Last night/this morning I tried my hand at digital painting using adobe photoshop CS5. I haven’t done much art using photoshop in at least four years, and back then is was a more simplistic comic style artwork. Needless to say, this was more of a learning/experimentation process. The final piece isn’t anything extraordinary, but the knowledge gained was well worth it. The pose turned out quite stiff, but I was more focused on trying to find ways to get a painterly quality. Next time around should go a lot more smoothly, and hopefully will flow more naturally. Full portrait is under the cut.
