eta: Beta found, thanks!
I am very new to the art side of things, I haven't even posted anything yet. But I'd like to; I'm currently working on a prompt from the Triple Play Challenge at ohsam. Unfortunately, my muses ran rampant and now I'm a little stuck with gimp. So I'd love to talk to someone about their experiences with creating gifs there. Specifically, is there any way to avoid the mode switch to 'indexed' from RGB? Because that just about slaughters the whole thing (which you experienced people probably were already aware of but I wasn't). Grayscales are fine quality wise, but I'd love to keep it colored.
Also, I'm currently at 100+ layers for the background alone - the muses, I'm telling you - and that makes the .xcf file huge and veeery slow to work with. Not only do I still need to tweak the whole thing to smooth it out, but I also need to add the actual foreground sequence with the characters so now I'm thinking about doing that in a second file and merging both of them in the end, probably by creating a new layergroup for every single background layer. Has anyone done that kind of thing before or knows the problems I'm talking about? I'm sure there must be easier ways to do this, so any advice would be highly appreciated.
Dear mods, I have no idea about tagging this or if this is even the right place to ask these things so I'm sorry for all mistakes I probably made.
Is it a WIP or not?WIP.
What medium/technique did you use? Pencils. From HB to deep shadows done with 5B.
Is this technique new for you? More or less, since I'm aiming for different things this time around. Less of a comic-style feeling and more semi-realism.
What resources/references did you use? Some reference picture I found floating around the internet. If you need it, I'll go search for it and link it here.
What would you like advise on? How do I make my picture look like Castiel and not some random guy in a trenchcoat? So mostly I'm interested in the facial features. I have yet to smooth things out, do proper shading and add highlights and deepen shadows but there's just something off about the face that dries me a little crazy.
Thanks so much in advance for your help! ♥
