Basic Digital Painting Part 1 by Sarky-Sparky Basic Digital Painting Part 1 by Sarky-Sparky
Part two: [link]

Hi people ^^

I'm not expecting this to particularly take off XD But for a couple of friends who wanted to learn (including one who refuses to get a dA account <.<)) and because I was bored, I decided to make a tutorial/guide!

It's not very good, I'm bad at explaining things. But if it is any help to you, please let me know. I included the tools at the side to start off with just to make things a bit clearer and leave it up to you later on.

Here's the finished pic:


And here's some other art I've used this method on:

Uh... no XD No, it's a common painting technique.

Very wonderful tutorial! You helped me a lot. Tried painting with photoshop before, and it looked alright, but nothing to how the new one turned out. Unfortunately I don't get a lot of free time to sit down and play with the Bamboo pad.
So thank you for the help! :D

The colours chosen all look great! It just needs some defining.

Sharper edges, more contrast in the colours, that sort of thing.
