4 Set­ting up the can­vas

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

For this workshop I’ve de­cided to do a por­trait, so I’m go­ing to use A3 size and 300ppi res­o­lu­tion. If you pre­fer to work on a smaller-sized can­vas, you can al­ways go A4 or A5, and lower the res­o­lu­tion to 72ppi. The smaller file size will suit post­ing on­line. In the File menu you can also se­lect the colour of the can­vas and the pa­per tex­ture. I’ll start in greyscale, which I’ll turn into colour later us­ing a glaz­ing-like tech­nique, so I choose a sim­ple white can­vas, with­out any gra­di­ents or shade of colours. I find it’s eas­ier to build light and shad­ows us­ing greys.
