@00:48Ha! Yes, it's not wrong to do, just not good for developing an eye for color for when you don't have reference directly

After answering oodles of questions about my painting process I thought this was the best way to respond. A couple weeks ago I posted 2 items called Mentoring Exercise 1 and 2 as a way to try to encourage an understanding of light and color. This is a better explanation of my thoughts on the matter. Visuals are worth more than words. Enjoy!

I will post more if you think this is beneficial.

Been very torn between blending ability of Painter and the natural look of paint in ArtRage.

I love your technique!

...but I'm finding I can't get what I want in either ArtRage or Painter...
Have you played around with ArtRage? Any tips for using your technique with it?
Reply
:iconjermilex:
jermilex Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013  Professional Filmographer
yes, it does take awhile to find a good workflow. I have not used ArtRage yet, so I can't give you any pointers. Just keep playing with it. Maybe you can find videos of other people painting as well that might shed some light on new workflows and you might find one you like.

Been trying to color without reference and usually end up stumped. Time to go back to still life then! :D with color. My art class started and ended with grey scale because of time constraint. :|

Thanks for the video!

you're most welcome. i hope it was helpful. Yes, painting in color is a different beast than just grey scale. I'm not a fan of starting with grey scale actually. it trains your brain to ignore color and then it's very hard to get it back. I say start with color and learn to see what you're actually seeing and train your brain correctly. My 2 cents

I'm thinking of trying painter instead of photoshop.
The blending looks different in painter.

Or is there some objects that help more than others.

I've found out that... cooked steaks are hard to paint ahaha.

:iconjermilex:
jermilex Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013  Professional Filmographer
Yes, paint everything and anything. Each object will provide it's own challenges and teach you about light. Any tranluscent surfaces are always fun and complex, like fruit and vegetables. Try transparent and reflective objects as well (metal and glass). Just keep creating!

:D Rock on~

Also, I tried out blocking things out with a smaller pencil rather than with a biiig brush like I usually do, and I think it's helping me be able to better define forms when I'm painting over my sketch. I kept losing my definitions every time I painted, so this is a hugeee happy moment of "Eureka!" :D Thank you so much again!

WOAH!
Quite impressive result! o___o
Well I was thought of using this method in general and I can't even do it other way then block colours first. And now you showed me that I just need much MOOOORE practice to get it better. (and defenitely more copy of pictures for digital practice).
Really..this is just absolutely impressing how well you got those little details. I never have the patience to go into SUCH little details, yet I see now how THAT is what gives the final touch and makes the picture come alive! *u*

I think I'm kind of the person who doesn't have patience for details, thanks for proving me what they mean, and show me how it can be added and still keep it fresh and alive!
