This course will take you through all of the steps to create unique paintings from your pet photographs. Step by step, I break down all the things you need to know and understand in Photoshop to move your images out of a photographic appearance into a more painterly one.
Although, I do break everything into simple steps a basic understanding of Photoshop is highly suggested. This course is perfect for intermediate to advanced users.
Not an artist? Never painted before? That's OK.

This section is all about Photoshop's amazing brush engine. It is the one section I consider to be the most important one if you truly wish to master digital painting. The more that you know about the tools, especially the brushes, the easier it is to create anything your mind can dream of.
In this section, I break down everything you will need to know about the brush engine in order to have a sound understand of where things are located and how changing/ controlling certain settings will help with your digital painting process.
Although you may be tempted to want to skip this section, and for some learning the details about how something works might possibly be a bit boring, I have to encourage you to stick with it and spend as much time in this section as you need.
This lecture will walk you through the static brushes, and the artist's brushes, and if you are in Photoshop CS6 or CC - the erodible tips, and the airbrushes also.
In order to speed up the digital painting process I highly suggest learning a few short cuts and changing a few things in your work space. The actual brush strokes is time consuming enough and this lecture is dedicated to sharing with you the little bit of time saving techniques I use.
Before CS6 the clone painting action did not come default with Photoshop, but I show you how in this lecture to create a clone painting set-up in CS5. If you wish to know how the action works and you are working in CS6 or CC then this lecture is still a valuable resource and I recommend viewing it.
In this lecture I teach you how to locate the clone painting action, run it, and a few tips I have learned to make it work even better for you. Even if you are in an earlier version of Photoshop I still reccommend this lecture for understanding the way clone painting works in Photoshop.
