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.
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.
Luminance Studio comes with 5 primary ArtSets. Paint, Design, Overpaint, Scribblers, and Masking ArtSets. Additionally there are 5 user ArtSets that can hold up to 60 brushes each. Below are the Paint and Design ArtSets.
Clean USER INTERFACE
Luminance Studio, as all of Pixarra's focused Studio products, has a clean interface, designed for an easy, quick work flow. Shown is the dark theme but lighter color themes are also available.
Your fine art creations will come alive with the Luminance Studio paper textures. Here is a collection of different textures that are available.
Quick Access Panels
On the right are two panels you will use a lot. The Color Management panel and the Brush Shortcut Panel. All the panels in Luminance Studio will automatically hide if they get in your way while painting. Manually hiding all panels is also possible with the F3 hotkey.
Quick Command Panel
The Quick Command panel gives you a configurable array of buttons you can keep close at hand while working. Resize and reshape the panel to your needs. Add, remove and move buttons to create the layout that works best for you. Quickly show or hide the panel with the [F4] hotkey. Right click to edit a button or add one to an empty slot. [Ctrl] + click to drag a button to a new location. As an added bonus there is some functionality exposed in the Quick Command panel that isn't available anywhere else in Luminance Studio.
Powerful Brush Effects System
Since User ArtSets are available you might be thinking where will you get new brushes from. There are a number of ways, user shared brushes in the Pixarra forum, brushes imported from Pro Studio, OR now you can edit brushes right in Luminance Studio with the powerful Brush Effects system from Pro Studio.
Easy access support for layers are in Luminance Studio. The idea is to keep your work flow simple and fast. A simple single click to create a layer with no scrolling. Right click a layer for additional options. Drag layers to rearrange them.
