Layers Assignment Critique
Mark as Completed
@Jon Neimeister This might be a stupid question, but would you prefer the PS file so you can make edits to our work for critiques? I've been sending you Jpegs of my work on these critiques so far. I have to say you're really pushing me to my full potential, but I feel like I'm getting dwarfed by your experience lol. Not that I'm taking it personally, I'm just fascinated by your knowledge and how you're able to appeal to my traditional painting skills in a digital format.
This was a really hard assignment, I need some practice w/ brush presets something I never learned in college lol
Yeah for mine I had like a hundred layers for everything XD They were in corresponding folders though. So I kept it somewhat tidy. I merged all the layers in the folders to make one layer for each subject. I should of picked a simpler reference so I would have more time to push the second part of the assignment. The details took longer than i thought to paint out.
Question: Is there content in part 2? It says 0 lessons. Also,is part two just painting techniques or design too?
Thank you so much for the advice! Drawing a cloth and folds in it is really hard, but I'll keep doing my exercise while searching for reference photos to improve my skills.
You nailed it and said my name just right. I'm impressed, it's an unusual name and it's fairly common that people mispronounce it or something. On top of that I myself am (unwillingly) pretty good at butchering people's names, so it adds a new layer of awkwardness to the challenge of meeting new people. Thank you for all the feedback. I love all the takeaways we get from these critiques and your assignment examples. Regarding my critique, I'll test the suggestions as soon as I get the chance. The issue you highlighted with the hair is a problem I have with some clothing and generally all the stuff that overlap an element that they are also being overlapped by themselves. I hope that this will help with the issue I have when making a selection out of the layer. Because I have to cut out a shape out of another, both layers have their edges... well, edge to edge. Photoshop (and CSP) gets quirky in that situation, often resulting in an ugly 1 pixel line that stands out like crazy. I'm assuming it is because of anti aliasing. Finally, maybe you downloaded those on purpose (which, if it's the case, is not really a big deal) but in case you didn't know, I wanted to mention one more thing. The images that are loaded when clicking on a thumbnail in a comment or assignment post are lower resolution versions of the images that are uploaded. From there, the full image can be opened by clicking on the " ... " button at the top right of the page and then clicking "Open original".
