Blend it: Lighting for BeginnersTutorial Tuesdays
Hi there! In this tutorial, we're going to take a look at something we all struggle with - lighting. After reviewing the basics, we will analyse several common lighting situations and share some useful resources to help you with further learning.
This tutorial is a part of our new monthly series at CRPhotomanipulation - and we're looking forward to delivering some great content! Let's start!
First things first - let's take a look at the anatomy of light and shadow.
On the image you can see above, there are several terms that you should remember - each of these elements is essential to creating realistic images. Firstly - the light here comes from our upper left side, hence why on the very top of the ball you can see a highlight (1). The transition from the part of the ball covered with light to the part covered with shadow starts at the terminator (2) (k
A Guide to Timed StudiesDigital Art Week
In this guide I'd like to introduce you to timed studies, including a guide on how to effectively do timed practise studies, as well as some do's and don'ts.
What is a timed study?
A timed study is exactly what the name suggests: a painting study done during a set time. That time limit can be anything from a few seconds to an hour or two, depending on what it is you want to practise. "Study" can mean: 1) from a reference image and/or 2) preparatory drawing for a "full" piece (to practise a certain element of the future artwork or as a way to experiment before beginning the "real" artwork). Usually reference images are involved, but composition or value studies are often done from the imagination.
A few examples of different types of studies:
Tuesday Tips: Let's organize those ValuesHello everyone SarcasmNymph here with another Tuesday Tips! DanielaIvanova suggested today's topic. And today we will talk about how to use values to help make a beautiful composition in your painting. This Tuesday Tips will be the climax of the previous two I have written: Painting with Values and Seeing the True Value of a Color. However, if you haven't read those last two, while they will help you apply today's techniques, they aren't strictly necessary. So let's refresh real quick:
One last time, what are values?
Value refers to the lightness/illumination of the hue you are painting with. White patches are the highest values and pitch black darkness are the lowest values. An efficient way to see the color val

... because there is always more!
[ If you missed Part I, you can read it here. ]
Better get something to drink, and perhaps a snack, because this one is a touch longer and also a slightly heavier read than the first part. Alas, it's still 65 pages shorter than the 'Beginner's Guide' mentioned in Part I, so I guess my claim of this being a TL;DR version still holds up.
That said, clean your screens and let's get into it!
What's this about then?
This is not so much a step-by-step ‘how to paint’ tutorial, as it is a tutorial about the various steps each painting tends to take, from the choice of canvas size to layer distribution, colour picking and final adjustments. But of course, a few tips and tricks about painting are in here, too.
There are many different ways of painting something, so I urge you to experiment; play around, try stuff, because that is the only way for you to fin
