Tonight, I sat down, and started painting on Artrage. I was upset with myself, getting angry because I couldn't paint. I was looking through my previous creations, and I came across the rose I drew. I remembered how I'd painted that. By sketching it, then zooming in, doing it bit by bit, putting shading and detail on each individual petal. Then, I remembered how all these years, every time I draw, I put loads of detail in one thing. Then I thought, 'Why shouldn't I do this with artrage?' So, to test my theory, I zoomed in as far as I could go, painted a small pink circle, with the brush set at 1%, then I made the colours darker. I shaded the bottom, then put lighter colours at the top. I sat for a few minutes doing that. Then I zoomed out. Boy, did that circle-turned-sphere look amazing. It was like...A masterpiece, as circles go. It was small, yes, but that didn't stop it looking amazing. Because I zoomed in, I put tiny details in, which made it look so much better when you zoomed out. After this experiment, I've decided that from now on, every painting I do, I will zoom in, do one tiny part of the picture, adding loads of detail, then zoom out. Then I will do it again and again, until the whole picture is finished. Yes, that means any paintings I do will take longer, but oh well, they'll end up looking better.
So, what are your painting techniques?
