    After a quick scan I couldn't see anything about digital artists. Common, peeps, I know there have got to be others besides me! I wanna see what you guys are doing [​IMG]

    I've taken a basic Photoshop class as an elective for school. Actually, it covered Flash and Dreamweaver too but still. Right now I'm working mainly digitally with art/coloring, as well as photo touch ups and edits (not manips).


    Here's one of my horse design commissions on DeviantART.

    And one my photos with editing/touch ups.

    Oh, me ! Me ! Pick me ! [​IMG]

    If this is a topic to share art, then I'm more than willing to join, fellow DeviantARTist ~
    Is the horse you drew your actual horse, or is he a character you created ?
    Else I find the photo touch-up neat looking, I too am sort of a fan of doing this, even though I'm more into digital drawing/painting. C:
    I used to draw dragons and other stuff like that, but now I'm more into Kung Fu Panda related art, especially since I saw the second movie with the peacock character in it ~

    Of course it's cartoon, so the peacocks I draw don't necessarily have normal colours, nor will they look exactly like peafowls aaand of course real peafowls don't wear clothes nor have feathered hands.

    Those have to be part of my personal favourites I drew of the characters I created inspired by the second Kung Fu Panda 2 movie :

    In this one, only the peacock is my character, the peahen next to him belongs to a friend of mine :
    [​IMG]
    And in those two, it's the same characters which both belong to me :
    [​IMG]

    I also have some digital paintings :

    Some white griffin :
    [​IMG]
    The background here was done by a friend of mine though, I only did the dragon :
    [​IMG]

    Lord Shen from Kung Fu Panda 2 :
    [​IMG]
    And a Green peacock. Please do excuse any anatomy mistakes, this is the first ever realistic peafowl I painted on the computer ;n;
    [​IMG]

    But there are some samples of my works :'D
    Pardon the size, if needed, I will edit the post with smaller thumbnails. ~

    Quote:Yay the crazy chooks of DA come together! No, he's just a character design I created. Thanks - at first I was as well, but when I got sick/depressed I just didn't have the drive to do anything and I still suffer for those years with complete lack of drawing of any kind.

    Your work is great! I suck so bad at backgrounds it's not even funny. So jealous!

    You're welcome !
    Well, creating character is quite fun ! He is pretty neat looking :'D
    Yes, once you've been exploring all of the field, well, it gets boring and you need a fresh start. Draw your animals ! This may help ~ [​IMG]

    Oh heh...Well I used to use a lot of Photoshop brushes for my backgrounds, I felt a bit lame for that...Now I decided I'd work as much as I could on everything, be it subject or background and...well, tadaaaa :'D
    Thank you so much as well !
    I have an other peacock painting in the works, I'll post it here hopefully when it's done ~

    Voilà !

    [​IMG]

    I've been working on this for some 7 hours or something
    Do you have any other pictures to share ? ~
    It seems like there are not many Digital Artists on here or...they are too shy to show up.
    Come on guys ! ;w;

    Wow, that's gorgeous! I try not to keep track on how long I work on something. Makes me feel lifeless XD Don't feel bad. Even if you don't draw all of it, it's still a butload of work getting it to where it is. While brushes help tremendously, I know they're not magic! [​IMG]

    A few other things, but not much that I can access or is finished. So much of my stuff is just laying around half finished - actually, most of it. Like 95% of it. [​IMG] Lets see...

    A very old work that was a speed work. Done in under an hour for a chemistry assignment for world mole day!

    Thank you very much !
    And yeah, I mostly only use the err...that leaf shaped brush to make the tree tops and bushes but that's it. xD

    Pokemon, I see ? >.> <.<
    I like Pokémon too ! [​IMG]
    What's the idea exactly behind the "Pokemole" thing ? I'm not much a physician or whatever aaand maybe I'm stupid too ! [​IMG]
    Your hedgehog (sp ?) drawing looks so cute ! I'm assuming you like this little animal ?
    And the photo ad is well done too ! I can't do graph/Photomanip much...But still I try ! My icon is a bit of a photomanipulation. I took the peacock, got rid of the original background, and added some shades on him aaaand put an other background instead x'D
    But again, it looks nicely organised !

    Yes, of course! I used to be real big into pokemon. Who wasn't?

    No, you're not stupid >-> A mole is a unit of measurement in chemistry. They have a national mole day celebrating it - for some odd reason - and we had to draw something creative as a rather high point grade. I was sitting there thinking... "moles. Moles moles... mon. Pokemon! NO - POKEMOLES!" I got first in the non existant competition and my work was featured in the front of the school. (Thanks Ms.-name censored- for making me look like even more of a nerd in front of the school body back in highschool!)

    Oh yes. I love them so much I breed them [​IMG]

    I would consider it to be such. It's just not some peoples piece of cake, ya know? I was gifted to be able to drabble in most things (music, art, digital, literature, photography) except for dance and theater, but sometimes it's sad because, well, you're okay in a lot of things but not amazing in one thing.

    Now that's funny !
    If I had drawn Pokémoles my teacher would probably have found me weird !
    (lol well people didn't mock you I hope, did they ? o-o)

    Oh that's cute ! [​IMG]
    I saw one eating one day, but it got its food all over the ground [​IMG]

    Well, I suppose it's best than being lame at everything ! At least there are still things we can do !
    Lately I'm art blocked...I can't find my inspiration and motivation to save my life [​IMG]
    And I've got a lot of things to do such as Art Trades and Secret Santas but...Yeah this is going to be hard. xD
