    Wow. I have been useing photoshop to paint for a couple of years now. I feel like I learned how to paint backwards. I tend to use soft brushes to blend I cannot get the same look with hard brushes.

    By the way Im kinda new here

    Chuck, did you use a soft brush to render it? it looks way out of focus. this thread (and the other) were focused more on blending brush strokes made with a hard brush (no alias).

    also the other thread Digital Painting in PS #2 is the updated thread that people actually are working with. this is an old outdated one.

    hope this helps!

    My shitty first attempt at digital painting.

    My first attempt at an apple with a shitty glitchy mouse and a little determination. Had some issues with blending, but I'm getting the hang of blocking and some minor details. Any tips pls message me or reply to this. BTW Look at my horse. It's amazing.
    I also had no reference. So it made it waaaaaaaay harder. altogether it took 2 hours.

    Is it just me, or are the pictures missing from the OP? Seeing as I don't know how to render at all, I'm guessing they'd make it a whole lot easier.


    Thanks.

    Here's my first attempt at painting something in photoshop since getting my Intuos4 for Christmas....

    This is one of the first times I've broken through the starting stage of blocking in colour. I usually think I'm not getting the right shapes/tones and just give up but this time I stuck it out and I'm pretty happy with it.

    I'm sorry but I STILL don't understand this method :'(
    I usually just block down a few colours and smudge them together but it creates a very flat look. I've been searching EVERYWHERE for a better method but half the time I just can't understand what I'm supposed to do
    So could someone please break it down for me as simply as possible?

    First time 'sketching' with my wacom tablet. Followed the steps outlined in this thread and I was pleased. The banana was sitting on the table to the left of my laptop, wacom to the right. Took about 30 minutes.

    Digital painting in PS

    JustSheena - the way I interpret this, the blocking of color just keeps getting smaller and smaller until it's all blended.

    The tips I found useful - keep 2 windows open for the same document. 1 zoomed out like 25% so you can really see the whole canvas. the other zoomed in like 200% so you can add fine details where they need. Most of the work was done in the 25% window.

    Also, The tip about setting your eyedropper tool to using a larger sample area. To keep blending the image, I would sample right between the blocking areas, so the color picker would choose a good blended color, then just kept stroking the area, maybe like 20% opacity brush. With some time, I can see how this will greatly improve my art.

    You can see on the upper right side, I didn't really finish blending. Didn't do the shadow either.

    Ah, six year later and I got my wacom, but the pics of the thread are long gone....Any newer wacom thread around from these fine artists? I did not find anything else in the forum!

    Thanks all.

Just like any other medium, it's whatever works best for you.

    The whole idea was for Teigrob and me to exchange bit of our experiences in different field, she's god with animals and I have an idea how painting works in PS. So while I am trying to show her some basics, I am also trying to learn but this will definitely be more into technicality of Adobe Photoshop alternative and some of my habits as well as other tips in PS.

    It's all about colours and values as far as painting goes, I am cursed with both, so I will blab on about brushes in PS. For colours and other important fundamentals look at the stickies.
    [EDIT] check Idiot Apathy's Thread for COLOURS!! here
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=53517
    It's have lots of important stuffs in there!


    Just briefly, I did this for work but saved the steps for Teigrob. Now one thing you probably notice is there aren't any really thorough tutorial on painting PS, you see lot of steps but not the kind of tutorial most beginners have in mind. I did lot of researching on painting in PS like 2~3 years ago but could never find anything. The reason probably is because painting in is complex and there's no simple way of paiting. But you already knew that. So some steps, brushes and how to work around ps is best I can show. SO some painting steps, here's it is.

    Digital painting in PS

    Now I did it all in one layer, a bad habit in a way as you might find you are stuffed when you want to change the background. I suggest using few layers is a good idea, like the initial black lines could be on a layer underneath, unlike me who just painted over the top. It's a bad habit! I start out by throwing the colours at 50~60% and go over it if it's shadows, I don't use 100% because then I can't see where the black lines are..pretty stupid huh? WORK big and start gettting into details. Tools to avoid! Smudge tool and Blur tool. I know it's tempting but if you want to smooth out something try using a BIG brush at like 10% and sample the colour (hold alt) and paint. also avoid dodge and burn tool, if you want to lighten, paint with lighter colour and so on. Painting is simple so think simple.

    here..

    Digital painting in PS
    see? no need to smudge and you have more control. Or I am just crap with smudge tool. the bottom is with smudge tool.

    So paint in the colours first and then work your way towards details.

    Engouh ranting, I will edit this when I get home.. Going to paint an apple or something. I will go over the details with brushes..

    Thanks for your help, its really help me to rectify the problem.

    Much Much Much Much better, but more practice just for you to get the feel of the brushes in PS. Is my personal webspace down at the moment? none of my images are showing up, never happened before.. :< did you get to see my apple attempt? Better host it somewhere else. Ok back to your painting. Looks like you are getting along well with your PS, so that's good. We'll have another go at the apple again next, but this time let's try adding a tint of blue or green. Or should we limit out palette to two colours or something?

    When I want to darken certain colours, I simply hit "d" to reset my foreground and background and hit "1" for low opacity and paint over the top. The black darken it, but I think it tends to lose saturation. If that's not the colour I wanted I will then go and pick the right colour from the colour picker window. Same goes for lighter colours too. I sample a lot as I said before by holding "alt" key to blend or switch colours. This does tend to desaurate colours a lot I think so once in a while when I think it's getting a bit dull I go and get my colour again or sample it off the original ones.

    I also noted you scanned your lines in? try drawing them straight in PS, use like 5~7 size opacity 100% and just draw some lines. What size tablet do you have? it's always a bit wobbly but you get used to it.

    I think you did very well this time and you must be pleased. I am!! Ok one more apple? or orange? I will do another one when I get home tonight. but like I said let's chuck in a tint or distort the colours slightly. So you get used to grabbing colours you want. Then we can sort of look at "brush" palette, make some custom brushes. Adobe photoshop Alternative

    Fellah, hey yeah Tei's helping me with the animal.. and I am showing her how to use that brush in PS and working around in PS.

    ok.. apples and oranges to come later..
