Ok so I have a wacom intuos pro. ( which has pen pressure set to change size) and my photoshop is unused till now. my layer opacity is 100%, my layer fill is 100%, and my brush opacity is set to 100%. but when I try to draw black it shows as if the opacity is at 50%. plz help!
Hmm strange... The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is checking to see if the "Flow" is set to 100% also. It's near the Brush Opacity setting. If not that, try checking to make sure you are in the correct "mode" which is the setting under image>mode (then make sure you're either in CMYK or RGB). Let me know if it's still giving you problems
Beautiful work; what really popped out to me were the designs of the crowns. If you don't mind my asking, how did you come up with the design for them? I can see that the basic shape is that of the show's, but the gorgeous little details on the sides are a really nice touch.
Thank you! You're right in that I used the show's design for the crowns as inspiration. I knew that I wanted to make the crowns more ornate right from the get go. I drafted a few crowns with an organic feel and ended up liking the ones you see here. I made Celestia's crown more woody and Luna's more billowy and cloud like
You know it's pro when there's so much thought in it. I love it! The difference in how they're looking into the distance, and the colour pallets, and shape, the focus area, etc.. Although, personally, I liked it better without all the extra additions you made. I think that they make it... too busy...
