First A Couple of General Notes
you are using any of the paint tools you must set your presets prior to choosing
your color or it will revert back to the default color
|This can be done with a Wacom tablet or with a mouse.The settings are all approximate as each person will use a different amount of pressure or a firmer or softer stroke.Also remember the undo is a very important tool and you will need lots of patience. A lot of steps seem repetitive but when you are trying to achieve a certain look you may have to try several different tools to get the look you want.So it is kind of a back and forth process.(which is where the patience comes in)|
to Save often, once you save - clear your undo history.
Also most all the settings specified in this tut are done with the brush panel.So once you set your Preset.....all other settings can be done from the brush panel.
in Mode versus not|
Please note that you may find it much easier to manipulate your painting if you were to paint in object mode.
Advantages to painting in mode is that you can paint a little bit at a time making it an object. If you decide later on down the line that you don't like that particular tree in that spot but it might look better on the other side of the canvas, you can simply move it over.
It also makes it easier should you require to blend certain aspects of your painting
1 of 2|
Let's get started
used a canvas approximately 500 by 375
the transparency this high you can easily blend your colors by overlapping and
making a second pass if necessary.
have started with a deep blue
you should have something similar to this picture
|using top color(blue) charcoal brush (preset default) size 30 tran 70-90 depending again on your touch.....gently make edges uneven in sky (I also touched up water a bit )|
using 2nd color(deep pink) add more uneven edges into yellow and blue
only color to 2nd color from top(deep pink) do the same|
and then leaving all settings except the transparency increase trans to about 85 run a little into the yellow
to the yellow and trans back to about 65 darken your yellow by running over top|
then changing only transparency to about 85 run across upper part of water to lighten
Brush Preset fog|
trans 85 use the 2nd color (deep pink)(maybe a little darker) run along the black line making several passes and then make a couple of passes across entire sky and 2/3 of water
Split 3 Color Black |
brush size about 25w 25h and brush head size 50
random set at about 30%
Define your tree line
change size to 10 straight line and draw your straight horizon line beneath the trees
Now would be a good time to save your work and
