Artists Introductions  - 
 
A great artist and friend has opened up a class for learning digital painting . He does fantastic photo realistic work .I highly recommend the class . Not sure if it's in english . But maybe you could use Google translation if you don't speak Spanish ;-)

Rough Google Translation from the site ;" In the online course introduction to digital painting will have the opportunity for a great artist in both traditional and digital media, as is Alberto Perucha , we enter into this exciting world, sharing his experience in two fabulous master classes, and teaching us techniques and tricks to start making our first works of art from scratch . Ideal both for those who have no experience with these tools and want to start, and for those who have some knowledge but want to deepen and enhance your artistic side, learning from an artist and teacher in the middle.
Moreover, the art historian, graphic and web designer, and professor of Cultural Management 2.0 and 3.0, José Barcia, teach us to learn to move around the work environment, and to have the rudiments of digital design , which will help us to begin to work in our art work."

I'm still a bit confused by deviantart's layout  ! I hate it ! I'm not sure how your supposed to go directly to the free stock photos . Other than a convoluted search . If anyone knows how you go directly to free stock photos there clue me in . Isn't there a group or section for it ? I know they have a separate website that has stock photos but I'm looking for their on site free stock sets .

+Marvin Hayes  Its not hard really. Its like shopping in a 3 story building of your favorite things. There is just sooo much in it, and I usually get side-tracked and end up somewhere completely different than I intended to, then on my way back to where  I was going originally, I get side-tracked again. After checking out all the fun stuff I find on my way to the original destination, I just get wore out, lol

Thanks for the invite ! ;-) My oil painting called Chivalry A Magpie like bird flirtatiously picks up a feather dropped by a Cockatoo . While another bird gets jealous .A love triangle the Magpie is trying to woo the Cockatoo . While the parrot gets all in a fuss ! ;-) The feather represents Chivalry ( like handing back a dropped handkerchief ) 
Acrylic black and white under painting with color oil over glaze .About 24x36 inches?
Bought by a professional artists wife who got tire of waiting for her husband to paint a bird picture for her ( ironic considering the story in the painting ;-) The artist was very good would have liked to see what his bird painting would have looked like in comparison to mine . The buyer had several large tropical birds . One of which she placed on my arm . A huge amazon parrot . I said something about hoping he's not a biter . She said something like "no he bites " ;-O I was being very still after that ;-| 

Sub references ; The Cockatoo being nearly pure white is representative of innocence , purity . The Magpie is sort of the opposite a scavenger , the opportunist and here also the intruder . The other 3rD wheel is the poser a flamboyant extrovert . Really a typical love triangle. 
Also the fruit is supposed to be the suitors previous attempts to woo the Cockatoo with unfruitful gifts ;-)
The flow of the composition is in a circular loop that flows from the Cockatoo then points to the right bird and back down through the vine back up through the Magpies tail and then starts over again  . More like a left leaning u shape composition .

One of the coolest art tools I've seen in eons !
It draws solid lines in the air !
 
OK, I can't wait to get my hands on this tool-  free-hand sculpting in the air, using just a large pen-shaped tool?  wow, crazy.  still some time left to get in on the kickstarter funding and get your hands on one before they're in full production.

Here's the original and my painting . I used 3 brush setting a regular brush nothing special then a textured brush and blend brush just to smooth things out a little . Mostly used a regular brush about 80% of the time. All done on one layer . So this could have been done with any graphics program. I used Corel Photopaint though .Took me about 10 to 12 hours . I did most of it in inverted color then inverted it back after being about 80% finished . Then did the finer details .

Diogo Santos has been promoted to moderator ! Moderators have about the same abilities as the host or founder of the group which would be Stephanie ;-) But here we mostly make decisions as a group  . So it's best to ask around before making decisions that effect the group as a whole . At least ask Stephanie ;-) 
Moderators are picked by interactivity with the group . Whether they are here most of the time and how personable they are . How much they provide help to others. So if you are not a moderator yet it is just a matter of being helpful present and friendly ;-) 
So welcome Diogo Santos to the team ;-)

This is my steps to completion of the water image . The first step was just sketching the lines , shapes on the most predominant color blue ( inverted to orange ) . I used a grid to make it easier ( grid not shown ) no other measurements except for the size of the frame . Both the original and the final piece were the exact same size . So everything was even including the grid . The colors were taken from samples via the eyedropper selection tool . About a dozen samples . I also used more samples of color as I went . The whole thing was done in inverted color ( not seen here ) .Maybe I should have shown it that way but I thought it would just be confusing .Just imagine the first 5 steps as inverted colors ( Negative colors ) Then I inverted the image back to a positive and continued to refine the image . I think it's showing the steps in the wrong order they are marked correctly by their number though . Everything was painted on one layer . I usually use one layer per object . This has one object ( water ;-) The reason I started this in inverted color was to forget that I was painting water . It's better to see it as simply pure shapes , tones and color .It's easier to forget it's water when it's bright orange ;-) Normally I would have went on and refined it until it was nearly impossible to tell it from the original .That would have taken about a third longer to finish . In all it took at least 10 to 12 hours but I don't pay that much attention to time . Normally I would take about 15 to 20 hours on this .

Thanks +Stephanie Valentin Mostly it's using a graph to see where things are , sampling color from the original then determination and patience . The things are find difficult are creating something new . Copying I have no problem with ;-) I'm good at figuring out concepts but doing anatomy I need a lot of work on if I have to create it without a reference . Mostly because I've avoided it so long . Never had that much interest in doing people till recently .

Introduction
You have found the correct Marvin Hayes the rest are merely clones , facsimiles , imitations ,  impostors or  substandard .
If I have not circled you it's probably because I can't . Google in their finite whizdumb has put a limit on circling . 5000 might seem like a lot until you reach 4999 and you can only circle one more person ! ;-/ 
I would like to circle every clever , talented , intelligent , beautiful person out there unfortunately there is no room lefty on the ark sorry ! ;-/ Your going to have to catch the next boat :-|

Don't believe the circles number on the right . It's a lie ! In order for you to feel left out thinking there is still seats on board . When in fact we're all filled up ! No really ! ..... Shoo ! .....Go talk to the man behind the curtain ! >Google
Bragging rights
Got 25,000 hit / views in one week on a photo of a broken squash ! And I didn't even use a camera ! I shoved it in my flat bed scanner ;-)
