Hello People of Conceptart. I am the newbie that loves to ask questions
I am still practicing the anatomy stuff I told you I was going to (currently working on head angles and improving a lot with loomis ball method). But I am aslo trying to learn how to paint with a tablet . I mostly want to learn to paint realistic humans with a tablet on a digital medium. My goal is to one day paint something like this:http://mythicsonofgod.deviantart.com...51341754&qo=93
Practice is the key of course.
However I am aconfused on the"when,how and what to practice part". Because I don't know how to start or the steps to follow (I don't want to try run before learning to crawl as a baby lol, as I always do).For instance I tried to paint skin with my limited knowledge on blending (cartoony character)http://mythicsonofgod.deviantart.com...csonofgod&qo=0, but I think it's obvious for me that I lack some previous knowledge I should have had mastered before attempting this one(don't know wich knowledge however).There is so much information on the net about digital painting I don't even know where to start! or when I should have previous knowledge before trying something new.
I would like to start from the very basics before going for complex stuff. I heard that the best way is learn to shade basic shapes on black and white and then learn color theory and apply it, what do you think?.
I would appreciate a lot if you could guide me a bit on what to practice and the steps (the order I would have to learn stuff) I should follow inorder to learn how to digitally paint.
note the only traditional medium I have acces right now is watercolors :/ (Altough I would take a tablet over them any day).But if you guys think traditional mediums are essential, I would give them a shot again .
Thank you and best regards!
