Keep It Simple

Posted 16 days ago

Wow ~ Through the Past ~ back to the Beginning of my Digital Artwork.

I felt like last night's 'Gold' painting looked more like shiny colored Glass. I felt like giving in to some simple, not based on seeing, formula to paint Gold. That needed a Gradient.

No gradient in Fresco. I don't think there's one in Procreate either. So where was that? Where did i used to make Gradients? Photoshop? No ~ I never got in to really Painting in Photoshop. Aha! Back to Art Studio. The very first app that I used to use ~ haha ~ get this ~ i actually used to suffer through Art Studio At Gigs! with those rubber tipped balloony pens.

So now, not only all the choices for Colors and Opacities and other Properties and BrusheS, I realized that we can also jump back and forth through apps.

I pulled last night's background into Art Studio, and I made the simplest Gradient with the simplest hilights and shadows ~ nothing about real reflections ~ and it looks Gold. What I was aiming for.

Lesson? If I'm making stuff up out of my head, Keep It Simple. On the other hand, if im Really Looking at An Object, then I can really notice the surprising nuances that are Really there.

Aeesha

I did it! After yesterday's post, I went back into the Gold Painting tonight. To really make it Glow. I feel successfully accomplished. I applied my studies about making the Gold glow, and it worked. New Digital tools for traditional Art Skills. I painted it with the Fresco app.

and while I was at it, I also fixed the Likeness. I was only focused on the Gold last night, but i figured that Likeness is important too. Afterall, I am a Caricature Artist.

Following is what I had written yesterday. I'm really looking forwarding to seeing this Post because I'm planning on posting yesterday's unfinished Painting right next to tonight's finished one.

Yeow. Could this b too hard for me? Frustrated when I started this Painting.

I felt icked out by all the Gold. And her deadpan expressions (Aeesha from Guardians of the Galaxy). But worst of all, Not my favorite type of Lighting. She's practically always Backlit. Who wants to paint That??

and, not having been set-up to make things easy for an Artist, she also has 2ndary lighting. From The Top!! Don't we always use Rembrandt Lighting?

But i did it anyway. Just started getting good, I feel like I can paint anything. I just started to be able to impose my previous Gold Studies on it, when i said "Why am i staying up all night doing this?"

Maybe I'll work on it again someday.

I even made the Lit Up throne behind Aeesha. To account for the aghk back-lighting. Wow ~ I am feeling so accomplished. This feels so satisfying
