The Unknown cover process2 by theirison The Unknown cover process2 by theirison
here is more of me working
its pretty self explanatory

for the hair and lines I used Copic markers and for the paint I used good old Behr House Paint

the very last panel on the bottom is the actual scan of the piece
all the other pics are just pictures from a crappy camera

This is very well done. I seem to have a great difficulty painting, but that *may* be because I don't have the right kind of paint.

okay, it looked like paint for a second but I see you didn't use that... But it's really cool how you did this - mixed media is always fun to do

very cool like the juxtaposition of soft realism and kinda of a cel shaded look very catching.

Note that Erik is using Behr house paint, which differs in quality substantially from the sort you'd buy in an art supply store. Behr, being house paint, is made for covering large areas and drying quickly, so it's not very good for detail work. If you're wanting to cover a large area, though, the house paint will work fine, and you can buy a gallon for the price of a tube of artist's paint at a specialty store, so the price is right.

Thank you so much, I didn't understand what kind of paint it was. Never thought to paint with a media not created for art painting.

Good bye!

Do you know what the 3rd thing out of the 87 things that impress me about work is?

Answer: i love the way your drawings are half flat and half ...not flat. Like the body of the girl looks so real and the clothes look not so real. The juxtaposition is unique and totally awesome.

Hey man. I came across your work about a year an a half ago in a design magazine. I've been secretly following your work ever since. I just wanted to say that your work is really inspiring. I'm a graphic design student, so I dabble a little into paint,drawing etc. so I obviously admire your talents, but its your creativity that really inspires me. I'll be following your blog :)

stupid question: seeing the size how do you scan this?

when I have to work at theses sizes, I genereally have to scan the pic in 8/10 times (yeah i got an a4 scanner) and it's pretty hard to put all the elements together in the end, cuz' the scan doesn't always have the same light -_-'

and not get frustrated

do you know what "photomerge" is on photoshop?

J-Estacado Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2009  Professional General Artist
:lol: no it's ok after a long time working on hues and level I generally manege to have a correct result!

dunno about photomerge,I know the classical "merge",however.... and as i'm using french photoshop it's even harder to see what is it.
