Lesson 3 - Gradients and Lighting
Added on: Mon Oct 09 2000
Page: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 

Requirements for this lesson

You have to have Painter Classic or an other version of Painter to follow this lesson. You also need a Graphics Tablet.
Preferably a Wacom Intuos with a standard pen.
For general use of Painter we recomend a minimum resoultion of 1024*768 in True color,
but a resoultion of 1280*1024 or 1600*1200 in True color is prefered.

In this lesson you will learn how to paint this apple


In Lesson 2 we learned how to sketch an apple looking at a digital photo. In this lesson we will make the apple sketch into a finished painting. Our main tools will be the Airbrush, the Water tool and our eyes. There are several ways to paint in Painter Classic, but in this lesson I will show how I do 95 % of my work; with the Airbrush and the Water tool.

We will work with grayscales only (that means no colors, just black,gray and white). We choose to work in grayscale because our apple photo is black/white and because its easier than painting with color.

You will need to have a sketch of the apple before you start on this lesson. Do Lesson 2 - Sketching Session to create your own, or you can download my sketch from the Lesson 2.

Tools we'll use in this lesson:
