When you talk about hue, color balance, and levels, in which order exactly do you do this? I'm not sure if your tutorial is backwards, you talk about them backwards, or what? Any amplifying information would be great!

Thank you, and keep up the great work!

this is extremely helpful because i've only recently acquired Photoshop and i'm just now exploring my options so far as coloring and painting is concerned(it's painful to think of all the practicing i need to do and how little time i've got in which to do it), but the first couple steps intrigue me greatly; you're making a background layer out of a gradient and then you're creating a selection using masking by holding down "q"?

no, no, don't reply to all this nonsense, i'm going to have to study the damned tool-book regardless, but this is helpful. thanks.

Glad to see you discovered my process folder - the best way to work it out is really just to play around with it but I do have a tut specifically on quick-masking which hopefully should help. :D

argh, i apologize, i always loathe when people do not simply search for answers to their questions. i hadn't even considered that you might have a "tutorials" folder. you're an incredibly artist, Luke(i hope you don't mind), but i'm going to do some catching up, i would like to be your peer artistically. i am more determined than your average hobbyist; i have a better motivation.

long message, sorry. thank you for the very personal reply.

In one word amazing but i have one question : what brush did you firs use in sketchbook (for the rough sketch :D ) and again what brush for coloring in photoshop ?
Reply
:iconmr--jack:
Mr--Jack Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2011  Professional
In sketchbook I just used the standard pencil brush, and I was using a basic round brush in photoshop, with size / opacity set to pressure.

Thanks!

zzteozz Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2011  Student Digital Artist
You've used the basic round brush all the time :O :O :O ??!! no way . I read the tips but I've thought that you used the round brush just in that part :D . anyway thanks for answer my question, and please put the brutalisk pic on deviantART :D(if you can and if blizzard lets you, cuz i think that you do it just for the company and not for the public ,yet ;) )

Hi, just got the Sketchbook Pro Program from Autodesk on my mac and though its awesome to sketch, need to know if you can tell me how to gradient like you did with the hydralisk or did you use another program for the colors and shades?

:iconmr--jack:
Mr--Jack Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010  Professional
All the rest of the painting I've done in Photoshop, since sketchbook doesn't have as many other painting features. Depending on which version you've got it might have some more than I'm used to, but that's not what I use it for.

how different is Sketchbook pro to Photoshop in terms of felxibility?
Reply
:iconmr--jack:
Mr--Jack Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010  Professional
Well it certainly doesn't do as much as photoshop, as far as features go, but it seems to have a nicer way of handling brushstrokes sketching, feels a lot smoother.

So wonderful! Thank you for this, Luke. It appears that I’ve been going about digital painting the really, really stubborn and long way using the lasso tool and oval brush set to 25% opacity and flow. I will try your style next time as I am a huge fan of the end results. Thanks again.

Glad to hear it;
It can be really difficult to get clean results when working with such low opacity - you've got to be confident! :D
Reply
:icondavidboni:
davidboni Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010
Dunno about confident, I just thought it was the way to make really smooth gradients and color transitions. I use the lasso tool since it’s hard to “color within the lines” so to speak, for me at least, and I wind up doing thousands of brush strokes really fast. Perhaps that’s why my Wacom pen’s point became a tiny, flat nub.

In any case, thanks again for putting this on display. I will have to try it, though would you say it works the same for softer fleshy toned stuff like humans?

Hey luke, been trying to use your tutorials as references a lot lately.
Though , why do you apply a gradient at the 3rd stage ? Thanks a lot for all those ressources :)
Reply
:iconmr--jack:
Mr--Jack Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2010  Professional
It's just so that the base colour's a bit more interesting to work with than going straight over flats alone—;plus it gives a good amount of colour variation in the finished image rather than having to add the extra colours later in the painting stage.

Hope that helps :)
