How I paint!
Hello!! Something unique today - last night I did a quick digital painting. Its very rough around the edges, I may go back and work on it more. But I was testing out a free program called CamStudio.
It basically captures what you are doing on screen. So i videod my painting process in photoshop. I enjoy watching these things back, speeded up of course. Its kinda satisfying. SO I have posted it below :D
Will be doing more of these in the future!
I just got asked how I went about this image. Basically, I painted all on one layer. Sometimes I paint on many, but because this was a quick sketch, I stuck to one. Less to think about! For the whole painting, I just used the standard photoshop brush. I made no changes to it. I adjusted its size only, depending on which bit I was painting. Usually I set the brush to change opacity with how hard I press on my tablet. However I forgot to do that, and only remembered about 3/4 of the way through this sketch. I kept the brush hard, not soft. Thats aboot it! Thats how I generally always paint.
PS... some of you may have noticed that I had ads up on this site for a while. I was testing them out, but, I felt dirty hahaha. Like I had sold my soul. So, now they are down. I reckon my blog should be about my art, and adding ads is devaluing it all a bit. Anyhoo... it feels much better without them!
