Hello, I’m ‘Su-hong,’ an illustrator who loves digitally portraying the beauty of characters. My activity’s name, “Su-red,” is a combination of “su,” the first letter of my real name, and “red” in pink, my favorite color that reflects my mood. As the name suggests, I enjoy creating simple artwork with a soft, gentle feel.
Drawing has been my passion since childhood, and as a major in Western painting, I have continuously pursued my love for art. Portraits have always held a special place in my heart. However, traditional mediums like watercolors and colored pencils required a lot ofmuch effort and preparation, so I mostly stuck to sketching. That all changed when I had a chance to use a friend’s iPad. The freedom and versatility of digital drawing captured my heart, and I saved up to buy my own used iPad. Since then, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying creating artwork one by one.
In this class, I’ll guide you to improve your painting skills and understanding of painting so that you can continue painting confidently even after completing the course. I’ll share in detail the color theory behind my use of colors and the process I go through before painting. Step by step, I’ll help you quickly finish your artwork.
The ability to take shape, or ‘formability,’ is the most crucial part of painting. It’s closely related to observation skills. I’ll teach you how to observe correctly, making it easier to naturally envision shapes in your mind and translate them into lines on the canvas. Through various observation methods, you’ll learn to grasp different forms without getting bored, and you might even discover a plan that suits you perfectly in just one class. I’ll share my way of interpreting specific situations and angles, highlighting all the essential points to focus on.
The secret lies in understanding color for achieving clear skin and naturally accentuated features in your artwork. I’ll reveal my color selection criteria, which I’ve discovered through numerous trials. Using colors differently from what you see can make your painting look much brighter. I’ll show how to use various effects based on your desired artistic direction and how to use layers to achieve the desired results.
Join me in this class to unlock the secrets of observation, color selection, and digital painting techniques. Together, we’ll create beautiful and expressive artworks that capture the essence of characters and bring them to life!
