Painting with limited value range digital painting tutorial. This tutorial shows you how I paint with limited value. This time I am experimenting with limited range. What that mean is I have limited range of light and dark to painted with, including color palette. This one I choose cool range toward blue gray. If you look at your HSB (Hue, Saturation, and Brightness), the range of B I am painting with is between 30 and 85, no more and no less. It is still a very wide range of value I can use. Some time soon, I will experiment with narrower range.
The topic I choose to paint is ice age. I have been really comfortable with painting scene in snow. It just came naturally to me because it is very subdue and monochrome in nature, much like under water scene. I have some sort of story in mind. An ice age family travelling then ran into a sabre-tooth cat.
I am focusing on three things only because this painting is done in 30 minutes painting time.
2) Value and temperature
3) Edges and depth of field
