Painting A Demon

Here's an animation I threw together to show a few steps in the process of making one of these demon paintings. First step I mark a red dot at the bottom center of the picture. Next I outline the red landscape. After that I outline the shape of the demon and add in more layers of paint onto the red plot of land. Then I paint in all the details of the creature and the last step, I go back in with black paint and sculpt out the features a bit more. Click here to see a detailed view of the finished painting.

And for those curious, animating is so ridiculously easy to pull off in photoshop that I don't know why I haven't messed with it more. Check out this simple tutorial.

One of the things I like about you is that you can use technology/computers without the work looking sterile or crap, which 90% of artists end up doing if they try to use computers. I tried some things on computers but I was never satisfied with any of it and I deleted it all as soon as possible. But it may have been because the teachers put on so many constraints....I don't miss illustration classes at all.
