nice, as always. But i always wonder: do you mostly do low opacity or low flow for shading? I always feel, like colors loose their colorness when painting with low flow, but with low opacity it is like a felt tip. What do your recommend? I wonder if you could make a kindoff "making off" of these. I always wonder, if you just start with a shape of color, or if you make a pre-sketch. Whatever thx
ok. So i wonder do you use simply a new layer with "color" mode, or do you make your drawing, set it to multiply, and then put a colored layer under it. I always have the feel, that layers, that use "color" mode will ruin the values you established before.. I often just made stuff just with max 14% flow and sometimes just 1%. But it seems, as if you cannot achive nice contrast, with low flow ( quite logical, since there is less "pigment" brought to the paper). It feels as it must be done with more specific color and higher flow. thx for answer!
It really depends, I try each layer mode until I get the desired result. I often use also levels for setting contrast and color balance for making an overall coloration. I'm afraid I can't really describe how do I do it.. I'm just experimenting a lot
yea i also often do a colour correction and gamma curve etc layers at the end. But the problem i have with that is, that if you want to use the colour picker then on the artwork again, all these correction layers will correct this color once again, which often causes the picked colour to be brighter/different, from what you want. All found out to fix this is to flat down the image onto 1 layer, but i dont like that, because its often annoying, since you would want to do stuff inbetween some objects in the picture later on.
I love the contrast between the solid bold details and the softness, and then when you think you've seen all of it, you notice the subtle details that give it just the perfect texture. I love that because I am one of those people that if I ever met a dragon, I'd reach out to touch it.
