SeniorMan by PatrickBrown SeniorMan by PatrickBrown
Lately I've been testing myself and trying new things. So I'm trying this new style, it's straight from Photoshop using the brush tool. I like it because it's much quicker than my usual way of doing things, well kind of.

But I don't know everything about this way of art, I have a lot to learn and I'm very keen to know more. Does anyone know of any tutorials or even online courses that teach this way of art?

I was very inspired by Darren Yeow, a friend of mine, he is absolutely amazing at what he does..


And I was also inspired by Charlie Bowater [link] who does the same kind of art.

For a good PS tutorial, I like watching a french artist on YouTube named (and ID), Stephanie Valentin. Here is a link to her step by step tutorial on how to draw Wolverine. Because she uses step-by-step instructions (including text), it is a great way see how to use a lot of PS tools and how to use them including some great techniques to create specific looks and textures (i.e hair and clothing) and how to make the brushes, if applicable in order to do it. I thought this video would be great resource for you since you like to draw characters with varying details. I hope this helps you in your journey for trying something new. Although, I am not sure if I put the link correctly. Below the link is the info needed to find the video, if the link does not work, okay.

When a hip is broken, I shall be there.

When a pair of dentures has gone missing, I shall be there.

When the orderlies at the home are being mean again, I. Shall. Be. There.

For I am...

SENIOR MAN!

...

This.

I blame on insomnia.

Keep up the good work, Sir Brown!

If you search Photoshop tutorials on YouTube and here on DA, you may find something. Maybe specify the keywords to say painterly or some such. But I have to tell you, nothing really gets it into you like lots of practice. I've been using Photoshop for almost ten years and I'm still learning. There are many things I want to do that I haven't learned to do yet, but, it'll all come in time. For me as well for you.

Good luck.

Burn and dodge tools can be very helpful with shading and highlights ... and smudge or blur to de-grain them!

I've archived a ton of tutorials of Youtube that deals with all sorts of Photoshop subjects. Try there. I also bought 2 reference books called HI-FI COLOR FOR COMICS, and MASTERING DIGITAL COLOR. There are even tutorials and group sites here on DeviantArt that have tons of tips and tricks for Photoshop. Love your work by the way...
