RCCC 2018 Artist Alley Interview!

Digital Painting 101

I’ve been researching Photoshop techniques for digital painting this past week because my current process is too slow and clumsy to be effective in a professional setting. The following videos are the best I’ve found introducing basic techniques. And they’re short, so you don’t have to worry about getting bored.

When I first watched these videos, I’ll admit I knew most of what they demonstrated already, but the little tricks and tools I didn’t know have completely changed how I approach digital painting. And for someone who’s not experienced with Photoshop, these will be pure gold.

If you don’t watch any other video, watch the last one. The artist does a painting only using the techniques he shows in the first four parts. It’s amazing what can be accomplished with such a simple process.

Part One: Navigation

Part Two: Brush Basics

Part Three: Mixing Color

Part Four: Layers

Part Five: Putting It All Together
