Digital painting tutorial of Darth Maul from Star Wars.
Here is another digital painting tutorial on how to paint a character using Photoshop and Wacom intuo tablet. You will learn how to paint a character focusing on light and shadow. I know this sound a bit odd, but this is the method that is widely use by most concept artists for video games and movies. The method of painting will provide you the more dramatic and accuracy for your illustration and concept art. This style, I believed, is strongly influenced by John Singer Sargent, Ander Zorn then later Richard Schmidt and Craig Mullins. It begins with impressionist approach (digital speed painting) then end up with realistic result focusing on light source.
