Check your val­ues prop­erly

ImagineFX - - Imagine Nation -

I just wanted to say what a fan­tas­tic is­sue 104 was, es­pe­cially the work­shop by Jennifer Healy whose work is sublime – she’s cer­tainly an in­spi­ra­tional artist.

One thing that I wanted to men­tion from Jennifer’s work­shop was her ex­cel­lent tip for the Value Check. How­ever, there was a vi­tal part of this use­ful artist in­sight miss­ing (in both the video and mag­a­zine): you need to fill a new layer with white and set the Blend­ing mode to Color.

I know it’s only a mi­nor de­tail to point out among a very de­tailed work­shop, but I just wanted to fol­low this up as the Value Check is ex­tremely help­ful. It took me a while to work it out and that’s why I wanted to help other read­ers who also may not know this. Paul Oldridge, via email Claire replies Paul, we’re al­ways happy when artists share their tips and se­crets – it’s this sort of open­ness that’s just one of the rea­sons why our art com­mu­nity is so great. Thanks for send­ing this in.

Jennifer’s art from is­sue 104 caught a lot of our read­ers’ eyes, in­clud­ing our star let­ter writer’s.
