in Artrage, I made a sketch on a canvas ,1570 X 2300 with the pencil ,with a medium gray tone.
I then added a new layer, and placed it beneath the sketched layer. I did not fill this layer with gray, but painted this roughly with the roller. Looks less digital that way. I also used the standard papersettings.I will change these accordingly to my needs.(an eye, or a tooth is painted with no grain, the rest with more grain in the paper.)
For the darker tones, I use a...errr....darker tone, but to get rid of the pencillines, I merged the two layers.The lines will get smoothed away due to the blending settings of the crayon tool.
Using no papergrain at all I do the teeth.Gradually making them lighter and lighter, untill in the end I only have to paint the highlights.
I did not change the color once, I used the withest white.The difference in tones has to come from you pen pressure. With these blending settings and the pressure in your wacom tablet,you can paint this painting using only black and white.
All that is left to do now, is Sign the drawing, and lean back to admire you hard work. This drawing is done in about 3.5 - 4 hours. (the time is shortened, because we used a middle tone under our sketch , so we didn't have to paint that anymore...)
For those who recognised the victim of this caricature, this is a tribute to the hard work, and committement to us ,users .
to everyone on the Ambient team, thanks for a marvelous program. 8)
