You can find all reference images on my pinterest board…Alright, now LET’S DO THIS!
This marvelous little program is just brilliant and it has the potential to quickly become a must-have tool for any digital painter with a traditional backround. Why? Rebelle is simply unrivaled when it comes to watercolor simulation. Over the last 5 years I’ve been beta testing many tools like moxi, expressii and others, and none of them matches Rebelle’s quality and ease of use. Furthermore its’ stabilty and price make buying this piece of software a no-brainer. Without hesitation I’d love to recommend getting Rebelle, which really takes traditional painting simulation to a whole new level. Make sure you check out their demo and support the authors of this incredible application.
I shouldn’t call this a study, simply because it was a random doodle to relax. I’m looking forward to finish this one day. Also it’s nice to find some time for non-website related image magic and posting! Feels good, damnit 😉 …
All refs taken from Alien (1979)… more studies to come. This is fun!
Edit: I added a couple of last minute fixes: usually I dont fix my mistakes even when I see them. Thats a bad habit and I’ll try to polish all studies more from now on or at least dont be so sloppy about it.
