About 3 years ago, before I settled on the traditional cut paper collage style of Illustration that I currently work in, I was still dabbling with digital painting in Adobe Photoshop.
I did love the immediacy of the digital medium and it’s forgiving qualities when I made a mistake (not so easy to correct snippets of paper that have been glued down).
Back in 2009 I was commissioned to produce a digital painting tutorial and although in a different medium, my subject matter has always been the same – wildlife of course!
As it’s been 3 years since I created the tutorial, I think I’m pretty safe to show it on here now. Hope you enjoy it and find it useful if you’re thinking of giving digital painting a try.
