Silhouette Art Practice Thread Jan. 12th, 2012 @ 03:29 PM Reply

Thought it was a good ideia for people who want to get better at it.

If you dont know about making artwork from silhouettes digitally, well, it's pretty much just adding value on a black shape and then add detail and color it.

At least for me, uit goes a little bit like this (I know this example isnt perfect though):

First I make a black silhouette with some shape: http://www.majhost.com/gallery/RadiantTl /crap/silhouettetest1.jpg

Then I add value and details:
http://www.majhost.com/gallery/RadiantTl /crap/silhouettetest2.jpg

Then the color:
http://www.majhost.com/gallery/RadiantTl /crap/silhouettetestart.jpg

Lot's of people do these, and I think it would be cool to pratice doing it in this thread... how you say?

Well, all you have to do is to use the silhouette created by the user above you and give value, details etc. And then comment, posting the result, and also post a silhouette created by you, for the next user to use to make the artwork.

Sorry for the english

I'll start:

Hey, that's actually a cool idea! It's gonna get a little confusing if everybody is going to make this one and then post a silhouette they made themselves.. But aside from that this sounds nice. Maybe I'll give it a try.

You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else.
