Hello Deviants! My latest video tutorial is out and ready for download! [link]
Environment Design 3 builds off of that last two videos I created, Environment Design 1 & 2.
Starting off with a very loose sketch, I take you through my process of 'finding' this painting within the chaos. By using custom brushes, photography, and textures, along with good composition, perspective and lighting, I will show you how you can create a powerful and engaging piece of art.
With a run time of about two hours, this is my longest and most in depth video yet. I pack in an enormous amount of information in a short time, so get your digital painting hats on and get ready to learn like crazy!
Brushes, custom shapes, and reference included!
ALL work created in Photoshop.
Get it now and be creating majestic and dynamic environments tonight! [link]
Free for anyone's use! Please read the rules marked by the red bullets before using, though. You can use it for whatever you wish as long as it does not conflict with them.
This was my submission for this contest. I didn't win, but the contest was still the perfect motivation to make more line art.
It is a PSD file (download link is on the right), which is compatible with nearly all programs, but if you need it in another format, just ask! The file is huge, by the way, because the line art is about twice this size. Also, I included lots of layers labeled for your convenience. It should be pretty easy to understand, but ask if you have any questions.
RULES: You may upload your version here on deviantART as well as other sites, but you must give a link to my profile and/or original line art AND give me full credit for the line art. You may alter the line art AS LONG AS you link to the original that is mine. If you upload your version, DO NOT submit it as a print, for the work is not entirely yours and it would be considered stealing since you intend to make a profit from work that is partially someone else's. Making points or otherwise money adoptables with this is also prohibited. Making free adoptables such as draw-to-adopts is okay so long as you credit me for the line art. if you upload your version, please send me a note or comment with a link to it so I can see it!
I'd appreciate it if you can follow these rules. They are not hard!
I've been asked to do a tutorial on landscape painting a few times. So I recorded this video, sped it up and then commented on it. I though 18 minutes would be ample, but it turned out to be a very short time, so I only got to mention a few things- if you like this type of video, I'll probably do more soon.
How about a scene for a change? A change of scenery?
This could actually be more of what Chris was looking for.
I went with pink weeping cherry. Excellent resolution on the foliage. Lisa really does fine work. If you have Daz Studio, or Poser you should buy her stuff. I don't know whether she makes them available for any other programs.
