"Speed" Painting

Patterns are for Suckers

Title: Patterns are for Suckers
Date: July 9, 2013
Medium: Photoshop
Scale: Same as Above.

Notes: So... this started out as just a quick "speed" painting... but delved into more or less a pattern study.  And can I say... THAT PATTERN WAS A PAIN IN THE ASS! At first I was tempted to just do a square brush and just copy it over and over, but that would essentially cheat me of actually getting some detailed patterning in. So then I thought, maybe I'll just trace the coat from the original and just keep moving... That would ALSO be a waste of time. I ended up going block by block, some of course messier than others, but I was determined to get that damn pattern at least halfway translated. Either way, I loved painting the pants and shoes!
The unfortunate side effect is that it went from an hour long study to about 3ish...

Forgot... The tutorial!

  1. Watch 'dem proportions. Head is out of scale. The pattern reads just fine, but I would think it would move more with the form of the hoodie. Square tool and transform, aww yeah.
