illustration friday: OUTSIDE

here is my first illustration friday (that’s met the deadline) since sometime last year!

OUTSIDE

The theme is OUTSIDE.

graphite and digital colour

I had fun playing with the colour palette on this one. I am trying to map out colour gamut’s (as outlined in James Gurney’s wonderful book ‘Color and Light‘), using a YRMBY colour wheel and then setting up a limited colour palette before I start work on a digitally coloured piece. It certainly will take some more practice but is turning out to be pretty fun to learn about- even if I’m not quite there yet!

I recommend the following tutorials if you are interested in finding out more (short of reading the book!):

This video is the best explanation from James Gurney himself.

* Instructable on digital colour gamut mapping

* Zoe Piel’s informative video on selecting a limited colour palette in PS

and of course information from Gurney Journey:

Gamut Masking Method Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.

I can’t wait to keep developing this colour idea.

Happy Easter everyone!
