Whenever you embark on any painting or drawing, its always a good idea to have an idea of the tools that you will use ahead of time. If you stick to say one brush for the entire painting, it will constrain you to use that brush in more ways than one.
This is one of the first of digital paintings that I produced on my Samsung Galaxy Note using Samsung’s own proprietary “S Memo” software that comes with the Android device.
This is one of the earlier paintings drawn on the Galaxy Note using Samsung’s own proprietary software called “S-Memo”.
Before we embark on the first lesson, I would recommend that you use a pen rather than your finger as it will allow you more precise control over the drawing area than just using your finger. You can get hold of a stylus for your phone or tablet by visiting your nearest phone or electronics store.
We will create a composition with some more details in this beginners course, lesson 2, please see fig. lesson-2-original. What we are going to learn from this exercise is to create more details by having the subject matter closer to the viewer.
For this lesson, I have picked up a painting (fig. 1) that will teach you some of the intricacies of what constitutes a landscape and should enable you to create better landscape paintings.
One of the important features of any landscape are reflections such as lakes, seas etc. and we need to render this correctly in any painting to make the whole painting more believable. Fig. 1 shows the painting that we will undertake in this first Advanced Course lesson.
For this Advanced Digital Art Course – Lesson 2 we are going to create another landscape that shows more details and perspective using a combination of brush styles, including spray, custom and line tools. Fig. 1 shows the final rendered painting where we’ve managed to capture a cold scene with the snow capped trees in the foreground.
