that's useful to you. You are an amazing artist. And I think that if you stay dedicated and keep painting, you'll get to where you want to be in no time.
