Adding Fine Detail

Adding Fine Detail

By Mike Thompson

In this tutorial, Mike adds the fine detail that makes his work stand apart. Adding seams and wrinkles to the fabric plus highlights and shadows that bring the painting to life. If you really look at Mike’s paintings you will see the exciting extras that less observant viewers may miss.

    watching your tutorial is like opening a whole new world to me. I had been working mostly photoshop and now struggling with Corel. 3d, modeling and z brushes sounds very exciting. I watched all 3 episodes, plus the webinar. It is mostly over my head but I will be reviewing it a few more times.

    Gwen is seen like she is on an invisible glass floor and me, the viewer is seeing her from below. I am not familiar with other Gwen illustrations but I find it very uncomfortable that I am staring up into her crotch area. This area is bigger than the rest of her body. It is almost emphasized. The dark paint overshadows the rest of the illustration. Females don’t like staring into a crotch area, even if it is clothed.

    I don’t mean to offend you in any way. Just an observation.
