Perfecting Your Drawing With Photoshop Warp and Merging Different Styles! :: ArtCast #57

This is part 1 of a 2-part Digital Painting Tutorial Series.

My friend, Dani Jones honored me with the opportunity to do a Pin-Up for the first, collected print edition of her webcomic ‘My Sister, The Freak.’

This tutorial series features a time-lapse recording of the entire painting process which took a total of about 6.5 hours in real-time.

Concepts Covered In Part 1:

  • Perfect your drawings with the Photoshop Warp Tool, Lasso Tool & Free Transform Tool.
  • Painterly brush techniques in Photoshop.
  • How to create an active, textural surface without over-working the painting.
  • How to merge two separate styles into one.
  • Why artists should spend more time in the early planning stages, before moving into the digital painting process.


Thanks to Dani for the opportunity to share my own interpretation of her characters and for always being so supportive of my various creative endeavors.
