Worksheet courteous of the magnificent Matt Kohr from Ctrl Paint. You can find the video where the worksheet is from here: www.ctrlpaint.com/videos/paint…
So in studying Ctrl Paint, the biggest problem is quite possibly not using photoshop when learning from his free videos. I use Autodesk Sketchbook Pro 6, which is very limited in its tools and abilities. However, I still try to get something from these videos. So from this I learned how to blend paint my way instead of his. It involved using Sketchbook Pro's Smudge Coarse Round Brush and the Blur tool, which makes SBP lag like a motherfucker. Still I learned quite a lot about blending and just how good SBP can do it. Now I just have to find a way to apply what I've learned.
Also if you guys want to tell me which blending you like the most or what you think of them in general feel free to, because I really need the help and an extra set of eyes is always awesome. Thank you.
Unrelated, can somebody, anybody, throw me a tutorial or something about painting in Gray Scale? Because, every time I try to go out and find some information on it I'm given shit about a Game of Thrones disease. Seriously, one spelled with an E one with an A how hard is it for Google to differentiate that?! Anyway, I would like to learn how to paint and actually try to go out of my comfort zone, which weirdly enough has become drawing, and do something new. Maybe I'm progressing too fast or maybe I can learn how to make my drawings better while learning how to paint. The point is I can't even begin to paint because I don't know what the hell Gray Scale even is, let alone how to paint in it. Now what about the antithesis? "Just paint in color." Well yeah that's always an option, but painting in Gray Scale before painting in color helps you learn form, values, and lighting and GOD KNOWS I need to learn how to do lighting better. Or at all for that matter. So anyone who has a Gray Scale tutorial or knows what is please lend me your aid. Thanks again. Thank you for faving, downloading, commenting, asking questions, and/or partaking in any other form of feedback. I really appreciate it.
