This time I will be attempting to paint a dog, I use my dog as reference. The real challenge is that he has a lot of fur. I try to make it realistic.
|And this is the video
|On a new layer start to do some sketching.|
|I make a new layer below the sketch layer, and fill it with brown color. I name it background layer.|
|Next stage, I make a new layer again above the background layer and I start to paint the base color.|
|One of new feature in Adobe Photoshop CS5 that I love is the new brush set. I can easily create the impression of fur.|
|The eye, nose and mouth areas have been darkened to help the overall impression but you can see that the painting is much improved from just a minimal amount of detail. In the final painting (as you can see in the top of this article) I have added in more fine strokes. I also change the background into blue.|
