Your art is so, so good! 😭 Have you ever made any tutorials or filmed a speedpaint? I'd love to see how you get to work, your colors are always so vibrant and I love the texture effect of your painting style 🙏
hi, i’m not sure how old this message is bc my life has been extra hectic in the past months but hello again.
i’ve never done tutorials before since art is only a hobby for me… it’s a bit complicated 2 teach anything if you’ve got no idea what you’re doing.
it’s more of a fail but try again method whilst only taking into consideration my own mistakes and… not studying it on a bigger scale – like, studying from others or picking up guides.
anyway, here’s a basic rundown on how my stuff is usually done:
let’s break it down, i’m using mostly kyle’s brushes which are god-like and please if you’ve got some money 2 spare please buy them, they’re incredible.
my favourite one is sketch pencil rough 2 which comes from kyle’s dry media pack, it is the one i’ve used in the example above!
ooh, here we go.
first step – sketch? lousy shapes, forms… anything. something like guidelines for me 2 follow through. it is on a separate layer, though.
(p.s. at times i do everything on one layer! which is just me colouring in between the sketch lines and defining it more, at times, may even skip this step & simply go 2 step three which is colour blocking.)
second step – creating a simple silhouette that helps me 2 pinpoint weird stuff, also helps to see how well the drawing reads, in this case, it’s bad (oops.)
third step – colour blocking, nothing more. i don’t know anything about colour theory & i’m truly ashamed of that fact. i usually pick colours that just… catch my eye.
fourth step – rendering; it’s either me deleting guidelines and drawing further or me merging all layers and… drawing further, wowie.
final result bc i gave up, sorry! but yeah, that’s all 2 it! take care.
