This was a warm up sketch. Trying to get recharged for the next big project. I like when I find new music. Especially when it inspires me to paint. She was inspired. I’m ready to get back to work.
I’ve been working a lot lately. Got a little fried today, so I decided to step back and do some fun art. This digital painting was from a photo, took about an hour. I’m really happy with it. I’m starting to get used to adding all the different colors into the skin tone. Also getting used to using larger brushes at low opacity to get a cleaner look. Its so contradictory don’t you think? I used to think it took little brushes to get realism, but nope.
I am teaching at Digital coloring/Digital Illustration workshop at the Garden & Arts Center Tuesday (March 6th) from 6 – 9pm. The workshop is $50 per person. If you are interested please pre-register soon. Call (806)767-3724 or go by the Garden and Arts Center at 46th and University ave.
In this workshop I will show you how to scan and set up lineart to be colored in photoshop. I will demonstrate the coloring process, along with all the tools and short-cuts I use to get professional results.
I will also show how to do a digital painting, how to set up your brushes, textures and pallete to get quality painterly effects.
Hand-outs, brush, texture and color pallete resources will be provided.
If you have little to no experience with photoshop, this class will give you everything you need to get started.
