Painting Tutorial - Basics by Klyph Painting Tutorial - Basics by Klyph
This little tutorial illustrates the basic steps and techniques used when digitally painting with Photoshop.
This is not an in-depth tutorial on how to paint 'something-something' like a pro (a pro I am not :giggle:), just some concepts I use regularly to make decent paintings in 3-6 hours.

Some of the biggest problems I had while starting to paint is answered here and if you have more questions, feel free to ask. :)

Tools:
Photoshop (any version) - mine is CS2, but I still recommend Photoshop 7.
Tablet (any brand) - inutos 2 (or 3)

Don't know if someone've already made up this question, but... how many layers did you use for this piece?

Thanks, and, again, congratulations (:

i'm new at digital painting - just got my first tablet - that said, your tutorial was helpful and the outcome is great. :] One question - what are your brush setting when you first start out? For the background closeup at the beginning, it looked like there was an opacity on the brush -am I right? Do you use the mixer brush or anything special? :]
