color picking from references
I noticed that when i use pic of people The color picker does not match the pic. How do I extract the right color from an image? Has anybody else had that problem?
Press F5 to turn the canvas lighting off.
Or, in ArtRage 3, uncheck "With Lighting" in the color picker tool settings.
That said, picking colors off a photograph is not that good an idea. You'll get a painting that anyone with a trained eye will immediately detect as lifted from a photo.
Unless you are painting mattes for cinema, imitating photographic color just isn't that valuable. Interpret; don't imitate.
