Next week I'm going to be livestreaming while coloring a collaborative piece, drawn by djfreestyle . Once finished, this will be entered into the EscMot 2018 artwork contest: www.escapemotions.com/communit…
If you want to learn how to use Rebelle 3 I made these video tutorial series to help get you up and running quickly:

I made this quick video to show how to use the new HSLuv picker to select colors in the Rebelle 3.1 update:

Jason Maranto
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I began working as a professional artist in 1997. I started out working in comics, first as an inker, then branching out to do lettering, coloring, cover illustration, logo design, penciling, painting and art direction. Eventually, I moved on to fine art painting in Egg Tempera, Watercolor and Oils as well. I also owned an art gallery for 5 years, during which time I hosted 27 art shows featuring local artists.

I enjoy learning and teaching almost as much as creating artwork, and to that end I have been creating professional video tutorial series since 2010. To date I have released 16 full-length (8+ hour) tutorial series through VTC, 2 full-length series independently, as well as many shorter ones through freelancing (directly for the companies that make the softwares). During the course of doing this work I have become particularly known for my teaching on how to make and tweak brushes -- as well as the many brushes I have made available to users as part of releasing these series, or directly for the software companies.

I currently release exclusive new brushes for Rebelle and Corel Painter each month on my Patreon. I also work on my own personal fine art paintings and occasionally release 3D content as a PA for DAZ3D.
