Learn to think like a painter and render images that look like they were created with oils or acrylics, using the latest digital artist's tools. Author and artist John Derry introduces the process of interpreting a photograph into a painted work of art. He begins by explaining his system of visual vocabularies, which describe how to replace the visual characteristics of a photograph with that of expressive painting, and also shares the custom brush sets and actions he uses to achieve these results in Adobe Photoshop. The course also covers working with filters, layers, effects, and more to add further detail and texture.
OK. So, I'm going to go ahead now and complete this underpainting, and then I'll see you on the other side. OK, so I'm finished now with my underpainting, and as you can see it is very simple. if somebody walked in the room and haven't seen the image, they might look at this and, well I guess they could tell it's a building, but it would be kind of like, what's that? Whereas we've been working with this and we know pretty closely what the image is.
So, we recognize it but you can still see that it is very much of a pretty much flat representation of all of these kind of key compositional elements in it. Now, one thing I want to mention and I failed to do this when I started painting, is, I don't have texture enabled on my brush at this point. It's going to become a little bit more important in the intermediate phase to enable texture, and the reason I'm telling you that is, that by not employing texture in the underpainting, when I do start to apply texture as an intermediate step, the fact that that texture has more detail in it, it starts to make those areas appear a little bit more prominent.
And we'll get into seeing how texture is a valuable component of the intermediate step that we'll be looking at in the next video.
