Buy This Tutorial Here - This painting was inspired by an interaction I had with a very large bull in Yellowstone Park. I spent the better part of an hour sketching and photographing this heavy hitter before he became annoyed with my presence. Although I was a good 50-60 feet away this large fella raised up from this laying position and turned his head to a 3/4 profile and give me the 'evil eye' and express his displeasure with me. At that point I felt moving on was the best idea!
In this tutorial we will learn to use our acrylic paints and simple tricks to create long, short, dark and light fur textures. We will learn how to use warm and cool contrast, dark and light contrast and value changes to create depth and texture in fur. We will also learn how to use a sponge to paint misted backgrounds to create depth and mood. This tutorial also shows how to paint ivory and get that rugged, battle beaten look to horns. I will also demo the use of airbraush as an alternative to sponging the misted ares.
