This was a fun commission from Gummibear!
I haven't really had a character attached to my "Lando" name since like, 2004. So he threw money at me and suggested I make a chipmunk character to fill that role

It was quite interesting trying to matte a painting into a background to create an effect similar to how it's accomplished in the movies. The background is a picture of my desk.

Edit: I tried to address some lighting and grain issues to make it fit better :3 thanks for your crits, guys!

Also: a cropped bit that I will use for my dA ID that's all depth-of-fieldy

Lando

I am happy you think that <3 it could be a bit better, but if I squint I'm satisfied with it
Danjen
7 years ago
Yeah! If you just look at the image as a whole, or not directly at him, it looks a lot like a statue or figurine as part of the desk.

IamRy

np :3 I especially like the glow under him from the tablet. it's a nice detail that makes it looks like he's actually standing on it, rather than floating in front of the background
Lando

KNIFE
7 years ago
DAMN be careful you don't scratch your tablet with those little feet claws!
The fact that you used a photo of your own desk only heightens the illusion
and if I hadn't watched you do this I would have sworn someone sent you
a sclupty statue of your character as a gift.
Either that or like Schnique said, you've been keeping secrets from us. :D *Two thumbs way up!*
Lando

I'm kinda getting a disconnect in my brain. It keeps expecting him to start moving, despite knowing it won't happen. How bizarre...

A credit to the illusion, I guess!

gopy

So many great subtle things in this!  I love how you matched the film grain with the photo elements.  Hell, you even got the reflection in the tablet down, even as far as changing the way the light scatters as the surface material changes.

You are a force of nature.
Lando
7 years ago
Thanks for noticing <3 doing the reflection was fun
Carrot
7 years ago
That's lovely!

I must say though - I feel he'd be sitting in the environment a bit more if you emphasized the light from the right monitor though.
His right side has like, the SLIGHTEST hint of it - but I think you could push it a bit more next time =)

Looks awesome though - really lovin' the vivid feel. The hoodie sits on the body really nicely.
Lando
7 years ago
Hm you're right, I really need to light him more properly. Thanks for catching that!
Lando
7 years ago
I tried to adjust the lighting some, is that any better? <3
Carrot
7 years ago
Quite a bit so ^-^!

But see if you can bring a bit more on the belly part of the sweater - rim lighting wise. And the SLIGHTEST HINT on the left leg. I think that'd do it!

Just from what you've done has really punched up the readability - good on ya bro =)
Carrot
7 years ago
Maybe even some reflective light-beads on the zipper/zipper handle thing. Light and kinda sharp~

Probably not necessary, but could be fun to try out :3

I knew it...  Lando is actually a Chipmunk!  A cute one at that.  ^_^

Awesome Job on this by the way.  Awesome job inserting your work into the picture and making it look like he is actually there.  I know that is not easy to do (i have tried).
Lando
7 years ago
Thanks Alvin! I figured, since the movies do it, why can't I?
arkaid
7 years ago
Okay, looks awesome yadda yadda yadda.

Here's how you can make it even awesomer :3

* Simon would create some ambient occlusion on the table near him. Ideally, you'd see a bit of reflection on the table, but you can fix it by running the background on photoshop and create a darker shadow there
* Noise has already been mentioned (Simon looks too crisp :3)
* I don't know how bright the cintiq is, but some light should be shining up his crotch, I think? I'm not really sure there
* Also, I'm seriously worry about the lack of penis :3~~~

Love the picture, btw :3~
Lando
7 years ago
I tried to fix some of the issues you pointed out! Lemme know if that helped it any <3

Also, it's not Simon, it's Lando! Hooray for OC's
arkaid

And yes, looks a lot better. Desktopped for truth!

Spectacular stuff. The only thing that really made me realize this was a matte was the right handpaw. Imo the contrast is a little too big there, but that's literally the only thing I can tell right now. Keep on humbling us. :3
Lando

His right or ours? :3
Gobby

Klorsis

Simon just met his match for the most hansom munk title. You did one hell of a job making him look like he belongs there!  

What camera did you use to take the picture?  The noise from the picture *really* stands out on my tv, especially under the desk.  I'd like to poke at it a little and see if I can't clean it up a bit.
Lando
7 years ago
An Olympus EP-1 at 1600 ISO and low light. I wanted to put some grain in there to have fun with the effect
Klorsis
7 years ago
It looks great on my monitors! It just looked like someone sneezed on the picture in that one particular area.  I couldn't remove the noise in that area without making it look funky, so I overlaid a black layer at 8% (I think?) transparency.  It worked out very well!

One of my co-workers just stopped by to drop something off and all he could say was that's amazing!  Over and over and over!
Lando
7 years ago
Nice! I'm glad to hear it x3 sorry it gave you such trouble
Klorsis

Actually, it's turned into a very valuable idea elsewhere!

First of all, AMAZING WORK!!!<3<3<3

Second, I'm starting drawing soon, I've already started on a sketchbook but am having trouble with how to even start a sketch!

Also, I was wondering is there's a difference between having a small wacom or those other things that use pens and a medium/large one? Or if It matters if I have a mouse to go with it and how it could help in any way.

Wow.. a lot a questions in one comment^^...
You da best!

-Freebieman104
Lando
7 years ago
Personally, I don't ever use the mouse that comes with the tablets, I use my own logitech mouse. As for the size, it's not really a big deal either way, especially as a beginner. Obviously, larger ones allow for longer strokes, but any artist can make due with a smaller size no problem :3
Freebieman104
7 years ago
I was a bit curious it looks like you quite a few music recording tools there. Are you a muscision?

P.S. can you give me a few pointers on sketching body parts using geometric shapes? I believe that's the sketching style you use. Most artists choose that style over geometric measurements.. *shivers*...math ><!
Lando
7 years ago
I don't do anything musical myself x3 I do enjoy music, however!
I'm probably not the best person to ask for advice on anatomy, since I have very little skill in that area. Mostly I just scribble and hope what comes out looks half-right.
