Farmer Enjoying the View - Digital Painting With Process Photos
Hi everyone, I'm back now after some time off posting. I have been working on some digital work after I finally got the pen pressure sensitivity working again on my tablet and would like to share this piece and the process with you today.
I start with the very basic base colours for the piece.
I then paint the black and white tones of the piece as you can see in the image below. I used some brushes to get the texture of the mountains, grass and the ripples in the water. As the mountains get further away I make them lighter in color.
I use a multiply setting on the layer so that it merges with the color layer below like this
I then paint the base colours for a house in the fore ground to make the composition a little more interesting.
I apply the same method to the house aswell. I also an overlay layer with a light yellow color to paint some highlights where the sun touches the house and the mountains.
Create the base colors for this farmer figure.
To finish the piece I add shading and highlights to him as I did with the other parts of the painting and then paint small details such as the birds in the sky.
I am currently working on my concept art skills and want to practice painting from imagination and using references. This one was done from imagination over several hours.
