In this tutorial I will be using Adobe Photoshop and a Wacom Tablet to create the finished 2d painting. You can use Corel Painter if you want. I will also be using techniques and methods that I feel most comfortable with when coloring. I suggest that after following this tutorial, you find out what works best for you.
Learn how to create this painting, made by me. I hope this will be of some help to others. For this artwork, I only used Adobe Photoshop and a Wacom Tablet. For my other works please visit my website http://www.3d2dizayn.com/ Should you have any questions or comments, please contact me at:
Pressure-sensitive tablets are often ideal when you're editing photographs in Photoshop. If your edits are confined to global adjustments that can be easily applied using a slider, a tablet isn't so necessary. But if you perform localized edits -- dust removal or cloning; masking of tone or color adjustments; or any type of dodge or burn effects -- then a tablet can greatly ease your post-production life. This video using a wireless Wacom Intuos4 demonstrates when and why pressure-sensitive tablets rock.
In this tutorial you will learn about setting up your Wacom tablet properties in Photoshop. Although the Tablet covered is the Intuos4 there is information that is still useful and relative to the Intuos3 tablet.
Digital painting is an emerging art form in which traditional painting techniques such as watercolor, oils, impasto, etc. are applied using digital tools by means of a computer, a digitizing tablet and stylus, and software.
