"Hope for the future" - Painting Timelapse

Hi, everyone! Based on the videoclip "Destiny - Hope for the future" (a remix from Paul Mcartney's song) by Jillian Aversa and Zircon, I decided to make this illustration. The total time was roughly 4 hours and it was made in Manga Studio. I hope you like it!I also share with you some news of what's going on here, as I've been missing for a long time! :D

Flower of Life - Painting Timelapse

Last weeks I've been playing with the new Windows version of Krita, and I'm very happy to say that it has taken a big step forward! It's now much more stable, and it works smoothly. While some things still could use some improvement... it's already more than capable to achieve amazing results with digital painting. In this post I share with you the timelapse of a quick painting I did with it so you can see how it works, and also talk about the things I like about Krita :)

Drunken Sailor - Painting Timelapse

This painting was inspired by the popular song of the same name. I used Manga Studio 5 in this one, and I was looking forward to achieve several things that I never did before... at least not specifically. The water and sky where probably the hardest part, but after some back and forth I'm pretty happy with how they look. Also I wanted to keep the lineart in this one, and make clean borders. Hope you like it!

Of course you can paint textures into Blender, but even if you prefer to do it using 2D painting softwares, this feature can be an invaluable help.
