Years of experience / Digital Painting
Some books like 'The art of composing and framing' 'Color&light' from 'Jame Gurney' or 'Force Dynamic life drawing for animators' help me a lot to improve my skills in Digital Painting.
Facts about me
I love miyazaki movies!!! Every time a new Harry Potter came out, I re-read all books. If I could have an animal, it will be a monkey. I have travelled around the world more than 2 years. Some people say I look like 'Ross' from the series 'F•R•I•E•N•D•S'. And yeah, I love being me.
Inspiration is the first step in any creative process. If you don’t have idea immediately, turn to what inspires you, imagery, nature, films, music... It can be anything. Once you have an idea you can start to gather images that reflect your vision.
Sketches are a quick way to create the basic composition of my illustration and an excellent way to quickly explore concepts. This is an essential step in my illustration process. It will save me time to work through concepts on paper before going to the computer.
Create my reference image. Some illustrators work only from their imagination. Others, like myself, work also from reference imagery. I can quickly find what I need online. For anatomy, sometimes, I like to photograph my own images as reference.
I use Photoshop & Graphic Tablet. These are the basic tools you need to do digital painting. Everything else is a matter of creativity, clever work with tools, and some ingenuity. The same tools apply to mountains, feathers, and, well, anything.
