Digital Painting Practice

Recently I found the website Ctrl+Paint, a place dedicated to teaching the ins and outs of digital painting. Since I am familiar with traditional media basics, I wanted to find tutorials on Photoshop specific techniques. Ctrl+Paint, run by the digital artist Matt Kohr, was just what I was looking for. I spent last week binge watching all the videos and today I sat down and practiced one of the lessons.

The reference is on the left and my painting is on the right.

I followed this video, downloading the lesson file and Kohr’s brushes to work with. It was good practice, but the end result is an obviously digital drawing. I’m hoping that as I continue working through the lessons I’ll be able to develop a style that appears more traditional.
