OMM Painting Tutorial

Wed 5th Sep, 2007
Artist Tutorials

Hey guys!

Well, after having done some major browsing today, I've finally come up with my second square idea.

Seeing as how we're all helping support charities, I figured I'd lend a bit of my digital painting experience to help anyone who is a traditional artist or who is simply unfamiliar with digital painting to get maybe a head start on the software here and make them more comfortable with the idea of drawing on the computer.

The first part is for anyone - be you new to drawing or new to drawing digitally, I try to break down each tool in the OMM software as concisely as possible.

The second part is for anyone who is new to color mixing and blending - I started to go through the basics of color theory and how to make more neutral tones outside of what is provided in the OMM palette.

It's still a work of progress, but it's so far been a culimation of about 5 hours of work, mostly just outlining on paper what I wanted to cover first, seeing as how there's a limited number of brushstrokes.

If I get past the basics of color, I plan to delve more into how to blend digitally, and maybe even basic lighting principles.

I hope you guys find this helpful and informative, and if you have any questions just post a comment, I'll try to help out.

Excellent job Gracie. We've created a new news category - Artists Tutorials where links to tutorials can be posted.
