Yesterday, browsing my DA Message Center, I discovered a new interesting deviation by Dan Luvisi, known as Adonhis. He’s a talented digital concept artist, who works in the video-game and comic books industry.

Well, yesterday he decided to share with the Artists Community at DeviantArt his own Custom Brush Pack, so that everyone can try it! This can be a great occasion to learn something new from a great digital illustrator.
In this article you will find a link to the download, an image with the brushes preview and their description by Dan Luvisi.

Hanagumori is a digital painting portrait created by Diane Özdamar.The word “Hanagumori” means “late spring with blossom haze”. This artwork represents a young Geisha, with a blue and a green eye. The author of the image makes a great study on the details, such as the make-up, the pearls, the skin pores and so-on.
This artworks has been created recording the whole painting process, from the very start to the final product. The video tutorial has been divided in eight parts.
With the video tutorial, Diane Özdamar wrote also a three-parts tutorial, where she explains how she worked on the details like eyes, pearls and skin.
In this article you will find the eight videos of the tutorial, the links to the written tutorial and a small animation of the work in progress.
Of course, all this work is copyrighted by Diane Özdamar.
This guide is divided in 4 Workshops:
- Skin & Hair [link]
- Fabric & Costume [link]
- Nature & Enviroment [link]
- Elements [link]
As you may see, this guide helps you to set up your own brushes (or Marta’s source brushes) in Painter or Photoshop to develop your artwork. Each article is dedicated to a different part of the artworks, so that the author can concentrate on all the aspects of that particolar subject. If you click on the links above, you will see that you can download also the source files of the articles, in this case Marta’s Brushes.
As a beginner in Digital Painting, I found these articles really useful, even because when I started working to this kind of art, I had not idea of how to set my brushes to do that particolar thing. Of course, there are many ways to paint fabric or eyelashes, but this guide can be a really good starting point for beginners, and a source of inspiration for intermediate Painters.
