MTDC - The Complete Set Now Available!
The first two lessons explore the use of the smudge tool as a primary means of transforming portrait photographs of animals and people into portrait paintings. In the recently released third lesson, “Painting Portraits with the Mixer Brush,” you’ll follow along as I transform a photo of an old fisherman into a painting using an assortment of mixer brushes that I've custom designed.
This fairly recent addition to the Photoshop toolbox has really expanded the creative opportunities for digital painters. Whether you like to transform your photographs into paintings or paint onto a blank canvas, the mixer brush offers us a wonderful new means of creative expression.
The first two lessons were well received, and I hope this one will be as well. Both the smudge tool and the mixer brush are powerful creative tools in the right hands and with the right training!
Beyond the MTDC portrait-painting series, I have lots of plans for future tutorials that will cover a broad spectrum of subjects and digital art techniques - from the very basic to the more advanced. I plan to offer free products from time to time as well.
