TUTORIAL – Digital Painting – 002

A 30 minute demo that focuses on DESIGNING SHAPES and SEXY MARKMAKING, two of the most important and often overlooked steps in creating an image. A lot of it is intuition but intuition can be learned by shamelessly stealing from others!:)

If you’re following along it is CRITICAL that you download and use these brushes as well as set up your tablet as described on the same page.
