Diffused Neutral Light Study

Tiga hari terakhir, saya belajar bagaimana melukis (digital) image dan referensi foto maupun real life, dengan memperhatikan elemen pencahayaan yang sangat penting. Diffused Neutral Light.

Saya terinspirasi bagaimana artist ternama, ex-conceptor Disney Pixar, yaitu Robert Kondo dan Dice Tsutsumi (Tonko House studio) mampu menerjemahkan suatu scene yang kompleks (pencahayaan dan teknis lainnya), ke dalam suatu lukisan still life yang simpel, tapi tetap mampu menangkap mood, lengkap dengan diffused neutral light nya.

Alhasil inilah apa yang bisa saya hasilkan. Sebagai studi still life perdana lagi sejak masa kuliah 14 tahun lalu (yaiks!! Aku sudah semakin tua!), saya cukup puas. Karena ini bukan tentang hasil nya saja, apakah mirip atau mendekati hasil serealistis di foto referensi. Tapi terpenting adalah proses dan pembelajaran teknik yang jadi semakin kaya.

Lighting in art

It all started with a several piece of artworks. Not an ordinary one, but the “mind-blowing artwork” from Todd Harris, Goro Fujita, Sam Nielson, and other ‘sick’ people.

They just showed off their superb skill of rendering (2D in particular), using Photoshop or Corel painter, and created a very inspiring artwork.

These people has opened up my mind about a beautiful thing called “lighting”. Lighting has become one of the most important aspect in film, video game, animation, and of course, illustration. Thanks to them! (Don’t forget to visit their blog! Totally recommended).

A simple sketch can be transformed into a gorgeous masterpiece when we are able to put the lighting in a good and right method. It is all about composition, atmosphere, light deflection, reflection, light source, and many more!

I need to improve my understanding of lighting more!
