Why Hallo Thar!
Welcome to my classroom. As some of you know my profession is working as a college lecturer teaching Digital Art so I thought I would apply my knowledge to the good residents of MF also.
This thread is for anyone who wants to know something or ask a question or advice about CG painting and Digital Art or just art in general.
It could be anything from how to use the brushes in Photoshop properly to the best way to draw hands! Ask me absolutely anything and I will try my best to answer your questions to the best of my knowledge.
I am also planning on creating some video tutorials/answers for those who want to visually see how to do something. For now the best I can offer is screenshots but I will make them into tutorials so they are easy to read and follow.
Later on in time, I will be posting updates to this thread with perhaps small challenges for anyone who wishes to participate or even just to use as a bit of practice. Often at my workplace I set small tasks for my students to do to help them progress with their drawing and colouring skills. I think this might be good here but we shall see how it goes first!
SO, who's up first?
