Photoshop webinar – Photorealistic digital painting of facial anatomy and portraiture.
July 18, 2022
Photoshop webinar - Photorealistic digital painting of facial anatomy and portraiture. In this full day webinar we will be exploring digital photorealistic painting in Photoshop. Our subject of the day will be portraits and underlying facial anatomy. Initially we will start with a mixture of only black and white colours, a technique known as grisaille which is an excellent training approach to help simplify the subject with contrasting shapes to make the form read correctly, all without colour. Once form has been established we will use layers to build up the colour and finish detail with a variety of brushes and alphas. After a lunch break we will build the underlying bony anatomy of our portrait, using an (external) 3D skull resource and reconstruct the major facial muscles on it using landmarks. The last 30 minutes of the class will be an opportunity for the attendees to show off their painting to the class and for a question and answer session. A brilliant opportunity for those just learning Photoshop to explore the principles of digital painting and how to marry external and internal anatomy, and also an experienced artist who wants to stretch their painting muscles on an exciting project.
