Tutorial - Digital Painting a Cute Lion


The image is HUGE so give it a little bit to load.

The folks at autodesk-sketchbook commissioned this tutorial covering how I digitally paint.  This is my compete process from start to finish (and some other details in between).  Hope that you find this useful!

Created with Autodesk SketchBook Pro.

It should be a default brush but this is an older version of Sketchbook in this tutorial so I'm not sure if it's still there!

You're probably not gonna look at this comment but i understand the tutorial a bit better now, i kind of realized i kind of looked past really important things and i have a better grasp, i want to try and get into painting and stuff in Sketchbook (Since i'm a huge fan of the painting style). Some parts are still a little vague but i understand a majority of this tutorial and it's a big help ^-^

I'm really glad it could help you out!  I have some video tutorials of how I digitally paint in Photoshop and the methods are very similar if you'd like to see more in depth stuff:

Sorry if this sounds dumb but i don't exactly know what to do with the brushes and it doesn't seem too clearly explained to me. i'm not sure how to properly use the brushes and how to paint...again, sorry if this sounds dumb.

Brushes will feel different to everyone - use them however they feel comfortable to you!
