BW test - Photoshop x Sai by kasai BW test - Photoshop x Sai by kasai
Its been a loooooong time since I've done these kinds of paintings. Thought I'd give it a go once more in both programs.

I like to squeeze and turn the brush in photoshop but it seems Sai doesn't have that option. If anybody knows how to do this in Sai, please let me know!

They were just created on the spot. No name but probably had a backstory at one point.

Great, love the SAi (don't know what it stands for:/ ) skip the coloring. Black and white is timeless :)

Wicked awesome. I think I like the Photoshop one better, it looks more refined.. but still has that messy digital edge that I love. xD

Great foreshortening on the guy to the right. Fantastic job on the tones as well, I get an amazing sense of real distance when I'm looking at his lower half and right leg in particular.

I do like how you were better able to capture texture on the dude to the left, though. There's a noticeable visual difference between his skin and the shoulder armor.

I really dig both of them, great job. ;D

So which "feels" better for you?

I perfer to sketch in sai, it feels more like traditional drawing to me ( I guess >.> ). I never got the hang of sketching in PS so I guess I'm a little biased. . .

These are really badass, man. The fella holding the sword has a bit of a short right arm, but other than that, I totally dig 'em.

great character design, and nice poses too. not easy to draw a character at that angle. photo reference?

Only thing referenced was the face on the astro dude. I performed the same expression in the mirror :D
I used the second thumb above the astronaut and up scaled it. The cool thing about working in thumbs first, is you can tackle things like perspective, foreshortening, silhouette and/or design before commiting to a larger size.
