Just thought I’d share a little personal project I’ve spent the last few evenings on. Dr. Wainright and Podge in all their glory. It’s still a work in progress, but I thought it was starting to look good enough to share a peek.
I was experimenting with a new (to me) technique for copying from a photo. I started out zoomed way, way out and slowly worked my way in, adding more detail with each pass. I totally botched the angle of his head and the gun. I’m not sure how I managed to change the perspective from the source photo, but I’m still pretty happy with how it turned out for a first effort.
Painted in the gimp on a fujitsu stylistic st5112 with minor color adjustments/grain effects added using g’mic plugin.
Just another pulp excercise. This was done from a photograph of the lovely Diana Dors. I used the Gimp and my Wacom pad to paint the image from scratch. I used G’Mic’s "Black & White" setting to add a little grain and tweaked the levels a touch to fine tune the contrast.
