Barnabas Collins of Collinwood Manor by Sketched-Nightmares Barnabas Collins of Collinwood Manor by Sketched-Nightmares
Barnabas Collins of Collinwood.

I did this in gimp, with some specialize techniques I have created to create photorealistic results for Eye catching drawings..

The base model picture is not stock, I created it myself. It is the Collinwood manor foyer, with Barnabas in a Portrait pose. This took 8 hours to create.

Gimp is a tool. Its only as good as your knowledge base of the product. Gimp can do most of what Photoshop does. I have both products, I just use gimp more often than Photoshop. the one thing I will say is this.. Learn to work in Layers...

yeah. I downloaded the program, but it doesn't come with instructions. I'll try to do some more research on it. Do you use a wacom pen?

yes I do . I have a bamboo connect tablet. It makes a major difference. I do work in layers, and I also understand the tools of gimp, the many filters. They make a difference in what you do, Working in layers, and putting different parts of your work in layers, makes a huge huge difference. I also am a creator in Imvu, and I develop meshes and products for Imvu. One of my major areas of interest is animation. My background is computer science, and graphic design. My grandmother was also an artist.

That is the next thing I need to get. Most of my art is hand drawn then altered on the computer. It is not easy to draw with a mouse, so a bamboo tablet is my next investment.
