Warm and cool... reds

I talked a little before about turning forms with value versus turning form with temperature.  Well, you need a little of both to successfully work with red.  I added a little bit of violet to the reds on the right side of Misty’s core shadow and a little bit of orange to be reds on the left.  I ended up going back and cooling the reds on the right side down even more as the painting progressed.

Hey Brian! This looks beautiful so far. I'm trying to get familiar with some of these color terms. Does value = shadow and temperature = brightness? Thank you.

Jed Dougherty just recommended me this blog to learn more about color theory, and I must say I am totally impressed. I hope you dont mind me coming from time to time to watch, and learn.

Hey Brian! I was one of the students you met at Gigacon this past weekend. Me and my sister, Fenia (whom you also gave some advice to) went out and bought color wheels! Lol. Well, just wanted to drop a line, man. Take care.

Brian,

I'm pursuing someone I believe may be a conman. He first claimed he drew the covers to Shadow Of The Bat 12-25, then that he was a ghost artist. I find this hard to believe but I suppose it's possible. Initials RG, do you have any knowledge of the man? richjohnston@gmail.com

Hey Brian! I was one of the students you did a portfolio review for at Gigacon this past January. While going over my storyboards you said you would like to see what I could do with a comic page. I gave you my card with my email evankelly88@gmail.com so that I might be able to get some scripts from you. Hope to hear back from you. Thank you.

Hi Brian, My name is Violet. We met at Free Comic Book Day in Charlotte in May. I invited you to exhibit artwork in the show in Shelby NC. I just wanted to send a reminder. Also enjoyed seeing you work live on the auction piece at HerosCon. http://hosted.verticalresponse.com/401893/8be9912632/1808500541/d2f9292824/

I’m putting together a portfolio of my original stories, and wanted to ask if you would consider doing commissions of two of my characters.

Thank you for your time.

In gratitude,
