Painting Tutorial: Garlic

[EDIT] HEY! I forgot to mention, The minimum diameter was about 45% as I painted this! Not 0%! I keep it at 0% to sketch.

You asked, so here it is (Making a vid one as soon as I have time to work at home) Another short painting tutorial.

I'm assuming you understand most basics in photoshop, but I do walk you through a couple shortcuts. It's hard to show much more than a walkthrough, especially considering these don't take too long to make, but I hope it was at least a little interesting. 

Thanks guys!

This is intriguing, the information you gave was short and simple yet understandable.
I feel strongly about this type of painting, i'd die to be able to paint digitally, all I can do
is line and shade. Its tutorials like these that encourage me to try painting again, which
I shall as soon as PS is re-installed, so thank you for taking the time to make it, I look
forward to seeing the future video. C:

Thanks! I'm glad it's useful C:> Personally, I'm kind of sad to see some of my lining skill go away. There are some things I used to be able to do that just don't work anymore now that I've been painting more. I'm honestly in love with your style, the shapes work so well together :heart:

Thank you, i appreciate the compliment :)
Your style is by far the best, sorry for your lose of lining
i'nm sure its just a little buried, it'll surface eventually :D

It got so messsy *flop*

Here's what some teacher helped me with; Loosen up when you paint (IE grab a brush big enough for the broadside of a barn), try to focus on value first, it helps C:\  

If I'd have hammered that in six years ago I'd probably be better. Oh well haha

broadside of a barn? That's a new way to determine the
size of a paint brush, haha.

I get the value thing, i'll work on that :)

Your pretty friggin' great now tbh.

I actually had a teacher that would send you home if you brought in a brush under an 8 lol And you would have cried tears of your own soul if you saw some of the work of the people I graduated with OTP

Wow, well i suppose they were a good teacher then :)
I'd like to keep my soul thank you, they do try to
escape through my eye holes when viewing each new
smexy painted piece from you anyway!
