Black Centaur with Background by Lucifer-A Black Centaur with Background by Lucifer-A
After receiving lots of precious advices and comments (a special thanks to those sgcafe members esp), I've finally fix this background to my centaur!! Well, i cannot say it's finalized yet, there maybe still room for improvement.

At first i want to produce some twirling of the mist around the centaur's legs, but I guess i'm not skillful enough to do that for the moment (Any Hints??). So, for now, i add some spirits or souls around it... ^0^

Anyway, here goes. (Pardon me that i'm still a junior in Photoshop, and my lack of control of the mouse....) ^_^ Do pls correct me if u find anything...

Oh, he's a beauty! I love the detailing, the weapon, the centaur himself. And the background is lovely. I'm using Paintshop Pro rather than PS, and I still haven't figured out half the cool things it can do. *mutters* finally realized layers are an artist's friend.

Beautiful work!

Sweet! this is totally wicked! Instant fav! The only correction I can see is that the hind legs of the horse might look better if reversed (the near being risen, the far being planted)... but i still think it's completely mind-blasting! :)

This centaur is the best I never see. He has a intimidating presence but at the same time he has something fascinate, it's wonderful

The souls and the big sickle are a perfect complement. Congratulations

Hmm, it does look a bit cut out but it's great nontheless
Very original esp the sword-scythe design and the wings
The background is really nice for a "junior" :)
though the topmost black cloud could use a bit of smoothing out if you ask me ;)
Keep it up you're getting there

Oh thanks for the advices, shall make good use of them in the future work!! heh I just discovering blur tool and smudge tool a few days before haha (i'm so slow), i wonder will that do the trick of smoothening

:iconthurisaz-ryu:
thurisaz-ryu Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2006
Wow No smudge and blur? :O_o:
makes me wonder how you made the background at all
anyway for the twirls you say you wanted to add I'd recommend the liquify tool (filter -> liquify) It's pretty simple and easy to use once you get the hang of it
Just put some brushstrokes and liquify
On a different layer of course you don't want to spoil the great picture now do you? ;)

:iconlucifer-a:
Lucifer-A Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2006
Oh thanks for the tips~~ will prove to be useful in the future haha

For the smudge-like effect, actually i use the Gradient Tool->Radial, then just overlap the loops togather heh (Well, that's the long way i guess oops)

the lightsource doesn't fit the figure, assuming
it's the moon. you should probably reflect some
of the surrounding colors on him as well...it looks
like he's cut and pasted on. i like your style though..
nice work.

Oh really thanks for the precious advices, actually i've been waiting someone to say something like that~~

I shall take that down, and you're certainly right about one part... INDEED the centaur is cut and paste to the background haha! Oh and thanks for appreciating my style ^.^

:iconlucifer-a:
Lucifer-A Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2006
Ah no no, that's not CG. It's hand-draw. I used a set of markers with different shade of gray and black. The glimmers effect is due to the running out of ink of my markers hahaha. Everything is purely accidental, don't put me too high hahah

:iconlucifer-a:
Lucifer-A Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2006
Hahaha, maybe because the silhouette effect cover the entire centaur, so it somehow look more CG. I'm not that great enough to produce something fully digital la~~ using mouse to draw is very...Hard!!

And u are not the only one here haha, some experts can color so REAL that it = photos!! (gasp)

Lol, I'm glad that I'd invested a bit over 50 bucks to get myself a drawing tablet (didn't have to be the best, just something more comfortable ^^)... drawing with a mouse is so hard! T_T

Yes, I've seen some photo-realism before... stunning. ^^ But, I have to say, I prefer when it's well drawn by imagination than by using a photo reference. >.>

50 bucks?! In what currency? U mean HK$ 50??!! *faint* In that case guess i'll fly there during my holiday and get one!! Ya i'm content enough even it's not the best quality. Just no mouse!! (T-T)

Umm u have a point there, (that u prefer well drawn by imagination than by photo reference), somehow those words make me feel better haha (Where-ever i go, there're so many powerful people out there, really make me want to shrink and hide heh)
