Artwork de K4ICY

I've really enjoyed painting with Verve!

Here is my second piece called "Rooftop."

Image

It has an overcast evening feel to it.

My PC has an i7-2600k 3.4GHz / NVidia GeForce GTX560
I only have a mouse to work with for now.

Re: Artwork de K4ICY

Thank you Taron, I'm flattered!

Thanks Pilou! I have you to thank. Though, I will not promise tutorials - painting is so personal. ;-)


On a technical note, I noticed that my PC's overall performance (other programs) was considerably slowed even when Verve was minimized.
I imagine that there is some fluidity engine that keeps working even when minimized?

I used too many layers, which is an bad habit borrowed from Photoshop use. Once I had too many, Verve did not let me access them, once off screen (no scroll,) but maybe I will try to 'merge' them.

So is there a way to set the angle of the brush bias with the mouse? I love your trees technique!

Also, might I suggest a future consideration to allow Verve the ability to import an image on it's own layer for layout and tracing purposes?
I tend to prefer hand-sketching my concept layouts.

Thanks!

Re: Artwork de K4ICY

LOL, ouch...and ... OUCH!
You can actually still access the layers via the hotkeys [F9] - [F12]...check the docs in the Info&Download threads!
Hmmmm....I gotta see, I could probably check for minimized window and then suspend the process. Didn't even think about that! :?
THANKS! ;)

This one is called "Desert Miracle."

A remote Aloe plant imbued with mystical healing power from above.

Yes, I used the Chroma setting at 100% :)

Totally wicked! :lol: ...in every way! But it works quite well! :D
Love the little pebbles, haha! You should've some bigger more prominent ones to keep going with the great lighting/lightning! Awesome!

Re: Artwork de K4ICY

Thanks!!!

The pebbles were last, and by then everything was lagging really slow, however to be fair I was also running a wide-format printer software RIP.
...oh, lots of layers - makes Verve cry, I have to stop making so many and just learn to trust my painting... to go with the flow.
I called it quits when I tried to undo a layer merge - and it didn't work... :o But all good now!

But yes Taron, I'm really psyched about this one! I'm looooving Verve... ;)

Re: Artwork de K4ICY

Ahhh, I'm digging for a good expression to describe how wonderful it is to hear that! :D
I hope it's alright, if I say: Me, too! :lol:
Now I gotta see that I continue with the interface...need to get some standards up like custom resolution input and all that.
