Inatten - steps by eilidh Inatten - steps by eilidh
Not a tutorial per se, just some of the steps to Inatten, along with some brief explanation of how I worked.

If you find this helpful, or have more questions, just let me know. :)

Well, I had nothing saved in between! Though it's usually a very fast-working stage. :)

Well... work on it. :) It's not like I knew how to draw like that 10-12 years ago when I first started. ;)

Hope I get confident enough to try it this way. ;3 I'm still wanting to sketch, but I'm finally breaking into creating paintings without lineart.

:3 Going to keep this for future reference

Lineart is more often than not a good idea (you see that I resorted to it at a later stage too!). But I find that starting with colour first helps me set the mood for a piece better. It's like having a blurred vision of the whole thing, then refine your way towards a detailed finish, rather than a blank canvas waiting to be filled (which I personally find very intimidating!) ;)

that makes sense. I should probably start toying with that to help develop my palettes for different pieces..

By lineart I'm guessing you mean sketches? I was refering to my tendency to ink my images, and have these solid, enclosing lines [link]

I'm trying to transition into using light and shadow to define form (like I learned in school. >_< wonderful way to waste 40k, that..) [link] It took a bit convincing for me to try to make that jump.

... I really need to finish that last one.

I suppose I bundled lineart like that in your link with an outlining sketch together. :lol: But the idea is more or less the same anyway.

Now, for lighting, it's best to have in mind your light source, otherwise things start looking muddled. Some good pointers are in Loomis' Figure Drawing books, pages 77-78 and onwards: [link]

:D

>_< I do try to note my primary and secondary light sources, and the colors I want to use for them, but tend to fall into a rut in regards to direction. I just need to experiment more. :D
