Introduction

Hi all! For this tutorial I used a Wacom Intuous 2 tablet, Photoshop CS4 and Painter IX. Join me as I take you through a quick demonstration of my painting process for “Junk Tree Paradise”.

Step 1

I started out with some thumbnail sketches to rough out various ideas. The idea was “kids who survived the destruction of World War III find beauty and hope in the world”. I chose the bottom sketch and developed the idea further (Fig.01a, Fig.01b & Fig.02).

Step 2

I added a new layer in Photoshop, underneath the drawing, and began coloring in the details (Fig.03).

Afterwards I made a third layer on top of everything and began to paint on top of the initial drawing and under the color layers (Fig.04).

Note: I also added an overlayer layer on top of everything and painted in some violets, yellows and blues to warm and saturate the picture more. Then I add a Photo Filter set to Warmer Filter (85) to warm it even more. All these things helped to give the picture more life (Fig.05).

This painting changes so much during it's creation, it's like a living thing that has matured into fruition. Amazing work
