Last time I forgot to talk about my intentions in my project :
I’d like to make a picture that looks a little bit like an old sepia photo of the XIXth century. I want it to be an old memory of the first contact between the human people and an alien civilization. It represents the exact moment that would change the life of billions people, a moment that disappears because of time injuries…
Based on my line art, I started to make colours, in order to create a hot and dry atmosphere, like in desert for ex. I set my drawing in a transparent blending mode, then I chose a background color, and start painting the volume of the object.I use a simple brush (50% opacity) and my eraser (30%).
After that, I add a new color to make first shadows and reinforce volumes. I search a color that will be colder than background, but not too cold just not to break the ambience ( no violet, or cyan, or pure black : great Titian said that black is blue ).
Voila voila …
PS : thank you for your encouragements, Mr Teknotek83, and good luck to you.
