Color theory is too technical and you take a million years to render? Can't decide on a coloring style? Have no fear, Semi is here. This is a class that is both theoretical and technical; it will teach you how to control colors and improve your blending skills through simple techniques.
Why settle for one blending style when you can learn them all?
Rather than showing how to draw a handsome man, this course will teach you how to render that man handsomely. If you only know how to draw a stick figure, you can learn to render that stick figure in the most handsome way.
Everything about color.
This class is for anyone who already has a basic understanding of how to draw and the general knowledge of Hue, Value, and Saturation.
Improve your understanding of colors, play around with it.
Step 1: Create a color palette that works together
Step 2: Maintaining controlled shadows and values
Step 3: Blending styles using soft and hard edges
Step 4: Using adjustment layers to create and enhance moods

Congratulations on Completing the Course!
My name is Semi. I'm a self-taught artist that learned how to paint by leaning in real close to images and absorbing their knowledge through pure osmosis.
Throughout the years, I've collected knowledge through excessive obsessive research from youtube videos, art books, long-deleted art forums, and just by plain ol' practice. Even though I'm not educated in the arts, I am an experienced chronic experimenter.
Thanks to my many years of wandering the internet, I've learned how to draw and paint in many styles and media, and I'm here to help you be both knowledgeable AND flexible by condensing all I've learn in this simple course. Prepare to open your mind for my magic tricks that enhance the way you digest colors.
