Pinceles y pixeles: introducción a la pintura digital en Photoshop

Hi, I’m Patricio Betteo,
illustrator, and I specialize in brushes and pixels. You can find my work
in books and magazines like Rolling Stone, Nexos, and Quo. I’ve worked in this for 17 years, mainly for printed media. I’ve done concept art for videogames,
a bit of comic, painting, and anything
related to illustration. When creating, my favorite moment
is the blank page because it offers a whole universe
of expressive possibilities. I try to combine realism
and caricature, dark stuff with lighter drawings, and seriousness with humor. I like Photoshop because pixels
allow for accidents, and that brings us closer
to traditional techniques. In this Domestika course, I will focus on painting
as a finish, as a visual style, taking the opportunity to teach chiaroscuro, composition,
and color. We won’t develop a single project. I want you to get familiar
with the system and apply it to your own images
and graphic interests. You will start by learning
my work method. I’ll show you the tools
I use most, and my favorite shortcuts. Then, as a first approach
to digital painting, we will use pixel art,
explore the scale of grays, start to colorize, and use brushes. You will choose your own
art brushes and see which ones I use. Then we’ll draw in high resolution
to create a tavern, which will be perfect
to explore the scales of gray and general and specific values
with lights and shadows. We’ll look at the chromatic circle, analog and complementary colors, and the ways to balance
the tone palette of our image. And all this will be applied
to illustration. We will create composition
and color layouts using photo references and apply that
to an imaginary landscape. Plus, we will do
an exercise in realism using the right side of the brain
to paint. You will need basic knowledge
of Photoshop, painting, drawing, and illustration. The more you know,
the more you will enjoy all the artistic aspects
of the course. You will need a computer
from this decade, a graphic tablet, and Photoshop. This course is aimed at drawers,
painters, comic artists, illustrators, and any other
graphic artist interested in finding
a new pictorial system to be used in their creations. I’m 100 % certain that you’ll discover things
you didn’t even know existed. Brushes and Pixels: Introduction
