Livestream - Greyscale to Color - 5.4.16

Artist: Tim Von Rueden (vonn) 

Moderator: Joe Chico

This week's livestream will be on the process of going from a greyscale picture to adding beautiful bits of color. Majority of the time artists start in a strong greyscale painting to help understand values (brightness) of the over-all piece, but what comes next? In today's stream we will be showing that it's not just a matter of slapping on a new layer and adding a color mode, but working with the already established values for the painting. 

The other exciting news is the contest entries for the Battered Bunnies will be announced this week! We wanted to thank everyone for being apart of this spring 2016 seasonal contest with adding tons and tons of entries and really exploring the world of the "Battered Bunnies". To see the winners of the competition be sure not to miss today's stream!
