Self Portrait Photoshop Painting (Video)

posted in: Art, Videos | 0

I’ve been experimenting with a bunch of different software and techniques for digital painting lately, so I thought I’d make a video about some of those experiments. I needed a new profile picture anyway! Hope you enjoy 🙂

I used my trusty Photoshop CS6 and Wacom tablet, but I played around with different ways to create lines and layer colour. I also used a chalk brush thoughout, which is new for me. I was going for a more loose, messy look. And I tried to flip the image to try and improve my symmetry. I’m not too crazy with parts of it, but overall I think it turned out cute.

Here is the final product:
