hello everybody welcome back to another video today's video is on realistic paint studio and i'm gonna paint a betta fish this program i purchased around new year's and i really wanted to try it out on doing a more completed image so i looked online and i found this image on the left that you see for reference for a betta fish now if you've looked online at betta fish there's so
00:35
many inspiring pictures to want to paint all of them i love this fish because it has a lot of color it's very fluid and and it's fun just to look at or paint it just it's something that i came across in pinterest and i started digging deeper and i started making like a little folder i was like these fish are cool kind of like how i i love looking up like jellyfish those are another thing that i love i want to start learning to
01:05
paint a little bit better who knows maybe the next one will be a jellyfish but i'm still right now in the i'm on the beta fish phase so learning the program i'm trying to figure out the hotkeys because the hotkeys are something that'll speed up my process and i'm trying to figure out what each brush does some brushes are very specific and you know what they do and some of them are kind of unclear whether they're like blending or smudging
01:38
or what so blocking in the the fish from the reference the fins are a big part of it starting out with color just kind of trying to get an idea everything slowly starts blending together and this little palette thing on the right it was pretty cool but then it stopped working halfway in painting this image and so i quit using it went back to the tubes the program's still pretty new so i understand there's bugs and sometimes things will stop working just like any
02:20
other program but it didn't stop anything it just changed the flow back to the tubes but i like seeing this little palette getting familiar with the brushes still the next time i do an image in this program i'll be a little more comfortable given having done a full painting with it [Music] it was really fun though it was it was something that
02:58
i enjoyed doing had originally wanted to just spend an hour in this program but in painting this it ended up coming close to two hours and so i had to kind of speed it up along a little bit more this video is sped up i don't paint this fast just in case you're curious i just didn't i didn't want a two-hour video out there something you could have just sped up and watched a little bit quicker
03:33
so blocking in the highlights and getting the color and i like starting with the black canvas that was pretty fun you can actually start with the color first putting in some blues from the reference still experimenting playing with these brushes and figuring out what they do getting the eyes locked in the little details that i'm putting in
04:18
were just kind of getting me familiar with the brushes it wasn't really meant to be like final right there i was just trying to see what what happens if i dab some paint in the end i end up blending it all away but it did help start kind of establishing what colors were gonna be where in a way and here you i would start blending it was like i got got lost in the little details so i gotta block this thing out first i don't even know if
04:51
you know when you first started painting or anything you don't know where it's going to head you just you kind of you're going with it for the journey and then when you get there you're like oh this is fun good thing about painting and anything in general like this kind of painting style you can make mistakes and still push it to to work but it is good to kind of get your composition down and placing it on the scene a little bit more i like again i really wish i could have pushed the fish
05:28
a little lower and i probably could have but i didn't i figured out this is how i would done it in real life if i painted it on the canvas unless i painted it back black then it is going to be where it was there was no turning back so the references had like some purple on the blues very fun color palette from this this image reference that i found yeah it had a good variety
06:07
kind of shaping up the fish give a little more definition like i said you can paint back in some some of the stuff if you can see i'm jumping around with these brushes and trying to figure out what do they do that's really what i'm trying to do is get familiar with the set and i look forward to doing another painting in this program because it was very fun it had a good feeling real
06:41
real good feel [Music] getting those eyes locked in so these fins [Music] they always look like smoke on these betta fish smoke or a fluid dress or no matter how you look at it it's really
07:16
fun to paint [Music] kind of challenges your your eye when you look at it you want to see where everything flows and that's what i did here i was trying to look at the reference and i was like all right this is okay it reminds me of drawing smoke or fire on this top fin you draw fire you got to have those peaks so on each peak i highlight them a
07:46
little bit more varying up the color it was at a time where i used would try to draw flames in like photoshop or procreate on the ipad that was fun it was a good exercise to look at something that it i don't know something about flame flames are pretty tricky and they're fun to paint once you start looking at them you're like man there's so much going on in there just like these little fins there's a
08:22
lot going on this little fish when you zoom into like the world around you just like man these just all these little details everywhere so much so much when you when you stop and look painting in some highlights this these highlights kind of get blended back in and i paint some heavier color back in so now i gotta run a heavier uh color and just block it in this fin i don't care that i'm gonna have to put orange or red i just i just need it there i need a i need a
09:02
base i need to know where i'm going i kind of got lost on that other fin and it's just like all right let me get this kind of blocked a little bit more sticking with this oil template and brushes it was very fluid it was fun to to try to mimic like real world kind of painting it's always been like the hurdle right to kind of put the digital as close to real world but then again it's
09:41
pretty cool because you don't have to go to the store and find buy more paint it's no mess to clean up you just put your pc or whatever on standby if you gotta walk away but i do enjoy doing this in in you know real life too because that's also calming and fun at the same time but if you don't have the space and digital is not a bad way to go so you can see this is a very loose painting right now and if i were to stop right now i would have been okay with where it was at but i
10:26
didn't want it too too exact i wanted it still have that painterly feel to it at the same time i'm fighting the clock of not spending all day on this [Applause] sometimes you get that creative edge to where you just want to do some art it's very calming [Music] there's always something about when you
11:04
create make something like this or so jumping back and forth between these little tubes and that and i'm all pretty much okay with where i was going with it i did try to jump into the the yellow but then it started turning green because yellow and blue my green i didn't want my fish green and and when the reference you can see that it's not really that kind of color scale it's it's more what you see right here
11:42
so i tried to use this and it stopped working like i said and just kind of went back to these tubes little highlights here and there getting that little fin going yeah highlight on the belly and highlight on the top kind of round off the fish these colors worked really well though what was already preset so i was okay with that you can see some of these brushes had a little bit better texturing to them when
12:29
you painted that canvas feel to it and i like that whenever you have more texture and you start doing like little dabs of paint it gives just a little bit more detail that your eye your mind tricks your eye into thinking there's more detail than should be there so when you're painting and you do these little dabs and little small little squiggly lines that don't make sense but from a distance you're like oh it reads your brain translates it into something and
13:00
somehow that works it always kind of tripped me out how you can grab a piece of paper and a pencil and come out with something that was never there to start with and you created some art and that's always interesting to me jumping back and forth with these brushes and kind of getting that thin lines the purple [Music] because i wanted these oranges to kind of peek through it's like little highlights so
13:34
they were brushed inside of the program and then slowly kind of taking it back with these other colors so each color i wanted to kind of have those strips going in for a little bit there i used that little rake brush the kind of like the little knife looking brush and that did like some pretty cool lines but i didn't want it too it looked like like a rake i guess like that right
14:05
brush but it didn't give me that silky feeling that i wanted i wanted to so i went back over another brush and smoothed it out again looking at the hot keys hotkeys are your friend if you're trying to speed up your workflow process and anything you're doing on the computer it always helps to reference any hotkeys used to be when i first started learning like photoshop and stuff i would have a little post-it notes around my monitor so or
14:35
if i started customizing a program that i was using often enough i would write down the hotkeys so i would keep committed to memory whatever i changed and then years later those hotkeys are what i must have now i'll go back and change it no matter what this has to be this button so the fish had like little red spots in it that was pretty cool i was like i i love that those like random little
15:07
colors on this fish you got the little painterly feel and the lips and little highlights and just it yeah you get lost in stuff like this hopefully as you're watching this you're painting something yourself or or just doing something creative there's always little things here and there's dab color so this brush right here had like a kind of like a a smudgy feel to it it kind of worked but i went back to
15:52
another brush though kind of fix that that brush felt like more for something else that i needed i don't know it was it wasn't the brush i needed at the time let's let's put it that way so i'm trying to add more color back into it and there's there's a little bit of i think there's red in that area too it's kind of blocking it out so try to put these little scales and i just randomly start doing little swoopys
16:33
circles to make us make it look like a scale when you zoom out hopefully that it reads at their scales if i had more time yeah i could probably have painted each individual scale but for the time frame that i had i made it real loose and i wanted to be able to read from a distance so sometimes you like i said you can trick your mind into seeing what isn't there now this brush isn't really the ideal
17:08
brush for the tail but i go ahead and keep on i it doesn't hurt i was gonna paint over it again if i had to this tool was actually really helpful this had a good feeling it felt yeah it felt very natural right here [Music] getting these little scales on the fish kind of make it feel like it's got millions of skills and really it's just a trick of the eye or trick of the brush so here i start to kind of blend these
17:52
colors but at the same time when i do this it almost muddies it too much and i didn't want that so i'll start finding i'm trying to find the right tool for this i think this is where i find that rake the rake looking brush yeah and this is where i kind of try to get a little bit in there i figured this this tool would vary up the colors a little bit more but it too started mudding up the paints
18:34
but i went with it just just to see what it does and why not right [Music] then i back out i'm like what have i done so back to back to kind of square one just blocking back into color again [Music] but that's the fun part just kind of learning building it back up ideally that those brushes should have probably been around the first brushes to kind of smudge everything but it's all good
19:11
doesn't matter it was it was as long as you're having fun that's why i look at it just if you're having fun it doesn't really matter [Music] putting back in some of these reds little blue highlights so looking at it trying to get those peaks the peaks were kind of like the the lighter part of the fin it's kind of going back and forth with it and honestly you could probably spend all day just painting this fish there's so much going on and it just
20:01
it's one of those paintings or even one of those references that yeah you could get sucked into this easy blending up this top fin i'm trying to get that that depth to its foreground and background fin i like how this program has like an easel near the end of this video you'll see uh more even the first image that we saw whenever you watch this video it had that uh
20:42
like it was in its own little art desk and there's different variations for that and that's pretty cool i like that so starting to push a little bit more dark shadow and blending between the highlights and the dark areas and something i probably should have pushed a little bit more near the end but for for this exercise it was it's probably just all right now this program um they had a trial for it and i think when i used it for the trial was like 20 minutes or 15 minutes
21:21
and you could just try it out see if you liked it [Music] it was like one pack of brushes that you did have to pay for but i went ahead and purchased that too at the time i think it was like 15 or 20 to get all of it i think his total was around 20 when you had that brush pack then you add tax so blending on this you can see that brush is like uh just it's pretty cool it's making those fins pop a little bit
21:55
more and making them look like it's you know in there again if i had if i'd kind of redid this i would have pushed the fish lower and made the fence a little bit longer so i'm going back overall just kind of fixing fixing some stuff learning that the hotkey is alt and samples of color and you can use that to kind of jump back and forth without going back to the
22:29
little tubes [Applause] so the little details at the end are when i shift to putting the last details in i start getting the smaller brushes and start putting these a lot small little lines and stuff like that blending them back together i feel like these little details are the kind of like the last ones that you're
23:08
going to be putting on because they're always like a highlight or something that has to be layered on top like hair i guess if you're going to do hair so here here you can see i'm blending those those heavy lines a little bit more with the painting you can see again these fish are very beautiful just looking at just how their how their colors are and everything like a peacock right if you were to watch all those colors in the
23:47
that bird again like looking around at life you always get inspired by what's around you and that that usually helps in getting more creativity going around summertime i would uh take pictures of bugs and that was almost like an inspiration for creatures it's almost like having aliens in your backyard on a miniature scale if you zoom in on them with a magnified glass so we're nearing the 25 minute mark on
24:33
this video is about 30 minutes long and so that means we're getting pretty close to what i end up with as a final image for this unless years later or a month later i come back to this image i'm like i gotta i want to paint some more and do do some adjustments because that could happen too because as you learn as you grow older and learn new techniques you you'll go back to older pieces and you're just like man let me just let me let me just draw a
25:06
little bit more on this hopefully this helps you know if you like painting or digitally painting kind of give you an idea of what what you can do what i'm using to paint i guess that's another point is a wacom tablet and they have different sizes and different variations of this some of them you can see where you're drawing on the screen of the tablet some of them don't mine doesn't have that just a standard wacom
25:50
you can order them online and i wouldn't imagine doing something like this with the mouse it would be be a lot of strain on your hand or your wrist to do something like that so i highly advise using a tablet if you're able to get one and i think they sell a little bamboo once too if you ever look around online i think they're called bamboos i've never owned one i want to try one out just because i like how small they are and i like to travel with the computer sometimes
26:24
so be on the go to paint to do 3d [Applause] so now i'm blending in these little highlights so that they're not so dominant on the fin you can see i got some green going in there [Applause] some green color snuck into my my color palette just smudging of the colors and blending back and forth
27:08
so this is kind of most of the painting after i get this tail kind of locked in and this is what the program will give you inside of there if you look at the renderings i'm going to do a quick look around with it kind of kind of wanted to see what it looked like in those little environments and i love that's a small thing about this program that i like is that
27:43
they they put it in a little environment and at the end you'll see it a little bit slower but some of the environments will have cracks on the image or a little more texture on the painting when you look at it and those little touches make it i guess realistic i guess thus the name right realistic paint studio but so far this program is pretty fun i i really enjoy using it i like the layout
28:17
it kind of fits my needs and what i need and again i know it's this is like one of their first i guess it's the first version this is i don't see any other versions of it but for what it is i really like it i enjoy it a little a little more scales just randomly placing them it's that thick paint that you can see
28:46
on there just like boom there's our fish and again i could probably have painted on this picture all day there's so much in here then yeah [Music] but for this short exercise i just wanted to get something on the digital canvas to get it out of get that creative flow going
29:35
originally i had planned on jumping in zbrush but the program this program was looking at me i was like all right program i'm gonna i'm gonna open you up because i haven't really had a chance so the pain in here is fully like this so here it goes here's the environment and it puts it in like a little scene i like this because you can see the little textures a little bit more puts in a little museum make it look from a different angle you're like oh that's pretty cool and you can see the cracks on this
30:07
painting so that's most of it of this video hopefully you're inspired to do something or create something today i i was feeling a little creative and i wanted to paint one of these fish and use this program and knock two things out that i wanted to do so hope you enjoyed this video please check out the other videos that i've posted on this channel and uh yeah leave a comment if you
30:40
if you uh get to try out this program tell me what you think or if you find anything new that i didn't uh point out on here so thanks for watching
