Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Painting the foreground: Part 1, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- Now that we have organized our…illustration on separate layouts,…we can start painting and I will work on each…of these layers individually…and I will actually turn off the other layers…and the white of the background…is a little bit too distracting.…I'm choosing black here, put it in the background.…Now I can concentrate on my foreground layer…so the first thing I'm going to do is…to refine the contour here…because I have created it with the lesser tool,…it is very clean, like cut out with a knife…and I want it to become a little bit more painterly…and for that, I unlock the transparency of the pixels…and just paint along the lines here…and the fact that I'm using a brush with a bristle quality…helps me to create a more painterly edge here.…
Actually, I want to show you how to…start the painting of a nature structure…like these rocks here with just two colors.…So I will eliminate this light color here…because we basically had three different colors here,…the midtone, the darker violet tone and this light tone here…
