Our favorites day 8-10
I had a strange wave of nostalgia for the wooden bathtubs of my childhood.
I received a couple of asks from different people about things like my painting process / tips so I’ve included a process GIF in this post. This is painted in Photoshop; I started painting using Photoshop around March this year but my overall process hasn’t changed much from when I painted mostly using SAI. Here’s a quick rundown of what you’re looking at:
- I sketch out whatever it is and then set that layer to multiply.
- Underneath I fill out an area (usually it’s the whole canvas, this time it’s just where the figure/grass is) using a solid colour. On top of that I blob out colours using the default hard round brush set to pen pressure opacity 100%. Sometimes I also use the default soft round brush.
- I start painting on top of the line layer. I make sure I can tell what everything is supposed to be before getting rid of the line layer. (I used to — and sometimes still do — leave the line layer on and paint completely over it but this is a waste of time in general if the line layer is messy. Depending on the complexity of the drawing sometimes I do cleaner lines; these usually stay on because they’re actually helpful in the painting process.)
- Keep on painting until done.
As for tips:
- Don’t worry too much about which brush to use. If you’re not sure, use the defaults. Don’t worry about settings, either. There aren’t any “right” settings. Play around, be daring. Neither the brush nor the brush settings are what will paint the painting.
- Try to use the largest brush size possible for whatever it is you’re trying to do. It helps in defining shapes, especially during the early stages.
- Zoom out and establish what it is you’re painting before zooming in and doing details.
- When choosing colours try to choose as much for saturation and brightness as hue. That is, don’t just think, “this needs to be green”, think: “this needs to be a dark desaturated green because it’s in the shadows, and I need it to contrast with a lighter object in front of it”.
I was also asked about advice on creating moods in paintings. I think the overall mood of any piece is established by pretty much every element in the work. There might be a few elements that stand out more (for instance, the urgency of the line, or the distance between two objects in the composition, or the position of sunlight on a figure) … but just like with painting in general there’s not really a formulaic way to go about it that would be the same for every piece and work for everyone. If you’re having trouble with mood I suggest looking at scenes from movies, or photographs, or paintings — choose ones that you think work for you and analyse what they’re doing. What’s the colour palette? Where is the light coming from? How is the light falling on the figure (if any)? What are we shown in the scene and what is implied (consider the difference between being able to see someone’s face and only being able to see the back of a head)? What’s the camera angle, and what does it suggest? What about body language?
Then you might want to do this in reverse. Think about a scenario (any scenario, take one from your daily life) and think about how you’d draw it. Take for instance waiting for the train at the subway. Is it crowded? Or is there only one person on the platform? What are the lights like? White LEDs or orange bulbs in a smoky haze? Ask yourself lots of questions!
(It is kind of embarrasing writing tips and advice so to ease my embarrassment I’d like to stress that most of these tips are related to how I like to do things and may be total rubbish.)
Also, Tumblr apparently allows replies on secondary blogs now, woohoo.
