This week’s exercise for the Daily Drawing Group over at ATCsforAll.com was values so I took some time tonight to do a painting based on a vintage photo. I didn’t take it to a nice complete finish because I want to go finish watching Supernatural (recent convert!), but I did take some time to give the vintage lady a big blast of color…. and an awesome pink hat. This is what I love about painting digitally. I can take my painting, create a new layer, and then paint over top of it and make a brand new image. Below are pics of my WIPs. I often get questions and comments about digital painting so this will show you some of the process. It’s pretty much exactly the same way I paint traditionally. Messy blobs of values that eventually firm up into known shapes.
In today’s life drawing session, I concentrated on portraits for the longer poses. I had a decent drawing day so they turned out ok. I was happy. It’s a good day when you come home with a couple of decent drawings!
