My First Digital Painting

My First Digital PaintingSketching.

Sketch should be obviously performed with low-resolution image with 72 dpi, a clear reason for the speed. It's important to remember that if the sketch is completed faster, then the result would be better (this usually applies to me).

Stop in every few strokes of a sketch is the key to gain this part of creating a great digital painting. Can many times, can also one-time scratches. Avoid wasting time on details of the sketch so that we can be more quickly completed.

My First Digital PaintingAfter the sketch is completed and has been generated, I think you better directly convey ideas in your head, portrayed using Photoshop.

Determine the volume of pictures, learn the source of light that illuminate the subject. Use the tip of the brush 50% flat gray.

Color transition, canceation, zoom in and out, etc... so my left hand on the keyboard at any time while the right hand uses the mouse produce a painting. This could accelerate the process of creation.

My First Digital PaintingAdjust the brush size and ofcourse it depends on the amount of detail of each area, do this continually until we get a fit with what we want.

Zoom to 300%, to facilitate our eyes to see things that even the smallest, ease of working on small details.


At this point, I add color to the so far still B & W portrait. Using one of the most powerful features of Photoshop, Adjustment layers, I could experiment with different color schemes until I found the one I'm looking for.

An advantage of using this method is that I can change colors at any time, without having to repaint every part of the illustration.
