Hey Gum-Man, I went to the beginning of this thread and I found something amazing, truly amazing, just beautiful. Improvement. I was just browsing throught it and you have improve so much, it's just beautiful. Keep up the amazing work and never stop improving.

Didn't that sound like a gay self motivation speech?

I read along through the topic, noting your improvements and particulary liking your starting picture, the snowman.

I had some fish.

Like your art style, the black lines are bad in your latest piece, and I have to admit it took me a while to pin together "Gumby" and "Havegum".

I didn't know you had gum. I like fish, myself. No I don't, I can't stand the smell of them, I prefer gum.

Fresh fish is good! Especially when it is cooked right! :D

Anyways, I opened photoshop, started drawing this guy using only three colors.

I can't stand looking at it now though :P

The good thing about school is that you get to draw in classes and the teachers'll applaud you for it!

Maybe it was because we had about typography and media design ...

Well, it aint my handwriting. My real handwriting is ugly as hell. That was my attempt at hiding my awful handwriting :P

Indeed

Now for some homework
The task was to create a poster for "Fløyen". It's a mountain that most/all people in Bergen knows of (Aka didn't have to put in all sorts of information on how to get there and whatnot)

That is one confident turtle.. Nice touch with the sunglasses. I think you should fix the perspective on the legs though - it is a bit backwards right now. The front legs should be further apart or the hindlegs should be closer together - one of the two :) Perhaps try to draw a square under the turtle to see where the legs should be.

I appreciate the comments! I actually didn't notice it myself ... I'll keep it in mind for future drawings though!

But why is he wearing disco platforms if he's wearing stutter shades?
Stutter shades aren't disco =O

Well okay. After doing the lineart, I used an auto-fill function Dave taught me and just get in the base color. Then I duplicated that layer twice and made one darker and one lighter (Stole this from Dave too). I also tinted the shade color towards blue and the light color towards yellow (refer to the image attached). At this point I will mask out the two duplicated layers and start shading, you can do this by clicking the little button with a square and a circle inside of it called "Create Layer Mask", then you fill the whole layer black, and start painting with white color. If you want multiple steps in the shading (such as I did on the turtle), you can paint with a grey color first, then paint over the extreme shades with white. I used a rounded square brush which I learned from an artist Cloudy linked me to. Later I maybe color the lineart and/or add shines and effects

That's basically it. I tried to get it as smooth as possible on the evolution thingy.

Okay, so I have this big project I've gotta do for school, luckily, I get to decide what the task is for myself.
So I found it natural for me to apply drawing in the task in some way.
I concretized my task down to this:
Making an ad campaign for a sci-fi techno music festival lasting for three days on the top of a mountain. The campaign will include:
A logo design
Creating, printing and mounting four A2-sized posters, and two banners.
(Creating and printing a T-shirt)

Anywho, I humbly present my little logo thingy.

YES! THIS MUST BE IT!

It's all caps for now, but if I care enough later on, maybe I'll add the small ones too.

Very nice Gumbumabillorillo, very interesting, neat and creative. Don't forget punctuation symbols!
