Tears of Pond by ChaosAcathla Tears of Pond by ChaosAcathla
***EDIT*** I hated the contrast of the dark background with her hair so I've changed it to this far nicer lighter one.
---------------------------------------------------

Poor Amy, she seems to have had such a rough ride with Doctor this past season don't you think?

I needed more female practice and where better to start, I find the female face harder as I think I've said before. This was relatively painless though.

Trying to move away from the reference more as I develop some confidence with digital.

Awesome, thank you very much my dear! :hug:

Every time I looked in my gallery the bg on this really bugged me so while I was struggling to pick up the piece i'm working on the other day I used altering this to get me into the photoshop mood! Sooo happy I did! :D

I believe so, but I altered it somewhat. She wasn't crying originally.

Just looked at again, it really is superb work. I've not followed the last series..don't know why either:shrug:
I originally intended to try digital painting myself, somehow lol, in between the strokes leaving my brain & arriving at my hands...they go wonky!!! :|...so I've just stuck too photography:giggle:

Maybe after seeing this piece I should pull it up on catch-up tv:D

Well I just took another look through your gallery and you definitely have the eye for colour and composition, which I sadly lack. I reckon your problem with digital is probably more to do with how to use whichever digital program in a more painting capacity. I only say that because I always thought the same as you about my digital attempts and then I discovered how to use certain tools and what settings create what brush strokes and then I was away! :squee:

Yeah the last series has had some pretty awesome aspects, It's been more up and down than some seasons but the ups are worth it! :D

:iconfingerdanceplz:cheers for the inspiration my dear :iconfingerdanceplz:..my gallery is best viewed 6 pages back to the start;)
you maybe right too...after I read this message, I set about getting the drivers needed for my tablet to run with 7. I've been playing this afternoon...there'll be no pond 'superpaints' from this account anytime soon though :D

Awesome! :happybounce: I'm glad I helped with some inspiration!

What program do you use your tablet with? If it's PS I could always give you some brush pointers if you ever feel the need. I know your a pro with photography but maybe I could help on the digipaint front?! ><

Haha man I use CS2! What brushes or technique do you tend to use when approaching a 'full on complete' paint?
