Luminance Studio is a Pixarra product in the Studio series with a focus on painting with luminance for both natural media and design style of artwork. It builds on the success of other Studio products by Pixarra, giving you, the artist, a tool dedicated to achieving your vision quicker and better than other options. Take a look below for some highlights of what you will find in Luminance Studio.
Natural Media Art Style
To the left are paintings created with Luminance Studio. In both cases the number of colors selected was limited as well as the number of the brushes used were limited. As all paintings in Luminance Studio, both started with a black background and painted to the light. The watermelon was painted without a reference and in the bottom painting a reference was used. In fact they are the eyes of Rembrandt painted on a paper texture in Luminance Studio!
Design Art Style
In addition to the natural media style art as shown above, Luminance Studio also excels at line art with a luminance style which is well suited for abstract works.
