Acrylic Painting Tutorial by RevanREK Acrylic Painting Tutorial by RevanREK
OK, so I know there are many digital painting tutorials, but not so many traditional tutorials, which is sad because traditional art is what made digital art!! So I thought it would be great to do a WIP/tutorial breakdown of my Aragorn painting, with a few hints and tips as to how I work. (Sorry about some of the spelling though! :P)

Please understand this might be a tutorial but these are only guidelines showing how I do things, there are no rules when it comes to using acrylics, and that's the great thing about art! :)

Anyway, now, as promised I will tell you how to make a simple 'stay wet palette' for acrylic paints. So that your paints won't dry out and you won't have to re-mix colours if you want to take a break.

How to make a stay wet palette.
:bulletpurple: Buy a box of ferrero rocher's (the chocolates) or something with a similar plastic box to this, [link] and take out the tray and the chocolates, (guess where you put them! ;P)

:bulletred: Once it's a completely empty box, place a super absorbent cleaning cloth (something like this [link] [link] ) into the bottom tray, cut it to the right size if you have to.

:bulletblue: Make sure it's slightly damp and then place a piece to tracing paper on the top, and your done!

:bulletgreen: It's great, just close the lid when you go to take a break and you can come back later and all your mixed paints are still wet! I even left mine overnight.

This is wonderful! I've been wondering how people paint things that they have sketched for a while now, and all of a sudden I get this in my inbox as a lovely surprise, so thanks for putting it up!

Aw thank you so much! I'm glad you found it interesting, I wasn't going to upload it at first because I thought no one would really want to see it! But I'm so glad someone did!! :hug:
