This week is all about digital painting. We discuss the techniques of underpainting (a good intro to which can be found here) and overpainting. Remember in realistic rendering that there is no single “flesh” tone but really a palette of colors that make up what we see.
For an interesting case study of different techniques and rendering in different software, we look at two different ways to paint SpongeBob. One in Artrage the other in Photoshop.
