I’ve been trying to power-up my painting skills with this digital painting of a blonde girl on a dark blue background. Done in Clip Studio Paint.
This is a steampunk soldier digital painting in Gimp of Atonis Trogade, a Captain of the Suborean Guard and one of the characters from my digital comic project. I’m not sure how steampunky this is though, I’d love to know what you think.
Here was my process.
This is version 2 of my dark acolyte concept.
Here’s a dark acolyte digital painting using Gimp.
I’ve been using some of the techniques I’ve learned from ctrlpaint.com.
These techniques were:
- Painting outside of the lines and then erasing back (http://www.ctrlpaint.com/dp101-4/).
- Using more layers when painting.
- Using the Free Select tool to limit the area affected by the paint brush (check out the M tattoo on his face).
After taking 13 hours over my previous picture I thought I’d try out a faster technique. This time I’ve missed out the line drawing stage and gone straight to digital painting. I used a reference photo, Manga Studio and the Wacom Intuos3. This black panther digital painting took 2 hours. Next I will paint one with bat-wings and some armour!
