Speed Art Painting: Scorched Orbit
Did you know that every star that you see is actually a distant sun?
Did you also know, that they are so far away, that they may not even exist anymore, and that light that we see is an afterimage that we're now just seeing?
You know that cliche, the "We're so small compared to the universe". Well.
Enough of that. Now, I'm happy to report that I am steadily learning new techniques and capabilities with my iPad and procreate.
One amazing tool that I learned of, is inverse selection. I thought this was a tool limited to applications like photoshop but it's in here too. Basically, I can select a portion of my painting, and draw inside that selection without accidentally painting outside of that selection.
So for example. My planets. I've been trying to perfect planet textures, but it was annoying because I had to lay down the texture, then clean up anything that spilled out of the sphere, With selections, I can just specify a sphere and lay down texture without having to do crazy cleanup.
What do you guys think?
Oh yeah, and if you have any ideas or suggestions, please also drop that down below and you may just see your idea featured in the next painting!
