Joe Biden Color-fied!



OK, so I'm still experimenting with different ways to paint quickly while maintaining a certain look and quality that I want to see in my work. This isn't a finished painting, but I feel very good about the direction as well as this technique. All in all about 40 minutes to add the color, not bad and could save me some time? Still need to mess around with some other techniques and approaches, but for now I'm settled enough to move on with other projects!

Is the new technique drastically different from the one you taught us in the class? I have to say I've been struggling since the class ended. I'm not sure why. I debated even enrolling again but decided to just keep practicing. If you decide to teach a different class or change the caricature class please keep us posted. If anyone is on the fence about taking the class, know this: it will help you in ALL aspects of drawing/painting whether digitally or traditionally. Great work as always Jason.

Nice man! This new technique definitely has the quality like your other work, and if it is faster, all the better! Props Jason!

Right on, that is exactly the problem I am really frustrated with right now. My recent project was noodled way too long and lost this nice rough look, besides it took me longer then it should have.
I've tried this saturating a black/white painting technique but I get stuck with varying levels of saturation that I haven't been a fan of, kind of muddiness in the color. You've obviously made it work.

I'm just curious if the technique is to work out the values in grayscale then lay a layer with the blending mode set to color? If so, are you keeping the colors as flat "cell" shading and letting the underlying grayscale values do their job?

Looks great by the way!

Thank you guys, glad you dig it. I still need to mess around with this approach a bit more. What I'm doing basically is painting in grayscale and then layering color in "color" and "multiply" mode . . . then I flatten the image and paint opaquely on top of . . . the values from the underpainting are important, but Its important to go further than just layering color on top of it. Otherwise the color will appear muddy and desaturated.

Nice one Jason. Interesting to read how you experiment with the gray tones and then new layers in color. Phenomenal result! I never have used the multipy option to layer in color, I use it to filter my sketch.
Absolutely gonna try that.

I've tried the same technique as well but with limited results. I find it's like a common guache technique, but you're right, I can't get away from "muddy" colors.
More Paint? Thicker?

Awesome work either way!!!

Crikey dude, you've been tearin' it up lately! Those long bottom teeth and squinty eyes totally nailed it. It's great to see the progression of him in grayscale as well.
