My friend James wondered if I might be able to throw up a DEMO on my digital painting process. I said I can’t because my old screen capture software no longer works on new IOS… and that got me thinking. After a quick investigation I discovered a little known feature on all Macs… Quicktime will do screen capture, so here is something I threw together super fast for James.
My process is really simple. I draw my pictures traditionally. Scan them into my computer (Photoshop) and make the DRAWING a MULTIPLY layer so I can see through it. I work on the layer BELOW to block in colors and put the finishing touches on the layer ABOVE the drawing. Pretty simple…. and the music is a clip from something my youngest son Pete wrote and produced.
