My process for creating my work & digital painting

2009-08-17 17:12:26 by ItoSaithWebb

In some of the reviews I have been asked how I create my work. I am digital painter and do most of my work in Photoshop with the aid of a Wacom tablet. A Wacom tablet is a pressure sensitive board and stylist that allows me to make traditional strokes inside most popular paint programs to date. When I first got into painting digitally I thought that it would be a kind of short cut and thus because I approached it that way my work was not very good. Then I started applying more traditional methods with in the program and it came all together. Painting digitally still requires traditional training and is nothing more than a new medium, one of which does not get you all messy and you can print out as much as you want of it.

Sorry rant off, I did say I would show my process so I will provide two links one will show the process I used to create the Yoda piece and another piece I am currently working on that should be up in a day or two, but you can follow along as I work on it.

Shows how little I know - I was astonished to hear that these made with a tablet, I had wrongly assumed that they were scanned images of oil paintings. This has really opened my eyes. I guess I should invest in a tablet if I can scrape the funds together.

Your work is amazing by the way !


ItoSaithWebb responds:

Thanks, Wacom makes some small tablets call Bamboos that are only $99 each plus they come with two free paint programs so that is a great way to start out with tablets.

wow, I must say I am a fan of your stuff, very nice with the Lovecraft.
you wouldn't have a good solid piece of Cthulhu rising from the depths on a stormy night would you?
I would so love to see that in the portal.

ItoSaithWebb responds:

Well my blind perspective piece is a bit like that. It is among the stuff I have already uploaded.

I'll scout you tomorrow, since it looks like you aren't scouted yet :)

ItoSaithWebb responds:

Thanks that would be great. Been getting tired with all this unscouting off and on

But it's better to be scouted than not :)
