Gordon Tarpley Studies
Had a little time this weekend to noodle around instead of working.

More noodling. quick studies from reference photos

nice work,.. I get a feeling you didn't use a lot of pen pressure transparency?... The colors seem opaque and laid out correctly,.. am I wrong?... also,.. is this a made brush or a photoshop standards?
I'm trying to learn this stuff and get better at it... I like your style and approach...keep'm coming :)

Hey kyote! Thank you!
For these I've been generally using 100% opacity brush that is just a flattened chalk brush, (standard photohshop)
I set the brush angle to "initial direction"
It's a new way of painting for me but I like the way the brush works so I'm trying to get used to it.

There are a few spots here an there where I use a standard chalk brush with pen controlled opacity but I'm trying to use that very little.
Hope that helps.
I'll add some details to my next posts too.
Thanks again!

Another quick study of some mountains.

Time for a change of pace. I'm thinking that upcoming doodles will have some foliage.

Hello Gordon,
really nice!!! Btw. personally I like that non-opacity style, even it makes a little bit illustration-touch. I assume its a good practice/analysis technique
