i got multiple questions about this, so i’ll just answer it on this ask
sorry i kept putting it off for so long…
so… i guess i would think of what kind of sky i would want
i like sunsets, so i’ll draw that
so i start with the very back color; it’s a dull purple
my intent is to go from purple/dark grey->peach/pink
i like to use this fuzzy brush
not sure what to call these… the ‘back’ / ‘dark’ clouds?
i put on random splotches at 40~50% opacity of dark blue around the edges
i’m going to put my light source at the bottom right, so i put a rusty orange color slightly at 10~20% opacity
then i blended the colors before i started to add more colors
the more you blend, the better the picture will look 8)
now i put my pen at around size 8-10 to put in thin areas of peach/gold where the light will hit at around 60% opacity
color it where ever you think it looks good
i like to adjust my colors and edit on sai
on an overlay layer on top of the drawing, i airbrushed so dark blue in at the top left and right
then near the end i like to use the combination of lower brightness and higher contrast
i’ll put a video later since my explanation is horrible most of the time…
sorry i put the drawing sideways… it wouldn’t fit
try these drawings for reference…
maybe use the eyedropper and use colors from these?
hope that helps
this is for the multiple color asks received
I was on the toilet with that last ask I answered so I decided to actually sit and try to help the best way I can. Anon, I’m still in an art rut especially with anatomy and I’m totally not the best with it, but let me link all of you to some things I like to look at on my spare time.
I don’t have any anatomy art books, so I wouldn’t know who to recommend, but I DO have a lot of youtube videos I watch. Here’s some that might prove usefeul::
How to Draw: Foreshortening with the Coil Technique
How to draw twisting forms
My favorite books that I have on hand to practice gestures/anatomy with ARE MY HOLY BIBLES.
This one has a wide variety of body types and therefore is my fav…the chubs….>:3
The main idea to keep your gestures from looking stiff is to remember the line of action
ALSO SERIOUSLY JUST GOOGLE ANYTHING from man butts to back to arms to head angles if you cannot sit in a figure drawing class like me. Here’s a short gif of my process to sketching a quick figure
I’M STILL LEARNING MYSELF and it’s fun to practice with friends!! I also enjoy playing around with styles, majorly disney artists such as glen keane
Edit: Pixelovely is a good gesture drawing site
你需要準備吸管、剪刀、刀片、釘書機、墨水。You’ll need straw, scissors, knife, stapler and ink.
1.把吸管壓平。 Flatten a straw.
2.將兩邊剪掉一點。 Cut off two side of the straw.
3.因為吸管防水，寫字時表面張力會干擾墨水流出，所以要在內側用刀片輕輕的刮幾下製造幾道溝槽。We know straws are waterproof, which means surface tension will jamming the ink when writing. Gently scratching inside of the straw with knife to make few groove.
4.用釘書機釘起來。 Staple the straw.
5.從後端注入墨水，一次不要太多，不然會漏。 Inject few drop of ink. Don’t inject too much or it will leak.
Done!! You can starting your creation now!
You’ll need tape, scissors, knife, disposable chopsticks, empty aluminium can, stapler and ink.
Calligraphy Pen for Gothic: cut the aluminium into two pieces like above and tape it on chopstick, then Staple the aluminium.
Medium Point Calligraphy Pen: Fold a piece of aluminim, and cut it like picture above. Then tape it on chopstick.
Fine Point Calligraphy Pen: Fold a piece of aluminim, and cut it like picture above. Then tape it on chopstick.
Now enjoy it :)
