I am trying to read as much as I can about digital painting, and found something that really helped me start painting with confidence. The idea of working in greyscale and then adding colour layers.
Is this an accepted method of working? I cannot find any tutorials to help me colourise the work in Painter 11, but I definitely cannot translate what I have learned in physical painting to digital without this method.
In physical painting we worked on value, then squeezed paint from a ready mixed tube. Our hands were firmly held where colour was concerned. Now with digi I'm deluged with massive amounts of materials on colour theory, and frankly It'll take me months to digest. It would be great to get on with some studies in greyscale and then come back to colour them later!
If anyone has any info, names, tutorials I would really appreciate it!
