Maybe this is the start of something useful? 🙂 I’ve been trying to put my Skillshare subscription to good use- aka actually watching and implementing techniques from all the classes I have bookmarked. So if Skillshare Saturday (sharing classes I have found particularly useful) is something you are into please let me know! The class I want to share today is- Adobe Photoshop CC by Daniel Scott. (https://skl.sh/2RrnIsD– using this link will also give you 2 free months of Skillshare (and me a referral bonus-thanx!) if you don’t already have an account and/ if you want to buy the course outright it’s also available at Udemy here ) So about…
One of the things I noticed about Insecure was how beautifully lit everything was all of the time. It was great to find this video that showed how intentional that was by Ava Berkofsky (Insecure’s Director of Photography). These days experimenting with color, skin tones, and lighting is something I’m having a lot of fun doing and even though the video linked is mainly about photography/cinematography I got a lot out of it as an artist. Another person that does an exceptional job of lighting darker skin is Eric Wilkerson.

I picked up a great Photoshop trick from Twitter user @Treatscraft. This is a quick and easy way to try out different color ideas based off of another image. Simply go to Image_>Adjustments> Match colors. From there choose the opened image you want to sample colors from. You can find the informative post here –> Tweet.
I’m getting a head start on my 2019 resolution to ‘master’ Photoshop. I feel like ‘master’ is perhaps an overly ambitious resolution but it sounds more goal worthy than ‘get to a point where I don’t rage quit in frustration because PS doesn’t do YY like app ZZ.’ With PS coming to iPad as well it seems a good time to put in the time to really get familiar with the software. So with that in mind I’m going to be posting frequently a condensed-ish post with tips and tricks I am picking up and sharing them here.

This looks like a lot of fun to do and relatively easy- will have to try making some of these~! From Pocket City.

Here is the promo link to my Skillshare Class on using Clip Studio Paint to paint a bird. (http://skl.sh/2lUKMPvLINK) I tried to gear the class toward beginners and to help those new to CSP. If you join with that link you get 2 free months (and Skillshare kicks cash my way 🙂 ) That’s all I’ve got at the moment-the next update of Seoul Love Shot is going to be massive and it’s due just around the corner so….
Clip Studio Paint (formerly Manga Studio) is my favorite painting app and I’m saddened by the fact that it just doesn’t seem to get the love it should- especially by hobbyists because it is relatively inexpensive and you get to keep it. I can’t say that I am a CSP expert but spend enough time with something and you pick up some things. Here are some tips and tricks that I’ve picked up and use often….
[Design Doll Homepage] This app has been out for a while but thought I would still take a moment to post about it and mainly share some tips on using it to help those just starting out with it too. Just a quick blurb about it. It is a 3d pose reference/modeling app. You can also import props and create simple ones in app….
