Digital PORTRAIT Painting Video - Watch over my Shoulder - Ep. 2


This is a recording of a digital portrait art painting in a renaissance style that took originally over 10 hours of painting time.
You will be able to participate in this "WATCH OVER MY SHOULDER" episode (Nr. 2) to grasp just everything I did to create this painting.

This painting is one of my most difficult ones, and it's surely one of the most sophisticated paintings I've done so far, and I'm so happy that I have captured it.

Come with me to this beautiful journey of portrait painting.
I am commenting the painting at the first 10 minutes, where I will give you briefly just every information about this painting, like where the idea was coming from, what helped me, how to draw the sketch and how to apply the colors.
For those of you having the MA-Brushes, there is a file included with the brush list. (This video is also interesting for you if you haven't got the MA-Brushes.)

I've sped it up for your convenience a little bit - the whole sketch is still quite slow 1,5x speed and the painting is 3x speed, that's perfect for understanding what's going on.

This digital portrait painting here will bring you back to the time of the renaissance where the painter had the important role of taking a picture from somebody for the posterity. There were no mobile phones, no cameras. The painter had to capture it all in a scene full of characteristics and beauty.

You want to achieve something very special with your portrait art, but you don't know how?
You don't have to invent new stuff, the most beautiful style is given to us by every renaissance painter. Let's learn from them!
Beauty is timeless.
Follow me along from idea, to sketch, to finish, how I'm painting this renaissance warlord with all the details.
