Digital Painting Sketch – "Desert Suns" – Composition, Lighting and Color



I guess finally I was able to record my voice over for this video damn it's been really busy these last couple of months and it's been really really crazy so yeah indeed man finally and really really big welcome for this first voiceover ever that I do yeah don't expect this to go perfectly but I'll try to make this as best as possible and I really hope you enjoy it hopefully later the videos will be better in terms of voiceover and just using a record of my phone so yeah it's the best stuff car right now but I've been really really you know high expectations to create this kind of thing where I create my own paintings and then just do some tutorials and yeah those those kind of things that people enjoy watching to learn stuff and thanks for watching I really really hope you enjoy so yeah welcome my name is Philippines you can just call me Phil it's probably easier I'm a digital artist working and living in Portugal and I love seriously seriously love to paint landscapes I can do weather stuff but it's what I really really like to do because I would really really like to create my my own worlds and to you know it's tablished moods and those sort of thing I really love concept art and that's why mostly why I'm doing this so yeah without further ado let's just get into the painting as you've probably seen already this is a really quick sketch of a landscape which took about 130 minutes or so it was meant and it is meant to one of my projects that I started a year ago or so um I've been working on it from time to time whenever I can and I hope it's okay that I give you a bit of insight about what the project is about so that you understand a bit of the choices that I've made throughout this painting and like composition in color why there's two suns why and you'll see I'll do a really big planet and yeah that that sort of stuff that kind of gives you the the limitations and the objective about what you're doing so my project is called at alignment and it is about a galaxy that has two suns at its centre and as you might expect there is a lot of heat in most of these planets that's why most of the colors came in here is a sort of mix of red and oranges and and browns kind of like those really hot color schemes that give you the sensation of heat going on to me it's really important to establish this sort of thing right away because sort of helps you understand the kind of landscape that you're doing and helps you understand right away the color scheme that you want to use it helps you get really really fast almost without thinking about what you're doing because it's already processed in your brain you know what you're doing you can imagine really easy and you can access to to your memories and find sort of environments that you've already seen even just photos or or whatever you know so yeah it gets really really fast if you do it like like that at least to me that's that's how it works of course everyone has its own process and and what you're thinking but that's mine I guess anyway yeah this the sketch started really really basic I had that sort of idea but I started with with a line art which it's something that I usually don't do but yeah I had that idea already so I started just putting the basic shapes in line we tried to define the the horizon line and the perspective that I wanted because defying the perspective always helps a bit of the the composition layout and once you have that was established it's pretty easy to just start detailing and adding stuff that helps you with the storytelling that's why here you can see me already doing some some details and trying to define a little bit better the the texture of the the rocks and stuff like that also arranging the colors of the suns like like what I'm doing now anyway most most of the painting right right now it's mostly done because everything is in place or almost as as I wanted to be so yeah most most of the painting right now is pretty much finished after this all that's left is detailing caller caller balancing and whatnot so yeah that's that's pretty much hits I'm gonna leave you to the rest of the video with some music I really hope you've enjoyed so far I'm hoping to do some videos really soon I'm already planning a few so please leave me our feedback it's really important to me especially at this stage I really really want your feedback and so yeah leave me a comment below and I really hope you've enjoyed it subscribe and thank you so much for listening you you you

  1. Onde aprendeste a desenhar? Sozinho ou nuna escola? Porque eu quero seguir o desenho tamb e gostava de saber se em Portugal existem algumas escolas boas para este tipo de desenho/ilustraçao. Btw esta muito bom o desenho parabens

  2. Dude, I have mad respect for this effort. Just try and go a bit more in-depth on a certain topic for each video. One topic, one video. Here it would be great if you only focused on, let's say colour palettes and how to utilize them.

    And also, move your mic out of the way of your breath, since youre using your phone, just put it out to the side of your mouth, and that'll do. Keep it up, man! You've earned a sub!

  3. Great art. work on your mic and try to speak a bit more in depth about the topics – im sure you have broad knowledge, judging by how you paint ! 🙂 Keep at it and ill be supporting you! 🙂
