TUTORIAL 1: Building the Form by juuhanna TUTORIAL 1: Building the Form by juuhanna
A lot of people ask me how I paint my paintings and collaborations, so I decided to finally make tutorials explaining the steps I take to get to the results you can see in my gallery. :)

Here's part 1, which shows how to get the shapes down easily.
In Part 2 I will explain how to lay down the colors, and in Part 3 I will further explain how to polish and detail the picture.


This technique is actually a variation of really old traditional oilpainting-technique called grisaille, aka greyscale. It's a very useful technique which helps separate the painting-process into more easily controllable steps.

I know I personally can get carried away by all the lovely colors of the world and my painting turns out to be a complete mess unless I think about the shapes first, as a separate step! Then comes the colors, then comes the detailing and polishing.


I'm sorry about certain inconsistency with the screencaps and whatnot, I painted the painting in another city with a mac and then came home and changed to my PC, I used two different versions of photoshop, etc. So getting this together was a bit messy. Hopefully you peeps can still understand something of it! @_@

Uhh, I'm not sure to be honest. I used to have the opacity at around 80% and use a soft edged brush when doing greyscale, back when I did this tutorial (I think). :0 But it's been some two years since I painted this, so the memory is vague...

Hi there! Lovely tutorial. I just had a quick question - when you add lighter greys, do you keep the hard brush or do you start using a soft brush once you get to other layers?

Hey! I'm sorry to say I can't remember what I did with this one exactly... but unless I'm totally mistaken, I mostly used just one semi-soft edged brush with transparency set on pressure sensitivity. *.*
