It's been a smaller delay this time while I sorted out some gallery work and began to ramp up to the March Modok Madness for 2013. I've still been drawing a fair amount too, just sluggish to post much of anything up. To rectify that I'm gonna post up these studies I painted in photoshop.
Probably the biggest epiphanies came from that first set of Ryan Church paint demos I saw. Granted he was painting in Painter (not Photoshop) but, his approach to the process was revolutionary for me to look at and implement. From then on I watched (and rewatched) samples of Seiler, Chiu, Bluhm, Zhu, and countless others just looking at how people paint and digitally. Picking up habits that worked along the way, and trying new things.
|Both of these lines were made with the same brush, using Black.|
- So manage those layers while trying to keep them at a minimum.
- You CAN do a whole lot with that basic round brush.
- It's much easier on your eyes to interface with a workspace that is midtone.
- Check your values, and remember that you can always add color later.
Hope you dig,
