Handler's Corner Daycare Colo by DCAW Handler's Corner Daycare Colo by DCAW
Tadaaa, I proudly present you the Handler's Corner Daycare, featuring all our favourite characters of Hotwheels Battle Force 5.

Usually I'm more into photography and such, but lately it's been nagging me to no end, that I simply don't know how to use my tablet and PSE for - well, anything except photo manipulation.

When I stumbled upon the lineart of ~SkyeBlitz I decided to finally give it a try.

This project was really a blast! First I thought this'll take me forever, but after I got the hang of it, I just couldn't stop until it was done. My poor laptop, tablet and hand will go on a well deserved break now. ;)
On a last note: the colors might look a bit off. My monitor hasn't been calibrated in ages.
Bad artist, no cookies!

Things I learned from this project:

- different shading techniques
- more effective use of layers
- which tools to use for smooth transitions
- Skills come with practice (Yay!)

Things I want to improve:

- how to create different skin types (worked fairly well with Agura; worked not so much with the Cortez brothers and Zoom)
- understand the effect of light sources (Spinner looks like he had a run-in with the Phantom of the Opera)
- how to handle the tablet pen (color gradient, size gradient and I'm supposed to hold it upright)
- patience (very!)


tl;dr: Enjoy, everyone!


Base by: !Emiggax
Lineart by: ~SkyeBlitz (thanks for letting me use this!!!)
Tools: Wacom bamboo, Photoshop Elements 6
Time: 7 hrs ?

Sage is zapping Krytus with... uh, idk, electro shocks or something. Well, but she could as well be freezing him. I'm not so sure about her special powers. Haha.
(Yay, people start noticing the pics. I'm so happy, so happy... :dance: )

Thanks for the fave and comment. It's much appreciated.

I have actually tried to do what Spinner is doing...Drawing on a sleeping person xD Too bad all I had was a blue-inked pen that didn't work so well, so it didn't work out.

lolol good work :3

No problem :3

Make sure you have something that works (like a washable marker) if you ever decide 'Hey, I wanna draw on a sleeping person!' xD

Ha, you're right. I only got the really good ideas when I was already done with Agura. I like to think she'd draw somehing sports-related? ;)

Yay, finally someone noticed the little pics I gave them! I put so much thought into this! :3 After I had Vert's house and Agura's butterfly I thought it was boring and aimed for more personal motives, lol.
Tezz is drawing a magnetic field, btw. ;)

Oh yes, poor Sage ;)
That's why she gave them paper and crayons, so that they are occupied... at least for a while.

You could always try GIMP. I heard it's similar to Photoshop.

I'd like to get photoshop since I have monkeyed with it before but I have no idea where to buy it and I don't feel like downloading it off the internet XD

DCAW Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
You can buy it from Adobe directly. I'm also 50% sure they send you a CD. Otherwise downloading has always worked nicely for me (by that I mean: legal downloading where I paid for it first :floating:). I simply keep the file on a CD or a flash drive, so if the program crashes I always have a back-up.
Hm, apart from that you could try amazon or your local computer& electronics store?

Oh, Adobe also offers teacher and student versions that are less expensive than the regular versions. You might want to check those out before buying anything.

I don't buy anything online if I can help it. I'll have to check Frys or someplace. Thanks for the tip on the teacher and student versions. I'll have to look into that.
