Below you will find two videos where I work on painting my bobcat. In the first video, I go through the basic process I use to paint my photo. In the second video, I get even more artistic. :)
Be sure to grab my free brushset I use for my paintings in this post.
I always start my paintings with a photo I have already blended with textures and backgrounds. That photo is then "pre-painted" using an auto-painting program to give me a head start on the painting. By pre-painting in an auto painting program, I can decide before I start the actual painting if the subject will work well as a painting. There are many auto-painting programs out there. In the past, I have often used different versions of Topaz Impression. Currently, I have found great success using a program called Impresso Pro by Jixipix. Impresso Pro is available for both the desktop and the iPad.
If you're new here, please check out my textures and backgrounds. With every painting, I always start with blending my photo with them to get the photo "paint ready" before beginning in Procreate. They also make great beginning backgrounds for your "from scratch" paintings you wish to do. :) Be sure to sign up for the mailing list, too, so you can be notified of new additions to the website!
