This is a tutorial where I will paint some landscape
along with structures image. For this one I will use my good old, out of
production Wacom Graphire 4
. So for the users who have no tablet will be difficult to paint this, but I do know people who
spend weeks painting really master pieces with a mouse.
So let's go:
I've taken a document with 1024x700
Every artist does the thing differently, but the more ways to realize a painting you will know - the better and easier it
will be only for you. I often start from grayscale sketch and then drop the colors - I think you can value the tones better
this way. But now I will start with colors. Use basic dry media PS standard brush.
Very roughly - just to define the colors and maybe some shape areas:
Colors bring life and mood to picture - so do try some to define the better color variation.
So the background tone is ready - I would like to paint over some foreground elements. Do it with a basic 1px - 3px
Os this is some king of a warehouse here.
To separate it from background (ground) use lighter colors to paint the ground with.
Begin to detail some elements:
Try to use different colors for smallest details- the colors that have most contrast. Well actually this going intuitive.
Soft brush is great for lighting.
Refining the picture (the brush gets smaller and smaller).
Flipping the image - specially when you're dealing with environments, I a great thing to do during your process. The eye gets
used to what you're [painting. Moreover you really get to see all the mistakes you did. So just flip it several times and
look at it for couple of seconds.
