CtrlPaint.com best instruction for digital painting in Photoshop

August 10, 2015

Are you new to learning digital painting? OR do you have some experience painting but want to expand your knowledge on digital painting and apply it to other avenues of art and design; especially for art and entertainment. Such as concept art, character design, vehicle design, Illustration, and other fundamentals of art and design? If so I recommend http://www.cntrlpaint.com

Ctrlpaint was created by Matt Kohr who has worked as a professional industry concept artist for many popular movies and games. He decided to share his experience and help direct enthusiastic artists’ with solid fundamentals for painting as well as solid skills in using the Photoshop platform.

The ctrlpaint site has a ton of free videos under the video library section. They are usually about 5 minute videos with clear organized instruction from Matt Kohr. Besides the free videos you can purchase the premium videos ranging roughly an hour long for an average price of about $10. I would recommend ctrlpaint for painting in Photoshop first before you invest elsewhere. If you get a chance to check out the site feel free to leave comments here about your experience.

Thanks,

Michael Burton new preview video for his book “Let Me Paint a Picture”

June 23, 2012

This is a book I self published and revised about 2  years ago. The idea to create and publish a book came from my mother after reading two of my written works. The first was “let me paint a picture” which turned out to be the title and epilogue for the book, and Struggle through seasons” a very personal but creative piece about my life.

It took a little over a year to complete the book, and was hard to categorize it since it was put together a little differently than the average book. I settled for calling it a creative memoir. I wrote, illustrated and published, Let Me Paint A Picture: My Life, Growth, and Testimony. The book has given me an even bigger picture about my career and life. Realizing another side of me that loves writing poetry and heavily conscious lyrics. Also, I knew I had a testimony to share with others; especially knowing God had granted me a second chance in life at such an early age; and why I’m so passionate about using my gifts and creating with purpose.

I peeled away at the layers of my life; touching on topics such as: Love, relationships, family, survival, dreams, goals, growing, life and death; journeying from child, to teen and adulthood,

The Art of Perspective: The Ultimate Guide for Artists in Every Medium

October 20, 2011

Instructor and author Phil Metzger

The art of perspective gives a very generous amount of step by step instructions and examples on drawing and painting in perspective.  I’ve read and used many books on perspective but they lacked steps and not enough examples on various subjects in perspective. The art of perspective is clear, keeps your interest, and uses so many useful approaches for landscape, houses, buildings, technical, floors, still life, 3 dimensional assignments, etc. the list goes on. I feel this is the essentials of perspective that’s great for beginners, intermediate, and even somewhat skillful artists; as he also has a great section on painting, as well as running into perspective problems that need to bend the rules.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

New Book Review on Fantasy Art

May 31, 2010

Draw & Paint The Realm of Faerie By Ed Org

I recently bought this book off amazon. What I liked most from this title is the style and  tons of examples on illustrating fantasy characters.  It’s not exactly a how to draw book. It’s more for people who already have solid drawing skills and want to take it to another level by, demonstrating great compositional skills, how and where to find classic reads for inspiration, setting up live models, and props for realistic reference drawing.
