Cape Koronos Walk-through by JoshEiten Cape Koronos Walk-through by JoshEiten
By no means am I a master at painting, traditional or digital, at all whatsoever. In any case, I decided to record my progress on my latest painting, Cape Koronos via screenshots. If you're curious to know how I work maybe this will help. Note that I don't exactly have a set step-by-step way I paint yet, so my next walk-through might be completely different in approach.

I hope you find it useful! If you've got any constructive feedback on my process or this walk-through itself, please tell! Most importantly, if you have any further questions about my process for this piece, feel free to ask :D

Here is the original work: [link]

I'm curious, you did explain the process, but you didn't say anything about your "tools". I mean, d'you use a pad and a stylus, for example? I don't know about these things

Yeah, tablet and stylus. I'd never waste my time trying to do this with a mouse ^^

I must try your fantastic tutorial. You work so incredibly fast. What takes you 15 min. for the beginning fase already takes me an hour. :XD: And than mine still won't look that good. I always wonder about those last few steps. It's a mystery to me how you get your amazing sketch to look so detailed afterwards. Do you make sketches of what you want before you start. Or do you just start with a general idea and then go with the flow?

I did this a while back. The more detailed and specific the idea, the more useful it is to have a sketch beforehand.

The beginning 20 minutes of a painting are by far the most important, and the most difficult. You lay the groundwork really early on. Details take more time, but are less difficult to depict. Without the proper start, you set yourself up for a lot of issues later on.

The more you practice, the faster you'll get. Doing un-detailed studies from life and photos might really help. Just make sure you're recreating, not just copying. Being good at copying won't make you good at producing your own work.

Good luck! :D

Thank you. I will spend more time on the groundwork before I move on. That is very helpful advice. :D

Even tho it's not step by step, having some screens and an explanation still help. I'm trying my first dp and I've just hit a wall on how to create rock texture with dp. Like you did with your mountain Either way, I'll keep looking at this for a reference.
