Photoshop Trainin'

Just doing some studies in photoshop right now

Another quick face study

Weird female figure study. Been messin' with a lot of clown imagery lately.

I never liked clowns much as a child, I didn't fear or hate clowns, I just found performers inherently embarassing, it was embarassing to play pretend.

As I've gotten in to reading about clowning/mime and comedia del arte origins I've started to enjoy clown imagery more. There is a certain aesthetic to an excellent clown or mime performance, and a mythological undercurrent (the lord of misrule, fool king, and accompanying trickster gods) which I seem to dig.

Crops ~ 6

I got kind of caught up in my detail pass. Kind of like this color scheme better.

I particularly like the detail on the transition around the neck.

Crops ~ V

Quick update to this texture pass. I think I'm going to try two other treatments in polypaint. I'd like to mess with the materials a bit, but I haven't gotten in to that before, so I might just call this done.
