Digital Painting Tutorial Part 3

Final “Spring” Because Spring is part two of a four-part project, I had be sure that the choices I made for this piece will harmonize with the previous work.

Digital Painting Tutorial/Spring Part 2

Okey Dokey, part two is mostly about the way I manipulated my photos to provide a back round and a dress for Ms. Spring.  There have to be myriad ways to deal with photos incorporated into digital paintings.  I’m simply revealing the way I went about it in this piece.  And, I have no problem […]
