Explanation Tutorials / Tips + Advice  

This section is where you can find worded and simply detailed explanations and advice on some topics provided by me.
These will be quite wordy and picture demonstration will often be provided.

Feedback is welcome.

(Before you read any topic I want to state that I am by no means a professional. I am an amateur artist still learning. Please do not use these tutorials / explanations as diehard methods.  There are other ways to do things in art this is simply just an explanation on my way to help anyone who is curious or might need it.)


Color / Light Sources


If you have ever taken an art class you might know color affects the feeling, emotions and overall mood of a painting.  I’m not going to go to deep into that but I want to make the point that your color usage can be important.  
I want to explain about applying the usage of color to your works.

Part 1:
Like a Star @ heaven  Difference between using Black/White & Dodge/Burn vs. Color usage on DP
Like a Star @ heaven What is a light source? How is it helpful?

Part 2:
Like a Star @ heaven Types of color. How should I use them?
Like a Star @ heaven Practice with light source.

*Working on part 2

Part 1 :


Dodge/ Burn & Black/White vs. Colors

First, I want to say that when doing a DP edit (or something original) it’s very tempting to want to use something along the lines of the burn/dodge tool or even using black and white to shade / tint.

But, I want you to know that there are other ways to add depth other than the colors black and white.

Below are some very lose and quick examples of the face only. Left using black and white with burn and dodge, Right using different shades of red, brown, blue, purple, yellow and some pink.
Like a Star @ heaven Original Screenie Like a Star @ heaven



As you can see they both look and feel very different from one another. I want to quickly say that neither side is a right or wrong way. but for the sake of the tutorial we will be looking more towards the right side.

Start by paying close attention to how they feel different.  Personally, The one on the Left gives a more bold impression as to where the one on the right is more delicate. Keep in kind that style and the different variations in color also have a lot to do with this.  

Also if you look at the right you notice we have a sense of depth going on. As if she's more than just a flat face.

Know what goes hand- on - hand with depth? Light sources.

Light source and Shadows

What is a light source?

In very simple terms, A light source is the direction in which the light is coming from in your artwork.

Where your light source is located will affect the placement of shadows, highlights, and reflections etc. in your work.

If you do DP art ( or even original ) You may be wondering " Why do I need to know / use this? "

You don't exactly need to, but it can come in handy. Here's a short simple list of some of the things your light source can affect:

Shadows /High lights
The mood/ feeling
Colors

I can go more into detail on this in part 2 but for right now let's look back at our example from before and try to find the light source.

Below on the left shows you where the light is coming from ( arrow ) and where it's hitting ( red )
On the Right hand side we see where the shadows are placed.


Remember were keeping this very simplified but, hopefully you get the idea.



Conclusion of part 1

Color usage affects the over all mood and feeling of your artwork and is in turn an important aspect.

Using colors can help give you a certain sense of depth and help you achieve a better understand of your art.

A light source, just like color can also affect the mood of your art work and in turn can better your understanding of depth, and shadows.  
Part 2:

* In the middle of working and adding information to this section as I go.
This part of the topic is going to be based a little more on practice. I'll be giving you prompts to think about, and small areas where you yourself can try things for yourself. Everything is by all means optional, but here if you'd like to try .

Color

In part 1 we talked about how color is important. I want to briefly cover Primary & Secondary Colors, Analogous Colors, Monochromatic Colors, Warm & Cool Colors, and finally add a little bit more to the Light Source topic.

Primary and Secondary Colors.

I'm sure some where you have heard about primary and secondary colors So I'm just going to skim the top of the water on this one.


Primary Colors are 3 pigments that can not be made by mixing any of the other colors together.  They instead, are mixed together to make what we call Secondary Colors. These are made by mixing the primary colors. For example, Blue + Yellow = Green.  Green is there for a secondary color. Let's move on from this to color schemes.

Color Schemes

It affects the feeling, the over all mood that your're tying to display.
Well, Not only does color do that but it can bring a sense of " wholeness" to your work. You might be wondering what I mean and how that matters to you.
Some colors work with each other well and over all compliment one another. and no, we aren't taking about complementary colors. That's a whole-nother ball game that we will get into in a bit.

I'm talking about Analogous Colors.
These are colors that are neighbors and sit beside each other on the color-wheel. They work in Harmony to give a sense of completion.
P.S. Another way to achieve harmony is repetition to have unity. Such as repeating colors and textures.

Below I have made up a sample of Analogous Colors.

Do you see how well they work with each other? Green - blue green - Blue  for example.

When and how could these colors be used? When deciding color scheme, Backgrounds, etc.

This Color scheme is fairly easy to pull off and gives you that little bit of contrast between each other.

Ok up next is Monochromatic Colors
These color are archived when you take a base color and then add white or back to the color.
This is probably one of the most simple and easy color schemes to do.


You can't go wrong. It's quick, easy on the eyes and great to use when needing to shade / tint anything.
The con to this is there is not so much contrast between these colors.
