Digital Painting Time Lapse on the ipad


ladies and gentlemen!!! welcome, welcome.
My name is Erlson, and I love to draw. Today I’m gonna walk you through my painting
process and approach to taking a traditional pen and ink sketch all the
way to a finished painting. my reason for making this video is not only to
encourage every artist out there to sketch, but also to advise you to keep
all your sketches because you never know when you might be inspired to take that
to the next level so without further ado let’s do this!!! I began with the traditional sketch done
in a moleskin pocket sketchbook. I initially used a ballpoint pen for the
underdrawing, then I inked the main line work with a pentel brush pen. Sadly I
didn’t get a chance to take a photo of the construction lines before moving in
with the brush pen but if you analyze the drawing more carefully you’ll see
traces of the underdrawing in the finished sketch. And for those of you who
are having a bit of a hard time seeing the construction lines, I’m gonna make it
a little easier for you. There you go! You’re welcome!!!
A couple of months later I finally decided to add color to the image but I
had to alter the image just a little bit before moving over to Autodesk
SketchBook. My goal was to get the white of the paper to be as white as possible
without compromising the integrity of my line work. If I were using Photoshop I
would normally use the levels or the curves adjuster to get the same effect,
but in this case I had to use the built-in photo editor on my iPhone. Once
I was done tweaking the image, I moved over to Autodesk SketchBook; and before I
continue with the video I just want to say that Autodesk is a free digital
painting software downloadable on your phone, computer, and tablet
it may not be anywhere near as powerful as Photoshop but it’s definitely worth a
try. At this point I filled each individual
item with its respective color. Using the hue saturation slider, I was able to
quickly try out different colors without exhausting the undo button. You can
basically call this the coloring book phase of the process; all I’m doing here
is filling each shape with flat colors. this stage will set the tone of the
final image so I need to choose my colors wisely; I need to be completely
satisfied with my colors before moving on with the image. once I was done filling the flat shapes
I introduced some basic shadow on a new layer. I put the blending mode on multiply and kept the opacity fairly low. You can call
this the cell shading phase of the process I decided to add a bunch of ukuleles in
the background to indicate more context behind the character; please keep in mind
that I wasn’t trying to be realistic in my rendition of the background; think of
it as more of a decorative backdrop finally I painted on top of the entire
image. My goal here was to unify all the different elements. I also softened a lot
of the edges between the shadow and light, added some tiny details here and
there, and I even added some music notes in the background for some Flair; and
there you go the final painting, complete!!! I really want to thank you if you made
