PS CS6 test: Figure Painting


Author Comments

Been almost 2 days since I got Photoshop CS6 and while I HATED trying to make some sketch brushes, I have fallen in love with painting in it. This is one of my first paintings really where I used no lines or sketches whatsoever. I am very proud of myself. This is what I did after just getting Photoshop. I can’t wait to do more studies and better understand color and planes. Looking forward to merging all I’ve learned into some awesome art!

Be sure to follow me on Facebook for WIPs and more!!



God damn I thought it was a picture for a second but after i saw the stream for the pic i was blown away.

@no stylin. Ppjohn has to go easy? Was he really trying that hard to belittle this user in the first place? Idk i dont see harsh critisim but I could agree with him that it just looks like a photo blurred. If it wasnt for the link in his response then I also would not belive it was done legit.

Very talented tho.

awesome work. She streams on picarto.tv is also part of our art study group on FB. So.. to ppjohn take it easy when you assume stuff about people.

Too photorealistic for a painting, which makes me doubt you painted it, but instead filtered and blurred out an existing picture.
