A Simple, Straightforward Guide to Digital Painting! – Photoshop Tutorial

February 7, 2020

Let’s begin by accepting the fact that this,
my friend, is not going to be easy. I hope I could tell you that all we needed
to do was to cook up a few filters and that’s it. Well, fortunately though, it will be worth
it. Why? Because by the end of creating this artwork,
you would have established so much more control over brushing and painting, that it will significantly
help you even in other areas of Photoshop and Illustration. Today, we’re going to create a pastel art
using this picture as a reference. All we will be using is just one brush and
the simple concept of sampling. I would highly recommend using something like
a tablet because not only it will help you with accuracy, but also enable you to brush
faster just as you would on a sheet of paper. Also, you would greatly benefit from the pressure
sensitivity, because just like a real brush or pastel, the characteristics of the brush
will change as the pressure changes. The one that I am using is the Wacom Intuos
Pro – Medium size. It’s just perfect for something like this
where you have to draw hundreds of strokes. I’m super excited. I hope so are you. So, without any further ado, let’s get started. So here we are back in the brilliant world
of Photoshop and if you want to go ahead and download this photo and follow along, you
already know what to do. Check the links in the description. So, here we have the reference image open
in the very first layer. Whatever we’re going to paint, we’re going
to paint just above this layer. So, let’s go ahead and create a brand new
layer by clicking on the New Layer button right there. And now let’s just name it Test, for now. Alright. The first step is choosing the right brush
for painting. So, let’s select the Brush tool right here,
shortcut B, and then the brush that I’m going to use is inside Dry Media Brushes and this
is the one that I chose – Kyle’s Ultimate Pastel Palooza. You can get more brushes by simply clicking
on this gear icon right there and just choose Get More Brushes. If you’re a Creative Cloud member, you will
get a ton of free brushes. Have a look at this I just signed in. There’s new Summer 2019 brushes, Megapack,
Watercolor, Dry Media. It’s just a lot of brushes that you can download
for free if you are a Creative Cloud member. Let’s go back to Photoshop. I’m going to use one of the default brushes,
which is simply the Kyle’s Ultimate Pastel Palooza. Now, let’s test it, you can actually go ahead
and test different brushes, see what you like. So, I’m gonna go ahead and sample this color
and try painting over it. I think I kind of like this texture in there. You see that? I like that. So, once you have finalized this, just go
with it. Let’s go ahead and delete the Test layer. So, with the Test layer selected, you can
press the Delete key. This was just for testing different brushes. So, let’s say you have a couple of brushes
is finalized and you want to pick one of those brushes, the Test layer is going to help you
pick the best one. The one thing that we’re going to do in this
class is that we are just going to use one brush to maintain the consistency. You are free to use as many brushes as you
like. It’s your art, it’s your style. So, let’s go ahead and create a brand new
layer at the top by clicking on the New Layer button right there and let’s name this Skin. I would highly recommend painting separate
areas on separate layers. For example, skin on one layer, hair on the
other layer, eyes probably on the other layer. You get the point. So let’s name this Skin. Now, before we get into actual painting, it’s
very important that we set up sampling. Now, while painting, let’s just zoom in and
let’s try painting it, you will have to sample the colors around it. So, if we hold the Alt key or the Option key
and click, it samples that color. But, sometimes it might not and even sometimes,
it might sample the wrong color. Therefore, we need to set up sampling. To setup sampling, click on the Eyedropper
tool right there and just make sure that the sample size is 5 by 5 or 3 by 3, something
like that. Not Point Sample, not too high as well. So 5 by 5 is fine. What that will do is that it will create a
box of 5 by 5 pixels, so 5 pixels here, 5 pixels there, so, a box of five pixels and
sample the average color. That’s what we’re looking for. We don’t want to sample from just one pixel
because it can be misleading. We can sample noise or a very dark area, we
don’t want that. Also make sure that Sample – All Layers or
Current and Below is checked. If you just choose Current Layer, it’s not
going to sample anything because the current layer has nothing. So, just make sure Sample – Current and Below
or All Layers is checked if you want a sample from all the layers or just the current and
the layers below it. So I’m going to set it up to All Layers and
it’s fine with me. Once we have set up the sampling, then we
can get to painting. Now, the painting is going to be pretty straightforward. All you have to do is just choose the brush
right there, hold the Alt key or the Option key, just as he would do with a real pastel
he would take a sample or take that particular color in that real pastel and just paint around
it. That’s it. Hold the Alt key or the Option key, click,
and with the pressure in my tablet, I’m creating different kinds of characteristics. So, let’s say if I press very hard, see the
characteristic of the brush. If I want to merge something just like a pastel,
I would press lighter. See that? Okay, so let’s do different areas. Now, I asked you not to take a very large
area while setting up sampling. If you had taken let’s say, 51 by 51, it would
have also taken average of the hair, 5 by 5 is perfect because now I can take a sample
from between the hair, it just works. All we are doing here is just sampling and
painting. So, by holding the Alt key or the Option key,
we’re clicking to take a sample and we are painting around it. It’s all very straightforward. Anytime you want to check how you’re painting,
you can try this trick. Just select the Subject layer and then click
on the Adjustment layer icon and then choose Solid Color and then we can choose a color
which is black. All right and hit OK. And therefore you can see how it is by turning
off and on the Solid Color layer. All right. Now, you can clearly see how you’re filling
it, how your shading is and then move forward. Let’s go back to the skin and paint the skin. I’m going to speed up the video with some
nice music so that it doesn’t get monotonous for you. And now when I’m painting, I’m thinking, instead
of just going skin, let’s go even more specific in order. Let’s name it Forehead. This is just to have a backup as we are painting. Of course we will be painting in continuation. However, it helps to have different layers
that we can go back to. As you can notice, I’m painting the eyelash
on a separate layer and for the moment, I’ve just turned off the right eye so that I can
paint eyelashes over it. Also one more tip here is that maybe painting
upwards might be difficult for you and it is difficult for me so to make it easier all
we have to do is to rotate the canvas by holding the R key and then rotate according to your
convenience and then as soon as you release the R key, you will get back to the Brush
tool. If you do not, just press B for the Brush
tool. Now, just because we are painting on a larger
area, we’re going to go to the Eyedropper tool and change the sample size to even larger,
something like 31 by 31 so that by moving a little bit, if you go back to the brush
and hold the Alt key or the Option key, moving a little bit does not change the color, we
have to move a lot to be able to change it. So, it gives us a smooth gradient to pick
colors from. So, let’s go back to the brush and resume
painting. Now, as you can see my friend, we are finished with
painting now. Some of you might ask, ‘Unmesh, how much time
did it take for you to kind of finish this? Do all of this?’ Well, let’s not even get there. It’s done. Just let’s be happy about that. Now, if we just turn on the Black Solid Color
Adjustment layer right there just above the subject layer, let’s turn this on, you will
see there are lots of spaces which are left out. If you want, you’re free to spend a couple
more hours and fill it manually with brushes. However, we can actually do this automatically. So, all we have to do is, first of all, let’s
turn this off, turn the black layer off, and make a copy of the Subject layer. Press Ctrl or Command + J and let’s name this
Filler. Let’s double click on the name, double click
on the text, and let’s name this Filler. All right, now, we only want the Filler layer
to be on, everything else turned off. Hold the Alt key or the Option key and click
on the eye of the Filler layer. Everything else turns off and only this is
on. Now, to fill those gaps, we need a smooth
surface. So, we need to blur it in such a way that
the edges remain intact, but the textures are gone. And how can we do that? It’s not Gaussian blur. Guess what that is. Surface Blur. So let’s go to Filter – Blur, and then Surface
Blur. If you want, you can convert this into a Smart
Object to be able to change the values of Surface Blur later. So let’s do that. Let’s go to Filter. First, let’s choose Convert for Smart Filters
and hit OK. And then we’re going to go to Filter – Blur
and Surface Blur. And as the name suggests, it blurs the surface
and keeps the edges. So let’s go into Surface Blur right there,
and first of all, we need to take the Threshold all the way to the right hand side and slowly
and gradually increase the Radius. You will see in the preview, it’s kind of
slow because first of all, it’s a large image and also it is a Smart Object. So, have the Radius to the left and keep on
increasing it until you find a smooth surface. See there’s a little bit of unevenness here. We need to just increase it to the point where
everything is smooth and nice. I think I’m going to keep it at 30. All right. Now it’s time for us to decrease the Threshold
slowly and gradually to see where the edges come back. Just stop where the important edges come back. Alright, so we are gradually decreasing it. Let’s see what 125 has in store for us. See, the edges are coming back right there. See that? We need to decrease that even more. We do not want colors to leak. Have a look at the color of the lips. It’s still leaking, right? We don’t want that to happen. This seems to be a nice place. We’re going to keep it at about 60 and once
you’re happy with this, just hit OK. Keep in mind, we can always change these values
later. Why? Because this, my friend, is a Smart Object. Now, all we have to do now is to hold the
Alt key or the Option key, click on the eye again to turn everything back on now. Now, whatever we have painted is on the Filler. So here’s what you can do. Take the Filler above the Black layer. All right. Now, turn on the Black Solid Color layer. All right. With the Filler layer selected, hold the Alt
key or the Option key and click on the Mask button. This creates a negative mask. And what is the concept of mask? Black hides and white shows up. Everything in here is black. So wherever you paint white, that area is
going to show up. So, now we need to take the brush and the
Soft Round brush inside of General Brushes, let’s choose Soft Round, and just zoom in
and paint with white. Make sure the foreground color is white by
pressing X to toggle the foreground and the background. Let’s make the brush larger and simply paint
in white to fill up the areas that you have to. Easy, isn’t it? Simple stuff right there. So let’s just go ahead and finish this. It’s not going to take you time You don’t
have to be accurate in here. Just fill it. Maybe around the edges, you might have to
be a little careful. See, we’ve painted a little extra. So when you have painted a little extra and
you want to take it back, press X, make the foreground color black and just paint over
it. Black hides and white shows up. All right, let’s paint here. Maybe you can leave out the hair a little
bit, the outside of the hair, but for the most part, you can fill that too. I think we have taken care of most areas. To check, you can always hold the Alt key
or the Option key, click on the mask, see which areas are left out and you can fill
those. Hold the Alt key or the Option key again,
click on the Mask to bring everything back. Now it’s time for us to create a new background. So you can actually take the time again to
paint your own background, or if you’re lazy like me, just drop in a stock photo. So, here we are in our File Explorer or Finder
and I have a watercolor texture. So I’m just going to drag it and drop it inside
of Photoshop just above this. And you can adjust it if you like. Let’s make it larger. Now, we’re going to keep it below the Filler. We don’t want this to be the Filler. So, let’s keep it below the Filler. And have a look, it’s looking interesting,
isn’t it? Now, press Ctrl or Command + T. I’m going
to make it large. I’m going to fill the whole thing with it,
probably, just like that. Now, if you want to make some adjustments
to it, you can do that as well. Just above the water color texture, click
on the Adjustment layer icon and then choose Hue/Saturation. I’m going to colorize it. Let’s click Colorize. And let’s give it a dark blue color. So you can give any color to this and increase
the Saturation, may be decreased Lightness, make it this dark blue, grungy color. That’s totally upon you as to what you want
to do with this. Also, if you want you can also create a vignette
effect. So let’s go ahead and create a Curves Adjustment
layer. Click on the Adjustment layer icon and then
choose Curves. We’re doing everything below the Filler. And let’s take it down just like this. All right, now let me give you a trick. Select the Mask and then take the brush, make
a large, hard round brush. You need to make sure that the foreground
color is black. Press X to toggle the colors and then just
dab, just like this. Now, press Ctrl or Command + T, you can adjust
it in any way you like. Now, I’m going to keep it this way to create
a vignette effect. Now,I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, ‘This is so sharp.’ Isn’t it? All we have to do is just blur it and we can
do that actually non-destructively. So with the Mask selected, if you open up
the Properties right there, or if you simply go to Window and then make sure Properties
is checked, let’s open up the Masl Properties and then simply increase the Feather. See that? See that vignette effect? It’s so nice, isn’t it? Now, even after adding the Feather, you can
control it. Select the Mask, press Ctrl or Command + T.
You can actually just adjust the size according to your taste. All right, I think I’m going to keep it this
way. Also, to make it more artistic and look like
a painting, you can also apply a Camera Raw filter. So, let’s just go ahead and apply Camera Raw
just to the subject. And to be able to do that, select the first
layer in here, painted layer, hold the Shift key and then select the last one which is
the Filler. Everything in between is now selected. Now, we’re going to make a group of them. Ctrl or Command + G. These are the original layers, we’re going
to keep them. Now, let’s make a copy of the group, Ctrl
or Command + J. Now, let’s name this group Original Layers. This is just for backup. And this one, let’s name this Subject. Alright. And now let’s right click on it and choose
Convert to Smart Object. Even if you convert this to a Smart Object,
you will still have access to all the layers. But, either way, I just want to have open
access to all the layers By the way, in Photoshop CC 2020, you can convert Smart Objects back
to layers as well. If you want to know more about it, check out
this video. However, we’re just going to keep it. Let’s turn it off. And in the Subject layer, which is a smart
object, you can go to Filter and then Camera Raw Filter. There’s a lot of things that you can do with
it. First of all, let’s go ahead and increase
the Vibrance. Let’s see what it does. See that? It’s creating that painting effect. You can also try Saturation and see what that
does. No, that’s not making it look nice. I think just a little bit of Saturation is
okay and a ton of Vibrance. Let’s simply play with the sliders in the
basic tab. Just increasing the Whites and the Vibrance
and Saturation a little bit was enough. Hit OK. There you are. Every stroke is painted. Isn’t that amazing? Now you can also take some extra time to kind
of draw some outlines if you wish to. Go crazy with this. This is absolutely your art. Maybe change the background, try different
backgrounds. And this, my friend, is the final result that
I came up with. I hope this video helped you in some way or
the other. Just a quick little recap before we wrap up. The concept here is very simple. All you have to do is to create a brand new
layer and then take a brush that you like – a Pastel brush, an Oil Painting brush, whatever
suits you, and just start sampling and painting. That’s it. Now, at the end, you might have left some
gaps. To fill those gaps, you can actually make
a copy of the Subject layer and just add some Surface Blur to it and use that to fill in
the gaps with the help of Masks. And that’s pretty much it. And after that you can try different backgrounds,
maybe apply Camera Raw filter, and all of those lots or whatever you please. But the basic concept is – create a blank
layer on top of the original image, just sample and paint. I hope you enjoyed this video and if you did,

    You are painting over a photo, using absolutely no skill at all 😀 This is not digital painting, this is tracing in color, it's pathetic 😀

    Painting over a photo to copy is just…eh. Try painting the reference without painting over it next time.

    Painting over a photo is not digital painting 🙄 use a reference and try to draw it/paint it yourself!
