Painting Gold - Digital Art Tutorial

Thu Oct 18, 2018, 1:29 AM




This month DigArt Challenge theme is "GOLD", so I've decided to create tutorial for painting a shiny golden textures!




analyse the colours

First, we need to find some references for various golden surfaces. They should be both polished and rough. I've used free photos from Unsplash as my references.
Gold-tutorial-colours by LenamoArt Basic tone is orange/yellow. It's quite saturated. Reflected light is usually cool and desaturated. Notice that shadow is never black, and highlight is never white. Keep this in mind while painting.

Base


1. Draw a basic flat shape.
2. Add shadow using soft brush at 20% flow.
3. Add highlight using soft brush at 20% flow..
4. Add reflected light using soft brush at 20% flow.

This unfortunately is not enough to create an object that will look like the one made of gold. The sphere looks plastic and matte, instead of metal and shiny. We need to create a texture.

texture


1. Take a shaded base.
2. Use a messy spotted brush at 50% flow to break smooth texture.
3. Add some random lines using soft edge brush at 50% flow to create scratches. Keep in mind the shape of the object you're drawing. Straight scratch on a sphere will be curved.
4. Use dark shadow colour and hard edge brush on 50% flow to make the scratches look deeper. Add a highlights on the edges.

Better, but it still lacks this shine we're aiming for!

Overlay spark

 
1. Take a textured shape.
2. Create an Overlay layer and use light, desaturated yellow to enhance highlighted area with a soft brush at 20% flow.
3. Use spotted brush at 50% flow to create some random highlights. Use light, desaturated yellow on highlighted area, and desaturated blue and green on reflected light area.
4. Create additional highlight in the shadowed area using saturated yellow colour, and soft brush on 20% flow.

And that's it!
It's a pretty, shiny golden texture!

Hello guys!
Today is the last the when you can get the "Under Control" course and join the group of people who wants to take their art on the next level!


I really believe that the ability to create a solid concept is the key that opens a lot of art and job opportunities. During the course you will learn art fundamentals to paint more eye-catching artworks from scratch and avoid many frustrating mistakes.
