evening glow by loish evening glow by loish
this was sort of an exercise in using reference. i decided to push towards a more realistic result by observing photos of sunsets, perspective from below (for the face), jellyfish, and hands. i think that i focused on this too much and the picture turned out too static, but it was good practice.

drawn in photoshop CS3 with an intuos3 tablet. textures from cgtextures.com , tips on how to use textures can be found here - [link] and for other tips check out my f.a.q - [link]

EDIT: resubmitting, because apparently it did not show up in poeple's message centers. wtf?? sorry to those who commented and faved on the other version.

hey! i actually stopped selling mouse pads because i wasn't sure of the quality. I can offer this one as a mouse pad temporarily so you can purchase one though, that's no problem :) could you send a pic of your old one to loishh@gmail.com?

I love that you draw people with dreadlocks. As a dreadie myself, it's pretty rare that I see them depicted in the artistic world.

You should sue them and have the consolation be that you make about 50% of their profit from each book

from what ive read on the company that used this art for a cover, it seems they already talked with the artist, apologized, and removed the artwork from their site. I hope this is true.

Indeed, the publishing company released a retraction and has taken the covers down. [link] (in spanish)

The swift response and apology of the company makes me believe that they comissioned a work that resulted plagiarized from another artist and had no intention into stealing Loish's art.

actually all of their covers are stolen and their apology more or less amounts to "we're sorry we got caught", IMO.

Loish, I assume you have your original editing programs, and that you do not use mediafire to download music, am I right?
