Wounded Janus by Suilenroc Wounded Janus by Suilenroc
Gods may not die
But they can suffer
diminished belief,
suffering less worship
a calculation of grief.

We don't know what this one is about either. :no:

Interesting technique...can't quite grasp it[yet]-I mean, process it, as in, where my brain wants to catagorize it-stylistically. ?-A Cipher...*smiles*

We thanks you for your comments. We have been trying to be a little experimental with Our "style" - in fact - ever since you said you thought We were developing one! :crazy:

We like the lightness / precision that some obtain with digital works so We thought We'd give it a go. :hug:

Suilenroc Featured By Owner May 29, 2007
Thanks. As you asked nicely here is a concise-ish explanation of the techniques We used.

Using Painter9 and Wacom tablet.
We laid down a couple of gradients in different layers set to gel composite deleted parts, flattened to canvas.
Used distortion tool set : hurricane brush to mix up the resultant gradient a bit.
Added New layer used Pen tool, (nervous pen set to large) with colour black and sketched a kinda face form (well the chin / mouth area).
Freeform sketching for other "faces".
Set layer to darken - changed percentage opacity a bit.
Duplicated layer and erased some bits to give tonal differences. Flattened all again.
Dodged and burned using Photo tools set pens, highlighting and darkening to taste.
Changed back to distortion pen set : thin distorto and played around a bit more. More Photo dodging and burning.
New layer for colour touches - set to colourize compositing method - splashed a few colours around using Acrylic paint tool and colour wheel. Some % erasing to restore colours in specific image areas. Flattened image again.
Finally added some fine ink pen lines and the colour wash for the teeth and the "blood" down the chin.

All told about an hour from blank screen to posting on DA. We think it was harder to remember and write it down here! :phew:

We are entirely self taught and learn through experimentation and errors. Sometimes We take the image into Photoshop and play around in there too - especially when too dark (start again with Auto Levels) and ocassional dips into the filter library for inspiration or complexity. But We don't like Photoshop that much.

Hope this helps :salute:
