I can see you still need to make a value sketch before you “paint”. Do you paint from the procreate paintings? LikeLike Hi Julie. I was thinking about your question when I was painting the other day. Yes! Choosing a color is SO MUCH easier than mixing one and if you put it down and it’s not right just click undo. Basically it’s like every color in the world is already mixed and all you have to do is choose the approximate hue then move a slider to zero in on the right hue, another slider to dial in the right value and another for saturation. Or you can use a color wheel and find your hue/value/saturation on there. Unlike with mixing pigments, the possibilities are unlimited. That too can be overwhelming of course. You don’t need to make a value sketch before painting digitally. What I like to do is start with a “pencil” sketch and I use value/shading to help me find the correct shapes and proportions and get the drawing “right” because I love to draw and want to learn to see and draw better. Then if I have time I’ll make another layer for color, to play and have fun. And for practice I try to do the color in big shapes, a kind of posterized or color notan to force myself to see planes and big shapes since I tend to get fascinated with details (which I love) but need the practice simplifying and I do like the more graphic look.
