A Work In Progress. A drawing that I really want to finish as an illustration. It is also a good view on how I organised my photoshop workspace. Tools on the right (I am right handed) and 'Coolorus Color Picker' and 'Navigator' on the left. I press Tab or Shit+Tab to clear the workspace while painting.
One of the missing features in Photoshop but available in other Adobe products is the very useful Save and Increment. This means saving a file and automatically assigning a different name, as an example 'namefile-v6.jpg'. This doesn't exist in photoshop and you have to manually write it.
I personally use Hazel to do this for me. Hazel is a very useful utility that automate some tasks on your OS (for example deleting files from your download folder after a couple of days or moving files to another folder depending on their name or size, etc...)
As I have to show many iterations of my concept artworks to my clients I have this Hazel Rule that helps me creating files without even thinking about it. I just save my file and Hazel automatically rename and increment it.
This is how the rule is set:
This means that every time I save a file containing the word 'iteration' and with the extension '.jpg' into a specific folder the OS will automatically add an incremented file name.
I love vikings. Always loved them. This time I wanted to draw something directly inspired from Pedro Conti 's 'One More Beer!' short movie, even tho his trousers look like Obelix (I'm french, I can't help sorry)...
I've been asked many times what is that colour wheel on my photoshop screen. Well it is just a photoshop extension.
This is definitively one of the most useful plugin I use. Easy to install it will offer an additional window where you can pick up the colours like in Corel Painter. I always prefer Painter colour wheel rather than Photoshop.
Basically: one ring for the Hue and one triangle for the Saturation and the Value.
Moreover the wheel can create a gradient of colours between A and B just clicking on the small triangle on the bottom right. Useful!
Stretch your legs because you are going on the run of lifetime! You are Sheldon, winner of the famous ‘Tortoise and the Hare’ race. Unfortunately for you, the members of the Hare gang are not very good losers. Old Man Hare wants your golden trophy and will stop at nothing to get it. If you want to survive, you’ll have to run for it!
Once you’ve begun your escape, tap the screen anywhere to jump in the air. Tap and hold to jump higher. To stay alive, you must avoid an endless stream of pesky Hares by leaping over them or smashing them with an expertly timed jump. Every Hare you land on builds up a protective shell. Crush five Hares and you get a backup shell.
Along your journey, you’ll find powerful items like Bouncing Bubble, Super Wings, Mega Boost, and Glide Power. They’re exactly what you need to get the upperhand on the Hare gang. Collect coins along the way to upgrade your power-ups, buy cool clothing or get a second chance at your run.
Spoiler Alert! It won’t be easy. The further you run, the harder the bad guys get. But if you got what it takes, you’ll soon be racking up distance records, unlocking achievements and blowing past your friends on the leaderboard. Also, did we mention there are awesome special items like Get Ahead and the Coin Magnet? Use these items to level up faster and rack up your score.
But enough with the chit chat, already. We’ve got to get out of here. Don’t just stand there! Run Sheldon!
