Process Gif 1

I am trying to get better at document my process as I experiment with different tools and ways of working in Photoshop.  to help with this I have decided to start doing gifs that step through the painting from start to finish. I have only created a few gifs so far but I am already learning a lot about my process and ways to streamline my workflow.

In this painting I started with a quick sketch and then blocked in the foreground, middle ground, and background on separate layers. once I had the separate layers blocked out I went back and forth between them adding texture and detail.

2-3 hour Environment Painting

I had Monday off so I painted an environment. I need to practice painting foliage more.

A portrait I did the other day based on a sketch from a life drawing session. the sketch was 5 minutes and the painting took about 2 hours.  I am trying some new things in Photoshop to help me with color, I also added a noise filter which added an interesting texture. I think I made the noise filter a little too strong in this painting but I like the effect that it gave me.
