Personnal training artworks about edges and values on Krita 2.8.
The two portraits ( random characters ) are painted without references, as usual just from my imagination. On the boy’s portrait, I tried the famous ‘rembrandt lighting’ setup. It’s a lighting setup where the nose’s casted shadow extend and merge into the core shadow of the head. It usually produces a dramatic lighting effect, especially with a big contrast. I probably didn’t creased my values enough to produce it.
On the brush side and rendering, I still feel I’m wasting energy on making a lot of useless strokes. I need to be more effective and blend less my strokes. Maybe I’m abusing too much of low opacity strokes to ‘correct’ things ? that’s the quest of my next trainings… Never-ending-training … :-)
