Color Practice & Artists to Follow ||Schite in culoare si Artisti de urmarit


Good morning everyone!

I’m busily working on a new exciting graphic novel, which I am very anxious to tell you all about very soon! Until then, here are some color practices that I try to do as often as I can. Understanding and mastering color and light is, hands down, the most challenging issue of my practice.


Buna dimineata!

Lucrez de zor la un nou roman grafic despre care abia astept sa va dezvalui mai multe detalii! Pana atunci insa, imi resuscitez blogul cu niste schite digitale in culoare pe care incerc sa le fac cat de des pot. Lumina si culoarea pentru mine sunt, fara doar si poate, cele mai dificil de stapanit elemente.



From this point onward, I’ve focused my practice on working with solid color (hard round edge brushes in Photoshop with opacity and flow set to 100) and rough, simple shapes. Many artists are using this method as it forces you to concentrate on choosing and understanding what colors to use.

De aici incolo, veti vedea ca am inceput sa realizez schite in culori solide (pensulele de baza din Photoshop setate la opacitate si flow maxim) si forme simple. Multi artisti folosesc aceasta metoda, pe care o recomand si eu, deoarece te forteaza sa te concentrezi pe ce culori sa alegi si cum sa le intelegi.

Now, since I’m mostly at the beginning experimenting with this new method, here are the two awesome artists who can best prove the efficiency of this practice: Robh Ruppel and Hannes (aka Algenpfledger) both of them high-brow artists in the concept art, animation and game design industries. The level of realism achieved with a few shapes and brush strokes is outstanding. Behold:


Acum, deoarece eu sunt abia la inceput cu practicatul acestei metode, va fac cunostinta cu doi artisti digitali umitori care va pot face dovada eficientei ei: Robh Ruppel si Hannes (pe internet cunoscut ca Algenpfledger), amandoi lucreaza in industria artei conceptuale, animatiei si designului de jocuri video. Realismul pe care il obtin din cateva forme si pensulatii este incredibil:
