Digital Thangka Workshop – Tutorial 2 – Colouring a Lotus.

I have just uploaded the second tutorial in the Lotus series. We are partway through finishing the lotus now. All that remains in the shading and finally a few tricks to make the image look hand painted using traditional media. I should be able to complete that in two more videos.

In this video we take our linework from the previous tutorial and create the channels/masks that we will then use to colour our image. We then do some basic colouring to get to the stage known as ‘colour flats’ which we can then use to shade our lotus in the next tutorial.

I hope you like it,
Best wishes for your practice,
