Digital Portrait Painting - WALKTHROUGH (Video)

By Sheridan-J
Greetings, ya'll.

Here is the very first "Business File" in High Quality video form!
This just cruises over the basics when painting a portrait (I chose a simpler portrait for this) while having some fun in Camtasia Studio. :la:We got proper captions now!! :la:


Final Result:

Photoshop CS5
About 20-25 hours!

Thank you so much for sharing. Now I don't feel so bad spending hours and hours on one work - it's totally worth it in the end, especially when I learn more.
And the painting is amazing!

this is great!
I'd like to know more bout how to compartmentalize the layers and the 'fencing' off of certain parts, etc. (if you can't tell, I'm a real noob at digital art programs... bout all I know how to do is put things on different layers).
