Your rendering is amazing. I don't even know what to say at this point. Keep this thing updated!
nice style!! i like the brush techniques!!!
very nice ben, they are all so very green, but i like it
and i love how you've got the extreme soft/stylized and extreme realism mixed together. keep it up!
Awesome stuff all round. The clown is great. I really like the way your rendering seems so soft, yet quite sharp too.
fantastic, cant wait to see more!
That first image is outstanding! Excellent rendering skills. Those first 3. Wow!
Can you say where you studied?

Glad to see you start a sb, hope it's gonna be fed on a regular basis or else some fans like me might get real hungry (once the salina got agitated).
Love first and last one. B-card is a quite original one too.
I really like your rendering - it reminds me a bit of Phil Hale. Keep posting!
wow and yay!
Thanks for all the props guys. For those of you who where wondering, most of them are experiments with Painter.
1 and 2 where started in photo shop with a big soft circle brush and then a complex textured photoshop brush to loosely suggest the shapes. Then I go into Painter to polish up a bit. I like how photoshop and Painter compliment each other. It sounds like some of you guys are able to appreciate this too. Yes/No?
Sometimes I think I should just use photoshop because it's easier/ more efficient (and for my professional work on particularly tight deadlines I do try to stick to photoshop); but Painter is a lot more fun and I think it makes things look a little better. Any of you guy feel the same way?
The backgrounds on 3 and the last one are scanned in texture. And the happy B-Day is just pen and marker on a sticky note.

I've tried to use painter...but i ALWAYS just end up scribbling around with the brushes making a colourful mess like a 5 year old ...it's fun but I simply cannot get to grips with it...so I struggle to try and make Photoshop more painterish but I usually fail..and simply plod alongOriginally Posted by Ben_Olson
