Anna's Dream: Triptych by Brokenopenseed Anna's Dream: Triptych by Brokenopenseed

A triptych based on a friends dream: "The earth is covered in water. The water is filled with broken glass. It is beautiful, but it hurts."

My research and study of comics is beginning to influence my work, but I still have a long way to go before I'll be making comics.

If your "research and study of comics is beginning to influence [your] work", I'd say you're studying the right stuff. And if you haven't seen that movie, I'd recommend it.

Wait, what movie?

All together looks impressive!

Thank you. I'm currently learning a few things with photoshop and adobe illustrator and will be formatting them into more of a comic feel because that was my original intent for them.

Try MyPaint, as well (it's freeware, costs nothing), I guess you might like it; MyPaint brushes make great textures. It doesn't replace Photoshop, but it's a good addition. Photoshop is great for layering and masking, but when you try to paint - I mean with brush or aerobrush - everything looks so flat! For someone who is good in traditional techniques, like you, this can be unbearable.

I just downloaded MyPaint. Some really cool stuff. I would say it's perfect except that I can't figure out if I can change the image size. That would be a huge bummer If that's not an option. Let me know what you know about this.

Thanks again.

In MyPaint you work on unlimited canvas, you can scroll in any direction as you paint and you'll never get to a border; at the moment you save the file, the used area is saved and this is when pixel dimensions are set. Sure it may be tricky to get the initial size of a drawing just right; but if you like to start from a sketch, then it's easy. My favourite metod is like this: 1) I scan a sketch or I get some initial drawing from any other software, in the rigt size. 2) I save as PNG and open this PNG in MyPaint. 3)I draw on a new layer (or many layers), I save as ORA in meantime. 4) When finished, I save as "separate PNG file per each transparent layer" (I'm not sure how exactly this option is called in English, but you'll find it in file formats list) 5)I open all my numbered PNGs in Photoshop and I put them as layers to one PSD file, then I can still play with blending modes or hue/saturation or sth else.

I will have to check that out at some point. Currently I use Twisted Brush (free version). It's not great for brushes or masking, but it's phenomenally easy to use layers (many layers if you aren't using a dumpy computer like me(at least it was with the last version, I don't know if they've updated/changed it since 3 years ago).

So I need to check Twisted Brush, I don't know it. Thanks for a tip.
