Whats up with the fish?

gatewatcher said:

DSM's fishes are amazing. i tried to make a DSM-style devil fish and i just couldn't nail all the effects he can do. i just got so fed up i just painted everything with normal colors and no effects. except for the eyes, those have a little color effect in them.

Putting down the effects and details require a lot of fidgeting with individual pixels and experimentation with colour tones.

Patience and concentration is the key...oh yeah and then some cool music playing while working :-)

Heh, you should get a graphics tablet. I use mine all the time and came up with my old fish (before blockfish) in 20 minutes tops.

They really do rule.

How exactly do use a graphics tablet? I don't think I'm too familiar with that. But it would be nice to have one if they really do make it easier to do kickass art.

Damnit, I want my own fish...like...a fish with dreadlocks and a cigarette in its mouth and looking all pissed off.

Just like using a normal pencil... select the opacitsy (sp?) of the tool like you would the hardness of a pencil and draw directly onto your screen, running the stylus over the same area a couple of times and crosshatching for shading.
