Feel free to share with your friends or download for personal use! There are many ways to paint and these are my humble thoughts. I hope you enjoy!
I went back home this Thanksgiving break and found these postcards I drew over summer. I was planning on sending them to friends but never got around to drawing enough, and now it’s winter ; ;

Here are a few bgs from Laser Light Cannon! This was the first episode I painted on and man did I learn a lot. Layout by Steven Sugar and Patrick Leger. Special shout out to Elle Michalka and Kevin Dart, for being excellent teachers (and comrades…and inspiration :D ). Check out what they’ve been posting, it’s GOOD.
CTN sketchdump! I did a lot of anxiety doodling :B
Plus a few doodles from hanging out with Seattle people after getting home :D
Why do you do this to me
There’s a reason behind color zones, but James Gurney does a much better job at explaining it than I do. Keep in mind this doesn’t cover lighting, just the local color of skin.
Although there are ‘color palettes’ here, I really wouldn’t recommend using them for your own (as in saving the image and eye dropping them) art, I did this rather quickly so this probably not very accurate. These are just my personal preferences when it comes to color. I don’t have saved palettes; I pick colors depending on the lighting or mood as I am working on a painting. BUT IF YOU WANT TO GO RIGHT AHEAD.
As for texture, lolidunno, I just use a lot of scatter brushes until it sort of looks like skin texture??? I honestly don’t worry about texture though unless it’s like a really close up view of a face or whatever. You can find my brushes here (you’ll need Photoshop CS or higher).
I am flattered that people are seeking advice from me, but keep in mind that I am still learning myself, so I am by no means the best person to be asking. Hope this helps you out though, anon!
Another one of my top favorite painters, Hakusaku pushes digital art forward with their masterful handling of the digital brush. If you would like to see just how Hakusaku puts down their strokes and creates the stunning colors, renderings, and compositions of their works, they fortunately have made their process very accessible in two ways; through either their Drawr or their Ustream channel (linked below) you can watch their process in real time, sometimes entirely from a blank canvas to the finished piece. I would highly recommend watching their recorded streams or catching a live broadcast on Ustream — a lot of my favorite work by them is best/only seen in those streams.
Note: Hakusaku’s name is sometimes written as H9S9 and 8939.
