more silent hill by Neil-Googe more silent hill by Neil-Googe
ok more silent hill (see last post)

god this stuff sucks :)

now this was the absolute first thing i ever ever colored in photoshop... was the first time i'd got my hands on a mac and a copy of photoshop... and it shows... but... because of that, it does have some sentimental value and so i'm still quite fond of it :)

so this is about.... 8 maybe 9 years old and was drawn in biro (as was all of silent hill)

ended up being part of the graphic novel, even though it was only a test for the book

Oh my, I love that stitchy-grainy border! For your very first time coloring in PS, it looks wonderful! Very detailed and shaded nicely. Great flashlight effect too. More lovely SH1 stuff I see, and the nurses are as scary as ever. I had always thought these ones were the scariest out of all of them in the series, just due to the fact that they seem much more human in a way. I miss the doctors too. Good work here!

Tell me, do you know what happened to the graphic novel this was supposed to be a part of? The fanbase has been trying to get their hands on it for years now.

ok... i will tell you... i do know.... and it got buried...

basically, due politics within konami... the graphic novel got shelved where it has sat finished ever since and will now never see the light of day as IDW has the rights to publish comics now...

i will try and post more up... if i can find the files... over the next few months :)

Whoa! If they would really look like that in the game...Harry would probably pee his pants.
This is awesome! You made the nurses and doctors look really scary. :D

Thank you, I appreciate it. :)

And I know you're older than me, I keep forgetting that when I compare my works to others... They've got so much more experience than I have and more techniques.

Have you gone to college at all for this? Or is this all from just trial-and-error and in your free time?

no college for me.... mostly trial and error and a lot of free time, i bought a lot of comics that i liked the art on and books of artists i like and whenever i got stuck or i wasn't sure how to do something i looked at how they did it...

over time you'll develop a style unique to yourself so long as you don't use one artist as a point of reference, sure you can compare my work to various artists... but i get compared to lots of different artists at times, thats because different people will spot the similarities to different artists... otherwise you'll just end up a weak copy of them...

which you see a lot.... artists that look like a bad version of jim lee, or joe mad, or mike mignola... or any one of a million manga artists... so long as you you take reference and use lots of different artists as inspiration, you'll never be a weak clone...

some people frown on this way of learning.... but strangely you can usually see the major influences in those people.... learn from a teacher, learn from experience and reference, its both the same.... or teach yourself with no help.... but it will take you ten times longer :)

Yep, I know, I don't compare as like style-wise or anything like that, just the overall quality and how they're composed and stuff like that.

I've heard I already have my own unique style, I just need to make my style look more presentable. And I know, I've been comparing my work to a lot of artists and just looking at several things and whatnot.

Lol, I've been teaching myself with no help in the past, but recently I've been trying to learn different ways and look at how other people do certain things, just to get an idea of where to start. :)

Thank you for the reply though, I appreciate it! :D
