Thank you so much :o)
And it’s kind of complicated…I started with oil and absolutely loved how colors blended together…but I hated the mess/drying time/ loose-ness/ lack of control. Acrylic is fast drying and deliberate, which is just lovely. There’s no easy way to explain how I blend colors other than to say that I color match. If I’m working on the skin, I start with the main tone, then gradually add more darkness/light/color to that paint puddle in very, very minuscule increments. Imagine a puddle of pink paint that has white added to it one drop at a time and you’ll slightly understand what I’m doing.
Some/most artists glaze over dried paint with a darker tone in order to add shadows or highlights. This drives me absolutely batshit insane and I cannot stand how messy it looks. I do everything manually which I do not recommend if you have a short attention span and or a life.
God. I need to just make a tutorial. I PROMISE.
Will upload later in proper form
Canvas sizes vary, and i use 600 DPI because I have a retina display.
I can only draw uncool aliens sorry.
