Beautiful painting job! I'd like to start digital painting...any tips?

Thanks!

As for digital painting, I think the first step is knowing your tools. First, if you don't have one already, get a nice graphics tablet to draw with. They can seem expensive but the best brand is definitely Wacom——I've had Intuos3 since mid-2007 and it still works like new. Then you want to learn some painting tricks in Photoshop or whatever program you use, stuff like layer masks, how to make your own brushes (I use these brushes almost exclusively), flipping the canvas horizontally to see mistakes, etc. There are a lot of great resources online for digital painting with specific programs.

From there you just start drawing! Do photo studies, anatomy studies, try different styles, mess around with color...just experiment with anything and everything until you find a lot of stuff that sticks and that you enjoy. From there it's gravy

Haha, if only you guys knew the pain and suffering this one caused me. I didn't list the time it took to finish like I normally do because it was a silly amount and spanned like 4 versions

What gave you trouble with this piece, if I may ask? :eager:

Her hair gave me a lot of trouble because I always have trouble with the shape of hair. Her eyebrows were kind of tricky too, since she's blonde and also light-skinned so it was hard to make them stand out, plus the whole super-long aspect threw me off for a while. Finally, I had to hold back on some dramatic lighting ideas, because her eyes looked creepy whenever they were in shadow, and I have a tendency to put faces into deep shadow for emotional effect.

So it was just a matter of starting out the concept a little too crazy and having to tone it down a bunch of times, which was frustrating and somewhat momentum-killing for me. But there was also quite a bit to learn from the experience, as usual

Your final piece seems like you'd breezed through it easily and gracefully! Never thought you'd actually have any hiccups anywhere! :noes:
Well your multiple retries led to an amazing result, as usual :)

I never imagined you'd do a blood elf commission, and I can't say how glad I am that you've brought your style (one of my favourites) to the race. Absolutely amazing piece!
