hello this is a time-lapse of a pet portrait that I did this is going to be slightly different to what I usually do in the fact that I don't use the oil brush in this one as you can see I'm blocking in color using the pastel so I'm using the chalk pastel I found this to be very realistic in the way it feels and I thought I would want to put in a bit of texture for this portrait and as you can see I have the reference on the
00:32
left hand side and I am just basically it's just a straightforward copy I'm not planning on really stylizing this too much at all the chalk is on quite high pressure for this this is mainly because I am blocking in later on I look to reduce that a bit more but as you can see the texture is coming out quite nicely on it I don't tend to go forward particularly textured background just
01:07
pulled out the top level view which is always something I do quite quickly I tend to keep my eyes quite a lot on the right-hand side just to see that everything is looking okay but I don't tend to zoom in too much anyway to my art now just pulled out the palette knife and on the soft mode which is my favorite mode and pulling out some hairs already adding detail I think maybe I'm
01:37
adding detail a bit too early on here but hey ho this is experimenting I want it I was too eager I think to get into the detail of it and I wanted to jump straight into the eyes possibly a bit too fast now switch to pencil mode and going straight in there with a pencil you also get a bit of texture it works with the canvas as well and that's also what I wanted a natural feel for this painting always go for the eyes quite early on
02:08
because that's gonna be the focus of this portrait and also using the pencil tool to work in more detail it's carrying on with pencil lots of zigzag movement to generate a bit of randomness to get the texture to come out with the fur a bit of experimentation I'm going to be using the pencil and the palette knife to pull out some detail here you
02:40
can see I'm just zooming around my reference and focusing on particular areas just speed this up a bit this is at an early stage blocking things in going back and forwards using the pencil and then the pastel back to the palette knife they're building in a bit more
03:10
detail refining things a bit you may see there that's what I did is I was happy with where I was and I took a copy of where I got to and put it into a layer right at the bottom of my layer panel on the right hand side I do this quite often I've been recently going out of the habit of doing that a little bit more because it increases the size of your ArtRage files and also I don't tend
03:40
to go back too much to what I've done in the past is it's me setting a baseline where I get to decent points in my painting and I just keep it within the ArtRage file typically these days I do a bit more exporting and export it to an image and I'm quite happy just to import it again and of course if you keep the layer and you just copy it maintains all the bump information and all the thickness of the paint which I do quite
04:11
like but I don't really too often go back on what I've previously done and take out I've done as you could see there I was just using the palette knife and the wet option which was blurring around the edges of the portrait because I have an idea of what I want to do with this and it really is a case of blurring everything else around the face of the cat and pushing the background into the
04:43
back and therefore bringing the face forward and then you'll I will be drawn to the detail around the eyes is the main aspect of it and as you move further backwards you will gradually lose detail I am now working on just copying from reference really and just building in the body and I'm not sure if I'm completely happy with that it's something again I'm just blocking in and using on a different layer underneath
05:14
what I've already got layers very useful in this case usually I don't use too many layers I like to keep it quite simple almost pretty traditional playing around with it I wasn't quite happy with that I was playing around with the colors a little bit to try and get it to match the main face but I given up on that for the moment I'll come back to it laying in a bit more detail here with the pastels adding a bit more variation
05:46
in contrast adding in some light here bit of rim almost if you can call it rim on a furry cat face just adding in more detail I do have a habit on my art of outlining things I know I shouldn't do it but I do anyway because hey-ho it's what I like to do so why not do it I'm playing around with things I was moving
06:18
the body so I couldn't quite get the body right regarding the reference so I thought I would just move things around and decided to add in a bit more detail using the stamp brush got here the sticker spray brush using my favorite bear fur which comes pre-installed as part of the default presets of ArtRage and seeing if I can get it to fit in with my current art
06:49
alright so I'm at the stage at the moment where I'm starting to add in more detail and I'm a bit lazy I I like to start things in with the stickers brain user usually overlay blend mode but I don't overdo it it's a subtle thing and of course having it in a separate layer I can change the opacity of it sometimes I even change the blend mode and the blends may work quite well not quite sure whether this is all fitting
07:18
in it's a bit of an experiment really I think I was kind of happy with it therefore I merged down into a layer which I always like to do as much as I can do to merge everything though now adding in a bit more detail and I'm starting to pull out some bright lights now I will have this layer in a color dodge blend mode which I really really do like but you need to be careful with that because it's such a rates and also
07:51
it brings out the highlights and of course the focus on this was the eyes you can see that the I brought the eyes out a bit more than the reference indicate but that's a conscious stylized decision of course this is a piece of art and you can do what you want with it thinking about the background again now really want to do I do want a darker background because it will bring the face forward putting in some almost end level details the it was the things that
08:24
I was holding back on with all the whiskers I didn't want to put them at an early stage because I would just because I'm typically working although I've got this on a separate layer I would I said I still want to motifs from town as soon as possible and adding in some more detail again I am avoiding doing the background aspect of it but I can see on the right hand side with the top-level view it's it's looking okay
08:56
it's looking alright it's almost looking you know the idea that I initially had to a certain extent was to just have a face but I do want to do that background and there's a case on this that I could just keep adding in more and more detail I could changing the pencil as I'm doing here I can do more fur I could go fur crazy the in the
09:27
end you do get to a point where you get to ministering returns you could work on this for 10 hours or something and get it to look have all the fur every single item of every hair is there but I don't really want one I'm slightly lazy so what I want to do it anyway and to I think you lose the effect and you can start to overwork painting as you can see on the right hand side in the layers I've got a single layer and now I'm playing around with blend mode so I'll
09:59
have this in overlay just to try and bring some color out and to bring some lighting out again I'm taking a backup of what I had but I was happy with where I was now I thought I would cheat because I wasn't really getting the background particularly well and I just use a tracing layer and just worked it in in that way sometimes I do this again because I'm generally quite lazy now I'm
10:30
starting to work my own and also because I traced it just to get the blocks in and just to get the rough color in there but it was only simple blocks that I was doing anyway it's not as if I was tracing anything more detailed now I want to push the face forward the palette life come out and I'm using the wet blender which is quite an interesting concept and of course you can mix media with digital tools in the fact that I can apply a wet blender on past tools and I'm not messing all the paper up or
11:02
anything which is quite handy and I like the effect of this and that's it's really bringing out the eyes the fur and that body and the background still isn't really working I think when I'm probably gonna end up doing is just really blurring it a lot really sits into the background if your eye is drawn too much towards it and I just want to take that out a bit of experimenting putting some
11:33
blur undoing and I wasn't sure whether I wanted to relight background or a dark background or textured or not playing around here with the colorful or different textures on a different layer and I think I was quite happy with that so I brought it to the background it's looking okay I'm kind of quite happy with it I'm not going to add in the grass from the reference I think I'm quite happy with the texture that I've introduced in the background which i think is a default texture as well which
12:07
is supplied in ArtRage which is I think the wooden panel I think that's right or something like that anyway which I use quite often in my backgrounds because it adds a warmer tint and also it's a really nice texture but and it's not overdone it it's it's well in the background I'm getting pretty happy with this what I'm doing now is I'm importing into Picasa 3 and I'm tweaking things tweaking the colors playing around a bit
12:39
because it makes life a lot easier it has been discontinued now by Google but it still works and it's nice quick and easy and it just exported as an image playing around with things I typically just increase the sharpness slightly and I'm playing with a blur as well which I actually use in the end to push the background even further back and I've just imported and as you can see the contrast was a lot better and it just brings things out and that's the
13:11
final thing as you can see the combination of many different aspects to bring out the detail and the background was blurred quite a lot in the end but I think it I think I was happy with that because it brings your focus into the face which is what it's all about okay thank you very much
