Hello, I’m back again with a new article about Digital Painting Tutorials! Today you will learn the secrets for painting realistic eyes.
I’m so sorry for the lack of updates during the past months, life is getting really busy here! So today I’ve decided to brought you a new bunch of digital painting tutorials.
I think eyes are the most amazing and funny part to paint inside a portrait… but they are also tricky to do. Infact you have to respect proportions, volumes and symmetry. And you have to be careful because they build the expression and the mood of the portrait.
So it’s important to know how to work with eyes to get enough details and the right shape, so that they will look real.
These tutorials show the process step-by-step, from the shape to the final paint; just click over the images below to be redirect to the tutorial page.
Do you have some more tutorials to suggest? If you need more explanations or more tutorials just ask me in the comments. Have fun!
Today I discover this Digital Painting Tutorial, wrote by an Italian artist, Bunnies Land by Davide Tosello, on CG Arena. I’m really happy when I discover Italian digital painters, and I’m more happy when they are selected by international communities for interviews or tutorials like this… it’s something like national pride :) .
So… Davide Tosello is a talented 2D artist living in Vercelli, Italy, and working in a gaming company; from his personal website and his blog I discovered he mainly works as 2d artist in digital painted illustrations and environments; his works are really good, and I really like the illustration Bunnies Land, featured in this tutorial.
Today I’m going to show you some amazing free video tutorials by idrawgirls, Xia Taptara. I’ve already told everything about him, his site and his tutorials; so, today, I’ve decided to browse his many tutorials and select some for you.
I’ve decided to select all the tutorials with a common theme: so, today video tutorials will feature famous characters from films, games or comics, such as Star Wars, Diablo 3, X-Men.
Each tutorial has its own article with a step-by-step video, a link to custom brushes and work in progress images. Videos are commented by Xia Taptara, who explain his working process.
When I discover the world of Digital Painting, one day I found Marta’s amazing gallery, and I was “WOW”! From that day I’ve looked for her tutorials online, especially video tutorials, because I really wanted to learn from her. Then I found she wrote tutorials for ImagineFX Magazine, and I subscribed. During these years I read lots of Marta’s tips and tutorials, and she started making painting videos.
One of my favourite Marta’s tutorial is Painting Wavy Hair, since I find lots of difficulties when painting and drawing hair. This tutorial is pretty old since it was featured in Issue 34, but I’m happy ImagineFX staff decided to share it for free.
The tutorial is made of four parts, a pdf file with the tutorial published on the magazine, the DVD support files, which are tutorial images in a higher resolution, and two video tutorials, showing Marta’s painting process.
Have you ever heard about idrawgirls? I discovered this fantastic place some years ago, when I started learning more about digital painting and drawing. At that time I was looking for video tutorials and lessons to learn the basic of figure drawing and I accidentally found this site… what a surprise! I found tons of video tutorials about… everything!
But first let’s talk about the author, the artist who’s behind this project. His name is Xia Taptara, aka idrawgirls, a Concept/3D Artist living in Seattle, WA, United States. As he states in his website, he founded “idrawgirls” during 2007, to motivate himself to draw better, refine his skill, experiment and to be free to draw everything he wants.
Anatomy is one of the greater challenge for an artist. Understanding better how human and animal anatomy works require a lot of patience, time and practice.
There are a lot of theories and studies, lots of techniques you can learn to draw a human ody perfectly. Of course you don’t need to master all of these, but it’s important to learn them and use them to fix your own style. In this period I’m focusing a lot on human anatomy, because I truly need to improve on this side. And today I’ve found on Deviantart this amazing tutorial series concerning anatomy. This is a tutorial by BittersweetDisease and it is splitted in 7 parts. It sums up the most important bases and fundamentions of drawing human anatomy, in a really humorous way: it’s a pleasure to read it!
Below you can read about the various parts content, and you will find the links to the tutorials! Have fun!
