These are before and after paintings I did for myself a while back in PS CS3. Havent painted too much for a while now, however it fits the theme so I decided to upload it again for the contest just cuz.
I absolutely love the change in the flag...like how in the first one his side got their asses kicked, but in the new one it's a new day, a new battle, and his side f*ckin' won. I also like how crisp the new one is. Great job.
Been looking through the contest gallery for like 10 minutes, half of them are either changes in style, or they changed the picture. You seem to be one of the only people who actually entered the contest correctly, and you did a damn good job on this too.
I guess I really don't have a 'style' yet. I think style really doesn't matter. I have not looked through very many of the entries but I have seen some whos 'style' has changed a bit but their overall skill as an artist has really improved as well. Im still in the 'not quite there yet' catagory. However thank you very much for the compliment! ^_^
You have a style. It seems to me, you have a combination of realistic lighting, but somewhat cartoonish texture and form, probably just because of a lack of 100% realism. Like, the fabric on the drawing, it looks like fabric, but it doesn't have that fabric texture. If that's not what you're going for, focus on adding in more textures. People act like you need to have your own independent style as an artist, but you don't really have to to be a good artist. Hell, my drawings, I've gone for just photorealism. That's a style in itself.
