Photoshop Dad, step by step . . .

Hey all, I'm back!!! I had a great time with my wife and kid, it's good to get away for a while. I didn't get much of any sketching done, but I did finish my Sherlock Holmes piece as well as do a 16"X16" oil study of Kim Jong, I'll try and post that later today. I also started this step by step of my Dad. A little more time is needed before I'll call it finished. I'll continue to post the steps as I go. This is the first time I've ever done a photoshop painting all in photoshop. Usually I sketch first in my sketchbook, scan it in and go from there. With this, I just started drawing with my Wacom tablet, this is about an hour and a half to two hours worth of work.

For some reason that last image link isn't working. Saw it work at I know it was cool, but not working at home. Talked to Jer and wasn't working for him either. Might want to re-upload that one..

Oh...Jer wants to talk too, give a call when you can!!!

I quite like the unfinished look. Really draws attention to the detail of the face.

Funny...if you did nothing about the last image, again I see it on my desk's eMac this morning...weird. Looks good!

Thank you everyone, really glad you like it. I will keep an unfinished look after all the good feedback I recieved, however I do want to adjust and work out a couple areas, thank you for your input!

Thank you Marco, my Dad once told me that all a painting is, is one brush stroke next to another brush stroke. The values, hue, and the intensity of the color are of course important, but all in all, I really try to break it down to its most simple form.

Welcome back, good to see updates here again! :)
I love the PS painting of your dad. That smile is so personalized, and there's something about the eyes. Like they're proudly saying "that's my son". :)

Absolutely love this painting !! Love your work. Your dad, I am sure will treasure it.
Had a major conversation with friends last night about the tech age....computers, iPods, text msg, iTunes, etc...vs...older ways of communication and using artistic talent. Then I see this and know for sure all the advances can only enhance a talent, and all the IM's or Texts can only add to learning about others.....otherwise I would not be able to see this.
Glad you had a great trip.. Welcome Back.

Muffin, thank you, the look on my Dad is actually a look of "this is awesome" It's from a picture I took of him steering a boat in Alaskan waters this last summer, we had a great time!

Thank you Judy. I prefer to paint traditionally over digitally, but if I do paint digitally I work hard to make it look like I painted it traditionally, I try to lose the digital look, if I can. Sometimes I'm more successful than others. So I understand where you are coming from.

OMGoodness, Its Larry!! I love it Jason. I suppose if you get mad at your father you can paint him looking rather silly and out of proportion.... lol

Your a very good artist.
