Portrait Painting (digital)

Here is an example of a digital portrait painting. Basically, this is no different from a traditionally painting. In terms of how I work and build a painting from the under painting to the final details a painting like this is processed the same way in my mind and skill-set. The only difference is I don’t have to mix paint, clean brushes, or wait for paints to dry. The computer saves me a ton time.


For those of you who are unfilmiliar with how a digital painting is made i will describe it in basic form for you. I have a computer program called Photoshop which has some tools that simulate traditional painting methods. also, I have a piece of hardware called a pen tablet (made by wacom) that i use to interact with the computer program in a very organic like way. So basically what my pen does on the tablet the tool does on my screen. The tip of my pen is pressure and tilt sencative. Its really quite amazing. let me know if you have any other questions.
