DIGITAL PAINTING; Why not you?Simplifications for you (2): LAYERS


All professional cartoonists and painters are familiar with and necessarily use the LAYERS. Spectators looking at an artistic creation can not imagine (except rarely) the layers that contains the creation.
The layers are the superimposed floors of an image. The painter must necessarily imagine himself before beginning work.
The painter imagines his layers using the analysis of objects, spaces, mixtures of colors and relations between the history of the final image.
In all painting software, there is an option called « layers ».
Transparencies in this option create « layers » (numeric) that can be superimposed, modified, or canceled.
The painter works on each layer by imagining the other layers, with the possibility of looking at the other layers (realized).
Let’s do a test:

1.I open the first layer, I draw a shape; And I close the diaper:

calq 1

2.I open the second layer of paint the dark side. And I close the diaper:
calq 2
3.I open the third layer I paint the bright side. And I close the diaper:
calq 3

4.I opened the fourth layer I paint inside the red tube. And I close the diaper:

5.I opened the fifth layer to draw black and rigid limits. And I close the diaper:

calq 5

a) I open the layers 1 and 2 provide that:
calq 1+2
b) I added the 3:
calq 1+2+3
c) I added the 4:
calq 1+2+3+4

d) I added the 5:

calq 1+2+3+4+5
The image of the object is almost real.
e) I added a layer below (zero) to paint the gray background.
calq 1+2+3+4+5+0

f) I end my little creation to create a round window (using gum in 5 layers) where one can see the gray background ; I give a few alterations and I sign the cretion.

Our small artistic creation, facilitates your understanding of technical of the layers.

  1. Aaaw! Thank you so much!
    For the time being I learned enough basics to keep me working on my photos (no painting for me).
    But I’ll remember you for my go-to specialist whenever I have a question 🙂

  2. I recently took some beginners’ lessons in photo editing. So at least now I know what layers are. Honestly: How can you DO this?! I never imagined that it was easy, but that would drive me crazy and I wouldn’t get a painting in years!

    I love to get a small idea of what work goes into your paintings 🙂

  3. Layers are necessary, in drawing and painting:
    In digital painting, layers are independent, changeable and removable … which is impossible in traditional painting.
    The digital painter, can start with any layer. The traditional painter works, necessarily, with the same order of the sofas, of his creation.
