How to paint Pearls by juuhanna How to paint Pearls by juuhanna
Hi everybody!
I've been asked to make some tutorials, so I finally got around to making this one! With this technique you can easily paint pearls, beads, marble balls, eyeballs or whatever round shiny thing you want to paint! :D
You can add more layers for patterns, textures, whatever you want! :)

If you have any questions, feel free to ask! :heart:

Tool: PHOTOSHOP CS4 

[edit] amgfghgg!! Whatwhatwhat thank you so much for the DD! O______________________________________O

Thank you! :D They'd look even more convincing if there was reflective light from the surroundings, but I couldn't add those since I hadn't decided the colors of the character's clothes. *o*

I gathered that from the tut - but they still look so real so that really doesn't matter at all ;)

huh... They turned out pretty good looking. I think if I wanted to draw some, I'd make it much more complicated (...and probably, even then, not have as many shades on them). Hopefully if I decide to draw some beads in the future, I'll remember about the brush settings like this.
Reply
:iconjuuhanna:
juuhanna Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, beads and such can be very time-consuming to paint because they reflect so much surrounding colors etc. *__*

Ahh yes, the settings can change a brush dramatically! It's important to try different brushes and settings to find the perfect one!:D
