Making of Bunnies Land by Davide Tosello

1x1.trans Making of Bunnies Land by Davide ToselloToday 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.

Video Tutorials III – Andantonius

1x1.trans Video Tutorials III   AndantoniusSo, another article for the Video Tutorials Series (as you may have seen, I changed the Portrait Video Tutorials series to simple Video Tutorials, to collect more tutorials in the same category).

This time, I featured a simple but really interesting video about Basic Blending in digital painting. When I start learning digital painting, I see that one of my major problems was to blend colours togethere to create a smooth but textured surface. Also, I got the problem of selecting the colours for lights and shadow, to enrich the palette, avoiding plain lights/shadows.

Video Tutorials II – Hoang Minh Le

1x1.trans Video Tutorials II   Hoang Minh LeThe second article of this video tutorials series is dedicated to an amazing painting video created by Hoang Minh Le (Aurory). He’s a really amazing illustrator and photographer; his main characters are beautiful girls, portrayed with absolute great reality. We can see that, at first sight, you can confuse his digital painting with his photos.

At his DeviantArt Account he published different tutorials and walkthroughs of his working process, till the day he recorded this amazing two-parts video tutorial, where you can see the whole, complete, painting process of an eye.

This time, I’m so sorry for this, you cannot see the two tutorials directly on this bog, because they haven’t been uploaded on Youtube. But you can download them, so that you can watch them from your hard-drive!

I truly think this is a really useful tutorial, for beginner and advanced, because it achieve a great photorealistic look for the illustration. The techniques learnt can also be applied to the rest of the skin.

Video Tutorials I – Stéphanie Valentin

1x1.trans Video Tutorials I – Stéphanie ValentinSince I started browsing tutorials and videos on the web, I discovered a great amount of video tutorials about Digital Painting. I find that video tutorials, if well done, can be more useful than normal written tutorials, because they show the real work in process of the author.

I think that in a good video tutorial the work in process shouldn’t be too fast, otherwise you cannot see many interesting and useful techinques. Also, I think that author comments about the steps would be really great!

I’ve decided that I’m going to start a new series of articles dedicated to Portrait Video Tutorials, where I will collect all the more interesting video tutorials about portraits that I find in the web. I’ve already posted an articles, the Hanagumori Digital Painting Tutorial, which contains video, but I prefer to took this out of this series, because it is a complete, video and written tutorial.
