Digital Painting in Photoshop - Create Amazing Concept Art - Course Offer

NEW! Digital Painting in Photoshop - 

Create Amazing Concept Art (Course)

Dear Students!

Would you like to improve your digital paintings using the powerful features within Adobe Photoshop? Do you want to create amazing character designs? Then this is the course for you!

In this 6.8 hour course you will learn how to use Adobe Photoshop CC to better create your digital art. This course has 27 lessons that move you through the entire process of creating a fully rendered character concept.

In the first section you will learn the tools  that I use and how I use them. You will learn about the layers and groups, the selections tools, dodge and burn, custom brushes and settings, blending modes, adjustment layers, layer styles, quick mask, and much more.

You will then move through the illustrative process with me from the rough sketch to the digital painting. We will start with a pre-drawn pose that I have supplied and we work out the concept from there.  You will learn how to rough sketch your ideas without jumping in too fast with refinements.

This course can be completed with any drawing tablet. I am using a Wacom Intuos 4 to create this art and although I will be mentioning things about that device you can use any tablet with pressure sensitivity. Mainly so the brushes will react in the way that I explain them.

I have designed this course to be a basic approach for beginner and intermediate digital painters to learn from. I created in the way that I would want to learn. This will not teach you everything about Photoshop but it will give you a firm understanding of how I use it to create my digital paintings every day.

Bonus Content - With this course you get all the art files, textures,  and my full Photoshop custom brush set ( 50 Pack ) to work along with. 

I am here if you have any questions and I would value your feedback so that I can continue to create better products for everyone. Please leave your honest review so others know what you gained from this course. Thank you for your support. Good luck with your studies!

How to Draw Comic Style Hair - 3 Ways - Lesson on Gumroad

Here is my next lesson for Drawing Comic Style Hair 3 different ways.

This started as a request from one of my Patreon supporters. I have done some other tutorials on my Youtube channel but this one is a more in depth look with art files to work along with.

I have struggled with getting the right look for hair for many years so I know what others mean when they say they just cannot seem to draw it properly. It is one of those things you will always be studying to get better at. Just like hands, faces, and feet. ( Yuck! I hate drawing feet. lol )

So don't beat yourself up in the process and just take your time. Draw from as many resources as possible to gain your perspective on the subject. Great artists are not made overnight. It takes lots of time and lots of studies!

In this lesson I will walk you through my process step by step in real time. You will see how I built up the shapes and design the hair style I am after. I then show you how I place the shadows and add in the render lines or texture of the hair. I also talk about the importance of simplifying the process for your comic book style art.

So I hope this lesson will shed some well needed light on that subject matter for you and keep in mind that I am here to help. If you have any questions or requests for future content I am listening!

Teaching a Comic Figure Drawing Class on Skillshare

Skillshare Comic Figure Drawing Class

I am now teaching a class on Skilshare. The current class if focused on Figure Drawing and Comic Character creation. I will be adding more lessons each week so let me know what you want to learn and I will make it happen! I want to teach some techniques for breaking down the poses and reconstructing them with confidence. My classes are more for aspiring comic book artists but they can be translated well for fine artists too. The same basic principles apply and a lot of what I will be teaching can apply to other things in your art.

I hope you find this content valuable and I am interested to hear what you think. There will be exercises to make sure you are learning what you need to. That is one of the things I find pretty neat about Skillshare. As well as the lessons being smaller bite size segments, unlike my larger courses on Udemy and my Gumroad.

Sign up for my Skilshare classes here and I look forward to helping you with your ART!!

Drawing Comic Style Art - Wacom Intuos Tablet - Narrated

In this video I am using a Wacom Intuos 4 Tablet to pencil, ink, and color this Hulk FanArt. I talk about the benefits of using this type of device compared to the more expensive units such as the Cintiq and iPad Pro. You can accomplish everything you want with the more affordable devices with practice and patience. 

This artwork is created with Manga Studio 5 / Clip Studio Paint which also works very well with this type of device. I have more videos on the use of that program on my channel as well! ;)
