1 thought on “Hi Everyone! PLEASE check out my inaugural edition of "Aaron’s Art Tips". This will be a weekly 10-15 minute blog where I impart bits of artistic knowledge that I’ve picked up during my 25 year career in animation, illustration, and fine art. One week you might get a tip on timing for animation, the next week might be composition notes in painting. You never know what you might get. In this first edition I’ll talk to you about the evils of "evenness" in art. I hope you enjoy and please send me suggestions for future episodes. Please see more of my work at creatureartteacher.com Thank you!!”
Hi. I’m not sure if this is where I’m suppose to leave an episode suggestion. I love your videos and they have given me more information than a couple years at school have. My biggest challenge is applying color lighting on a body like if a person was on a space ship with lots multicolored lights or a man’s face near, say, a green light sabre, or during a very vibrant sunset. I have a hard time figuring out how much of the actual color of the object or person we see versus the amount of color from the light source. Do you have any tutorials that focus on this? I hope I make sense. Thanks.
