Thanks everyone for the chance to show my work again. Glad to be back with the koinup gang all over again. Also sorry to those who have to re-favor any pictures but look at it on the bright side I do not have 10 pages of them (yet) Very excited to be back and post new work and try to do much better than before. Hopefully get to meet more of you in the future and help make Koinup an even more amazing place than it already is. So keep up the great work everyone and thanks again for welcoming me back.

Hi!

Briefly:
You are invited to attend the first second life exhibition for don hosho.. showing his digital painting portraits!

Time:
Friday 15th Aug 2008 | 2:00 p.m. SLT.


Details:
A noob was standing in a life concert at the cafe, back in October, 2006. And while he was caming .. he liked some scene, and no one has imagined this noob is a real life illustrator. No one imagined too that his real life is full of drawing sketches in place.. and paint them later.

As any life painter, he was refusing to paint out of nature.. even when he had clients in real life asking him to paint them, he never accepted photos ... but at that day.. he felt he has to paint what he sees..
Yes, it is a virtual world, not a real world, but .. there is something natural behind all these pixlated masks, and dolls..

A crazy idea came to my mind, the concept of the pixlated painter that paints pixlated subjects and people, by his real life hand using pixlated mediums.. and to be the first classic painter in second life .. as my first digital painting is dated back to 30 oct. 2006! and it is in the exhibition .. and it was for a beatiful lady standing in the cafe, listening to the life music there..

Digital painting is an emerging art form in which traditional painting techniques such as watercolor, oils, impasto, etc. are applied using digital tools by means of a computer, a digitizing tablet and stylus, and software. Traditional painting is painting with a physical medium as opposed to a more modern style like digital.
More: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_painting

I have lived the life of Edgar Degas for about 2 years, painting portraits and making money through painting portraits.. a life i wished to live.. I called it " SL painting " and I decided these days to make an exhibition of paintings I have commissioned or sold in world.. to share my second life experience with other second life users.

Thank you,
Don Hosho

You wanted to know how to make avs look realistic....good lighting in the first place helps..I can give you a very good preset if you would like, that reflects the av in the best light....obviously a good skin also helps....and then if you have access to some sort of blurring and cloning tools after downloading the initial image you can get away with murder..blurring softens the hard av lines and cloning can be used to remove bits that shouldn't be there lol. Even better if you have dodge and burn tools (lighten and darken) you can bring out highlights and shadows. But the blurring...wow...can make something very dodgy look great!!! Hope this helps, its most basic and maybe some can tell you all sorts of wonderful tricks but its a good start xxx
