would you say its easier too paint in photoshop or traditonally?  
Miles-Johnston's avatar
Good question! Digital is certainly faster and a little easier in a whole bunch of ways but oils has something about it that makes it a little more interesting to look at imo, its juicier and better for blending. However I'd say digital is easier in almost all respects for a study like this :)

Do you keep them on separate layers the entire time? When I work on multiple layers for digital paintings, I find it hard to make objects and the environment look like they're in the same painting, not as if each is a cut out placed on top of each other? I'm not sure if I'm explaining this very well. Anyway, you avoid that problem so I'm just wondering.

Yeah I know what you're talking about, I hate that cutout look too, looks pretty cheap. It helps to spend some time working with traditional media to remind yourself that things like layers are shortcuts and not neccessities. People made insanely complicated paintings all on a flat canvas for hundreds of years, and edges often get overlooked because of the layer tool. To avoid it I merge everything for the final 30 mins or so once I'm sure I won't be moving anything too major :)

Helps quite a bit to be frank. Just what I needed.
