Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a new file and creating color study, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- In this case study,…I want to paint a digital painting.…And my favorite way to start a digital painting…is to do very loose and imaginative color studies.…And for that, the first thing we are going to do…is to open a new file.…The size here pretty much fits my screen size,…and that's absolutely okay.…I will zoom in to 100%.…And now, the goal is…to create a quick vision…based on color design for our painting.…
And I don't want to start this…completely without direction.…I already have a theme in mind…for my digital painting,…and a theme always helps at the first step.…And the theme is…the white palace on the red planet.…So, we see that in this theme,…we already have colors.…So, we might just start with the color red.…Let's just pick a really standard red here.…
And what I'm going to do now…is simply put color on the canvas…and just observe where it takes me.…So this is our red.…And we already have a lot of white here around,…so the white palace might be covered with that.…But, what about the word planet?…The white palace on the red planet.…
