I'd like to show you the process on how I created my most recent digital Painting . This isn't really a tutorial, but just an example on how I do my art, but if an aspiring digital artist this could be good insperation, but without further a do, heres how I do it.
Firstly, I draw a sketch in not photoshop, but manga studio, mainly cause i prefer the drawing tool in it when compared to Photoshop, which isnt that great for drawing, but It is good for painting. (also for those curious about tablets, I use a Cintiq but you can do this just fine with any other graphics tablets)
Next I import the sketch into photoshop, where I create an underpainting, just like you'd do when it comes to real painting. This is so that I can rough in the shadows and highlights in the painting before painting over it, this is the shit stage of painting so If you are doing this, don't get put off by it, its going to be painted over anyways.
Next I create a pallete using a transparent brush in photoshop, this so that When I'm painting it will be much easier to blend the colours in when painting, and yes I said "COLOURS", deal with it.
Next I create new layers in photoshop so that I can work on individual sections of the painting, this is in case I fuck up and have to start the painting all over again. Also around this time I begin to drop colours down, my method is to go from darkest to lightest using your pallete, this is only a personal preference mind you. And as I add colours i blend them togehter at the same time.
Repeat the last step a few times, add extra details and colours as the painting starts to take shape and that should be it really, changing stuff from the original sketch that didnt fit well, and changing some of the features.
But yeah thats pretty much how I do digital paintings. I know there are probably better and easier way to do it, but is just me, but you can take the basics from this as an example if you please, just thought I'd share the basics of my process thats all.
