Superboy...Sketch to Final!!

Hey Bloggers! This here is a photoshop piece that I've been working on for the last couple of days. I'm still experimenting with Photoshop and have alot to learn. If anyone has any suggestions for improvement, please don't hesitate to drop me a line.

Here is the doodle I did the other day of "superboy" (left). I went home and started sketching a more designy version of him (right). Then I scanned it and played with some colors in Photoshop. Although I feel that Painter is more artist friendly with coloring...Do you digital folks out there prefer Painter to Photoshop?

Anyways, I've got more designs I'm working on so stay tuned for more, boys n' girls!

Hey Chris, great sketch/color job! I'm still experimenting with the whole 'digital coloring' myself so its nice to see how others are trying out the medium as well. I have no preference, though I have been using photoshop mostly, lately. Would like to play with Painter some more though. As for tips, and i dont want this to be a long rambling 'comment' but, i'll just say that I subscribe to the ImagineFX pub (imaginefx.com). Lots of great tips in there.

I love it!!!AWESOME photoshop painting, I like photoshop, but I don't know nothing about it...hehehe

i personally use both. ps is better with editing colors and playing around with textures (especially when you make your own brushes), but painter simulates natural media alot better. painter is also a looot clumsier and slower with things like brush resizing, layers, etc. plus,if i want a natural look, i still prefer scanning paint and editting it in ps.

Good stuff Chris! Keep them coming! I look forward to seeing more stuff on your amazing blog!

Thank you for visiting my blog (as you have many others I can see). I think that since you have good traditional art training, Painter might be the thing for you. I am not an authority in this field as I spend the whole day using drafting software AUTOCAD to draw toilets! Ha Ha!

Hello Chris! Photoshop is an amazing tool, I luv it! but a few month a go I discovered Painter with a Wacom Tablet and that change my way to do digital stuff drastically!
You'll love it too!
Thx for the comment and thanks to show your lovely stuff here!

Hey Chris,
Top pic is great! Nice color choices on a super appealing drawing. I'm a PS fellow myself and find it to be an awesome tool.

Shawn Escott said...

Really nice Chris! I like what you're doing with photoshop. Maybe a little shadow under his feet would plant him down a bit. Unless, that is, if he is hovering :) I like what you're doing with the rest of your sketches as well. The watercolors are wonderful!

Hodges! said...

nice i really like the design, particularly that hes not overly perfect looking as superman is usually represented (the gapped teeth) nice work, personally i use photoshop mostly but you might like to try out opencanvas or artrage, but its amazing what just photoshop can do now.

Strong pose, I love the character.

i was once told,when it comes to Photoshop
..."you were probably done a half hour ago!"
It's a bottomless program.

brockorama said...

I'm a control freak. Photoshop has the ease of use and level of manipulation of every single pixel that makes OCD artists like me love it. They're all great programs, but I bet you'll end up making final finishing touches in whatever you do in photoshop. And you have some KICK ass sketches on here man!

Anne-arky said...

So cute! :) I love the looseness to the watercolor version of him.

(ps - I think painter is a little more artist-friendly, although I admit I usually use Photoshop more often.)

katzenjammer studios said...

really nice man. a lot of clearity to this character but still a very nice flow and dynamic feel to it.
good luck with photoshop, take the time to learn it as it's very versatile and can get a lot of cool stuff done. painter is always fun, but stick it through with photoshop; good luck.

Mitch K said...

Hey there! Thanks for commenting on my blog.

I love your watercolour & pen sketches, especially the one of that college student waiting for the train!

Jeffrey said...

Excellent gesture! Where did you study?

flipstudios said...

chris, first time visitor and i'm very impressed. you've got tons of great stuff here. i love your take on life drawing, it really is the best to just draw life, eh? people sitting, eating ... living.
and this latest pic of superboy. i think the colours are looking great. good little design here. i'll be back for more ...

FerdinandKreozot said...

Lovely work.
All of it.

Cheers to your skill,

adrian said...

Hey Chris.Love the design.
I use both but I just started using painter a few months ago albeit not often enough. I find that painter excells in "picking up underlying colors" like real painting, but PS is way easier to manipulate images with. That being said..I use both on the same image sometimes. And after reading this I realize that's no help at all!hahaha

Goobeetsablog said...

nice drawings below.
and super design.

he's really funny.

Edward Juan said...

that's adorable!

Hi! nice sketches ^___^
about softwares, It depending on what I want to obtain. I often use PS, but sometimes I prefer Painter, OpenCanvas or Artrage (because renders differ between them and I love testing new softwares, new technics,... but this is a personnal view)
Choose the one you're comfortable with and have fun. ^____^
