I get asked for painting tutorials occasionally but I paint in a very scattered way so I always think it is too hard to understand but here we go anyways
- My sketches are actually usually messier than this but I still like them to be very flowy and try to create shapes to help get the figure down
- I make a layer underneath with basic colors. Easy to change if you arent feeling them
- On a new layer I start painting over everything. I always start with the face because its my favorite part to draw. For this image I kept the details and shading very simple
- I made a new layer on top because why not. It lets you erase anything new without messing up something you already did that you liked.
It doesnt have to be perfect! And my method is probably gonna be tough or too time consuming for people. I’m used to it and know what I’m doing (sorta).
