Digi Painting


Really want to get better at digital painting, think I have quite a way to go. Never really learnt to paint by hand have only really done it with copic markers and always over lineart. This was based on a pic of the girl from Breaking Bad. I've added a texture layer at the end and also did a quick unsharp mask filter to define the strokes a little. One thing I've noticed is that it's even harder to know when you're done than lineart!

Very nice.
Was this just done in photoshop?
any special brushes used?
I'm just getting into color, attempting Gauche but wouldn't mine experimenting in a digital format.

Thanks, yeah all photoshop. The brush is triangle shaped with a bit of texture 100% flow and opacity and both set to pen pressure too.

I think this is great, like a pulp novel cover. Love the palette.

Dylan said...

Ta Jack! yeah I think the palette makes it work better than it should, the eyes are a bit dodgy!
