Part 5: Demo
For the final installment of digital painting 101 I showcase each of the previous techniques in an illustration demo. The speed of this video is different than the previous four installments: it’s a time lapse which allows me to cover more ground. The entire process is narrated – beginning with a scanned drawing and ending in a finished painting.
As you watch the demo, keep an eye out for these key techniques:
- The ‘basic 3′ brushes
- ‘Temp layers’
- opaque layers, glaze layers
- On-screen mixing
- Heavy use of keyboard shortcuts
- Where to next?
