CG Cookie Livestream - Character Spitpaint - 7.29.15

Artist: Tim Von Rueden (vonn)
Moderator: Joe Chico

We've been doing a lot of focused studies so today we are going to have some fun with a character spitpaint. I will also go through some new tools I've been working with lately including the Mixer Brush. I have to remind myself to continue experiment with the different tools and settings Photoshop has to offer, and I hope you guys do the same! The subject matter is a hardened survivor named J-KUB. Come join in have some fun and hopefully learn something in the process!

Hello!  My name is Kate, I’m 21, and I need a car so I can work, and get back on my feet.  I have so many ideas to help me be self-sufficient, but I need leverage.  I need your help, Deviantart!  Please donate 1$ to the cause of The Great Kate Escape!  Escape from homelessness!  1$ helps more than you know, so give what you can.  I have checkpoints on certain goals, and I’ll post a video of something the community decides what funny, or scary thing to do on camera!  People must post what they would want me to do on camera in the journal description and I’ll tally up the vote. 

If you can’t donate then spread the link, please. <3
