Hello and Welcome to this time-lapse segment by the talented Pui Che
Rather than focus on the traditional steps taken for concept art, Pui takes a more interesting approach finding form and shape in chaos.
Pui Che’s Tips:
The Painting process in the video it self involves channeling what may seem like a uncontrolled chaos, into something that is recognizable and useable in any sort of artsy industry.
- It invokes shapes, form, and recognition. – A good way to generate random textures; control and uncontroled.
- While the central idea is to let loose and cast away till your hearts content; Remember to enjoy, and mix in your own little tweaks and quirk to shape it into your own unique style and flares.
- Having multiple styles to switch about is always good, use the ones that best fit the situation.
- Be sure to combine shapes and forms recognizable to you into the blobs, so you have something tangible to hold on to while gushing the piece right out from your mind.
- Have fun!
Some of the Photoshop keys involve in the videos are::
(general photoshop shortcut keys)
(Shift +B)- Toggle through various available tool type under the selected Tool Set( Shift can also be use along with many other tool sets, give it a try!)
CTRL/Command + J – duplicate selected/lasso area into a new layer.
CTRL/Command + T – Transform.
CTRL/Command + B – Opens the Color balance option, a very nice color adjustment tool.
Color Dynamic settings:: You can have you brush release a mix of foreground and background color just by the pressure sensitive of your pen by doing the follow setting:
By going to the Brush setting, toggle on [Color Dynamics] and setting the Foreground/background Jittle Control to Fade and set it to 90(or any high number).
