I recently followed a digital painting tutorial on Youtube after reading several recommendations. It was a tough learning experience and completely different than other ways I’ve approached painting. The lesson was very thorough. I kept gritting my teeth and thinking about how I could’ve had certain things done already if it was traditional painting. But as soon as I learn the techniques and short cuts I’m sure Photoshop will be much faster than traditional methods.
The lesson was all about layers. And I’ve decided that I love em and I hate em. They give me lots of freedom, but I’m still clunking my way around and figuring out the best way to use them. I’m sure the relationship will become all love and no hate at some point.
Above is the final result of the tutorial.
Until next time. More tutorials. More studies. That’s what’s in store for my future.
