Here is a timelapse video showing part of the process for creating my latest book cover illustration. I work digitally in Photoshop, but using a pretty traditional approach. I sketch out the composition first, block in color and value, and then work with a variety of brushes and textures to refine the details. In this demo, I am painting the face of one of the characters in a realistic style. The title of the book is “Disarming Donner” by Charlie Cochet, published by Dreamspinner Press.
Step into the weird and wonderful world of artist Paul Richmond, where anything could go down -- even a pin-up boys' pants! We're all a little high on paint fumes around here, so grab a brush and join the painting party!
