Finally compiled the videos for the pretty face painting that I did recently. You can find the video tutorial below.
The Painting Process
I start out with middle grey, and working with a large brush, I put in the dark areas first. Once I have some darks in, I bring out the highlights with pure white. My brush opacity is set low at around 25%. This helps to ensure that I build up the forms slowly. I don’t go too dark or too light at the beginning.
From middle grey, I expand the values to both ends of the spectrum, alternating between the darks and whites, until I finally reach pure black in the shadows and pure white in the highlights. Some artist like to work in the darkest area first and go from there. For me, I like starting from the middle values. Hope you like this.
