MASTERPIECE by Kid-Apocalypse MASTERPIECE by Kid-Apocalypse
Portrait of ~LettuceYum. This took me the better part of two days. And that is only when the majority of the work was done. :phew: For the first time since I joined dA, I feel that I can slap on the Advanced Critique label....

:wave: Hi, Joey!! Hi, Mayaj!! I DID IT!!!!

Edit: Forgot to mention, I did this in Corel Painter IX with a Wacom tablet, using this photo-- [link]

He joined just a little while ago, I hope he has fun here. ^-^
:blushes: Thanks. I've started another, this one was done all with oil paints (buncha different brushes), now I'm doing another that has some chalks in it. Too bad I can't call it "mixed media" :giggle:

:nod: I've got the chalked part done, I don't know if I'll be using anything other than oil paints for the rest. :D I love digital painting, there's no cleanup and no having to worry about buying supplies!

For real!!!! Just disc space. How much space does one paiting take up on average? You don't wanna know how much space a song before it's exported takes up... X_X

I save all my pictures as PNG, so they're usually under 400kb, but the painting of Joey was 632kb...

Ah. My normal songs run at about 10MB per minute... each track... so if I have multiple tracks, my songs can usually run up to 100 MB or more. When I export them, they're in aiff format, which is everything at once and about 10~12 MB per minute. Then I convert them down to mp3 and they take up about 1/10th that space, then I delete the aiff file. But I always keep the original tracks in GarageBand in case I want to change them. Wish there was a way to compress the tracks...

Vector art is stuff like this-- [link] While I was painting, I kept thinking of some vectors I'd seen around here.
