I tried using Animoto again for a demo. The first time I did it with text and I went over the limit for the free service. I'll have to think about whether I want to spend the extra five dollars a month for the expanded version.
Last time I did this a few people said they could see the video. Only the words of the title shows up on the blog.
Here are the steps with photos, the old-fashioned way:
Step 1 -Tone the surface, I chose this warm color to reinforce some of the colors I would be using in the painting. The gold color will make the yellows sing.
After I did the drawing, I wiped it off so the wash wouldn't mix with the next layer, something I learned from Carol Marine in here ArtByte on Daily Paintworks
Step 2 - Use a wash (paint thinned with OMS) of the shadow color, a dark grayed out version of the object's color.
Paint the darks so they go outside the lines, it will help with creating soft edges later.
(I forgot to take photos in these last steps. It happens every time I plan a demo. It must be because you get so carried away in the last steps of a painting. Next time I will set a timer.
Last step is to post this on Daily Paintworks and the 30 day Challenge.
15 more days to go on the Challenge.
