Latest Update: Coloring WIP: Actual painting

I'm just a noobie with no art theory background at all and no artistic eduction, so every post in my thread inspires me like hell!!! Here comes my test of digipainting masters head. Yeah - I enlarged the image and then added color over the blurry old-one. Not like Linda 'Enayla' Bergkvist, not even close, but still, I'm trying :)

Coloring WIP: first painting experience aiptek 12000

Just wanted to try, any ideas, help, comments?

You're choice of colour is great. My only crit is it seems a little cramped. If you pull the pov back a little and give the image a little "air" around the character it might improve the composition. That's my thoughts so far. Looking good, best of luck.

great attempt but i dont know if the colours you're using is a great choice. it looks like you have the whole colour spectrum in your image which is jarring to the eyes. heres a great link for a colour scheme generator that can potentially help: hope this is helpful and goodluck

Hi Victim335, good pencilwork there. I would recommend you work very generally on the colour / values before going into a lot of detail like you have with your latest. The trouble with doing it in full detail mode from scratch is that you might get 70% done then realise that you need to drastically alter something in order to make it work. And that would be a pain!

My advice would be to do a value study first. Have your pencil drawing in a multiply layer above the one you put colour into. Values will help your painting read well. Your first colour attempt did not read at all, everything was a blindingly strong element in the overall, which you sought to prevent through detailing his head out. So, fill the canvas with a 50% grey, then work out if you want the pic to be predominantly dark or light. If dark, then take say a 20% grey and swab it over the majority of the pic, all the areas in shade. Think big areas, not individual objects. Then take an 80% grey (nearer to white) and pick out the areas where light would be falling directly. Then within each of the value areas you can define a local range of light to dark, because value is about relationship - in a dark area, 'white' would still be a dark grey, but still lighter than anything else in this area. Check my thread because I have done a couple of these value studies.

I would suggest getting the pic to work in black and white first, then you can put another layer on top, set to 'color' and begin to swab colour into it (I only recently did this step, and it always needs more work to get it to look right). Hope that didn't bore you, good luck and I'll check back soon!

Like the pencil art! I agree with the other crit tho'. Try using fewer hues/colors...maybe some more earth tones in the parts that are meant to background props?

and thanks for the crits on my pic =)
