Painting, made with my new gouache!
Thank you very, very much, sweet anon!
Hey you! I’m very, very sorry for the late reply!
I’ve never taken any (professional) art classes. And that’s maybe why I have trouble with choosing colors as well! But searching on Pinterest helps me a lot. I search for color combinations, color schemes… etc. And about shading, what I do, but there are tons of other ways, is giving the shades (on another layer in photoshop) an extra dark color. After that I change the value of it, so it kinda mixes with the other colors and at the same time it gives a nice shade. With lightening I do the same, but then I color it extra light. Oh yes, with photoshop you can change the color balance in your work so it gets for example a warmer look (youtube has some tutorials). In my opinion the different colors in my work fit more with each other when I change the color balance a bit. Hope this helps!
I love cake
Present for my mom and dad’s wedding anniversary.
Yes… I really do want to visit Venice sometime! I think it would be amazing and wonderful!
Hello dear Anon, thank you for the very, very kind words!
Now about your questions. At the moment I prefer to colour digitally, because I feel more confident that way. I really want to be more confident in traditional drawing too, though (and I just like to paint), so that’s why I sometimes try to paint something. However, sketching is something I prefer to do the traditional way.
When I colour in PS, I most of the time use a sketch I scanned in, but I sketch in PS too. After that I colour it over. Sometimes I just start to colour right away, without a sketch, but not quite often. To be honest, I have no clue how to use the lasso/pen tool!
Is this the information you need? Have a lovely day too!
It’s actually a small part of a drawing I’m currently working on.
