fantastic work
only two complaints are that the video was so fast that i didnt know what was going on and that you paint from so far away, to save time (im guessing) when you could make something greater by working more zoomed in.
9.9/10
btw, i have no idea how to paint,color theory or draw using shaps instead of line, got any tips? thx

Thanks :)

Funnily enough, there was a point when I used to upload the unsped-up video as well, but I stopped doing that because I didn't think anyone was watching them. But yeah, I tend to work zoomed out a lot as I find it easier to keep things in proportion that way, but it's a fair point that if you wanted to really refine things, you would be better to zoom in for closer control of the details. For this one of Juri, I was trying to challenge myself to do a complete painting in one day, so I was trying to do it as fast as possible.

Tips though, er... I typically use a line-drawing first as well, but if you want to use shapes for a more painterly look, try and work from big to small - like, if you're painting a character, start with the overall silhouette, then block in any big shapes on top of that (big areas of exposed skin, large armour plates, anything like that), then work down towards smaller details like the features of the face or hair highlights.

Most of the time, I can't pick colours to save myself, so I would focus on just building up the light and shadow areas first, then (assuming you're working digitally here) play around with adjustment layers until I hit on a nice colour scheme, then work it up from there. Look at photos with interesting colour combinations as well - no-one's going to call copyright infringement on you for borrowing a colour scheme.

If you want to go into it in more depth, I can recommend both Marc Brunet and Ross Tran on youtube - particularly Marc Brunet as he does a lot of good tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/user/bluefley00

thats pretty helpful,thanks

when i started digital drawing this month,i slowly began to realise that i have no idea what i was doing with regards to painting. i only had experience with drawing with pencils on paper. linework is a comfy area for me, realism just takes time and patience and soft pencil strokes. Problems with anatomy? Just use reference and patience. Proporions not quite right? Remember to go by character model.

Now add color to it and start painting....No idea, just color in the lines right? like in elementary school? Then add another layér for the shades and color that area then use the soft eraser to mimic soft lighting against shades. okay, easy. what do i do now...(stares at picture) idk. its about half done but i dont know how to make the image "pop" Somethings just not right with balance and tonality bur i have no idea how to fix it...truthfully, i just used random colors anyways and wasnt thinking about how that would effect anything...oh god, its been an hour and i havnt added anything else...What Am I Doing With My Life??!!

and thats been my drawing process for this past month

One thing that might help if you're having trouble with tones is to practice colouring in shades of grey for a while - as you're not thinking about how the colours are working, it'll help you focus on the contrast between the light and dark areas.

What software are you using, by the way? If you're using Photoshop, the gradient map filter is massively useful for experimenting with different colour palettes after you get the tones down.
