The Color Survival Guide
This course is one I kind of revisit very regularly and learn something every time.
Hi. Before I get this course. I was wondering if it contains any section that explains how I could apply this in tandem with Color values. Would really appreciate if anyone can provide an answer.
My attempt at Chapter 1's complementary pallette exercise. Being limited to just 'two colours' allowed me to really think about the warmer/cooler relationships. I thought Marco's explanation of how he used a greater variety of less saturated purples vs a smaller variety of more saturated yellows very helpful as it got me thinking about value and contrast. I found it difficult to also build in readability using textures and having to resize my brush depending on where the feature I was painting (near or far away). After about an hour I believed my composition was 'readable at a distance' but the saturation was way off so I used an adjustment layer (saturation) to quickly mask off areas that were too saturated (mainly the purples) This exercise is easily one of the most beneficial tools I have learnt recently and I'm looking forward to continuing on through this course.
Amazing course, worth the price, very informative. Also please check out Marco's YouTube channel, it's a goldmine of knowledge
Hi Marco. I'm new to digital art and I'm thinking of buying some of your courses, namely your Digital Painting 1-3 series. My question is: is the course relevant to Corel Paint software, as that's the software program I'm using? Thanks for your time:)
Hi! I tried real hard painting this piece but I notice that the form and the color is quiet off. Could you help me please?
I tried to paint some of the pictures from the course myself and I really like how the brushwork on the green monster turned out^^.
I also tried to color the temple. I went for a different color palette, blue (moon light) and oranges (dark colors). Although I like the aestetic I didn't get the moon light right. if anyone has any tipps, it would be really appreciated!
Thank you so much for this fantastic course! It was all I hoped for, condensed but so in depth it is going way further than most color infos I found until now. I have so much fun playing around with colors and all the new aspects you mentioned. Thank you :) (I commented on the last lesson, but it is probably more visible here, so I reposted, hope that is ok.)
This was a great Class on color. I've always been intimidated by painting in color from the start. now I'm feeling much more confident.
I just wanted to thank you Marco for making this course, it's helped me get over a rout i've been in the past few years with my work.
Just finish the chapters uploaded so far, and it's fantastic! Definitely had to rewatch again during practice to digest the information a little more slow, but it's worth it. Can't wait for the rest of it! :D
I only saw the sample chapter that was released to announce this lesson, but it totally inspired me to try the color picker wiggle trick on this portrait study I just happened to be working on at the time. I really like the results I got.
Is the color wheel he is using available in Photoshop or is a plug-in or just a photo of a color wheel he is sampling from? I can't seem to find it, but I am a PS novice. The wheel that is available in my version of PS is a triangle inside of a the color circle, not a full wheel.
