Digital Painting 101

Posted by Avital Pinnick on March 18, 2011


I found this video on Lifehacker. It’s a time-lapse video of Matt Kohr’s Photoshop drawing tutorial. I’ve never tried digital painting but I have great admiration for people who do it well.

Actually, this is more than just a time-lapse video. It’s narrated and summarizes his earlier tutorials in the series.

The entire set of video tutorials, Digital Painting 101, is found on Matt’s blog, Ctrl+Paint. He posts mainly videos about Photoshop, although he also has some brushes and textures for download.

If I ever win the lottery, which is about as likely as a heretofore unknown wealthy relative dying and leaving me a fortune, I’m going to buy a Wacom tablet and retire to a desert island with all my craft supplies until my hands give out.

My New Tripod

Me and My New Tripod

I love my new tripod. 🙂 I was a bit worried about the extra weight but it fits into the side pocket of my backpack easily and the weight is scarcely noticeable on my shoulder. It’s a Manfrotto MK-394-H.

Mini Clone

Mini-Me Clone

Why am I shiny and covered with sweat? Because I had set up the tripod and was trying to take these photos in my livingroom 5 minutes before I had to catch the bus to work. It’s not a very inspired example but I’m satisfied with it as a trial run.

I was inspired by Amber and Funky Slug’s mini clone work. Thanks, Amber, for the tips! Amber has some great mini clone photos. Funky Slug is in the 8th photo. They’ve never met in person, just collaborated while sitting or standing on her laptop. Here are Funky Slug’s mini Amber & Slug photos. This one’s my favourite.


Update July 17, 2010

Funky Slug reminded me that I forgot the shadow, so here it is:
