Digital Painting Tutorial

Above is a screenshot of the basic Photoshop underpainting of “Winter”.    Below is a visual tutorial of the painting process. Please feel free to ask any questions that may come to mind, since my text explanation is spare.

  1. It looks amazing. I am still getting to grips with photoshop and finding it extremely interesting and fun. Thanks for sharing.

  2. My beautiful and creative friend, dear Elena, I want to say Thank you, especially for your nice words on my emotional day, you are so nice. I feel myself so lucky with you all.

    Blessing and Happiness,
    with my love, nia

  3. Fascinating to see the process laid out like that … I did laugh at the step “Begin to paint” … to me a bit like “Now fly the plane” … 🙂
    Thank you,

  4. Such an interesting process, I will have to save this, it’s much more organized than anything I do. I love Photoshop! Great post.

    1. :o.. it may look organized, but not really. I trashed many layers that weren’t working and had brain storms near the end and kept adding layers. Yes, I love PS 2. Thanks.

  5. I so love it when you show progress of work. It seems so simply when you show it like this – and of course it isn’t. But photoshop is great in that you can use layers, adjust their opacity and redo anyone of them at any later stage if you need to. It’s fun to see how Photoshop is being used in a none-photographic manner. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I found your ‘process’ tutorial very informative and very clear. Thanks for that. Now I merely lack the painting and drawing skills!
