“The seven years you spend here as a surgical resident will be the best and worst of your life. You will be pushed to the breaking point. Look around you. Say hello to your competition. Eight of you will switch to an easier specialty. Five of you will crack under the pressure. Two of you will be asked to leave. This is your starting line. This is your arena. How well you play? That’s up to you.
Ok srry if this is a stupid question or whatever but how t h e hEcK do you get your traditional art to look so bright and clear? like?? it looks like it's a digital sketch do you just edit the pic's saturation or- idk plz help this kind soul (maybe u just have a really good camera + lighting)
Huh, so I don’t do anything particularly special. I scan my traditional art with an Epson Perfection V370 scanner and then make adjustments in Photoshop when necessary.
To get rid of some of the smudginess/texture of the paper
I played around with image > adjustments > brightness and contrast, and then duplicated the layer, set it to multiply and repeated the adjustment step until I was happy with the darkness and clarity of the lines. As a final little colour tweak I used image > adjustments > variations on the multiply layer to give it a red tint.
Resizing the image for the purpose of posting probably sharpened the look of the lines as well.
Nothing more than that :D I hope my answer was clear enough!
hiii all your environment paintings really inspire me to create my own!!! can you please tell me how to start practicing, how to use a reference, any tips? your style is really really beautiful
Hello! :) First of all, thank you very much for your kind words!! These really mean a lot to me!
Now I don’t consider myself an expert (not by any stretch) and my drawings are 80% instinct, 20% sheer panic anyway (//sweats) so, I’ll tell you how I do things, take away what you can, keep whatever you want. :)
