Tiny tips: War paint by Ranarh Tiny tips: War paint by Ranarh
Tattoos are an integral part of fantasy, as is war paint for Indians and tribal elves. It's not even hard to do. As always, I would love to see your works if you use this Tiny Tip to create anything!

"Ranarh's tiny tips" is a collection of iddy-biddy tutorials, each containing small bites of advice anyone can chew, aimed at beginner's level artists. They are not software-dependent. If there's a problem you have, something you feel someone should finally explain, or are just curious what I have to say on a particular artistic issue, feel free to tell me.


You'll find the whole Tiny Tips Collection, plus some full-grown walkthroughs in my tutorial section. Check out my blog and website for exclusive tutorials, walkthroughs, and tips.

This should be Poseidon (comes with GIMP, I think). Thanks!

Very nice! its little details like this that can help sell a picture(s) fantasy world even if the actor does not want to have paint on them or was actually in another work you did but the pose still works for another project.

Thank you :thanks:

Although, for very complex tattoos it might actually be easier to talk your model into having some felt pen on.

Wie meinst du das "make sure the lighting of the picture and your painting don't mathc exactly"? O_O
Einfach wild mit Licht und Schatten gehen? :XD:
Sorry, du weißt, ich bin noch ein noob. Übrigens, hast du Painter 12 schon ausprobiert? Wäre schön, einige Aquarell-Tipps zu sehen. *3*

Ein Beispiel: wenn Dein Bild von oben links beleuchtet ist, sollte das Foto in Deinem Bild nicht auch von oben link, sondern von rechts oder so beleuchtet sein. Andernfalls entsteht der Eindruck, dass der Inhalt des Fotos dreidimensional präsent in Deinem Bild wäre.
Nicht wild nur entschieden ;)

Nein, zu Painter 12 bin ich noch nicht gekommen (aber ich spare schon). In jedem Fall werd ich wenig Anleitung für die Aquarellpinsel geben können. Sie sind zwar sehr schön, aber auch sehr rechenlastig und da ich gern sehr großformatig arbeite, behindern sie mich durch ihre Langsamkeit. Aber versuch doch mal irgendwas von Don Seegmiller zu finden, der benutzt die oft.

Ach so, jetzt verstehe ich das. Danke! ^^;

Ja, Aquarell ist zwar sehr schön, habe ich heute ausprobiert, aber es dauert eeeeeeewig bis es geladen hat! O_O Da bin ich schneller mit Papier und Pinsel! :D
Ich schaue aber gleich nach, ob ich etwas finden kann. Danke für den Namen. ;)
